Guess who's back back again

Well I haven't been here in probably over a year mostly due to moving from Orange county California to Kansas City Missouri I have three kids now. The 6-5 suburban was a glorious nasty beast she pull 14000 lb in a 24-foot long 28 overall length box trailer. From la Mirada California to Blue Springs Missouri. We had an overheating issue in the El cajon pass caused by a****** drivers not the engine. That pass is incredibly steep and hard pull with half the weight I had some guy cut me off going half the speed I was I went from 70 to 35 in the middle of a 7% grade and she just couldn't correct I was in the fast lane going 35 miles an hour full throttle. Pulled over let her cool down there's some more water in it continue to haul. That was 2018 now 2 years later I was driving through some bad flooded areas on highway 40 running late to work didn't have time to go back around to get to interstate 70. So I drove to the flood area water up over the wheels I went through it for about 2 to 3 miles when I finally made it to the 435 on ramp full throttle getting up to speed belt screaming like hell because of all the water at about 3500 RPM the belt went from sleeping like crazy to solid grab and snap the crankshaft pulley off the front of the crank. Have tried everything to get the bolt out I now have an easy out broke off inside my crank. .... And the crankshaft threads are trashed so I'm out at the bare minimum a Crankshaft 😭😭😭 she sits on the side of the house with pretty wheels and tires making me sooo sad..... I am reduced to the wife's 200k mile Prius with crash damage........

Welcome back, sounds like a really crappy deal. If you were closer I have a couple spare engines I could offer up that run.

Welcome back tug.

That's some bad luck. Have you tried a left-handed drill bit to help walk the extractor out?

Hey guys. Yeah I was working with a nice set of reverse bits but no luck. It never helps that they bolt couldn't break flush it broke at a horrid angle. Right now the radiator, fan, and bottom skid plate are off but still can't get at it the way it is. I'm pretty sure the broken off easy out tore up allot more than it helped. Troob where are you located? And guys what happened to the pages chatroom I can't find it anymore

The chatroom was disabled after the transition over to google cloud about a year and a half ago..
The chat format was incompatible with their services.
I'm told that the Parent Company staff are looking for a replacement solution.

Imho, driving a 6.5 pulling a 24' with 14k, floored up a mountain pass sounds like attempted murder.

My 97 c3500 with dump kit pulls cattle trailer, hauls backhoe, 4 ton loads etc regularly. But, I do not push it. If I'm hauling heavy I give it half or 3/4 pedal and if she says no.....then no means no, slow we go. There as hard on you ($) as you are on them.

I paid $2,750 (5k cheaper than a dodge or Ford of same year) six years ago, put ip in last year, and cracked frame in middle this summer, but keep fixing and babying. They aren't a I6 other brand, but with a little easing off it, might last forever.

Wonder if these long blocks any good┐See thumbnail.

Good luck.

Do whatever it takes to get it fixed, Tug. I'd rather have a sister in a whorehouse than a friend driving a Prius.

Do a forum search of US Engine and you'll find the negative reviews
