    Reply to So are these shagged?
    by seivad
    Cant resist weighing in on this. Had a vibration that was related to engine revs. Round 2000 revs. Replaced the mount that is under discussion with a genuine Mitsu part - made no difference at all, and it soon looked shagged. Also had the tail shaft...

    You guys have sorted out the main points. Here is what I found : The wiring is usually in place - MB seems to have used a common harness all through, and its easy to plug into. The diff control unit is mounted near the pump in some models, but on the...

    In my diagram for 94, there is a fuse in the engine bay for the power windows. Its in the middle bank, the second of the two pink ones - 30 amps each - above a vacant unused one. Cant see that they would change it for later models.

    I have a diagram of the "Rotation Sensor" located in the side of the Injector pump. Looks like it is on the end of a short lead that plugs into the harness.

    Reply to Water Trap Sender??
    by seivad
    As far as I know, that screw in bit activates the warning light that indicates water in the fuel filter. Its an ON /OF switch. The tacho must be fed with a signal that is linked to the revs of the engine.

    by seivad
    I run the tyre size you mention on my NL diesel, GLX model. B F Goodrich ATs. No detectable change in economy, and the speedo reads closer to the correct value according to the GPS. The tyres are on after-market steel rims, perform well and look goo...

    Reply to suspension seats (bracket) for 95
    by seivad
    I obtained a set of suspension seats intending to retro fit to an NL. The seat squabs bolt onto the top of the suspension mechanism, while standard seats go all the way down to the floor runners. The runners are the same for both kinds of seat. Have...

    Reply to washing the seats
    by seivad
    I was advised by an upholsterer NOT to wash any covers that had been removed because they may shrink unevenly and be difficult to refit. Also, if you pressure wash get the drying done as quickly as possible as some of the steel wires in the seat base...

    Reply to Front speakers
    by seivad
    Some interesting tricks in this sequence. I did what Lava did to my NL GLX by sourcing two of the original plastic speaker mounts from the front door of a wreaked GLS (or Exceed?) and then found leads tucked away already in the door cavity. Forgot to...

    Reply to has anyone got a pic of the fuel pump relay?
    by seivad
    I cant find a picture in the manuals, and I cant produce one as I have a diesel, but all indications in manuals are that the engine control relay (that is also connected to the pump) is located high up on the passenger side above the kickplate, and about...

    Reply to Original PTO Winch
    by seivad
    It is rather specific, but it fitted an 87 TD, though it came from an 85 Td, so there is a bit of lee way. Can you give me a lead to the net URL, I am interested in following up on what's there.

    The bush was made by Clarke Automotive in Asquith, a suburb of Sydney. Phone (02) 9476 5800 Fax 9476 5485. Any competent machinist should be able to do it once you get the old bush(s) out to act as a guide.

    Its a thought. The original bush was manufactured out of a long flat steel rectangle with two diagonal grooves machined into it. It was then bent into a cylinder and locked in place by a kind of dovetailing, welded, and then tidied up. White metal was...

    I am located in Sydney, which could be a problem for you. I would like $300 all up. Its a bit risky to assume it will fit the petrol, but if its an older 4 cylinder it just might. I had my NF long wheel base all set to go, re-locating the catalytic...

    The bush is located in the rear of the extension housing, which is at the end of the transmission assembly, bolted onto the transfer case. The sleeve yoke attached to the rear propellor shaft slides into it. This is on a manual transmission, the NL diesels...

    It took some time to do, so I was told - cost about $200, but difficult to be precise as it was included in other costs.
