Hello friends,

I have a YN57R, I believe you call these Bakkies over in SA, but mine is the 2wd model (terrible I know, I'd love a 4wd chassis to put my body on). I am having never-ending problems with my carbureted 3Y engine.. New leads, spark plugs, distributor rotor and cap. Carburetor cleaned out, new gaskets and plunger from E-bay. Anti-dieseling solenoid cleaned with fine grit sandpaper, lubricated with WD-40 and hardwired to the ignition to bypass the emissions control box. Spayed all around the motor with engine degreaser with no signs of a vacuum leak. Yet it still refuses to idle properly :frustrated:

I have a few questions for the forum; Is the idle air/fuel mixture screw supposed to be wiggly? It is on both my carburetors, perhaps both of them are stuffed..? :surrender:

2nd; Will a R151 auto transmission fit inside my gearbox tunnel? Is it hard to convert a 4wd auto transmission to a 2wd transmission? I'm contemplating putting a 1KZT-E 3.0 turbo diesel engine, or perhaps a 3RZ-E 2.7 petrol in my pickup. I have a feeling the 3rze and the gearbox will be closer to bolting up than the 1KZ. :surrender:

Any feedback appreciated... Thanks from New Zealand :thumbup:

Hi Jez

What Dizzy you got? Old type contacts and condenser or new type Elec Ignition. Did you test the coils?

Hi Louis,

I have the new type, magnetic pickup. I haven't been able to find a coil on my truck. I was actually wondering how they work? I'm assuming the distributor produces the spark, as it's only got 4 leads out, not the usual 1 in 4 out. My knowledge lies mostly with older diesel engines.

Thanks

Ok

Measure the coil ohms to specification. Your coil will be part of the dizzy itself. Will be on the backside of the dizzy.
