Alright. So the truck has been set up with equipment and I went out and used it a day. She started blowing white smoke, running like crap, so I limped it back to my shop. Knowing the head gasket was leaking at the front, that was the first order of business.

I found it fairly straightforward and easy to remove the head with a cherry picker.

And the gasket was blown where expected. However nowhere was it blown in a way that could cause white smoke and the running issues.
New gasket anyways

And after everything was buckled up, it ran the same

Using the google machine, it seems I may have slipped timing or have a bad ofv. Tomorrow is anudder day!
