Hi after my recent problem I think I a going to see if I can get another car the weekend †Crying or Very sadCrying or Very sad so I need what to do with Delica! Think to help my decision if any body wants any parts of it let me know via PM, every thing works as it should apart from engine and drivers door window motor does like to put window up. It had a new radio surround when I bought it two new Tyres and a new expansion tank a while back. It is silver and most panels are very good condition Please be aware parts a in Mid Wales. Photos are not a problem.

Whoa, hold up.

From your writing, and others like myself, seem to think your oil leak problems can be easily solved.

Even a rear crank seal blown is "Not the end of the world" tho it would be the most expensive repair job.

Please persevere with diagnosis. Just about ALL "top end" oil leaks can be cheaply and easily repaired.

The window not going up is usually sticky window channels.
often cured by a squirt of WD 40, or something similar. Sometimes caused by dirty switch contacts.

If you have a garage it is possible to do your own rear crankshaft seal repair.

I did mine, in Spain, with just a small borrowed jack, some bricks to put the front wheels on and the assistance of somebody with stronger arms than I.

For the window channels I use a teflon spray regularly, also use it on the sliding door guides, it's amazing the difference it makes.

At least your new ride is Japanese.

You will miss a number of feelings from abandoning your Delica :-

That strange feeling of accomplishment when you reach your destination.

The feeling of satisfaction felt after a journey were nothing fell off the truck.

That odd feeling felt before a journey, wondering if your going to get there.

Going where others Can't go, even though the feeling is muted as you are the only one there.

Being proud and content at getting 20miles to a £fiver.

Talking to your truck as though it is a person, "COME ON you can do it."....."don't LET ME DOWN NOW ! " Embarassed

Being content rolling around the floor, spanners in hand, trying to convince yourself it is worth it.

Being chased by children asking for an ice-cream. Rolling Eyes

Knowing that your friends, family and neighbour's think that you are not a full Shilling. Laughing

You will miss these feelings and more, they only come with Delica ownership, no other marque can bring such happiness. Shocked

Enjoy your SoftRoader, but don't off road it as its primary function shopping and the school run. Wink

Thanks guys Yoza tbh the Delica was absolutely perfect in my 14 years and saved me so many times in so many ways towed my broke down cars gave me some where to sleep when my tent and boat broke down and still will only believe it is going when I break it to the point of no return, but very very early days but enjoying a v6 petrol at the moment and biggest engine I have ever had excluding a small block chevy I had in a boat once Razz Also never had a cvt transmission before but very smooth.
You must have an L300 Laughing  Laughing

Actually, they look like a really nice piece of kit, even if not really suitable for a camper conversion. Enjoy.
