That is all you need from the harness.

Re: 2003 GMC Safari Brakes

I would totally be interested in seeing that video. Sorry site bloked my video. The best way is to upload it to youtube and then copy the video code and put it between the youtube tags. https://www.astrosafari.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=110697 I've never seen anything like that, so I'm only poking ...

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. Is this what you were getting on Oreilly? https://www.oreillyauto.com/shop/b/suspension---steering-16778/power-steering-16478/steering-hose-reservoir-line-12...

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.

Re: Solar panel, roof basket, and fan

Yep, fabrication definitely opens up a lot of options, you may not want to invest the money/space/time to do so, or maybe pay someone to to it for you. Always options.

Re: Solar panel, roof basket, and fan

Do you mean something like this? roof_rack2.jpg Ideally you would want as little shading as possible. There are probably calculators that you can use to determine exactly how much your output is going to drop(it can be significant) by having some shading. Could even contact your panel manufacturer ...

Going forward, I'm satisfied with addressing issues as they present. I'm looking at a parts van, a good candidate, identical but RWD, and trying to decide if it's worth the investment or frivolous. They can be great to have if it's cheap enough and you have the extra space to store it. Yours is in ...
