I will hopefully figure out if it is rings or valves today and get some pictures of the bottom end and post em.

Thankyou for confirming the pump info. That is great news for me

Watched a vid on the rockers. Looks like I would have to wait until later down the road, maybe on the next IP install. Given the power the donor truck seemed to have it was plenty enough for me, power wise it would be great to see if I could get a chip tuned to what the donor was tuned to stock.

You should contact Kennedy Diesel or Quadstar Tuning for any EPROM tuning needs.
