82 pickup camper
« on: Sep 10, 2018, 05:17:21 PM »
i bought this sexy thing in 2014, i was only 14 so it didn't get messed with very much till two years later.
my dad had been driving it for about 9 months and blew up second and third gear of the stock L52, so he sold me (at a discounted price since he blew my old one) a w56 that already had the doubler, it has a twin stick.
i will be posting pics as soon as possible.
if you think its the carb, check the timing, if it still don't work, read the manual.

it has the sr5 gauge setup with the voltage and oil gauges down below the center blower vent.
had ac but i removed it, should have just repaired it, it is very hot in st. george
a year ago i put a spool in it since i expected to retire it from being the daily d.

about a year and a half ago it bent a valve, so i took one of my dad's running engines and stuck it in, when i filled it with anti-freeze i for got to top it off after running it for a few minutes to fill the heater and blew the head gasket 1,000 miles later, sent some pretty spectacularly large puffs out the exhaust as it dumped water into the engine.
took my dad's block and my head (the #4 spark plug hole in his was stripped and i didn't feel like fixing it) and built the engine that is in it now and it runs absolutely amazingly, just a little leaky

i put a turbo clutch in it (normal clutch is a 8 7/8 whereas the turbo is 9 1/4 but still 1,200 lbs and therefore a little less "grabby") which really helps with being smooth on the trail.

comparing the two
