Hi-Ace Camper 1993 Petrol


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I hope that this is the right place to post this?

Anyway, I'm now the proud owner of the above and would like to do some of my own service work before I take her out...

I'm thinking oil change, plugs, filters, brake pads, etc...

Now I haven't got any manual/workshop book for her. I've looked on the Haynes site and elsewhere, but can't find anything beyond about 1989 models.

Is there anywhere I can buy a manual that will give me basic service info like oil capacities, spark plug gaps, procedure for chanigng brake pads etc. There are so many of these things on Oz roads, I'm guessing there must be something?

Thanks,

Engine Oil Capacity including oil filter is 4.5 Litres...

Spark Plug gaps will be on a sticker close to the engine and it will also tell you the timing specs, firing order, etc, etc, etc...

Most of the information you want can be found in the owners manual that comes with the car... It's all in the back in the DIY and Specs sections...

Changing brake pads is a pretty basic procedure, take wheels off, undo lower caliper bolt, remove brake pads, open bleeder nipple and squeeze piston back all the way in... Tighten bleeder nipple, install new pads including the anti squeal shims and any interchangable clips on the old pads... Tighten caliper bolt, repeat process for other side of vehicle then bleed brakes and away you go...

Drive the car at around 60kmh, stomp on the brakes hard and release the brake pedal when you feel the car is just about to stop... Do that a few times and thats how you bed the new pads into the disc and you're all done...

Thanks for advice - the previous owner has told me that he has now found the owners manual - so that should give me a few pointers at least - still wonder though if there is a full manual available anywhere...?
