Re: Thanks to Paul

I take it that the pump was leaking from the top cover. Yes, the gasket does look like it is deformed.

Thanks for the thanks.

Visited with Richard today

I drove up to the Big Sur area today to visit with Richard (Forum Name = Bongo) and helped him install a new pump drive shaft seal. We got that done OK and he gave me a tour of his place and fed me lunch to boot. You may have seen his post where he told us he had been burned out in the big fire they...

Re: Lazy Seat Belt retractor

Sadly, my passenger side retractor is in no better condition than the driver's side, regardless of less usage. I tried the cleaning approach, among the other u-tube reccomendations. So, to try to reduce friction, I put on my 'creative hat' and cut a 2 inch (my belt width) piece of plastic tubing to...

Re: Lazy Seat Belt retractor

I have found that if the belt material itself is not clean, the belt will not retract easily. I clean mine by pulling the belt all of the way out and then use a clamp to stop the belt from retracting. This allows access to the entire belt for cleaning. I clean by scrubbing in a dish pan with dish so...

Re: Door Scrunch Fix Revisited Sept 2020

I helped my friend Josh (SLOroads) install the anti scrunch fix on his truck a few months ago and they worked OK for a while. But, then the cam plate found a way to slide off the bearing and could not be gotten back on. Perhaps the alignment was not good enough. More likely it was because the cam pl...

Re: Won't go into gear, manual transmission

Fired up the beast for the first time in a year and it won't go into gear. Clutch pedal has normal feel. I've added some fluid to what I'm guessing is the right thing circled in red. And reading about what the next step is has me confused. Is the thing circled in blue the slave cylinder?? and the t...

Re: Cold Start Stumble

Just replaced the leaking seals on the CSD. Was hoping it would solve this problem but it didn't. When starting cold, It will fire, run for a few seconds smoke, and then die. Consistently, on the 3rd start attempt it runs perfect. Any idea why it's doing this and what could be done to fix it? Sound...

You won't get a yard of anything in that bed with all of the air suspension stuff.

I like the color though.

The leaking CSD probably is the air leak too.

Re: Glow Plug Issues

When I turn my key on my 86 the glow plug indicator light comes on and immediately goes off. I suspect I need to replace the controllers. I have checked with the local parts stores and not found any available. Any help will be appreciated. This will happen when one or more glow plugs have burned ou...

The silver box in your photo is the dropping resistor for the Low Glow function of the glow plugs.
