Thanks bro. Keep chipping away at it. That's all I do.Steady progress. The best compliment I can give you is your thread makes me go and work on my truck even when I don't want to. Ha.
But now I've come to a dead stop. I tried to get the motor started and it's not cooperating. I have spark and fuel but it's backfiring. When I took the motor apart, I never touched the bottom end or the timing chain so the timing can't be off. I checked the wiring on the fuel rail and that's correct. I can't figure it out. I had the coil packs reversed but switched them and it didn't help. Next thing I'm checking is rocker arm adjustment. But I doubt it's that. And I'm at the end of my mechanical knowledge.
