Apparently, glancing down at the diagram I started on one and ended up on the other, thus reversing the valve and the spring.

I have put it all back together, run the truck for about 100 miles and everything feels great.
Thanks again for all the input.


you are welcome.

good to hear it works for you now. It is always the simple stuff that will get you

Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
