Hum.... Pull the rear driveshaft on the D-90, drive it over your utility trailer (to use it as a dolly) and drive the 110 to Arlington.
If I had read that earlier I would not have driving the D-90 in the rain with the bimini top this morning..... Well..... Live and learn.... First time the top is fitted to the truck (I "kinda" forgot that I had bought it and that was "nicely" mentioned to me two weeks ago.....). At least, now I know I should roll it and always have it in the back of the truck.
See you all tonight!

Glad you are coming Loic.

In case I've had a brain fart, is there anything I'm supposed to be bringing besides a 110, money for Tony, and a hollow leg to accommodate the free beers and hors d'œuvres bozman will be filling me up with?

Seat chunks must be for someone else, but you are also bringing my TPS. Hell, bring any gadgets off the engine that might be causing my stalling/fuel issue on my D90 please

You done with the press? i could use that too.

Yeah, bring all the spare parts you don't need specially "armor type" parts and I'll "store" them for you!

Actually, if someone has a pair of rear trailing arm they want to get rid off I'm interested (I'd like to make a sleeved pair in my "spare" time). I saw a pair for $30 I think (+ shipping; Charles probably remembers the vendor website's).

Seat chunks are for Dave if he's coming -- Dave? Is the TPS going to work? Do you have a serpentine belted 3.9 or a regular 4.0 (I can't remember). What're your symptoms?

I *think* I'm done with the press -- I'll check.

I have a serpentine belted 3.9. She'll randomly start running really rough (rich) and if you don't keep giving it throttle it will cut out. Right as this happens I hear a relay click. If I press on by giving it skinny pedal, or wait a moment (maybe up to a minute) if it had stalled, then the relay clicks and she's back to normal. I may still have ground issues, and have replaced the VSS. Throws a code 44 every now and again. I swapped 02 sensors but will put the others back as they looked better visually.


Loic, I have replaced my rear trailing arms. They are slightly bent, but you can have the old ones.

well, well, well... the verdict is......... OUT OF GAS! I guess my fuel guage decided to stop working. Thanks for all the help and, yes, you may all laugh, chuckle or make fun of me any way you wish. It will be fully accepted.

What time does the happy hour usually end. I have a pretty busy day ahead of me at the restaurant and I wont be done till 7-7:30 and can probably make it there by 8-8:30 and just wanted to make sure you all will still be there.

I appreciate all the help and look forward to tonight.

Charles, have you tried swapping out your fuel pump relay?

No i haven't, mainly because it runs rich when this happens, and if the fuel pump relay was cutting out, wouldn't it run lean? That and it will take some effort to figure out which one it is. My relays under the passenger footwell are just dangling there so not sure which is which offhand. I'll certainly try it though.

Right now I'm trying to taunt her into behaving. She's sitting out in the rain without the full top, and I've stolen parts off her for Janey which means no doors either. She knows Janey is in the garage. If that doesn't get her head straight, were going to have a heart to heart. LOL.

Bad news guys. My daughters godfather is in town at the last minute and wants to come see us (hasn't seen her in 3 years). I will have to see you on the next one. We should all do a trip to GW national forest before winter?


Bozman - you have mail

How do you know it's running rich? Did you verify that at the O2 sensor side? Or at the smell on the exhaust side?
A lot of people seem to be reporting leaking injectors these days.... Did you put any cleaner or ATF in your gas tank recently? If not, this might be an easy one (and cheap) to try.

Exhaust smell indicating fuel leaking down to the cats, black smoke. Have not tried any additives but use the highest octane. I guess I can try that. I have bought new injector plugs and plan to install those at some point to ensure I have good connections there.

So this could be a bad ignition as well. You have a distributor right? When is the last time you replaced the coil? [Or it could be another bad ground thingy....]
BTW, the TPS can very easily be tested with an ohmmeter. I remember reading that it can develop a "flat spot". But that does not seem to be what you described.

Yeah the TPS is me clutching at straws. Pendy is going to kick my ass if I don't replace my ground cable to the battery and clean the rest again, so I will try do that this weekend and it wouldn't surprise me if thats the issue. I have a new coil somewhere and the wiring to it could be considered suspect so I guess I'll address that too. The plan is invest some sweat equity into Janey, but I guess I need to get the D90 reliable first. But I have my radiator in now, so the plan was to get Janey inspected and then put the D90 into the garage for some TLC - radiator, oil and power steering lines.

umm, well it came with the engine (you have my old one) so I assume original. But it's in the stock location, not relocated.

So I don't know what's wrong, but if you want to lend me things like that and the stepper motor, whatever else, I can at least try things without throwing money at it. Already did that with the VSS.

I can bring the tps, but the ignition module is somehting you should just go ahead and replace -- it's a known weak component and when mine went caused unending wierd drivability issues. STC1856 is your friend

You didn't miss much, Greg refused to by us beers as he'd promised . . . though he did bring "product" to try to sell us. kinda shady, really.


Great time, good to see the regulars and to meet you Anthony and Jonathan. Charles, I'll let you share your experiences of the evening.
