what did you do WITH your delica today

This is kind of in between TO and WITH, but I bought one of those Electric Lunch Boxes, that will run off a cigarette lighter, and tested it out today. I had a hot meal sitting in the jump seat, with the sliding door open, next to a park, in the rain. I think I drove maybe 45 minutes with it plugged...

L300 Combination Switch.

On the way home my dash lights didn't go on when I turned on the headlights. Uh oh. I checked the forum and found this post. Good info that if the dash lights don't go on and the tail lights don't go on, it's probably the Combination Switch. Followed Falco's post and got it working again. Here's wha...

Oil Pan Leaking

You know what? This wasn't an oil pan gasket leak after all. This was the hint of the beginning of the Massive Oil Leak! Be afraid, be very afraid.

And check out my Massive Oil Leak post for more details.

On the verge of becoming a proud new owner... HOWEVER

Smoke upon startup and under heavy load sounds like trouble...however, I had white smoke on startup, and it proved a simple fix: the exhaust was sucking in fresh air past the gasket. If it's black smoke, or blue smoke could be way worse trouble and $$$. Front tire wear sounds like worn out shocks. E...

Where to get bushings? L300

Yeah, I've had that experience at parts counters, when they realize the Delica isn't in their computer: "What make?" "Mitsubishi" "What model?" "Delica L300" "What year?" "1994" Then they kind of freeze up, like a bug that's been crawling around on a window too long. Or they start chuckling absent-m...

Glow Plug/Starter Issue for a Newbie

Yeah, genuine Mitsubishi starter relays are ridiculously expensive. Coombs County Auto said they would sell me one for $335. Check out my post on modifying a $10 relay for use in the Delica: http://www.delica.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15921&p=122086&hilit=relay#p122086 Oh, and welcome aboard as a...

Found a Great Place for Used Tires!

One of my tires got a crack in the sidewall. This presented a surprisingly difficult problem. You can't put a new tire on, because it will be less worn that the other three, and hence will have a larger diameter. This can apparently wreak havoc with your transfer case in 4WD (though a lot of this so...

Would like to buy used Tires

I just got a split in the sidewall of a Yokohama Geolander P235 / 75 R15, so I'm looking for a used tire with similar wear to the rest of the set. I'm not sure how to gauge %age tread, but I've driven about 40,000km on these. I figure I've got about 2 more years before I have to buy new rubber all a...

Delica in Clearwater

I had technical problems in Clearwater last summer, and in the course of resolving them, I heard that there was a Delica owner living in Clearwater. Just wondering if you're active on this forum.

What did you do TO your Delica today?

I replaced the clear, aftermarket tail lights that came with the van with stock ones.

Automatic Car Washes

I found the automatic car washes don't do a good job on vans; They're designed for sedans. I feel like I spent eight bucks and still need to wash my van.

I bought a truck brush and a bucket, for when I can't find a truck wash.

There's also these things called Helicoils. You drill the hole larger, cut threads with the supplied tap, then insert this stainless steel spring to end up with threads the original size.

What did you do TO your Delica today?

I swapped out the aftermarket, clear-lens tail lights that came with it and put in some stock lights, with regular amber turn signals.
