Re: Detroit 3-53 swap into luv

Well... I( don't think that 3-53 would really rev high enough unless you messed with the governor. I mean, two strokes do scream and operate at relatively high RPM, but I am willing to bet that engine peaks around maybe 2700 RPM. It would be a little heavy IMHO. It probably weighs about 1000 pounds ...

Re: Glow Plug Check

Thank you Paul! I called your shop today pricing a Turbo pump rebuild. The guy that answered the phone spoke highly of you and your skill. I decided to keep my NA pump since is working fine and just set the injectors to the NA pop off pressure. I am having a local injector shop rebuild the injector...

Re: Glow Plug Check

No damage to the cylinder will have been done. Once it works it's way out of the precup the piston will have just smashed it to dust and out the exhaust valve Remember the hole in my piston? The cylinder with a broken glow plug tip. Jack I suppose that could have caused the hole in your piston. I d...

Re: So you want to add a tachometer!

There is another way you could do it as well. You could use a magnetic pickup and have it count gaps in the pump sprocket by drilling and tapping a hole at the back of the timing plate behind the pump sprocket There are some tachs you can buy a kit and it comes with a magnetic pickup (like the ABS s...

Re: Interchangeable oil cooler? C223

That looks like it just might be interchangeable.

The halves are held together by a large nut. Something like 24mm torqued to around 50ft lbs.

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

Here are some part numbers from 87. They should be interchangeable from 86. I would check out what Andy said. It's very possible that's all you'll need to do. seems to be a somewhat common issue that goes misdiagnosed. I should also add whenever a rear end is failing or something isn't right you'll ...

Re: Raspy Scratching Noise Periodically on Acceleration

4 speed gas pots have the 3.42. 3.73 only came in the diesel 5 speeds.

Those bearings should be universally obtainable. Bearings and shims are pretty much just...Well...Bearings and shims...for the most part. You could take it to an axle shop and they can source just about anything you need.

Re: Adding some gauges

Thanks Mark. School for sure has gotten me interested in not only doing things really the right way, but also just the numbers and data I will see. It will certainly be interesting! I'll be working more on it this weekend. So expect a few updates. I'll be making the panel out of a small sheet of fai...

Re: Number 1 cylinder

Number one is closest to the rad. I only know if a few engines they count backwards on.

Re: Hazards failed, subsequent instrament panel failure

Newtron I looked at my 86 manual. It would appear the circuits are different. I'm not sure what year they changed. Earlier models apparently used two two wow flasher units. One for signals and one for hazards. I'd want to compare them side by side before I say how different they are. To me it sounds...

Re: So you want to add a tachometer!

Curious how the install and calibration worked out? I haven't completed the installation yet. I am going to make a panel to mount some other gauges on and have not gotten to wiring up inside the cab. Though I have completed wiring for the most part under the hood. I am going to run some things off ...
