L300 Modern Front Bumper Wanted

Hello folks, I'm looking to find a decent used front bumper for my '93 Delica. Currently I have the traditional set up with the bull bars & fog lights. The metal behind the bars is rusting and rather than fix this, I'm hoping to do this upgrade to the newer more modern bumper instead. It looks like ...

Alternator Belts replacement

Hey Growler, I'm only going to change out my alternator and power steering belts this time around as I believe I can do this job myself. I'm at 74K since the last time I had my timing belts changed, so I'm reluctantly leaving this job until next year. I have the link you shared with the relevant par...

Alternator Belts replacement

Thanks joebillhill. This bit of info helps for sure. I dont think I even need to worry about the A/C belt as I had to cut it off last fall due to the compressor pulley seizing. Hahaha

I think I might be able to do this. Wish me luck :shock:

Thanks again for the help

Alternator Belts replacement

Hello folks, I gave that all to familiar squeak coming from the belts of my '93 L300. I've ordered a new set of genuine Mitsubishi belts as well as the power steering belt from amayama. My plan was to have a friend who teaches Auto Mechanics do the job with some of his students. The problem is that ...

Front Bull Bar Removal

Thanks fellas, And thanks for the tips on how to remove the front bull bar assembly. It's difficult without having photos to look at,but it makes more sense now. I work at a local high school here in Peterborough and I'm good friends with the Auto Shop teacher. This might be a good job for some of h...

Front Bull Bar Removal

I saw this stuff at Canadian Tire. And i did some research on how to paint plastic. Seems reasonably straight forward. Now I just have to figure out how to remove the plastic along with the rest of the bull bar..... lol Planning my first canping trip in the van over the Victoria Long Weekend. It's b...

Front Bull Bar Removal

Hello folks, As I keep chiseling away at stuff on my '93 Super Exceed, I'm at the point where I'd like to remove the front bull bar and paint the grey bumper behind it as well as the black plastic on the bull bar itself. I searched for older posts on how to remove the front bull bar, but found nothi...

Wet Floor In Cab Area

The rubber mats look great, and will be far more functional I'm sure. I think I finally fixed all my leaks. Not only did I have to remove the quarter panels, but I had to seal up the drivers side windshield washer stalk. I tried to get at it from the inside of the vehicle, but it's way up underneath...

Wet Floor In Cab Area

Actually that sounds like an excellent idea!! Carpet is not very practical in vehicles. I tried to find rubber floor mats for our L300's, but had no luck in my search . Apparently they did make them for our van's, but they're very hard to find. I love the Weather Tech Floor Mats, but obviously they ...

Wet Floor In Cab Area

Hello folks, I finally got around to addressing the wet floor in my 93 L300 Super Exceed. There was lots of water coming in from outside and every time it would rain, it would get all over the fuse panel,not to mention everything else. I consulted past posts on this topic and ended up removing the f...

Is that a problem?

Well I got one thing right. I told you there's some great people on here with excellent advice. And now you're seeing it firsthand. Both Growler & Falco have offered up excellent posts and help to everyone on here including myself!! And just to clarify, mine doesn't blow black smoke, but I don't liv...

Is that a problem?

Your L300 shouldn't be blowing out smoke. I have a 1993 L300 with 146,000 kms on the clock and it only blows a little bit of grey smoke when started up first thing on a cold morning, usually below 0 degrees Celsius. I'm not a mechanic, this is just how mine runs. And from everything I've read on her...

Timing & Balance Belt Part Numbers

Thanks for the link Growler. I'm going to print this off and share it with my mechanic. I have some stuff already printed on the 4D56 Engine, but I don't believe it's this detailed. This is well beyond my capabilities, but not for the person who might do it. When he worked in the trade before he sta...
