In episode 91 Newbern and I flew from Georgia to Iowa to purchase a 1998 Ford F800 cab and chassis commercial truck that had been stretched from a four-door crew cab to a six-door behemoth. The truck only had 30,000 miles on the odometer and we believed the mileage figure to be accurate. We also believed the seller who said it was ready for a cross-country road trip, even though the truck had a few suspect attributes.
First off, during the test drive, the heater kept shutting off whenever I put my foot on the floor. Second, the radiator cap was leaking and lastly, the oil level dipstick had a homemade rubber strap holding it in place. None of these were good signs that the Cummins 12-valve diesel engine was completely healthy but after flying all the way to Iowa and falling in love with the six-door cab, we figured we'd take the risk and buy it anyway. After all, the dude said he had performed a "blobby test" and it passed with flying colors. lol
Anyway, the truck ran fine but about 150 miles into the trip the heater stopped blowing cold air and then the temp gauge pegged the needle at the "H" mark. I quickly pulled over and shut off the Cummins. Popping the hood revealed a radiator gushing an mixture oil and coolant from the overflow tube, a surefire sign that the combustion chambers were no longer isolated from the cooling passages of the engine. It was late at night, nobody wanted to tow the behemoth without charging us several thousand dollars to do so, and so we checked into a local motel.
This video picks up the following morning after my friend Jimmy Bullard helped us find a local tow company operator who was so generous that he not only towed the truck to his shop, but he also let us use his tools and fix it ourselves. What a guy!

The great thing about those heavy duty impacts is that they'll remove lug nuts even when you're going in the wrong direction. And don't worry I won't do what you do; you know like buy old trucks that SUCK. You should have just bought the tow truck!

Is that what you call "no oil at all in the crankcase"?
kblackav8or 2 ամիս առաջ
oil cooler / heat exchanger can sometimes cause that to happen and in a wet liner engine liner o-rings. 5.9's usually don't do this to people. Too bad you didn't sort it and keep it.

Spraying Copper Coat on the head and block gets it inside the coolant and oil passages. Only spray both sides of the gasket. Love the episode. Like watching big kids get a new big toy Tonka truck to play with on Christmas.

Every time I’ve seen someone use anything on a head gaskets it’s failed. Unless it’s a model T Ford. I’m curious how it holds up.

Just curious... any idea what the original owner used the truck for? It was obviously made to tow a trailer, and carry up to eight passengers... what kind of business would be most likely to need a truck like that?

Kidding love the show. Love the video and whats life without mishaps on am adventure. Next call industrial injection and put a sick Cummins in that thing.

That Towing company is AWSOME, that’s about all you can say. There isn’t to many places anywhere in the country that would let you use everything they have to get your truck back on the road like they did. 👍 Big thumbs up to them. I also loved the end where 40 people come pouring out of the truck. That was a good ending to a screwed up trip to pick up a project/toy

This video has SO much good stuff. F-800 , Robert's Towing, and an unbelievable store where NO Smoking means NO SMOKING! I'm 57 years old and like a gambler with a problem , If I lived within 100 miles of that Superstore I would be broke all the time. I didn't know such a thing even existed.

If that is a print-o-seal gasket, you will be doing it again. New torque to yield bolts are throwaway if you reused the Old ones you het false torque readings. Might get you home.
