Re: Rebuild time

The number 4 rod bearing spun, I don’t have enough money for a rebuild, the crankshaft doesn’t look too bad so I’ll just polish it, polish the rod and the rod cap and throw new bearings at it, if I can get 20-30k out of the engine, I’ll be happy.

Re: Information about MSG4 4wd gearbox

I think it would be easier just to turn the max throttle bolt, it’s at the rear of the injection pump, it limits how much throttle can be given.

Re: Rebuild time

It was highway driving, I still don’t know what happened, I took really good care of it after the rebuild, did oil changes in time, never over revved, used quality oil and never overheated, maybe the mechanic left something wrong inside of it, I’ll get it towed home on Saturday and I will tear the e...

Re: Installing an alternator bracket on trucks with no ac

Here I am! It came out of a 88 22R, I think you could modify it to fit the power steering pump, the bracket itself is really sturdy, I don’t have my truck with me right now but I will send you more pics.

Re: Strange turbo problems

Thanks everyone for your responses!! It did have more wear closer to the exhaust side and the turbine was making contact with the housing, previous owner turned the fuel up to the point of black smoke, when I got I readjusted it, but damage was done to the turbine so it’s not good for a rebuild, so ...

Strange turbo problems

The turbo on the trooper started to act weird... I was driving her after replacing the head and suddenly I could hear like the turbo was making contact with one of the housings, drove it home slowly and removed the intake, the compressor looks ok, it has no play, and it sounds like it’s the turbine ...

Re: Runaway

Did you start if back up? If so, did it went straight to an idle? It might be a problem with the governor not backing up at higher rpms. Isn’t the throttle cable sticking?

Re: Losing Prime

I say filter primer, I had to replace mine a couple of days ago, the check valves were actually good, but it leaked from the primer itself, got an used one for $20 here in my country so I’m pretty sure you can get one for less. I had to modify the bracket a little because the mounting holes were poi...

Thanks everyone

After almost 3 years of joining the forum, my truck has changed a lot, most of it thanks to the help of a lot of folks in here and from the zoo, although folks in here seem to spend more time replying even ridiculous things I’ve asked. Things as going from 2wd to 4wd, the turbo, wouldn’t been possib...

Gear ratio code

Hello everyone, I found a passport in a junkyard, and I’ve read there’s a three digit code on the firewall that will give you the gear ratio, I found this but I can’t find the code. Where is it supposed to be?

Hello again

Hello everyone, I'm definitely not a new member, I've learned a lot of stuff about the c223 in this forum, and now I'll have to learn stuff about the 4jg2, although I feel like it shares a lot of stuff with the c223. My dad just got a 2001 trooper with a 4jg2 swap, it needs some work but I nothing t...
