Finally installing my 85 617.952 into my 84 4runner, using a kit I bought from Joe Peterson back in 2016. Have the engine in, now hooking up peripherals. My goal is to have it pass Kali smog refs, then be smog exempt, so I will be using all of the 1985 Kali-smog stuff on the motor for now. Will post pix and updates in the future, hopefully it all goes well and I help out some fellow smog state inmates😀🙏
Here's my truck. It's taken many years to build, but is shaping up to be really good: 1991 Jeep Comanche 1983 Mercedes OM617 7.5mm M Pump T3/4 Hybrid turbo (For now) 4.10 Gears Ford 8.8 rear axle with limited slip, & C clip eliminator D-30 up front with Aussie locker & manual hubs (This was a mistake, the diesel snapped the hubs like twigs, hopefully D44 soon) Converted to - raised - flatbed with 15 gallon auxiliary fuel tank, rear mount battery & smallish trunk / storage area. 32X12.5X15 Doomsday OM617 to AX15 adapter Doomsday thermostat housing Doomsday EGR delete This is what it looked like when purchased: Here's what it looks like today:
If there is anything someone would like to see please let me know, i have many pictures & videos.
