Re: Stuck at full throttle after sitting for 2 years.

I am having the exact same issue. When I pulled my engine out of a trooper 3 years ago it ran perfectly. Today I started my truck for the first time and it revved to redline! Unfortunately mine has not gone back to normal on its own... I was thinking I might run the pick up pump I added for a while...

That bushing is gunzoed. Throw in new ones.

Fuses are always the first things to look at. And if they check good give a wiggle around there and spray some contact cleaner in there. :D

Re: 1986 Spacecab Engine Rebuild

There is a place in Tacoma that does it. If you have it done, be sure to make it clear to not add any extra lift or alter the profile. It has been done before, but in my opinion it's kinda pointless unless you're adding loads of boost.There really isn't enough room for performance gains without risk...

Re: Reducing black smoke and clatter

Sounds normal to me. But it's hard to judge in a recording. Smoke could be excess fuel or injectors need to be tested. Since it's a cab over it's gonna be noisy. I used to drive a bus with a 2004 DT466... Doghouse right by me. That was dang loud. I'd do what fiatspider suggested. Though I'd one up h...

Re: Isuzu 4FB1 overhaul/resto-mod for CJ5 conversion

Anyways especially for a rock crawling Jeep be sure that you have the largest rough use battery, a robust power feed to engage the solenoid and the charging capacity to keep the battery in tip top shape as once you push the starter on the 4FB1 it can leave you stranded which will be particularly ba...

Re: Rear End Slips

Halden, lugging should have no effect on the differential unless the lugging causes it to buck violently. And I think we're all puzzled at the lack of noise preceding this failure. My first one got annoyingly loud before I replaced it. Jack True lugging should have no effect. But if you think of th...

Re: Rear End Slips

Paul, I had a thought, diffies aren't really my thing, but we know over time these develop some slop in the pinion shaft bearings. Some people remedy this by torquing the flange nut further to get things back together. I am wondering if it's possible he's far enough out of adjustment that some damag...

Were you experiencing any leaks, howling, vibration, howling, whining before this failure?

Re: 1986 Spacecab c223t 4x4 5sp - WA State

Very desirable! Was this compression test hot or cold, ? It makes a difference. They're also affected by so many things. Like how good your starter is cranking. That's just one thing. So don't jump to any conclusions to quickly. A lot of manufacturers don't even give compression specs (like Cummins)...

Re: Thinking of making an upgrade to the glow system

Paul, The stuck systems in both of my trucks work great. This is an exercise in creativity. It would be an addition to the stock system that is activated by the charge relay closing activating a single shot timer turning on a basic pwm circuit... My thought is having the plugs stay on for a minute w...

Thinking of making an upgrade to the glow system

I am wanting to add a circuit that will keep the glow plugs activated at 5 volts for maybe a minute or so that activates once the charge relay closes. I might have a switch to deactivate the circuit if it's a nice warm day. I have one main concern and that is the current limiting resistor. Those thi...
