I have some used fryer oil you can throw in it :D
I'll admit. I walked blindly into that one.

To the best of my recollection, the person who fried the wings at the hoedown has infinite respect with his fellow wheelers. ;)
This is Jeremys career path........

Hey, I started out mopping the floor. But now... now I'm washing lettuce. Soon I'll be on fries; then the grill. And pretty soon, I'll make assistant manager, and that's when the big bucks start rolling in.

almost forgot.......:flipoff2:
Dan,in the great words of X-Factor, AT least I still have a rig

Oh.... :flipoff2:
10.5 mpg down to Attica in 3rd towing the pig

14 mpg back from Attica in OD towing the pig, no trans temp problems.

22 mpg driving to Milwaukee to pick up a 1FZ and A343 and back.

The Tundra never did that.

And now the rest of the only paid what for this truck?
Gotta love the old 12 valves. Glad to hear that you didnt have any trans temp issues towing, its definately something that you need to watch in the 1st gens with the non-lockup converter. I take it splicing those wires together allowed it to shift into overdrive?
yup. That did the trick. It still runs out of power at 2000 rpm. I'm gonna change the fuel filter tomorrow and put the 3200 spring in. If that doesn't work I'll mess around with the fuel pin. I've also heard of algae growing in the tanks of trucks that sit and clogging up the intake screen. I'm hoping I don't need to take the tank down and have it flushed.

I put the pot on the TPS too so I can control OD from in the cab.
Can you hear the lift pump ticking loudly when you are standing next to the drivers door? If you can hear it now, and still hear it after you swap fuel filters then you might have a clogged screen, but chances of that are slim. Put the governor spring in, it makes a HUGE difference with these old motors, and for what it costs you cant go wrong.
