Steering Rack and Pipes 91 L300

Hi, looking for a steering rack for an L300. It can be leaky, but the shafts need to be free of pitting. Also really need the 2 pipes that run to the Power Steering pump. Will pay for shipping or pick up on Vancouver Island.

Re: mystery loud sound from front of engine

Hi. You might have sorted this out, but one thing to watch is the rear most exhaust manifold bolts. They tend to shake loose and a little leak can sound like a worse issue. Not really sure what 'type' of sound you're hearing. Anyway, your post didn't get much attention. :) Cheers. A worse issue woul...

Desperately Searching for MB351600 - power steering pipe

Hi. I'm desperately trying to locate this part MB351600. It's the 'pressure' line coming off of the steering rack. I had 3 vans and it was seized on 2 of them. I had to use the one good one on a van that I recently sold. I've checked everywhere including Amayama which has a delivery date of Dec, 31 ...

Re: Battery Killer

Hi, I meant to post this sooner, the issue was the voltage regulator. Most likely, as I replace the whole alt with a spare and all is well. Thanks for all the feedback.

Battery Killer

Hi, thanks for the tip. I was wondering about that, but I would have thought that the symptoms would be a little different. This was a catastrophic end to 2 batteries over a period of like a month. Dead, no recharging. Battery was fully charged in the morning for a drive (a week or 2 after the first...

Battery Killer

Okay, I've found that this is the AC lead, which was unplugged for a reason. I am still interested in the location of the sense wire. Sad story is that this van was one day away from landing on a new owner. :(

Battery Killer

Hi. I've hunted around the forum a bit and I think I'm close. However, I always appreciate the group insight. I've killed 2 batteries. Stone cold dead. Driving fine for a couple of weeks, glow system good. No issues. Come home. Park. Check the van. .04v on the battery. The latest was a nice AGM. Fro...

rough cold start

HI! Before I crank out a new thread, thought i'd 'zombie' this one. :) Did this work? I'm guessing by the lack of replies that it might have. I am experiencing the same/similar issue. Only when cold, lots of white, bad misfiring. Just completed the EGR delete and brand new injector nozzles. Reduced ...

Infernal Squeaking from under the chassis

I had a similar sound a few weeks ago. Got out my trust grease gun and hit all the nipples (especially the ones on the front suspension). No more squeak! *** NOTE: just do ONE squeeze of the grease gun per nipple or you can blow out the rubber covers!!! *** NippleGreasing.jpg It takes a bit of sleu...

Infernal Squeaking from under the chassis

I hope someone out there might know this one. It's a head scratcher. There is a squeaking that comes from under the chassis. It sounds like a rubber bushing moving inside a carrier or something. It's not constant but squeals like rubbing on movement, like over bumps, turning the wheels at a stand st...

To Sleeve or Not to Sleeve? Replacing Cylinder Liners on a 4d56td Rebuild

Sorry to basically hijack your build thread, but what is the concern about machining the crankshaft, is a milled crank that is not "re-nitrided" going to fail spectacularly? Totally helpful addition to this thread. I mangled my keyway so I have to buy a new crank when it finally comes out. But I'm ...
