I'm not sure if I selected all the right options for your truck, but you might try one of these. I found this at Rock Auto.


Redi-Sleeve; Shaft Size Min=1.934", Shaft Size Max=1.94", Width=0.563", Overall Width=0.688", Flange Outer Diameter=2.219", Installation Depth=1"
National Redi-Sleeves are precision stainless steel wear sleeves designed to produce a superior sealing surface on a worn or damaged shaft. Whether the shaft is marred by tracks or grooves, Redi-Sleeves represent a fast, easy and inexpensive repair.

Redi-Sleeves combine stainless steel construction with a 0.010-inch wall thickness. This thin but durable design allows the original seal size to be used. Redi-Sleeves are pressed onto the shaft using a removable flange. An installation tool is provided with each sleeve.

yeah! those seal kits work fairly well also, I know several guys that have used those repair sleeves, also, of course every situation is different, Ive even seen guys weld up and re-cut axles to original diam. but you take a chance of destroying the surface finish and temper on the steel doing that.

Ok thanks you very much :).
One last question, on the assembly manual it say to replace/use a new pinion shaft lock bolt. Is there anything wrong with reusing the old one using loctite?

I used Loctite on the old bolt when I replaced the axle seals. But that was before I read the thread you posted about the troubles people were having with that bolt breaking. If you got the time replacing would be better, but if not, then I would not be too concerned about using the old bolt. Assuming it looks OK after a visual inspection.

One more problem.
A little while after we got the truck it started to have some kind of inconsistent knock"or i just noticed it late"(starting to think maby its normal diesel knock).
Well, an injector was leaking so i tough maby it was an injector sticking so replaced all 8 injector..
Now the knock is consistent and louder, it seem to be comming from underneath the truck around the flexplate area.
I think if it was an injector ticking that much it would smoke and would not run steady?
Video are on page 3 here:
http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/showth ... ost4648633

Do you guy think its normal diesel knock or something is wrong?.

Sounded pretty normal to me, but I'm far from knowing much about how
a diesel should sound.

What would happen if some kid poured some gasoline in your tank, what
would it sound like then ? If the tank is not full, try filling up with some
good diesel and see if the noise changes.

Well we drove the truck for about 1000 miles now, did not get worst did not get better. Today i used a mechanic stethoscope on the intake, valve cover, timing cover, driver side head and block. lower exhaust, oil pan and side of pan rail, transmission, turbo, starter, any accessory and i could not hear any knocking anywhere so i take it as normal and not to worry.

Think its just the normal diesel engine knock/rattle at idle.

So do you think you will feel comfortable taking it on a long trip now ???

The recording you did sounded normal to me, but then I'm no diesel expert.

Well we did 3 trip of abour 3-4 hour drive at highway speed 70-75mph 2500 rpm already, gone outside the city twice and gone moose hunting past week-end, will be going hunting again this week-end and hopefully will get some meat to take back with me this time :).

I did drive 2 hour in the wild to go hunting i think i feel comfortable with it now.
I did order a serial(uart ttl level"for the aldl connector pin a and m") to usb module so i can scan the truck and check pump timing just for peace of mind.

Please tell me you bought the metal already shaped and then welded it in,
otherwise I'm going to have to do something serious! :oops:

No matter how you got it in there, that is one great piece of work
for someone not employed to do this work !

Great work Mathieu !

Don't do something serious,
the outer rocker panel and cab corner came already shaped, the inner rocker panel is hand made out of 20 gauge laminated.

I do think it is look pretty good, should last alot longer then what the previous owner did as repair, apparently they used metal screw and just added sheet metal over the rust, probably a part of why it rotted soo bad..

Not sure what you mean by inner rocker panel or laminated,
but it all looks great!

inner rocker panel, 1 image is worth 1000 word :D, try google image, inner rocker panel.
that will give you a better idea.
around here there is mainly 2 kind of sheet metal people are getting, there is laminated steel and galvanized steel. i use laminated steel sheet metal that is very strong and stay into shape very well(usually of thickess of 16 and 20 gauge), it is also slighly parkerized, so it dont rust on storage or if your not priming/painting any soon.

Googled the inner rocker panel, yes a picture was the best way to understand.

Never heard of the laminated steel before, is there a material ID number that you like to use?

Thanks ..... learned something today!
