    dedicated to only one Hijet model.

    my journey in the ressurection of this gem...

    Carburetor was covered in the new carburetor thread......

    once running it blew out coolant all over the top of the engine. A small 3/8 in water line from the water pump , with plastic elbow failed....

    pulled the broken hose, it routed to the intake manifold at a tee fitting and to the wax choke, the 90 elbow was a black plastic and crumbled. The tee was white nylon plastic. removing the alternator and egr valve to accomplish. Interesting to note, line from water pump routes up and over the intake manifold and back down under the manifold, feeding back to the tee connection and out and up to the wax choke.... Makes an intentional air trap higher than the radiator...

    trip to tractor supply... nylon plastic barb fittings, will do a boil test for heat resitance. a 65 mile trip.. any place with metal fittings would be another 60 miles out.....
    When I bought this it was a mechanics shop. I was told it ran, and would need the gas tank cleaned, their suggestion.... the fuel looked like lemonade. Cleaned it out and removed all three ports. Messy with fibers , The intake sump sock was rotted away. left a white residue that can be wiped out.

    Finally back at the truck. Removed radiator , a chore that actually required removal of the center counsel accy. The manual has numerous parts removal that say remove the counsel as part of the steps. No rhyme or reason..... Wish I knew how old the timing belt is. Seems a little slacked and loose. Also give me easy access to the mechanical controls for front wheel drive actuator.

    Lou,
    I didn't have to remove my ctr. counsel, but while I was in there with the rad. out, I figured the heck with it, I replaced my timing belt. When I did get to the timing belt, it looked ok, but I knew it had some age to it, so I just played it safe! Instead of having to go back in there in the near future. That's just me!

    limestone,
    I will look at the cavity and posit a way it could have been removed without console removal. It was my plan to post pictures to document the journey. but I cannot post any more. upload a file button will not launch a upload file box selection popup. ???????

    Lou,
    On my S81LP, I don't think I have that! I'm off today so I'll take a look to verify! On the bottom of your signature, it says no brakes! I'm hopin you have them by now! LOL:) I have been lax with my pics, I do plan on trying to improve in that area. STAY SAFE!

    I took a fresh look to refresh why I took the console out. The driver side open to bottom is blocked by the AC plumbing. Not ready to compromise that untill I know it is a non functional boat anchor. HAA......
    This a lot less work compared to last years spring project , a 1973 Ford 44oo Backhoe......

    yeah the brakes are a no go. Saving for after it actually moves, the hills are steep and may prove useful upon ocasion.

    Is it the idle bump up for the AC?

    Okay, that's the difference. I don't have ac! I haven't been on a ford 4400 or 4500 hoe in yrs. Back then they were open ROPS (cab)! We used to freeze our comaseguams off! lol:eek: Well 2 yrs. ago when my friend gave me this thing. After I knew it would run, and I felt everything was working on it somewhat. I re did the brakes first! Stopping has always been pretty important to me! Heck, I got enough aches and pains!!! lol! I don't see that vacuum switch on mine. Must be on the later yrs. Don't know.

    When i was a kid, I spent part of a summer on a logging crew felling trees. We were working on a ridge, with the road, and landing below us. The skidder operator came back up the hill and told the owner that the brakes were bad on the skidder, and they had a bout a ten minute screaming match, and the owner got on to show him it was perfectly safe.

    Brakes went about half way down, and the owner got crushed by the load.

    Brakes are important. It probably may not be wise to spend a bunch of money on the brakes until the engine runs, but once you know the thing will run, brakes are the first priority.

    My thoughts exactly! Sooner or later in life, "We'll all need them"!

    Switch is mounted on the air filter, no connection to same....
    Hose attached is #22 traces back to thermal flange of carburetor , So a direct vacuum draw.

    could this be a vent for the gas tank??? This is the one unattached vent line I have.. It is about 2 foot in front of this switch and was plugged with a bolt. The vac hose is too short to route back and doesnt make sense, without something else missing.

    hopping someone with same vehicle can shed light on this loose end.

    more parts removed. Timing belt and gears look new , belt is not worn and is tight in cogs of gears. But I would like to replace the cover. It is broken and has a hole that 1997 Diahatsu S110P EF-GS__20200329_141005.jpg 1997 Diahatsu S110P EF-GS__20200329_141342.jpg was duct taped over. This needs to be tight to prevent dirt from collecting around the moving parts of the timing gear set.

    Lou,
    My belt looked good, until I removed it, then I was able to really inspect it and I found many aged, fissures,(small cracks), hidden, (and kinda hard to see), starting to show there face!(so to speak) I got educated yrs. ago on different fan belts and the such, by an old timer, and then I since read, on the Dayco web site, they don't recomend twisting and turning belts to inspect them! I just figured while I was in there to replace the timing belt, just cause it's a pain to get to, as far as removing all the pulleys and covers, etccc....! I did the same thing, speaking of timing belt covers, I was able to seal it up pretty good, on re install! I agree on keeping all that dirt and debris out of there! I hope you can find another cover! Some parts are hard to find! I wouldn't get rid of that one in case you have to rejuvinate that one! Good Luck!
