Re: Turn Signal

It seems this has happened to my 91 in the past. It was in the turn signal mechanism itself. Just clean the contacts, but be careful taking it apart beacause there are springs that will try to pop out.

Re: diesel conversion wiring help please

It should be 3 wires in that harness. One is obvious because it was the largest(from what I remember). The other 2 I cranked the truck and got 12V from the alternator but 0V fro the harness. Connect it. The other I got 12V from the harness and 0V from the alternator. Connect it. (you will know if yo...

Re: Pressure washed, engine wont start

I would first check to make sure I was getting 12V to the injector pump. Second, (I am not sure how cold it is there) check to see if your glow plugs are getting volts and heating up.

Re: Trooper P/s into Luv truck

I am not sure if this helps, but I put p/s on my 91 pickup from an 84 pup. Everything was direct bolt in. The steering box and shaft. It has been a few years since I have done this, but I believe I did have to swap out the pitman arm. I was even able to put the manual steering box back on the pup.

Re: 1992 pkup gas to diesel conversion question

I used the diesel mounts and put 3/4 inch shims between them and the frame.

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

As far as I am aware.... You have to have a fuel supply, return, and a vent. I will let someone else chime in.

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

I would bypass the inline pump for now. Make sure the fuel tank is vented. Charge the battery(the glow plugs put a lot of strain on the battery). I have had weak batteries do the same in the past.

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

When it clicked.....you had voltage on the large terminal that goes to the glow bar? If so. "i" will not be used. Run 12v wire to one side of the push button. The other side of the push button will go to "s". It should only click when you used the push button and you will only ha...

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

Unhook your glow bar to test. Unhook s and i. You should be getting 12v only to the side with the battery. Put 12v on s and see if it clicks. If it does check to see if you have voltage on the big terminal that goes to the glow bar.

The relay should only click when you push the button.

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

I will tell you how I did mine. I had 1 that tied down to the alternator with a nut.(12gauge?) I had three in the harness. 1 16 gauge and 2 20 gauge. I connected the 16 gauge. I cranked the engine. Read with a volt meter from the truck harness. 1 of the 20 gauge had volts and the other did not. I re...

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

Glow system: Run 10 gauge from the battery to the large side post of the relay and 10 gauge from the other large post to the glow bar. Now you have 2 small post on that relay. Run a 20 gauge wire from the small post to the large post that comes from the battery. Run a 20 gauge wire from the other sm...

Re: Mating ranger tranny to c223

10 gauge from the battery to relay, and relay to glow bar. I suppose you can use 20 gauge for the rest.
