  1. Good job on getting it back together. I had to do a head job on my old 95 and it was a nightmare just like yours. Never could get those coolant lines behind the intake to go on properly. We had to do the heads in mine since we timed it wrong so it bent all 6 intake valves. this whole top end is a nightmare. Tell you what though when you get it done and it runs it feels amazing and good to know you got it done.

  2. According to Rock auto there are indeed two different racks with different part numbers. Theres an SE model and a LE XE model. What the difference is I'm not sure but by looking at them but it looks like maybe where the steering shaft attaches is different is the only thing. The taller one is the LE, XE rack. and the other is the SE

    That does sound more like it's probably the cluster, but yeah, check the circuit first if you can. Keep at it, sounds like you're closing in on the problem. Also, you may be one of very few people who've seen a WD21 speedo read 100!

    I've had mine on the freeway doing that speed. Definitely not fun way too scary and very all over the place.?

    Good work getting the engine back together! Fourth is overdrive.

    Thanks. My first time ever having taken an engine down that far. So I'm thinking my transmission has either dropped a gear or it's damaged internally some other way. Its hitting the correct shift points from d1-d3. But she's still really high on the rpms going freeway speeds. Also is there any difference in the trans itself from a 2wd model to a 4wd model? Also hopefully this link will work. These are the pics of my Speedo doing freeway speeds with and without overdrive on. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2018109721601775&id=100002083014107

  5. So have her rebuilt and had her fired up today. But she was really rough and died as I tried to take her around the front of my shop. Now she just sits and cranks. I'm going to do a pressure test and then see if she's getting spark and fuel and go from there. I'll keep trying to post as I go along. Thanks everyone for the help!

  6. Been a while since my last post. But got a huge update on the pathy. Finally had some time to strip out a cylinder head. Come to find out... You guessed it bent the intake valves shoved them right into the head. So now I'm going to be pulling the other head and will be replacing both heads. I want to thank everyone who has helped with their input in this. I'm hoping before the new year the old girl will be back on the road!

  7. We're gonna take the intake off to get to the valves for 2,4,6 so we can time the old girl right. Now my big question is if we line it up at TDC will it automatically be starting Compression cycle or no? Like i've said this is my first time so im trying to wrap my head around all of this. I've also been told that the distributor timing is different from the cam shaft timing.

  8. so i now have a new issue with it. Took off the timing belt to change the water pump and thermostat. Now we cant get the marks on the timing gears and the marks on the back plate of the timing cover to line up with anything we do. She keeps sounding like shes on exhaust stroke every way we adjust it (As in we I mean me and a buddy whos turned wrench for 30 years). We're starting to get frustrated with this issue. Any Ideas guys? Oh and Slartibartfast the thermostat had frozen so i think thats why she was overheating like she was.

  9. so the ecu isnt bringing back a code. I push in the o/d button and it revs my rpms up by around 250 rpm. so if im doing 65 on the freeway at 3500 rpm and i kick in od it goes up to 3750 and its also causing mine to overheat. Im almost scared to take it on the freeway because im afraid of blowing the motor out of it
