BJ70 Dash WTB
I have a 1985 BJ70 LHD Canadian destination
I want to purchase a upholstered brown dash, top.
Please PM me what you have, would like it crack free as mine already has the cracks.
This dash sits on top over the glove box/radio area of the dash.
Possible bad vacuum pot, if I remember correctly the pot has a spring inside, the vacuum pulls the pot diaphram which moves the link arm shutting the intake butterfly shutting down the engine.
If I got this right, the spring could be broken, when the boost hits, the volume of air passing over...
You pulled the pan to install the rear main?
Did you use a gasket for the pan or silicone?
I did this and used an aftermarket pan gasket, it looked like a rubberized cork. Mine leaked because the gasket broke down over time. I had to pull the pan and I used silicone, does not leak now.
I converted a 13BT from 24vdc to 12vdc. I think I have several 24vdc VSV's left over. I can check my shop for them if you want.
my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am leaving town till Friday so I will try tommorow and see, if I can't get to my shop it will be Saturday.
Let me know if...

It wil make you down shift more often when climbing, take alot longer to get up to speed as in hwy speed, increase your egt's and probably won't help fuel consumption.
Install 4.10 or 4.11 gears and never look back.
I purchased 3 gauges from glowshift for my 96 Powerstroke, EGT, Boost, and Transmission Temp. They seem to be good gauges. I have had zero problems with them.
Post up if you purchase them and you have problems.
I did this
I swapped out a 3B in my 1985 BJ70 with a 1987 13BT out of a BJ74. The block of the the 13BT needs to be a Red block, it is the same configuration as the 3B, the bell housing needs to be the aluminum bell housing there is no difference between the 3B and 13BT aluminum bell housing...
