Got problems with the one I sent you? It was brand new from II when you got it. Unfortunately they're not the most reliable piece...
Ummm, which did you send me? You mean the tube you sent in the box that you said was the wrong one? I don't remember you sending me one. Now II sent me one when I had you send the turbo directly to them to be rebuilt before I ever got/seen it
That one was on the turbo when I pulled it and I didn't screw it up while I was pulling the turbo- I screwed it up on the bench afterwards
Then I ordered another one ($109 shipped 2nd day with oil feed gasket) and the damn collar that goes into the HPOP
cover broke off it right under that o-ring and I had to dig it out. I creased that tube yanking the turbo out because I was so pissed off
I have 2 more coming in this morning from II via UPS overnighted by 1030am. I'm actually hoping to end up with a spare but who knows. It doesn't help having big friggin hands trying to get under there, lol. I might try something else this morning- when I pulled the turbo I unbolted the pedestal to make it easier to remove the turbo. It also allowed more room to pull the tube out of the HPOP
cover- I may try that to re-install it, might get lucky who knows. I just need to get it done and get the damn truck back up to Logan/CenTex.
I was actually even thinking about ordering a TN 6.0L turbo pedestal
They aren't the purdiest but look like it'd be easier to remove/install the turbo without having to pull the drain tube everytime. I had a local company (Apollo for those of you local) make me a drain tube since I have one of the good collars left. I had my ol' lady swing by and pick it up for me while she was out and when she seen it she noticed that the fitting's I.D. was smaller than the II's. The guy told her "it just looks
that way". Well, according to my sharpie that will slide right into the II's and won't even start in the Apollo's. Sucks to because Apollo only charged $27 versus the $85 each + shipping for the II tube
LMAO- I've almost spent as much money that I was saving by doing it myself
Anyone know where to order the collars II uses to slide into the HPOP
Tyler you have a PM
