Fri Aug 26, 2016 8:24 pm by mickB
Well this weekend sees the mazda rx8 wheels hopefully being fitted so I want to drop it too, can others who have done it tell me what amount of drop I will get with winding the nuts down on the torsion bar, on a vw t4 10mm on the locking bolts will equate to 25mm at the wheel, is this similar on the SC, also what drop will I get cutting 1 coil out of the rear spring to

When to change torsion bars and leaf springs
Sun Sep 17, 2017 10:49 am by nieldavis
Hi everyone

I've recently acquired my first Hi-Ace. Hurrah! 1993, 2.8 3L, LH-129, part-time 4WD.

I like it, but it wallows like a hippo corners and bounces like a pogo stick over uneven ground . I know this van was not built to be a racing snake but my gut feeling is that it's time to bite the bullet and start replacing stuff. 93,000 miles, 24 years old after all.

I'm starting with replacing …

Disabling a door sensor
Thu Sep 21, 2017 4:53 am by Chesco
Hi everyone,

I'm having a problem on my Super Custom regarding the passenger door sensor.
The passenger is very slightly bent at the spot that is normally pressing the door sensor and turning off the "open door" red light on the dashboard.
Therefore, the light never turns off on the dash board (it also lights the spot where you insert the key near the steering wheel) and it slowly drains the …

Fuse boxes
Sun Sep 17, 2017 10:38 pm by jen's car
Still on the topic of fuse boxes - last post i can find is 8 years ago - i've got one i think under the steering wheel close to the middle of the car but how on earth do you open it? It's a long black thing marked A. I can find no way to open it - hoping moon roof is not closing due to that rather than tearing roof apart.

Help: need advice for a cooling sytem issue on 1KZ-TE
Thu Sep 14, 2017 10:03 am by Chesco
Hi everyone!

I would like to know your opinion regarding a problem I'm facing on the cooling system in my Super Custom 1994, the engine is the 3.0L Turbo Diesel (1KZ-TE).

It all started a few weeks ago when I noticed the coolant level was getting low too quickly.
I'm travelling around New Zealand with my Super Custom so driving hundreds of km per week.
I brought the van in a garage, a pressure …

Anyone know of a mid '90s 4x4 being broken in the UK?
Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:02 pm by WGWarburton
      I'm having problems finding a replacement rear axle for my '94 4WD Hiace. There's a discussion in the "I need" section and I have a temporary fix in place, thanks to the help I've already received there. I may need to try to get it welded up if I can't find a replacement but I fear that will only be a slightly more temporary fix, and a much more expensive one, too...!

If anyone knows …
