    Read the forum's, past post's! There is a lot, of great info, in the Forum's past posts! Too many want Magical answers! It's a Forum! Even the old stuff is great! Search, and use the Search button! A lot of stuff is here if you look for it! If someone helps you. Don't forget to thank them, their time is valuable too! Don't be afraid to help someone else! Pass the knowledge along! A lot of others have done so, in the past! They have built this Forum! It's up to us to keep it going!

    Thanks Limestone, I've been tempted to blow up about this for quite awhile. This is exactly why some of the best older guys have given up on the forum, Spaner was the smartest guy I've ever run into on any forum and he got sick and tired of the same questions coming up day after day with no attempt to research. I think this has a lot to do with why Terry Bearden,aka Trax N Horns dropped out ,just to name a couple of really good guys who contributed a lot. It's also the reason Colin made a sticky on every sub forum about searching before posting.
    Just don't let it run you off, we need guys like you and Jigs and all the other new guys to kick in and keep the forum active.

    Hi guys;

    Being new to the HiJet world, I've actually had some of my most glaring questions answered by searching old forums; The downside of this is the questions found in old posts don't get acknowledged, so you don't see them to know that someone has found the info useful. I suspect also there are a number of us who have "variations" to our issues and these weren't found in our searches, producing posts that seem repetitive. Because my involvement with these trucks is recent, I apologize if some of my questions seem more on the trivial side... Having said that, I am very appreciative of your collective knowledge as there seems to be a dearth of info elsewhere. I suspect we are all "learning as we go" and those who have owned a HiJet for a while and have accumulated a good knowledge base can be very useful to us newbies. I sincerely hope you will be patient so some day I can also impart some useful information to new people on the forum as I progress working on my truck!

    Jim,
    Thanks, for the Moral support! I guess we all need it at times! It's guy's like you, Jigs, Fred, and many previous that keep me going! I've been helped out tremendously in the past, and I'm just trying to give back, like the many others! Roadster, I like to always say that no questions are dumb or stupid, and yes we are all learning as we go! Hey, none of us are perfect! I really do appreciate your input on this also. Again, that's what helps to make the forum great! Spaner, has several very good, and informative posts, as does Colin, and Trax! Jim, it's guys like you that we will continue to need! I'm glad that you've showed interest again, and came back online!!!

    These are all GREAT points! Remember, no questions are stupid! I mean that! A few of us have been working with the Moderators to help improve the sight, and yet not change it drastically, or ruin the Great, site that others have started, that were all so thank full for! That's why it really helps to add your Signature to your profile, and comment on a past thread that was helpful, and than the other members, past and present for there helpful insight! There are times when we search and we can't seem to find what were looking for, or were in a hurry and just want the answer! We get it! It's a Forum, the more interaction the better!

  9. Thanks Limestone. I'm going to log in on the computer and do the signature thing. Format is weird on my phone. Soon, I'm going to post a short version of what all I have done thus far, on my thread about "warm up starting issues".
    That way someone can have a idea of what I did. Thanks for all your help!!

    These little trucks, have a lot of things I’ve never seen before. And, parts can be hard to source. When I figure out how to substitute something like the Mini Denso race alternator available for around a hundred bucks for the stock alternator, that the online sources want $300 for used, on my Hijet, I make posts to share it.

    And, I understand that a lot of folks may never have worked on a carbureted engine, with a points ignition before. So, I don’t mind giving folks a hand figuring them out.

    But, I’ve explained how to set the best lean idle ona carb enough times that I did a post on how to do it. And, I’m still explaining it to folks.
