Re: Intro

Welcome to the site, Owen. What year is your KB? What engine? It sounds like a much later model truck than the US P'up.

You either have a typo or a miscalculation. The 205/70 should be slightly shorter than the 205/75.

Re: Turbodiesel factory scoop purpose

Jack - - I had to search my memory but have decided that, yes, it does have the hood liner. We were concerned about the clearance when installing the engine and examined the clearance by inserting some thin material above the air cleaner and closing the hood over it. Found that there is about 1/4 t...

Aaron,

Welcome to the site! What part of MI are you in?

Those donor trucks make yours look pretty nice. :lol:

Re: 94 Pickup burning coolant smell no visible leaks....

Sorry Jack. Maybe I'm just having bad luck. I've blown a head gasket on a 1.9l, a 2.3l, and a 2.6l. Then again, my first car was a Gremlin. Maybe it's still following me... I'm not discounting your advice at all. But you and clam have offered quite a bit of help, considering the lack of background ...

Which engines? We don't have complete vehicle info. This might be a 2.3L 4zd1, 2.6L 4ze1, or even a GM-made V6 (not likely).

We really need the vehicle info updated.

Paul,

Does your hood have the factory insulation?

Re: 14" to 15" wheel swap 86 Pup?

Hey thanks. I think I will give it a shot and swap them out and see how it feels, I can always swap back. The Pup on 14s feels like a little old race car but the selection in 15" tires is so much better. Search online for a "tire size calculator". With that, you can see what size 15&...

Re: 14" to 15" wheel swap 86 Pup?

Mike,

Some questions really depend on tire diameter, not rim diameter. I've been running 15" Trooper (?) rims for years, but I've kept my tire diameter the same as factory. No noticeable difference in performance or economy.

Re: New Pup/LUV turbo diesel

What a great find! Hope to see pics of the new prize.

BTW, if there's THAT much difference, it's possible your '81 wasn't quite up to specs.
