Gotta question for some of y’all. When I pulled the injectors there was a lot of oil in and covering them. That’s the first time I’ve ever done that and was wondering if that’s normal? Also I fixed a small piece of tubing to my shop vac and was told to suck up the oil off the top of the pistons. Well there is quiet a bit oil ther or I’m sucking oil out of the pan. Am I actually pulling oil out of the engine by doing this?

Normal.

I believe I’ve read this in your thread already about oil on top of piston. You have differing opinions. Pick one and go with it.

I rotated motor over to tdc and used a might vac with a small tube pushed down through injector cup. The back 2 cylinders had the most oil. The rest where not to bad.

Yep that’s what I did. Also I got wired the fuel pump and pumped all the fuel out of tank and flushed 5 gals of clean fuel through it.

My injectors came in yesterday and last night I got them installed. Bolted down and oil deflectors bolted on. Torqued at 10ft/lbs and oil deflectors 9 ft/lbs. I vacuumed out the glow plug holes and turned the engine over 2 times to remove any fuel or oil off the pistons. My hpop should be here today and after that goes on I’ll crank over a few times to remove air. I was planning on a new icp and ipr but crossing my fingers they’ll be ok. Injectors went in as planned and all were even across the top. I’ve been doing a few other things while waiting on parts. I’m installing another the amp for the stereo and built a board for mounting everything behind the back seat. I’ll post some pics later on. Also I’m building a console for the front floorboard for room for iPad mount,switches and air compressor controls.

Well I’ve got the adrenaline hpop in and and while I’ve been at it tore out some interior and been retiring stereo,built a front console in the floorboard. All I like now is installing glow plugs and tightening everything down. Hopefully this evening I’ll get to fire it up and purge the oil lines. Don’t have my hydra chip in yet hopefully it will be here by Friday.

Ok guys, I finished installing my injectors and adrenaline hpop yesterday afternoon late. I went ahead and installed my hydra chip before trying to start my truck. I figured that since it came from GH all I would need to do is install the chip and that’s it. Do I still need to download the software and run this with a laptop through the chip? Everything seems to be ok. The wait to start light operates like normal,no service engine soon light on. Just cranks but no start. I haven’t tried anything yet I just want to eliminate the possibility that the chip is culprit due to my ignorance. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Your truck will start without the chip no problem. Just don’t try to drive with it...

With that said... you need to connect the chip to your laptop and transfer the tunes over. Then install the chip onto the pcm (batteries unplugged).

Prior to cranking - did you pour oil into the hpop? That will allow you to start the truck faster. Make sure batteries are fully charged. Crank 20sec intervals, minute rest, crank again till it starts.

If you have the extension cable, there's no reason to remove the chip for loading tunes. And it depends, if you told them about your mods (if injectors) they could have loaded tunes.
