It is time for the first oil change on the truck. Standard SD33T with a canister filter. I found a few threads here and there about finding the correct filter and what to do once you've got it. I…Continue

SD-33T and T-19 For Sale

Unfortunately I've had to swap in a Cummins 4BT. I live in the Denver area now and found myself needing more grunt to make it to the trails up in the Rockies. The engine recently passed smog here in Colorado but had developed oil in the coolant shortly before I swapped it out. I never bothered tracking down the problem because I had already started gathering parts for the swap. Other than the leak the engine ran great and I used it as a daily driver for a while.The T-19 was professionally…See More

I figured that this, combined with the old filter setup would be plenty.Of course the old filter is different, with different o-rings.

About Me:
I'm a high school art teacher trying to finish up my first project truck. I am the proud (and sometimes reluctant) owner of a 1980 Scout II Turbo Diesel that is one month younger than I am. I want this to be a trail ready daily-driver that commutes a few times a week. I have to admit that since moving to Denver, I've had to swap to a Cummins 4BT. The little SD-33T just wasn't up for the Rocky Mountains.
