'93 Isuzu Pickup

Postby naszero » Wed Aug 08, 2018 7:48 pm

Greetings all,

I'm currently on military deployment (to a country known for cigars :lol:) and came stumbled across this diamond in the rough. The pickup was owned by a sailor that was rotating home and I was able to snag it from him for a reasonable price.

The pickup won't win any beauty contests; the high heat and humidity here has definitely taken its toll on the interior and exterior. Parts for maintenance and repair are also hard to come by. Shipping from the mainland takes approximately 2.5 weeks.

The pickup appears to be a 2.3l, with no power steering and no A/C. Most of the emission systems have been removed and many of the interior trim pieces are warped or broken. The ignition tumbler is wonky, and requires a choreographed flip of the wrist to start the truck properly. With all of its blemishes, the pickup still starts reliably every morning.

I joined this forum to learn more about the pickup for maintenance and repair. This particular pickup has served 3 separate rotational units and I hope to keep it alive for the next on-coming unit.
