Congrats anyway Nigel
I've seen Nigel's new truck, 's been a few years. I'm sure I posted a pic of mine, but than again it

The new injection pump and lift pump are in. Haven't gotten to drive it yet other than to get it home. When the shop disconnected the battery they wiped the memory on the transmission controller and they didn't set the TPS. I got that set back up, but now my OD over ride is acting up again. I'll work on it when I do the tire change over this weekend.

Now the speedometer is acting up. Otherwise it runs GOOD! Not so happy with the fuel mileage, 16.5 mpg from the new IP. Hopefully it will improve as it breaks in. I don't notice much difference cruising between the new pump and old one. Boost and EGT are identical. The noted differences is 1, I use a lot less throttle at cruise speed with the new pump. That causes problems with the transmission controller. Lock up keeps switching on and off. I'll have to see if I can reset the TC lock up % TPS lower or trick it some how. #2? The sun blacks out and my boost gauge goes once around the block when I mash the throttle. And that's not full throttle because it hits the linkage stop before it hits the throttle stop.

Mileage up to 18.5 on the second tank through it. Adjusted the transmission settings, that fixed the TC hunting. The speedo has settled down, but I'll be running the wires anyway to find out what's going on. I have new shocks for the front end to put on. I noticed my tires where wearing a little odd. My replacement battery isolator has arrived.

Fuel mileage still improving. Too many other projects in the way to do anymore work on it.

Putting my first gen up for sale this weekend. Just have to take off the plow brackets and wiring and company door lettering. Hope it sells fast, I've had it 17 years.
