    Read these. Enough said. You may be in that 10% customer base that has not had problems with them. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=diesel+care#lrd=0x87d58015ec359865:0x2a635242437ee14b,1,,,

    So i should not share my experience with MY dealings with them? Please tell me why. Diesel Care has subpar reviews because they are a subpar company. If they had happy customers, their reviews would reflect that. Look up Diesel Care and Oregon Fuel Injection on google and read thru the...

    Ok so according to you, people cant post their reviews of a business and their experience with said business now? If you read the reviews, they are telling you exactly what I am. some of the reviews are saying stuff that Spencer at Diesel Care told me himself!! Talks to you all...

    yea, i get that there are shortages and whatnot. But I call BS on some of it - there are no microchips in a fuel injector pump to my knowledge. We're talking about a mechanical pump here. What i have issue with is being told one thing, then it constantly becomes a moving target. All Diesel...

    EDIT - Week later and Spencer at Diesel Care is full of shit. Swore to me a week ago my pump would on Monday. Monday came and went. Called him today and he now tells me they are waiting on a part (adjustment screw) and now no real ETA on when it'll ship since god knows when the parts will get...

    So i see the pump mount and air cleaner gasket along with the intake gasket. Anyone happen to know if i can get these by felpro or are they considered "specialty" or something?

    Also, is there a particular seal kit for installing a pump? Diesel care didn't have an entire kit in stock. Do i just need an intake manifold gasket or are there others as well? Guessing i should probably be able to get them at Napa or is there something special on the J code engines?

    OFI does have a 4544 in stock, and would cost me right under 1k with the core charge. Problem is that Diesel Care already took apart my core, and OFI states on their core return policy that it need to be intact/put together. However...... A guy named Spencer at Diesel Care has reached out to...

    yea well I shipped them my core over 3 weeks ago. They told me i was looking at a 2-3 week turnaround. they still havent even ordered parts for it. They have never ONCE called me to let me know what was going on. I ALWAYS have to call them and track them down. Maybe they treat you right...

    Well wanted to update that i DO NOT recommend Diesel Care and Performance in TN. I sent them my pump over 3 weeks ago, and no one has called me to let me know what was going on, so I had to call them every day to get status. And 3 weeks later, they still tell me they are working on the quote...

    82? 83? I thought the first year of the CUCV was 1985 technically, but was based on the 1984 design of the K5 Blazer?

    Are the stock injectors on a M1009 short body, course thread? I see they come in long body and fine thread option as well.

    Went with Diesel Care in Memphis. They're going to rebuild my newly acquired $50 ebay core 4267 pump for $340. Not bad. If that works out well, then I will send them my other 4267 for a rebuild and I'll be set for a good while. Now to injectors.... Does Eastern Surplus & Equipment sell...

    I am ready to have my injector pump rebuilt and am looking for recommendations of shops. I have a DB2 4267 in my truck, so i went the fleabay and got myself a DB2 4267 core for $50. My plan is to send the new core to get rebuilt, then i'll swap mine out and keep it as a spare to have rebuilt...

    M1009 air intake cleaner

    Ok, just returned from picking up my M416. 100 miles each way. The verdict. I absolutely feel a difference using the snorkel and feeding outside air into the intake. No, did not see a 10hp again, but i can tell you 100% the truck is quieter and I noticed a definite change in throttle...

    M1009 air intake cleaner

    Ok, just drove around today for about 10 minutes and can tell you for sure it is way quieter with the snorkel than without. I didn't get to go far or accelerate much due to traffic, but could say that i did feel a small difference overall aside from the noise factor. But again, didnt drive...

    M1009 air intake cleaner

    Yes, age makes a difference apparently to realize that cooler air is denser. In no way saying this is even close to a turbo set up, but almost the same principle applies. Cant argue with science (unless you're a democrat)...

    CUCV Bucket Seats - Some ???s

    if you really want them, i'll do 280 for the pair plus shipping. I think greyhound buses still take large-ish items. I remember I paid 80 bucks to have a rear bench seat for my 74 nova shipped from texas on a greyhound and went to the terminal to pick it up. if you want to get an estimate, my...

    CUCV Bucket Seats - Some ???s

    well if you looked at the pictures of the seats i have, both pass and driver have tears (repairable though).....Like cucvrus said, hard to find a 40 year old seat with out any. Not really sure how i feel about selling just one seat - what am i going to do with 1 driver's seat alone? Honestly I...
