Our son, now 20, is pretty handy and will try anything.
We bought an '05 F350 last summer in support of his asphalt repair business. It had a (hard) previous life and came with some surprises. Before Christmas, it was showing signs it had a bad injector, so he got it analysed, identified which one, ordered an after-market replacement, downloaded some how-to video and the project was on. In spite of all our big old buldings we don't have a proper place to do mechanical work, so a friend generously gave us a couple days' use of his serious, big, warm, well-lit farm shop.
Well, about twelve hours work later, the offending injector was replaced and the others all removed, cleaned and put back with new o-rings, changed transmission fluid and filters (maybe for the first time ever), changed fuel filters and after some cranking and bleeding, she came to life again!
He did this all himself and I mostly looked over his shoulder, ran for supplies, filters etc a couple of times and offered fatherly (sometimes unsolicited ) advice. No parts left over!We were impressed.
Here's a couple of pics of the valve cover off, oil bus removed and injectors exposed - about 3-4 hours of dismantling to get to this point.
Thanks for looking!
Now, back to woodworking.
