You could get adjustable pedals in some GMT800 applications, such as the Suburban. My Quadrasteer is fairly loaded, and does have adjustable pedals. I think it is only missing the rear seat DVD...

That reminds me, I should log my Suburban. I just added WeatherTech mats, and I run my pedals all the way forward because I have stupid long legs. I remember wondering at the time if it would cause a...

You've got my lathe beat; best I can tell it is from 1890-1910. Still works fine for a lot of things, just not as easy as modern lathes. Want to cut threads? Yeah, that'll take 15 minutes to set up,...

Get a coolant leak test kit. With the engine cold, pump the cooling system up to 20 PSI. Now crawl around and look for the leak. It will be easy to spot. I've done this several times, adding pressure...

I think you'd have to pull the whole front cover. I don't think you could see enough through the seal hole. But you could try, maybe with a borescope?


The right answer is to get a scope and...

Since you've got the filter delete anyway, sure, might as well put the WIF delete cap on. Or just bypass the whole filter head. That's what I do on my truck. Then you don't have to worry about the...

I've got an AirDog pushing 10+ PSI on my Suburban, and the WIF sensor doesn't leak. It's possible you got a bad WIF sensor, or a bad O-ring on it. That, or your AirDog is set really high on the...

If you used a high quality assembly lube, you should be fine leaving the glow plugs in. I did mine that way when I built it, just unplugged the FICM fuse. But it is less stress on the engine to...

I've bought 3 sets of injectors from them, and never had a problem. The reman lines were a disaster, but on the whole, they are good to work with. So while those turbos might be excellent, it isn't a...

Oh yes they would. Their "reman" LB7 fuel lines are a steaming pile of garbage. Put a set on my Suburban, and 4 of the 8 leaked. Over-torqued them as much as I felt safe, and 3/8 still leaked. Pulled...

I did ARP studs on my truck back when the motor was stock. Drove it a couple years, then had a glow plug go through the #1 cylinder, so I tore it down. One of the ARP studs had backed out of the...

Once you're happy with the setup, will the changes make their way back into the base DT OS? Or at least as an option for people with similar aggressive clutches? Mine has a hard 2-1 shift when cold...

The ABS module is on the driver's side near the front. If it got filled with water, it could be causing all kinds of problems. I'd start there, then look for damaged wiring under the truck. Something...

Man, this has me nervous about the LML swap I'm doing for my uncle. We're putting a 2014 LML into an old F350. Pre-smog, so it will be deleted. I figured it should be pretty straightforward, but now...

Push to start & keyless entry are pretty great for laziness. But for a work vehicle like a truck, it can be nice to have the key so you explicitly tell the truck what you want to do. You can usually...

If I recall, the difference is the 5 wire is actually a MAF + IAT in one sensor, where the old 3 wire is just a MAF, with a separate IAT sensor. The car may not have used an IAT, so you might have to...
