Hello from st.john's Newfoundland

Wood inside makes it nice.
A good set of tires.
Coffee & Beer holders.
and a mascot of some kind.

I also have a converter so the Christmas lights will be added soon.

L300 written off

Sad to hear but glad you're on the heal.

I've had my '91 hit twice in the past 5 years - both the left door for some reason. Every time I wonder if it'll get fixed or written off.

Take care and keep practicing the MitsuMaple wave - Even from an L400.

1993 L300 Pre-Purchase Inspection HELP

As an employee in the motorcycle biz that use to sell used bikes: Ask if there is any service history. I believe all the belts should be replaced at 120,000km. If you're inclined to crawl underneath, look at shocks for wear (leakage), on my L300 the rubber mounts at the back of the tranny were getti...

Alignment in East van?

You need to get the alignment specs for you van. Most places only have Cdn based vehicles in their computer systems.
If you can find the specs I think many places should be able to do it. The key word "IF".

Delica or Pajero Diesel for Calgary Weather??

I'll concur with a Deli in the cold. A proper battery set-up helps as well. in -10c mine would start but it always took 10+ attempts. They key is letting it warm up properly and keeping it warm. I invested a few bucks on a piece of sheet metal and made what I call a "Winter Damn" that I mount down l...

ICBC Approved Auto Body Shops

I'm taking my van to M3 Collision in Richmond. They've worked on Delicas before and have no hang-ups about JDM's. Most of what I need is panel fixing not parts replacement.

I'll post before and afters when complete.

ICBC Approved Auto Body Shops

Well, I've recently had my L300 smacked on the left door. Got the claim and got a list of shops from the Corp. Before making dozens of calls... Does anyone know an approved autobody shop (in the Vancouver/Burnaby area) that deals with Deli's? I was searching here and the few leads I found no longer ...

New Deli From Japan

A friend in Japan found it and my lovely wife was there at the same time so it was pretty easy. I just had to wait a few weeks for her return.
The model was about $25

Manual glow plug switch schematic for super quick system

I think it was around $140 with the shipping. And a reasonably quick turn around.

Manual glow plug switch schematic for super quick system

A little searching will get you this info. Yeah! I suppose you can by-pass, which a lot of owners do, but I had the same issue a few years back and went to Daniel (Victoria) W1ng Elec. He solved the issue and it was reasonable. My issue was leaking diodes. I think it would be better to get it back t...

Recommendation for brake work

Lazy Green, Shingo Auto (Burnaby) does all my work, from oil changes to... are you ready... Front upper/lower ball joints and frnt brake rotors. Honestly (I don't know about the L400's) but for my L300 they were $70-80 each. So replaced as one of mine was too far gone to turn. That seems pretty chea...

Recommendation for brake work

Fix it before it gets worse.
Shingo Auto in Burnaby can do the work but you may have to supply the parts.
