    You might want to check with Todd at the mini truck garage 9517698789.
    Also does anyone know if any of the daihatsu hijet carburetors will work on a Asia Kia Towner? Also looking for a fuel pump relay. Thanks

    Seems like ZakRides has left the building.

    You can shop Yahoo Japan Auto auctions... no translate/alternate options available though except what your browser provides. However.

    Enter your truck/van whatever model designation. Ie. DB51T etc... that should get you started and go from there. Then, use the 'Buyee' service to get 'er done. They facilitate overseas transactions and shipping, and iirc the interface is available in English and maybe some other languages too.

    Good comprehensive list, thanks for adding that.

    Being here in Japan I've never had the need, so I have no idea which service is best.

    I looked on Yahoo Japan, and there was what looked like a set for the Atrai Van, which would probably work. But, I don’t know enough to figure out how a person would order them.

    You'll have to check out the proxy sites and decide which one you can work with.

    Hi, I’m wondering if you could get me a couple switches for my 1994 Diahatsu Hijet S-110P , it’s the 659cc EF-NS ENGINE. The number on the body is: S110P-029173. I need the reverse light switch and the coolant fan switch. Let me know if you could send me this as I just got this truck and now must find a parts source.

    Well, I tried to deal with you here ZakRides, I wasn’t really optimistic about results so off to more sources.

    ZakRides, last post in this thread was on 9/10/2019, and he was last seen on this Forum, 7/20/2020! So maybe he just hasn't been on the Forum. Don't know!

    Quite possibly indeed. It’s like detective work getting a list of part numbers collected, which I’m doing, and next is finding a sensible source to depend on with decent or reasonable prices.

    For me, getting into the Mini, was the hardest part, I found! Between, parts being discontinued, and not being made any more, trying to cross reference the parts became, an even bigger challenge! It can get pretty frustrating at times, especially, if your relying on it as an every day driver!

    I learned to deal with such things almost fifty years ago. My first car was a Sunbeam, Alpine in 1972. Sunbeam had been bankrupt and closed since 67. Parts houses sold either import or American parts, no intermixing. Parts were hard to find, But I figured out that if I walked into a NAPA with a bearing and race, they could match it by the numbers on them, or measure them and figure it out by the dimensions. If I had walked in and asked for the front outer wheel bearing for a Sunbeam, they wouldn’t have it. If I walked in with the parts and asked them to match them, (it’s out of a trailer my dad tows with his tractor, that my uncle welded up out some old car parts Grandpa had at the ranch.).

    And, some things I just had to fabricate. Suspension bushings were loose, couldn’t find replacements. An old machinist at the shop where I was sweeping floors to pay for the machine work on my engine, had me bring in the bad ones, and he showed me how to make new ones out of sintered bronze. Road a little rougher, but it sure was tight and response, with absolutely no play.

    The scrounging and substituting skills have come in handy with my Hijet. Things like figuring out a spark plug I can buy at NAPA to replace the NGK-BCPR5EKD stock plugs, only ever available in Japan, and no longer made. You can’t look up the stock plug in the NGK North America catalog, it is based entirely on year, make and model. The English section of the EU catalog has a really nice table which explains what all the letters mean. From that, I could figure out that a NGK-BPR5E-11, regapped down to 0.9 to 1.0-mm will work just fine. As will the reliable old Champion RC12YC or RC9YC.
    Adam C Spry and Limestone like this.

    We should start a sticky listing the years of a Hijet that fit a certain list of parts. For eg, 1992- 1996 Hijet and list of part numbers. ESP the commonly used tune up parts or commonly used.

    There is a sticky in the Hijet Forum. Or there used to be I haven’t looked at it in a while.

    Ok, I’ll check for it.
