    Difference between 3B H55F and others?

    I am putting together Ideas for a future swap. Intention is to have it all figured out before moving forward. Right now I have a BJ73 in this state: 3BII with turbo that is once again weeping oil from the turbo, power is barely acceptable on the highway and you have to watch the EGT guage...

    BJ73 with H55F transfer case rebuild part questions?

    So I"m going to be tearing into my Tcase soon. Gear whine and bearing noise with some occasional slow speed squeaking when first engaging the 4wd. Theres a little slop and some oil leakage in both shafts. My plan would be to tear into it and replace the bearings and seals that are obviously...

    Aluminum front bumpers?

    I have been considering fabricating a new front bumper to replace my previous creation. There's a couple key areas where my old design didn't have enough strength. I've also realized that I like the factory type winch bumper you can stand on and walk on. I'd just like it about 5 or 6" higher...

    DIY simple GMRS repeater

    Just completed my first build of a portable GMRS band repeater (UHF 462/467 MHZ simple license band). GMRS radios are cheap and affordable in many retail electronic stores. They operate on FCC allocated UHF frequencies between 460-470 MHZ. Different from ham the license to operate is merely...

    Fuel tank vent location?

    The fuel tank vent on my BJ73 is obviously clogged. On a road trip after extended driving at speed a serious vacum develops in the fuel tank and I begin to suffer from fuel starvation: reduced power and smoke while running at highway speed, when I pull off on the exit ramp it sometimes stalls...

    HMMWV rims

    Anybody experimented with putting HMMWV rims on their 70 series? They have the cool bennefit of being able to change tires without equipment and with tubeless not tube tires unlike traditional splits. Run flats are also a option, but not something I'd do. Not sure on 16.5" tire choices...

    24-12V converter and radio reception

    I have a 24-12V converter that powers my radio. The voltage from the converter is lower than the normal 13.8V or so normal on a 12V vehicle while running. Modern car radios are designed to run on the normal 13.5V+ of a modern vehicle while running. With a battery operated radio reception...

    Alternative Fuels for Diesel Landcruisers

    Due to the recent cyber attack we face a hopefully temporary fuel outage/shortage. While I won't need to resort to alternate fuels I realize that it's something I need to know more about. 2 of my main vehicles are diesel. One my old school mechanical IDI BJ73. The other a modern BMW X5 35d...

    3b new injectors, unnecessary parts?

    My bj73 has 260k on the odometer. She began to run a little rough and has a little white smoke when the fuel is turned up. I thought about getting injectors pop tested and rebuilt, but I set a new injectors online was almost the same price. So I ordered the new injectors. Yes they're out of...

    3B injector pump troubleshooting?

    I have a 89' 3B with a radial injector pump(not inline). BJ73's been sitting a couple weeks waiting on parts to come in (new wheel hub and bearings). I cranked it up a few days ago to let it idle awhile and charge the batteries etc. After about 10min of idling it dies. I cranked it back up...

    Turbo Oil Drains

    I turbocharged the 3B II in my 89' BJ73. I had problems with oil leaking past the seals. I thought it was a cheap turbo and rebuilt it. It helped a little but still the same deal. I bought another turbo blaming it on the cheap made in China turbo. My oil drain line is 1/2" straight down to...

    Turbocharger longevity/durability

    I recently turbocharged the 3b in my BJ73. The turbo failed prematurely which I mostly attribute it to being a poor quality/faulty turbo. I am posting this thread to both gain knowledge and perhaps prevent future failure. First the Turbo was a TD04L-13T-6 unbranded made in China bought...

    The leaf springs in my BJ73 are fairly flat. I have added about 150lb or so to the nose of my vehicle with the addition of a strong front winch bumper and brush guard. I now have about 1.5" between the front bump stop and leaf spring, and 2.5" between the rear bump stop and leaf spring......I...

    What size thread/fitting for 3B diesel oil port?

    I put a turbo on my 3B. My oil supply line goes to the oil port on the engine below/behind the alternator. The thread on the plug did not match any threaded bolt I could find, but is very close to 1/8 NPT. I assumed it was a taper thread and 1/8 NPT will thread in and then you can force it a...

    Suspension seats: Are they worth it?

    My BJ73 is fairly harsh and bouncy. Seats are original. Tilt adjustment cables are rusted and broken. Seatcovers are entirely duct tape. Not much padding left. I also miss having arm rests...........I'm considering getting some heavy equipment style suspension seats like this: NEW...
