Re: 1984 Injection Pump High Pressure Plug Leaking

I'd send it to Paul and let him rebuild it if it were me

Re: New owner questions

I have a 1984 PUP rust bucket, original 4 cylinder diesel engine, starts quick, runs like a top. If it has been sitting a while, oil pressure light takes a few seconds to go out. I am the second owner. Miles are 128,000. Can someone give me any specific info on this engine ? Not trying to be rude, ...

Re: Clutch Kit

I think a clutch kit only includes clutch and pressure plate. It's been along time since I've done one. The parts store or website should tell you what's includedGet the flywheel resurfaced, and replace the pilot bearing too. And don't over tighten the bolts holding the pressure plate.

Re: Running glow plugs straight off a switch???

Read through this thread. Let's hope that part # is still good. I'm with Paul. I'd run a big relay like an old Ford starter solenoid to run the heavy juice from the battery to the glow plugs. Trigger the relay with a toggle or push button sw inside. Maybe install an indicator light on the dash to te...

Re: Running glow plugs straight off a switch???

There are 12v glow plugs that work in that engine. A thermoking dealer may have them in stock. I forget the part number

Re: 1991 2.3 with bad idle/loss of power

How much gas do you have in the tank? It could be a vacuum leak? I've heard other talking about an idle solenoid valve on the carburetor. Maybe it's giving fits. One of our members 1Badluv talked about a switch on the pedal (not sure if present on your model trk) that controls idle circuit with foot...

I experienced the same thing on a set of bargain replacement side mirrors for my 98 chevy truck. Junk.

I see now I should have read this post 1st. :roll:

Re: Manual trans rebuild? Noise.

4th gear is 1:1 ratio and power doesn't travel thru the countershaft. My guess is the countershaft bearings are shot. The gears will be misaligned and wear badly. I'm not a transmission expert..nope. You may get by with just replacing the countershaft bearings and 5th gear bearing. I'd look for a re...

Re: Glow plug won't go out.

What my son and I experienced installing new ones in his luv (or maybe my 84 automatic) was the new plug heater tip was a tad bit larger than the old ones. They were very tight going in, so we stopped. Removed the plug and took a long brass .22 cleaning brush, snapped a needle nose vice grip on the ...

Re: Glow plug won't go out.

Like Dorf said, either carbon buildup or a swollen tip from glow plug overheating is keeping it from coming out. I've had problems with buildup preventing new plugs from being installed, but never what you're experiencing. A solvent like Dorf says would help soften the carbon but getting solvent to ...
