Depo headlight

The wiring from the van is a 3 prong female (traingular) and the wiring from the headlight assembly is a 4 prong male (square). I'm going to have to cut the plug off the old light and put on the new headlights. You are right. Steven :M I just want to triple check before going about chopping the con...

Speedometer cable route, things along the way

Just replaced my frayed speedometer cable (think this also fixed odometer turned a 0.0001 on 600m test drive, yay) and found a few things. What is this? I can’t quite get the replacement speedo cable in the exact same position and it’s rubbing at the lower bolt. Tempting to remove if it’s got to do ...

dash Temp gauge not functioning

Next step: There's two wires connected to the temperature sender. Find the yellow with red stripe wire, connect it to earth (against the head should do) and turn the ignition on without starting the engine. The temperature gauge should move fairly rapidly towards hot. Turn the ignition off before t...

Hyundai D4BF engine install

Nice!

I'm wondering if you make this swap, what vehicle / VIN# do you use to search for parts on Amayama, etc? I'm assuming it doesn't remain a 1992 L300 Delica ...

Do things like timing belts, oil filter, air filter, thermostat, water pump, etc remain the same?

Speedometer, odometer & tripometer offline, any suggestions?

Thanks for the tip; took me a while to actually perform the test - coincidentally I can kinda judge speed by rpms ... highway at least 🤫

So this bit ...

Not turning! Does this also effect odometer(s)?

Speedometer, odometer & tripometer offline, any suggestions?

The strange part about the cable is it feels solid rather than having anything inside, nothing visible inside the gouge. but i understand the concept of cable inside cable housing.

Sounds like a good test. To be clear - roll van in Neutral. Or engine running; drive/reverse?

Thanks!

Speedometer, odometer & tripometer offline, any suggestions?

My speedometer has stopped working (reads 0 km/h no matter how fast I'm travelling) after pressing the tripometer whilst driving. Both the speedo and tripometer failed instantly after resetting to zero (tripometer is off kilter zero). -My odometer has been stuck at 129,999 for as long as I've had th...

Transfer case fill plug

Just wondering about my transfer case breather. Mine seems to be plugged because there was some suction when replacing u-joints ... should popping it out and cleaning it suffice, or has anyone replaced this with a better one? figure it's a fairly common size (metric vehicles) or likely to be a mitsu...

Cheap L300 torsion bar upgrade

When looking to purchase used torsion bars are there any tests one can conduct to check that they're not worn out already?

Fuse Link Box Repair ~ MB434379

The exposed wire leading to the spade doesn't seem brittle. I was pulling quite hard a few times in the process of removing the plastic housing and it didn't feel like it was waiting to snap. I backed off for fear of breaking it, but more being careful as it didn't feel like it was going to go. Gett...

Fuse Link Box Repair ~ MB434379

Awesome that was really helpful. Although now I'm wondering if the spade terminals in the fuse box eject the same way? Tried on my old one without much success, but maybe just need a tinier screwdriver. I did use 10-12 gauge crimps, as I noticed the wire was larger than the normal 16-14 in the van ....

Well they're L400 seats. I'm assuming there are some DIY brackets involved? They don't just bolt on do they?

Fuse Link Box Repair ~ MB434379

I'm considering ordering the new part from Japan, but I can't seem to find a way to confirm whether it would come with wires/plugs installed. I don't see a way to remove the wires from the back of the fuse box ... perhaps there is? But the only pics online I can find of the replacement part (Russian...

Hello! My van blew a fusible link (the one marked "LIGHT" in the photo below) the other morning after putting on my hazards, and shutting the engine off. The fog lights may have also been on. After walking away from the van (unloading a canoe) .. I noticed my hazards didn't work, but didn't inspect ...

Mounting Interior panels

So if I've binned my aircon compressor and the stuff infront of my rad (but only hacksawed the metal lines going rear) I could tear it out no harm? On another note I got rivnuts for 9mm holes (since that's what I measured, maybe 8.5mm I mean metric ruler isn't the most precise way to measure diamete...
