Amazing, a new starter and my 33yr old 6.2 Detroit will start just as easily and as fast as a new Duramax! Dec 11, 2017 at 10:53 PM

        Yeah but people get butt hurt over Duramax too. Frankly, as far as I'm concerned its Cat and everything else. Old school Detroit Diesels a gtg also.
        I drive a Cummins atm.

        I don't like the computer BS of the Duramax, too much to go wrong. This old Detroit is super simple. I'd like to get my hands on a LMTV, they have a Cat. 3116 I believe. The Pete wrecker I used to drive also had a Cat and I loved it.

        Sure is. Property we're cleaning up is downhill away from the road 130yds, not wet other than a couple spots but parts can be slick after rain. No official driveway in it yet. Just a two wheel path. Also need 4x4 and low range for pulling some roots. It's put us behind schedule.

        The builder actually called earlier this afternoon, the part he was waiting on finally came in. He was putting everything else aside to get my t-case done. Will be picking it up tomorrow.

      Huge surprise today. Little over 255 miles round trip and my old M1008 got better than 18 mpg! Max speed, 55 mph. Engine won't turn faster.

      Interesting ancestry.com finds. Turns out I have a family member that was a spy for George Washington.

      Now I'm impressed with the Detroit in my truck, 8 degrees when I had to make a firewood run last night and she fired up beautifully.

        6.2 diesel in my '84 M1008. Too many people confuse the diesel used in the olde Chevy trucks with the Olds conversion diesel so I just refer to it as a Detroit. As that's who designed and built those engines.

        It's got a good pedigree behind it. The only big diesel experience I have besides the old 2 stroke Detroit is Mack which I can't stand, and Cat which I really like.

        I will ask my mom, I know it but I'm not sure how she spells it. Thanks Pod, I'm sure her family will appreciate it..edit..It's Julianna, but pronounced Julie on ah. They usually call her Onna (phonetic).

        Nope, still can't. The guy contacted me again and the new starter didn't do the trick. He's changing the starter relay now :( I'm running out of time, I NEED a truck!

        It does get exciting. A lot of times I get them holding up on me so they're busting me somehow. Being colorblind I can't always see them so I have to pick my sets carefully so I have a way to more easily see movement. Sometimes I really don't care, it's fun just being out there.

        Wow now that you mention it I might have been staring right at them, I'm partially color blind.

        You might have missed seeing some. I'm really bad, to the point it almost cost me my CDL because I failed to color blind test. My red/green sight is almost nonexistent lol. How bad I want people to see from colorblind eyes for a day, it's impossible to explain to others what I see.

      I believe I was also using the antec Kohler, can't remember for sure though. Mine started running hot and fried cpu, not exactly sure the cause, but I did see one or two dried watermarks on mboard.

        I've had no leaks at all but did notice the pump getting louder. After more testing last night it got to 212°, the pump isn't circulating like it should so I'm going to try to pick up a different cooler. Probably go just fans/heatsink to save some cash. I already blew everything I had on my AR lol.

      May be scarce a bit. Either the water pump in my PC is taking a shit, or my processor is about to. It doesn't like 165°f

        Everything is running as it should, also a Linux system so it's very low resource. I actually don't doubt the water pump could be going bad, it's run almost 24/7 for the last 4 years lol. Sometimes months on end until I have a power failure due to weather.

        Good as gold now, picked up a new Corsair H115i today from my local favorite PC shop. Idles at 66.2 and 70.8 and runs at 97 when I push it more. Good for another 5 years.
