Re: Rebuild time!

Got everything apart today except for crank and pistons. Internally it looks better than I thought it would. I might be able to just hone it and call it good. Cylinders are glazed. No cross hatch left. My biggest worry was the front two cylinders with really low compression. Since they run cooler I ...

Re: Diesel repair help

Id run a compression or leak down test first, maybe check the main and rod bearings too. If those are fine I wouldn't worry about anything really. Unless you have a known problem it's a gamble and waste of time. If you're within spec, install it and send it Rebuilding an engine doesn't necessarily g...

Re: Switching to MUA Diesel Trans Questions

..flipping the removable transmount plate that’s attached to the cross memeber to face a different way when installing a different trans.....Unfortunately I don’t recall exactly what was done but you may wanna search. For the MSG you can flip that plate backwards and it gives you the extra room for...

Re: Switching to MUA Diesel Trans Questions

I have 4.10 gears so it probably would equal out to being whatever a stock 5th with a 3.73 is. I also run stock size tires. Something to cruise at 65 comfortably is what I'm looking to do.

I don't mind running near the ketchup, but it hurts economy very badly. And I'll go deaf.

Switching to MUA Diesel Trans Questions

I'm wanting to switch over to an MUA Diesel Trans. Jerry Lemond mentioned I'll have to lift the body up a little bit and alter the frame. I assume this means cutting out and reattaching the cross member? Has anyone here done this swap? I'm not finding a wealth of information about swapping this tran...

Re: Bypass hose under AC Compressor Bracket Needs Replacing

You might be able to do it without removing anything. I can on mine, but I don't have AC so I don't know if the compressor itself gets in the way... Just use a long screw driver. Cut a slit down the old hose on the fitting and peel it off. If needed take some emery cloth/sand paper top clean the fit...

Re: Rebuild time!

Engine out today. Thanks to Joseph (in the orange) and Torjan (not in the picture) As most of you know the early 4wd are a nightmare to pull since you can't drop the cross member and the oil pan gets in the way of the front axle. So! You have to wrestle the trans backwards and pry the engine forward...

Re: Losing Prime

That fuel line is a new Gates 1/4" line, and I have changed all the hose clamps to the better metal ones. As of now I have changed every fuel hose and hose clamp under the hood, and the only ones that are left are the two on the fuel tank. It looks like I would have to remove the bed to get to...

Re: 4FB1 sudden high oil pressure

You should be seeing battery voltage on that wire. The sending unit is a resistor grounded through the block. Power comes in through the connector to the gauge cluster

Re: 4FB1 sudden high oil pressure

Is that a factory gauge or a manual gauge plumbed into the lube system? Never trust a factory gauge! Always verify with a trusted manual gauge. If the bypass valve was stuck shut I could see really high pressures... But check with a manual gauge.
