Planning to do the "Whitbread" turbo install
Decided to start a new thread about doing a turbo upgrade for the 700 AC Diesel. Will try to track down part numbers and where to find stuff info, if there is still anyone out there crazy enough to do it. I can only say, read Matt's post and I'll try to add anything along the way that might help. Here are a few things that I've already done: Gutted out stock muffler and welded a 2.5" tip. You wouldn't believe how much stuff is inside the stock muffler! Without the turbo, the exhaust is kinda loud, but I like it! Next I installed an Optima Yellow Top D51R battery, you may be able to get an even larger one in that spot= check the picture. Don't forget to strap it down and put dielectric grease on the terminals. Next I turned the fuel screw in and backed it back 1/2 turn, I may turn it back another half turn, we'll see. I installed a pyrometer, see picture. Glad that I did, as I could get the EGT's to over 1200 F, if I ran wot for 1/2-3/4 mile ! That's when I backed her off half a turn! Yes, I'm the old Numasahake before the password meltdown. If the turbo mod proves to be too expensive for me, it won't happen, as I'm the original "Cheap Bastid"
