Blue Ridge Parkway

Wifey would like to drive the parkway this summer, probably early June. If I happen to be successful in convincing her of the joy of a “P’Upsploration” I was wondering if there might be any members near the parkway with whom we may perhaps share some P’Up lore and possibly a meal. Heading from TX to...

Re: O where, o where has my coolant gone?

Found it! Borrowed a pressure tester from Auto Zone. Feel kinda silly as it was right up front. The top radiator hose had a tiny leak at the thermostat housing. In fact it was somewhat intermittent. Must have been so slow it evaporated from engine heat and maybe closed up some when hot. With a cold ...

Re: O where, o where has my coolant gone?

I haven't noticed it getting darker. I refresh it every week or so. Sometimes something small can be a harbinger of something bigger to come but this has been pretty steady.

I guess I'll need to get a bit more desperate before spending 90 bucks on a pressure tester. :?

O where, o where has my coolant gone?

Wondering if there are any ideas on where I might be losing a small amount of coolant. Since I've gotten the truck I've replaced all by-pass hoses and other coolant supply hoses. Replaced a leaky heater core with a nice used item, buttoned down some slow leaks at the oil cooler and the rat's nest of...

His FB page looks very legit - lots of friends and a fiance. Just raised an eyebrow or two that he was trolling for my truck.

Kinda creepy?

Some dude from Haiti studying at a JC in New York found a months old pic of my truck on Facebook and responded to the old post asking if I still have it. I have no idea how someone would search FB to find something like that. Causes some pause considering what I've read here regarding flipping P'ups...

Re: Bit o' differential play

Thanks. I was planning to re-check the torque. Just didn't wanna crawl back under there this evening.

Re: Bit o' differential play

Wow - my nut was very loose. Had never been staked. I put the torque wrench on it (I've got the handle dial kind) and set it at 80 lb thinking from your experience that would be low. Just by feel it must have been 40 or less. "little pinky" tight. I hope I didn't over do it as it felt so v...

Re: Fuel Bypassing Injection Pump

Glad I saw this. Caught a faint whiff of diesel as I got home yesterday. Had just read this. Sure nuff. The return line was leaking. I'd have been all over the IP looking for the leak. The forum's a great resource!

Bit o' differential play

My pinion shaft has a bit of play and some resonance in deceleration. My question: Can a re-torquing of the flange nut take this play up or is a re-build needed. I did replace lubricant when I purchased it last summer. This truck had been meticulously maintained in its previous life and has 150,000 ...
