Small problem. Actually large problem. We made a little gunk up in Ennis and clogged the IPR, (Injection pressure regulator) but wasn't sure what it was on the screen. Pulled the IPR last week, and found what looked like metal shavings in the screen. Put in another IPR right before the track, and it ran for 45 seconds and died. Pulled it out, and the screen was completely full of copper. Pulled the oil filter like every other time, and ran it over a towel. It looked like a christmas tree. Looks like it ate a bearing. I am thinking the original gunk was the Polydyn coating on the bearings. IT will not have that coating when it gets put back together. It sucks, but it is what it is. I'll get it back up as soon as I can. I just don't have a lot of time right now with Family obligations.
