    That’s a good story Timmy, those will always be good memories and one reason you like these trucks now. Thanks for the info Mike, I’m just starting to learn about these trucks.

    That’s cool Timmy. I can’t imagine riding in the jump seats now, as a kid maybe not so bad. I have more of the original paperwork with it also.

    Mistakes are the best and worst way to learn. It teaches you to not do that again but at a cost.

    Nice, so you’ve had a few diesels. I’ve read some of your posts and from searching online about them, you’re the diesel guru. I’ll probably have questions for you in the future. I just drive mine to and from work and around town. It should serve me well in that role. I don’t plan on being on the interstate much with it. What did the sd25 come out in originally?

    Looks very similar to mine. Do you still have this one?

    That’s all I have at the moment. Yep, you guessed it. Luckily the window was down far enough to get a coat hanger in there to get it unlocked.

    That’s weird, I can click on the links and see them. I’m not real good with technology, I’ll try again. I’ll try and take some pics under the hood tomorrow and post them. I think the man I got it from said that that it quit working years ago so they put the choke type setup on it. It works fine but you have to remember to get the keys out after you shut it off. Ask me how I know.

    Here are a few pics of it. The first one was right after I got it. The other ones of how it is now. Also added a few pics of some of the original paperwork on the truck.

    This truck is fairly rust free. The man that had it before me had left it out of gear and it rolled into a brick wall. He had the truck painted so it doesn’t look to bad. It has a small amount of rust in the drivers side bed and a small area in one rocker.

    I’ll have to look tomorrow but I know the arm under the injection pump is still there. I replaced the pre-filter today with the one that you sent me a link to. I think it’s off a 300d Benz. I had replaced the main filter a week or so ago. It runs like a top. I ran into a brake light issue today and I’ve not had time to address it yet. I’m going to have to replace the tail light as one of the sockets is completely rusted and another one the bulb is rusted into it. I have access to a parts truck so I’ll probably rob one off it.

    Yes, the glow plug light is on the bottom right on the dash. There isn’t a button on here.

    It has a light to the left of the steering wheel on the bottom of the dash. The lines I replaced were spewing fuel everywhere under the hood. It was so bad that it was running out from under the truck. I thought the fuel shutoff looked like someone added it. How is the best way to prime the fuel system?

    Well, no one is getting in a hurry in it. I’m getting used to just driving at my own pace. It has a cable shutoff like some tractors. Funny you mentioned the pre-filer, going to change it out tomorrow. I’ve read some of your post on the diesels and it good to know someone has knowledge about them. I might have questions about it in the future. Thanks blitz, I’ll work on getting pics up ASAP. 👍
