    time to clean up the wires, wheres a good place to buy?

    It may not be a boat, but you'll find marine grade wiring easier to solder, has more strands, is more pliable than standard primary wire, plus it won't corrode when exposed to moisture, which can lead to a substantial voltage loss across a circuit. That voltage drop increases the load on the...

    time to clean up the wires, wheres a good place to buy?

    Selling my 1996 Land Cruiser Killer deal for only you guys to see

    Just out of curiosity, if you can't afford 13MPG, how can you afford a car payment? Regardless of what you buy, it will likely still take some amount of fuel to operate. I say sell the 80 and use the profits to buy something outright until you can save up for what you want. Making payments on...

    Side cover gasket replaced

    $350 would be a fair charge if it was done right. BTW, if you can't find MEK (DO NOT buy the substitute) 10 parts diesel and one part tranny fluid works great to degrease an engine. A pressure washer is your friend here too.

    Water pump stud sealant?

    Perma-Lok makes a great product called MM115. It is a sealer and mild thread locker. I've used it for many years - seals great and is always easy to remove.

    If you can't get it with FJ60Cam's method, you can remove the condenser bolts and center support out of the way enough to get access to the bolts.

    Stuck front caliper question

    I would try blowing the pistons out of the caliper with compressed air and checking for corrosion. Now is a good time to inspect and/or replace the seals anyways since you are doing a brake service. I assume you are resurfacing the rotors as well? Brake fluid absorbs moisture. So while the...
