L400 engine mileage

I agree with Falco - even in the summer let her warm up. But most recently (in Princeton) over the holidays at -18c it took 20-30 min. to get her warm. And that was after a dozen or so cranks of the starter to get her fired up. I'm just glad I put in a fresh battery last year - that definitely helps...

Re: What did you do TO your Delica today?

Front ball joints, brake rotors and pads and new shoes (tires) all the way round.
OUCH$!!!!!

Runs like a treat now.

Changed from Yokohama's to the OK Tire Black Lions. Quite a softer ride and handle the pavement just as well at 2/3rds the price.

Re: What did you do TO your Delica today?

Had the front brake callipers replaced. I knew one side was sticking and had no time to do it myself. Good thing as I found out I also need front bushings. 173,000km. GO figure!

Left or Right door?
If the left, I might have some parts you need.

Re: L300 Left door and bumber, step

Unfortunately not. It was in pretty cruddy shape so it got ditched. I'll check for the handle and get back to you.

Re: APRIL 10th - Tailgate Sale / Delica Meet, 10AM @ IKEA Co

According to my calendar April 10 is a Friday. Not sure about everyone else but I work on Fri. (and Sat. for that fact.)

Just curious if it was planned for a Fri?

L300 Left door and bumber, step

Recently I got my van fixed and have some spare bits. The left door was damaged externally, but the internals are good (window motor, door lock, window glass) - Take the whole thing. Also have the front bull bar (bent but fixable) and 2 right / one left step in good condition. Also showing the body ...

Re: what did you do WITH your delica today

I took ShawnVanRamen to the Deli hospital as I got hit in the front left last December and I finally found all the parts I needed. Everything is fixed now and some fresh paint. I do have some spare bits that I will post shortly, if anyone needs a bent bush bar, front steps or a left door (internals ...

Re: Our Delica's Service History?

ATEB in Burnaby as recommended by the previous owner of the van. Great guys, friendly and they know diesels. Plus it's a 5 min. walk to my work so easy drop off/pick up.

Re: Air Sound

I use the o/d button on my L300 quite often. I judge use by my RPM. Turning off the o/d raises the RPM around 300-400. So I don't use it if I'm close to redline. Running down hills I turn it off (o/d) before my speed picks up. I use that to maintain downhill speed. Also, if you can read your manual ...

Re: Our Delica's Service History?

Ohh! A Crystal Lite, I'm jealous. If you're not sure of service history, it may be worth spending the $$'s and having some things done either way (I say this as a guy that works at a motorcycle shop). That way you know when they were done and can start regular maintenance accordingly. Some things wi...

Lost Gas Cap - Husky Gas

I saw the following at the Husky on East 12th Ave & Lakewood.
It can only belong to a deli (I think).
I left it atop the pump in case the owner comes back for it.

Re: EPK Video

Phil - Love your Uke. I took it up just over a year ago. (Hadn't played any instrument since grade school). Me thinks we need to come up with a Deli song for the Uke. Here is our attempt at a Tom Jones classic. https://plus.google.com/u/0/103148442383232902926/posts/bVnEFZiR6tJ?pid=61044094289422273...
