  1. Did oil pressure drop when hot? When I lost a balance shaft bearing, I noticed a high rpm rattle, but a few days on I noticed oil pressure at idle was lower on gauge. other bearings were ok but it put trash all thru engine, had to rebuild it.
  2. Pics aren't showing A should be just a drain in case water gets in airbox, B and C sound like the oil catch can, bottom hose goes to oil pan nipple, top hose goes to nipple on air accordion between air box and turbo intake, center hose goes to pipe that connects top rear of valve cover, as boost comes on the PCV shuts closed then turbo pulls crancase vapors into the inlet, residual oil collects in the can then drains back to oil pan, that explains some oil mist in inter-cooler. Be sure that can is flushed clean and not clogged. Dad
  3. I run a clutch fan and shroud on my 87 along with electric front fan, ran same setup with my 87 shetland. Shetland had an aluminum radiator and working A/C. setup was great and reduced the load on the stock alternator
  4. I'm in Youhgstown, My son Bill (Coldscrip) is in Twinsburg.
  5. My mistake, it looked like only pin end was balanced. Carry on! Dad
  6. You need to balance both ends of the rod, pin end and crank pin end, Each ends weight will change when balancing the other.
  7. Most times I see the small plug missing on the brake or clutch pedal for the switch to turn off cruise when pedal is pushed in . it gets brittle and breaks apart, I think we used a plastic body pin like type to hold interior door panels on. Take a look and see if yours is missing. Dad
  8. Man, that's Brutal, I know you are younger than I am but that is way too many hours. I start next week at another dealership looking at less hours.
  9. Be sure they have front cover installed when they deck it. Dad
  10. I put in 96 hours in two weeks , so I don't get on much, hoping yo move on to something with less hours. Dad
  11. Look very close, in my experience oil in the coolant can be cracked cylinder wall or a crack in cylinder head just under cam, rare but have seen it so don't just assume it was a head gasket and not look closer at head and block. Dad
  12. Most of you know that I closed the machine shop in October 2020. Still in process of dissolving the coproration, The parts sales all ran thru my machine shop parts department. Wife and I have been kicking around starting up again just selling Quest parts and even spoke with the Attorney handling the corporation closing. It appears that it may cost about $500.00 to get set up to buy and sell legit. I still have my supplier contacts but of course need a vendors license, federal tax id etc The new IRS regulations are pushing us this direction. There really isn't a lot of income derived from selling Quest parts, but the new regs are forcing people to not fly under the radar. I'll keep you all posted. In the meantime I need to come up with a name..... Suggestions? Dad
