Diesel all go.

Just a gloat.

After a four month strip down and cleanup, gearbox swap etc, my rig is back on the road. The Isuzu 4BD1T had never had full fuel delivery due to a worn out aneroid on the fuel pump.

Now it's downright silly.
Spins the back wheels on damp tarmac in second gear (1:1 LT230, 3.54 gears), passes everything uphill and spins all four on gravel in third which pulls up to 80km/h. I'm having to run 19psi boost to keep EGT's under control, an intercooler is next on the list.

Shame everything gets in the way in a LHD truck, but if one of you guys grey market imported a RHD one and found an old Isuzu NPR your head gasket issues would be over forever.
