Howís that going to tell anything. Now you got a 1/8 diameter hole in the cylinder. The pistons wonít be able to compress the fuel. So diesel fuel is just going to blow out the holes. If you can get the truck running, you can look at the oil deflectors. If oil is coming out, usually the injector is good. A few members and myself mentioned the wiring harness under the valve covers and he still hasnít checked it yet. Itís not going to fix itself. You have to take a few things apart to see whatís wrong with. If he had a scanner and could do a buzz test it would tell if it itís unplugged or not.

Yup. Cotton, it isn't a big deal to take the valve cover off, and that is what you are going to have to do. You are going to cuss the one bolt in the back next to the firewall on each valve cover, but you can get it off without a problem it is just tedious. If it wasn't for that bolt it wouldn't take five minutes to pull a valve cover and then you could work on figuring out what is wrong

The best thing you can do for those older 7.3 Diesels ,the ones in good running condition, is put a Turbo Down pipe on them. The factory one is flat shaped.
Put a Banks Down pipe and it wakes those Garret turbos right up. She will Accelerate good then.
