Shoo Goo

For a flexible repair that has to hold up, I have found after some experimenting with several "glues", that Shoo Goo is a very strong bonding agent. I put a fully separated Diesel Turbo intake hose back together with it, and I am amazed, beyond any expectations, how very strong, and flexib...

Really Good "Glue"

Greetings Folks, After looking around and not finding a replacement for the turbo ended intake hose for my Diesel Trooper, I decided to effect a possible repair. The hose had been repaired by others sometime in the past with black (lower temp.) silicone, with duct tape as a sort of mold and reinforc...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

UPDATE #2 This is an update as regards the second Tach. Mike, who did the electrical test work on the initial Tach, became involved with other situations, and his time wasn't available any longer. Paul, who has been graciously providing so much insight and information, took on the mystery. The Tach ...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

Greetings puttputtinpup, Thank you for your post. I am not yet that computer capable to upload those items, though I have been digesting your tutorial on how to post pictures, and I think it was a great idea to enlighten folks with that. I didn't take pictures as I went, as I didn't do the tach repa...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

UPDATE Greetings Folks, Several people have been involved in trying to get this tach issue straightened out. A second Tach was pulled and used as a tester from another diesel Trooper. This 2nd Tach was known to give readings intermittently. It was used to see if anything was coming through the wirin...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

Hey Paul,
I hope so too. I'll update as anything happens, good or bad. I will hold on to that gas tach as it will be a good spare in case of a problem with the 1988's unit.
And, you're welcome.
Chris

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

I tested the signal voltage at the tach end of the harness. The reading is .47 volts AC at idle, with a steady increase as RPM rises, just as you said Paul. Looks like I better try to get in touch with the fellow with the equipment to test the tach. Rats! It is rarely a single trip for me, so this i...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

Greetings Paul, Thank you once again for your reply and insights. I will check the signal voltage at the tach today as per your instructions, and hopefully eliminate another possible problem. At this stage I will hold off on the direct ground, but if I, scratch that, if someone get it working, I wil...

Re: Diesel Tach Not Working

Hi Paul, Thank you for your reply! I have looked at your post on the tach conversion that you mention, as I was interested in the feasibility of going that route. It is very interesting information, and shows a daunting task for myself and my electrical circuitry experience, or lack thereof. I enjoy...

Diesel Tach Not Working

Greetings Folks, Well I am finally asking advice to a problem I am stumped with. And I know I am in a good place to do that. My 1986 2.2 Turbo Diesel Trooper has a 3rd Gen. engine including add on oil tank. The upgrade was done 90k miles ago according to the previous owner who purchased from his unc...

Re: Considering a BAN on users with Yahoo!Mail

Good Morning All, After I logged on this morning this subject heading was staring me in the face so I figured I should take a look-see. I bought my first internet service and opened my first email account 7 years ago. Kind of a late bloomer considering my age. I am not particularly computer savvy. A...

Hello Richard, Thank you for the kind words and moral support! I was out of town 'til yesterday, 12/13, and am just now seeing your post. I apologize for the delay in response. I have to agree with everything you have written. And yes, I am on another "Are you kidding me?" project, as you ...

Re: "New to You"zu

Great visual that created! I can honestly say though, my wife really likes the Troopers. She pretty much likes everything about them. And she has driven a manual trans since early on, so the 5 speed is no problem. I'll look forward to the day when she comes home and tells me about an Isuzu that caug...

Re:More About Suspension Similarities

Hello Again, Had some time so I thought I would add to this. Didn't mean to be so cryptic, I didn't have time to look up info #'s during that first post and didn't know if anyone could use them, so I just put the question out in the meantime. I'll fill in some gaps now. This past summer from May to ...
