    Power window motor options?

    so, it didn't work? I am also confused, as some sites list a part as eg: right front/left rear, while another lists it as left front/left rear. I get that there might be 2 different motors needed, but the A! Cardone lists as working for all 4 windows.

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    Well, crap. We ended up getting a zerostart heater off a friend in town, but we haven't put it in yet. We can't take too long though, the snow's gonna fly any day now. So if a block heater is the best way to go, anybody got a prt # that fits a 1HD-T? I've heard a ton of problems about finding...

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    we have been through the fuses, and just like the last time it did this, they are fine. that would have been such a nice fix, but I guess you gotta ask, right? Here's a potential trouble spot, though: It occurred to us that it didn't start doing this until AFTER we put the stereo in. The...

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    if you put a block heater in, then I have a question: which one, and did you have to bend the elements to make it fit? The shop here can't find any info on the block heater's size, and they want to pull the plug, measure the threads, then order the right part. Which means our daily driver is...

    Heh, also, the 12/12V debate and switchover seems like a bit of a hot topic on all cruiser forums. When I finally do find this sucker, I'll be posting it on the definitive part # thread.

    Thanks for the link! We have a really good mechanic here at Northern Auto Electric, but he wants me to get him the denso part number so he can cross-reference and look for a deal. As far as all the info here, I have been looking around for like 2 days, and found a whole bunch. I haven't...

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    I'm in Fort St. John, B.C., Canada. Also, the closest thing I can find is a Denso 280-117 (sorry, I can't seem to link to the actual part page on the denso website, it's just a popup), but it only states it will fit a 3FE. Searching for 1HD-T seems to get me nothing.

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    ok, I did some more snoodging around with the multimeter, and it looks like there is a 6V difference between the 2 terminals on the series/parallel switch that go to the +'s on the batteries. If it's not the switch, I'm fed up with looking for what it could be, and if it IS the switch, I'm fed...

    HDJ81, 1HD-T power drain/dead battery

    So we bought our '91 RHD VX a few months ago in Prince George, and almost immediately had power problems. The voltmeter will slowly drop while we're driving, then the batteries won't have enough juice to start, we just get that horrible clacking noise from the starter. We bought a booster pack...
