• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

84 diesel suburban


84 6.2 l diesel suburban. Currently doesn't start, solenoid stuck on starter and has air leak someplace in fuel line to fuel injection pump. Body is straight, smog exempt. T400 that's been rebuilt, stock hydroboost set up. Has tow package, gov. Bomb locker. $500 in fremont, CA. They're doing a street sealing in a couple of weeks, so its got to be gone by then.



Put a new starter in and tightened some fuel lines, goes to cash for clunkers Wednesday for $1000, will hate to see her go. Lots of fond memories, camping trips with the kids in the old beast. It's a slug, but it always got there and back at 17mpg. It'll sure feel good getting the additional 700 bucks that I just mailed to the franchise tax board back though.
