1989 LE350, 12 valve, 2WD. Auto., questions.

Just picked this up.

The data is missing from the drivers door frame weight sticker, What would the weight ratings be for the front axle and the rear axle? Questions they ask when looking for parts.

My 1977 W150 had a build sheet behind the glove box, would a 1989 truck have a build sheet somewhere? I pulled the glove box and none in there.

There is no detent whatsoever when you move the transm. shift lever, out of park. Would I assume the ball and spring on the valvebody shift lever within the tranny be missing? Meaning I will have to pull out the valvebody to fix?

Did an 1989 have a fan shroud? I see no signs of one on this truck.

Suggestions for a Tack?

The air intake rubber pipe from the air filter to the turbo is cracked just behind where it connects to the turbo, buy it new if available or has someone made up something that will work?

Thank You!

There may be a build list under the front edge of the hood on the driver's side. It will list mostly drivetrain parts. The valve body will have to be dropped to fix detent. It had a shroud when it left the factory. Best option for tach would be one that runs off the alternator. These either run off of magnets strapped outside of the alternator case, or can get a signal from the diodes internally. If it still has the original style turbo, the intake tube is 1989-early 1991 only. The turbo inlet is smaller. Either find one from someone parting one out, or make up a custom one using elbows, a reducer and a tube.

The cummins D250's sticker should read 3830# front and 5450# rear. (What my '90 says)

Most of the parts I buy on rockauto (that fit) are listed as for the 4000# front and 9000# rear.

When I was using a 89 motor and wiring in my crewcab I used a magnetic tach pickup system off the harmonic balancer, worked great with an Isspro tach made for that system.
