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...

Braved the Crow's Nest from Princeton to Van. The Deli showed her true spirit other than not staying warm enough on the downhill runs.

Re: Wet feet

AHH Standard L300 leaking. I had a similar problem. There should be a few old posts about it but it could be one of two things. The front window seal is leaking. Usually in the upper corners, that or, behind the front quarter panel. Behind it is a weld that seems to sometimes start to separate. The ...

Re: l300 vs l400 - crash safety

I, very recently, got the front of my '91 L300 clipped by another vehicle. I was doing around 50Kph and they were near dead-slow. The Bull bar ( or cactus-masher as we called them from where I used to live ) made a big diff. My left front corner is good and tagged (still drivable) but they got the w...

Re: 2nd Row seats

I'll start by mentioning the obvious: Which version of a Delica are you referring to? You mention L400 further along in the post so one can only assume that is the vehicle you are talking about. But I don't like assuming. In my L300 I like the Cpt. chairs in the middle as it makes for a more flexibl...

Re: What did you do TO your Delica today?

Sticky calliper pistons and worn pads are one thing, but if you let your rotors get buggered the price goes up significantly. The calliper removal is not so difficult to do (I did mine in the driveway), you will get dirty though. There would be some cost savings if you can remove them and then get s...

Re: What did you do TO your Delica today?

Did the front brakes on ShaunVanRamen. A few weeks ago my mechanic said I was good for another 5-10,000km. But to my horror, half-way back from Abby, every time I braked there was a terrible grinding sound coming from the front. Once home I took off the left front tire - brakes were OK. Still plenty...

Re: What did you do TO your Delica today?

Needed new wiper blades, so I decided to repaint those rusty/corroded wiper arms. Was also noticing that the mirror arms were looking bagged as well. While sanding the mirror arms I couldn't help but notice how little finish they had. A few rubs with some 600grt and I was down to bare metal. Mask of...
