so... You're saying you've never made a mistake?

That last paragraph makes no sense whatsoever. Leading me to believe you haven't a clue what you're talking about OR are just dumb, which circles back to you not knowing what you're talking about.

NO I did not make a mistake. Had the OHC been the problem his current problem would have arose promplty. It has been 4 days since the install. you're right, I have no clue what the hell I am doing and I am dumb. You hit the nail on the head.

sorry, I messed up the "last paragraph" trying to type while I am feeding my baby. oops.... (idiot)

I agreed with Drew because it is possible to make a mistake, like he said chances are. Chances are it could be another thing as well, but Demon said from the start, since the OHC was installed the problems occured. Its nothing against you Jason. I really feel that Charles should have trouble shot it with you PRIOR to making this thread so no one will be offended or enemies created

^^You're a good man Charlie Brown. The already cut wires with butt connectors going to the GEM sounds like a place to start. Thanks for the clarification, it sounded as if you said it started when the OHC was put in...giving us the impression that you werent happy with work that affected the electrical parts of your truck

the wires were cut and connected when it was bought i never cut them so i have no idea y they were cut and reconnected. i think that 2 days ago when taking out the system when we acidently hit the fuel shut off and were trying to fix the prob cuz my truck wouldnt start that those wires might have been touched or moved out of the way and loosened up and than 2 days later today maybe afew came loose completly or something so tonight i am going to check there first

Thanks, I think jason is a cool dude too. I think some confusion took place but you clarified that and I think we understand each other better.
