Talked to Tadd, he said to run the injector plugged in, at 150-200rpms there is little compression but at 2000... It will burn ok... I'll drive it home then let Bennet work on it I think, I just dont have the time... Frickin sucks...:confused:

Joe, why are you letting Bennet from P.A. do the work? Isn't he a dodge guy now or did his business partner just switch? I don't know Bennet personally, but hear he's a good guy. But his business partner over here is shady! He blew up a customer's brand new rear end moving the truck to and from his shop when the customers only wanted an oil change. The shop that built the rear end said the damage to the gears could only be caused by the tires catching traction while the wheels were spinning. Partner still denies doing damage. Anyway...if I hadn't returned my engine stand I'd be more than willing to help you rebuild your engine instead of spending all that time on labor, but I'm sure you probably need your truck back asap and I don't have that kind of time to devote to an engine build 24/7. But I wouldn't charge ya...i'm sure knowing that I fathered your children was enough for you. lol :D Hope everything works out for you Joe.

I thought you had a powerstroke. Sticks go in dodges.

Joe sorry to hear that man. When you said you could hear something running down into the sump I just had a bad feeling. But as stated at least now you have the opportunity to make it better. I'll be heading to my parent's this weekend if you want the forged rods I've got. I've got a hook up or two at the IH dealership if you need parts. IIRC they had a complete rebuild kit that came with everything including pistons, rings, pins, all gaskets, rod main and cam bearings, etc., etc., for right around a G. Find a good machine shop to do the bore/hone and have the heads and decks surfaced. If you need any help with anything let me know.
