      Is it supposed to be the original engine? Engine type will be on the data plate. You could also grab the VIN off the data plate and stick it in here: MegaZip - Genuine OEM Parts From Japan, USA, UAE | Online Store - https://www.megazip.net/...

      FZJ80 fuel consumption is akin to 'fight club'........

      Funny how different countries have different views on the same things. Here in Oz I reckon a knowledgeable jury would side with the 1FZ over the 2UZ for reliability and longevity. IMO, while the V8 rumble is great, and no doubt the 2UZ with...

      I've never had a screen 'glued' in but have always sealed them myself using a butyl-rubber based windshield mastic (NOT silicone). On the installed screen simply run a bead under the rubber on the glass side, and under the rubber on the body...

      When you bleed the brakes are you at least disconnecting the LSPV and bleeding with it fully up, and again with it fully down? I always found I couldn't get a full bleed without these extra steps.

      On the subject of aluminium door cards, would they blister a knee on a hot day?

      No problem @Manhatten. I figured if I spelled out the options it'd convince you to just cover it with a mat. Though a carpet offcut would have cost less...... ;) And I'm missing the exact same seat mount cover as you!

      CLEAN: First thing I'd do is remove it from the vehicle. I wouldn't be comfortable using potentially caustic cleaning products near vehicle sheetmetal. As you've not had success with 'regular' carpet cleaners, time to get...

      Exactly the same issue with mine. The latch on the bonnet (hood...) is worn around 30% through. It's not a replaceable part so I will be cracking out the welder as you've done.

      I drove mine for around 3 months sans front shaft due to a noisy diff. As you say, loss of drive to the front was certainly noticeable when driving briskly in corners. Upside was a lot less driveline backlash (manual transmission) and a slight...
    • beatle_bayly
      A part time kit would also include (un)locking hubs which would further reduce drag on the front. Just pulling the shaft sees the axles and diff still being 'driven' by the front wheels.

      If you find you still can't sleep......... loosen the screws, pull the trim back a few mm, and inject some windshield sealing mastic into the gap. Pull the trim back against the pillar to allow the mastic to settle in place, then retighten the...

      Oh, and the wheels in your OP were an Australian 'dealer-fit' option. They are 16" dia. Toyota AU specified them as Royale, manufactured by ROH. The Royale was available in zero offset for our 105s, and -60 for our 100s. It was later available...
    • beatle_bayly
      100s offset is -60. 105 offset is zero. Here in Oz the later 70 series GXL provides a good choice of dished factory alloys to fit straight on to a 105. 16" dia. However, if you fit factory zero-offset 105/76/78/79s wheels to a 100s they...

      Sleep well and move on. The rivets/screws hold the side trims, not the glass. I've seen a few 100s operating quite well minus the side trims entirely (with the rivet holes filled). Screws are not the best solution, but AFAIK Toyota only make...

      OPs vehicle is a turbodiesel. Only the one head, and no plugs.... :) I'm assuming your HDJ has an EGR pipe? That's located at the back of the engine. Check it for leaks both ends, and for cracks. Check all the inlet and turbo ducting for...

      https://www.lcool.org/technical/diffs/diffs.html The link above explains it succinctly. Ignore the fact that it's written for the 80 series, the function is the same for the 100s.

      Manage to make up some side brackets to support the top drawer to clear the fridge slide so it’s usable. Will try to finish another bracket and mount via the old seat mounting holes for support. Got the rear carpet all dry and ready for install.

      Good to see you are using the 3rd row seat bolt holes to secure the base, particularly as both drawers and their contents will now be held by half as many fasteners as the side-by-side configuration.. The instructions suggest using the tiedown...

      Youtube consulted, vinyl purchased :cool: I'll be wrapping the window frames and B-pillar but leaving the chrome strip immediately below the glass.

      beatle_bayly replied to the thread Migaloo the white Turbo 80.
      In case you don't have the instructions....... to get the drawers out, pull the top decks off (remove all tiedown points and any screws around the top edges), then remove the internal bump stops. Be careful; the stainless screws are crap quality...

      I see many newer cars use vinyl adhesive rather than paint on the blacked-out sections (no-doubt cheaper to build). I might try that instead of paint (100% reversible).

      beatle_bayly replied to the thread Migaloo the white Turbo 80.
      Stainless extension is fine. Stronger than it looks. But wait till it's on special. I think RRP was $75 and I snagged it for $60, but I see RRP today is $99. I ran some adhesive draft seal under the shelf where it sits inside on the drawer...
