    Recommendations on re wire kit

    I am in a similar boat, '78 with mods, and desires for additional options. My main request is a harness that has water resistance for splash or flood. What is available for our classic vehicles?

    Project Fj40? Good idea, bad idea, or worse idea?

    If he was serious at $6.8K he would have cleaned it up and made some effort. I don't see that here. He has not shown interior pictures of identified problems. As a project vehicle, it may have a good base. I would offer $2.0 K and haggle from there, him justify the additional money to pay. I...

    Won't Start

    The relay is not typical but is used when heat is an issue on the starter. I tried to jump the relay as talked about above. That did not work. So now its time to back up a little more to the ignition switch where the problem could be between the "on" and "start" wires. Option 2: punt and...

    Won't Start

    While I worked on it I cleaned all the connections so I am confident that it is grounded. I am currently running power through a four post relay, and then down to the starter solenoid. THe noise is definately in the relay and for some reason it is not closing the connection go get juice to the...

    Won't Start

    My cruiser won't start. I have tried to diagnose the problem but so far have only managed to buy new parts. A fairly quick search here did not identify a solution but gave me an idea or two. I would appreciate the wisdom of Mud to help me stop buying parts. The cruiser is not a daily...

    slam noise on acceleration

    Opened up the differential and found this. Looks like the inside bearing is shot, Bottom has a lot of gear dust. good news is that the ring and pinion look more or less OK. I will take it out in a few days when I have time and work on it. Hopefully just a bearing replacement and rebuild...

    slam noise on acceleration

    I pulled the drive shaft off and checked the nut. It is still pinned in place and I do not see any indication that it moved but I did not have a torque wrench with me to test it. The flange had about 30 degrees of rotation and a small wabble. I just ordered a Diff rebuild kit. I have...

    slam noise on acceleration

    So what I am understanding is pull the locker out and rebuild the rear diff with the original spider gears. This could be an easier solution if the power trax in the rear is messed up. I have both sets of spider gears so it would be easy to do but does it matter if I happen to put the front...

    slam noise on acceleration

    Thanks for the input. Need to order a rebuild kit, then ease it into the auto hobby shop on base for a day of work. Did not really want to do a third project but I should be able to knock it out if the inside is not completely jacked up. I need this running solid because I plan on pulling...

    Lunch box locker? what does this mean? I have a lockrite in the front and a power trax limited slip in the rear.

    slam noise on acceleration

    I just pulled the rear drive shaft off the pinion. The pinion nut looks secure but there is about 30 degrees of rotation in the pinion and a very slight ammount of wobble in the flange (L tl R; Up and Down). Guess this rotation is the slack that is taken up when it "slams" under power...

    slam noise on acceleration

    After searching around using various search terms I am still more or less at a loss at isolating the problem. I have a few louder than usual noises coming from what I believe to be the back half of the cruiser between the T case and Rear axle. All of them concern me but the one that worries...

    Helicoil Transfer Case

    If I drill and tap the aluminum, my concern is that I will cause weakness in the tcase, the timesert or simular product should help recover some structural strength, right? How much material do I have to work with there? Its been a while since I was up close and personal with my tcase. My...

    Helicoil Transfer Case

    I did google, and found a vendor in my town. My bad for asking before looking. I am hoping that with a insert secured in the hole I can achieve a stronger thread and avoid problem with the two metals as an insurance against my own ability to mess things up.
