  1. Those reservoirs were on intergalactic backorder last winter, we had trucks sitting on our lot in reduced power for weeks waiting for their part to show up. not GM's fault completely, the supplier who makes them couldn't make them fast enough for whatever reason. The same supplier also makes nearly identical parts for Ford, not sure what Ram uses. The hardest part of the whole job is realizing you don't have a big enough pair of channel locks to get the lock ring off. lol We do a lot of the indirect injectors also, that will set a P0420 when it quits working, then your exhaust will never get hot enough during a regen and the soot mass will build up in the DPF and into reduced power you will go. The fuel line release on the injector is sometimes a sum-bitch to get it to release.
  2. P21DD is the most common problem we see with them, it is caused from high resistance in the Heater 1 circuit that results in low amp draw that the Glow Plug Module detects and sets the code. The reductant tank reservoir is the only part that needs to be replaced to correct this. It is fairly easy to drop the reductant tank and replace the reservoir. If the truck is already in reduced power you may have to use a Tech2 to run the Heater 1 test in the GPCM to clear it out. I have only ever replaced the whole reductant tank once or twice years ago when the reservoir kits were not available yet. The GM reductant system uses 3 heaters to prevent it from freezing. Heater 2 is part of the reductant pump and Heater 3 is in the supply line that goes to the injector. Sometimes we see issues with the reductant temp sensor that will read incorrectly but that is also corrected with a new reservoir. Better you have a P21DD rather than fluid quality codes like P207F P20EE or P2BAD. The reductant tanks for 2011 and 2012 were never covered under a Recall but rather by Special Policy 14652B that covered them for 10 years or 120,000 miles. Don't quote me on this because I'm not in front of my work PC but I believe the reservoir is covered by the 5/100 diesel warranty for all others.
  3. Broaden your search and also look for an 094. It is full size reverse and you can use Weddle's side shift adapter for easy linkage hookup. It puts the linkage hookup a few inches to the right, you would need to use a Sweet u-joint in the shift linkage a few feet from the trans due to the offset but no big deal. Bummer I sold my fully built 094 with new aluminum case and Weddle 4.86 r+p for $2800 a year or so ago...easily a $5k transaxle. As Sean said the bus boxes are becoming obsolete, you may want to consider just spending more money right now and use either an E-box or a 2D.
  4. Isn't it a bit ironic how much lumber was used to move your oak tree? You now have enough firewood for the next 5 dune seasons.
  5. Holy crap he's got some talent!
  6. No G for us the moho went back to the dealer to get a bunch of things fixed before the warranty expires. Today I have to spray all of the weeds that have sprouted up everywhere, probably gonna go with the wife to the outlet center for some shopping and then tomorrow her car and my truck desperately need to be washed. I'll finish up in time to watch the new episode of Shameless tomorrow evening. We may have to load up the rail and do a day trip or two while the moho is gone. The new truck tows the flat trailer and car like no other and we can get there in about 3 hours. Maybe next weekend.
  7. I've never used F11 so no input there. I have used several of the ceramic coating products with just so-so results. To make a long story short I applied them both to freshly corrected and "raw" paint, maintained the coating with the recommended detailer spray and never ever dried the car with a towel but instead used a leaf blower to dry it. The coatings would last about 6 months and then get hazy areas that would not come off. Needless to say I had to abrasively remove the coatings and then repolish, wasn't really a big deal just time consuming. Nowadays I use Chemical Guys Jet Seal every few months and after I wash and dry with the leaf blower I spritz and wipe down the whole car with Mequires quick detailer using dedicated microfiber towels. The Jet Seal is an amazing product that, like Mequires quick detailer, can be applied to windows as well. The Jet Seal will shed water every bit as good as the ceramic coatings would. For the moho I use spray wax, it produces gloss and slipperiness just as well as anything and I can get the whole thing done in a lot less time. I've washed it 3 or 4 times since the last application and the water still beads well.
  8. Anyone going to Gordons the 4th and 5th? Our 2 buddies we have been duning with are not going but we'd still like to get out there. It's just me and the spouse with V8 rail, we just like to cruise and have a good time.
  9. Yes pump and fan need to be on relays. The starter should be on a relay also, unless you are using a heavy duty push button but even then it would be better to use a relay.
  10. A manual transaxle isn't rocket science guys. There will always be those who will opt to pay someone to fix things for them, like the OP I'm not one of them. You guys always talk about "learning" about your sand cars, the only way to learn something is to just do it.
  11. What is facebook? I keep hearing about it.
  12. Piece of cake. Being a tech you are a few steps ahead of the game already. I tell my apprentice techs that if humans have assembled it so can you haha.
