Re: C223 headers from Downunderyank

With all due respect, I don't think we can assume these headers don't preform better than the stock manifold. I sold the first of four sets of headers to Mac at a discount so he could install them and make sure they fit our US model pups which he did. As far as performance testing, I'd have preferr...

Re: Diesel injection pump timing has multiple crank marks

You say that you can't get to 0.02 but do not say whether mm or inches? 0.02 inches would be close to 1/2 mm and that is the correct lift to set the timing. There is no difference for any of the diesel P'ups except for Ca models, which call for the timing to be set at 13 degrees. All other models ca...

Re: Can you help identify what this harness is too?

I see clamps on the brake & clutch pedals and some chain through the firewall that suggests a speed control unit. So, maybe this connector is for the speed control. Also, I have never seen a connector like that on an Isuzu.

Re: CSD leak repair

Back to the grindstone to thin the wrench some more, and some detail cleaning around the bolts i guess? It looks like i only have 2mm clearance between the bolt and the CSD body on the front, and I dont even know if i can get the wrench that thin without ruining it. As for the back bolt, i can bare...

Re: Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

Bellski - - I think that probably all of your performance troubles are caused by the fuel leak you have found. When fuel leaks from the CSD joint at the pump housing it will disable (m/l) the timing advance. This, in turn, will result in power loss and much black smoke. I suggest fixing this first a...

Re: open diode and starting trouble

If jumping the clutch switch doesn't do it: Have someone listen to the black (starter) relay on the drivers side fender. If it clicks, then check the connector that is in a black # 12 wire running down the drivers side fender to the starter solenoid. This connector can get corroded and fail to pass...

Re: Josh's '84 P'up Canoe Carrier

Hey Josh, wonder what we did? I don't remember. Need some arrows on the hardware. Name of rack also, as it is very well suited for a P'up.

Re: Runaway

Can you get to it from the top or do you have to pull it? I'm just running diesel. Thanks Jesse Jesse - - It is possible to remove the top cover with the pump in the truck. It is a bit of a challenge so I recommend this only to the fearless and mechanically skillful. I have posted a step by step 'h...

Re: Runaway

I made it back to it today. Still goes to full throttle as soon as it fires. I might try changing the fuel filter and running some atf or sea foam threw it. Anybody got any other ideas? Thanks Jesse Sounds like a stuck fuel control spool inside the pump. This would be highly unusual but might happe...

I have used shoe goo a lot and find that it works very well for hose repair and other jobs that don't flex a lot but not so well on shoe soles (perversely), probably due to the continuous flexing.

Re: Instrument Cluster from Honda Passport?

I would personally want a cluster from a 4-cylinder vehicle. That would rule out all Passports. There's an adjuster on the tach that will move the needle, but I'm pretty certain it doesn't actually convert from 6-cylinder to 4-cylinder use. I know this from experience with my '94 Amigo.

Re: Fuel Injector Leak, and pages from 1986 shop manual

Sorry to revive an old thread, but its still the same truck similar problem. I have replaced the leaky injector as stated above and that held up fine for a few years. Now the same thing has happened again, I'm getting leaking fuel at the first injector around the 30mm nut. I cant get the injector a...

Re: LS Oil Pressure Gauge Issues

My '86 Turbo diesel came with a "new" engine swap. I was told about 50K miles on the engine and I believe it came out of a Trooper. I've put about 9000 mi. on it since I got it last summer. The engine only had a sender for the dummy light and since the LS has a separate gauge I put in a T...
