2500HeavyDuty, what needs to come off to do the drivers side. Is there a similar right up for it. I see theres two fuel lines that need to be moved and some sort of box. What do I need to know before I attempt to move them.

If a cup comes out and you loose coolant into the cylinder; you could suck the majority of it out with a shop-vac. Just take a small piece of plastic tubing or similar and duct tape it the the end of your shop-vac hose. Once the majority is out its still a good idea to turn the engine over to make certain its clean, but much less messy that way.

Default Injectors

Yea I have been smoking for a few months, and found out it was my injectors, have 4 bad ones, looked every where for injectors all very costly, and alot of remans, so when I asked my mech. he said he only used new from dealer, so I called the dealer here in Oakdale, CA. and asked if the injectors where new or reman. and was told they where reman. for 350.00 each and a 150.00 core charge, and that they are boshe remans. I got mine on ebay for 231.00 and no core, so is there anyone that you guys know that will buy the cores, if so please let me know, getting ready to change them out after thanksging, so any help would be great.

Most of the Bosh injectors out there for 350.00 or less will be re manufactured.If you are looking for injectors on a tight budget try Pensacola Diesel. They have a super kit it contains 8 reman. injectors wich are stock and 8 new glow plugs,with gaskets and o rings for 1679.00 not too bad . they will ship in 2 days. they will also give you 30 days to get the cores to them with out charging you for them up front.
