Mom has been in the hospital 3 times in the last month, she is not getting better. Ever since the heart attack and stroke it has been a spiral down. She is alive, but not living at all and this is something we have discussed many times and a DNR has been in place.

She was released today, to the care home, under hospice until I got the following news,,,,,,,

She has a blood infection that is beating the meds and has affected her heart. Only option is surgery, but she is not a candidate. Was told 3 days to a week.

Tomorrow I am bringing her home,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

What about this "Camp fire" in California...and the lost town, Paradise? Prayers all around for those folks.

I know it has been a long drought, but I wonder what negative effect tree huggers may have had to encourage such a savage burn. Not cutting trees, protecting habitat and so forth...??

It is basically forest mismanagement for decades.

link to a good article describing what has happened over the years. It was a study for the Sierra Nevada's but applicable to all of California and many parts elsewhere.

https://lhc.ca.gov/report/fire-mountain-rethinking-forest-management-sierra-nevada


I was fishing up there last year with all the kids, just tragic! Yes it is an management issue with the state and feds, private lands seem to get taken care of just fine. PGE screwed the pooch by not shutting the lines down. Now they are getting the blame when last time they got in trouble for turning it off!

As of now they are asking for funds only or gift cards as goods are overflowing, thank GOD.

Bad new is over 40 are dead so far with over 200 still missing. Most the fatality's were in cars trying to get out or in their homes it is moving that fast.

About 100 miles from here, but it is hazy as can be with bad air quality almost 200 often.

Found a wire on the engine top and hooked it up the oil pressure sender, worked great. Had over 40psi at idle.

While digging, found I have a 6.2, not an issue but still want to ID the block.

Put a pressure gauge on the intake, only 4psi so far. Should be 10-12, needs to be addressed for sure.

No EGR on this, but it does have a funny oil vent system pre-turbo. I do want the other items though so maybe it will not go. I kinda liked how they have it on the 6.2 though, cam driven.

Did an oil change, fuel filter and lots of additive today. Made a mess  :rolleyes: Lost prime to the motor (lift pump up top) and used pressure to get it going. I ordered a new lift pump for this from summit that is a pass through. Will run it with a relay also as stock they are driven via just a pressure switch.

New window moldings/felts ordered too. Bent a few lines to clear other things too, lots of little things I see to make it solid.

Need a real air cleaner I can carry over the 6BT also, this setup is a joke, but it only gets cold air. And look at the battery setup! Tested the Oil pressure sender and it seems to work, but I question the location both for it and the turbo oil. Traced the sender wire and it was only 3 inches long,,,,,,,,,,,,

Now the turbo feed is 45* rotated towards the firewall and the drain is 180 from that. Pretty sure that is not optimal at least for the drain. Looks like it can remedied but how critical is it? I may have to remove the turbo anyway for the air cleaner and intake leak.

Also noticed a chunk out of the balancer which I hear is common and bad news?

I that pic above it has the waste gate mode and no AC (probably a 90s truck.

Just uses a spring on the WG vs a vacuum canister and you can dump the belt drive pump for it as that is all it runs!

The drivers side crosses over the the rear of the turbo side, then it all mixes and some goes to the turbo.

It is only pushing 10psi also. Some will see 12. The Banks manifold is nice but too pricey for this. If I was keeping the motor I would redo the system, stud the motor and have some fun. It runds good so going to add a few gauge and clean some stuff up is all. Been doing lots of reading, just glad I got the 100hp setup.

I gave it up last night and brought it home. Today I started to clean it up and found out a little more.

99% sure after blowing it off I have a 92-93 6.5TD. Ran the pump numbers and came up with that. It is a mechanical pump, no PMD (problem)

Also looks to be a 200hp version, which is near the top of the heap. Has a few wiring issues, not a surprise really.

The stock lift pump is up above the motor, after the stock filter/heater which could account for hard starting.

Got everything for a fluid change today and found it has a swaybar disconnect.

Need to match up the black wheels and get a couple more tires. They will get swapped to spartan 1 for its sale.

Check out how they sealed the tires on the front. Now I need to figure what turbo I have.

The PMD controls the fuel solenoid. They mounted the critter in the valley on the pump!

The air cleaner on this looks like an intercooler at first. Turbo drain is running into the fuel pump block and comes off the turbo at about 45* angle vs on the bottom.

Hard to get good pictures when EVRYTHING is black.

Moms back in the hospital so not much done.

Did find out the door locks work, well 3 of em. First thing is to get the windows working so I can lock it up.

Doesn't leak bad at all, yet. Need a boost gauge and figure out the system it has. Still wondering why the clamp is there?

Actually, it moves around pretty well. No jerk you up torque, but it did 65 easy all the way home and moved well with foot pressure. It does have a little surge when driving, like the TC is unlocking.

It will get cleaned up and then a fluid change. I may address a few small things in the motor but the idea is a solid runner and clean ride.

Will clean up today and really see what motor I have so I can address the PMD and lift pump.

Well, it did happen tonite.  :beercheers: Buddy ran me up, followed back as planned, just took way longer than planned.

Blew a little smoke for the first few miles. Most of the lights worked, 2 windows were open but the heater and radio worked good.

Wasn't sure of the fuel as it was blow 1/4, so I dropped in $50 which brought me up past half. Water light was blinking so hoping that would displace it enough.

So fuel gauge works, some of the dash lights. Oil is pegged out and voltage showed 12 but rose and fell with rpm so GTG.

It did 65 easy all the way and pulled good but is no dmax for sure. Thought it was dripping oil when we stopped for diner in Lincoln but stick showed full (black as you know what).

Dropped at moms house for now as no where to park it now. No oil was there when parked so it must have been from another vehicle.

85 and it is a 4L80, so thinking it is a 6.5. Plus it has the vacuum pump below where the 6.2 was on top. Then again it has reg belts vs a serpentine system which says 6.2.

Working on ride to get it now, just an hour away.

« on: November 06, 2018, 11:46:52 PM »
The good;

Starts easy, not to loud or much rattle, hardly any smoke. NO SMOG NEEDED, EVER!
Hydro brakes from the factory.
4L80 transmission, shifts good, all electrical seems to work, even the windows but they need rebuilding.
4inch Lift, 33in tires, 2 are OK but no cord showing
Barn Doors, no rust, glass all good


The bad?

Door dent is a little worse than it looks and actually goes from the front door to the rear panel a little.
Looks like a home made turbo setup and still not sure if its a 6.2 or 6.5
Exhaust goes down through the right fender liner, then back and under the frame to the stock muffler, sure its home made.
No 3rd row seat (but I have one) No headliner.
Has a newer style receiver welded under the stock and will need to be cut off.
Lines cut off for the AC and the rear unit removed.


The plan;

Finish up the original Sub with parts from this (lift, tires/wheels, bumpers) and flip it, so I loose no $$$ at all.
