    Cheers Tap The price , for a South African , is a bit " Bend over" ish, but they were kind enough to provide dimentions. Watch this space. Strange how such a big vehicle (in 76 guise) does not have a lot of storage room. G

    Hell Tap, I missed this one, well done and many happy miles. The rear light issue here in South Africa?? Well firstly they had to put lights on the bumper to conform to local law, and most surrounding countries "borrow" the standards from us. So...

    Seen at a Joburg 4x4 center this weekend. I do not know a lot about FJ4?'s but it sure is neat and tidy. For the purists, then, the kid salesman told me that it was origional "Sir", but struggeled a bit with the ARB bumper, and was not realy sure...

    Just a quick spoiler on the gearboxes, Toyota did make the H150 with a 14 spline 32mm shaft and the 275 and 300 mm clutches are used on both gearboxes. I have such a 150 and the only way I know it's a 150 is that it takes 4,5 turns on the input...

    Contary to popular belief, a lot of FZ models came out with 275 clutches , they have a mixture of the H150 and H151 gearboxes, BUT both gearboxes had the same input shaft ( 14 spline/32 mm) again contrary to popular belief. As I mentioned to...

    Are these tools specific to the IP that they are used on?? I ask this because the lever pivot does not seem to be in the middle, which would amplify the movement (reading) on the guage side?? Or does it pivot in the middle. Sorry if this is a...

    Would this clutch be similar to a HZ76?? If so where the heck do you adjust it. Mine just has a positive pressure on the thrust bearing, therefor pressure plate, caused by a spring with in the slave cylinder. Took me a while to get used to...

    Are you testing your dome lights by holding the door open or using the on switch?? Sounds like a dumb question but the dash "door open" lamp draws quite a bit of current itself. Same goes for any of the dash lamps but they are usually off when...

    Bloody hell, the verticle welding is more "Text Book" than the horizontal welds which are really good as well. Loking forward to see all the mounts in. Thanks for indulging me on the suspention debate. I'm actualy fine as I am, and will only...

    Thanks a ton. With the leaf springs , it is assumed that the back axel flange angle remains almost the same during travel, so both falnges (Tx case and axle) should be almost parallel. It may even be the same with your 4 link ( maybe 5) 80 setup...

    2.5 degree incline towards the back??? Is this a standard toyota number for engines in the 76 series?? or perhaps a chevy specificatipon for this engine, or is it what you were happy with?? The reason I ask is because I put an H150 gearbox...

    The first pic really worries me Geoff, the valve has bashed the piston real good and you have to find out why. If you replaced the head, without finding the cause for this then you can poke the new head as well. Do they all look like this ...
