Calgary Spring Meet-Up 2017

It's hard for me to get away with a 2 year old. But a convoy and picnic works fine for me

Hi everyone, what are some of the most common maintenance problems encountered with owning an L300?

Let's start from the top:
-head gaskets/warped heads
-leaking injector pump
-injector issues
-glow plug/cold start problems
-assorted oil leaks, mainly turbo and valve cover

Did I miss anything?

What to do with a crashed van?

Wow, it takes a lot to tip an L400 on a corner...

Try the dealerships in Vancouver. Rising Sun, Amazing Auto etc...

I heard there is a JDM wrecker near Armstrong as well. Good luck!

I just moved the little pad around until it fit relatively flush.

Nice. I think I'm going to extend the timeframe to mid June to see if we get more takers

PE8W vs PD8W

I'm surprised this isn't in the FAQ. (It is now: http://www.delica.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=18288) L400 Space Gear chassis codes. Example: PD4W HSEGE First 4 digits (“ PD8W ”) are chassis, next 5 digits ( HSEGE ) show options. 1st digit: P = L400/Space Gear 2nd digit: Wheelbase and drive A … S...

1994 spacegear whistling sound with gas pedal, loss of power, black smoke

That's a lot to unpack. An EGR stuck open could diminish power and reduce turbo efficiency. If you planned on deleting it anyways it couldn't hurt to get that out of the picture. What I'm suggesting is that there may be an exhaust leak (blown gasket) between the manifold and the exhaust side of the ...

PE8W vs PD8W

Thanks
PD8W: 2.8D/4WD/normal roof

PE8W: 2.8D (electronic injection)/4WD/high roof

I'm pretty sure they are both SWB but don't quote me on that

1994 spacegear whistling sound with gas pedal, loss of power, black smoke

The symptoms you describe sound like an exhaust leak between the engine and the turbo. Possibly the manifold to turbo gasket. I once did a roadside repair for this on a Town Ace in the middle of the night between Ft. Nelson and Whitehorse. We had nothing but a set of stubby wrenches, pliers and a sh...

looking for turbo help.

My l300 was my first turbo rebuild.

Really simple, just keep everything clean and organized, inspect for wear and damage as you go along and adhere to the torque specs and procedures listed in the 4d56t engine manual.

Roof load limit

Hiya, I'll try to keep this brief Just got the smittybilt overlander roof tent thrown up onto my L400 this weekend and for the sake of caution was curious if anyone happens to know the roof load limit? It is mounted upon two Thule 387 crossbars attached to the rain gutters. For reference the tent we...
