Make Sure....

...your pedistal bolts are tight..or the o-rings blow out, make a huge cloud of white smoke and leave you stranded on the side of the road! fixed now and it runs even better!

Re: Make Sure....

I'm sorry for this really dumb question........ Where are the pedestal bolts???
I'm new to diesels and I've heard many parts called by different terms or names and I'm completely vacant on this term.
