Re: Complete Filter List for 81-87 Diesel P'ups

Greetings DieselSmoke (Hans), I would like to thank you for posting, and reposting, on this thread of yours. In 2010 you refered to this post of yours as old. I find that both ironic and amusing in 2019! I guess now it's ancient, (haha) but none-the-less timely. I bought the correct part # fuel filt...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Good Super Bowl Evening, Jack, Thank you for your quick reply! With that question answered I will now head in another direction. Initially I thought perhaps being part of this site mattered to RockAuto, apparently that is not the case. And apparently neither do the administration or members. I will ...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Greetings Folks, Jack, I couldn't PM you, so I am letting you know (hopefully) this way, that I just PM'ed RocKAuto for the second time in a week or so. Is that a viable member contact? The "notice" did say sent, but that in itself my not be "proof", I really do not know. I haven...

Re: New build thread from Arrowmntdiesel 87 4x4

Mark, I took a "stroll" thru your work from 2015 to now. Actually looked the first time after we got off the phone the other day. It is very impressive. Beautiful, professional work. I have to wonder where on earth you find the time! Keep on P'up'in, you're doing great.

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Greetings Folks, Mark, Again much thanks. I will source those pins locally, as mine aren't usable in any direction, haha. The last one had to be drilled out. The machinist had said to bring the flywheel with the pins in it. I had not removed them yet as I wasn't intending to resurface the piece unti...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Good Morning Mark, Thank you very much for your informative, cogent, opinions! I am pleased you posted them. Yes, I do agree the Isuzu engineers were probably told to be conservative with their numbers to insure against liability/warranty issues, and so on. (And at that time parts availability wasn'...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

A Quick update Folks, I took the flywheel to a machine shop (automotive) to see how a resurfacing would work out. The machinist (owner) and I watched the progression of work, and several turns after the face cleared, he shut the machine down in an attempt to minimize unnecessary surface removal. He ...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Hey Red Truck, Good Afternoon, and Thank you for the input! I am familiar with the Scarff site, and yes, parts are mighty expensive, If I were to go the new OEM parts route, I would probable purchase from world OEM parts AKA world Suzuki parts, in Wickliffe, OH. They offer a general 5% discount on t...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Good Morning Joe, and Mark, Thank you both for your responses! Joe, I have tried the phone # unsuccessfully once, but I hadn't seen this post at that point. I had noticed the thinner dimension, and the "Made in China" stamping, when I first looked at the new flywheel, and at that time had ...

Re: ordered new flywheel, wrong one?

Greetings Folks, Older thread, same problem in Jan. 2019. Apparently not much has changed at RockAuto in the past 5 1/2 years. I recently ordered the Sachs NFW4004 as the 1 and only listed flywheel for the 1986 Trooper with 2.2 turbo diesel. I see it is still listed for the P'ups as well, including ...

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 ...

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...
