The flat bed started making a funny noisy today. Got it home its pooring oil from somewhere and making a pinging noise from the top of the motor.I think it might of dropped a Value. I will pull it apart tomorrow and post more on the problem. Push come to shove I will pull the BOX off the Isuzu NPR and install that bed on it.

I have not been in the motor yet but I think it drop a rod off one the pistons. Im going to have it towed over to my lot where I store the other trucks and have the oil pan removed and see what piston it is. Also strange the radiator didnt have any water in it. Oil stick seems to have water on it. Thats a cracked head or blown head gasket. BUT never ran hot. guess im looking at rebuilding the motor. Ive done it once on the Isuzu NPR this little motor is easy to build just the parts are costly. I remember when I rebuilt the Isuzu, hold on let me get the invoices out. Each liner kit was 213.00 that comes with piston, rod, liner. x 4 ring set was 168.00 rod bearings were 168.72 gasket set was 156.95 then there was bunch of small stuff , new hose's new fuel lines, got it all back together and the Turbo was bad, That was another 729.89.00 so this rebuild I know will be costly. I might just sell the truck on ebay as is. Get my money what I payed for it. I dont know still got to think about it see what my best option is.

Do you need any machine work done on the engine when you rebuild it?

How is it working on a cab over truck like that compared with a pickup? Are parts easier to get at?

Its alot easer. the whole motor is almost totally exposed so its alot easer for that matter. BUT were talking about a rebuild. Its time consuming.

Is it easy to pull the motor out if you had to or does the cab need to come off?

I can rebuild the motor with it still in the truck, If the Crank Shaft is ok. I will know that once I pull it apart. If the crank is bad then I will pull the motor , NO cab cab stay on. Will not be in the way.
