Default Bringing my truck back from the dead (sort of)

So, my truck was rode hard and put up wet (literately), a trans issue that I couldn't figure out combined with cold of ND and other life events had it sitting for over a year. Ill be updating this as I go along and seeing what went wrong and right building this rig and running it hard.

I used fuel lines from a generic auto store near where I built it, and every one of them split wide open. Nothing but NAPA -40 stuff for me from now on.

I found where Trim A spring failed, causing all my issues in the trans an toasting my C2s and hurting the hub. Also figured out that my LB7 trans had a later model pump on it from SC which threw me for a loop trying to figure out what was going on. I had a core out of an LLY so decided to just use that one and swap VBs and oilpumps/bell housing.

Truck had a real bad hazing issue from sitting so threw a set of 100% over injectors at it.

Plan is down the road to go back into the engine (probably use a core block that I have with Finger's pistons, a AF cam and a few other things.

My lower turbo on the twin set would sometimes get the plastic fender hot, so I wrapped it. Guess I found salt somewhere before I parked it on my deployment. Lucky me.

had an injector cup leaking when I tear it down for good I'll put the threaded cups in.

Sorry your having troubles but glad to see you back around. I thought you might have gotten locked up for busting the tower in one of those B52’s

I just left active duty, flying cargo now for Kalitta Air. I'm going to Alaska Air National Guard flying tankers as a traditional guardsman.
And still have my 5 tons to play with...
And maybe a duramax if this thing stops fighting me

Looking good! I'm curious as to how the threaded cup install goes. I just did injectors on my LB7 last weekend and everything "seemed" to be fine. I didn't pull cups (hardware store was closed to get a lag bolt/hose setup) but all the cups stayed in place. Using the Merchant Auto removal tool made life simple.

It's honestly going to be babied for the next couple of years until I have money to go back into it, I would guess at least a year before anything happens to the engine. But I do want to get some info out when I get a chance about things that worked well and things that didn't for a work/toy truck
