For those of you that wheel hard, and have a 22RE, what extra parts do you guys usually bring along? What usually fails for you guys on the trail? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

The 22RE is very, very reliable, and I have never had a problem with it on the trail. Now that I've put the whammy on myself, I carry an extra fuel pump and all the associated EFI relays, lots of wire and connectors, fuses, electrical tape, etc. etc. I would like to carry an extra ignitor also, but don't have one at the moment. Speaking of which, does anyone have that write-up on how to convert a GM ignition module to work on the 22RE?

Yeah, thats what i figured. I really havent had any problems either, except for having my power steering pump leak all over my alternator and short it out. Just wondering what everyone else has experienced. A coil and ignitor would be nice to have a spare of, but I dont have one either. I didnt think they went out much (the coil anyway), but a buddie of mines went out when we where down at Jurgens. Took us a hell of a time to finally figure out it was the coil, and then trying to track one down was a bitch. Most people dont carrier spare coils. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Birfs, birfs, birfs.

I also carry spare motor mounts - I have ripped my stock and NWOR mounts apart. For the serious long-way-from-home trips, I take extra knuckles, spindles, steering arm nuts and cones. Also, extra diff plugs and gear dope.

Somebody said spare fuel pump - prolly not a bad idea. 240K miles on mine. Although trail change might be exciting, since its inside the fuel tank. Dropping a tank half or 3/4 full of fuel would be a bitch.

I remember reading somewhere that mod won't work on a 22RE, only on 22R's.

Damn, really? That sucks. If anyone has it or knows where to get it, I'd still like to see it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

this goes along with the coil and ignitor.
i had the electronic pick up in the distributer toast on me before and took the coil with it.
it would work until it got hot then would shit out till it cooled off, luckily for me.

Do a search for ignitor at the ORC BBS 'cuz that's where I saw pics of the mod.

For anybody who lives in the rust zone - the top of the gas tank is a rust trap! I just had to get in there because I had a fuel leak due to a rusty line, and discovered that the screws holding my fuel pump have rusted so bad the heads are round. It's going to be interesting replacing it <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> I sure hope I can take care of it before I have to on the trail!

Vermont toy,

Word. I live in Minnesota one the capitals of rock salt usage!! Just a couple of weeks ago I had an obnoctious gas smell that lingered around my truck whenever I idled or stopped. I looked around and found that the "gas tank sub assembly unit" where the lines come out had rusted trough and formed a pinhole in my gas to carb line.

Went to toyota and got a new sub assembly for $33 <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0"> after tax. Call me cheap but I think thats alot for some cheap ass metal tubing.

Those bolts were rusted round on mine, but nothing a vise grip couldn't take care of. Don't try to chisel them off or grind, both for obvious reasons <IMG SRC="smilies/nuke.gif" border="0"> and if you do you will never ever ever get the rest of the body of the bolt out! Trust me on this one.

Good luck with it, its not to bad. The hardest part was finding the part for my truck... the vin # didn't work in the computor?

later
TJ Christensen
