Recommendation for brake work

Thinner rotors warp faster. Years ago I was told delica rotors are ground by very few places because of the center hub size. A friend of Mardy refaced a front rotor for me but I buy new rotors now. love to hear your experience with this. The problem with rebuilding calipers lies with replacement rub...

Hi I am Wrongway I Bought one

WW Welcome aboard. You probably know all this but... The 4x4 blinking light is only cosmetic, affects nothing at all so can be lived with.

Recommendation for brake work

Unfortunately there seems no solution for caliper problems on the delicas or garages that have a lasting solution. The pistons seize in the cast bodies and stick so you drag the brakes on the rotor (noise). Sometimes it's a question of chicken or egg but you end up changing the calipers, rotors, and...

front suspension bushings ?

I use febest for a lot of my deli "rubber" parts. Go to their web site and explore what they carry, then look on Ebay for their product.

Fair price plus postage unless you can pick ...

2000 V6 Delica 6g72 Head gasket job/kit

I found an interesting You tube video on when not to change the head gasket. It goes through, seemingly, all the tests you could do troubleshooting head gasket symptoms so you don't change it when not needed. Called "Schrodingers Box" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVn-IDi7da8 He also lists a bunch...

2000 V6 Delica recommended maintenance

Did you lose cooling fluid or overpressure the cooling system ? I can't see any bubbles in my cooling bottle, too difficult to see in it. just curious cuz I've developed a slight overheating issue as well. i may be a little paranoid but I'm monitoring it.

Cam shaft thrust O rings leak?

I have to ask why this work wasn't done before you bought the L400? Did you buy from the Japanese auction block or a dealer? There's lots of initial import repairs that need be done when bringing in a vehicle from outside the US. Headlights, alignment, tires, brakes and inspection all need be done b...
