Thanks! I really appreciate it. Doesn't hold a candle to what you're building right now but sure will be fun!
If that ever becomes a hassle swap on 8 lug outers. You gain an inch per side. Then run 5 to 8 lug spacers on the back.
So just took it for a short drive 10km. I reset the steering box yesterday to proper in lb spec on the main input and then adjusted the sector to 15 in lb max at center of the stroke.
With the 35s this stock steering pump can't keep up. Sitting still I can only turn the steering about 1/3rd of the turn off center before the engine wants to die.
Base rpm is 650-700.
I'm going to the the pump relief mods to get more flow and pressure out of it and we will see if that helps. If not then ram assist is in my future!
It's fine while driving around and going slow just not rock crawling slow.
I also pulled 3-4 deg of base timing out. Still wants to diesel a bit. My heads getting too hot? I'm running a 190 deg t stat. Should I run a colder plug? Sitting at 5 deg base timing now.
Upto about 12-15 with the vac advance connected at idle. Could this be the issue?
Get a little chirpy around the Corners like the lunchbox doesn't want to ratchet around corners lol!
I had the same problem with the stock pump after I went to Detroit lockers. After I did the valve mod it would turn in the rocks like a Cadillac. Got to be careful not to over do it. One of our members blew up his box.
Drop RPM by 50, read plugs, check for vac leaks, and see how much of your transition circuit is uncovered at idle.
Steering pump valve mod made a huge difference. Can steer so easy sitting still!
I did the 2 #4 washers under the stem and stretched the big spring to 2.25".
Yes, it makes all the diff. Unfortunately for me I didn't find out that I couldn't turn until after I drove two hours to the trail.
I only needed one washer. Well, and a new pressure hose after the old one blew apart. Did you grind the pin down?
Yep I did took like 0.130" off it. I've got a brand new hose on there.
Ha awesome job! Great work really looks like she is ready to go wheeling! You've made a ton of progress since i was last here! Can you tell me:
1. what is the width of the rims you are using?
2. are the new tires quieter on the street than your old mud tires?
3. For the steering pump did you drill out any passage ways to make them bigger? I have done a number of power steering pump upgrades but never drilled out any passage ways as I heard that can cause issues! Adding a shim or 2 has always helped.
15x 10" wheels.
Maxxis Razr MTs.
Honestly these surprised the hell out of me, so freaking quiet for an MT, really no louder than my BFG KO2s on my truck, I'm sure they will get louder as they wear.
I did drill the main passage way in the 1" fitting to 5/32.
This was apparently a stock size for hydro boost set up's.
Great info good to know as I have another pump to boost pressure on 35" tires. I can hardly turn them sitting still on pavement or parking it in a lot....
Scored a 205 pc toolset on sale at local Cdn tire for $100 reg price $499. I keep one of these in every vehicle I own. Should fit nicely under the rear seat. I find if you've got the tools you won't really need them!
Same with a fire extinguisher. I put a quick release mount in the back of the roll bar with a 2lb abc.
Nice score on the tools. You can never have too many on the trail.
Out driving right now.
So my speedo is 15km/hr low!
I got the steering all sorted out. Tracks straight as an arrow. Gets better the faster you go! I took the Ruffstuff specialties The Cure out. It didn't seem to have any effect on what it's meant to cure. Must be more a jeep thing.
Noticed my rad has a pin hole on the upper hose connection. Still seems to hold pressure just weeps a bit. I put some JB kwic on it for now.
Maybe a new aluminum one in the near future. I'm loving this it drives fantastic!
Wow, first long drive on the 35's! Freaking awesome. Got a few compliments and a truck full of hot chick's loving it! Told my wife and she laughed!
We drove around 40 km today. And aside from it wanting to kinda die unless its fully warmed up gotta keep my foot into it.
I brought it back up to 10 deg of timing but dropped the idle to 600. Seems better. The choke still drives me bonkers. Wish I went with the manual choke.
It cruises at 2000-2100 rpm at 90-95 km/hr. (55 MPH).
My scout less depression has ended!
Heck yeah...glad somebody's getting to ride...I always liked a manual choke myself
The choke worked great when it was cold now that it has gotten warmer do I lean it out or fatten it up?
If I remember correctly it will also say something like warmer or summer in one direction.But when its cold,loosen the screws and turn it till it starts to open,thats the correct direction,now turn it till it just closes,lock the screws down and try it.
It shows lean <-- counter clockwise. That's it. I've got it 1 notch clockwise from center for the winter.
Screwed that up lol. It says lean clockwise!
