    RT, I thought you might have a thought. Last Tuesday I pulled a trailer about 45 miles and deadheaded the same in order to pick it up. Back to the same "O" after 400 miles of using no oil. Now it's a little hard on cold starts and rumbles until it warms up and blue smoke on start up. I drained the fuel filter and it had a darker tint to the diesel more than before. This time it showed #3 and #8 on the contribution study, it showed good when it was running good. I'm going to pull those and run them over to a diesel shop in Brownsville, TX for them to be bench tested. Right now I just want to be running in order to take care of my customers this winter and do whatever I have to when I get back to Colorado next spring. Any iders????
