Can I help?
Setting valve lash was fun a s fuck laying on the motor to get to the back 2 cylinders buried under the cowl.
Valve covers leaking because the motor has studs and needed the webbing in the covers ground out so they would sit flat.
Real fun few hours.
Motor sounds much better and not leaking anymore.
I don't really get the Dodge motor in a Ford but he thinks its the coolest shit ever.
He's done a lot of favors for me so I feel good repaying him but lordy what a pita to get done.
Everything was so oil covered I looked black when I was done.
Happen to be a white 2wd?
Edit: as for not "getting it", the ford is about the best rolling chassis/body, and the cummins is a medium duty engine, makes a hell of a truck if done right, but too many hacks out there
