hehe, actually Billings is the largest city in Montana, which is not really saying much, but they do have hotels.

I don't like hotels, or campgrounds, I like nature. I like Custer Nat Park.

There are no hotels in the park :0

New turbo, new intercooler, fixed fuel leak.

Will it run, and not leak?

Much?

Can I get another 20,000 miles out of it?

Tune in tomorrow.

Really sorry to hear of your continued trouble. Too bad you can't stay in one place for a while and have a shop make things right for you.

I hate to mention this after you've spent so much blood, sweat, tears and money... A reman 5.9l short block can be had for as little $3500 for the 12-vavle and $4000 for the 24-vavle. Of course, there's the labor on top. What does a solid used block go for?

Just b;ood and tears really, but this is what I am hoping for - any options.

I LOVE MY BUS - it is really hard for me to think of leaving her, and my adventures behind.

I have been quoted $10k for the engine, + labor, so I have not entertained it to this point.

Was that for a new engine or reman? That seems high for a reman 5.9L. Though, you have an FE, right? Extra labor... I would shop around and get a couple of other quotes. How much for a rebuild? I realize the engine still has to be pulled. We're not talking about a 12L 2-cycle here.
