Re: V6 HT leads (again!)

Same leads as I used on my V6 .. I suggest you replace .. or at least clean the terminals inside the dizzy cap at the same time ..

Re: Jalimports

A grade 3.5 is not the best ... ask to look at the auction sheet to check why .. Mine was a LPG / JAL a 1998 V6 mushroom roofed .. excellent mechanically .. had her for around five+ trouble free years .. conversion left a bit to be desired as the leckiy system in particular left a bit to be desired ...

Re: Lpg conversion

Dunno if you got your Cam belt changed .. but the same guy quoted me £150 labour for my V6 Alphard .. plus parts at cost ..

Cam / crank seals are well worth getting done at the same time ..

Re: Two sheared wheel studs

As your studs have snapped off, there maybe enough clearance to 'drift' them out and use as a pattern to check diameter / source the correct ones ..??

Re: Two sheared wheel studs

Wheel studs are splined on the end and just need knocking out ... and the new ones knocking back in with the threads protected with a wheel nut .. Check before you buy as I believe there are two spline diameters either 13 or 14.3 mm .. Dunno how much room there is on the back so they can be done wit...

Re: service due

For a routine service any garage will do it .. Except for changing the oil and filters most is just a visual check any way .. there are no special parts to get from Japan ..

Re: service due

Except for maybe a cam belt change any normal garage can service a V6 Bongo .. even my 13 year old grandson can change the 6 spark plugs .. !!

The oil / filter change .. brake pads and such are completely routine stuff .. even Halfrauds / Kwik Fit .. ATS etc: can do them ..
