    Finally got the 6.2 up and running again last night. Port matched and bowl blended intake, rebuilt injection pump from Accurate Diesel, rebuilt injectors also from Accurate.

    It took a little bit of cranking to purge the air from the lines, but it was quite a bit easier than the first time I did that job.

    It finally fired up and ran a little rough and surgey for about a minute before smoothing out. Runs way better than before, still smokes a little blue when cold but that cleared up pretty quickly. It blow no smoke at all once it warms up a few minutes. Previously it would sit there and chug smoke contiuously and had a rough idle.

    It seems to have a noticable improvement as far as power goes. I find it runs out of gear really quick now when accelerating in second, moreso than before. Very smooth, no leaks and hopefully a slight improvement in fuel economy.

    No pic's.

    Oh yeah, I blew a brand new 39.5" TSL on the test drive. For the full story check the Garage. The tire had 3 miles on it and is now the perfect donor for a cool tire swing for my kids /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
