And what is a good programmer to get some more go out of it?
To keep your 2wd ZF6 you will have to run a divorced t case or swap the tail housing and main shaft.

When I put in a larger intake, 4" downpipe back, and DP tuner my 7.3 really woke up.

While you are messing around with the trans and t case I would put in a kevlar pilot bearing and possibly a new clutch and TO bearing. My TO bearing seized up and the ZF6 mated to the t case was a big, heavy, sob. The kevlar bearings are supposed to be much more reliable and the input shaft can get chewed up pretty quick when the pilot bearing fails.

Thanks, that is looking like the best bet, the divorced setup.
After the clutch line came free from the slave cylinder while driving it today I started to look over a few more things and I think a new air filter will make a huge improvement. Then an oil change just so I know its clean, any recommendations for oil and filter? I put some lucas stuff in the tank today.

After I coasted to a stop on a side street I crawled under it and saw the fluid dripping from the line and slave cyliner, the roll pin slid out but not completely, so I put the line on and put the pin back in but I was already stranded 1 mile from home and a half mile from my dads with nothing in the truck as I just bought it and all my shit is in my other truck. So he came to the rescue. Drove me to get brake fluid and my tools and kept an eye on the fluid level while I pumped the rod (haha) to bleed it and it worked. I think there is still a little air in it but it got me around for the rest of the day. Might get a new one just in case and leave it in the truck.

This all happened while I was driving back home to meet the Clawson PD to make a report on my neighbor backing into my car. The neighbor I have not met yet and what a douche. "I dont think I did but I guess its possible, I heard snow crunching but there was plenty of room, blah, blah, blah. I gave him the chance to own up to it and he would not entirely. So he was found at fault as there was minor damage on his car that lined up perfectly to mine. I told the douche to back his car up to mine and I would show him that the damage lined up perfectly. He did not want to do that.

Its been a fun 12 hour day but got a lot accomplished.



So back on topic.......I am looking for a divorced 205. Unless there is a better option than the 205.

I ran shell rotella 5w40 or 15w40, just gave a gallon of it to 14muddn today I ran the motorcraft filters. One thing I never had a problem with in my truck was oil. It was always clean at 5k miles, and still full.

Yeah this. Thanks again now I have a bunch of parts looking at me to go on the truck. I like running the synthetic 5w40 rotella it just seems to start easier. My brother runs the 15w40 without any issues. I believe the same company makes motorcraft, fram (diesel filters), and purolator oil filters so I get whatever is less expensive. Swap your fuel filter every couple oil changes as well.

I still have been meaning to pick up a spare hydraulic system for the clutch they are a cheep plastic setup no one makes a more sturdy setup. If you have to change the slave cylinder it's easier to just replace the MC as well they make a sealed setup pre-bled. Oh and the plastic clip attaching the MC to the pedal will break so get one of those too.
