I have collector plates, but I was concerned about changes in air quality rules that might bring back statewide emission testing. I could probably fab up a vacuum operated deal that would allow EGR...

Is that a Jeep transmission? ;-). I think the rear tires are not supposed to have water inside, but likely it just accumulated there from being outside.

Having consulted with Steve about this truck for the last year or so, he has overcome issues that would have killed off many of the lesser of us. A hearty congrats to him is most appropriate.

Ravelcos are put in 7.3l Ford diesels in TX and AZ (where they are frequently stolen). I believe that the device interrupts 3 wires (in various circuits) and is impossible to hotwire. I think they...

Ford makes a special grease for F-series trucks that eliminates this stick-slip phenomenon, and it worked magic on my F350. If you run out of other options, I would try this.

Can the tabs be retrofit?

Sounds like nice oil....

In my experience, synthetics tend to leak from FJ40 gear cases, due to the seal design and age of the truck. I won't run them for that reason.
