  1. I must agree, no champions for me if I can avoid it. Last year finally put my td9 91 together, new plugs(champions), as told by the parts store to be the only ones available, and out of the 4 new ones, 2 didn't work, pulled 2 of the old ones out of the junk pile, and they worked just fine. My advice, if you 4, buy 6. Just my opinion and experience Mark
  2. I will go out to the property and get the pump numbers tomorrow, thanks for all and any help Mark
  3. It's an early td8e with the 239 turbo. And yes cold start position.
  4. Its obvious the pump has been rebuilt at a prior time with all the bolt marking paint used for tamper evidence, just curious if when it was rebuilt it might have been put together improperly? Thanks for any in site Mark
  5. close up pic to show old bolt/timing wear marks on timing gear
  6. position it runs ok, not good start position though, side window timing way off on pump
  7. Last fall I performed an inframe on my td8e as it was hard to start, all complete, back together, still needed either to start, and to kick up rpms beyond start position of the throttle lever. tore back apart, made sure gears all lined up properly with the timing marks, but noticed the pump had at one time been timed differently by the bolt wear marks on the gear, timed the pump aligning the internal mark through the side window of bosch av pump, which put it back to the original worn marks on the gear. Wouldn't start at all !! put the pump back where it was, runs like before, is it possible the pump has been rebuilt and internally timed incorrectly? it is leaking into the crankcase, so need to pull it and get it rebuilt, hoping it might get put back together correctly. will resize picks and include. is it possible to put these pumps back together incorrectly internally? Thanks Mark
  8. Have to resize it, shows a bit of the missing pipe for yours
  9. My td9 had seat issues before I got it I assume, as someone replaced the original with a verry plush, high back car seat. Verry comfortable and still hinges forward to access the battery. Far from original I know, but😁
  10. Great pics all. I too had a rim issue last summer with rust around the valve stem rotting it out, welded flat steel strips in place, relocated valve stem hole, all good. These pics of bare ground, not to mention grass, are really making me want to run some equipment, unfortunately there's still 3 feet of snow on the ground😣
  11. You are breaching the limits if you get rain, down here in Idaho, our structured load limits are set to 40 lbs per square foot, or higher if in the high altitudes, my experience is we get much wetter snow than up north. We have a cabin that we will be visiting up towards central this next week. Has been the norm that the snow there is verry dry, and not much more than 4 to 5 feet deep. Looking forward to some negative digit snow machining 😁
  12. Great work Tony, truck looks awesome, a radio will look good in there, that is a big gap in the middle of the dash, you thinking old school? My 1200 crew cab has a Dodge tube type in it. Reminds me of the old days, turn it on, see the lights glow as the tubes warm up. Can't wait to see the truck all done
  13. Not sure about your model, but my td8e has the opening to fill oil in the valve cover, but you're right, who takes the hood off to do that, top it off through the dipstick tube, funnel will assist Mark
  14. Thanks so much for the pics and advice on your work. It makes future repairs of our own look less daunting.
