Re: Ln106 wandering steering

Yep it has a lock nut and a flat screw head, relieve the lock nut and if I remember right it only needs half a turn, turn it enough so there's no slop in your steering. Ie when you move steering wheel side to side while truck is stationary there should be no play before wheels respond

Re: L300 4wd wanted

99% are auto.
Plus they are a bit big and low slung for me
The vans are a bit more robust and look better then the delicas.

I've owned 1 before and out of the 20+ vehicles I've owned that's the 1 I've enjoyed the most.
Plus suitable for family, camping, hunting

I've read u can adjust kickdown on these via cable then I've read some say u can't, is the cable below the throttle cable for kickdown?
On mine its directly below throttle cable on injector pump and goes back into firewall about mid-way, above engine?

Re: d21 auto adjustments

I'm thinking this could be a problem.
Not so much the new ecu but the power/hold switch, the switch itself has power to it, ie is illuminated but there's no indication on the dash itself and the switch does nothing. Power or hold don't affect gear changes, maybe that's stuck in hold?

So after getting the truck running again I know need to make some adjustments. There is no kickdown at all, so I have to manually select the gears... And at foot to the floor it only revs until 3000rpm before changing in every gear. Lastly, because of the above issues, it won't hold in overdrive at ...
