Re: Deisel help please
Aren't we full of good news this morning?
While you are here, what is your definition of IN-FRAME?
Sorry KULTULZ, missed this one. Did many an in-chassis "major" which is essentially a rebuild of a diesel in the frame. Usually a full rebuild, you just use the truck as an engine stand.
I'd do the same for a gasser if I had to, only have had to do one that way, dead on a construction site, needed a rebuild but had a good crank and decent bore. Can't say its the best way to do it, but in this case it did fine.
To the original poster, make sure they didn't knock off any boots anywhere, with the work they did, they SHOULD be sure they didn't blow off a boot to the intercooler or any of the other junctions, but you never know. All it takes is one that popped off and you have zero boost
My guess is the turbo core charge is valid though
