Re: Diesel Kiki pump on D201 no speed control

bnemec - - I have found that it is nearly impossible to remove the top cover without backing the full load screw way out. One should measure just where the full load screw is set before backing out. If you did not measure, perhaps you just don't have the screw where it needs to be. I have no rules o...

Re: Diesel Kiki pump on D201 no speed control

Thank you Paul. When I'm positioning the throttle control lever do I want to feel start of tension on the big spring or the little compression spring on the back side of the lever inside. I'll try to expand on that question. When I remove return line banjo from cover I can see the "retaining p...

Re: Diesel Kiki pump on D201 no speed control

bnemec - - I think the fuel control spool is probably working OK as it does respond to the full load screw and the change in load. That pretty much leaves the throttle control lever being mispositioned as the problem. Here is a method of positioning the throttle lever when you have lost the original...

Re: Resurfacing Rocker Arms - - Update # 2

Hi Folks - -

After 30,000 miles we have these rocker arms off the head and have taken a look, which is pretty good. I am thinking that any loss of hardness is not much of an issue.

Re: Injection pump dial indicator

It looks like it has all of the right parts to time the VE pump. Also, claims that it will.

Re: Rebuild time

Hi, I think you should first find out what is causing that condition. Sure you can polish it and back together but you may be doing this again and again. Also what about the other rod bearings? How are they looking? Looks like you have a misalignment, oil starvation or lugging condition. I would po...

Re: Fresh Engine Rebuild - No Power

Awesome information guys!! I’ll have a look-see at all of this. I never thought about the other marks on the crank pulley. Paul, will you rebuild a pump for me? Well, yes. The shop where I sometimes work will be glad to rebuild your pump. And, I might well be the guy to do it. You can see our rebui...

Re: Fresh Engine Rebuild - No Power

Yes, I have no illustration with the pointer at TDC.

But, here is a shot that I just took showing the crankshaft pulley mounting flange and the timing mark on the seal plate. This, for use if the pulley is not mounted as it might not be when installing a belt.

Re: Fresh Engine Rebuild - No Power

GP - - All good suggestions so far, and should be checked out. The only other thing I can think of is that the crankshaft must be on top dead center when you have the cam and injection pump triangles looking at each other. If you have the front crankshaft pulley/vibration damper installed then this ...

Re: 92 Charge relay wiring for blower motor

super - - In the P'up the charge relay is used to allow the heater blower to run only when the engine is running. This done by driving the charge relay coil from the 'L' lead on the alternator. One terminal of the relay coil is grounded via a black wire and the other terminal is connected to the 'L'...

Re: Glove box lock operation

Huh? I have owned my truck for 30 years and have never tried to lock the glove box. :roll: So, I went out and tried it. Without being locked I turned the knob CW (from vertical) and the latch pin on top pulls down and allows the door to open. To lock the box, I inserted the ignition key and found th...

Re: 82 pup on propane for added mileage

Greg - - I have not done this but have considered it for some time. I did run some propane into my intake via an adjustable flow gauge one time and liked what happened. Engine got quieter and seemed to be smoother. I did not do this for long enough to evaluate power or mileage. Would still like to m...

I tried to order a GT 1548 about 6 mo ago and found that this one is discontinued :( :(

Don't know if there is another that will directly bolt in or not.
