    Builds Back in a 40! - AussieHJCruza's HJ47 Build - now back to a frame-off

    Step 3: If you own a set of the right pliers to open up the folds around the edge of the door, use them. If you don't, like me, this is what I did to separate it. Using a flat bar (I used a chisel) and a good pair of nips, start at one end and pry the fold up. Use the chisel to protect the edge...

    Builds Back in a 40! - AussieHJCruza's HJ47 Build - now back to a frame-off

    So the covid stuff has stopped us meeting up for ages now, as i can't leave the state and come back without quarantining for 14 days. So decided to make a start on the drivers door today. It needs a fair amount of attention. Will be taken probably pretty slowly. Starting with this: Looking at...

    Australian 70 Series owners...

    Yes. 1985 and newer rigs all have a VIN (vehicle identification number). 40 series are the last that don't have VIN numbers, they have chassis numbers.

    HPD 1HZ Turbo Kit .....

    Don't budget out with a 1hz in the intercooler department. PDI makes the most complete kit and it works very well.

    75 to later 75 or 79 series axle swap

    Hey, My old 95 hzj75 had disc brakes on the rear end. Imho, the best bet would be to get a 75 rear end that has the disc brakes. You also may need a disc brake hand brake cable to suit. You can also just order all new disc brake components and do it that way but it's probably the most expensive...

    🐒 The miraculous adventures and thoughts of a monkey 🐒

    Need advice!

    The 1hz is terribly overrated imho. Turbo the 97, flog the 1hz. That's what I'd do, coming from a Aussie diesel head.

    1HDT Clutch Vs Power

    The Terrain Tamer fortified will hold up, and would be my second choice. However, most now use the NPC for good reason. I have one in my 1hd-fte 79. Awesome pedal feel and rated to 1300nm. If it were me, NPC all the way, especially those in the states where the exchange rate helps out big time.

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Nah 🤣 thats just cos it's rare. The FTE is a better engine than the FT. Few people realise it but there are actually some differences in the long block between the 2. Toyota "updates". FTE needs the computer as well so can be more of a pain to swap. Way easier to tune tho.
