doc - -

I have one of those bolts and have measured it at 16mm dia x 1.5mm pitch. There are some taps on ebay.

Re: No start

Jack/Andy - -

The manual is for an early 'before diesel' LUV.

Yes, I think the entire tip of the injector would be carboned up rather than just a small circle in the center. Not sure that I have ever seen this though.

Damage? Not sure about that either.

Re: Quiet, and stable, new tires, Oh My!

When I got my P'Up a couple years back I went down to the local Discount Tire store to replace the old crazed tires on the truck. They only had one tire model (14 inchers aren't readily stocked these days!) Never liked them, didn't feel stable and were noisy. Yet, didn't really know how much of the...

Re: Injector heat shield washers

Paul, Thanks for your input. Once those wavy heat shield washers are installed do they come back out easily? I replaced the copper washers and before I reinstalled the injectors I shined my flashlight inside and I could see something that looked like a washer of some sort, but I couldn't tell if it...

Re: Injector heat shield washers

Not sure which washers you are discussing. Here is a link to a post showing that there are three parts in the hole under the injector. Way down is a cup that normally is not removed. Next is a thin wavy washer and finally at the top is a copper seal washer. http://www.isuzupup.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&...

Re: Turbo air intake ideas

Hey Paul can you give more info on your air cleaner. I have been looking at Donaldson and some others but haven’t been able to find the right size and CFM flow. I was thinking 300 CFM is about enough flow (what do you think). My current setup is too loud and hard on the air filter (shaking). BC0F6C...

Re: Advice on fan thermostat

mojo - - I have an electric cooling fan and I have a controller of my own design. It is set to come on low at 198 degrees and on high at 205 degrees. The thermostat is a 190 degree unit. I also have a switch to allow me to set both turn on temps to be lowered by 4 degrees. This is to allow me to ant...

Jack - - Yeah, those LED's are funky. I have been in no hurry to chase after any of these because all of them I have seen do not impress. But, I am mostly posting here to mention that your wimpy drivers side sealed beam is probably due to low voltage at the lamp. And, this would likely be due to a w...

Re: Vacuum during brake bleeding?

If one bleeds without pumping the brake pedal, I cannot see how the vacuum booster can be affected. I have bled the brakes both by (my wife) pumping the pedal and by using a vacuum bleeder at the wheel without the engine running. No bad effects that I can see so far after thirty years of more/less r...

Re: Losing Prime

Jake - - Looks like a nice pump. I especially like the ability to disassemble it. Two questions though. Does it take the standard Pup fuel filter? And, if you can figure it out; does the fuel flow through the filter before or after the hand pump? This is important because nearly all of the OEM hand ...

Re: Transmission upgrade

Are there any automatic options for The C223T? A few of the NA diesel pups came in 3speed automatic. 4.10 rear end. I think Paul has an automatic paired with his turbo diesel, but I think he has a different gear rear end. 3.73 maybe? Which Paul? Not me. I am using a 5spd with a 0.78 5th gear, a lot...

Re: 86 Turbo Diesel - where does this vac line from air filter go?

My hunch is it's a drain like if water got inside that box or oil got in there, it would drain out before getting sucked into the engine. I'm sure a turbo expert will chime in and correct me. :oops: :roll: :wink: Yes, that is what it is. It should have a rubber bicuspid check valve in it so that no...
