Re: ABS light on/off
Juice I think you were right on once again. I've only driven it the last couple of days but it seems to be running smoother and the abs light hasn't come on yet. I dropped the rear diff cover this weekend and put new oil in it. My truck is acouple hundred miles away from 80k and I never did change the diff oil so I'm glad I did it. I don't know about the first 60k though, that was before I got it but it looked pretty clean so I'm thinking it was. Acouple things though. First I only bought two quarts of gear oil. Put both of them in and when I stuck my finger in there I didn't get any. Was this enough or should I go buy another quart. I'm thinking I probably should. The second is I worked really hard on finding the right gasket for it, two days and 5 different parts shops. Then as I was putting it together I was reading my haynes and they say that you don't use a gasket, just make one with rtv. I had put so much effort getting the right gasket though that I didn't care what the stupid book said and was putting it in there anyway. Bad move or extra protection?
Third have any of you with a 93 up ever tested you abs light. In the haynes it tells you to put a jumper wire between slot e and slot b for 5 seconds after startup and the abs light will start flashing out codes, only problem is it doesn't tell you which one they are. If I remember right there are four wires in that diagnostic port. A black, white, white with light blue, and black with light blue. I was just going to guess the two with light blue but was talked out of frying my abs system. Anyone know which are the right ports?
I couldn't get my front hubs off to check though. Not a problem since I think I fixed it just with the rear. But definitely want to be able to take them off in the future and was wondering how you guys with 95/6 do them. Do you have a socket for them. For those that don't know my 96 has a completely different nut then the rest of the years. Can't use the socket with the four teeth cause its just a big nut. So have any of you guys found the right socket for it and if so where and what size? Also when I get them off I want to put some timken bearings in there based on a recommendation I read on a post here. Anyone have an opinion on these? I haven't been able to find them at any parts stores, have to go to a place that sells industrial bearings.
