Congratulations on your new addiction! That first trip is a memorable adventure. Hopefully not too memorable. We are in Boulder CO. If your route takes you this way give a shout.

I'm very impressed....Wife travels from California to Tennessee, closes the deal on a sweet 310 and decides, what the hey, has the Kahuna's to drive a new to her, 30+ old queen back to California where anything and everything could go wrong.
On top of that, manages to catch a small tranny leak and knows where to take it to get looked at?????? You wife seriously rocks This does bring up the question as to who wears the pants in the family;but seriously....definitely a keeper.

My wife would have looked at me holding aircraft tickets and said where's Tennessee???? and you want me to do what?????? Give her credit though, she has driven the Mistress, although my heart couldn't take too much of that.

Welcome to the Isuzu diesel nut house
Cheers
Tony

the drive continues

Well, thanks for all the welcome messages!
Very encouraging. And yes, my wife rocks!
She had a great driving day, hopefully getting into Amarillo for tonite.

She got fuel in Shamrock TX and got back on the road. Then noticed the oil pressure gauge showing... nothing. She pulled off and checked the oil which she said looked fine. Double checked, then called me. If the dipstick shows a good level, we're guessing a bad gauge or send unit, so she pressed on.
She'll take it to a shop in Amarillo, Saturday morning.
*whew!*

All good except my oil pressure gauge. Seeking help tomorrow. So done for tonight. Good night.

I have had an oil pressure gauge show zero three times in my life; twice due to bad sending units and once due to a bolt coming loose on the oil cooler on my brand spanking new 88 Silverado. I luckily happen to see the needle bounce twice before hitting bottom, clutched in, turned the engine off and coast to the next town. Needless to say I didn't need to get oil rustproofing done that year as the oil was everywhere under the truck.
All three managed to get the pumper going right quick though.

PS The gauge to watch closely also is the temp gauge as these motors hate running hot.

All the best on your new journey.
Cheers
Tony

517 miles today. Out of New Mexico, all of Arizona and into California. Slow going up the hills. I may have watched the gauges too closely... It feels good to be in Cali. Spending my first night in a rest stop. The Desert Oasis outside Barstow CA. So tired and ready to be home. 404 miles to get home tomorrow. I can not wait to take this out with my family and start testing and using all the systems.

So far I have learned some quirks like how to make the drivers seat sit up for an hour or two and how to close the door properly.

Oh, 14.5 mph. I like that.
