How did I know lol

Post by debz on Sun Mar 05, 2017 12:18 am

Bought a hijet.yes.
Knowledge on a hijet. A little but learning
Getting my van into shape.slowly
Advice on here. Excellent
New parts. Started
Full service. Not yet
So I think I've been learning more about these vans as I know problems and what to look out for so I ordered usual to get full service after I get some other work done. Told my husband I ordered the service parts he laughs and says why did you buy 4 spark plugs then. What's funny well you tell me as he told me to ask. ??????

Yes it's a 3 cylinder. But how was it meant to know i only needed 3 plugs. Be asking more questions now. Just hope I've ordered the right brake pads and cylinders now.

Same thing as as us long in the tooth members tell everyone and those newbies have found out and do, : ASK A QUESTION. Laughing

There are so many subtle differences between the 993cc and the 1300 you had before Debbie and some not so subtle - like : Who's nicked the other cylinder?

Almost everything on your present van is similar but not necessarily the same as your first van. Back lights are the same, rear bumper and reverse light the same, doors, windscreen, wipers, rear wiper, seat belts, but not a lot more.
Instrument cluster is different, early column controls slightly different, dash switches differ in looks but fittings the same.
But when you get onto major parts like engine, gearbox, propshaft, rear axle ratios, cables, the whole cooling system, starter motor, alternator, ignition system, front bumper and indicators and lights, front
suspension struts, the list is endless.
So best to check first before ordering anything major. If anyone is not sure of something then post a question. It may take a day or two to get a reply but will save time, possibly money ( Logi coming up with those brake cylinder prices and the led spots is a classic example) and agro ultimately.

I have forgotten about them Debz. I had a look at a Hi-Jet Romahome camper today and it failed the mot 4 years ago and has been stood since. It needed 2 rear wheel cylinders and Wight Motors the Daihatsu deal then quoted him £800 to do both of them and brake shoes. Unbelievable!!
