Grill refurbish question

Hi the grill on my truck has several cracks but I scored a nice one out of the junkyard. Its black and mine was originally a silverish color. Does anyone know if there's a paint that would match.

Re: Front swaybar upgrade 86 pup

Hey thanks for the info. I have looked at 4 pups and they all had a bar that was around 3/4" so that would be an upgrade from what I've seen so far.

$189 at swaybars.com that includes end links and bushings. I called addco direct and they have 6 in stock.

Re: Luv or s10 for 1985 pup?

I have a 1985 isuzu pup I'm working on. My understanding is that the pup and either the luv or s10 will have similar suspension, frame, etc. and I don't know how to tell which one I would be able to use parts from. Does that provide enough information?

Re: distributor disaasembly/reassembly

Hi the vacuum advance works no issue there. The manual shows a mechanical advance mechanism that sits under the pickup assembly...this appears to be inop. The 1.9 distributor does have a vacuum and mechanical advance? I know the haynes manuals are usually pretty generic and that's what documentation...

Re: distributor disaasembly/reassembly

The vacuum advance appears to be working properly. Disconnecting the vacuum and raising the rpm I see no mechanical advance. The mechanical advance appears to be frozen or binding.

Re: efi tank for 85 pup short bed

Hey on the tank I would prefer to use a tank that is setup to use an in tank pump. However, if its not something easy to do I can use the stock tank and run an external in line pump.
