I did not try the truck last night, I figured I would just give it the night. Tried this morning and nothing. I am going to have to get Brian to scan it.

Ryan, my experience with the 7.3 ford is limited but I have worked on alot of the International 444E which is basically the same engine. Besides checking the ECM and other engine related fuses, the most common failure on these engines is the cam sensor, I changed a few of these out on the road! As far as spraying anything in the intake too start it, ether is a nono, if it hits the hot glow plugs it will explode in the intake. I was told that a diesel will fire on silicone spray and not do any damage. If you can get the factory scanner there should be a test that clicks each injector in the firing order, they should all click equally as loud, if one clicks quietly or not at all the injector is faulty. Hope this helps.     Bill.

I took your advice to try silicone spray, and I could tell it deffinetly wanted to start! It was firing on it, but would not start. I am hoping it is just because I is cold. I have it plugged in and will try it tomorrow morning after it heats up. I have my fingers crossed!

I talked to Brian yesterday and he said he would do his best to borrow it for today. I have not seen him today, so I don't think he got it. Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe never knowing Brian. Hopefully I will not need it.

Some of the outlets in the garage, share a breaker with some of the outlets in my room, since they share a wall. Between the block heater that was plugged into the garage, and the lizard tank heaters, lights, and the heater I have in my room it tripped the breaker; acceding to the timer for the lights on my lizard tanks it tripped at 2 am. This means that this morning when I tried to start the truck, the block was not heated at all. I plugged it back in a little over an hour ago, I will try again later. Stupid diesels and their block heaters.

It Lives! After 2 1/2 years it moved under its own power again! Silicone spray, and a few hours on the heater did it good! I also drove it a few houses down, just to make sure it still shifted properly and such. Everything checked out good!

Now I know what Dr. Frankenstein felt like when his monster came to life!

Thanks for all the help guys!

Way To Go Ryan, I am also VERY PROUD of you !! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

 

I would run it for about 500 miles and change the oil, I know its not cheap but there will be varnish and crude that will break loose and into the oil after it cycles a few times after sitting that long. After that every 5,000 miles like clock work and she'll last you a very long time. :thumbs:

Good for you!!  You should get a lot of miles out of that truck.  Sounds like it is time to add a new circuit to the panel though.....

Daniel, I have, and the apology was accepted. I also offered to stay inside where it is warm, but she is happy outside.

Brian, I will make sure that the oil is kept up on, and I will change it in a few hundred miles. It is not like I am driving all over, I will not be putting a lot of miles on this thing right away and oil changes should last me a long time.

Peter, why does it need another circuit? The only circuit I am putting on it will be one to open and close the air selionoid... To operate the train horn...

Oh! Add a circut to the breaker box! I thought peter meant the truck! Lol. There is a sub panel in the garage, I have enough breakers in there to run another service if I wanted, I rarely ever trip a breaker.
