      Dave 2000 reacted to FJ40Savvy's post in the thread Turn signal fast blink with Like Like.
      I have changed the four main ones with brand new ones and added some dielectric grease. The other two are in the gauge cluster? I have not changed those ones. I suspect I need to replace the flasher.

      If maintaining stock calipers, deleting LSPV would make your vehicle too rear biased in my opinion(potentially unsafe). You can maybe increase front rotor brake torque significantly and remove the LSPV and maybe be ok, but would still recommend a...

      Cool, but thought you were young to say to toss the ABS pump and/or LPV...

      Just a bump, as people are asking if the details are still available of this hard to bypass security device, the answer is yes and all in a simple PDF file, I need an email address to be able to send it as it would not attach to a PM, so you just...

      Tried changing all six bulbs with a new set? Regards Dave

      Dave 2000 reacted to HillCountryTX's post in the thread HDJ81 Fusible Links with Like Like.
      Thanks @cgmud , as always. To share what I've run into: I've done a bunch of research into making my own HDJ81 fusible links and, like you point out, there are several aspects you have to get right to ensure you have a properly protected...

      dead fan clutch, before starting that day it should have been hard to rotate.

      If it was only that simple! When cold the silicone settles at the bottom of the coupling creating drag, once spinning you will hear the roar when you first start the engine, the fluid is then distributed around the coupling and then the roar...

      Just to make it clear about my setup. When driving the two batteries are connected together, so 12 volts. Switching off the engine and the two batteries remain connected together for a number of hours or days depending on draw for example, with...

      Just the starter see's the 24 volts, glow plugs and everything else is 12v. Regards Dave

      Dave 2000 reacted to Outsane's post in the thread FJ80 cabin air intake with Like Like.
      A few easy tweaks and I think this will be ready. It's designed to be installed by sliding it over the fan intake, without needing to cut anything. Next step is to decide on a good filter material I can cut out with the laser cutter. This...

      Dave 2000 reacted to SmokingRocks's post in the thread FJ80 cabin air intake with Haha Haha.
      So two questions, 1. did your wife help you with arts and crafts time or do you just have very well-kept fingernails? (Edit I missed your note about the 11 year old future Mugato) 2. did you install from the bottom, like fisting the beret up...

      I do not know the actual figure, but can say they would obviously cover an 80 that is fully loaded and allow for a safety factor. As an aside, they look good, they have an offset that allows for safety in fitment and the way the...

      Dave 2000 replied to the thread Battery Terminal Blocks.
      Good find, I use the cube fuses on my battery terminals, they were IIRC an idea from Mercedes? Either way they make a good last line of defense. Regards Dave

      Dave 2000 reacted to 80JDM's post in the thread Battery Terminal Blocks with Like Like.
      I have harvested the brass battery terminals from German cars at the scrap yard. They are simply superb quality in my opinion. The fastener mechanism is durable and very tight on the battery post and will not deform the terminal clamp. Also BMW...

      I hope they havent left the exhaust camshaft sub−gear to main gear service bolt in place. If you remove the valve cover you will see it.

      Dave 2000 replied to the thread Inclined FJ80.
      I cannot read the whole thread properly so it may have been mentioned? Spring height when out of the vehicle has no relation to spring tension whatsoever assuming they are the same, it could simply be a bad spring that was cut wrong, missed or...

      This would not be the first rebuild I have seen done where they say they have checked the rod ends, rod bearing 'crush' is critical as is a decent build lube, as above trailer it to the shop and see what they say. Regards Dave

      Dave 2000 reacted to COYS's post in the thread Fresh rebuild strange knock with Like Like.
      No offense, but this reads like an odd duck of a commissioned engine job. They seem to arbitrarily mix and match OEM parts with likely Chinese aftermarket parts? When they do mention Toyota in the parts sheet, they don’t even take care to...

      Dave 2000 reacted to ceylonfj40nut's post in the thread Fresh rebuild strange knock with Like Like.
      Did they use all OEM parts? They did a lot. This will be hard to diagnose. Best is to take it to them and ask them. Trailer it over. Do not drive it. Do you do the install into truck and start up or did they? If you did it, be mindful that they...
    • Dave 2000
      Of course someone had to ask, and to be fair regardless of who does it is a ridiculous question, this is completely subjective, how do you allow for the environment the car is used in? This is much in the same way a tosser of a mechanic tells a...
    • Dave 2000
      I would just like to throw something in here, miles are miles and running times are two different things. If you simply drove your car around motorways, 'A' roads and so forth then yes miles are miles. If you commute on a daily basis and spend...

      @BILT4ME [ Dave, It appears that your rear heater has been bypassed. There is a tee on the left side of your pic that tees and has a hose that goes down and to the firewall (bulkhead) then to a hard line to go under the driver's seat. On the...

      U-joints. My rear driveshaft sounded like a dying cat when in reverse. I pulled the rear driveshaft and locked the center diff to isolate the sound and confirm the rear driveshaft had a bad u-joint. I pulled the u-joint apart and found the...
