As far as the overflow for the coolant over flow. I pulled my truck into the shop temp gauge was sitting normal, the laser gauge said it was 212, now at 180 with a real temp gauge verified with the lazer. Stock gauge sits in the same place it did when it wasn't overheating. Rover temp gauges dont work.

Thanks Phil, your post got me to flush the radiator yesterday. Got new coolant in and a turkey temp gauge stuck in the radiator. Drive to work this am (15 miles) and the temp gauge reads 160 after parking for a few minutes.

Found an ECU,

part number: PRC 6999 / 84913 A

Will this work on an 88? Can't tell if it's 13cu or 14 CUX

That think that will work. It is a 1989 so it is a 3.9, but I don't believe they had the code reader until 1990+.

Thanks for the info Ron. Will give it a go and see what happens.

Checked the temp on the way home and it sat at 140. I guess that is good. Don't think I need your new radiator. Not yet anyway. And I don't see any other signs of a head gasket problem. Time will tell.

Ok, so what is this rubber-like wheel thing sticking out the back of my front diff next to the steering damper? Is it to protect the steering rods against rocks? Can't find a reference to it in the manual.

I think it is the harmonic dampener. Not really sure what it does. Mine fell off a long time ago
