First oil change on my new truck went great! First 2500hd I had and never knew the bolt was so different! Especially how it removes itself when it wants changed! In reality I blew the drain bolt out the second day I drove it. All I had was a spark plug threader and one of these fine ngks. You guys think it was stripped or just not tight? Wish I could have found the bolt.

This motor is cooked slop in the block losing pressure with a start up rattle and idle pressure of 17 with a new sensor.. I have one turn key built on the way so this is just dandy right now plus I just sized up maybe 2 times to use this keep tapping I'll need a scooner boat plug soon lol. Also the tap environment is not favorable with an exhaust 2 3/4 inches away haha

Beside the low pressure knowing going in 1500 is 1500 and for a good riding 2500hd you know it's worth tossing the motor. Is what it is haha give or take a puking plug
