Re: CV Boot Rubbing on Lower Control Arm

The lower ball joint was one of my original suspects. It "appears" to be seated correctly, threads protruding and cotter pin hole lined up. I did take the pin out to graunch another flat to line up with the hole, it was tight. Here is a close up pic:

Re: CV Boot Rubbing on Lower Control Arm

The new boot is slightly longer but the outer diameter is still the same.

Re: Tis' The Season - Hard Starting

New glow plugs installed and fired up nice and quick at 0C. Looks like one bad plug and light corrosion can cause issues.

CV Boot Rubbing on Lower Control Arm

Hello All It all started with both inner boots torn. I sourced all four boots, pulled the axles, installed the boots, and reinstalled the axles. Now the outer boot protector sleeve is rubbing the lower control arm on both sides. I did notice that there was very little clearance before I got started ...

Re: EGT level at 120kph

Here's my EGT at 100 km/h.

Approximately 800 degrees F at 2300 rpm on a flat run. 2" lift with 31" mud (not all-terrain) tires. Pre-turbo (EGR blanking plate) installation. 9psi boost. Coolant temp is a little on the cool side. After changing the thermostat I will post back.

Re: Tis' The Season - Hard Starting

Thanks for the input Phil. I'm pretty sure when the new plugs are installed that she will light off pretty quick.

Off topic, do you have any pics of your van on the site? If so whats the thread?
Would be nice to have an Ontario Delica meet someday. If you are ever in the K-W area, give me a shout!

Re: Tis' The Season - Hard Starting

Thanks for the reply Big-Bird That's exactly what I did before putting them back in, cleaned the bus bar and power lead with scotchbright. I have the injectors on my to do list, I want to see how she starts with the new plugs first. It did start a little easier this morning, probably due to the bus ...

Re: Future Starwagon Owner

Hello fellow Delica fans, I finally got my Delica last week and have had a huge smile on my face every time I drive, look, or talk about her. It's such a fun and unique vehicle to drive. It's definitely not a racing machine and I have the essentials installed such as an EGT gauge, boost gauge, and a...

Re: Future Starwagon Owner

Based on a quick google search I assume you are referring to the Wankel engine or helicopter pilot. No to both. The name actually comes from Seinfeld. An Ontario meet would be great if someone could organize it. If you are ever in the K-W area, please feel free to contact me.

Re: Future Starwagon Owner

Hello All Craig from Bonsai Rides came through for me!! It was a long search and not too many Starwagons coming up for auction. She is a 1996 Active World Edition with 105000 km. She is very clean and well maintained with a recent timing belt change. I got lucky and got one with a roof basket and la...
