thanks "city_96" and "quitefar"

indeed kept in good shape.

after some research i have found things!

yeah
extra switch to increase ac blower speed.
the console meter lights were not glowing. atlast found them , it has a seperate switch.

now 2 problem that is to be corrected
1. steering box. its kind of vague.
2.tyres.

tomorrow planned to do some wiring , overall the ground connection is week. just laid a new ground wire for the self motor and alternator. the car starts even more smoother.

have to remove excess wires like prev amp and sub woofer set up wires.
re correct ground wires mainly.


fan problem sorted out.
solution : The bolt in fans pulley assy was loose and thread died and some how it managed to run . new one Oe not availble. Duplicates available for 900/-.
corrected new one with help of lathe. now temperature is normal with ac. Yet to check in noon times with ac "ON"


Engine oil , air filter ,diesel filter , gear oil changed.

First of all a huge congratulations from my side Ilango. Sierra is one car i love and infact its the car i learnt driving in! We also used to face this radiator fan issue in our Sierra. I don't know how much our Sierra was giving in highways , was not bothered much about that at that age! Your car is really looking unique and the car also looks well maintained.

Many congratulations for ultimately getting home the Sierra, Ilango. I’m sure that you can turn it into a looker and the result can be seen from the change on the interiors itself. Do share more pictures soon.

Drive Safe,

This was every 90's boy's dream. I envied neighbor's cousin's white Sierra with big truck-like ORVM and those chrome 4x4 fog lamps and boot full of speakers back in my childhood. Nearby VIP colony had two Sierras and an Estate in same house, later replaced with 2 Lancers.

Well said. I would love to own a Sierra, but then, finding one in decent condition is not so easy.
