1982 diesel Pup

Post by lakeparkv8 »

Hello guys! I have recently(March 21) purchased this little Gem. This is my first one and I have been after one for a long time. The guy I bought it from bought it new. It has 266000 miles on it. I had a couple of friends that had these trucks through the years and I heard nothing but good about them, from dependability to fuel mileage. Well guess what! The one I bought has a problem now. The timing belt broke and damaged the rockers and push rods. So I found this site looking for parts. If anyone can help me find these parts it will get me back on the road. Looking forward to the forums here. Have a great day!

Welcome to the site, Mike. Sorry it had to be because of these circumstances. Changing the timing belt is usually the first step that we recommend for new owners who don't know when theirs was last changed.

What part of Georgia are you in?

Saw your posts in Parts. Someone should have what you need.
