Re: Battery Advice

I'm just going through the same thing, looking for a new battery for my 94 L400. I decided to go with a group 34 yellow top optima. Pricey but I wanted something reliable that could handle a bit of "deep cycle" type use. Going with the single battery will free up space for another deep cycle battery...

Re: Buying a used L400

I was under the impression that the long wheel was 118" from axle to axle, and that the body was also longer...I ended up getting a LWB, very happy with it, it is enormous.

Re: L400 High Idle Switch

I have the series 1 L400 royal exceed. Ive found where the switch should be, just a plastic plug sitting there. Ill ask around for a switch, anyway I could get an aftermarket fast idle switch to work? Ive found plenty for diesel pickups....not sure if they would work though.

Re: L400 glow plug relay

What size are the electrical connections on that relay? I may need a new one and I really dont want to spend 170$ on a relay when I can get one for 20$. Trying to figure out exactly what I need. A 12V/100A relay with what size connections?

Thanks!

L400 High Idle Switch

Just got my Delica and am now looking to install a high idle switch to help with warming her up and those times when im sitting at idle. Ive been doing a lot of searching, so far i've gathered this: There is a solenoid on the IP I can hook into (Anyone have a picture?) I can remove one of the round ...

Re: Clouds of smoke...

Let us know how much it costs to install a new head with CCAutos. Knock on wood I wont have to for a long time, would be nice to know what i'd be looking at though.

Sorry about your head!

Re: My new L400

Thanks, im just sorting out lenses right now. Took the Deli for a burn down some rough trails yesterday, she did great! Never been so comfortable in the bush. I should have got one of these a long time ago!

Re: What should I look for if I want to buy a Delica?

Whats the thought on high mileage L400's? There is one I am interested in but it has nearly 200,000km on it, would cost me about half of what importing a similar model would. From what i've gathered it has all the preventative maintenance done and has been used in Canada for a few years now. Would l...

Re: What should I look for if I want to buy a Delica?

I don't have any experience or knowledge to offer but I am in the same boat as you. I am planning on getting a Delica from a dealer, CCAutos is close to me and has a great rep so thats who im going with. Like you I want a van that is in very good shape with all the preventative maintenance done. It ...

Can't decide - Gas or Diesel?

I know this has been covered before but I just can not decide. Should I go for a gas or diesel Delica? Ive test drove both versions and still cant decide. So far ive come up with these pros and cons: Gas: Quieter Quicker acceleration and higher top speed (not really a factor for me) Cheaper to maint...

Hopeful Delica Owner

Hello, I have wanted a delica for over 5 years now but have never been in the right situation for one until now. My old '93 Nissan Altima has finally bit the dust and its replacement time. :) I always wanted an L300 for the looks but have decided an L400 just makes more sense for me. (I live in Port...
