New injectors will not work right if there's a vacuum leak in the TB. The TB has 2 gaskets. A leak will throw off the vacuum, which directly affects the MAP sensor. I've seen them just dump gas like...

While you're at it, disconnect the battery to get that computer to reset.
As for the gas, yes, give a little pour right into the throttle body. Say, an ounce. Just a quick dribble. Doesn't take...

SOme of the sensors are functional even on a stone-cold engine at startup, specifically, the MAP sensor. Those broken lines could be throwing the MAP off. I've had them run fine, then after shut-off,...

Don't be so obsessed with which way things are pointing. You could have the rotor pointing at the tailgate ( if you'd gotten the distributor drive in wrong, for instance). As long as the number one...

Start with basic service. Fluid/filter/band adjustment. After that, if no improvement, I'd consider a sensor issue.

I just wouldn't push much past 6 grand with those longer arms. They do their best work at slightly lower speeds. Try turning too high and you're making noise, but losing power trying to sling those...

Low compression/higher boost will produce more power than high comp/low boost. The snag to higher boost is that as boost increases, more heat is generated in the mixture, which will begin to work...

Wouldn't the 2500 be a 3/4 ton? And would that be an 8-lug as opposed to a 5-lug 1500? Just thinkin' might be a wheel issue, but otherwise OK.

Adjusting the bands might help. Dunno what's happening with it. Remember, adjusting is more than just tightening.

Hope you're right, but I would suspect something like Blue Devil head gasket sealer. Do a search to see what you may have on your hands.

Ahhhh, that would be the computer. It locks out the OD until the fluid is up to an operating temperature of around 60 degrees Fahrenheit. So, after a long cold night, in very cold conditions, it may...

Fairly narrow market there. A well-used unit has a ticking clock on it. They all wear out. What model year is it used on? Probably best bet would be to toss it on eBay and let the bidding wars begin.
