Re: POaStro: My POS 2003 AWD Astro Project

I like it a lot. It's black on the inside so you can easily see out of it.

Re: Front windshield replacement

It was pretty cheap the last time I had mine replaced, but you can tell that the glass is so much lighter than the original. It lasted a while, but got a rock chip that spread quickly. Definitely was inferior to the OEM. Small chips and cracks can be filled with resin. I would prefer to go this rout...

Re: 2nd row seat base removal 96 safari hi top conversion

Greg, as they are aftermarket I can't really say. Bolts had to come up from somewhere ;) Obviously could be a pain if they are above the fuel tank or in an odd place under a heat shield or something.

Re: Astro 1999 AWD Star Craft Enhancement V6

Welcome to the site! She is a beauty, hope we get to see some more of her during the daytime. Super nice conversion with 52k miles, you definitely got a winner with that one! Superchargers can be found for SBCs and S-10s, maybe some minor mods or clocking issues, but should be able to be adapted. Re...

Re: POaStro: My POS 2003 AWD Project

perforated vinyl on the rear windows. :text-worthless: So here is a picture of the perforated vinyl. Will have to take some better pictures as the pattern seems to mess with the image sensor or processor. The stuff seems to be holding up great. I bought a HUGE roll of it, so if anyone wants to do s...

140mm bolt set for 2" lift, grade 10.9 set of 6 bolts

Buying individually seems to be kinda pricey so I bought some extras and figured I would get rid of the rest to whoever needed them. Combined with the $3-4 lift blocks from ebay, makes for a cheap way to get your 2" body lift in the front. Each set will include 6 140mm long grade 10.9 bolts, 4 ...

Re: Coolant leak?

Most of the time they won't leak from the water pump gaskets unless it was a poor installation.

LIM can leak right behind the AC bracket and run down the front of the engine, that bracket can make it hard to see.

Hope it was your water pump, otherwise I'm betting it's due for LIM gaskets.

Re: Crank no start, help with diagnostic

It cranks but has no spark and no fuel pump prime, also obd2 scanner will not link with the computer (has power to odb2 port but will not link) Does the scanner work in other veh...

Re: Rear seat studs

Rod's Trucks wrote:I wonder why they used studs, instead of captive sockets like for the seat belts.

It would have been freaking awesome had they done that. But I'm sure it comes down to ease of assembly at the plant, saving x seconds to align each one saves a lot if you have 9-12million seats to install.

Re: Spidey Senses

Definitely would be looking at the smoke machine/vacuum leak. Lower intake manifold gaskets should probably be done anyway, if it isn't leaking yet, it will. The older poppet valves were the ones that had a problem with the fuel in the west IIRC.

Re: Fuel Spider difference?

Yes they are different, but you can retrofit the newer style into any van 96 and newer.

Re: My Safari was a victim of a hit and run, what now?

Thank you for the insight! Leaf springs (and other parts) are already on hand and had plans to install them next weekend. I'm not totally familiar with what the clamshell is; is that the bracket that is between the leaf spring and the axle? The clamshell mounts the leaf springs to the axle. They ar...

Re: Burl -- 2003 GMC Safari soon to be camper

I love the DIY battery setup! - Tightening torques are nearly impossible to find in the factory manual, looking these up ahead of time would be a good call. In the GM Techline eSI Digital Factory Service Manual(see links in sig) they are virtually all on one page. I will attach it here: 03_bolt_spec...

Re: Parts To sell

Yep, virtually any real hardware store has them, also called 'clip on nuts' or 'U clips'. LAPS and dealers should have them as well, Amazon https://amzn.to/2OJhrbD Ebay, McMaster Carr, etc. IIRC even HomeDepot has them in their automotive nuts/bolts section.
