Monday...still At Home

Monday evening,still at home.Been on the phone with the insurance company about the shingles the wind blew off the roof yesterday.My policy is $500 deductible-I think I can fix it myself.

Truck's still in the shop-I've been whining-complaining I mean,I've been complaining to Jeff that the truck just did not pull like it should.When Cat turned it up from a 475 to a 550 it still ran the same. We wanted to get it by Ashland,Va. and put it on the dyno but just couldn't seem to be in the area at the right time.So today we took it to Carter Cat in Lynchburg so they could check the fuel pressure anyway.The pressure was fine,but one of the turbos was missing some fins,and some kind of adjusting screw under the valve covers was missing,so that might be what took out the missing fins.I new something was wrong because it started making that sound in the turbo,like when a hose is bad,and I had about 5 lbs. less boost than I used to. But the turbo trouble isn't altogether the cause of the low power because it had no power before the turbo ever started making the noise. The missing screw could have something to do with it though.I talked to Jeff on the phone and he didn't know what the screw was for,just that they said it was missing. They're gonna have to put a turbo on it,but it should be ready tomorrow sometime.

Home time at last huh' buddy. I never thought those 475/550 cat motors was worth a crap. Are they gonna replace just the one turbo or both? Have fun this week, Joe.
