  3. Well I have one of those frustrating electrical problems, All of my dash gauges stopped working. I had been working on the horn button, got it working (contacts just needed cleaning). Went for a short ride and noted that none of my dash gauges were working. The smaller gauges light up when I turn the key on but go out when the engine is started, I have checked all fuses in the two boxes and all are good. I am assuming that I am not getting any power to the dash gauges but am at a loss as where to look next. I am sure with all the expertise that we have on this forum that someone can point me in the right direction to solve this problem. Dpostma
  4. all gauges guit working, T2

    Rocmoc, your absolutely right as usual, Problem solved. What I did was to remove the horn thinking perhaps it was a horn problem. Well there are two wires that connect to then horn mounting bracket, one of which goes to ground and the other to the instruments. I initially did not connect the wires back up and that was the problem. Seems to me to be a funky way to ground the instrument cluster via a bolt holding the horn. Thanks rocmoc and for those reading this thread FYI, and who would have thunk it! Dpostma, Pearblossom CA

  10. mods to my T2

    Just made some changes to my T2 to make it more functional, (at least to me) I relocated the spare tire, moved the head lights, and lowered the roof rack. Hopefully the three photos that I attached will appear. OK photos are not being displayed, can some one PM me and explain how to get my photos on the post? dpostma Pearblossom CA

  17. What are you doing to get ready?

    Yea, Camp Fenner & Devils Punch Bowl are just south of me about 4 miles. Camp Fenner now belongs to the state, it's a Cal Youth Authority. Sorry you can't make it maybe I'll see you some other time. Dick
  18. What are you doing to get ready?

    I havent been watching the weather for that part of the country but hope it will be good for the Jamboree. Planning on being there on the 22nd. Need to get to work getting the T2 ready, I have spent a lot of time building a ramp system for my F150 to carry the T2. Tried to load it yesterday but found that my 3K winch just did not do the job so rather than spend more time working on it I will just trailer the toy. The ramp system required putting some old used street tires on to reduce the width so that it would fit thru the tailgait, still a pretty tiite fitt so will have to make some mods. Looking forward to checking out all the mods that you guys have done. Dick Postma Pearblossom, CA
  19. T2 Alternator

    Does anyone have an aftermarket source for the T2 alternator, my friend has a 08 and it has gone belly up. Checked the forum search area and did not find any info. He took it to a auto parts store that checks alternator but they were unable to test it. I have the 09 model and have changed the fan belt because of a squeling noise but now wondering if it could be the alternator.
  20. Fuel Controller

    Just wondering, has anyone checked the spark plugs after a hard work out? That would tell us if it is running overly rich and just wasing fuel. Dick
  21. Extra Parts and Pieces

    Not sure if this is the place to post this information, but I found it quite useful. I was trying to find some auto rims that fit the Joyner and came accross this site: http://www.roadkillcustoms.com/hot-rods-rat-rods/Wheel-Bolt-Pattern-Cross-Reference-Database.asp?LugCount=5&StudSpreadInch=4.5&StudSpreadMM I was looking for rims with a 4/114MM or 4.5inch bolt patten, I found several wheels that would work. The site has other useful information. Hope y'all find it as informative as I did. Dick
  22. head light bulbs

    I have also been looking for a high/low beam bulb but can not find one. You can get a single filiment bulb and plug it into the high or low beam wire as there are three wires, high, low, and ground. By doing that, all you have is a driving light and not a head light. I may get a new headlight can that will accept a H4 Bulb. Dick
  23. Transfer case for Trooper

    There was somebody out there 1-2 years ago making a higher 5th gear, not sure if it was No limits or maybe Silverbullet. We need maybe two more teeth in 5th and maybe 1 more in 1st. I would like to do 55 at 4K rpm Dick
  24. Fuel Controller

    Stopped by Rick,s last Thur and picked up a controler. Took about 30 min to install, bigest problem that I had was figering out how to disconnect the oxygen sensors. The little blk tab needs to be lifted (not depressed) to disconnect. It starts fine and seems to run clean but as yet I have not taken it out. I put a UMP air filter on and will post some Pic if some one can PM me and tell me how to do it. Dick

    Gumball, I have recently put an amatuer radio, Yaesue FTM-10R, in my buggy. It is a great radio that has a waterproff detachable head, AM,FM, line in jack, and VHf & UHF. It is made for our application. Although it is a ham radio it can be modified to trans on the commercial bands. I just adapted a Rugged Radio headset w/mic (aviation quality) and PTT in the earmuff to the radio. Every thing is working good, talking to by buddies over 30 miles away on simplex,(no repeaters). Another option is a radio called Black Box which is VHF only and is imported with freqs 137MZ to 174MZ. A freind of mine, Bill McMaclay is selling those at [email protected] or 909 276 7004. I am a firm believer in radios, it has come in very useful on rides with my buddies. Dick
