A stop at arrowmntdiesel

I had a short, but great, visit with Mark on Saturday. Boy what a treat to see his place, for someone like me it's true heaven, pup's everywhere and parts to last a life time! He is allowing me to store my long bed on his property for a while as I am moving to the state of Utah in a couple weeks and...

The tranny on my 94 Pickup was getting very noisy, especially during long trips.
Is this at a stand still in neutral and at low speeds or all the time when driving?

Re: Bucket Seat "Upgrade"?

I've read that all P'ups have inner mounting holes for transmission-side mounting rails, but I have not yet confirmed that. I don't know that they come with the mounting holes. Everyone that I've seen do bucket seats had to weld or drill holes, but it isn't the end of the world. If you do weld, avo...

Drum Brake hardware question

Does anybody here know where to get some drum brake hardware for an 82? Or if hardware from a later year works?

I can't seem to find any for my 82. Places stock 84 and later but I am unsure if it would work. I know the brakes changed a little in 83 or 84...

Why are rear bearings not in an oil bath?

So I had a rear wheel cylinder stick and it cooked the grease and outer seal :( . So I pulled the axle shafts and did the seals and repacked bearings. Actually not a hard job at all. Bearings we're still good. So why did Isuzu do this? Why not go with an oil bath like virtually every other manufactu...

My Sport Trac should weigh about the same as a Trooper so I’m hoping that it will putt putt around town for me.
Trooper weighs something like 3600 pounds, Sport Trac weighs about 1000 more pounds

Re: Boost

You should see the size of a turbo on a Bobcat 90HP Kabota. tiny, making 90hp, with boost right off idle Little baby turbos!! But seriously. You are 100% correct. Most people just slap a big turbo on and think it's great until they fire it up. I can confirm the tiny turbo deal, one engine I maintai...

Re: Process of Elimination Exhausted

Through the years, with all of the electronics on diesel engines today, and the revamping of the seals for the pumps and the injectors, it is my understanding that the products of today don't require the lubricity that the mechanical pumps of yesteryear did. Also, there is not near the lubricity in...

Re: My pup! (Or rather my grandfather’s hand me down pup)

Love the story!

Honestly I'm not surprised it's the original injectors. Mechanical injectors, if you run good clean fuel, will stay good for a long time. Spray patterns might be a little wonky but nothing crazy. Ideally you get them checked every so often.

Welcome aboard.

Re: Process of Elimination Exhausted

I forgot to mention that I also run Lucas Fuel Additive and 2-cycle engine oil in my fuel I don't know if I could ever find the SAE article on it again. But 2 stroke oil can cause stiction in your injectors. Using the Lucas stuff is fine, but I'd keep off the 2 stroke oil. Realistically diesel is p...

Re: Intercooler with a turbo

Running an intercooler can bring your EGTs down a fair bit, but the best way to combat EGTs is to not go crazy on the fuel and timing especially on an IDI engine. EGTs tend to be pretty high on them even NA. Typically an intercooler is mounted in front of the radiator and has air drawn through via t...

Re: New Diesel Build.

Just be aware that sport trac weighs probably about twice as much as a LUV. So it'll be like driving with your payload maxed out all the time, which honestly does get a little old. And the 5 speeds on these are not exactly stout by any means as they even failed in the trucks they came in.
