I bought a truck.
A diesel that smokes like a... uh... It smokes a lot.
I think I figured out why but I'm stuck at work and can't work on it and it's driving me crazy.
the funny thing is that, i'm pretty sure the reason that my truck is smoking is because it is retarded, literally
What kind of truck?
'93 F250 Super Cab Long Box 7.3L IDI Diesel 5 speed manual. Its seriously like 20 feet long.
I advanced the timing a bunch and now it only smokes like a diesel is supposed to.
Niiice! I have a bit of a Ford truck fetish but it's generally localized to fifth and sixth generation.
This is my first Ford, first Diesel and first manual transmission (other than bikes)
What I get a kick out of is the '93 is the last year they ran this engine and, I think the last year for this body style.
My '07 KLR650 is the last year for that style.
They will both run the same motor oil.
So, I think it belongs in the fleet.
