Long time and no Sierra updates!

This year will be 4 years for mine and am thinking of selling it.

Not had any issues but was debating wether I should upgrade or spend one more money on it

Well I did put my Sierra on the forum for sale ( though didn't get time to show the vehicle to all the people who called as I was traveling)

Spoke to Doc Kamat and he is advising me to keep it. I can do with the money though !

If in doubt of the turbo then suggest you stay away!

If the rest of the vehicle is good, then why not look at sourcing a replacement turbo ?

Just that it might be a better idea to start with a vehicle that is mechanically up to the mark. Unless of course the idea is to have a project vehicle

I paid 10-15 K more than the going rate but have hardly sent the Sierra to the workshop other than body work

And going by the various Sierra stories I have a decent deal

btw Anyone knows whats Jaydeeps replqacement ride now that he sold off his Turbo ? Dr kamat ?

Please help. Need just 2 more things to get my beast done & happening. Attached is the image of the combination switch which has been fried. Need a place where i can get this or anybody who has it & is selling. Also, Need Hand Brake kit (excluding the floor lever) or an alternative for it. Please help. Does any other vehicle's parts fit in? Please share some ideas / work-arounds for this.

That is the combi switch from the TCIC Safari was available at TASS for Rs. 425 .
As for the hand brake the new cables are not available and the sumo ones do not fit your best bet is to try the ones from the 207.
please post pics of the hand brake and what exactly is needed i can try to get these things second hand from a contact in the scrap market,we will work out the shipping part as and when these items are procured.

Does this mean that a TCIC Safari switch will do the trick? Will check that one too.
And sure, Will get the hand-brake pics by tomorrow. Have to ramp-up the beast and capture pics. Got another lead form a friend in JC Road who claims to have a few spares for Sierra. Will check it out today noon & share my feedback here.

Feedback: General Auto Spares - JC Road, Bangalore: Had been to the place. Though he has quite a few spares for the engine & stuff, Almost none for the cosmetics. That leaves the switch to be unavailable. :( And yes! I got the bonnet logo!!!

Did any one try to change the final ratio of NA sierra.I think the stock is 4.55.Is the MM crown and pinion will be a direct fit?.If so then can be changed it to 4.27?Any disadvantages?
