Re: spare key

First try, at a corner store (with the aptly put, "Key Cut Lottery" on the awning, ha ha) they said they didn't have a blank to match. 2nd try, my local hardware store, Coe Lumber, had a good assortment of blanks. As staff routinely ignore me for 20 minutes or more when I need help there, I had foun...

Re: Be honest...

Geese do it off to the side (forming V-shaped flocks) so that the wing of the bird ahead parts the air for the bird in behind's body to go through. Makes it much less work, except for the lead bird, and they trade off that role periodically. That's why they don't fly beak-to-bum, because there's gre...

Re: Be honest...

Yeah, and don't forget it's RHD too. You can't see oncoming traffic about to cross the centreline, so better make sure they can see you. Stay well back of the trucks. Theoretically, 7x the height of the truck, there's still turbulence, so it's breaking the wind for you even at that distance. You don...

Re: Water getting in the channels in your rear windows ?

People always park their cars in garages? I like to go out, even on rainy days. Street parking, you know. :)

Re: Sliding door won't open

Um...not sure if this is the same problem, but a couple of times I've had trouble with the interlock mechanism on the side of the door. It's a springy thing with two contacts, and I think it's supposed to prevent the door from locking if it's not fully shut, so you don't think it's safe when it isn'...

Re: L300 Stretch updates

Since you missed the group buy on the snorkel, have you talked to Butch at CVI? I was there about a month ago, and he had an L300 parts vehicle out front that had a snorkel.

Re: delica mileage vs domestic

Hi, not sure how helpful I can be, as I have an L300 diesel. I get 11L/100km, though I've been told that's high consumption, and I should be getting more like 8L/100km. Other owners report similar consumption here: http://www.delica.ca/forum/mileage-1838.html The advantage of the L300 is it has a 4c...

Meh, if you've considered it and it seems fine, it probably is. If you're ever in a situation where it becomes an issue, the adrenaline will boost your strength 20% anyway. Main thing is that you understand what's going on, so you're not adding confusion to an already difficult situation. Say, while...

Diesel Fuel Cetane Ratings

"It’s generally accepted that the higher a diesel fuel’s cetane rating, the better the fuel will burn...the United States has some of the lowest cetane rated fuel in the world." Presumably this affects Canuck diesel similarly. http://www.dieselpowermag.com/news/1209dp_what_is_cetane/ Since most of o...

Re: Bull Bars

I read somewhere that the L300 was designed without bull bars, and they didn't think it looked quite right. So they dressed it up with bull bars, purely for aesthetics.

Re: Bling!

Apparently manufacturers choose steering wheel sizes based on the minimum required to steer the car if the power steering fails. Same with brakes; they're designed to be hard, but still stop the car without power assist. You might want to test your steering, rolling down a gentle hill with the engin...
