      This is wicked brilliant to use t-slot as the base, glad I asked for details I'm totally going this route! Edit to add: Also the slider is so clever, why wouldn't you do that?!?
    • J
      Very cool! Do you have any closeup pics of the panel attachments on the camper? I've got a home-made pop-up on an M101A that I'd like to add some panels on.

      jellis replied to the thread Oil change questions HDJ81.
      Actually, oddly, if you look at freezer tests and I believe the #s as well you'll find that the T4 actually performs better in really cold weather than the T6 at the same grade. I switched to T6 only because after looking into this I'm running...

      It depends on which one is used, 3M makes a ton of different VHB (Very High Bond) tapes for differing purposes: https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/1204168O/3m-vhb-tape-design-guide-high-res-pdf.pdf However, they are all intended and considered...

      jellis replied to the thread A lot of dash lights on. HDJ81.
      If you search for "christmas tree" you'll find that this is a common symptom when charging is inadequate/non-existent on all 80s (at least the older ones). I replaced my dash bulbs with LEDs and now I get this at every startup for a few seconds...

      I screwed with my PPS solenoid last year, it was frozen so I tore it down and got it working again. Like you, I don't know if it's getting actuated at the correct speed. I didn't really notice a difference afterwards, but I also have 37s...

      You must play the game of pool a bit differently there if it involves a TIG welder! =) I'm also very curious about IAT data and your overall impressions on the utility of this intercooler (was it worth the effort/cost?) since I also have the...

      Well it's funny he said that because I'm certain that all my no start conditions were caused by DRAINING my batteries in parallel! :rofl:

      jellis replied to the thread Premature trunion bearing wear.
      I fully redid mine with OEM equivalents including swapping shims because preload was off. Then I had to get back in there right afterwards for some reason or another. You know what? They were just like yours right away, flat sticky spots right...

      Would the Hilux inclinometers fit in that 80 series alt/compass housing?
    • J
      Very nice! Any chance these or the analog versions could fit into the ceiling-mount alt/compass space on an HDJ?
    • J
      Would these happen to fit in an HDJ81? I'd love to have an inclinometer instead of the non-functioning compass.
    • J
      Good problem solving. I had no idea there were shims in there. Thanks for the followup for future reference to others!

      Watching the classifieds like a hawk is how I got my spare. Also I my PPS solenoid was stuck and I got it running again and also didn't really notice any difference. But I'm also running 37's so maybe that's why....or maybe the input the...
    • J
      The PPS system is just a solenoid on the steering box that allows/restricts flow thru the box at a certain cutoff speed (which I cannot recall now off the top of my head). Very simple, not much going on there. It's also likely stuck/frozen and...

      That's a good point on the RUBBER in the balancer, it's more about time than miles with rubber I guess. They used to measure ozone exposure using cracks in a rubber band as a gauge, ozone attacks rubber. Also, I had one go out on a road trip in...

      Definitely +1 on NOT pulling the engine. I assume you haven't dropped the tranny in these because that's the only reason why you'd think pulling the engine would make this "easier". =) Harmonic balancer failures are rare enough, and your...

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt flexplate/flywheel exploded.
      Wow, super weird then....that means they only had a few hundred miles on them?!? Makes no sense. I do remember double checking the measurement a few times thinking there could be no way they were failing and mine were passing. Ever get your...

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt flexplate/flywheel exploded.
      @Outono did you replace those with new when you put in the new TC? That's interesting because when I put in your transmission/TC I bought, which included these components, and I did the runout test (or whatever?) in the FSM the ones that came...

      jellis replied to the thread WANTED: Dual Color Dome/Map Light.
      @Outsane This is AWESOME!! I love that you also have dome lights in addition to the map lights. When are the map lights coming off backorder?!?

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt flexplate/flywheel exploded.
      Bummer!!! Hopefully something in that cavity is the actual problem and this isn't just a seeming-but-not-actual-cause!!! What's in that cavity is primarily just the TC and flexplate.

      jellis replied to the thread Ebay Aluminum Radiator.
      Overall it still got very hot (220+) in the summer while towing up grades but it took WAY longer to get there than the old radiator. Old radiator would go above 240 if I let it. Definitely a significant upgrade, but not a magic bullet. I need...

      jellis replied to the thread Bolt Question (Shroud).
      Oh man, I've always wondered why aftermarket nuts have a bigger head size! Should have guessed there are also JIS standards for bolts/nuts........too bad I've already invested in a big collection of metric ISO/DIN nuts and bolts.

      Reach out to @CaptBeardilocks, I know he had a bunch of random stuff like this kicking around last winter.
    • J
      Damn, my rig with 37s and a brand new auto/TC only gets ~16MPG on its own and ~12MPG while towing my 4000lb M101A military camp trailer!!! So you're getting nearly 50% better mileage which seems....impossible?!? Is your speedometer/odometer...
