Alrighty, got the bar off. Drives, and stops fine. I'll have to see how it is on the freeway while I'm driving.
So how'd it work on the freeway with out the rod ?
After driving my truck for a couple days I can say that it drives fine without the torque rod. I'd say it drives even better. I've been prepping for my trip this Monday and I'll post some pics of the stuff I'm taking with me. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
Ive never done it, just know of people who have.
I think that is a pre-83 EFI ignitor. Could have been put on the 82, though. I have the twin brother of that one on my truck.
Plug the long wire into the distributor. The plug with two wires plugs into your wiring harness, while the one with three sits there and does nothing at all.At least, that's how mine is hooked up, and it works.
The "5-0" an the Smog police won't like that at all, just sayin'.
I would try and stick to the same oil
Glad to hear your truck is doing well on the trip. Yes, 6 hour trips get a little cramped in these trucks. I've done some long road trips in mine, and it's always felt real good to get out and stretch my legs, and stop listening to the roar of the leaky exhaust for a while.Safe travels to San Diego!
Made it to Nevada, truck did just fine. Burnt some oil, I was running 10W-30, I've been filling it up with some 15W-40 diesel oil, my truck likes 10W-40 so I am doing the 15W-40 because I figured if anything the additives in the diesel oil would be helpful. Driving all the way to San Diego tomorrow, wish me luck. 6 hours in these trucks gets a little cramped. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
Hey Toybrota,How much oil is the engine using? Do you see any exhaust smoke?Although mixing different motor oil is not a critical issue, I'd stick with the same brand and type... just increase the viscosity.Increasing the viscosity can help reduce oil burning and add some lubrication protection.When I did the sand dune trips to Glamis, knowing my little engine was going to be tach'd out most of the time, I changed oil to 10-40 synthetic and added a 1/2 can of STP Oil Treatment.Gnarls.
