Re: alternater regulator

Try Ace Auto and Electric on Logan Ave. They have usually given same day service with the alternator rebuilds I've sent there in the past.

Re: trans canada road trip

I haven't been on the forum for a couple weeks, but I did get a text from Delicat yesterday, so I'm probably the Dauphin MB contact. I'm not along the #1, but I've got lots of oil. Might be worth it to detour a bit.

Re: vacuum lines

I can't tell for sure from the pics, but are the other ones boost pressure from the turbo, perhaps for routing to the wastegate, or a boost gauge, or are they in fact vacuum lines?

Re: Home made fender flares?

There is always the "disposable" fender flares. Aka lawn edging. It's cheap, rips off easily in the bush without causing body damage, and would look like a factory option if you have a "getto snorkel" :-D I'm holding out for a set of the factory flares for my l400, but I forsee a getto snorkel and d...

Re: Coolant leak...not the expansion bottle

You won't be able to move the linkage far enough out of the way, but if you remove it, you can do the o-ring in place. It's a bit tricky getting the springs back on the linkage, but much easier than removing the IP. Study the springs and linkages, maybe even take a picture or two to make sure you ge...

Re: Lil' Leak

When it's leaking near the timing belt, it's a gamble. Most play it safe and get it fixed, as a ruined timing belt means a ruined engine. So ya just have to ask yourself "do ya feel lucky punk?" Well do ya? I gotta go watch some old Clint Eastwood movies now.

Re: Coolant leak...not the expansion bottle

It's usually just the o-ring that leaks, once you move the throttle linkages out of the way, there is a snap ring that holds the wax pellet in place, remove the snap ring, pull out the mechanism, and replace the o-ring. (I usually clean up the inside of the chamber with some fine emery to make sure ...

Re: AC charge weight

Run your vacuum, then as filling, you will see bubbles, or a "milky" look. As you slowly fill it, the glass will get darker and darker(less bubbles) when the bubbles are gone, your full. Easy peasy. I don't know why they had to complicate things with charge weights. In the good old days, when the sy...

There is a sight glass on the receiver dryer that you can use to gauge how much refrigerant you need.

Re: Injectors

Didn't go out and pull a lifter yet this morning, but I did take a look through my service manual, and I am indeed wrong. There are 37 different thickness' of shims in .025mm increments, ranging from 2.250mm-3.150mm. A good reminder for me not to always assume that I have been given the correct info...

Hwy 6 & perimeter

Saw a nice l300 as I left Winnipeg today, around 5pm. Was parked in the stock pile yard at the jct of Hwy 6 and the perimeter hwy. Big orange 4X4 on the side, some kind of box liner on the roof, crystal lite. Maybe Sooperandy?

Re: Voltage regulator part number

Yes, the regulator is internal. If your still in Saskatoon, shoot James (firesong) a pm. He had a shop there rebuild one of his, and he may even have a spare kicking around.

Re: Turbo Waste-gate Replacement

Yes, as Yojimbo said, changing them is easy, getting your hands in there can sometimes be tricky. The ones I have installed, have a threaded portion on the rod, that is used to set the correct boost pressure by either lengthening or shortening the rod length. which ever style you get, if you don't h...
