I suggest you never post photos of an empty engine bay Yuki. If not Tony will come along and suggest you fill the space with a Cummins diesel!

I get a homework that is how to remove the lock nut.
I used a hammer and cold chisel. Use the cold chisel by placing it close to the corner of the nut and hammering on it to try and get the nut to turn.

Oh! Cummins diesel is nice but I'm going to go with Chevy.
I should have put a plate which give notice "Reserved" in the engine bay.

Needless to say I'm anxiously awaiting Tony's response......

Thank you for the advice!
I'll try to do that.
By the way should I use a cold chisel when tighten the nut?

However, a remanufactured brake booster has not arrived yet.

Yuki has a lot more incredible Japanese diesel choices and better parts availability than a Cummins.

How about an Isuzu 6BD1T , or a Hino turbo diesel. I'm sure there's a JDM turbo diesel that would be a perfect fit.

FYI When I took my coach in for its initial going over and certification, the truck shop I took it into were big into Cummins; the owner had a Dodge Cummins, and so did almost every employee; but the couple of mechanics I spoke with were very impressed with the Isuzu 6BD1 in my rig, and admitted that the Isuzu was far better in quality to the Cummins.

Cheers
Sidekick Tony

Actually, kinda looks like an Anime transformer.

I hope you're taking lots of pictures and writting down bolt lengths, out of which hole, in what crossmember. It wouldn't be the first time we've heard "Dang, where did the longer ones go?"

Cheers

Yes, we can get Isuzu, Hino and Mitsubishi diesel engines.
Definitely those are good quality.
Of course turbo is perfect!

If it's possible to convert to an diesel engine easily, that's great.
Diesel is more durable and cheaper running cost than gas.
However, Tokyo and near prefectures legislate a strict law for old diesel engines. I can't registration it where I live..

Hahaha! Yeah, but I don't know what would become of the Argosy.

I almost remember which bolts go which holes.
But I forget some pieces..
Maybe I'd say "Dang, where did it come form?"

Thank you for the compliment!
Oh.. that's not good.
Anyway, you don't need to be in a rush, you're blessed than me.
I spend more time, and extra money for shipping fee & tax with every shopping.
