    Front disc dust shield

    Have checked the TM's and they only show a single piece part. When several bolts holding the dually spacer to the disc and hub backed out, they trashed an inner dust shield. I can see no failed spot welds, is there another piece that is not pictured in the TM or is it a single piece made of two...

    Mystery wire between buss bars

    Found this burned out wire while troubleshooting fusible links. Connects directly between the 24v buss bar and the ground buss bar. Doesn't appear to be a fusible link, maybe a capacitor? I am not great at reading automotive electrical schematics - I couldn't find it. So, what WAS it, what did...

    Rear disc brakes

    I have seen a bunch of threads on the ElDorado rear disc ebrake conversion for the 14bolt, but am looking for something a little different. Unsuccessfully so far. What I would like to do is use the same rotors as the front D60, as well as 2 sets of calipers, so I would have a hydraulic parking...

    Gen 2 mount problems etc

    Does anyone have a picture of the gen 2 mount, without the alternator in place. I just had mine seize and I think the bracket may be bent as the alternator pulley always seemed a little off square. Is there a piece of mount or something else missing? And isn't the idiot light switch on the...

    Rear Spring Swap hints M1008/1028

    Anyone have tips on how to remove/replace the rear springs on a 1008/1028? Specifically how to access the nut on the forward end of the spring? The rest is easy... except for how to lift the new springpacks up by myself (9+K3500 overload+zerorate with K3500 3 leaf helper = almost 180#)...

    Other boost options

    Has anyone tried two smaller turbo's (one per side) to reduce the turbo lag/get boost at lower RPM's? Or a blower - again for lower RPM power? Or a blower/turbo combo (with a wastegate natch)? Also curious as to how hard it is ($$) to safely prep engine for boost over 10 (safely) and where...

    D60 Front Disc Brake Upgrade

    My searching must be using wrong terms.. Looking for info on upgrades to the front D60 discs and calipers, want to mount 40" - 46" tires and increase GCVW to 22000 so I'm sure I will need better than OEM. The rims (16" Hutchinson) have a 15.2" inside diameter which I have to fit upgraded...

    Anyone ever swapped in a ZF S6-650 (from a 2001-2006 GM/Chevy K2500/3500 with the 6.6L Duramax or 1999–2010 Ford Super Duty 250/350/450/550) for the TH400? Any tips? I'm guessing reworked transmission tunnel or a body lift might be needed...

    Gen Light question

    Searched but did not find definitive answer. I read that the two gen lights are actually different bulbs. Presumably with different wattages? Resistance? What is the effect of using the same bulb in both, and what wattages are the G1 and G2 bulbs? In order to fit instruments in the dash I have...

    seat back latch

    looked through the tm,s and searched - the pics show what I have, but there seems no way to assemble the latch on the bench seat to stop it from flipping forward - which I know is wrong. no spring shows up in the tm parts pics, and if assembled as shown the plastic cover prevents access to the...
