ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

As they are transmission mounts there isn’t much to feel. However, the clunk i used to hear/feel on acceleration is gone. 👍 :-D

Have you checked the transmission fluid? It’s an easy first thing to check...?

ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

And...SUCCESS!!! They came off the form easily with just a bit of silicon to clean out of the sleeve IMG_3870.jpg The 60A Shore Scale polyurethane seems to have pretty much the same flex as the original rubber so I don't foresee any issues with more vibration. And reinstalled IMG_3871.jpg IMG_3872.j...

ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

This is the polyurethane product I used. The 2lb kit I got was $30 Canadian. Loads cheaper than the $400 for OEM parts. IMG_3862.jpg It's a simple 1:1 ratio to mix and has a 30 minute potlife. IMG_3863.jpg I leveled up my forms and poured IMG_3865.jpg IMG_3866.jpg Now I wait until tomorrow to see ho...

ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

I cut out as much of the old rubber as possible with a utility knife IMG_3851.jpg IMG_3852.jpg and cleaned up the rest with a wire wheel in a drill. The bushings have an outer metal ring around the rubber that can be pressed out of the housing but I left it in in case this all goes south and then I ...

ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

Here we go!... So these are the transmission mount bushings: IMG_3823.jpg IMG_3820.jpg I placed a jack under the transmission to take the weight off the bushings IMG_3825.jpg and removed them. They came out fairly easily. IMG_3827.jpg I measured the position of the sleeves as they are not centered i...

rough cold start

(The voltage is stamped on the plugs. You should be able to read it without removing them...)

rough cold start

Check rockauto.com for plugs. Very good prices, $20/plug. I think I paid.

Is your Deli an L300? Mine are NGK 2161, which are the 6v ones.

4WD Questions

Also... Not unlocking the hubs after 4-wheeling isn't damaging. It just leaves the wheels engaged so the CV joints will keep turning with the wheels. It'll lower your fuel economy marginally and wear the CV joints marginally but not a huge issue. Mine has the permanently locked wheel hubs. I never n...

4WD Questions

This from Growlerbearnz somewhere long ago: -No maximum speed in 4WD 4H. (4L will be limited to 30kmh) -Only use 4WD on slippery surfaces where the front and rear wheels can rotate at different speeds if needed. No dry, grippy pavement! -If the "wheel lock" light is off, only shift from 2H->4H when ...

There is a small knob on mine that adjusts it. I google altitude in my location and just dial that in.
