Sorry to resurrect such an old thread. Above are links to a body and chassis manual for the HDJ81. Can anyone help me get my hands on an FSM for the 1HDT engine itself? I'd like the instructions to do timing belt, water pump, etc.
Thanks for the help.
A few small updates. First, it is getting to be time to change the timing belt on my rig. So, I ordere:
1. timing belt
3. water pump
4. fan clutch
I have a Koyo radiation that Jailbreak Overlander gave me. My current radiator's plastic is pretty brown and I'm considering just...
I had the same generation "old" Gturbo on my rig. I asked them:
Hi, My name is Justin and I am the new owner of a 1HD-T powered 80 series in the U.S. My rig is outfitted with an older Grunter turbo and I am currently tuned to 24psi. I am wondering is 24psi safe to run on the older Grunter...
Doh! I'm an idiot and need more coffee. OP: forget the trans adjustment... you have a 5 speed.
Cleaning injectors and servicing injection pump are commonly required and usually a good idea. I'd definitely check the main fuel screw first... just to see if it's been messed with. It's on...
Yep, the kickdown is just the transmission cable. Mine was loose and caused my engine to want to run really low RPMs. Good call getting gauges, IMO. Your coolant gauge won't be able to tell you if your exhaust gasses are getting too hot.
Nice rig! Mine was a total dog when I got it but a couple of adjustments made it about as fast as a supercharged gas rig. I'd say look at 2 really easy things:
1. Check and make sure your kickdown cable on your trans is adjusted. This will keep you from bogging down at low RPMs while...
Ah, I see. Assumed when you were talking about required maintenance, you were talking Cruisers.
Like I said, mine has been totally reliable and not a maintenance hog (or more expensive than a gas rig).
Next time, take a look at @cruiseroutfit . I just bought a timing belt kit (including water pump) for under $300 (allOEM). They list the 1HDT fan clutch for $122 (Aisin, same as OEM). Now that my old go-to (@Onur ) is out of the game, I'm finding that Cruiser outfit has most of the parts I...
I use my 3rd row... but not everyday. For now, I have one seat installed and the other pulled. When out of town friends/family visit, I use both 3rd row seats... usually to hold my car seats. I really like that the 3rd row gets real seat belts too.
