Hi Guys it has been a couple week's cense I posted with my head removal and heading to machine shop. cracked in #1 and #4 right between intake and exhaust valves. Repaired and new seats installed, 4) new starter valves installed. Because I had over heating problems I removed water pump and flushed and back flushed the radiator. I am now all cleaned out and water pump looked good. Did get some mouse debris from back flush from upper tank. Install head this week with new head gasket all back together and valves adjusted, so it was time to start it. Fire and started right away on gas ran for about ten minutes while I bleed fuel filters and injector lines. Switched over to diesel and kept running set at medium rpm and let run, had some popping and missing a little smoke. So went and cracked injector line again, it did seem to run better but still some missing and popping would cut in and out on it own. I was watching the Temperature gauge like a hawk went up to beginning of the green run zone never got hot so I was happy, think that problem is fixed. Rpm started to run up on it own, engine did seem to smooth some. Diesel started flowing out the injector pump top cover and oil fill. so I chicken out and shut it down. Total run time on diesel was about 45 minutes. The injector pump will be my next project. Is the shaft seal something I can change my self? I have read where guy could not get the seal to fit and used O rings. Or should I send it out? and Where would you send it?
