    H55f & 1HZ left hand drive vs right hand dr

    I have a rhd h55f/transfercase in my lhd. There wasn’t any speedo issues nor differences in fitment/installation. I have never heard that about the speedometer before, why would it turn the opposite direction? The only difference was the shifter was angled differently, to the rhd position. I...

    High Altitude Cold Starting - 3BII

    Happy that worked. Were you remote? No start situations in the middle of nowhere are terrifying. An idea came to me recently regarding this situation. With an auxiliary power supply you could direct a heat gun or blow dryer into the intake while you try to start. Is that silly? I don’t think...

    High Altitude Cold Starting - 3BII

    Returned from the trip a couple of days ago, no real problems with starting. Thank you all for the information and reassurance. I get neurotic about these things when I have passengers and have the only vehicle. The engine started on the normal glow cycle, the first time it missed for a few...

    Speedometer and temp not working in cluster

    Regarding the temp gauge not working, I had this issue when I first got my BJ70 with the same cluster you have. Replaced sensor and rewired, not fixed. While redoing the entire cooling system I discovered the thermostat was missing. The thermostat is necessary to get a reading on the temp gauge...

    High Altitude Cold Starting - 3BII

    Thanks again. So really just black smoke and less power. Luckily most of the high elevation driving will not be on a highway

    High Altitude Cold Starting - 3BII

    Thanks for the info guys. That gives me a lot more confidence. I'm going to Coyote Flat and the surrounding areas (eastern sierras), I believe the maximum altitude we'll hit on the route is 10,371' / 3,161m. I'll test the plugs before heading off and bring an extra set. I'll likely also bring...

    High Altitude Cold Starting - 3BII

    I will shortly be doing a 5 day trip at ~10,000ft elevation with a NA 3BII. Read through all of threads regarding running older toyota diesels at high elevation, expecting to possibly see smoke and have less power, but I'm more concerned with being able to restart the truck each morning. That is...

    more break power on a PZJ75

    I pulled a booster off a diesel townace truck (I think it was a '96 or '97) to replace mine when it went. I didn't research if it was better but it was a direct bolt in with no modifications. Braking was definitely stronger than before when the og booster wasn't leaking, but this doesn't...

    Where to buy suspension seat bases

    Yes, that is real and required a lot of tweaking for me before I got it right. Ie it is not set to my body weight, but for a slightly heavier person. I find my position stays more level while cornering and a lot of dampening to my spine on bumps - helps mostly on really long off road trips...

    Where to buy suspension seat bases

    Post a wanted ad in the diesel/Jdm section of classifieds. I got a pristine, complete set for $500 only a couple days after posting. The conversion is extremely easy if you get the seats with the bases. I did it on a bj and it made a tremendous difference in all driving conditions. If you find a...

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Yes, great video. Thanks for that. Seeing that an FTE conversion was that easy gives me a lot more confidence about the 1HZ

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Thanks again. And I was just kidding about the poll. But you're right, the transmission situation should really just be a money thing. The throttle linkage picture you posted looks interesting. Mine has something very similar going on, it comes out of the firewall and loops all the way around...

    1HZ conversion for 3B BJ70

    Thanks for all the information, really helpful. I'll be taking many of your notes down into my planning. Regarding your conversion, were you putting an engine from a RHD into a LHD or vice versa? Mine is LHD and I haven't considered any issues that might exist if I use one from a RHD. I just...
