Hey man, thanks a lot for the vacuum line diagram, that helps out a whole hell lot. Figured since I've got this running for the most part now I'd flex it a bit in my buddy's complex, lol.


(Crappy picture)


Going to change the o2 sensor tomorrow, went 93 miles on 14 gallons of gas, you can do the math . Also still awaiting my vinyl floor and my new shackles

Not too sure what it is anymore, I can't give it any gas if it's under 2k, i gotta pretty much let the transmission speed it up. Just replaced the flywheel yesterday, so that's fine. I'm having my mechanic diagnose what it is and I'll replace it myself. It's drivable, just can't get out of it's own way.

Probably only one of the problems. Check you thermostat to make sure it's working properly. What did your mechanic say?

Starter fried at the mechanics today actually, that's 3 now, so we towed it back to my place today. gonna rip out the tranny and all AGAIN take the flywheel and change the ring gear on it so we can find out why the damn thing keeps eating the teeth off the starters. Mechanic didn't get to say anything about it, while it's apart i'll yank the cats off and see if that fixes anything. Also, I'll check the thermostat while I'm at it. Thanks

Maybe a mild lift in the future and to swap out the weak axles. Need it to possibly get me up to Jacksonville and back safely
Mainly focused on getting it up and running, then the body work, then I'll worry about lifting it. Hoping the 31's from the Ranger'll fit without rubbing too bad

Alright, after neglecting this for a week because of family issues it finally runs again. Had to change the flywheel ring out and get a new starter solenoid. Going to get the CEL checked tomorrow

I guess technically she never really died, she just kept spinning teeth off of the flywheel and starter, so she was out of commission for a bit.

Ok, so I bought a code reader and I have codes 51 and 67. So ECT signal voltage is too high, how do I go about fixing this? 67 i believe is because a sensor is unplugged on the transmission.
