I'll be in the office Wednesday and Thursday. If you're coming through one of those days let me know and I'll set them outside the fence on the gravel driveway. Grab them whenever is convenient for you.  Good luck!

Who knew a flywheel had springs.   :dunno:  :o  Guess I'm still old school chevy.  :chuckle:  I mentioned when I took it in, " I've been expecting it to be due for a clutch".

They all have springs.




Clutch, yes.   It's the 2 piece heavy flywheel that was new to me.

Dual mass flywheel I think they call it. I really derped on that picture I posted. Oops.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Lots of things wonít set codes. Lots and lots of things.

The tough thing about clutches and associated parts is itís tough to accurately diagnose a problem there when you canít see it. Most technicians donít like to guess whatís wrong with a vehicle. They want to be able to verify it. Sometimes to be able to verify something, things need to come apart.  Sometimes theyíre wrong. Not often( at least not the good techs) but sometimes. Sometimes itís a process of elimination.

Glad they got it fixed for you.

Oh, that's how you do it?  If there isn't a code, I start with the cheapest part that could be the cause and keep replacing increasingly expensive parts until I get the right one.  I figure any wrong guesses would need to be replaced at some point anyways.   :chuckle:

To their credit, any part put on that didn't change or improve conditions came back off and I wasn't billed.  Not that bottom line wasn't a chunk of change.  :yike:  Stimulus funds are gone and some.  :(   It runs better, drives better, and that gives me piece of mind.   :tup:  Hopefully this is one hunting season I won't need a tow, knock on wood.

Didn't have time to research and make a decision.  Another 15 years and 200,000 miles to decide, if it  gets the same mileage.

Iíd start with injectors or your injector pump, all the pump does is make pressure
For the injectors to pop off, those themselves being a precision machines spring loaded device that when the proper pressure is obtained by the pump they atomize fuel, which is why in many manufacturers refer to injectors as nozzles or atomizers.

There could be a worn pintle inside the nozzle, a or a delivery valve may be worn inside the injection pump itself.

One thing to try would be unscrewing your fuel filter and filling it 100% full of
Marvel mystery oil, priming the system and running that through. No worries Iíve started 700+Hp diesels on straight mystery oil. It really cleans up and lubes up pumps and injectors.

Modern diesel is a very dry fuel with very little lubricants left in it due
To emissions.

Iíd start there

Then do a compression test

Adjust your idle speed perhaps

And check your turbo for lash on the compressor wheel

Set your intake/exhaust valves too

Also on the 6BT platform the intake should have a preheater/air charge warmer which if thatís not functioning will cause a very rough idle until the engine has reached operating temperature as diesels are very temperature sensitive and will run very rough if they arenít totally warm

Yeah, that's what we all thought, right?  :rolleyes:  Good news is I had enough time to get our frig repaired(been down for a week) and working this morning for the wife before I left.   :tup:
Rest of the news.........Had truck all loaded and trailer hooked.  Headed out at 11:00 this morning, made it 10 miles before I heard a pop and power dropped, and a engine light indicator came on.  Managed to turn around, limp home and park trailer and truck in shop.  Now I'm wondering just who I pissed off so bad.   :dunno:

Power definitely did not come back.  And there is noise that shouldn't be there.

Check to see if a Boost tube popped off.

Between turbo pipe - cooler  then cooler- intake.

Maybe someone didn't clamp one down tight enough.
