1982 Isuzu pup diesel up and starting on glow plugs
We finally got the glow plugs in it. I was actually shocked that they came out as easy as they did being the truck was so old. I'm just glad they came out easy. Put some anti seize on them and slapped them back in and now it starts great without ether. The glow plugs have not been working for about 10 years so my grandfather had to use a shot of ether to get it going every morning. People tell me it kills diesels but yet the engine shuts off like it just came from the factory. No ''cummins slop'' as mechanics call it where it flops over for 10-20 seconds after you shut the key off. Oh well I'm happy and so is TheMilitarynut. :D
November FFP Featured Car Of The Month - 1JZ Toyota Pickup
Everyone once and awhile you come across a modern vehicle that truly fits the description of a "Hot Rod". A car built with almost nothing in mind except tire shredding, Exhaust screaming, adrenaline-pumping speed. Gus' 1992 Toyota Pickup is one of those vehicles. What started life as a humble 2WD pickup, now shelters a 1JZ 2.5L Inline 6 turbo engine with a single GT30r turbo force-feeding it -- all backed by a stout 5-speed transmission and a spool-locked rear differential. A stealth black Intercooler and piping blend into the front bumper to lead unsuspecting Mustang drivers to believe there is nothing special about this dented, rusting, poor man's work truck prior to it screaming away from them full-steam, taillights fading in the night. But the scary part is -- it's only on a factory tune pushing a measly 12.5PSI of Boost. With the help of a wideband O2 and an SAFC, Gus plans to spend some time in the near future turning his dreamcrusher up even more. Future plans include bigger, better brakes, and making the body more cosmetically attractive as well. But one thing is for sure, whether it's running a basic tune or turned up over 400+whp, this truck will be sure to put a smile on your face and leave you giggling like a school girl as you destroy the perfectly good meats on the rear wheels.
