    Also make sure thatyuo contact your local International Dealer and make sure that you add what is needed to the coolant system to prevent cavitation in the #8 cylinder

    I agree with Dave - once that relay is fixed make sure your glow plugs are working. If you haven't changed them in a while it only takes a little while, and then the truck will usu. fire right up.<p>----------<br>Phil Grande - Soundview Landscape Supply - http://members.aol.com/slsnursery<br>Ivy League Landscaping - http://members.aol.com/scagrider
