Re: Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

I finally got it! Broke my trimmed down wrench, so took off cover plate underneath and the battery and with a lot of finagling finally got it.. cutting off the broken end to make a stubby wrench gave me the room i needed. The key to the rear bolt (done from above) was using a thin metal rod to slide...

Re: Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

Looks clearly like it was leaking at both spots but much more heavily at the pump juncture.

Re: CSD leak repair

I have and am trying to do both but I can’t getthose last two bolts to get between the CSD and the pump body. *sigh* holy moly. The old flat half metal half rubber washer that was by the big spring in the CSD did not even have a lip on it anymore so hopefully that helps, but if i can’t get the other...

Re: Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

Ok duly noted. Thank you. I still have do do a good engine bay clean before I can rule out any other leaks but I will take a pic even before cleaning just in case.

Re: Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

Putputtinpup: I will check that screw. I have a sneaking suspicion you may be right, as I considered the possibility of multiple leaks. Definitely keeping the CSD though, i change altitudes amd temps regularly. But good to know what to look for if I still have problems after leak and timing are reso...

Timing was set high/CSD leak/black smoke: possible IP or other damage?

Hi everyone-- First off, It's important to start with two facts: bear with me here... 1.)While I am smart enough to have *always* wanted a little, insanely long lived, durable, efficient, mechanical dieseI truck (whoops I meant a P'up lol),I am as ignorant as most of you are brilliant at this stuff-...

Re: 15"'s on a 4x4 Pup: what lift for proper clearance

Well it"s raining pretty good so no frame on tire pics yet...i tried and they were awful. But tires are 235 75R15 's, and here is a pic of what they look like on my ol gal. I am going for a functional, typical lift like you would see on an old 4x4 toyota hunting rig: not a mudder or rock climbe...

15"'s on a 4x4 Pup: what lift for proper clearance

Hi, my PO put 15" wheels from an Xterra on my'81 4x4 pup. Which is fine...except for hard turns; they hit the frame. No bueno. My question is how much lift would i need for full clearance? I like the bigger wheels, but do lots of road driving.

Thanks....
