Hi all!

Postby MadelineKay » Fri Apr 20, 2018 6:28 pm

I just recently bought my first Isuzu P'up, and am beginning to make small (for now) repairs on it. I've known about this site for a while, and I think it's pretty neat that people have come together to help each other out on this specific truck. I usually can't afford to take my truck to a mechanic's shop, and I want to learn about how to fix things myself, so I can see this site being very useful. Anyways, my first project is my brakes. I've changed disc and drum brakes before, so hopefully nothing I haven't seen doesn't pop up.

This little P'up is a 1983 5-speed (my first manual) diesel short bed.

Hey Duck, the person I bought it from changed the timing belt for me in March. No worries there!
