Re: Getting engine started after sitting 2 years

Dittos to what Jack said. Be careful when changing the oil line. The bolts that hold it on are hollow. Don't over tighten them. Jerry Lemond sends new washer seals with the new oil line. The transmission takes motor oil. Not gear oil. If it doesn't have any apparent leaks, I'd save checking it til l...

Re: Hello everyone, thanks for having me.

Welcome to the site! We have a great mechanic somewhere between Charlotte and Asheville. Bobby Russel. He's pretty good with these diesel Pups if you get to the point where DIY is too much. Alternators don't usually "break". Brushes wear out usually or the vacuum pumps leak a bit or the oi...

Re: Changing Rear End on a C223

The rear end and tires are stock. Its not so much that its screaming, but you can hear it working and it just runs out of steam at about 75-80. It seems fairly content at 70, push it over75 and its not really happy. But you got me thinking, is the rear end ratio stamped on the outside of the punkin...

Re: Changing Rear End on a C223

My son and i put a 3.42 rear end in his 82 luv. Starting out in 1st became like starting out in 2nd. The little 223 didn't have quite enough power to maintain 65 in 5th gear anymore either. I'm not sure you'll find a 2.65 anyways.

Re: 20/amp fuse blown

You could try a 20amp blade circuit breaker. They use them in our tractors on some circuits. I'd try to find the short though

Re: Glow plug cycle?

Wasn't worried about hurting it, it just doesn't want to start. The plugs won't cycle. Your question isn't relevant to Mark's question (arrowmntdiesel) but I understand what you're asking. The glow cycle will abort if one or more glow plugs are burned out, or the controller senses there's no curren...
