    Head gasket E7

    My 94 Elite E7 454 did a head gasket and started to miss in one cylinder ..... I changed out head gaskets but its still missing on one cylinder..... only things I can think of are damaged ring or bore and no or lack of compression but don't have a guage or tool to remove injector to check it out....anyone know of a way to remove injectors without special tool?

    Hi Guys, it was the suspension ride height adjustment for the air bags so once it was adjusted as per the book was all good thanks

    also you guys call a truck with a 5th wheel a tractor (we call a semi or prime mover) and you call a truck ( we call a rigid or truck with a bin carting gravel) is this right?

    Sheppard steering box

    yes has the two and both are ok, it only locks when a qtr of a way through a turn every 40 to 50 turns and usually with a load though will occasionally do it empty...pulling tri axle grain trailer

    The model is M110, this is what is cast on the outside of the case, you cannot see anywhere else really on the box as the CLR in on the inside of the rails.

    Thanks guys can only try these things, I did replace all of the UJ's and have just put on new ride height levers as suggested by J Hancock and adjusted as the others were bent...have a few more jobs on her and will let you know once I test drive her.

    Sheppard steering box

    Hi, I have a Sheppard steering box on my 94 CLR and it has just started to bind or lock, has anyone else experienced this on theirs. So when I am turning or just adjusting the steering particularly to the right it locks and I have to pull on the steering to release it. thanks

    E7 exhaust choofing

    no 3 exhaust on my E7 454 is leaking and loosing power (performance) I removed the exhaust manifold and put a straight edge to the heads and manifold and all look good.... can I use silicone or double up on the gasket to stop this leak?
