Re: That's a Wrap

I need to do something to my van, but I first need to find a space tall enough to fit the damn Van into. It sucked doing the Roof with all the trees around my house dropping crap on it! PVC pipes and tarps make a quick temporary enclosure. A DIY garage that can be taken down and stored when not nee...

Re: 2001 RWD Safari Van

MI_Ghost, Thank you sir, I understand. Will go grab those brackets. I wasn't concerned about them before, we don't use the van as passenger anymore, but I want my work to be well and complete, thanks for pointing that out. Ok, I see the frame stops in your pic. once you get the 4th bracket and the ...

Re: 2001 RWD Safari Van

Hi MI_Ghost Was under the van today, got the front three brackets, each side. Left the two rear brackets. There are threaded bolt holes for the second to last hanger but the access hole was not punched, it's just raised to identify. The actual rear most location is threaded and good to use. I will ...

Re: Overheating in Death Valley, please help

I'll just drop this little bug here. If you have a radiator shop that replaces cores. This will give you a radiator twice the thickness of the stock radiator. You will need to use the Astro tanks though. 92-99 C-1500 RADIATOR. Radiator Part Number: 52491623 ; 21372 RADIATOR,(CORE SIZE 28 1/4IN X 17 ...

Re: 2001 RWD Safari Van

I had to leave the rear most hanger, it was holding up the van, besides I would have had to do some cutting and weld nuts and we know I don't do that yet. In my opinion they are overkill, nothing else has hangers that far back. Those thin brackets were dropped on the 03-05 models also. No issue wit...

Re: Taking the Camper to New Lengths

Been brainstorming an idea. You guys tell me if i'm nuts or not. A pvc pipe frame with foam core insulation covered in fiberglass. Still need to research the structural capacities of the pvc pipe. Possibly lighter but will it be strong enough? A very rough guess makes the plywood unit weight approx ...

Glad to hear you made it home without a tow. If the engine is still good and it probably is, here is a link to flushing. I really like the three day flush. I wiped out an old sump pump but it really works. http://www.sancarlosradiator.com/VoltageDrop/flush.htm A very good source. I recommend readin...

Re: upgrade 2004 base model with 2002 power locks

It would be an undertaking but the door shells are the same so all mounting points are the same and the wiring harness interchange shows being the same for 2000-2005. You could conceivably transfer the parts from the 02 to the 04. It will not be a simple matter of pulling parts out of one door and p...

Re: Where do these vacuum lines go?

The T fitting has a check valve built into it. This allows vacuum to be pulled in one direction only. The way it is now it is pulling against the backside of the valve closing off that port. With vacuum applied to check valve port you will get a vacuum signal to the other two ports. Once you get pas...

This may be an after thought as he is probably already on the road.
Try not to drive in the midday heat. Hard to cool things down with hot air.
Evening to early morning would be best.
