Putting truck back together... few questions

1. I pulled the valve body and filter from the trans. I have the new valve body anyone know torque specs for reinstall? How many quarts of trans fluid do you think I need to put back in?

2. I have a 2001 van turbo that will replace my 2000 psd truck turbo. Is the van turbo's ebpv the same as the truck one?

Thanks and I am so excited to get this thing back on the road!

1. Torque to 80-100 in/lb.
I would start with 6 quarts, then start it and adjust from there.

2. The EBPV is different and you will need an adapter to fit the exhaust up to your SD.

Re: Putting truck back together... few questions

Ok the valve body and injectors are back in. Got scared for a moment when 6-8oz of coolant blew out the glow plug holes the first time I started it. Called beans they said wait 10 minutes before I try to purge the cylinders again to see if a cup was bad. Waited and tried it again and no more coolant.

So I buttoned everything up and am waiting on the van tubo adapter from beans and a wire for the chip... I guess I lost mine.

I have two final questions though:

1. How do I go about refilling my hpop?
2. Do I really need to start the motor with the valve covers off? If I do does this mean all intercooler pipes and y-pipe need to be hooked up?

Re: Putting truck back together... few questions

Pull the plugs from the front of the heads, one will be the ICP sensor, fill both heads till full. Then pull the RH plug from the HPOP resevoir and top that off too.

Why do you think you need to start the motor with the covers off?

And if you must do it this way just hook up the engine connector and leave the IC pipes off, just be careful there is nothing loose that can get drawn into the engine.

Good Luck

Re: Putting truck back together... few questions

I was looking through instruction stuff on powerstroke.org and thats what they said to do.... I buttoned up the motor anyway so all I have to do is put the new turbo on.

So I pull the ICP out and just poor oil in there and put it back in? Sorry for all the questions but this is my first diesel motor I have ever worked on.

Thanks for all your help.

Yup, and do the same for the other side.

Should pop off right away.
