I don't understand what your question is, or what the poll is about, and your picture doesn't work.

Seems that we have a 3-part, 100% failure to function.

Well if your timing mark is wrong then how do you know it's at 8 degrees? Just set it to where it runs best and leave it. Know, what is your poll supposed to be about?

For the poll: Well it really depends on a few things. If we're talking about the whole truck then i'd say duramax because of the allison transmission that comes with it. I am also a fan of the cummins trucks, but the auto trans that comes with them is not the greatest, but the 5 speed manual is great. I'm guessing you're talking about the 24v cummins, not the 12v or that new 6.7 v8 they have now. I'm voting duramax because the overall package makes for the best diesel truck.
