Here is a nice sequence of the Heads, valve covers, and Hughes intake all getting torqued back on.

Must be a tolerant HOA where you live. When I had my condo if I changed a sparkplug on one of my bikes I got a warning letter. Didn't stop my next stall neighbor who was a friend of the board from completely taking apart a BMW 320i in his space. Bastards!

Yesterday I finish the project. The alternator, ac compressor, and Exhaust headers were the last items to bolt back on. Admittedly, was a little nervous when i turned the key. But it started right up and idled smoothly.

Then I noticed the dreaded "NO BUSS" flashing on the odometer. I'm hesitant to drive the truck until I research/troubleshoot this further. I borrowed a scan tool, and I'll post what codes come up later today.

Can anyone offer guidance on troubleshooting this issue?

You guessed right. I'm on the board.

But that's also why I parked facing in. So people wouldn't see when antifreez spilled out from the heads as they were removed, or any of the dozen other spills.

Question no bus

I hooked the scanner up this evening. No codes were stored. I guess that shouldn't be a surprise, sine the computers memory was probably cleared during the two weeks the battery was disconnected.

I double checked the immediate ground for the ECU. I also wiggled the three connectors on it. I still have no instruments and "no bus" is displayed on my odometer.

Can anyone share some knowledge on troubleshooting this issue?

To summarize:
When the key is turned to on the odometer flashes four times then displays "no bus". The truck starts and runs well. I have not taken it out of the neighborhood, only let it idle and moved it out of the garage.
