I picked up a few 10ftx2x6's last weekend and broke the altimeter/tippy-over gauge pod off it's moorings...again...

Difficulty Starting 'on my 93 L300

The fuel is actually under suction between the tank and the Injection Pump, the IP drawing fuel as opposed to a pump in the tank pushing fuel, I believe. I certainly didn't get fuel spraying everywhere. Regardless, with the engine off, no fuel is moving. Yes, changing the fuel filter is an excellent...

Thoughts on the health of this beautiful Delica.

Hard to say without seeing it, but, if the rust is minimal (ie surface rust, NOT holes-in-the-floor rust) and the undercarriage is not too rusty (same idea), and it has been maintained well (especially the timing belt!!!) and you are remotely handy/adventurous/willing to learn in all things m...

What did you do TO your Delica today?

Finished up the horn button. A little Ipé, a little copper plate, a little bit of Corian counter-top material.
