Do you guys think the pump will be fine as it sits? A little angled?
Beautiful truck! I love the color! Welcome...
I wouldn't worry about a little angle from a functionality standpoint. My OCD might make me fix it anyway though...
I'm the same way, so what I did was forced myself to believe that its just following the line of the bracket anyway!
Water pump went much better second time around. Plugs were supplied not already driven in with blue loctite.
New glow plugs and refurb on the gp harness done.
Water pump and thermostat done
New belt done
Most of the coolant is out
Just need to plug in the feed line for the facet pump and wire it and she’ll be good to go.
Figured out my hard start and smoke was due to a loose ip supply line that was leaking fuel. Ordered a new kit from Mike green but that can wait till it gets here.
All done . Water pump, electric fuel pump, glow plugs, tstat, belt , two new batteries
Nice work! That always feels good to knock out the maintenance items. Starts and runs well now?
Glowplug relay started acting funny this morning. So I guess I’ll be buying one of those.
Last night ran awesome and I ran out of fuel on the test drive, reprimed it today n it seems like I’m getting air in the system again as I’m getting white smoke when giving it throttle as well as a little stumble on idle. Maybe the oring on the ip feed is no good (fitting was loose I tightened it). A push lok feed kid is on its way from mike green though.
So ya I dno it runs better but still a few mice in the system.
Oh and who is Mike Green? I haven't heard of him before you mentioned in this thread about getting parts from him.
Truck looks great! Any info you can provide on that bed topper would be highly grateful! Exactly what I'm looking for! Thanks and Welcome to the forum!
How much was the feed line kit if you don't me asking? I need this myself asap
I don’t know much on the cap but I’ll try and find out. The kit was $55 hrs on the fb idi enthusiast page he sells a steel braided kit for 105 I think, I am a little tight on cash as we just got a house, a puppy, and the truck nickle n dimed me on this project so
I opted for the push lok kit.
I dno if this is against the rules but here’s the page he has on fb. He also has tons of misc factory parts.
Whats the GP Relay doing?
The relay clicks , the wait to start light turns on with key on and immediately turns off. Occasionally when the truck is "warm" the wts light stays on for 2 Mississippi's and then shuts off.
I should have said "controller" not relay as I think the relay is working properly.
