Re: Tail light "fillers"

Grant was the only maker of the filler panels for the Astros.
When he closed up shop last year nobody picked them up.

At this point the only metal filler pieces available are for the door handles and locks.

I am looking for the tail light and license plate fillers if anybody finds them again.

Re: 1985 Lund OEM fiberglass ground trim

I am interested in all 4 pieces but having a hard time picturing them.
Is that 2 pieces right side, and 2 pieces left side?
Could you get a picture of all of them laid out?

Could you get a quote for UPS Ground or US Postal shipping to 48854?
U-Haul might have a box big enough for all 4 pieces.

Have you pulled the control panel in the dash and checked to make sure the vacuum connections are still attached?

Re: 15" Chevy 6-Lug on a 2004 Chevy Astro?

15" wheels will not clear the rear brake calipers. That was the reason for going to the 16" wheel on the 03-05

Re: 2005 AWD brake overhaul...

The lock washers are called tinnerman nuts. Used in the manufacturing process so the axle can be shipped with the rotors installed. They are not used for anything after that and can be discarded.

Re: Brocken plastic vacuum line where is the termination?

There should be a second control valve along with that 6 way valve to control the rear heat.

Re: Junkyard normal...what do you do?

The dutch door can be open by removing the inside handle and sliding the linkage lever to the side.
The barn door can be opened by removing the interior cover and reaching in to twist the linkage lever.

Conversion vans will have them also. They did not remove them before adding those glass running boards.

About 45 minutes away for me. That puts you roughly in my neck of the woods. We will have to get together sometime.
Let me know if you need help doing that cladding.

Re: Sourcing Trim Behind Front Wheels 2002 Safari

MI_Ghost, I'll check with him and see if he still has his parts! As far as my steps and cladding go, they're in perfect shape. When I end up doing this I'll keep you in mind. Assuming you're in MI, then? Me too. Yep, Capitol City area. If you are any where near Howell go talk to Ed at Regal Auto Pa...

Re: 2002 Astro Stealth Build With Some Mechanical Issues...

I guess what I'm really wondering... Is could this problem truly be as simple as switching a few old pulleys, switching a belt (which doesn't look too bad, but does have micro-cracks in it), and deglazing the one slightly glazed looking pulley, OR am I just kidding myself and really just need to ei...

Re: 17" Wheels 2003 AWD Safari

I've been thinking about replacing the stock 15x6.5 wheels on my van to American Racing Torq Thrust 17x8 wheels (VN3097873). According to their website, these should fit, but I'm not so sure if there might be too much backspacing to clear stuff. Here are the specs: Diameter: 17" Width: 8"...

Re: Sourcing Trim Behind Front Wheels 2002 Safari

I believe 1lowcab just did the cladding delete on his van. You might check with him. Getting the replacement plastics will be easy enough. The problem you are going to run into is the metal retainer strips. They are just cheap sheet metal that rots away and are very expensive to replace. If you can ...

Re: 2002 Astro Stealth Build With Some Mechanical Issues...

The tensioner and idler pulleys should be nearly silent when spun. Sounding like old skate wheels means the bearings are well on their way to a permanent retirement. Change them both and be good for years to come. Compared to the cost of towing it is cheap insurance.

Re: Taking the Camper to New Lengths

700' of 3/4" pvc is gonna cost you over 2 grand before tax. True. That was a comparison number. It should not take anywhere near that amount of pipe. The basic shell could be made of less than 100 ft of pipe. I need to work it up in sketchup to determine the amount of pipe and fittings that wi...

Re: 2002 Astro Stealth Build With Some Mechanical Issues...

Both brakes and steering are based off hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. What you describe is the power steering/hydro-boost system loosing pressure at low rpms. Combined with the belt/pulley squeak/squeal is sounds like you have a bad tensioner allowing the belt to slip at low rpms. ...
