Re: Back online, but not fully restored

Wow, I just noticed this and want to say how much I appreciate your time and effort Jack. Running website can be a daunting and often thankless project. I know I'd be lost without it when it comes to figuring things out with my crazy turbo diesel pup. As an aside, your pup, the red and silver LS lo...

Re: NA c2323 and TD c223 differences

Piston oil squirter regulating valve opens at a different pressure on the turbo engines. Stays open down to 30PSI I think... NA Is higher... Injection timing is slightly retarded compared to NA. Injector POP is set at a higher pressure of 1900 PSI vs 1400 Rods are different. Piston pins are differen...

Would a clogged oil cooler or cooler thermostat cause over heating?


It wouldn't those systems effectively are bypass from the head. The rest of the coolant gets pushed into the rad

Re: Cooling: Head scratcher heating issue

We are currently about 60゚ today and it's not only idle driving its the same way but when put on the interstates or drove at about 55-60 miles per hour for about a mile or 2 it starts overheating that's why all the new parts but I think I'm going to have to do a pressure test because the radiator i...

Re: Scheduling a West coast meet for August.

It is hard to plan anything right now, with COVID-19 still out of control. I'd love to think things will be different by then. We plan to travel to the Portland area (actually Salem) eventually. I'd love to pop up for a meet, if during our visit. Jack That is a thought I did have about COVID. Perha...

Scheduling a West coast meet for August.

Hello all! I feel it's been too long since there has been a meet. I'd like to schedule one in August, or July. If I pick a date now would there be people willing to commit? I'd be willing to put something together if I could get, say, even 3 or 4 people to come up maybe an hour north of Seattle. Hal...

Re: Radiator re-core recore costs

Thanks for the info, any quotes offered to rod it out or boil them? Honestly rodding or boiling out would most likely just cause it to leak. I flushed the cooling system on one of my trucks. It flushed away all the gunk that was keeping it water tight. These babies are getting old so there's going ...

Most likely some type of electronically controlled pump is on that engine. Considering the year this seems about right.

That's actually pretty normal. I don't know of a 4 cylinder that doesn't make a transmission sound a little suspicious at idle... Even with balance shafts and a heavy flywheel....
