upgrades 1982 AS isuzu TD MOHO

Hello, first of all Thanks to Mike Leary with all the helpfull advise, I finally got my 1982 AS MOHO to Anchorage Alaska. Well I have an isuzu Turbo diesel on the AS. This is a 1982 and I am getting weird reading on my gauges come to find out that the Voltage regulator is shorted you could find this out by applying a voltmeter on the any of the electrical connections to ground ,a voltage fluctuation is occuring. I have change all of the gauges including the fuel tank sending unit. I got lucky that when we are redoing the floor there is a cut-out and all I need to do is cut the aluminum sheeting and the fuel sending unit is there. I got a VDO universal FSU sender and gauge from Summit racing. I have also put a radiator electric fan and remove the engine driven radiator fan I have put two of them one in front and one in the back of the radiator.It works well in high altitudes. Be cautious of the alternator belts mine takes a Gates B46 , this is wide belt. NAPA sold me the wrong belt. we are really enjoying this rig.

Hi, Do you know the part number of the belts you used? I can't seem to find a matched pair for my 82

If it's not too much trouble, could you get the full number off the belts, B46 is only part of the part number?
I put some Isuzu belts on last year and got less than 20hrs out of them before they wore out and started slipping, had to adjust the tension several times.

I would like to try belts proven to work on another 1982 280 with turbo diesel.
The number in my owners manual is wrong, when trying to look it up, I have had no luck.
Thanks

Hi, I cant remember the number but Smartstream ordered them for the moho I was working on. He has the exact belts and contact name for you to order. They are a wide set of belts that will fail unless they are correct. Just pm him and Im sure he will help you.

It's not a bad job, once you figure out that you need to jack up one side of the engine to get the belt past the cross member it is easy.

I got belts from Hamilton Engine (503)280-1353, talk to Craig. They are a metric belt so the B46 is close but not an exact fit. It will probably work fine but the belts from Hamilton come in a pack of 2 for about $30. The part no. is 1136711430.

You don't need to jack up the engine to get the belts on. Remove the doghouse top and you can reach the belts. The bottom alternator bolt, the pivot bolt, is a bear. I use a long ratchet with a deep socket from the top in front and helper with an end wrench underneath to hold the nut in back.

Good luck, Dan

Yeah what he said...

and any other question you might have about your rig he knows.... ask him about the "Yellow wire" and you will be in fuse box hell in no time.

Your hooked up now.
