    80 Series Fuel Tank Replacement

    11. Decided to really tighten up any rust under the truck. But it was weird. It seem like the Tank was a Rust Donor Sacrifice. Body behind tank was pristine, so I used a Truck Bed Poly Urea Coating to spray on the body before I put a new tank in. 12. So, the PITA part was getting all the...

    80 Series Fuel Tank Replacement

    Just finished up full 80 series fuel tank replacement. My truck since new, driven on East Coast, finally had a fuel smell I could not eliminate with the obvious Fuel Canister blockage etc issues. It was a tank leak from seam. Very rusted. Process: Remove Passenger Seats to access port and...

    Partial Body Lift Possible??

    Ultimately, this turned into a decent project only because I decided to replace the smaller front strap. That is the one that is blocked. I ended up getting the body mount bolts removed and did a small 3 inch lift up on driver side, got the bolt out and put new strap in. I could have left the...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Thank you. It's actually not the longer strap that is the issue. When I was backing out the bolt on the front strap, the bolt snapped off, and I had to drill out the bolt. The issue is the short little strap that bolts into the frame. The bolt that holds that strap is right over the frame...

    Partial Body Lift Possible??

    Has anyone successfully "partially" lifted a body off the frame to get at bolts like the Fuel Tank Strap or Filler Neck? I only need a few inches on the left side to remove the bolt that secures the Fuel Tank Strap anchor-to-body. When I back out the Bolt, it ends up hitting the frame. I have...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Yanked the old Fuel Tank that was leaking. Removed the old fuel straps EXCEPT for the short front one, that bumps into the frame before the bolt will come out. Amazingly even with all the rust on the tank, the body is pristine, so prepped and coated with Truck Bed Liner. Started removing Body...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Added new clamps to Rear Heater hoses under passenger side rear heater pipes when came out of store and found a puddle of radiator fluid under driver side door. When I inspected the area, saw that one of the hose clamps had fully rusted off and was just attached by friction. Didn't have access...

    Here are pics as requested. I will start another thread on the install so I dont clutter up this one, but there are a bunch of things I have learned along the way. The biggest disappointment has been that once you get the iPhone 5, you HAVE to redo the whole USB cable configuration and buy...

    Stealth, Cheap Subwoofer

    Thanks for sharing. Installing Sub this weekend. What about filling the sides of the cooler with concrete? That would give it some serious cabinet heft. I have built some home theater sub cabinets by pouring concrete into a form. The punch pick-up versus MDF is notable. For a less...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Installed two new Rear Gas pistons on the rear hatch. Second pair I had to do since owning the truck (20 years). I guess 10 years on each set is not too bad. Also planning on installing ground wire to finalize "re-install" of an old satellite radio I had in there a while ago. Tried to...

    Blower Resistor Location '94 FZJ80

    Thank you. Just to complete the analysis of what happened when I finally found it: The dealer had FORGOT to plug the wire harness back into resister! I plugged it back in, and runs great again. Well, at least I am a lot more intimate with the way the whole AC and Blower system works now...

    Blower Resistor Location '94 FZJ80

    I am debugging a "only high speed heater blower" problem. All the helpful threads have led me to believe it is either the Resistor or the A/C Amplifier and or transistor (?). I found the relays located on the DS kick panel, but don't see the resistor. Can anyone help point me in the right...
