Hi All... Does anyone know if the main heater pipes running down the valley of the 6VE1 is the same for Rodeo and Isuzu.
The o'ring on the Holden pipe have changed from a 3.5mm wide band style oring to a 1.5 mm standard o'ring...

The seat for the band style oring on the pipe is very wide, 'bout 4mm.
I am now supposed to fit the 1.5mm oring...

Perhaps the pipe they are supplying now-a-days is from Isuzu which has a seat more suitable for a standard o'ring...

crazy stuff having to make a post like this - i do know there is not a service bullentin on thepipe but there is one on the orings. BUT the parts guy said if the part was swapped from one brand to another and it was different, that there would not be a sevice bulletin because the part hasnt changed,,,,,

Ta Muzbry - I've tried fitting multiple orings in two other circumstances, a gas and a power-steer line. I tried multiple times on each of the afore mentioned items. I tried with many differant configs of orings, ie differing size's, id' od' widths etc etc... but, It never worked for me. I did get close in one cirumstance by not toqueing up the join to proper spec but i was really uncomfortable it not being tight enough to stop the join from shaking whislt travelling over the shock of blue-steel roads..

During this post i've rang Holden Head Office and requested to see the service bulletin that advised thier parts department to swap the 1.5mm oring for the 3.5mm band... They where able to give me two recall reference's but not the specific service bulletin because apparently that the parts dept would have the copys of them rather than CC

Head office gave me the choice of ringing the parts dept and requesting the service bullenten or for them to raise an incident report on it. I chose to ring parts and am waiting untill tomorrow morning to see if they come up with anything.

Gday again
You could try CAT for the part. They have flat O rings on some of their motors. You might have to ask an experienced parts person

problem is, the pipe may need to be replaced to suit the new oring!

G'day LandCoaster,

I'm not familiar with the Rodeo, but from your description it could be a QUAD RING your after.

Go to a reputable bear services place, like CBC or such, with your old ring and measurements and they may be able to help you.

Regards Jim-Bob.

Holden Franchise has confirmed to me, in writing, that the valley pipe where the oring sits has in fact been superceeded by another part!

but they have not bothered to go as far as looking at the part to see the oring seal width's have changed...

my plan of action is
1) esculate this to a customer-care incident
2) send a pic of the broad o'ring and the skinny o'ring insitu on the pipe with the pic tittled, "is this is what you are paying workshop warranty claims for?
3) source the o'rings from above mentioned posts..
