Have you done a compression check? Engines that sit for a long time (years) can form rust on the cylinders and the rings won't seal worth a damn. A leak down test will help you tell if and where you have a leak in a low compression cylinder. Also check the cam timing. On no1 cylinder TDC intake stroke the intake valve should start to open about 20 degrees BTDC and the exhaust valve should be closed about 20 degrees ATDC. This is just a quick test. If it is way off you may have a cam timing issue. Your fuel injection may also need some maintenance. Change fuel filter, pump out old fuel, flush injection lines at a bare minimum. Your part numbers look normal for this year truck. EGR stuck open? Vacuum leaks?Haddy everyone.
I'm hoping someone has some answers/information about what I should do with this "mess"
I have a 1996 F-350 4x4
It had a very tired motor in it and my brother had a rebuilt (at a Ford dealership) so I had an engine builder do all the work because I had no time. BTW, the donor engine is out of a 1990 truck.
He said he did a bunch of work to it but I can't recall details because it was about 10 years ago.
Bored .030 over, new pistons and rings, valve job, and he said he put the biggest cam he could in it.
Told me bigger cam would cause havoc with the computer. Sorry for the lack of details it's been a long time ago.
Anyway, finally went to go pick it up and was insanely disappointed!!
5 speed truck and it doesn't have enough power to spin the tires in gravel!! No joke!
Fast forward a few years, I now need the truck.
So I started driving it and about a week later it blew a head gasket between two cylinders.
Now I have it apart and confused...
D9TE-AB block, E7TE-BD heads,
F5TE-CA balancer/dam pener,
And it has a CPS.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
