Re: EGR delete question...

The EGR does not supply vacuum, it consumes it: the exhaust gasses are pulled through the tube by the vacuum created by the pistons, the same vacuum that operates the distributor vacuum advance & carb secondary & sucks air/fuel into the cylinders. There are about three vacuum controlled emis...

Re: EGR delete question...

EGR enters the intake plenum below the carb so I don't see how it could stick a throttle plate. Probably it's just in a bind, see if you can force it free, then clean all linkages & moving parts well with carb cleaner, lube lightly with something like WD-40. The carb secondary is vacuum operated...

Re: Surely someone can tell me..

The threads into the exhaust manifold and the fitting under the intake are M22x1.5, search for a plug or bolt of this size. I found some short plugs from China of this size that installed with a 12mm Allen wrench, but I can't remember the special name they were called. If you never plan to re-instal...

Re: What size 17inch tire fits the best on a 93 isuzu pick up

Look on the driver's door pillar for the factory tire size, every 1" increase in diameter over that stock size will change the effective final drive ratio by about 3%. If you were to use a 3" larger diameter tire it would make your stock 4.10 gears seem like they were 3.73s. Your speedo re...

Re: Sway Bar Question 1982 Diesel 4x4

Don't positively know, but would guess on top. With most sway bars the end is usually close to horizontal with the end link usually close to vertical, the length of the end link is whatever it takes to get the bar end horizontal. Look at where the center of the sway bar mounts, to get the ends horiz...

Re: I need help on setting my timing 94 Isuzu 2.3L pickup

PM me your email address, I have the FSM 4ZD1 2.3 engine section in PDF format- 4G & too big to attach here. It contains all the info on how to install the rockers & all three marks that need to align to get the engine to #4 TDC- which is what you need to time the engine. Read over the info,...

Re: Please ..a quick reply is needed

Just buy the correct size fuel hose locally by the foot & make sure to get the cheaper low pressure hose, the high pressure for EFI systems is way more expensive.

Carb'd only until '95 (maybe some late '94 build dates) for the 2.3 engine.

Re: emissions delete/perfect threaded plug for open holes

My Frankenstein bolts would be ok if only they were 14mmx1.25 instead of 14mm(maybe even 9/16)x1.50 and 2.00!... I recently bought a 14mmx1.25 thread chaser and will be rethreading and installing something..what exactly I do not know yet.. but something that is the correct size & thread. FYI yo...

Re: Lower ball joint part # from autozone, which one

Duralast is AutoZone's house brand & hence cheaper in price, the other is some unspecified brand, probably little difference in quality. If you don't have to have them right away rockauto.com has Moog K9551s for $30ea, other brands for as little as $12, all plus shipping. A 5% discount code is a...

Update: '87 Trooper FSM has 1140mm (44-7/8") overall C/L perch bolt to perch bolt with 540mm from front perch bolt to what appears to be the C/L of the axle snubber (which should also be the C/L of the axle & the spring pack clamp bolt), then 600mm from the snubber C/L to the rear shackle p...

Re: Trooper Measurements Needed

Trooper measures about 45", Chevy LUV measures about 46" as best as I can measure by myself. Center-to-center of frame mounted spring perch bolts. I have no way to measure around the curvature of the spring. BTW the easiest & cheapest way to lift the rear is with longer shackles. They ...
