  1. Re: MasterAce 2CT Turns over but won't start

    Just to be clear, the glowplugs should physically be left in. You just don't want any electrical current going to them. Depending on the system, that could be simply pulling a fuse or unplugging the...

  3. Re: MasterAce 2CT Turns over but won't start

    It's a diesel. Fuel and compression and it WILL start. You could unplug the glowplugs and give it a small shot of starting fluid(ether). If the glowplugs are not easy to disable you could let them...

  5. Re: Middle row captains chairs and Rear Brown Suede / Velour seats

    I see you had a US van as well. Is the seat mounting at all similar between JDM and US market vans? Also, what do you want for them.
  6. Re: For Sale: 87 4x4 Van Automatic So Cal $6K

  7. Re: Engine noise, potential knock. Replacement motor suggestions?

    Actually, your van has a 4YEC engine. You are unfortunately correct in that it is nearly impossible to help you with this without actually hearing the noise in person. However, based on your...
  8. Re: Master Ace headlight high beams staying on?

    You could try running a jumper wire from the ground pin on the back of the headlight to a clean point on the body with the lights turned on to see if that makes a difference. It wouldn't hurt...
  9. Re: For Sale: 87 4x4 Van Automatic So Cal $6K

    Here's some pics for you. The t-case shifter assembly bolts on over top of the auto shifter. I'm pretty sure I had to use longer bolts but I was able to source all the parts and hardware from the...
  10. Re: Master Ace headlight high beams staying on?

    This sounds like a ground issue in the headlight circuit causing current from the lowbeam side to feedback into the highbeam side of the dual filament bulb in search of a ground path. This would in...
  11. Re: For Sale: 87 4x4 Van Automatic So Cal $6K

    It's been 8 years. I'll try to take some pics tonight or tomorrow. I think the only issue I had installing it was one bolt ear on the shifter assembly didn't make contact with the engine cover so a...
  12. Re: For Sale: 87 4x4 Van Automatic So Cal $6K

    The holes for the five speed shift cables are different than the auto. Unless you're planning to do a 5-speed swap as well, you'll need to drill your engine cover for the t-case cable. It was pretty...

    Re: Timing issue?? That's my guess....

    If the timing is supposedly "nuts on", the distributor is all the to one on the adjustment slot, and it's pinging that bad than the timing is not correct. When I was first learning, I was taught an...

    It is also possible that your harmonic balancer has spun causing the timing marks to move. It may be timed "dead on" to the timing mark, but if the mark has moved than the actual ignition timing is...
