Re: The Tata Sierra Restoration Project
Please guide me this is my first time here and i dont know much about automobiles.
I bought a tata sierra '95 from first owner last year. I am in love with this truck. but as with everyone there are some changes or modifications I wish to know about and the possibility/feasibility.
Congrats for the car .
I always feel it is slightly bend towards the back and I wish to raise its rear height for many reasons (the roll). not sure if it can be done on coil springs and I dont want to change them to leaf or any other. I had original shockers installed few months ago.
Could you post pictures .
From your query , i think you need to change the coil spring.
Get sierra coils. seller may try to sell safari coil spring which is exact fit , but a inch or more extra in height , which male the front dip
the air conditioner is disappointing. I did get a custom blower switch installed which increases air flow but not cooling. and in any condition the car never crosses 50% temp gauge but with ac on it shoots upto the red mark. though all mechanics have confirmed me here that its alright with tata sierra to get heated up with ac on. can i increase cooling and reduce the temp in any way? change to aluminium radiator or change ac unit? how successful would rear cooling wall unit would be?
Clean up the radiator. changing to aluminum radiator is last most option and not need in most case.
Sierra red mark is less than 100 degree for sure.
where as modern day cars , almost 60% scale is 95 degree.
Check up my thread for alternate way . I have added a electric fan.
For ac , Sierra from 94 has subros unit , prior to that it had denso unit .
subros unit runs good for 20 years kind of if ac gas is maintained well.
This unit with superking blower and cooling coil is best .
Superking /unicla as called is 12k for original and 8k duplicate. beware.
Go for rear cooling wall if you are not satisfied with front , i bet you wont !
