Re: Fuel Solenoid?

Maybe this worked as a photo: Looking at the picture I think the control lever assembly can be bend back if the metal is not broken. Those control lever assemblies are made of thick gauge metal. Is hard to tell from the picture if is only bent. Like Paul said the collar is probably seized. So you n...

Re: 86 Trooper II leaky injection pump

Yeah, that's the regulator valve. You will need the special socket for that since using a 10 mm wrench will be very hard to reach and also the valve it will be a little seized because of time. My advice, buy this set ($19.66 at the time of this writing): Triangular Socket Tool Nuts For Bosch Fuse Bo...

Re: Turbo Rebuild

Is the original turbo?

With that $700 or less you could install a new upgrade: GT1544S or GT1549

It won't be an easy install but at the end you'll have a way better driving experience.

Re: Turbo air intake ideas

Yes, is an oil separator. It's the Pro Vent 200. I had crazy blow-by before the rebuilt so Installed the Pro Vent 200 and problem solved. Here is a good instructional video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wtRP5JLLvrI Works very well but you need to make sure to service the filter element every 25,0...

Re: Injector heat shield washers

No, the heat shields will not contribute to your loss of prime. They keep the heat away from the injectors. If you don't have heat shields, you need to install them I have a couple of sets of brand new heat shields if you want one set. About you loss of prime: Looks like you have tried many things t...

Re: Need Some Turbo Upgrade Help

I have a 4AN braided oil feed line going from the block to the turbo.

So yeah, that works very well.

Great to know you got it all figured out now.

When you done please show us some pictures.

Re: Need Some Turbo Upgrade Help

Find out the size and thread size of the banjo bolt. I think is metric. And look for the fitting. I may already exist. Try on Summit Racing, they have a couple hundred adapters. They may have the one you need. For example: 1/8 NPT X M12 1.25 Gauge adapter $13.95 https://www.summitracing.com/parts/at...

Re: Need Some Turbo Upgrade Help

Ok, I think you will end up making a custom adapter/fitting. The hole in the new turbo if I remember correctly is 1/8 NPT. And so are all the fittings you'll see on ebay. And the banjo bolt is probably metric, right? Find the metric size and thread of the banjo bolt and you could make some type of a...

Re: Need Some Turbo Upgrade Help

Hi, good job. On the first picture I would grind some more of the left side of the hole to make it look like the right side. On that area the more flow the better. What kind of GT17 you have? Do you have a part number? It should say the AR number on the hot side. Depending of what you have the turbi...

REAR CRANKSHAFT SEAL COVER PLATE

Hi everyone. I want to share a cover plate I made for the rear crankshaft seal. Some time ago I read a few stories here in the forum about the rear seal going loose. And I though that was just bad luck until it happened to me as well recently. My rear seal came loose and it cost me towing, almost se...

Re: Rear main oil seal

Yes that seal is stock but is NO GOOD. It will come loose sooner or later. My rear seal went loose 2 weeks ago (And it only had 11,000 miles on the rebuilt) and I read of some other people here on the forum having the same problem. What a pain in the rear literally... Install the orange seal, the on...

Re: Replacing clutch, advice?

I just did mine today. So the whole process is very fresh still. Long story short: My rear crankshaft seal went loose 2 weeks ago and I lost a lot of engine oil very fast, almost seized the engine. Needed to tow the truck home... Transmission removed, clutch removed and so on. Made a rear seal cover...
