    If any further parts are replaced on this vehicle, I will just add to this list, versus opening a sepperate post. Sources for searching parts I used are in the thread posted in my signature.
    I finally convinced my father to take this vehicle off my hands, and the usefullness of it over his golf cart for his ranch.

    Front strut rebuild

    I will be adding pictures/instructions on ft strut rebuild in this post.

    Step(1) - Check your suspension while pushing down on the front of vehicle, at top strut mount, to check before and after difference. Remove top strut mount cap to access center strut nut. While supporting vehicle in the center, and a floor jack under corresponding contro arm, remove top strut nut. Slowly lower control arm jack until spring pressure is zero.

    Step(2) This picture shows strut rod collapsed with zero return pressure - bad. Remove spring. Clean around where strut rod enters strut body. Eight sided nut.

    Step(3) Reinstall springless strut. Reinstall strut rod nut. Jack control arm up slightly to help support strut so you don't damaged threads when nut removed. Loosen nut at top of strut body - see channel locks.

    Step(4) Remove strut cartridge nut and seal.

    Step(5) Strut body nut removed, now strut cartridge is visible. Remove upper strut mount nut again. Lower control arm supporting jack. Compress strut cartridge rod if needed. Move top of strut body outwards to clear body/fender when removing cartridge from housing.

    Step(6) Strut cartridge, seal, and strut body nut. Right here, take the time to get the dimensions of strut cartirdge and body. There are aftermarket cartridges that measure about a 1/2" shorter, in this case, if I replaced them, I would add a rubber wedge in the bottom of the housing.

    Step(7) Strut housing minus cartridge. Clean housing of any debris or old fluid. Use shop air if available.

    Step(10) Install Dextron fluid to about 1/3 of the strut casing. Excessive fluid will self blead out of the top of the housing - no problem. Use thread anti-seize around strut body nut threads.

    Step(8) Pull strut rod(shiney part), in bursts, while holding lower cartdidge. There is seal tension that your trying to overcome to seperate base from the rod. The shims, spring, and caps you will see after disassembly in the next step. Pictured is the one insert and the parts from a disassembled insert.

    Step(9) Rod is now out of casing, and the rod parts can be disassembled. Lay parts out in order as removed, and clean individual items. The spiral spring acts as a check valve. Reassemble in reverse order.

    Starter Relay

    This may not be the proper term for this part, but when removed, the engine will not crank. It is located behind the left side of the dash up high. Denso OE#056700-5260(12volt 22amp) can be cross-referenced to numerous part numbers. Napa #AR355, AR215SB, or AR355SB. Choose the relay based on circuit diagram on side of your relay.

    Hey thanks for taking all the time to get these numbers for us. I got a 1992 s80lp for a few hundred about a year ago since then I have been searching for a starter for it. Problem is the starter was missing when i got it so I have no numbers at all and its proved harder than i thought to track one down. Mine is in excellent condition cosmetic wise, but i need a starter to find out if its worth messing with. Its a 2 wheel drive. Do you have any ideas on finding a aftermarket starter,I did find one but they wanted over $500 for it and thats not an option seeing as how I dont what kind of shape the rest of the motor and trans. are. Any help is very much appreciated.

    When I got my Hijet, my starter bushing was shot, before I found a bushing to fix it, I installed a starter(Napa #SR4605X) from a '91 Daihatsu Charade 3cyl. The starter mounted perfectly, but the starter solenoid is clocked differently from the original, about 75deg.off. The solenoid ends up being the lowest part of the eng/trans assembly. I didn't use it, I just mounted it. If I would've used it, I probably would've made a guard. When I was researching for a starter, I want to say the specs were the same: bendix rotation, torque, mounting. I don't have my notes on me, you may check my post in the Reference Section for specs. Quick search: Napa-$150+$44core, Rockauto-$60 no core charge.

    You may take a shot at your local wrecking yard for a Daihatsu starter. Check the Pick-n-pull website, and search based on your location.

    There are a few used parts suppliers on this site also.

    Good luck.
