Put new u-joints in the rear. The one closest to the rear diff was completely shot after only a year.

Going in to replace valve cover gaskets and find two of these intake trumpets under the plenum completely dislocated. Hmmmm. Wonder how that could've happened?

Pretty common for those to get loose.

Interesting. Could you hear a rattle?

This page says they are not an interference fit (and come out easily if heated) but it doesn't say what's supposed to hold them in.

If yours don't push in easily, then it sounds like you just need to clean them up, put the whole assembly in the oven for a bit, and then push them in.

Thanks. No, I could not hear a rattle.
I just knew I needed to replace my valve cover gaskets because I was getting a pretty sizeable spot on my driveway after every drive. I had my oil changed recently at Take5 (they even used Rotella as per my request!) they spilled some oil on my engine and rinsed it off. Seems by now any oil would have all burned off if there was any left. Knowing my gaskets were at least seven years old, I bought a set of new valve cover gaskets off ebay for $20 + free expedited shipping. I could see once I took off my old gaskets they were hardened and my new gaskets had plenty of flexibility. Someone should try making some out of silicon!
I used copper coat to stick the gasket to the valve covers. I probably should have let it set longer though before mating the gasket to the valve cover; once I inverted the valve cover the gasket had a hard time staying on.
Anyways, I'll try and get those trumpets tapped back in place tomorrow morning and try to bolt it all back together. Too damn hot here in Dallas to be driving it anyways; not like that's stopped me before!

Finally got the plenum chamber all cleaned up and put back on. The on of the metal vacuum line pipes that's fixed into the plenum came loose after heating it all up like the velocity stacks did, I put some gasket maker on it so hopefully that will hold.

Small projects

1) Installed sliding rear window 'locks'

2) Replaced fuel gauge with VDO 301105 Vision

3) Tach VDO 333965

4) Wired MadMan EMS2 to coolant temp sender. More sensors to add later. Anyone know the recommended operating temp range for a 300Tdi?

Well after seeing the temp gauge hitting 220+ ob a steep forest road in 85F I carefully got home, raised the hood and saw the hood stand when closed rested on and then pulled apart the y- connector from the rad to the expansion tank....#designflaw? Consequently the 300tdi is covered in coolant (as is the post office car park...oops) and I had to wrestle with some longer 1/4" rubber hose to get connected...Tomorrow I shall refill her system (coolant) tonight I shall refill mine (beer)...oh and LED indicator lights now work occasionally although hazards have no problem... unfortunately electrics are my weak point!

Very nice. Is that a clip on/no screw model?

Oh, and I see you're using a millennial antitheft device, coupled with the extra inverted safety measure. Very smart! :-)

Also riveted my rear door sill plate into place. First time I haven't been able to see daylight out the rear since I've owned the truck. Works great, easy project.

Spent another hour with a grab bag of rubber/silicon stoppers, plugs, and silicon caulk sealing up various air/water gaps around the footbox.
Hey, on the riveted rear door sill plate: I'm putting mine in too and was debating between following the original installation (self-tapping screws) or riveting it in place instead. How's riveting holding up so far for you?

So far so good but obviously time will tell. I don't anticipate any problems. The two most important things I found were (1) ensure you use the right size rivets (2) it helps to have a second person hold the sill plate + seal in place and compress it down while you use the rivet gun.

I used epoxy coated pan head stainless screws I got from Fastenal to put down the rear door seal. They look great and shouldn't corrode. All of my original screws had rusted / corroded so badly that I just had to cut the heads off and grind them flush
