Okay suppose that you just had an engine built. It is at the machine shop waiting to be picked up, when you find out that you will not be driving your truck for six months to a year...would you stick it in the truck run it then set it up for storage, or wait until you returned to put it in? What is the best way to do it?

I would bolt it, make sure it ran how I wanted. Changed to oil, and button it up for storage. This way if anything is wrong with the engine, it's not a year later and the machine shop can't jerk you around. My .02

I agree. On my problem, the warranty was only good on the engine for 6 months. I didn't drive the truck for the first 4 months after having the new engine put in. I only had 2200 miles on the engine when it blew it's intake gasket. It took me showing them the 500 mile oil change receipt (from month #7) to get them to honor their warranty past the 6 months.

I agree, they can claim that the assemly lube drained out if it screws up after a 6+ month sit. Stick it in, drive it for a day or 2, change the oil and park it.

Damn I guess your goin somewhere, huh Mike??

I volenteered for TCN escort in Iraq but cuz I was over 180 days in a year they wont let me. I dont think ill be going back in March, that I also vollenteered for.

You might find yourself to busy to finish it prior, but I would try to get it done. :hump is just to hard to stay away from before being gone forever!

make sure you blow up some stuff for those of us that are "over there" but aren't in a career or location to do so. sometimes i hate being a truck driver.
