blue99stroker She’s goung to be a beauty when you’re done.

The riffraff tool is as good as it gets

Whiskyb Another update, I just used the riff raff tool to do my injector cups last night. Had a hard time sending it back today as it is a very nice unit. Did the remove and install on a engine stand in about an hour. Its been a long road since I am doing the body on the truck as well at the same time. All new rockers, both inner and outer as well as cab corners and doors from the south. Sitting bare metal right noe waiting for the SPI epoxy this weekend if all goes right

blue99stroker If you payed for a higher output pump it would come back a 17*.

Anytime. Service is almost as important as parts.

Whiskyb Thanks for that, when they rebuild them if I were to send a 15 would it come back as a 17

blue99stroker Joey of terminator is very hard to get ahold of if you have an issue.
I would either get the adrenaline from dieselsite or a stage 1 pump
From Cncfab

The obs and e99 has 15* hpops. swashplate was a little different. The 17* are a higher output.

Whiskyb Starting to look around for a new HPOP. Since I am mostly stock but might play later I am thinking of the Terminator T500 sold through DP-Tuner. It in my price range as well. What are the differences between the 15* and 17* pumps? I have a 99 and a 01 that I can send for rebuilding. preferences? Any other reliable and proven builders that I should look at?

Whiskyb Well its about time for a update and a couple of questions as well. The Ford kit from riff raff has been very good so far. I have also used our forum discount and been receiving parts from Rock Auto on a weekly basis. I just received my new oil pan and next week will be receiving a new timing cover. My old one had some wear in the water pump area so I am going with a new one.

Has anyone ever used the 1" thick crank spacer to install the wear sleeve for the rear main? It seems to be a option. Also does anyone know the bolt size for that spacer as I will not have proper ones until I yank the motor out of my truck to install this one.

Whiskyb Ordered the motorcraft rebuild kit from riff raff. Amazing service so far. Received shipping confirmation in under an hour after placing it.

Whiskyb Thanks guys, and yes Jimmie I agree. Probably operated by a employee who just did not care as it was not his. Regardless. its mine now and I want my truck back on the road so I can go camping with my very patient wife

jimmy I would think the piss poor air filter housing Ford used probably allowed it to get dusted and it wore cylinder walls. Usually no lower end wear from that.

The clips breaking or dirty airfilter pulling in happens way to much to the 7.3's not owned by guys that are paying attention. Or trucks that go to less than stellar quickie lube places

RT No difference in the part number. All the extra HP was through tuning. Personally, I don't think an aftermarket grind is worth it. These things run so well with the stock cam, I'd just stay with that.
07-25-2017 02:54 PM
Whiskyb Are the camshafts the same between a 99 and 01? Usually as the years go on the manufacture puts a little more hp and torque into the new models and I was just wondering what parts are better. Are the aftermarket camshafts worth it for a daily driver?

Whiskyb That's what I wanted to hear.
