I can't help but laugh when a owner shows me all his bright and shinny Snap/On box and tools taking up 1 side of a bay and has no idea how to use any of the tools except a screw driver and a pair of pliers but he will display his tools



Say ..... I kinda resemble that remark!



Just the necessities.  Little of this and a little of that.  Gives you something to do until the wrecker shows up.

His 05 with a 8v71 the thing was in a mess for engine with 50,000 miles since a rebuild it wasn't Doyle's fault just bad workmanship on the previous engine builders part

like the grinding of the rocker arms the injector rockers would just barley catch the edge then would wear the plungers out on the injectors not even close to the center

It looked like someone thought you could adjust the valve clearance with the bridges all the valve guides and valves had to be replaced and I have no idea what they used to install the injector tubes with it was nasty what ever they used  

 Esco was the only piston liner kits I could buy with 1,2,03 sizes all the rest are std or 10 over and I needed 7 number 1's and 1 number 2 got all the parts going to start back with Monday

 BTW I sent you some mail that came here Don

I haven't used mine as an rv enough yet to comment on house stuff yet. For the bus side, I carry fluids, a 5 gal jug of water, a basic set of wrenches & sockets up to 1 1/2", a spool of 10ga wire, a 10 dollar set of electrical connectors, a 20 ton jack and a stack of 4×4's. I have AAA rv for tires. I carry one piece of radiator hose in each size and an assortment of hose clamps. I don't carry belts or hoses otherwise,  if they sre suspect I just change them. I think a spare governor for the air compressor and some dot hose and a few spare fittings would be a good idea.

Oh, and a multimeter and an electrical schematic and the shop manual for my engine, and I just picked up the special tool for rinning the overhead. Also I looked back and realized I mixed my parts and tools together,  for that I'm sorry.
