View Full Version : The Green Bastard Re-Build

I crashed my truck back in november so since then ive been slowly rebuilding her. The 81 cab box and frame were all mangled in the wreckage so i bought toyon35s pumpkin princess to transfer all the running gear and interior over to. Ive taken out the 3" body lift and left it with my original 2" suspension. this truck is going to be my fishing/camping truck so after its built im planning and building a tube canopy with a canvas topper and a platform on the top to sleep on. Im hoping to get some new 31 sport kings or something along those lines.

clutch is done. power steering is done. dash is in/ wired up except for the cd player. the heater duct work is done.shifter seat and socket are on order from marlin. LOTS more work to do. Discovered a huge leak in my rear brake line. i will be swapping it out for the one on the green truck which is new just a minor inconvenience. had to do the brakes on my DD so that ate up some valuable toyota time.

SHITTY
08-28-2009, 04:47 PM
looks awsome . what colour are you going with? the green again or different?

rogasm
08-30-2009, 08:44 PM
it will be green. i changed the clutch master today and solved some funny buzzing issues inside the cab by changing all the fuses. but while driving yesterday it started acting really crazy, it felt like the throttle was sticking and unsticking causing the whole truck to jerk and eventually stall out. im stumped on this one. fuel filter? carb vaccuum lines? any ideas?

dirka dave
08-30-2009, 09:01 PM
Well we know the timing is good..

The valve still need to be set, but sounds like a fuel problem to me.

rogasm
08-30-2009, 10:31 PM
yeah im leaning to fuel problem too. but why all of a sudden? it was driving fine and then just started to shit hard. after consulting the book this is what it says... dirty or clogged carb
low fuel pressure
carb out of adjustment

so it will have to be observed more closely but it ran fine today and yesterday in reverse and 1st but in 2nd and 3rd it started sputtering and eating shit. i checked the float and it was high but not too crazy
-rogasm

dirka dave
08-31-2009, 10:32 AM
I am going to guess the float is getting old and starting to absorb fuel.

Might be time for either a new carb or time to rebuild yours.


This happened to mine years ago and at the time it was cheaper to upgrade to a WEBBER !!

RCCruiser
08-31-2009, 03:01 PM
I was having fuel problems with mine a while ago. It turned out there was a whole lotta crap in my tank. After a few filters, and a couple pumps, I think I finally got it all out. I also had a kinked fuel line. Could check all that out...:dontknow:

rogasm
08-31-2009, 06:20 PM
i think ive narrowed it down to being either the filter or something clogging the vent off the tank. definetly not carb issues. ill figure this out another im going to bobby sox for dinner now!

didnt tinker with it today. should be easy enough ill just get a new alternator and it should be fine. i was surprised how long i managed to wheel this thing on mechanical power. it was sketchy though. learned i need some better tires bald sport kings are a bad idea. so ill get this electrical issue dealt with then do the remaining body work and prime it this weekend. maybe buy some new tires too.

well since my alternator went at norrish on labour day everything has been kinda scrwed up. i have no reverse lights, running lights or instrument panel lites. the gauge fuse keeps blowing and i have no idea. i checked the grounds and plugs... i have headlights and brake lights and im pretty sure its not the switch on the steering column because i tried an extra one i have.


any ideas would be help full

for the fuel issue i would take ur tak out nd clea it, give it to dirka he cleaned mie out real good. i say start there because rather than buying a new carb and just havin that one gettin all chewy, u just start at the source

whazhappenin69
09-19-2009, 08:25 PM
Carb issues....Toyota.....been there.....Check down the throat of the carb. It's been a while since I worked on one but the throat of the carb is a pressed insert and is prone to shrinking over time and becomes loose in the bore....If it's loose it will move around and cause surging, stalling etc. I have had 2 carbs do this...I attemted to repair one of them but it diddn't last very long before it came loose again.

09-20-2009, 05:38 PM
