Great idea on the fold-down tray for your stove! Sorry to see a failed rotor (third time, you say?), ouch (knocks on wood).

I suspect the ignitor box as its the likely suspect. found one used 100 $ ouch but if thats the cost of keeping her alive so be it :oops:


Is that the ignitor under the intake on the itec system? If so I should have one as I removed all that stuff when I did the Weber conversion on mine.

Just caught up on your thread, Lots of progress there and glad she is running good. What type of grouse, same ruffled ones we get into down here in VA, or the sharptail ones we shoot in the Dakotas. I'm guessing sharptail. Diamond plate on the rear doors looks good.

not running so good right now :roll: .. actually its not running at all . all signs point to ignitor box but i have managed to source 1. we get 5 types of grouse up here but this is a ruffed grouse , the most common . im always hoping to find Blues as they are much bigger. My brothers here right now so hes getting a few ideas as to what i need for material for my projects. hes gonna build me a new gun locker and make it so it can flat pack then i can weld here. along with matrial for a new front and rear bumper, and il grab spare check plate for armor plating the insides of this thing !!! :D :twisted:

If its leaking from under the cap the internal seals may be tricky to find down. In my case it was coming from where the dizzy fits in the block. 30 cents and 10 minutes later mine was fixed!

Postby PPCLI-JIM » Sat Dec 10, 2016 7:55 pm

so i have decided on a set of driving lights bought off Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/KAWELL-Flood-Beam ... ed+bar+18w as im tired of getting blinded by truckers who have their rigs lit up like the TAJ MAHAL and i got a relay to wire them in . while I do know my way around a set of wire crimpers its the first time to install one of these things. so I called my friend up whos a journeyman electrician and had him explain it to me. after a few minutes he sent a video link to me ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAeKTli ... ture=share so from there i played with my little battery jump box and got the basic wireing connections figured out . But it does look like the electrical gods sneezed right now

Could you do me a big favor and post Jerry's comments on how to make the CV joint replacement easier? I am planning on pulling mine soon to repack everything.

IF REPLACING THE WHOLE AXLE ASSY YES , THE INNER CUP IS HELD IN PLACE BUY THE FRAME BRACKETS, IF THE INNER CUPS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE USUALLY A NEW BOOT AND A CLEANED UP BALL AND SPER COLLAR INSIDE THAT SOUP C AN AND WILL TAKE CARE OF ANY NOISE .

i ended up dropping the front diff to allow access to it along with pulling the pitman arm to gain just a bit more clearance . BUT i replaced the entire assy, as the set i bought were a 3 ball set vice the six ball set that was in the rodeo. I will be attacking the pass side tomorrow so I will take more pics you will need some big wrenches to do this if your doing the entire axle. 22 mm hold the diff up and they are not captive bolts/ nuts either so you have to hold them while turning. on the backside of the drop plate are 2 c clips and a bearing which make pulling the plate a requirement if replacing it all. i have no idea why Isuzu did it this way vs the way everyone else did it where they can be removed rather more easy.

One set done one set to go but I do have a light set (Cdn tire specials) also that I could use up front IF I had to. This here is 2 chains and no I'm not leaving them here as there are too many light fingered individuals around my place. but i was checking the fit . i had to take 3 links off one side as these were made from a set of rig chains

Thanks a bunch.
I have repacked the CV joints once, replaced the boots with the mecatech boots, then took it all back out again to regear, but always looking for an easier way.
I didn't drop the front differential when I repacked everything, but I obviously had to for the regear.
I am not looking forward to it, that is for sure...

I hope you have better luck with the factory carb than I did! The throttle shaft on mine had 1/8" of play.
The carbs are just so much simpler than the early fuel injection IMO

it was nice to have the pit when doing this upgrade. for everyones info theres 4 clips holding the grill on the top to get to the bottom ones you have to pul the bumper which is held on by 4 17 mm headed bolts. then theres 4 more clips and 1 screw hided in the dark portion of the grill center low.

When I removed mine, I used a long, thin flat blade screwdriver to reach in and push the bottom clips. My bumper bolts all were seized and broke the welded nuts loose, and at the time I didnt want to mess with it. Ive had the grill off my Rodeo probably 5 or 6 times
