hole in a piston

loosen the injectors' line nuts one at a time until one makes it stop
bend that one up and tee it into the return
pull the valve cover and yank the pushrods for that cylinder, the lifters'll be retained in their bores just fine by their anti-rotation retainers

congrats, you now have a 7 cyl IDI, it won't even be too down on power

At least it's a 6.9 so you don't gotta worry about the cylinders getting eaten through
ETA: got some beat up .020" over 7.3 pistons if you want them for the cost of a flat rate box, I'd just toss in a used piston and keep the cylinder walls thick

Spent all day shooting, and won nothing at all. Then on the way home my driver's front caliper seized. Pulled it off...pistons move freely, sliders are free...soooooo....no reason to be seized.
So I greased the sliders and put it back together and it works fine.

Probably related to having to cross a moat on the way into and out of my shop.

Some of you may remember that back in September, I found out the wife cheated on me 8 years ago with a mutual friend. Then she was planning on divorcing me and getting back with him. I confronted her, he didn't want anything to do with her, we're getting divorced.

Fast forward 3 months.

I've lost 30+ pounds, cohabitation, I accidentally found a girlfriend while trying to get some new tail.

Wife now wants me back, I'm over it. Told her I have been dating someone. Now all my wife wants to do is fuck. Same with the new girl. Wish I was 20 and not 41. I'm exhausted

I keep telling the wife no. She knows my weakness though. Where is that #metoo page?

"I don't love you anymore, and I'm seeing someone else"

"I don't care, let's fuck"


We'll see what happens tonight though. Someone woke me up @ 230 this morning. After we're done with the fun she starts looking closely at my shoulder.

"Is that a bite mark?

That's not mine"

Me "uhhh"

Dude, you need to run away from her as fast as you can. Leave everything and run!! I bet about six weeks from now she is going to give you some very unsettling results of a blood test.

What results? That she has the Herp-a-derp? The HIV? She's a vampire? She actually is Elizabeth Warren's Cherokee relative? She's got an extra chromosome?

That's what I was thinking. She is probably already pregnant with some other dude's kid, but he is a loser with no money, so...Ö.DA-DA Snowbird!!

Not worth the effort to mess with trying to fix it - by the time I got into it far enough to be messing with changing pistons out I may as well just fix it right. This is my trailer pulling rig too, so it has to be reliable - not going to half ass it. I've got a core motor I was going to rebuild down the road, so that plan just got moved up a bit. Rebuild that one and then just do a straight swap.

Thanks for the piston offer, but don't need them, got plenty of beat up ones already.

I agree there's a piston issue, but not sure what exactly yet. Rebuilt the engine ~7 years ago as a moderately built rig and was running 20 psi boost with an HX35 on it. Always figured there was a good chance of shorter engine life running about double the stock power output, but was hoping for longer/less catastrophic failure.

Best guess is I killed it with overfueling/low boost due to a pre turbo exhaust leak I've been fighting for a while. Thought I was paying enough attention to keep her safe, but I guess not.

Interesting thing is it seems to have started at idle. Haven't towed anything for a while but have driven it a couple times a month recently light and noticed some moderate increase in blowby (running a road draft tube, so it's noticeable when stopped) but nothing serious. Started it up and when it was idling to warm up I thought I heard a stutter or stumble 2 different times within 30 seconds or so, but otherwise seemed to be running fine other than more than normal blowby and it was very much worse than normal when I picked up the car and on the way back.

My guess is I've had ring/piston damage for a while and it finally let go while warming up and then driving it under load caused it to get worse. Wouldn't be surprised to find a piston split in half or something similarly crazy.

Thanks for the reminder to be happy with the measly 100hp my IDI puts out.

It might hydrolock itself on startup from time to time from the pinholes in the cylinder walls, might need ether when the starter's too hot, and it might live against the governor impeding traffic at any stoplight or hill, but at least it hasn't let me down yet.

Took my wifes car into the new shop at work with an immaculate new floor to change the engine oil. Proceeded to overflow the empty jug when pouring the dirty oil from the drainpan into it, then didn't close the vent on the drain pan either and left a trail to clean up too. I was all WTF? I usually only fuck up like that when doing auto trans filter and fluid changes.

Mid life crisis?


I'm looking at buy a JK Unlimited again, you know, since I sold a perfectly good one last spring. But I want this one to be a Rubicon. Can you imagine what these Jeeple want for a fucking beatfuck Rubicon? Fuck me running. Then I priced out a new one, and it honestly makes more sense. Other than it doesn't come in any good colours and you have to get their bullshit NAV system and Sirius to the tune of $1400 extra.

I thought the JK's were supposed to be cheap now that it isn't latest greatest anymore?


it must be a midlife crisis. I used to average buying a car (shit cheap ones and projects) every 6 months, last couple years i've spent that money on watches and guns and working on the house instead. Wife said today that she'd rather have a third running car instead of a kitchen remodel, so i started looking at old running cars like a retard

never mind that my van is probably a weekend and maybe $500 away from running....or that my suburban is a couple hours away from having a radiator that doesn't leak....or that we have fixed damn near every little possible issue on her car finally...or that my current buick is only a couple years and about $5k away from being done

nope, found decent condition pre-war buicks for 10-15K and a nice pontiac for under 10k. i just don't have that much cash sitting around in a fuck-around account, but oddly enough i could afford to make payments for 2 or 3 years. i pitty the gawd dayum banks forcing cheap consumer debt on us with their tempting interest rates and convenient terms


hard to tell if it is ADD or a mid-life crisis. the fact that i weight the cost of a play car against the projected cost of a divorce is probably more the mid-life issue
