Cool, tell us when the toys arrive. I have tips for assembly of everything that make the engine seal up real nice.

Well update. Being smart again thought I would get ahead of the game and get another cheap vehicle for work and while the truck is down. Found a van for 500 bucks and all was well. So parked the truck. And got ready for my first ram van experience. 5 minutes later and a tick started then turned into a bad knock. Oh Boy. Tomorrow valve covers on the van are coming off. Hope it's simple. Oh she's a 5.9 too runs really strong when it wants to.

I think by the time we shipped it up here I may be better off pulling one from the local junk yard. And if it is what I think it's just a lifter. But thanks maybe I will need it one day lol.

It may be expensive, but keeping her will be much more expensive in the long run.
