L300 electrical troubleshooting help

When using a wrench or any tool around the battery be careful. You don’t want to start welding.

L300 electrical troubleshooting help

Sounds like the positive terminal on your battery where the alternator attaches the should be a fuse too. Make sure everything is tight! If you can wiggle it by hand it’s not tight enough put a wrench on it.

Won't Cold Start

Maybe take some pictures of the engine and post them. You might have missed something with the glow plugs or earth strap when putting the head back together.

Electrical fail, car won't start or turn, blown fuse?

There's a fuse attached to the top of the red battery terminal. If your alternator is shorted that will blow. Try disconnecting the alternator plug and wire and replacing the fuse. Then drive it to a spot that you can get the alternator rebuilt at since your in San Francisco.

Fuel filter? Don't think that will help you. Maybe try running low sulfur diesel if your not already.

Make sure you blow the black smoke out before they do. If they blow it out it's bound to fail. What I use to do is take it on a highway and step on it to blow the black smoke out. Don't rev it pass 3000 as that's not good for the engine but I guess a little past is ok for a short amount of time. Als...

L300 Rear-ended on the I5

The back cover comes off the tailgate easy. A couple of screws and some clips to get to the latch mechanism. It might be just the latch need to be pride up but it sounds like it could be more than that.

Another seat belt question regarding the L300

I religiously keep my rpms below 3000 and have had my delica for over 10 years. Also I add stanadyne lubricity at every fill up because a fuel pump is expensive and low sulfur diesel will ruin it. Sorry got off track on the thread.

Another seat belt question regarding the L300

I think they were introduced in mid 1991. I had a 1991 that was early 91 and installed them myself. I bought them from a delica being parted out. The bottom attachment is easy it's the shoulder roof bolt that's a bit of a pain.

Nothing going on right now. I wound definitely check out Vancouver island and especially tofino if your coming in October. I'll be there in early September but the surf will be better in October. Also it seems like tofino is the delica capital of the world.

Altimeter, Inclinometer Pod Connection and Power?

Anyone know where to get that plastic piece that covers the front screws on the gauge pod? Mine came off and went out the window on a turn.
