Re: 86 Pup Heater fan switch HELP?

The heater fan switch and the control cables are pretty much repairable. You would need to carefully remove and disassemble it to find what is ailing and take corrective action.

Re: Rear Speakers

Has anyone cut a hole and added speakers in the cab corners of a regular cab? It looks like there is enough space for maybe a 4x6 or a 4x10 in line behind the seatbelt. Yes, I have done just that. I moved the factory OEM speakers (about 5 inch jobbers) from the kick panels to behind the seat belts....

Re: Truck won't rev

...it just shoots out black smoke rather than increasing the RPMs... I think this tends to suggest something besides fuel starvation--unless a restricted fuel filter can affect timing advance, etc. Jack Fuel starvation will prevent the timing from advancing and this will lead to smoke. But, his tru...

Re: Truck won't rev

I have this strange issue happening right now. When I give my Pup more throttle, it just shoots out black smoke rather than increasing the RPMs. My mechanic says that the injector pump went out, and that the engines in those trucks die pretty quickly anyways, so he just suggests scrapping the truck...

Re: Isuzu c223T accelerating problem

I changed the turbo with another one I have, and the problem is still the same. The throttle cable moves freely and does not get stuck Was the intake plumbing coated inside with oil? If not then there was likely little need to change out the turbo to check for that. The valve cover vent flapper is ...

Re: Broken timing belt

There is a 7V voltage regulator built into the instrument cluster which possibly has gone wrong. The 7V output serves both the temperature gauge and the fuel gauge. So, I suggest that you keep track of both gauges to see if they both go too high at the same time. If so, it is probably a voltage regu...

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...
