Worked in a Diesel shop been there done that too.
Ive been working on Diesels over 40 years
So everythig is cool man!
Its all about opinions and advise,In the end what he does is up to him.
Im just tellin him what I think
And your tellin him what you think
You're absolutely right and I didn't mean to come off that harsh. Net-speak always trends to that side. Maybe I've spent too much time on GJ.com where guys who have never done anything are always the first to come running with a safety net....

That being said, I totally disagree with the "do not try this at home" mantra. If you have a brain, are thoughtful (like the OP obviously is since he said he realizes the risks) and ask others with expereince how to go about it, then you should be able to do anything. So lets give USEABLE advise on doing it and doing it safely - not "I do it, but you shouldn't". I hate that.
