Here are some aftermarket parts some company sent me a few months back. Complete head gasket kit with oil cooler, aftermarket head studs, head gaskets, egr delete and all misc gaskets to complete job. With about 1000 miles on this job since installation, everything is fine with the truck! Preparation is key when doing these head gasket jobs.
Over the past couple weeks, you've followed me in the process of replacing the suspension hardware in my IFS Toyota 4Runner. I replaced all these parts with aftermarket parts when I first bought the truck. Over the course of a year and about 12,000 miles all the parts have worn out. In this video I'll compare the OEM with the aftermarket parts and voice my opinion on why one is better than the other.
Ebay item description: Vehicle Stainless Steel Round Rolled Chrome Exhaust Muffler Tip , CALIBER 7.6cm Seller: 11kuangyan
Interesting comparison of the eBay oil cooler stainless screen I got, and the OEM Ford one.
I searched around and found eBay to have the cheapest T10 Leds. I got them here - Affiliate Link https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&toolid=11800&pub=5575244884&campid=5337989730&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3Dt10%2Bled%26_sop%3D15 Recently my T10 LED license plate light has began to fail after 3 years. Naturally, the only thing to do was to purchase new ones. What better excuse is there to buy new parts for your car? I wanted to get better ones such as PIAA or Philips (eg. Philips 129666000KX2 XtremeVision). While I am sure the quality is there, the price was a huge issue. I would never pay $60 for a pair of license plate lights. So I went back to ebay and with a little over $10, I bought every configuration of the T10 LED lights they offered that were supposed to fit your license plate light holder. In relative terms, the same amount of money provides enough LED lights from ebay to fit nearly all my vehicles. To try and make this video as objective as possible and allow the camera to detect difference in brightness, I locked the camera's auto exposure and focus features. This means the camera would not automatically adjust itself to the brighter light by dimming the lens. Therefore, in the same frame, the brighter LED would be more outstanding. In this video, I think we have a clear winner here, but unfortunately it did not fit my license plate light housing and that leaves us with 4 types. ***In the final test of the four LED license plate lights that actually fit, I realize that the projector style (the one with the round lens) produces the most intense light but for me I preferred a more diffuse pattern of light for the LED. This looks more OEM and original to me and less likely to attract unwanted attention from the law enforcement. Therefore, MY FINAL SELECTION IS PURELY SUBJECTIVE." However, in terms of light intensity (aka brightness), I think we have two obvious winners here who are the brightest respectively. That would be the PIAA style and the Projector Clear Lens Style. So if brightness is absolutely the only thing you're after, you would want to get those. In conclusion, a lot of it depends on your own personal preference and I hope this video will let you sample the menu of choices available on eBay to pick the one you like the most. This video is for a 2011 Ford F150. Note that every vehicle has a different license plate light housing and that would affect the performance of each LED. Sorry for the background music being too loud in some parts of the video. Still learning how to use my Video editing software. Hope you found this video interesting and please subscribe!

Description: 1997-2003 F250 F350 7.3L CPS Sensor F7TZ-12K073-B Change My 2001 F350 7.3L stumbles sometimes when i'm going down the freeway, it's not the first time it's done this so I knew what it was. The 7.3 International CPS sensor goes bad sometimes, it either Fails or goes Intermittent. The OEM Ford 7.3L Diesel Camshaft Position Sensor (CPS) F7TZ-12K073-B should fit 1997-2003 Ford F250/350/450/550 7.3L Diesels. 1. If it fails, its very obvious, the engine just won't run and when replaced the engine runs. There are other things that cause the engine not to run, this is just one of them. Here's some other issues that may cause it. 2. If it's Intermittent the engine will have a subtle stumble or cut in and out. 3. There are three other sensors that commonly cause the engine to stumble or fail to start as well, they are the: - APPS/AGPS Accelerator/Gas Pedal Position Sensor (gas peddle assembly). - ICP Injection Control Pressure Sensor. - EBP Exhaust Back Pressure Sensor. They cost around $25.00 dollars each, except the APPS it's around $80.00. 4. The easiest way to diagnose it, if you don't have computer software, is to change it. If that's not the problem then you have a spare sensor to put behind the seat of your truck so when it goes bad you'll have one, and one of them will go out, guaranteed. Part Used in this video: - Ford CPS OEM P/N: F7TZ-12K073-B about: $27.00 off eBay. The aftermarket ones cost about: $13.00 off eBay. I recommend using the Ford Part Number. Tools Used: - 10 mm 3/8" Drive Socket. - 3" 3/8" Drive Extension. - 6" 3/8" Stubby Ratchet. - 1/2" to 3/8" Adapter, to break it loose, not shown in video. - 1/2" Drive Ratchet, to break it loose, not shown in video. - Shop Rag, to break it loose, not shown in video.
