I am going to be doing some research on certain parts from my fiancee's truck. I have no idea what they are or what type of specs they have. I will post up pics of what I am researching and give as much info about the part as possible, if you know info about the part post it up. I will post my findings throughout the day. I am not asking you to go searching for me, but I figure if your reading this post and you know what a part is, make my day alot easier. [cheers]

Specs on truck: 81 single cab - Chev 305, Turbo 350 Tranny w/ manual shift, toyota t-case




Carb

From what I was told, it is a Edelbrock 600cfm carb. That is all I know. I will be looking for a tuning manual, specs on the carb and if the linkage is hooked up. I would like to know which dial is which on the front to adjust the air/fuel mixture.

Alt

It only has one wire hooked up to it. I thought there was supposed to be a couple wires on it that tell it that it doesnt need to charge. I will replace the wire with a new power wire, would 10ga be sufficent? What model of alt is this? Power output?

LineLock

Manual lever linelock, has hard lines going to the back of it. I figure it is from a forklift. Any info on it? Is the valve system trust worthy? Name is Mico Accumlock

Brake Master

Is this a stock Toyota master or has it been upgraded? Possibly a firebird one?

12 Bolt Rear End (Locker?)

Since the rear end r&p decided that they would join together and be one with each other, I am going to be getting rid of this diff. But it looks like it may have a locker in the rear end, which I would take out and sell. Does anyone know if this is a locker for a 12 Bolt?

Distributor

Is this thing any good? How much is it to replace if it gets fubar'd? I would like to know the specs over a stock one.

That is all for now. Any help would be great. [36] [36]


And this is the truck by the way:

holly shit man. you got that truck for your girl.:eek: :eek:

anyways the carb is an old carter. don't know why it says Weber on the side. the two front screws adjust the idle mixture. turn them out until the motor runs smooth at proper rpm. really easy to do on those carbs.

She is really excited about it. Hasn't driven it yet, I drove it 4 blocks. Alot different than my Samurai. :confused:

Thanks Sass,
I dont know why it says Weber either, kinda threw me off. Do you know which dial is which and what I should start it out as on first crank? All the way in and a quarter turn out for base? I see that it is modelled after a Carter AFB carb and that there is some history with Weber making casts for Edelbrock.

What is base timing for a 305? Would it have a stamp on the block so I can find exactly what car/truck this came out of??

gm alts are easly converted to one wier so this might be the caase or the reg just isent installed (where the two prongs come out the side ) the line lock is just a mechanical line lock used in industrial aplications fork lifts and tow trucks are common

EIEIO

Gareth and I were looking at the two prongs and really were not sure, thought the battery would blow if its getting a constant charge. Do you know how to convert it, do you have to rip the alt apart to see this?

That lock is a lever lock style that uses 3/16" and 1/4" fittings.

Seems like it works well. Do you know if thats a stock Master Cylinder? I see you can replace it with a v6 pickup one, bolt in. It does have vented rotors, im wondering if it has fj rotors on it now.

just turn them both equally and maybe start with 2 turns out and work you way in untill the motor starts to run rought then turn them out maybe quarter to half out until you like the idle. i used to have a dual quad set-up and they were super easy to adjust.

I know I don't have a T100, its probably stock by the looks of it.

i think what he means is that you dont have a D44 up front so you may not need any mods.:D

a dana 44 would be a step in the wrong direction

for the carb; there should be a metal tag under one of the top screws, but i dont see one. the number on it will identify the exact model and use it to get a rebuild kit if you need it.

the alternator is a chevy. could be 60, 80 or 120 amp depending on the guts in it. it should start charging with only one wire hooked up if you rev it up a little. to do it properly, use the 2 terminal plug on the side. the red wire (F terminal) hooks to your ignition to excite the field, some people just hook it to the output terminal on the alt., but this could cause a drain. the white wire ( I terminal if i remeber) hooks to your charge light.

the master is from a toyota. the ones ive seen in trucks look like this except only have one resevoir. some cars had 2 like yours, but its possible its from a truck.

the diff pic appears to be a mini-spool.

many chevys have thier coil in the dist. cap. never used one of those accel coils, but they are popular. thier webside should have specs.

nice lookin truck except for the chevy part[f]

We use on the vehicals at work the idea behind the micro lock is to apply brake pressure then flick the lever and it will hold brake pressure so the vehical doesnt roll away,they can be an absolute GOATFUCK! they seem to be fine on a flat surface,providing the brakes are in top notch shape and adjusted correctly. I can get the specs and anything you may need for these.
