IDK on what to do with the (aluminum) heads accept take them to the machine shop and have them go thru the valves and check them for cracks and flatness....its been 35 years since my motorhead days of rebuilding small block chevys!
My 25y/o son goaded me into wrenching on this ourselves: "Come on dad remember all those engines you worked on when you were my age"
I can crack jokes since I might be doing something similar soon...
The rolling joke for dodges is the transmission?
Tell you what i want to find a late 90's cummins to put in front of my k20's nv4500. Old school intercooled coal until fking california turns off the oil pumps!
No ebay deals for sure. GM certainly made the LB7 a complete bitch to do injector work on.
These are the injectors I was planning on, as they have the "shut off" point above the atomization point.
The sac00 was supposed to be great,then heard bad things about them. I went with bosch injectors. I wish I'd done sac45s and compound turbos when efi live was still a thing.but then I'd need a 20,000$ shortblock!
Do some more research on those before buying
What negatives have you heard?
That they aren't as long lived as they were supposed to be and have flow rates all over the place.
Lincoln diesel is my go to for parts and they won't carry them anymore..
Btw if you have the time its a good opportunity to port the stock elbow to the turbo and swap in a drivers side lml exhaust manifold.
I did grade c head gaskets and wish I'd saved the old ones and went with those thicknesses(each side can be different).but for how hard i push that poor motor i guess slightly lower compression is a good thing
