      duncanrm reacted to 1911's post in the thread High Altitude Compensator with Like Like.
      In gasoline 2F engines, the HAC advances the ignition timing an additional 6 degrees, and bleeds air into the primary low and high-speed circuits in the carb (to lean the mixture) when you get above 3,930' elevation. I have it on my truck; it...

      duncanrm reacted to John in Utah's post in the thread High Altitude Compensator with Like Like.
      The general idea is to limit the maximum fuel setting on the pump by replacing the fuel stop screw with a diaphragm that changes position based on ambient pressure. The pump on your 77 should look like the photo below. It’s basically a silver...

      duncanrm reacted to KlickitatPhil's post in the thread 2H with high oil pressure with Like Like.
      Installing the extended valve took me half an hour. A shortened 22mm wrench gets the cover screw off, and a rag stuffed up there and running the engine for a few seconds got the old valve out. About three tablespoons of oil also came out as well...

      duncanrm replied to the thread 2H glow and start issue.
      The starter relay is serviceable, open the case and give the contacts a light sanding to remove any carbon tracks or pitting. With regards to the glow system, try bypassing the factory glow controller with a jumper lead direct to the glow plug...

      I would suggest taking the body lift out. Will solve all sorts of issues.

      I was in dire straights... I was changing out the diaphragm in my 75 BJ40 this weekend and taking off the throttle linkage to get a little room. Snap! The brittle 47-year-old plastic ball joint end on piece of the linkage broke right into...

      duncanrm replied to the thread Banjo lines - replacing?.
      The banjos are generally good for life, but when disturbed new copper/aluminium crush washers should be used either side. Where are the actual leaks in the line?

      Any Denso fuel injection specialist should be able to manage it. I would be looking for a diesel injection shop, rather than a mechanic

      duncanrm reacted to OSS's post in the thread 2F Timing gear cover: Bolt sizes and order with Like Like.
      Here’s a diagram of the bolts and where they go on a 2F. The thin scribed number with decimal places I scrawled on the page next to my number is the length.

      duncanrm reacted to gimme a 60's post in the thread 2H vs. 3B engines with Like Like.
      I need/trying to put this topic to rest, it’s not going anywhere good. A while ago, I drove a naturally aspirated BJ 60 with 300,000KM. We started it up, I was SHOCKED about how much the damn thing rattled. The shifter shook, the dashboard...

      duncanrm reacted to gimme a 60's post in the thread 2H vs. 3B engines with Like Like.
      I could have bought a 2H a while ago, (I could technically still buy it now) but it’s from a 1988. For me, I thought having piston cooling jets and sleeved cylinders was the coolest thing in the world for a civilian vehicle. So I had to play the...

      They also deleted a superb centrifugal oil spinner/filter on later 2Hs as well.. the buggers. https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/land-cruiser-38286/hj47-56585/hj47lv-kc-936132/oil-filter-18022818

      duncanrm reacted to OPUS1's post in the thread 2H vs. 3B engines with Like Like.
      So if the early 2H's were sleeved then Toyota did cheap out on the later ones. Not saying it's wrong - just another corporate decision at the time to enhance profitability no doubt. But now we are looking back and have the luxury of deciding...

      duncanrm replied to the thread 2H vs. 3B engines.
      On the contrary, early 2Hs are in fact sleeved. https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dlya-avtomobilej/toyota/land-cruiser-38286/hj47-56585/hj47lv-kc-936132/cylinder-block-18022790

      What is the advantage of two sticks over leaving your front hubs unlocked and engaging 4L? Is this a vehicle with drive flanges rather than free wheeling hubs?

      Consider a device with a thermocouple that bolts under the thermostat housing.. I use an Engine Watchdog on my 2H. http://enginewatchdog.com/

      duncanrm reacted to 3_puppies's post in the thread Earth wire 2H with Like Like.
      are you talking about the eye terminal? is it a few inches from the battery end? I think it should go battery end, ring terminal to the inner fender and the other end to the engine block

      duncanrm reacted to ToyotaDyna's post in the thread BJ40 B Diesel water pump install with Like Like.
      Thanks for your input 👍 I'm currently removing the bung from the old pump to install on the new one. The screws on the plate are marked with a marker from the Factory so I'm going to assume that it has a good seal. If not I can always just...

      There's no good reason to remove the backing plate. Silicone is an option for the paper gasket, but I prefer Hylomar HYL200 for a gasket like this.

      duncanrm replied to the thread FJ-60 Vague steering..
      Check the steering box is still tightly bolted to the chassis rail.. this was the cause of my vague steering - all 4 bolts were loose (found after a full rebuild of both swivel hubs and replacement of all TREs).

      duncanrm replied to the thread 1KZ how much oil pressure ?.
      Factory spec.. from the 1KZ-TE FSM Pretty sure there's a typo in it though.. that 43psi should say 4.3psi.

      Stuck with the 25ft/lbs. on the return collar hold downs. got it all back together, and it is running beautifully with nary a drip anywhere. (Knock on wood) Thanks for the tips.

      if they do leak, loosen them up while its running, give the washer a spin and tighten it back.. I had a helluva time getting mine sealed at first on my 2.4
