Re: Leak off line of alternator vacuum pump

CDB2ED19-F550-446D-A548-CE739C4393C7.jpeg This still applies but your alternator looks different than the ones I have seen. What type of vehicle is this 2.2 diesel in? There should be four lines in total. Air in the top two hoses. Oil in bottom two lines. The two hoses you are pointing at are for v...

Re: Glow Plug Check

After installing the new injectors I started getting white smoke at idle and thru the RPM range. So I figured I would check the timing since I have never adjusted it. I had it adjust a couple years ago but I always thought it was louder than it should be. So I bought a timing gauge on Amazon for $60...

Re: Glow Plug Check

New injectors picked up today and installed. Price for rebuild was $100 each at Seattle Injectors. That includes new tips, seals, and set pop off pressure. After removing old ones I didn’t notice any glaring issues with them. 55E64A63-2569-4C7A-AA7A-C4D2A67BCAFC.jpeg A123F461-2D24-462A-8449-051AFFBD...

Re: Glow Plug Check

Thank you Paul! I called your shop today pricing a Turbo pump rebuild. The guy that answered the phone spoke highly of you and your skill. I decided to keep my NA pump since is working fine and just set the injectors to the NA pop off pressure. I am having a local injector shop rebuild the injectors...

Re: Glow Plug Check

Are the injectors the same just different pop off pressure between turbo and non turbo? I want to take a set of turbo injectors and have them set to Non-turbo pressure. The part numbers are different on the two injectors.

Re: Glow Plug Check

Hope it didn’t cause any other damage. I will test compression eventually. I know what compression was before this issue.

Re: Fix solid axle issues and motor swap

Seems to be sealed in the front. Now there is a leak coming from the rear somewhere. I’ll have to figure that out. I hate oil leaks.

Glow Plug Check

Just a reminder....if your glow plug system starts acting up check the glow plugs as soon as you can. I think a lot of people scrap the glow plug system without fully understanding it or trouble shooting it. Trouble shooting the issue will keep a good system working properly. In the last five years ...

Re: 1984 2.2L 4WD Diesel turns over but won't start

I would not keep trying to start it until you figure out the issue. Try fuel filter first. Check plunger on top make sure is not leaking. Filters are cheap and NAPA usually has them in stock. If you can’t find any other obvious fuel related issues. I would check the belt. It’s not too hard. Remove f...

Re: 1984 2.2L 4WD Diesel turns over but won't start

-The 5 quarts is not a big deal. Lots of guys just run 5.5 quarts. -Also you should check your glow plugs if it is taking that long to start. Simple things first. -Seems to be a fuel issues since it was running just an hour earlier and it had been running reliably for 70k miles. Also since you norma...
