Cleaned out the garage

This is all that was replaced in the Cummins 5.9. That little silver fitting is the check valve that keeps the fuel from going back to the tank and losing your prime.
That one blew freely both ways. About $50 bucks at NAPA and located by the fuel water seperator on a 91 TC2000
Put the exhaust in complete with all hangars and reinstalled the driveshaft.
Progress!

Good to see you changed the damper. A lot of folks overlook that because they don't understand how it works and it's importance.

That comment sounds like the wisdom of a man in the middle of one. Is yours progressing in a happy painlessly numb sort of fashion??

Mine is in a holding pattern for the moment. Need to get a ton of "other stuff" arranged before I can move ahead with it. I do have about 95% of the gauge wiring in place though. Does that count as progress?

Indeed, the feeling of accomplishment will be very strong with this one.
