And as usual, you have no counterpoint to the facts I present. It fascinates
me that you can make the claims you do with no supporting evidence.
Sadly, you haven't a clue. Its not a lame insult Tbone, its the truth. My
mechanical background would make you look silly, and my acedemic background
would shatter your sheltered world. If you truly think you can run circles
around me, then start posting info OTHER than what you've read in technical
Anyone that changes from gasoline to diesel knows that the work is worth it.
Ever driven one of these trucks long term? If not, its time to stifle
"Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, he is not entitled to his own
Sorry Max, but the counter point has already been made and made by many
including myself but you already knew that and once again, resort to lame
spin to boost your failing argument. The true facts are that if you really
think that all that is involved is replacing the front wiring harness and a
set of springs then you don't know WTF you are talking about.
The truth according to you which to most here, is just more of your
delusions and your posts here so far just back me up.
Funny how you accuse me of having no counter point and then post this. You
keep bragging Max but you have yet anything to show for it, in here anyways.
I find that those who brag the most tend to have the least to offer. Lets
here about your mechanical background and exactly what acedemic degree you
Most of what I post here doesn't come from technical bulletins but even if
that were true, it is still far more than you ever provide.
LOL, we are not talking about the positives of diesel over gasoline here, we
are talking the advantages of converting an existing truck over just buying
the damn thing. Now if you are talking about peope that converted a modern
gas powered truck to a diesel, then name three.
Once again Max, and as usual, you have no clue. I you insist on remaining
an asshole, even during the holiday season, have at it but I really don't
have the time to waste on you. If you have something valid to offer or say,
I would be glad to continue but otherwise, you will just be talking to
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving
this one is just too easy. if a person is going to brag about their
academic accomplishments mybe they should learn to spell the word first...
"the hiding behind the big dodge truck trouble maker..."
And, of course, if one is going to criticize another's grammar, one should
know that the phrase "another's spelling" is possessive, and therefore
requires an apostrophe. <VBG>
But you're right... few things are funnier than watching someone who has to
stoop to correcting someone's grammar or spelling, and then watch said
person fall flat on their face by making a similar error. That gets the big
old "Nelson from the Simpsons" point-and-laugh... HAH-hah!
with all the top posting, lack of snipping the posts folks are responding
to, and general poor netiquitte i am a little confused. was this directed
at me or someone else. all i have done is try to debate the topic from the
OP without letting feelings get in the way or getting personal with anyone.
if this was directed at me then tell me how any degree other than maybe
mechanical engineering would be relevant to this discussion.
i am not going to stoop down to profane insults in an attempt to prove a
level of education or the merits of any type of mechanical project. from my
experience in school the above response hovers somewhere around the 7th
grade playground level of education.
Not sure where you got your time from but alldatapro calls for a retail time
for r&r of 14.8 hrs including transfer of parts. It doesn't give the
warrenty time but you can bet your sweet ass it's less than half of that.
Edit to my last post. I didn't add on the other stuff...
Complete Assembly With Transfer Of Parts B 0.0 14.8 Notes
Includes: Transfer All Fuel And Electrical Units.
Does Not Include Transfer Of Optional Equipment.
With Skid Plate, Add B 0.0 0.5 Notes
With Auto Trans, Add B 0.0 1.4 Notes
With PS, Add B 0.0 0.4 Notes
With Manual Trans, Add B 0.0 2.4 Notes
With AC, Add B 0.0 0.6 Notes
It still don't come close to 40 hours tho. I wish I could go by your books
at work.. <BG>
Yup, I do. Laz and a few of his friends should have this up in running in a
few good week ends. If they have the know how.
A few weekends with friends, Tom.
A Cummins conversion? None. A Cummins r&r 1, A friend melted a piston. Took
us 3 days. no lift.
See Tom, you truly don't get it. For the same reason some change the intake
and cam in their trucks, why some put on a bottle, why some use a
aftermarket trans, why some change the rear gears. For the same reason I'm
hunting down a weber carb and headers for the 81 CJ I'm playing with.
Because I want to and because I can!! I guess I'll just stay dumb and happy.
Key word, unless.
.Then it will just become a waste of time and money and in many cases,
Based on your experience I'm sure.
Htf do you know what he thinks?? You don't.
>and to not just jump into it with his head
More of your experience?
Not trying to do anybody any favors Tom, just pointing out that it is doable
if one knows what they are doing.
HHmm....More than enough tools to accomplish
the task. Fllor stands, floor jacks, both metric and
SAE, my hoist is a 3000 pound forklift. Time...I have
plenty of. Found one donor for $2500...but looking
for one that is newer. I have the knowledge, the desire
and the ability to make it happen. Just trying to see if
anyone had some useable input rather than "nah....you'd
be better off yadda yadda blah blah...." TBone...please
STFU already with your negative input. It appears you
don't receive any satisfaction from doing something
someone else hasn't really done. People with little more
negative to say are annoying as heck. I'm sure you wouldn't
oblidge my request...but I'll give it a shot. TBone...would
you please stay out of this thread?
