Re: Which OEM projectors for Astro Headlights

IMO, the HID 'upgrades' in stock lenses suck. I think the best solution is to use the rectangular 'cargo' headlight grille with a quality aftermarket lens/housing.

Lighting is complicated, have a good read here https://jalopnik.com/why-most-led-headl ... 1843070472

Re: B-window to gull wing

But that's not a window :) Acrylic would be nice, haven't looked at the price of that kit yet. Have you looked at the Acrylic RV windows that are available from Dometic and such yet? They offer a really wide range of windows with many different options(tints/screens/shades/double layer), might have ...

Re: LU3 to LV3 Swap

It's based on the LS engines, so there might be a little bit of work needed to fit in there because of the oil pan. There are standalone harnesses available and more more power + less weight is a bonus. Would also need to check how everything else would function together. Sounds like a great project...

Re: Return Hose from reservoir to pump

I was updating my post as you were replying, that nipple at the bottom(the one that goes down to the pump) measured at 15mm, so 5/8 for that hose.

Re: Return Hose from reservoir to pump

RA lists the ACdelco part as 5/8 ID https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=983876 Basically 16mm or really, really, really close, really.

Re: 2003 GMC Safari Brakes

Damn, that system is going to need more than just that one hose, look at the steel line in that last picture. Looks like it needs a really good cleaning/flush, some new lines, fresh fluid and a proper bleed.

Re: Replacement jack

I think the stock jack is fine most of the time. I did have one fail on me while changing a rear tire once, however I don't know if it was abused before I got it. I never noticed any signs of stress before it's failure. Fortunately I was in a WM parking lot, because they wouldn't mount a different s...

Re: ***SOS*** real axles don’t fit?

How did they get that center block in there to begin with if it can't be removed? By force? Do you have links to all the parts that were ordered to be installed? Sure looks like if that center block was removed you would have no problem pushing those axles into place to install the c-clip and then p...

Re: Mechanical Ignition Timing Adjustment Procedure (MITAP)

I used a Dremel to wallow out the hole, then I checked the CKP correlation. When it was 0° at 3200 RPM as per the book, I locked it down. Of course, you're not supposed to have to adjust your timing, but needs must. Brilliant! I hope that number is available with my scanner. Thank you! :ty: I used ...

This is the way I would go as well, and if everything is ok then I would replace the pan or begin a teardown.
