Re: The Hillbilly Deluxe dually build

At this point, the cooling system is all better than new and all of the nagging leaks have been fixed. New power steering stuff and hydroboost etc...

So, on to the top of the engine.

-TBI rebuild
-Wiring harness repair
-Reseal valve covers

Even though the truck ran well enough, I suspected the throttle body could use some attention. I was not wrong. Made in USA rebuild kit





The victim...



I found my fast idle issue (cracked baseplate gasket)


This thing was horrible inside. Easily the worst one I have ever seen.









Notice the goop on the injector that was inside the screen area.



Much cleaning to get it all proper again...
