Re: How to get the oil filter out??

Be sure to give us northerners (Josh and I) a shout when you are in Smithers. I am interested in looking at an L400 as is a friend of mine. Not many up here yet.

(BTW It really isn't that cold up here :-D )

Re: Rear sway bar. Who got one and who didn't from the factory ?

No sway bar on a 1990 P24 Exceed. Have the axle wrap preventers - they may be useful when the turbo goes on 8-) Hate sway bars, I tend to agree they make little difference. Even in my lifted all coil Range Rover, the sway bars did little to reduce roll. One option I do see on some rides are factory ...

Re: Oops I did it again.

Hey Adam, I think they are 16x8. The tires do not touch the carpet as it is so high and the offset is pretty neutral. If you want to lift the van like mine here is what you should get (Since you have extended shackles we'll skip those): - front ball joint spacers ( a couple members may have some ava...

Re: Oops I did it again.

BFG says the 33 X 9.5 x 15 fits on a 6.5 to 7.5 inch rim. So if you have 7 inchers they work.

Re: Oops I did it again.

Adrock, You should be able to put 33 x 9.5 x 15's on the standard rim. I know that BFG still makes an All Terrain in that size. But it is difficult to get. On the other hand, my 16" rims were only $200 new. Gilbert, I saved the LSD rear off my wrecked van (a loaded up Super Exceed) with the intentio...

Re: Oops I did it again.

Thanks for the comments, we can do this to Adrock's just time and a few parts and tires. The tires are actually 265/75r16's, just a hair under 33 and 10.5" wide. I just drove 1300 km's yesterday to find my way to Red Deer. There were no issues on the highway, still need to trim the front fenders a b...

Oops I did it again.

Left the van out and it grew again. Managed to get the lift in, install my old LSD rear end, and put the 33's on. Here it is in comparison to Josh's. Josh has extended shackles, cranked bars, and 31's. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v253/docsavage/Delica/DSCF1030.jpg It was a handful in the stron...

Re: Winter Tire Suggestions

I don't feel there is any performance gain. On my work truck I run Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT's with studs. This is a similar tire tread on the same roads in vehicles with light back ends. On hard ice (we get lots of this here) the studded tires tend to slip more in braking as the studs lift the tire s...

Re: Winter Tire Suggestions

The answer to whether you need a dedicated set of winter tires depends upon where you live in the interior and depends on the typical winter driving conditions. If you only get wet snow that disappears fast, the all terrain tires are probably sufficient. If you live where the roads get ice buildup a...

Re: Starter compatibility

If it only spins occasionally on start attempts the likely culprit is a few broken teeth on the flywheel. The starter attempts to engage the flywheel which in turn turns over the engine, but the teeth are missing and it spins. My old Deli had that problem - Josh has a good embarrassing story about m...

Re: L300 - Looking for tranny dipstick

Just a guess as my gasser is manual, but that looks like it is behind the battery, and I believe Josh had to modify his battery box to get to the tranny dipstick. That square in the lower right looks like it has a battery terminal attached.

Re: Delica in Florida

The belts are as follows:

Power Steering - NAPA XL 9390
Alternator - NAPA XL 9400
Air Con- NAPA XL 9375

I believe the XL is just the NAPA brand. I have already done these on the gasser.

Re: Inside Passage

You managed to drive right past my old place on Chimney Lake Road (Large grey shop, small log house, large grey house, and brown double wide with 2 car garage halfway down Chimney Lake all owned by the same family) and not far from the new place in Houston and Josh's in Smithers. I was out fighting ...
