1993 L300 Pre-Purchase Inspection HELP

A 4D56 should idle at 750rpm. There's an idle increase knob beside the steering column- twist it to unlock, to make sure it's not just stuck on. The main thing to look out for is rust in the A-pillar, windscreen surround, and roof- especially around a sunroof/crystal lite glass. If there's rust in t...

ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

Go for it! I'd use plastic instead of cardboard, or wax/grease the cardboard so it releases cleanly. Did you notice how he very carefully never showed the back side of any of the bushes? I bet they're a mess of ugly stuck-on cardboard. :-) My only concern would be that they might end up transmitting...

Coolant dripping near oil filter

Assuming you've ruled out the obvious sources (tired radiator hoses, head gasket leak, thermostat housing) the usual suspect is the heater pipe-to-water pump O-ring. Between the exhaust manifold and the block you'll find a steel pipe which runs around the back of the block to the heater hoses. That ...

Hopefully a Delica owner by next week

Fuel economy on the 3l V6 isn't great, 16-20mpg (about 13l/100km). It's a very heavy van with the aerodynamics of a brick.

Windshields Available in Calgary

Front and rear windscreens are all the same whether high- or low-roof. The US market* Mitsubishi Van and Wagon use the same glass, so that might give you some other options.

*Yes I know Canada isn't the USA. Sorry.

Starter Motor Issues

Hah! the pinhole leak is a classic. I had an MG that ran fine until it got hot, then started misfiring until it stopped. Clearly an electrical/spark misfire. Replaced the coil and condenser (they can fail when hot). Replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and leads. Spark plugs. Points. Checked all the...

Starter Motor Issues

Before you go spending all the moneys, try a couple of tests for me? l300_12v_egr_hyundai_mitsubishi_starter_motor_m2t56181_js344_16853_1_year.jpg Make sure it's in neutral. Using one side of a pair of jumper leads, apply 12V to the small spade terminal (A, red) If the starter runs, you have a wirin...

L300 Automatic and Manual = same engine?

^What he said. All same, though you'll have to swap a few minor things from one engine to the other depending on which direction you're going. Flywheel/flex plate, kickdown linkage, ... err... I think that's it actually!

Glow Plug/Starter Issue for a Newbie

The ignition lock is probably easy- the switch on the back of the lock can just fall out. Remove the steering column trim and I bet you'll find the electrical part of the ignition barrel is dangling. The usual fault is the black contacts section comes unclipped and falls out- you can usually just cl...

Leaking Fuel Tank

The two tanks are completely different shapes, and have different connections. The front tank is rectangular, the rear tank is squarer but deeply scalloped to avoid the driveshaft. http://www.delica.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?f=91&t=17225 ...I'm guessing you haven't tried sticking your head under the va...

Shift lever linkage

The bit about the linkage being under the steering column is odd- is it a column shift manual? Wait.. it's an L400 not an L300 isn't it. Big blobby thing, flat floor between the front and rear seats? The last L300 Chamonix was a 1993, the last 4WD L300s were made in 2000 and they were GL grade (thou...
