Re: Injection pump leak

The inlet tubing looks like it has been bent very sharply and has a crimp in it as a result. Perhaps the tubing also has a crack?

Re: Upgrade to fan motor

Halden - - Very cool idea. I have not felt the need for more fan speed control but it is a worthy project. One thing to watch for with a PWM circuit is radio frequency interference (rfi). Fast switching generally will generate rf energy. Can be controlled by slowing down the switching speed or by us...

Re: Won’t go over 50ish

It appears that you are just exercising the free play in the clutch release lever in the video. When the lever has moved to the forward stop in the video it is then ready to be moved farther forward by the clutch pedal and cable to release the clutch. This probably is not happening, either due to a ...

Re: Injector pump rebuild/reseal

Your pump could be leaking where you show. This is the head seal (an Oring). But it could also be fuel running down from several locations above the head. Need to take a very close look. Also, consider that the pump and its seals are likely 35 years old and that most of the seals will be in bad shap...

Re: Rear Differentail Pinion seal leaking

The four bolts that hold the U joint together with the pinion flange take a 12mm wrench, both sides. The big pinion flange nut is 30mm or 1 & 3/16 is very close. Six sided socket is best. I have not needed to replace the seal on any of these but have tightened the pinion nut once. Need to be car...

Re: Timing belt service pics - OEM belt

Yes, I believe it’s a rubber seal. The bearing I pulled off was black. I attempted to remove the orange rubber seal with a dental pick to be sure it wasn’t a protective film intended to be removed before installation. It was on there good and the part number is actually etched into it so I left it ...

Looking good. I am looking at your timing belt tensioner bearing and it appears to have a rubber cover on the OD. I have never seen this. Is that what I am seeing?

Thanks - -

Re: Turbo Diesel locked up

Got some bad news today from the machine shop. They magnafluxed it and discovered my head has 2 cracks in it. Where are the cracks in the head. These engines tend to crack between the valve seats, which I would not worry so much about, no coolant runs above them. Lots of these engines running aroun...

Re: Turbo Diesel LUV upgrade

Teener - - Yeah, good question. I now realize that these tables only go up to 1985. The turbo P'ups and Troopers arrived in 1986. In any case I can tell you that the assembly number for the turbo pump is 104740-1110 which should be the number that you will find on the sticker on the side of the pump...
