  1. To anyone reading this post ..the ground refreshing seems like a lot.. however once you do it you thru the process of elimination you under stand the remix system better and you learn what area of the system is giving issue.. I never held a volt ohm meter till this project came along ..once you read what cruiser 54 says about what numbers your looking for you simply read the meteres instructions and select the proper values of the range you want to read..the math is simple and it saves hundreds of dollars..thank you cruiser and everyone with knowledge of the renix
  2. That is the truck you guys have helped me get going correctly..I will start a build thread now since the power plant it stabilized ...she is a 89 4.0 I only paid $650 for her..
  3. I live in walton co ga ..I do not need emissions so there for I guess out goes the cat..Once again thanks for the info it is very welcome in my little lab aka my garage
  4. I am ordering new cat, o2,map censor and replacing muffler..The tps still had consistant voltage and held it thru the opening and closing of the throttle range..So as soon as my parts show up i will install and give an update...Thank you guys for all the important info Not to sound to new to renix ..but what is a IAT censor?
  5. Well I must say if it started and idled fine...You my friend are a step ahead in the renix idle issue world..Good luck bro
  6. ok all renix reground and ohm testing complete ...The truck runs very smooth with a small variation in idle..How much effect will a hole in muffler effect the overall run of the engine...The reason I ask is while standing in front of the truck it sounds amazing but if you go to the rear and listen to exhaust ryhthm there is seemingly a miss
  7. Ok so I just completed the ground check..The system shows a stable 00.6 even while wiggiling the harness next to the valve cover. The truck is a 89 so theres no c101. i am going to check map censor and replace the slightly deformed vacum hose..Thank you for the help I'm new to renix and I must say it is a odd kind of nightmare :wall:
  8. I did not ohm test it ..I only volt tested and adjusted ..however after reading what you just wrote I went and inspected the vacum tube from map sensor..there is a small melted spot directly above the engine ground that I did replace ..I will get that vacuum hose replaced and hope that works..I will do a ground test before I even attempt to refire.. Thank you for the wisdom
  9. I did the ground test..on my a pin its 4.90 on the c pin I adjusted it to .88..that got me very close to my 17 overall goal..however it still runs verrrry rich
  10. Hmmmm may be I should adapt your theory ..close eyes and tighten screws lol..I'm getting ither a high smooth idle or a rough rich low idle no matter how I crunch the numbers
  11. Thanks cruiser ..glad to see you came back..I just down loaded and printed your write up..great stuff bro..
  12. I'm volt testing my tps sensor wire a is at 4.89 wire c is at .71 after dividing them I arrive at .14...the desired ratio I think is .17 am I close enough or shall I adjust the tps
  13. Thank you very much I will get it ordered..
  14. Thank you very much. I have a 2 wheel drive 4.0..
  15. I called my local Napa about a new speedo cable.. The gentleman asked if I needed a 67 inch or 89 inch cable..I have a 89 pioneer not really sure why there is two lengths and can anyone one tell me the length I need to order Thank you
  16. I'm chasing gremlins behind the dash of my 89 pioneer.. Sooooo I seen your floor work looks very nice...that is my new next step.
  17. We bought and she came with western vintage wheels.. I'm trying to figure out how to restore them
  18. I did find metal bucket light sockets that would fit at my local parts store.. The lights work perfect now ..thank you guys for the knowledge
  19. Check engine ground wire.. And make sure your brake system is not leaking fluid behind the fuse block
  20. Thank you guys... I am on the hunt for light sockets..I will keep you posted
