Got the engine out and cylinder heads off. Cylinder walls don't look to bad, gonna put a hone to it and see what it does

Been awhile since I've updated this.

Motor mounts on a 160D. These 2 against the counterweight weren't to bad, but the other 2[emoji2959][emoji2959]

Got a big job started at the beginning of February. Put together two 470G Excavators and a 950K crawler. Waiting on a 670G and an 870G to show up. Gonna need a crane to put those 2 together though!

And for those wondering what was wrong with the engine in my grey truck! Still haven't figured out why anyone would have done this

Rebuilt the cylinder heads on my 7.3, new exhaust seats, all valves, springs, and seals.

Close enough! :rofl2:
[emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787], I chased this for almost 5 years. To my knowledge this engine has never been out. But I would like to think International wouldn't have done that either

I must have missed it... what motor had that mis-aligned crank/cam shaft?
 
I flushed out every fluid in my F450 pickup. I bought it from a cousin and he had zero maintenance done on it and happened to rack up 30,000 miles in a year or so on it, it is a 2020, 7.3 Liter.

used this:
https://www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/ford-trucks-2020-f450-pickup-7.3l-7292cc
for the main engine oil and coolant. bought a wix filter as well and called it a day.

tomorrow I rip out the seats and put in custom seats for long trip comfort. Will upload pics about that soon!
 
Pulled the carb on the 68 for a refresh, first really involved work she's gotten in a while. The accelerator pump was trashed and there was quite a bit of gunk in the bowls, I'd swear most of the time involved cleaning the old paper/cork gaskets off of all the mating surfaces. [emoji849]

I have to get it moved for some parking lot work at my complex and while I don't mind pushing it, moving her under her own power would be very satisfying.
