Yeah, thanks for the great information on nitty gritty differences

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Finished installing the '91 tach cluster in my '89 today. Ended up tweaking the speedo calibration a little after test-driving it. Everything appears to be working correctly. I did the rearranging of the cluster connector pins without cutting a slot in the dash like the guide said to do, but it took a lot of extra time to do it that way.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with the 99. Sometimes it runs bad and I'm getting codes P0339 and P0341, crankshaft sensor and camshaft sensor. I'm better with OBDI than I am with OBDII. They're not the same codes I got when the cam sensor was out of sync with the crank sensor.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I fixed the check engine light to help with diagnosis, so I can see when the computer is triggered. I stole the bulb from the security light spot since that one always stays on and annoys me. I defeated the security system a while back.

Replaced the floor mat with one that has no holes or rips in it that I found at the wrecking yard for $6

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Checked the power and ground to the crankshaft sensor, that was good. Didn't check the signal yet. Thinking about pulling the timing cover and inspecting the reluctor wheel and timing chain. The sensor looks like it has been contacting the wheel and there's an oil leak in the front anyways.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I bought and installed a new battery. Last winter I noticed it cranked slower when it was cold in the morning. I figured a new battery was on the horizon. But it kept on cranking. When the cold weather came around this year, same thing. It's been a mild winter with only two very cold snaps. Last week was one and it almost didn't start.
On a warmer morning since, it just wouldn't crank fast enough. Hooked up the charger. I had to hook the charger up again yesterday morning when it wasn't very cold. Last evening I needed to go to town and it was dead after sitting a few hours. I put it on the charger early so I could do what I could last evening. I tried to start it an hour or so after charging and it was about dead. Charged it a while again and it managed to fire up, so I hustled into town, now for a battery as well. I was worried it didn't have enough charge but I made it. Put the new one in hoping I was correct that it was obviously the battery, since I had shut it off. Fired right up like it hasn't in a couple years. I hope this new battery is as good as that old one. Date written on top was 9/12/13!

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I had the same issue on my DD since I have owned it. When it got cold it was slow but always fire until we got the super cold (for us anyway) single digit temps. Got it started Christmas eve, went and got new battery. mine was dated 10/15.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Some turn up better than others. This was a Car Quest battery. Nothing special. I bought the Suburban in late Dec '14. so it was a little more than a year old then.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Wow, I didn't think you had the Burb quite that long. Seemed like only couple years ago. Oh well, there's that old thing creeping in again.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Time has become a fooler for me. It seemed like I only had the Suburban a couple few years until I realized I've actually had it quite a few couple years . I keep thinking of '15 as being about 5 years ago but now it's heading for almost 10 (just past 8).

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I'm working on my cubby plate, made from galvanized sheet metal. I'm mounting my power mirror switch there, which is a style that didn't come in these trucks.

I should have let the paint dry longer but I rushed it together.

Thanks. Now that space is actually useful. I might add power port there later too.

I've put 120k on it since I bought it. It's at 240k now. I put the 6 month old tires from my '92 on it, went through a new set, and on a set I bought a year ago. The dual exhaust I had run on it when I got it is shot. I was a young man when I bought it and now I'm old . I've had friends who bought new cars back then already replace them. Not too shabby for $3k. Who says the Suburbans aren't economy cars??

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

I fixed a fuel leak on the 93. One of the fuel line o-rings was bad.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Replaced a bunch of brake line clips and cable anchors that were broken or missing. The main engine harness was routed incorrectly and drooping very close to the exhaust manifold.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor on my mother's 89. Also changed the oil. While working on it I found a water leak. Freeze plug behind the starter.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

They gave me a bad freeze plug, it pushed right in with my finger. I got one from elsewhere and thought I was finished, then I noticed the harmonic balancer wobbling around. I have a used one but will have to get a new seal tomorrow.

Re: What did you do to your truck today??

Here's a better picture of the balancer. You can see the outer ring is off center, and compared to the other one it has shifted. So I'll have to check the timing again once I get the "new" one on.
