I stumbled across a badly wrecked LMM Duramax and found…
A Banks Intake, Weather Tec floor mats and a Banks Six Gun Tuner. All for only $75!
After cleaning the Banks filter, waiting for a pre filter and correct LBZ Banks intake elbow to arrive, I install the goods!
I went back to the same Junkyard a week later and scored 2 good used Interstate batteries, 2014 Like new vinyl seat covers, 2006 Yukon Bose Door speakers and chrome door handles. Installed the same day. $60
It does not bother me as much as it should… I know that one day, I will find time to prep, sand, prime and paint it. I have the tools and know how. It has been Googled the white in color tends to do this… The bedrail damage? I’ll see if the paintless dent repair kit I have on the shelf can fix that later this summer.
I am not complaining at all! I have the last year pre Def Duramax out there!
I had the worst fishing trip ever yesterday. As soon as the boat was in the water, the motor would not idle unless I manually turned up the throttle. Also one of the boat trailer tires blew on the way home and the Duramax driveshaft carrier bearing went out too. :-( Shit happens in 3’s
Anyhow, today I replaced the carrier bearing. O’Rileys #6064. I used a 10” reach puller to get the bearing off. Darn thing was expensive. $298!
The total time would have been about 1 hour if I had the puller and the correct bearing to begin with. So hopefully if any LBZ owner has a bad drive shaft carrier bearing go out, these part numbers should be what you need.
