Jeff just put the catch can on. The oil+vapors go in, and the oil gets caught in the steel wool and runs down to the bottom of the can (you periodically drain it from the plug in the bottom) while the vapors come back out and go in the intake. Kind of like the flame trap on the V8 distributor engines.

This little catch can showed up from Buckhorn Imports today along with my repaired seat base.
Thanks!
Putting the can on tonight.
I'll put it where the gas charcoal canister used to live.

I was afraid of that... I think the wiring is hard to get to...

You don't necessarily have to do it at the connector. Just find the wires in the harness further back. You could also just remove the bulb.

What if you pull the "plung-o-cap" out of the washer bottle and rig it? Zip-tie?

Pulled the sump on Saturday; cleaned and resealed with Right Stuff.
Will T told me after 24 hours you can remove the bolts and use 'em for something else...
Added the oil catch can for Crown14 and routed the pcv hoses.
No leaks after 2 days.

I'm defintely pulling the pan if/when the trans or motor has to come out again-look at that access to the flywheel bolts!

I also put a new fan resistor in...this is my third one(not same truck) and I did it a little differently.
The harness of the old one was still ZIP-tied so I could not get it loose.
I cut it right at the old resistor and soldered/shrinkwrapped the AB replacement right there in place.
Not much working space...

What are you RRC guys using as replacement filter material?
I cant remember what this stuff is, but I put it in about 3 or 4 years ago and it still looks great.

Great question on the filter media, it's been on the back of my mind. The vents are different on a 95 and supposedly the earlier filter inserts won't work... but I have not gotten that far yet.

Myself, I would just swap out the entire rear axle housing and spend the time I would have spent drilling that out cleaning, painting and replacing bushings. But that's just me.

LOL -crap

Ive got the hub off now so I can get access from the outside.
I think I can drill the bolt, thread a smaller grade 8 into it, and work it out...

Brake caliper still on; tapped the broken bolt for a smaller bolt...for now.

Got the throttle cable replaced.
Also checked the pcv hosing and can.
After a week there is a small leak at the rear but nothing like it was before...probably the rear seal or crucifixes... which will wait.

Got the front radius arms/rubber bushings replaced.

Now I'm running non-bump radius arms on a former EAS truck...just feels so wrong.

Replaced the rear rubber tri-angles.
Suspension feels much better.

Question for Bill and Joel et al:
What maintenance do you recommend for my LWB rear windows/regs?
Both work, but a little slow...
Also, what's the current status on LWB rear window parts?
Last I heard it was NLA...

Grease up the regulators. The guide channels I use silicone spray. In the older trucks I've seen weak motors cause slow operation but your 93 seems too new for that.

Silicone spray-I've got some of that.

They're not super slow, but it could just be regulator drag.

Are 93-94 rear LWB regulators still out there?
