    Important update regarding GSMTR 2020

    What kind of candy does she like? This might be an untapped opportunity ... Kids trick-or-treat at the pavilion for candy and sweets ... Adults trick-or-treat for beer and booze

    Builds 1985 JDM 3B Engine Rebuild and Other Stories

    Understand. My filter was new too, but I was desperate enough that I put on a new one to eliminate a possible cause ... even a very remote one. I am confident that you will find cause and correct it, but there might be some colorful language used along the way.

    Builds 1985 JDM 3B Engine Rebuild and Other Stories

    Onur, FYI As I worked through my run issues after the rebuild, my 3B had a spell of starting/running/idle stalls that caused me to doubt my fuel delivery being consistent/reliable. My action was to drain/flush the water separator and replace the fuel filter. After re-bleeding the system, it...

    Thanks. Very logical approach that will allow you to identify and diagnose in a pure 3B configuration which the FSM can aid you with. Then as you incrementally add in aftermarket equipment, you can identify what it is due to, then diagnose/correct accordingly. I will have to retain this...

    Onur, Fantastic. Was she running at idle for the video? [it seemed to be running at higher RPM] Congratulations. I am very interested in how your intercooler performs. Its integration in your 70 looks natural (well thought out).

    Meet-n-Greet in Cobb County on 20June

    I failed to take any. By the time that I thought about, I was the last one on the grass. Maybe someone else, but I don't recall anyone taking pictures [too busy chatting and sweating]

    Stlca chit-chat

    B10 indicates nominally 10% biodiesel. I think it is volumetric percentage. Other biodiesel %'s that I have encountered are B20, B50 and B100. B100 was what I normally bought when it was available (it was the cheapest option at the time).

    Meet-n-Greet in Cobb County on 20June

    Thanks to everyone that came out this evening. Certainly warmer than the meet-n-greet earlier this year. We had a good cross-section of Cruisers 1 - FJ40 1 - BJ70 2 - HJ60s 1 - FZJ80 We had plenty of room for parking and socially compliant COVID interaction, so we stayed safe in these days...

    Stlca chit-chat

    Sport and I went to Windrock last weekend as planned. However, almost nothing else went to plan. On the way up, there was an accident east of Chattanooga that block all eastbound lanes of I75 for a few hours. Rather than just sit on 75, we got off at Ooltewah fueled up. That turned out to be...

    Where do i have 3B injection pump rebuilt?

    Check with the shops in region that specialize in rebuilding diesel injection pumps / injectors / turbos. They should have the tools/skills/parts/data necessary to rebuild your IP. I had the injection pump from my 3B rebuilt this spring at a local shop. They did not recall ever working on a...

    Gave the grass/weeds a trim cut with the mower this morning, so the area is ready for tomorrow.

    Onur, How far are you away from firing her up? This has become so much more than an engine overhaul. Amazing to watch.

    Events/Trails 6th Annual Meet & Greet

    FYI I was just in Oak Ridge this weekend and the hotels are close to empty. Windrock is busy but way off normal attendance. Of note, the Holiday Inn Express dropped my normal rate over $20 per night. I called the hotel directly; mentioned that I was visiting Windrock; they mentioned my...
