    Flashers Do Not Always Flash

    @SirRobyn0 That generally was what I thought. Today was much cooler and the flashers worked on the 45 minute drive to work. I am going to skip the test and just get a flasher that is good with LED bulbs, because eventually I want to switch all the "little" bulbs out to LED

    Dome Light Comes on with Headlights

    I suspect that the answer will be "check your grounds." I'm not looking forward to that. Dome light works as it should - open the door and the light comes on (original switches stick a bit, but his the button once or twice and on they come.) I just noticed that when I turn one the headlights...

    Flashers Do Not Always Flash

    My flashers don't always flash. When I first got the truck, they worked fine, but over time they got more problematic. More likely than not, they will flash at the begining of the first trip of the day and then at some point, the turn signal lights will light, but not flash. I don't know if...

    Driver side window removal.

    Swear words and the uncomfortable feeling that you may drop the window at any time. I have power windows, but I think the procedure is roughly the same. Roll the window down and remove the rear track from inside the door and the felt trim all around. I removed the wing window - this might not...

    How to achieve tighter steering?

    I am going to Borgeson route - its not quite $300. Its cheaper (I think) and less work than crossover steering. The Jeep intermediate shaft is probably cheaper but I don't have a pick and pull or any good yards near me. Check out this video for the shaft and steering bearing replacement:

    What have you done to your square lately??

    This took a week, but I mostly finished today: New interior except for the dash. Hit a snag last week when i could not get one of the seat bolts back in. Fought with it for an hour and said screw it. Today the seat came out, again, and I pretty much just put it back in and it lined up...

    Can't Get Driver's Inner Fender Back In

    Also, I'm not sure how securely attached the inner fender is to the outer - there might be a lot of flopping around as you try to maneuver the unit.

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    Fixed: Repair shop replaced a faulty overload switch. Technically a DIY job but I would not have been able to identify it except by just throwing parts at it. Plus it would have required disassembling the motor and I didn't trust my ability to get it back together

    What new tools have you got lately?

    I thought this was a joke when I first saw it

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    All replies seem to be pointing to a bad motor. I'll have to contact the repair shop and see what my options are

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    The motor turns pretty easily by hand. And smoothly too. I doubt it's a bad beating because there's no bearing squeal and generally the motor is quiet

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    "Pereira" relief valve = pressure relief valve, that's some autocorrect madness. So, I called a local electric motor repair shop to see about testing the capacitors (I don't have a proper multimeter for that) and he said that it wouldn't be them and to check the amperage to the motor. I didn't...

    Windshield Wiper Fuse Location

    @SirRobyn0 - I started noticing that. The couple of places that had one listed showed them backordered or with no availability. I'm a German car guy and one thing I love about them is I can go to the dealer and get a 40 year old part (Drip rail trim from a 1969 BMW 1602 - one week to the...

    Windshield Wiper Fuse Location

    So today I had time and broke out the multimeter and the manual. Turns out I have high but not low speed, and the diagnosis flow chart says that it is a pump issue - most likely dislodged low speed brushes. Recommendation is to replace/repair the pump. I'm going to be looking for an AC Delco...

    Windshield Wiper Fuse Location

    @SirRobyn0 thanks. Fuse was good time to check grounds and power this weekend

    Windshield Wiper Fuse Location

    Thanks. I know where the fuse panel is, but can't find a fuse for it. And I got tired of looking at it half upside-down. I am going for low hanging fruit first fuses, then grounds, then the multimeter comes out for chatting circuits

    Windshield Wiper Fuse Location

    I quick google search turned up a lot of info on how to change the motor but nothing about a fuse location. Truck is an '84 K10 and the wipers just stopped mid-sweep the other day. Before I toss a new wiper motor at it, I would like to check the simple things but I can't find the fuse location...

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    I thought I had this with the Pereira relief valve. Disconnected the pipe from the head to the tank and the compressor ran for about ten minutes and it sounded faster, but then it tripped the overload switch. But this time the compressor motor got hot. Not too hot too touch, but not...

    Interior Insulation

    I use a similar Noico product over a sound deadening mat. The cab is noticably cooler from exhaust and engine heat and I think much quieter (I haven't put the carpet back yet)

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    Now my line of thinking is that the centrifugal switch is stuck on so that the primary windings (starting windings?) are overheating. Now I just have to locate that switch and figure out how to test it.

    Ls Swap Checklist

    I'm planning on a very similar swap, except I'll have a 4l60e instead of the 4l80. What are you planning for fuel? I would like to keep my dual tank set up, so I think i need to change the switch and the fuel selector valve from an '87. My tanks are brand new so I might go with the holley...

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    Sorry I'm slow in responding, although I would like this fixed, I have other things that are more urgent. I checked both power leads and get 125 and 122 on them. That is with a multimeter connecting the leads to the ground screw. The compressor worked last year although I only used it a...

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    The tests for the switches didn't make sense to me so I replaced the pressure switch and the results were the same.

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    @Vbb199 - thanks. I go slow with electricity but I'm mostly OK with simple checks and fixes.

    Compressor overload keeps tripping

    How would I do that?
