*Post up what you did to/in/with your Delica today from mods to oil change to driving to teh beach to hauling wood. Stealing this thread idea from Minitrucktalk.com as it is an entertaining thread that just keeps going and going and going...
Today (and by today I mean last week) I had a custom...
Changed the transmission oil, transfer case oil and rear differential sludge...might have been original...
Somehow I forgot to get oil for the front axle...don't judge me, I'm new to all this :shock:
There is a JDM vehicle on a site and there is a picture of this. Anyone know what it is or what it does?
They're switches for the electric windows, on a car that wasn't engineered for electric windows- probably a Kei car. Underneath that housing is the electric window motor, driving the original manual window mechanism instead of a winder handle.
just noticed canola oil at costco is now cheaper than diesel. anyone running svo in a stock delica l400. was thinking of trying it during the summer when its hot. was thinking of running it up to 50% max
Strange topic but I was hoping to hear if anyone has experience going through an automatic car wash with their rigs. Recently moved deep into the city and common access to a hose bib has become impossible. Even a self-service is far enough away to be difficult.
I was planning on removing the rack...
My only advice here is to avoid the kind with the rollers that go up and over the windscreen and roof- they don't see the passenger side mirror on JDM 4WDs, and attempt to scrape it off the A-pillar. It's not fun to watch.
( btw I am new to cars but very eager to learn) My Delica won't start! So I was having troubles yesterday on starting the car, but quickly figured out the usefulness of the throttle knob next to my steering wheel, and all was fine. Sadly today came with more starting issues at first the car was...
It's been a while since a didn't post. Last spring we did a trip to Lapland with our L300 but as said in the title, my wife took the van and broke two of the four roof side glasses with the roof rack...
I tried to order new ones on sites like megazip but they are out of stock and...
I just threw up a bit in my mouth. Looks like a good excuse to chop the roof and install a pop top!
Just had my turbo head south on me. Does anybody know the upgrade or comparable part. I thought I read somewhere that a turbo from a Subaru would match up given the triangular at the adapter plate. Has anyone done this swap? Had success and has it been better in the long run?
Mine is a 94 L400 2.8...
Im a proud owner of a 96 L400 S1 LWB V6 (6G72). I'd like to know what I NEED to do, at a minimum, to replace the exhaust, or portions of the exhaust system. I know there are sensors in the exhaust system, potentially pre-and-post catalytic converter? Can anyone confirm? Is it possible to remove the...
search catalytic convertor. I put in a post in about cleaning out your cat. Or better still replace it, check out Rockauto for replacements. Of course it's illegal and dangerous with all the carbon monoxide and aldehydes a gas engine creates so I can't recommend running without a cat.
After fitting air shocks to the rear of my van, which slightly stiffen the rear suspension, I've been thinking that the front suspension is way too soft.
The Japanese market L300 4WD wagon (P25/35W) has 20mm diameter torsion bars on the front suspension. Light springs like these make for a...
Ah, sorry, I totally misunderstood your post. You're right, the relationship between bump stop height and body height can't change unless you change the bump stops or alter the suspension pivot points. Your measuring must be as reliable as my memory ;-)
So I'm new to delica. I just bought a 94 spacegear. Super in love with it an got a screaming deal on it!
However there was some serious things needing to be fixed on it..
Found a mechanic in the Vancouver area who is very knowledgeable and comfortable with delicas..
But being new to this vehicle I...
It might help if the shop can break down the cost into parts and labour. You might feel better about it anyway. Mechanics shop rate here is over $100 an hour, probably higher in Vancouver due to rent bring higher etc. You could save some and do the easy stuff like rotors and pads yourself as well....
In the search of finding a used/new pop-up roof for my super amazing low roof L300... If anyone has a tip for me don't be shy and share the love! :-D
I was at a Folk Festival this past weekend with several VW Vans & Busses. A friend was there who put a Westfalia pop top from the late 70's on his diesel Eurovan. This guy is super skilled and would be the guy I'd have to help me with my L300 conversion.
I have recently bough my first car! A beautiful 1991 L300 Super Exceed!
I am super excited for the future that we have together.
Also very VERY VERY commited to running my L300 on WVO or Biodiesel. I am currently leaning towards getting a plant drive kit, I have used the search bar to look for posts about it, but if anybody with more info that would like to share knowledge — that would be greatly appreciated :)
My Delica is on Haida Gwaii and I'm in Vancouver and I need a battery for it. ***Single battery setup on a Diesel.
I've been searching the forums and it seems like there's lots of info for dual batteries and I'm guessing they're not the same for a single.
I don't have access to the vehicle to...
