Finally got my second exhaust manifold off for some ceramic coat, Their was a pretty good size unnecessary lip/ledge on the inside constricting the flow of the outlet port little not too much but it had to go.

Keep it flowig best as possible. Now If i can figure out how to custom make an intake box to fit a better cone air filter. I will have a complete system. I may have an idea but will see.

So the rain rolled in so i guess ill just post some pictures in the mean time, & wait it out. I was shaking like a leaf when i had to cut (6) almost 5" holes for the rear lights, time to pop them out & lay some paint, next sunshine day, I also just could not resist adding strobes lights to my corner lamps in the front.

Better be careful with those, some places they are illegal unless you're a first responder or other authorized vehicle (road construction crew on a job site, state DOT, etc).

Those don't have to be, that's why they make those orange bulbs. That way the light is still the proper color even though the lens is not.

I just mentioned the strobes because if they stop you for those, they might just start looking at everything else.

Of course the strobes could be perfectly legal where you are, in which case it wouldn't matter that much.

Which falls under "other authorized vehicles".

Past few month's my shorty has been sitting not moveing, due to oil pan leak, it took weeks to to get done cause of important life events getting in the way. Droping the transsmission, pulled the flywheel, pulled radiator, alternator, A/C compressor, turbo & very carefully jacked up motor around three inches just to get oil pan out, (NOT FUN.!!). The $80 doller blue gasket i purchased, i have in previous photo had to get tossed in the trash cause my dad didnt want to follow the directions & loaded it up with gasket maker( not suppose to) O'well.
Anyway's weeks later i get it in with sealant ford uses from the factory. But jacking up the motor destroyed my power steering pressure hose, another week setback. Finally got it stared after several month's to see a fuel trail all the way around the block. Another week to sit, YAY.!!!
What happen was i replaced the stock fuel filter & cap with aftermarket & it is leaking around the gasket seal. so sometimes aftermarket is not a good thing. Just waiting in the mail for OEM one now. Part's of me want's to bang my head & the other half is enjoying it. Will all be worth it in the end, I just know it.
I am praying I make it to SkooliePalooza, it being only 2 hours away from me I hope to see all of your bright cheery faces their. ENJOY.!!!1

Having a fuel leak issue I decided to just pull the fuel bowl housing to do a complete rebuild. It took me about an hour, I was not a diesel mechanic before but I am now. when I brought the 7.3l home I dropped the fuel tank & removed the fuel filter screens, 100% recommended it was a complete night & day difference in throttle response.(seriously). So now that I am rebuilding my fuel bowl housing I am removing another flow restrictor inside the black tube, the spring, small rod, cap everything goes, all it's job is to insure I don't run the motor without a fuel filter but common now, it's unneeded, than you put black tube back in housing. Hopefully I see another big improvement. Another thing I am going to do is replace the fuel lines with A&N fittings & steel braided hose so I don't have to worry about the sleeves in the fuel lines ever going out again.

Getting Army/Navy fitted, *(4) NPT~AN -4 to 1/8. *(4) -4 90 degree bend fittings, & some Gasoila. complete O-ring, new drain valve & a firmer spring in the fuel pressure regulator to increase fuel pressure little bit, i ordered -6 steel braid hose but it is too big, now just waiting on my -4 steel braid hose/ & the last three of my male on male shenanigans fittins in the mail, Than we can get this freak show back on the road were it belongs.

G.C- i am about $75 into it on the fittings & hoses so far, if i didnt order wrong hose first time would have been little cheaper tho. So yes definetly priceeee. But the infamous van is hard to work on so i dont ever want to change fuel sleeves again. Next will be fuel supply line from pump to bowl than ill be done with the fuel line project.
