Engine / Re: 22r overfilling with fuel! WHY?!?!
« Last post by jdurango on Today at 08:52:52 PM »
I rebuilt a friend's FJ40 carb a few months back and Hanes/Chiltons and the instructions included with the kit all had the float spec wrong. At what they suggested, the float never closed. It took a few tries to get it adjusted right. Worth checking. Also, with the carb top off try blowing into the fuel inlet gently to make sure the float is actually seating the needle, and there isn't some defect stopping it from sealing.

The only other thing I can think of is too much fuel pressure, if it's too high it will blow past the seat. Your gauge and regulator seem to rule that out.

Your pickup just started doing this randomly one day without having touched anything prior?

Thanks for the advice! I'll try lowering the float.

I purchased it from the previous owner behaving this way. Apparently he got it from a friend behaving this way.

The dude I bought it from did head gasket, new distributor, wires, plugs, fuel pump, filter, and a few other random things before throwing in the towel. He told me he pretty much narrowed it down to the carb and a rebuild would probably fix it. Rebuild did not fix it.

Worst case, if I can't figure this out, I'm gunna rip all the stock stuff out and go Offy intake + Weber 32/36. I'd just really like to get it running as stock, especially after all the work I put into the carb.

Engine / 22r overfilling with fuel! WHY?!?!
« Last post by jdurango on Today at 05:55:52 PM »
'86 Pickup w/ 22r - Starts fine after sitting a couple days, and runs great for about 3-4 seconds, then runs rough, sputters, and dies after about 10-12 seconds. I can keep it running by adding throttle, but again, would run very rough, and very rich.

Put camera on carb and could see gas filling up ALL THE WAY up in sight window, past viewable area, then sputter and die.

Rebuilt carb, new gaskets, jets, spent hours cleaning everything....new float, new float fuel cut needle thingy, adjusted float to spec (48mm and just under 10mm). Fuel cut solenoid clicks when hooked up but white wire doesn't do to ground, connected white direct to batt neg, now solenoid clicks on with IGN.

Played with all the adjust screws, minor differences in the way it runs, but sputtering/dying problem isn't affected.

Reinstalled carb + replaced lotsa vacuum lines for good measure.....SAME EXACT PROBLEM! Float bowl fills up past sight window very quick, then truck sputters and dies unless I keep applying throttle, which keeps it alive, but running very rough and rich.

Fuel pressure gauge + regulator installed. Reading about 4psi while running. Never overflows with gas, no leaks detected, just fills way too high. Maybe I need to set the float way lower for some reason? Even if it works, that seems like a work around that wouldn't be addressing the actual problem.

Any ideas? Resoldered the stupid grey ECC computer for good measure, but it seems like an issue with the carb itself? Or vacuum line? Isn't that float/needle supposed to cut all fuel going into the bowl? How else would it be getting in there?!

Just took this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhItywSiWy0 ) showing what's going on. I'm keeping my foot slightly on the throttle pretty much the whole time, you can hear it try to die the couple times I let it up. Also, it's running VERY rich this whole time....lotsa white smoke coming out tailpipe (no catalytic on this truck BTW, it's been straight piped).

Thanks fellas!

Transmission/Clutch / Re: R series 2nd gear differences.
« Last post by onwheels on Today at 04:30:32 PM »
No worries. Hopefully it can save someone a few headaches if they ever come across this issue.

I received the new synchro, springs & keys and got set up and ready to re-assemble. Unfortunately I realised the synchro hub needs to be changed as well.
The new 3 piece synchro on the 2nd gear side (33367 in the above diagram) has a different design, with tabs in the center which lock into the face of the synchro hub.

I didn't pick this up, and when checking part numbers, the image shown on the website shows the opposite side, which looks the same as the original part I have. Also, I did not realise there is a recess for the springs to mount in. Luckily I noticed this before I pressed the hub all the way on.

So the new part required is "Hub transmission clutch No. 1" Part number 33361-71010.



You can barely see the recess for the springs in the above image. This is what led me to believe this is the same as the part I have.




Here is a better look at it.




And here is the recessed face required for the synchro to locate in.

Those pathetically dumba$$ environmentalists, with their idiotic windmills, did not ask for an environmental study and now scientists think the sound they make in the water is causing all kinds of issues with the sea life and possibly causing the death of the whales.

Who knows what else the "clean energy windmills" will destroy!! :dunno:

The green weenies are one of the most ignorant and delusional morons to walk the Earth.

We are rapidly running out of natural elements.  Batteries and solar panels may be future fossils. :thumbs:

One that cannot be artificially created is helium. It's predicted we will run out in 25 to 30 years... OH OH!!! bye bye cell phones.  :rofl2:

Helium is found in natural gas deposits.

Without helium many technologies, industries, scientific research, and medical uses will shut down or disappear.

Back to the good ol' days!!  :clap:

theyre already forcing fake "beyond meat" on us. ive heard bugs are the next thing on the menu fer the masses.

ill keep my steak.

RUGER :usa:

Bugs and bug parts are already allowed in our food! :yikes:

We've eating bugs, and mouse poop, for centuries.

How many bugs are allowed in processed food?
Tiny bugs such as aphids, thrips, or mites can hitch a ride from the broccoli field into that
bag of frozen veggies you're about to stir-fry. The FDA's limit is an average of 60 or more creatures
per 100 grams—that translates to 204 pests in your 12-ounce bag of frozen broccoli.
