  1. Underside of cab is a primed and painted black with Rustoleum rattle can paint. It boiled down to two big cans of Primer and one can of black paint. i also tried to paint the firewall with some farm and home rattle can blue paint. Doesn’t look horrible but went through two cans pretty quick. decided to paint the floor with black paint and the dash with the blue paint. going to put this on hold for now since I spent about $50 on paint but at least the floor is done so I can put the body back down and bolt it to frame.
  2. Eastwood heat and sound barrier went on like crap. Letting it dry overnight and we’ll see where we are at with it. I have a feeling we’ll be painting over it. my son Zack pulled the steering column, emergency brake, brake pedal, gas pedal, master cylinder and seat out of the 63 donor parts cab. goal today is get firewall and inside cab dash area painted so we can install the parts that Zack just took off, except seat
  3. So it’s been awhile but my wife got leukemia and been focusing on helping her get better. I have been selling all my toys since she’s without a job and we need money. We aren’t the people that live with a savings and are more that paycheck to paycheck family. Thought I was going to be selling the 64 as it sits but I’m at the point of trying to put it together very slowly. Here is a plan of attack, tons to do for no to little cost. Prime under body and rattle can paint Prime firewall and Rattle can paint Off old body (save bolts) Brake pedal Emergency brake Accelerator pedal Steering Column & bracket Seat Install on new body Brake pedal Emergency Brake Accelerator Pedal Suburban Proportional valve Master cylinder Brake lines (left rear to front, right rear to center) Redo hubs Steering Column Purchase (1) Core Support (2) inner front fenders Painless Wiring Harness
  4. I found this information pretty interesting and wanted to share with everyone else. A break down of the import/export business for vehicles is shown here The OICA counts over 50 countries which assemble, manufacture or disseminate automobiles. Of that number, only 14 countries (list below) currently possess the capability to design original production automobiles from the ground up. Australia China France Germany India Iran Italy Japan Malaysia Russia South Korea Sweden Below are the top 20 motor vehicle producing countries (as of 2018). I was very surprised to see how much more China is than everyone else. Best-selling brands produced in China According to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (C.A.A.M), automakers in China delivered 28,226,616 passenger and light commercial vehicles in 2017. Volkswagen remained the best-selling brand followed by Honda. In 2017, Geely surprised everyone by rocketing to become the third best-selling brand in China and the top Chinese brand in the market. Korean and American brands suffered from lackluster sales with Hyundai dropping from the top ten and GM and Ford both falling below local Chinese brands. Below is a breakdown of the deliveries by brand. The best selling specific model in 2017 was the Wuling Hong Guang minivan made in partnership with SAIC-GM, formerly known as Shanghai General Motors Company Ltd. In fact, five of the top-15 models were produced by SAIC-GM. Volkswagen had three models in the top-15, including the number-two Lavida while Geely, Great Wall, and Guangzhou Automotive Corp (GAC) models accounted for several models on that list. Number three of the top-15 belonged to the Nissan Bluebird Sylphy/Sylphy, number four to the Haval H6 and number five to the VW New Santana. 2017 Top 10 Brands by Passenger Car Sales[66] Rank Brand Manufacturer(s) Sales in 2017 1 Volkswagen FAW, SAIC 3,135,236 2 Honda GAC, Dongfeng 1,405,021 3 Geely Auto Geely 1,248,004 4 Buick SAIC GM 1,223,429 5 Toyota FAW, GAC 1,131,616 6 Nissan Dongfeng 1,116,709 7 Chang'an Chang'an 1,062,716 8 Baojun SAIC-GM-Wuling 1,016,224 9 Haval Great Wall 851,855 10 Ford Chang'an 840,946 FAW Group Corporation ("First Automobile Works") is a Chinese state-owned automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Changchun, Jilin, China. FAW is one of the "Big Four" Chinese automakers alongside Changan Automobile, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, and SAIC Motor. SAIC sells vehicles under a variety of brands. Brand names that are exclusive to SAIC include Maxus, MG, Roewe, and Yuejin.

  5. Changed the glow plugs in my LBZ Duramax Diesel and learned a few things. First, why did I jump into this project? Whenever it was cold out (which is often here in Michigan) the glow plug would come on and when it went away the Check Engine light would stay on. So I pulled out my spade tuner and read the code which was ECM P0672. Review what the code is its defined basically everywhere as a semi generic code but with some specifics like what cylinder to troubleshoot So which one is the #2 Not that it really matters since when you are changing them its always recommended that you replace all of them. Passenger side (1,3,5,7) easier to access than drivers side (2,4,6,8) since nothing is blocking access to the glow plugs on the passenger side. I started the drivers side and cylinder 2 was blocked by intake (easy, just remove on top and it gives you enough room to get around it) and cylinder 4 was blocked by the steering shaft. There is a bolt that holds it together, just take that out (don't let it spin on ya or your steering wheel won't be lined up). I purchased AC-Delco Glow Plugs (8 of them was $162). Now what I was disappointed on was I saw all the YouTube videos showing how bad Beru Glow Plugs are and said to myself, I'm not buying that crap, I'll stick with factory AC Delco and come to find out that AC Delco glow plugs are Beru made in Germany. Dang it! Went to the passenger side and discovered all those turned out to be DieselRX glow plugs and who ever put them in did not put any anti-seeze and thats all kinds of bad. Steel Glow Plugs on Aluminum block and they did NOT want to come out. I was worried of breaking them in the block but was lucky to be able to remove them and replace them with the AC-Delco glow plugs. Of course bad luck kept coming with a broken glow plug wire on #1 so had to do some wiring (which I can't stand having something not factory but replacing a glow plug wiring hardness looked to be a pain in the butt so we'll see how well the patch does.) Cylinder 3 & 5 when those glow plugs were removed, were coated in oil but its been said thats okay/normal. Apparantly there is a pit in which the glow plug sits and oil collects down in that pit while the glow plug is in place. Once you pull out the glow plug the oil will drain into the cylinder, which is fine, you will burn the oil off once you start and drive your truck. I took a photo of what it looks like on these DieselRX glow plugs. So now no more check engine light.
  6. Now getting a Check Engine light when the glow plugs are trying to warm up the engine to start. Checking for codes it shows ECM P0672 which is a bad glow plug in cylinder #2 which is about $20 for the glow plug and looks like its a do it yourself type of job. Its like changing a skinny, tiny spark plug.
  7. Added EFI Live DSP5 and a TCM tune all from calibrated power (duramaxtune). Now just trying to get the truck to find its groove. It doesn't feel like it knows what to do. I have been keeping it in Position 1 which is the stock+ tune and I plan on keeping it here until it feels like its regained the normal shifting and driving and then I'll kick it to Position 4 which is the Eco mode to get those high miles per gallon (especially driving back and forth to Detroit for Kate's Chemo). Then Position 2 and 3 are for towing which will also come in handy. You can tow with Position 1 (stock+ tune) but position 2 and 3 just add some benefits you only really need when towing and its based on load. Position 2 is Heavy Load (over 8000 lbs of weight your towing) Position 3 is for Light Load (under 8000# towing). Position 5 is for race tuning with stock equipment but could still mess up some crap so the suggestion is not not use it often if you can hold yourself back.. we know you won't be able to.

  9. Saturday (2020.04.11) performed Trans Filter (internal and spin on external) replacement as well as 3 gallons of new fluid and the internal trans filter lock and a new deep sump pan. Miles: 104,000
  10. It arrived yesterday and discovered some surprises Fuel Filter is at 1% Only 1 key and 1 Viper keyfob Viper Keyfob doesn't lock/unlock or remote start vehicle Steering Wheel Controls don't light Fuel Gauge moves super slow (not sure if its accurate) No way to lock/unlock doors GM Delco Radio (6 disc) doesn't support MP3 CDs Steps are right up against truck. Fuel Filter No big deal, ordered some AC Delco Fuel Filters on Amazon for $30/each. Pretty easy to change Key issue When I find a dealership that is open, I'll get two new keys cut and programmed if needed Keyfobs I may purchase two factory ones or just get a remote start put in that would replace keyfobs anyways. This will hopefully fix the lock/unlock issue as well. Steering Wheel Controls Not a major issue but it appears Dorman sells these on Amazon for about $100 for all four controls. Heard the cable is super short so replacement can be challenging. Fuel Gauge Internet said to run Fuel Cleaner through system for three fill up's and see if it cleans the float/sending unit which could be sticking. If issues still exist then take the cluster out and send to Circuit Board Medics for repair (have them change bulbs to LED while they have it.. might as well also send the auto temp cluster for LEDs and anything else while the cluster is apart. Radio This is something I don't want to change but will because with a lifted truck especially, I need to see if anyone is behind me. It's more difficult to judge distance. Also I love Apple Carplay feature so I can listen to Spotify. Radio now a days is difficult to find a station anymore near me since everyone seems to be on SirusXM Steps The steps on this truck are useless. They are tucked so close to the truck its more of a rock slider than a step. My plan is to move to AMP Research Power Steps which will help my wife greatly since she can't easily get in the truck due to the chemo. This is my priority right now and the Fuel Filter.
  11. Looking at a couple of upgrades that would make it more my truck and what I want. Ceramic Coating - DONE 3/24/2020 by Ceramic Pro Clay bar service (strips all the impurities that were on your car previously) Buff wax blackout of exterior trim 5 Layers of Ceramic Pro 9H 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro Light Applied as a Top Coat 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro 9H on Rims and Plastic 1 Layer of Ceramic Pro Rain on Front Side Windows and Windshield Lifetime Warranty AMP Power Steps - Installed by Al on 4/5/2020 Tow Mirrors GM OEM Tow Mirrors (boring.. no front facing turn signal) and run about $400 each (GM Part# 15904035 right & 15904034 left). Word on the reviews is they still shake just like an after market mirror does so not sure its worth the high price tag for GM Camper Mirrors. BOOST Auto - $550 - purchased on 2020-04-07 (not received yet) (Thought is bring over mirrors and Pop & Lock tailgate to Al) Cab Lights Truck Bed Accesories RetraxONE Polycarbonate - Purchased (not received) Swing Gate Storage - Purchased (received - not installed) Bed Rug - Purchased (received - not installed) Pop & Lock power locking tailgate handle Item # PAL8110 (received - not installed)PL8110-chevy-silverado-gmc-sierra-classic.pdf Dark Tinted Windows Body Repair Right rear of bed is pushed in. Have Clarkston Auto Body see if they could fix it and put in rear window replace rear sliding window with GM OEM (use clarkston auto body), or instead GM OEM use CRL Get quote on fixing scratches, swirl marks Get quote on rust proofing before winter Remove chrome moldings from doors replace plastic bed side covers with line-x spray Interior/Electrical (Radio Knobs Speaker and Things) replace radio (or figure out how to connect phone to an aux port).. new radio means backup camera. -PRIORITY so I can get backup camera replace rearview with compass/temp. Upgrade gauges with LED lighting at Circuit Board Medics - avg $350 Misc Fix headlamp (passenger side has condensation) replace fog lights (worn out, dull, faded)

Curb Weight: 5,883 Lbs. When the LBZ was introduced to replace the LB7, the LB7’s injector issues had long been solved and the overheating issues associated with the LLY were a thing of the past. This engine’s beefier block casting, stronger connecting rods, higher pressure common-rail fuel system and updated ECM arguably made it the most powerful, drivable, reliable and tunable Duramax to date. Right out of the box, the LBZ produced 360hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. During this time frame (’06-‘07), these numbers not only outperformed the 6.0L Power Stroke’s 325hp and 570 lb-ft, but they beat out the 325hp and 610 lb-ft figures put up by the 5.9L Cummins as well. The LBZ was also the first Duramax to be coupled to the six-speed Allison 1000 automatic, which proved capable of handling more power than the five-speed version that preceded it. Diesel enthusiasts longingly remember the LBZ as the last Duramax built before the modern day emissions crunch kicked in, which spawned pollution control technology that reduced fuel economy and greatly hampered long-term engine durability. Arguably the most highly sought after Duramax ever built is the LBZ Duramax. More meat exists in the lower section (big end) of the rod than what you’ll find on LB7 The beefier I-beam style rods bring more mass to the rotating assembly Connecting rods were the strongest found in any Duramax up to that time GM cast slightly more webbing into the main bearing regions of the LBZ’s gray-iron block for added horsepower and torque Unfortunately nothing is perfect and in this case the LBZ pistons weren’t up to the task of surviving in higher horsepower applications. The cast-aluminum pistons are highly susceptible to cracking. The LBZ piston’s use of wrist pin bushings is also believed by many to be a contributing factor in OEM piston failure, along with a thinner wrist pin being utilized. When a piston lets go, you definitely know it, as it’s accompanied by a nasty miss, excessive blow-by and smoke out the exhaust.
