The earlier long bed 4x4s may have been mainly a West coast thing.
Anyways, we'd like to see pictures of his 82 lb4x4.

IMHO, I'd pass on the turbo. Maybe if it were a 2wd.

Re: 1982 Isuzu P'up 4x4 diesel long wheel base

Welcome to the site. I've never seen an 82 long bed 4x4 diesel. I've owned an 87 lb diesel 4x4 for a short time.

I'd love to see pictures of it!

Re: Rebuild time!

Sounds like it'll be fun! I'll be following this thread. Get your GF to help you. My wife (GF at the time) helped me a bit rebuilding my 67 Fairlane 289v8.

Re: Hazards failed, subsequent instrament panel failure

I once had an 85 pup where the harness that came through the firewall and went under the dash had fallen down against the clutch and brake mechanism. The movement of the clutch pedal had worn the insulation off one of the wires causing a dead short. It would blow the main fuse as soon as I pushed th...

Re: Rim Help

Re: 86 turbo burning oil?

My 2 cents....if that oil gets sucked into the engine while it's running, especially a whole lot, you will have a runaway engine running off engine oil. Nonway to stop it and it'll blow up.

Re: Truck will only go about 40 mph now

I have heard that on the gas engines, you set the timing using#4 cyl not #1.

If the valves are set too tight, they won't close all the way especially after warmed up and expanded. I'd double-check the gap.
