received a phone call earlier this week, pinion and crown look good, pinion needs a speedi-sleeve (okay, but it wasn't leaking....?)
10~14 days turnaround...the first phone call he said he looked for 4 hours and came up empty handed...I started laughing and said ''welcome to the world of isuzu''

he called back, said he found a kit, would be about $400 all in....good enough for me. I hate dealing with gears...
and I found a box with what i think are diff bearings for the trooper, and diff tube seals...dammit

still no word from the gear shop about the diff.

but some plastic clips showed up in the mail, those goofy clips that hold the grille in, besides the two lower screws....I bought 20 of them, for both troopers- a whopping $4 8)

I stopped by the driveline shop today, he had a bearing kit for a 10 bolt on his counter, but both him and I knew it was wrong...sure, if I needed to rebuild the front...but I don't.

he found a source for the crush sleeve and pinion seal, and is waiting to hear back from their bearing supplier about those damn metric bearings....the numbers are good, but actually sourcing them is the issue....and apparently finding a pinion nut is an issue, as well....I told them if needed just use Loctite and torque it then re-stake the old nut...we both have no issue with that.

hurry up and wait.

this says for Toyota Landcruiser diff. LOOKS the same, but I don't want to order it, and it be all wrong.

jerry is also looking into what he can find for bearings. my local shop called me yesterday, no luck whatsoever thru their suppliers for bearings....its been apart over a month now. I might have to slap the rear axles into the tubes, install the brakes, remove the rear driveshaft, lock the hubs and drive it off the hoist

picked up the 3rd member today, in different pieces in a box.... took it down to the trooper, and set the parts on the hoist beside the other rear diff parts.
made contact with jerry, he is looking into new bearings for it.

looks like i'm not going back to work next week, I talked to my boss and he said march 23- holy crap almost another month! I was hoping to start working again on march 2nd- I have been laid off since dec. 20.... looks like there isn't much construction work going on right now, all the guys usually come back april 1st, but he thinks it might be the 2nd or 3rd week in april for actual work start-up...but for these guys to work, I need to be done repairing any equipment that is needed, as well as getting all the trucks inspected and repaired...oh well...

slapped all the used bearings and races into the chunk, and started putting the rear diff together...I do need it moved off of the boss's hoist at work, before I start actually work...first tuck in is a f450 that needs ball-joints...
cleared the rust blockage in the diff vent pipe, removed & cleaned the diff vent valve, new hose and clamps for that.

installed rear chunk to housing (rtv to seal it) tq nuts and bolts, then install axles, tq bolts. that was yesterday.
ordered 2 rear pinion seals yesterday, they are supposed to show up later this morning.
will go back to town, to finish it off.

jerry is on the lookout for all new bearings and what-not.

well, slapped the brakes and tires on it, installed new pinion seal and oil, and drove it home. not as noisy as before, but still a noticeable howl, only there on accel / continuous load, no noise when throttle is let off.

I put the additive in for limited slip diffs, did the ''figure 8'' procedure a few times to mix the oil, but its still really ''chatters'' when making turns. the other trooper does not do this. maybe the locker is shot. it still ''locks'' , but really, how good is it after 350,xxx miles?

new muffler is SUPER silent, a few times when I came to a stop, I thought the motor died- its that silent at idle now.

DID I MENTION I F$%^ING HATE THESE PARKING DRUM BRAKES ? and the fsm isn't very well detailed, either.

still, the higher mileage trooper pulls harder and leaves the other trooper behind...
only difference is one has a k&n air filter, and the slower one does not. hmmm...

my bad- it was almost 1,000 km round trip.
some issues with the cruise- it worked great for most of the trip, but then it would not engage.....on they way back it worked flawlessly.?wtf
did not use any oil or coolant.
but -long cranking to start when shut down hot. started fine after it sat for 2 hrs.
needs an oil change, already put 5,000 km on it!
Good to see another identical AB trooper being well taken care of at such a high mileage! I am planning a long road trip in mine out to Vancouver Island and back, so it's great to see you have the conrfidence in it to take it on a 1000km trip. keep that puppy going, she deserves the long life!

Did you ever resolve the long crank when hot starting issue? I'm thinking the cause may be the anti drainback valve in the fuel pump. Mine does the same thing

a vehicle can be perfectly maintained, and the most random part will fail...ha ha

i did a road trip last year ( winter thru the rockies ! ) with my kids, pulling a small trailer, out to a kelowna pick a part and back, no real issues- used a liter of oil for the entire trip there and back...

its hit and miss with the starting issue. i was thinking of installing a check valve down by the fuel filter, just to see if it makes a difference...i know the fuel pump wiring has been messed with.

i know where there is a '92, the body is in decent shape, but it has some other issues...and the owner wants too much for it.

added engine oil. topped up the coolant overflow tank. drove it. at about 130 km/h the rear diff gets almost silent.....ha ha
can hear the rad gurgle a bit, might need a different rad cap again. thats where the sound is coming from.

gas is cheap right now- $29 for 60 liters. nice. cant ( not supposed to) travel anywhere .

the rear diff made some really nasty chattering today going around corners- you could feel it in the floor

one of these days it will explode on the highway going 70 MPH
and then i will have a front wheel drive suv

done nothing to it, havent driven it much since this stupid covid. no work, nowhere to go. oil change due soon, will swap to20w50, see if that slows down the oil use, or wrecks the motor. meh. this pos is not worth fixing the oil burning issues. i am really hoping the rear diff explodes so it gives me the excuse to park it for good.

damn thing wont die. ordered 4 new shocks, $12 each on closeout from rockauto, my rancho 9000 xs are all shot, not even a year, no off roading-overpriced garbage
will check over the whole front end, i am sure it needs work. cheap new parts dont last worth a chit.

Your trooper is a real demonstration of their durability. I bet that rear diff will keep going for a while yet!
Too bad parts availability is so low for the G80. Would a rebuild even be possible with jerry parts?

installed the new shocks i just got from r.a.
finally got around to building and installing the heavy duty tie rods, as well as replacing the drag link from side to side. the drag link had play in it, one outer tie rod had play, and the other side inner tie rod had play. cheap ebay parts, all replaced with moog parts. the shocks i replaced were not cheap, but they just didnt last. i will NEVER buy rancho shocks again.

there may be some play in the universal joint at the steering box....now that the other parts are new, i can check that joint easier. steering box needs replacing, but thats $500 ish extra i dont have right now.
no play in the ball-joints that i can see. but i do have moogs to go in there , if needed.

added a liter of engine oil. added coolant to the rad- it doesnt seem to want to suck out of the recovery tank... :roll:

will go in for a wheel align in the next few weeks.

got tired of replacing led '''bulbs'' in the main interior lamp, so i installed a 4'' round surface mount led interior lamp, wired into the oem wiring. works with the door switch, and the oem ceiling lamp switch. much better .
