    Restoring Plastic

    I’ve done it several times. Works like a champ.

    Restoring Plastic

    Map gas torch works great to bring it back to black. Don’t spend to much time in one spot.

    How does this happen

    I haven’t had a chance to work on it any further. Work has been crazy and I was spending my free time prepping my 5th wheel to sell it and find a diesel pusher to buy. Hoping to get some time on it this weekend.

    How does this happen

    I have the same filter setup I will pull them and clean and replace. I also have a Jaz fuel cell with the stock pickup and I have heard that their foam is junk. I plan to put ATL foam and the Holley fuel may in. I will check the exhaust valve as well as pull the injectors. When I stuck a borescope into the cylinder, the one with the bad plug had a relatively clean piston top compared to the other cylinders.

    Jason, the engine is a GM crate engine, LS3 376/525 package. So what ever injectors came stock are what’s in it.

    How does this happen

    I also should mention that after just changing the plugs and firing it up for just a few seconds. The header pipe going to the cylinder where the bad plug was, is significantly hotter than the others which would lead me to believe that this cylinder is very lean.

    How does this happen

    Just installed new plugs and tried to fire it up. This thing never starts well when it is cold but was hard to get started without some throttle now. Once it started it was still missing so I shut it off. Air I think you are right and it might be an injector issue or possibly some blockage in that section of fuel rail. Is there a DIY injector test or do I have to send it out?

    John, I get what you are saying about the pump sucking from the top of a fuel cell which is what mine is doing. The pump is mounted under the cell and there is still 3 to 4 feet of fuel line before the pump. Is the solution a secondary pump? Why would this this cause a problem on just one cylinder?

    How does this happen

    Brand new car and new N/A Ls3 Gm crate engine with Mefi 4 tunes by CBM. Fuel system including cell and filters are new. Pressure is steady at 59 psi. Burned plug is on cyl #7 Engine also did not have a thermostat at the time and struggled to get over 160 deg. Tstat is now installed.

    How does this happen

    Took my car to Ocotillo last Monday for another attempt at a first shake down run. (Those who have read my other threads know it’s been one problem after another). Anyways, The car was running great when I got out there. No trans or clutch problems and everything else was working well. Made several short trips around the area close to where I parked and a couple of high speed runs up and down San Felipe wash. Hit 90+ MPH a few times and everything felt good. At the end of my last short run, as I headed back to the trailer the engine felt down on power and sounded like a cylinder was missing or not firing. After checking all the electrical connections I pulled the plugs and found a spark plug with a burned up electrode. The burned plug was not loose in the cylinder head but took little effort to break it loose. Stuck a borescope down the cylinder and didn’t find any damage. All the other plugs looked good. What could cause this in one cylinder?

    Anyone cover their trailers?

    I’ve only tried an Adco cover for my 5th wheel. Even with light beach city wind and properly secured it only lasted 1 year. I gave up and built a carport. Probably get slammed by the pro detail guys for this, but I use Zep high traffic floor polish on mine. Shines like brand new. Plenty of threads on this on several rv forums.

    Ram owners.. Air bags?

    Ive been using these for the last 10 yrs towing my LE3505 instead of airbags. Had them on two trucks now and they have been great. No bag to fill, rip or pop and they take 15 minutes to install. The link is for GMC but they have them for just about everything. Did I mention Lifetime Warranty and under $300!! https://www.sdtrucksprings.com/timbren-gmrck25d-suspension-kit-2011-2016-silverado-sierra-2500hd
