Static timing problem

I did a diesel swap from an 86 pup into an 89 pickup that i love very much. My problem is that when i built the truck i had the injector pump and injectors rebuilt. Pump front seal was leaking. I lined up the pump timing mark and replaced the belt. It ran really good but i thought it had some noise ...

Re: Engine oil cooler thermostat question

Thank you for your opinion. I did just like you said, put the hose on it and put it in water. When the water temp reached exactly 180 i could start blowing through it. I watched the temp close, so i guess it is suppose to open at 180. It is going back on tomorrow night. Thanks again

I have read several topics about the oil cooler thermostat. I was changing all of my coolant hoses and found that my oil cooler and thermostat was full of sludge. This engine has set up for probably two years before i got it. I did clean everything out but now thinking of just removing the oil coole...

Re: Losing Prime

I ordered john deere part number RE67225 and i think it was around $180 for the complete filter setup. It did not come with the hose barbs. You can get different length filters and im sure different microns. Not sure what micron my filter is but it is used on tier 4 engines. The filters are easy to ...

Re: Losing Prime

Just to rule out the hand primer, you can use a hand primer bulb for a boat motor fuel tank. I just got one from Walmart and I also got a cheap clear filter. I then disconnected the two lines on my filter housing and installed the primer bulb and filter in place of it. I then pumped it up tight and ...

Re: 82 pup adding power steering

I just finished swapping power steering onto my 86 pup and it is a bigger job than you think. If you can get lucky enough to find a pup or luv with the power steering you will need more than just the power steering pump, hoses, and steering gear. You will also need the steering column shaft. The pow...

My speedo sprung an oil leak

I am in the middle of swapping out my heater core and noticed the bottom of the dash just below the speedometer had oil on it. I removed the gage cluster and tilted it to the side and oil ran out of it. What would make oil push up through the speedo cable? could it be a stopped up transmission vent?...
