Does your Mitsubishi L300 make a strange noise? Need wheel alignment specs?

Timing belt change

Post by meesh » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:27 pm

I have a L300 diesel 94 starwagon...
For some reason the belts it calls for are tb 0091 and bal belt tb 0092...
However the tb92 is too big...
Has anyone else had this issue?
Rocky mtn is saying that year of delica uses 2 different belts than tb91 and tb92, so how is it possible my van has been running for 10 yrs with the wrong belt? Anyone know?

For this, and your other query about part numbers, you're going to need this website here: https://mitsubishi.epc-data.com/delica_star_wagon/

So if you enter your chassis number in the "search for parts by frame number" field (P25W0808553 from your info- thanks for putting that in!) you'll get this page: https://mitsubishi.epc-data.com/delica_ ... 08553&ref=

...which you'll bookmark, because it's the genuine Mitsubishi parts manual for *your van*. It even lists your options, interior, and manufacture date so you know it's got the correct vehicle.

Now go to Engine, then Camshaft and Valve, click on the item you want (03110 BELT, VALVE TIMING) and you'll get part number MD306981. (Original part number was MD300470, but it's no longer available, hence the replacement part number being listed below it).

Throw "MD306981" (or even MD300470) into Google to find generic replacements, or order a genuine one from Amayama.com.

(For the balance belt you'll need the "balancer" section, which says MD310484 (old number MD300473). Throwing that into Google says a Gates 5436XS belt is the same. I don't know what brand uses part numbers like "TB92".
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.
