Re: Turbo Diesel locked up

Very good write-up indeed. I'm going to measure the bores tomorrow and use a straight edge on the deck to see how much, if at all, the pistons protrude the surface. I'm going to send the head out to my machine shop to have magnafluxed and pressure tested. Going to have a valve job done as well. I'v...

Long Box DLX Diesel spotted in Powell UT

Driving through on my way to AZ and spotted this. Looks like it's seen better days, but I'd bet it hasn't been messed around with too much considering it's got the original hubcaps.

Left a note. I'll be passing through again in a few days. Will see if it has moved.

Re: Turbo Diesel locked up

I'm not a diesel-dude, but are those valve head impressions (exhaust, i believe, and not the mickey mouse ears) on the crowns normal, for a diesel? Are they actually impressed in the pistons, or just residual? And I think we're all glad to see that the crank turns! Don't quote me on this, but I thi...

Re: Turbo Diesel locked up

Good work. Now all that motor needs is a refresh. Measure those bores.

Anyone else notice that those valves got a little kissy kissy goo goo with the Pistons?

Re: 4x4 problems

You can just rebuild your CV if you need to. It's very easy. I am not certain if the 81-82 CVs are compatible with 86. There are some slight variants across the years with some minor things.

Re: Injector rebuild

Doing it yourself is not hard. Just need to be surgery clean and make sure to be careful. There is the issue of getting the tester, you can get them for a decent price. I don't think it's worth it unless they're something you'd be checking every 15k miles. 99.9% of people don't. Jerry Lemond is rela...

Re: 4x4 problems

83 and later generally have auto lucking hubs from what I have seen. Are you missing the snap-rings that clips the locking hubs to the axle shafts? I remember I had that problem one time where it sounded like something was ratcheting, forgot a snapring or something... It won't be your transfer case....

Re: Replacement engine

That oil that comes into the pump is at a relatively low pressure. All that oil does is lube the vacuum pump. That's really all you need to know. It drains straight to the sump from there.

Re: Electric fan, engine clean

I have toyed with the idea of doing an electric fan. Figure it would take some of the parasitic drag away. I have always been concerned about the extra draw it would put on the alternator. What kind of amperage are you guys seeing on those fans you have installed?

Re: Weird oil leak

They are called Welch plugs. They drop in, then you deform them, use something fairly sizable and flat and hit it with a hammer. To remove them stab a small screwdriver in and take them out. They can't be knocked in sideways. There is a lip on the block that they sit against. There shouldn't be any ...

Re: Weird oil leak

On my rebuild I put red loctite on the oil gallery and cam shaft plugs. They will pretty never come out until you really want them to.
