In Topic: fuel pressure issues again

23 July 2017 - 10:03 PM

I would check the diaphragm inside the isolator to make sure it is pushed to the fuel side of the can.  It is not unheard of for a tiny leak on the gauge side to let it go far enough over that it will not read correctly.  You can use the eraser end of a pencil to put a little pressure on it to move it where it belongs.  Unfortunately you have to drain it to do that and I found that to be a real pain although Eric had some way of doing it that was easier than what I did.  Can't recall how it was done but I would call him to find out.  Personally I hate those things and have mine plumbed directly to the gauge with a small valve turned tight enough to not let the needle bounce.  Just the way I did mine which many do not care for.

Yes,  but the master kit came from dtt and had the exact same parts that was coming out of the trans.  It wasn't the parts that failed either it was how they were installed.


Russ, I also would have stayed and watched Jon build mine, but had to head home. He will have it done on Tuesday and ready to go.   I watched  Bill from dtt build mine back in 2006.


It's quite an education isn't it?  Some guys don't like someone looking over their shoulder but Jon said he enjoyed my company and we actually have become friends.  He is pretty easy going from my perspective and when we were chatting throughout the day it really took me back to some of my time with Tony as he talked pretty much the same tranny language.

I highly recommend Jon.  He should do you right.  He is actually east of Spokane in Newman lake.  I was fortunate enough to meet and work a bit for Tony Garcin of Dunrite.  At some point we were going to do the trans in my '01 but he contracted cancer and was quite sick and eventually succumbed to it.  I not only lost my tranny help but a very good friend as well.  Eventually it got so I had to git er done and in trying to pick someone I saw Jon helped some guys on a couple of the forums and really seemed on top of it.  We had some private messages and finally called and chatted with him to satisfy myself he could be the one to do mine.  He really had the right answers so I set a date to show up.  He was kind enough to let me look over his shoulder and we also chatted as Tony and I used to do.  It was very much like chatting with Tony and while he did many things the same as Tony he also had his own ways of accomplishing some of the same thing.  I knew from Tony there was more than one way to do some things and so was good with it.  Since the '01 got hit and totaled after about 5,000 miles it was replaced with an '02 and I had Jon build that one also.  Was happy with both of them.
