DEBOSS GARAGE make sure you cover custom fuel economy builds and what transmissions can be used in engine swaps... Can you still use Chevy pre-Duramax/Allison transmissions from the old 6.5L Detroit for a 5.9? And vise-versa?
Where the hell are all of these engines? Been around decades in cabs that are just itching to rot away, yet sill haven't seen a single unit in the wreckers that I regularly go, nor a Kijiji part out ad within 500 miles.
Dream project (well .. perhaps aside a diesel/nitrous hybrid rocket on the back of a coke bottle mopar, lol) is to stuff a 5.9 into a '69 or '70 Kingswood or something similar - stylin' service wagon that I could still afford to drive at $5/gal.
Great vid though.
I don't want to hear anymore comments about about Chinese shit ,they are as capable as anybody else as far as quality is concerned ,all the top quality manufacturers are using them as can be seen by this vid .On the other hand if you want cheap ,shit they will oblige ,and nobody can touch them on price .And the good old US of A queue' s up for it ,then moans when it let's them down .
The retainers look like the old retainer has a flat I dont know counter sink at the bottom of the taper and looks like new retainers are just a taper with no flat on the bottom of taper.
. I thought I seen it first time had to rewind couple times to confirm.
Hey man absolutely love the show just started watching it recently. One thing im finding ridiculously funny is how many ford commercials there are with your apparent love for recent models lol. Youtube ad win/fail right there lol
6.4 HEMI! I have a 2003 Ram 2500 with the 5.7l hemi and I tow 8k+ behind it at least once every few months. Does good, maintains above the speed limit all the time and averages 8mpg while towing that. I like it, does what I need it to do.
If you really want to torque everything get a motion pro 08-0380. I use mine frequently for tight spots, I've even put a ratchet in it before. Good for up to 100 ftlb I believe. Just make sure to use it at a 90* angle to the torque wrench so you don't have to do all kinds of complicated math to recalculate the torque.
I love re building.. Never get to do much of it anymore. I think it is great that you are picky. As for torqing the turbo bolts. If you take a stubby box wrench with a 3/8 extension square in it you can do it backwards. I didn't have one so I made one. It wasn't pretty but it worked for me. I had a super picky client over my shoulder other wise I would have just wrenched it.
DEBOSS GARAGE ,
haha. the mighty powerstroke!
I love my diesels. I enjoy my duramax, that being said, I respect the 5.9.
The simplicity of them makes me want to throw one in a old crew cab, square body, 2500 chev I bought off of kijiji.
This video series is much appreciated, and is very helpful and indispensable to d.i.y.ers like myself and others who watch.
Keep up the good work sir! One day I'll see if you have some time for a lml duramax egr delete/dpf removal show. (50k more to go before warranty is off!)
There is actually a manual that is available the tell you the torque of I was to say any bolt by using the shank measuerment and threads pitch and the threads per inch.its been a minute since i used it but i'm thinking im close on the variables.
Not bad actually! It kind of turned me off drinking it. I have a barrel full of molasses right now that has an engine block in it (used water instead of antifreeze rusting up the water jackets) and the seat rails from the GTO in it. It works even better, it just takes 2 weeks. I dunked the entire studebaker in a tank of molasses and stripped the entire car https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fvTgnbV7H4&list=PLYbEYVyB_NH_upTY54Y10uO3L8Qvd6Vfv
I have done that on my own truck. I don't want to risk telling people to hit their timing cover and telling me they cracked it. I'm glad I'm not the only one though. There is some footage of this dowel almost all the way out when I first opened it up
