    Yeah I've got the Drums all around, that I rebuilt a couple yrs. ago!
    Past post!
    I'm wondering if your unit has had a fair amount of work done to it, and maybe that's what's throwing you off!
    Possibly rebuilt from another vehicle, or several!

    Yeah at some point it was probably owned by a company as it has the propane conversion and also had a maintenance meter in it
    Previous owner stated it was a 94 off one of the axles not sure how that was determined

    I just got myself aHijet 1985 S80LP and man is it ever hard to find parts or even to figure out anything on these trucks as mine was jury rigged to hell with cut wires missing vacuum lines and so I need a schematic and vacuum diagram. I have found some but most seem to be on later models. Replaced the carb but the only vacuum line I have hooked up is the advance from the distributor, also I beleive the spark plugs are obsolete and are ngk bpr6ek ?or possibly ngk 7131. Can anyone help a brother out here

    I own a S81lp. 24,901 miles- drove it 5 today. Still has 10 inch wheels. Beat to snot by country club and the cemetery maintenance Co. That owned it. Have 4 high un locked and 4 speeds. I use it around yard and to run to town. Ebay carb working well. Found and modified some inner and outer tie rod ends. Speed limiter gone(went away with old carb) re wired plastic circuit board on cluster to make all gauges and warning lamps work. Found and cut down a v-6 Nissan maxima dip stick. Mine was gone. Needs a right front axle joint and control arm. Ball joint good but I had to straighten control arm. Would like to replace timing belt, hoses, brakes and adjust valves. Pushed up to 45 mph (per GPS, speedo only goes to 25 mph) . I like 30 to 35 better. I'm 6'3" and don't want to become part of vehicle if I crash or hit deer.

    I have a S80LP 1992. Previous owner jacked up the vacuum lines. Can someone please upload a picture of what the 2 wheel drive carburetor vacuum lines look like? All I find online are the 4x4 carb pics with 10x the number of vacuum lines.

    Only one extra line comes of the engine for 4wd/difflock, its by the brake booster line. It is still a black line in this image, as it was before I replaced them.

    Top left is distributor, top middle is the valve cover.

    Bottom left goes to the thermo valve for the hot air intake. Bottom right go to a solenoid under the seat, and come back.
