Well got the truck fired up today. Ran great for a little while then the IAC (Idle air control Valve) stuck open so I have a new one coming tuesday. Also had a fuel injector plug up on me in the #4 cylinder. I have spark and compression, but no fuel and its an intermitent miss so I have a new injector coming tuesday also. Hopefully Tuesday all the kinks will be worked out.

I'd like to thank Redneckstone for helping me get the motor in Wensday night, I'd also like to thank Toreador4x4 for some technical support and I'd like to thank my buddy's powdercoating company C&S Powdercoating who gave me a great deal on my parts. If anyone needs powdercoating done let me know. He accepts paypal, and he does do mailing, as in you mail him parts, he powdercoats and will mail back to you for a great price.

Took apart the fuel rail and cleaned all the injectors out and then installed the new IAC and now she runs like a top. Greased everything up, rotated and rebalanced tires and now she's ready to go for another 150,000 miles. All in all everything cost me about $900 including powdercoating and all.

New parts:
Fuel Dampner
Crank Sensor
Cam Synchro
Plugs and Wires
PS Pump
Master cylinder
Rebuilt heads
6 Exhaust seats
all new gaskets
Fluids: trans, motor, ps, coolant, brake fluid
