    With my short time of owning a Hijet, and shorter time owning a Minicab, I still find myself on the net spending numerous hours just trying to research parts. The following websites are ones that I have used automaticaly in my quest, and I hope they come to help others. I like using dimensions/specs based websites to try and narrow "the field" on parts that may/will work. I will be opening two seperate threads for my vehicles in there related brand forums, listing all of the aftermarket parts that I have found along the way. Invest in a sliding micrometer to measure inside/outside distances, roughly $15-30.

    www.Napaonline.com: used to cross-reference other name brands, and find vehicle counterpart.

    catalog2.genpt.com/catviewer15/(S(q5lajxf5uotlqk55tyh4rjbb))/Welcome.aspx: Napa's companion website that is a bit more versitel in the info, but lacks prices. Click on buyers guide red box to see vehicle using that part.

    www.Summitracing.com: used for numerous items selected based on dimensions/specs, it will help narrow down to your need. Seeing how most brands are not made by them, I will plug their part # in to napaonline to see if I can get it localy.

    www.infodozer.com: numerous oe and aftermarket part #'s listings.


    Electrical:
    www.napaechlin.com/upload/NAPAEchlin2/Documents/ECH_NA141_HQr.pdf: large catalog(1000+pgs.) of sensors, switches, relays, pigtails, distributor vac. advance solenoids, etc. that are offered by napa's electrical division, Echlin. Sensor/switch companion pigtail part numbers at page 969. Take part number to napaonline.com and input # to find specs of sensor/switches etc.

    ws1.wilsonautoelectric.com/ec03/part.php: awsome site for alternator/starter parts search. Plug in your starer/alternator number, and the search function will give a break down of components. Cross-reference showing numerous manufacturers.

    www.wagneralt.com/catalog/books/default.asp: catalogs of parts to rebuild starters and alternators, what your local rebuilder uses.

    www.rtpnet.org/~teaa/bcigroup.html: battery size chart.

    www.bosch.com.au/content/language1/html/4599.htm: catalog of alternators/starters with dimensions and internal part numbers.


    Steering/Suspension:
    Monroe.com/catalog/documents/08_mountinglengthsheet.pdf: will give you a great starting point for your suspension needs. With that part number you can research matching vehicle and price. This helped when it came time to change my Hijet front struts, the ft strut casing KYB # jumped over as a cross-reference, only to find out they were cartridges, so I rebuilt them myself.

    http://shop.hyperauto.ru/up/doc/KYB_jp_cars.pdf: catalog of KYB struts/shocks.

    http://shop.hyperauto.ru/up/doc/OEM_KYB.pdf: cross-reference catalog from OE to KYB part numbers.

    www.interparts.eu.com/pdf/CVBootNumerical.pdf: gives vehicle dimensions for your cv-boots and other vehicles that it goes on. Remember, there could be multiple boots for just one outer/inner joint. Get your dimensions to verify.

    www.gorilla-auto.com/lug.nuts: specificaly for lug nuts. Will help you select lugs based on threading, shoulder, depth, and color. This site helped me with finding 10x1.25 lug nuts, that had a wide shoulder, when converting from 10" stock steelies to 12" steelies on my Hijet. I found the cheapest to be from autopartsdealer.com, #71117, 4packs of 4 lugs each for $22US shipped.

    Suzuki owners:
    I don't know if this is a post on the Suzuki reference side, but I found carb(dd51/db51), distributor(db51) and other items with part numbers, that interchange between the Suzuki and Cushman(k6a motor). Reference site out of Australia: Link. Jacobsen Turf Link for same 6ka model. Listings for both carb/efi fuel pumps. Both pumps show available. 1stsuzukiparts.com, input oe number to check availability.

    Idler Arm Bushings: I have seen numerous post for the Suzuki Carry steering bushing going bad. I might be able to narrow down a aftermarket replacement if someone can give me the bushing dimensions. I don't own a Suzuki to compare.

    Mistubishi Owners:
    Info on the 3g8x motor that has been previously posted, thanks to Freemont, and others input in the Mits. forum. A link of the Toro Workman model #07200/#07202 that uses the 3g8x motor. mitsubishiparts.com, input oe number to check availability. U11-U66 parts catalog.

    How this came about: While checking timing marks I noticed a 1/4" cut in the t-belt. I found the kks website, specs/part number for my timing belt. Checked numerous North American t-belt manufacturers websites. Dayco belts shows they offer one and listed the vehicles it goes on. Plugged that number into Napa's website, good to go. The belt fits the PASSENGER side of a flat four motor. I plan to verify this in the next month or so, working on other issues.

    I hope to add to this listing in the future.

    Members: I would like to ask you to give your part #'s whenever you repair yours with aftermarket parts, that way we can continue to help eachother. Thanks.

    Your welcome Fupa, D'Animal, and olddatsunfan.

    wow quite a list...we need an organized section on this forum with parts listed that can be added too simply, and easily searched....I know I've put a bunch up at various times but they are scattered all over the place....good job
     
  8. dowhat

    dowhat Member

    Thanks Fupa,

    I agree on info being scattered from forum to forum. If a owner would make a thread of their own vehicle in that manufacturers reference section listing parts used, maybe someone could find a part # or source quikly. That's my goal with my Hijet and Minicab. I just don't have my notes at hand and thinking the Minicab thread would be a waste of space.

    I know what you mean about the Mits.. very hard to find cross references for compared to the Daihatsu....I kind of put my U42 on the back burner a bit while I'm playing with the Mira..and had no luck with struts for the U42t..even suppliers dont have any listed...Just weren't as many sold in as many countries.. Yes a locked post only added to by 1 person with all their part #s would be good...maybe a cross reference category on the home page divided into tune up,suspension,body,electrical etc.

    Fupa,

    It's not so much trying to cross-reference oe part numbers, the time is finding dimensional listing catalogs for the part I need. I attack the problem of getting my parts specs and going from there. Like needing a bolt, you need to know threading, length, and width before going to the hardware store. The brake dimensional catalog has been on my hit list for months, and found two this week. I just wish I would have written down specs of items while working on the Hijet, I would have more parts listed(drum specs, bearing numbers). I have a ton more info on a zip drive, but it's use isn't needed....chinese master cylinders catalog. I can tell you, the listings above, have taken a ton of time.

    With being a mechanic, I have the tools to get the specs, test a component, or try and source parts.

    I'll print most of the pdf catalogs and have them in a binder, knowing I'll need them no mater what vehicle brand I'm working on in the future.

    As far as my U42t, I have zero time to work on it, between finishing the Hijet, and working on the home. If I do have some spare time, I'll try and find front struts that would work for the both of us.

    If I'm correct on the Mits struts the front struts for a 1989 Chev Tracker/Suzuki Sidekick may be the ticket...dimensionally they are close with only an extra 2" in contracted and extended length...they have no spring perch since the Sidekick used a separate coil spring...so you could use an adjustable aftermarket perch (lowering kit type)...the problem has been with the Monroe spec catalogue..so far their measurements have been way wrong on 3 others I have tried that according to the dimension and measurement/strut body type chart,should have fit.....Merry Christmas and heres hoping we get it sorted in the new year:):D

    I've searched every single interchange part, every catalog and sizing chart and can't find an idler bushing for my Carry :( I guess I'm going to have to break down and spend the money on a new one from a dealer... if I can find one.

    Iron,
    I recently worked on a 2001 Nissan Xterra and took a look at its idler arm, the assembled dimensions of its bushing look close to what you gave me. I googled that vehicle idler arm bushing and found, http://www.sccxterra.com/smf/index.php?topic=98.0. The manufacturer is at http://bandit4x4.com/category/4x4-truck-parts/steering-parts/, you may contact him with your dimension needs. Second, the Nissans have zerk fittings to lube the arm. There is plastic, brass, SLR, and other info I haven't researched yet as replacements. If I find new info I'll post right here, and my first post.

    Edit: That brass bushing offered by bandit4x4 looks great, greaseable at that. If I ever need one, I would look into brass insert bushings with greaseable grooves. And drill into my idler arm to add a zerk fitting.

    www.4x4parts.com/nissan/idler-arm-bushings-p-5257.html is the plastic OE replacement for Nissans.

    Awesome! I've ordered a replacement in the meantime because I need my truck to be drivable but from the looks of things it's probably not going to last for more than a year or so. They just aren't designed to take the kind of beating I'll be dishing out, especially with the added weight of the plow setup and the abuse of the 10" wide tires. I did wonder about just welding a steel washer on the bottom and the top of the idler arm and calling it a day but then noticed that the arm itself appears to be made of cast iron. I may go ahead and weld something out of steel this summer :D If it turns out I'd bet there would be a few takers on this site...

    Does anyone know what the best size/part number would be for a 1991 S83p Hijet rear shock absorber (with 2" lift)? Is 20851 the right one? I'm still getting rear thumping over bumps and want to try gabriel hijackers rear shocks or maybe something like a monroe sensa-trac load adjusting shock but I want to order the correct size.
