Re: Fix solid axle issues and motor swap

This thing is going to be amazing when done. You should consider doing this to my P'up for some more practice when done with this one :lol:

Re: Chevy luv brakes

I don't want to jump the gun. But there is a slight chance I have some locking hubs for an 81 82 somewhere. I'll check on Friday. But I think you might be able to find some on eBay too... 81 82 does not fit 83-87

Re: Glow Plug System QSSI

Is your controller currently plugged in? You probably won't be able to find a new controller. I am not meaning to be a Debbie Downer here, but if you try cleaning connections up and that isn't working I would just bypass everything with a switch to the relay. It will save you a lot of time and heada...

I think it also was referred to as UQOS - Ultra Quick On Start.

Re: Glow Plug System QSSI

We never got a "QSSI" system in the US, but it sounds like it might be the same as our QOS. What model year is this? Jack Quick Start Silent Idle. The plugs come on at low voltage at a certain RPM to smooth and quiet engine noise. The 84 imarks had that here in the US. Honestly I would ju...

Re: Carpet is getting wet

I was talking with a member here about this issue once some years ago. He found that water can come in from the antenna wire if you don't have the wire pulled down before it reaches the grommet in the firewall... Pretty easy thing to check. If you can get someone to help you blow some compressed air...

Re: Fresh Engine Rebuild - No Power

What is it about Lucas that you know of that isn't all that great? Now I'm thinking I got bad information from my friend before locally here about it. Lucas won't hurt anything. But the two stroke oil I wouldn't run. I just personally don't like spending unecassary dollars. It won't hurt it, but I ...

Re: Fresh Engine Rebuild - No Power

I run 2-cycle engine oil and Lucas fuel additive all of the time, so I think I'm going to be ok in getting the injectors cleaned up. 7 years was a long time to sit. If anyone has any additional suggestions, I'm all eyes. I wouldn't be running 2 cycle oil in your fuel. It can actually cause injector...

Re: Glowplug lifespan

After doing a little twiddling I got it. I originally just used whatever the program's image exporting function used as defaults which were massive. I went ahead and made it into a PDF and squeezed the diagram a little tighter. I have attached the diagram as a PDF formatted to 8.5 x 11

In the electrical section I have made a drawing of the glow plugs system. I think I've clarified the drawing some more. I'll check tonight.

Re: Valve Adjustment

I believe it is 0.006 intake and .010 for exhaust. Both cold. I have heard of some people setting the exhaust looser as these engines apparently have an issue burning valves. I am not sure how true that is. Easiest way to do valves is working with companion cylinders. 1/4 & 2/3. When you see the...
