      Thanks for the info and reference! Their extreme battery cable looks awesome, good to know that's out there! You will be glad you upgraded when you see how small the stock cable is compared to that 2AWG, it's pretty amazing I never had any...

      I did this exact upgrade and didn't swap to a larger wire. I drained the batteries many times and never had problems for years, but this winter after sitting for a long time I did have a weird electrical smell after driving which I suspect was...

      Isn't there already an oil-to-water cooler on the LH side of the engine? According to ToolsRUs, run 20-50 in the summer. I just added it and I'm definitely burning WAY less oil.

      @-Spike- do you have your airline setup on solenoids with an in-cab switches to actuate for airing up/down? I didn't know you could safely drive with the Stauns on, that would help a ton for sure! :bang: I'll have to give them another try...

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt fuel solenoid.
      Be careful with clear tubing, it's not rated for fuel use so don't use it long-term. It was installed on mine when I bought my truck, then a year later I came out to my idling truck in a parking lot with fuel spewing EVERYWHERE because it had...

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt fuel solenoid.
      Solenoids are tricky, just like all electro-mechanical devices. They will click but not properly actuate, or not far enough. I pulled my PPS valve on my steering box and it was clicking but not properly actuating, luckily I had a spare one to...

      jellis replied to the thread Rapid Precision Valve.
      What do you mean "the Apexes are infinitely adjustable on the fly"? In that you manually deflate to your desired pressure with no pre-set lower limit? That's a downside IMO, these would be epic if you could set a lower limit and walk around the...

      jellis replied to the thread Rapid Precision Valve.
      Looking into these more, they are a replacement valve stem. They really do seem to match valve stem removal speed, they would be PERFECT if you could set a lower limit somehow! I super want these now!

      Not that I'm aware of. If all fuses (under dash and hood) check out OK along with the FL then you need to start cracking open connectors and checking wiring segments for continuity and voltage to see where the fault is.

      jellis replied to the thread Rapid Precision Valve.
      How do these compare with pulling the valve stems? I got a set of Staun's and they take FOREVER with 37s, so bad I don't ever use them and pull the valve stems. There are risks to this, namely loosing valve stems during deflation especially...

      jellis replied to the thread Is my radiator about to explode?.
      Yeah but she didn't have a screaming toddler as an excuse--and, you know, it was a FREAKING JET!!!! I appreciate the advice on here about how to clean the engine compartment. After having an oil dipstick that blew gallons a few times due to a...

      I assume your key was on when turning over and it still didn't start? You fully bypassed the converter timer and relay by using Squash's trick so that's NOT the problem. Your lack of basic power to the dash is a huge problem. Your fuel cut...

      Wow, that's pretty amazing it works down that low. My apprehension about switching to 12V start has been that I routinely see -15C/5F in winter at home, but also go to Wyoming where my wife's family lives and there -35C/-30F is the kind of...

      Super rad!!!! Thanks so much for the video!!! I assume if the key was on it would have fired up. Impressive that this worked even during the Canadian winter!!!! A lockout switch would be an appropriate safety element, or just leave the fuse...

      I'm interested to see how this goes. I have replaced both my shafts with DC Tom Woods. I have a recurring problem in the rear where my TC output shaft/bearing keeps becoming loose and I have no idea why, this obviously leads to vibrations (mine...

      jellis replied to the thread Inner axle seal?.
      That is an INSANE amount of fluid to leak out while in a store. Something must be pressurized?!? Or is the seal even in there at all? A normal leak just gives you BIRF soup. I haven't had luck with Toyota OEM seals on my Nitro birfs...

      This is pretty weird. I have walked thru the FSM analysis of the Voltage Converter Relay and been very frustrated by weird results with low/dead batteries--seems weird, but it's true. The odds of frying the relay by having the ground come off...

      Are the outputs tights on your TC?

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt fuel solenoid.
      How does that work? Can you post a pic or something? A video of starting with that mod? I'd love to see it!

      jellis replied to the thread 1hdt fuel solenoid.
      Disconnect all terminals from both batteries, let them sit for 6+ hours, check their voltages. Ideally they'd be identical. This seems unlikely to be a culprit but electrical issues are a bizarro nightmare and this is awfully cheap and easy to...

      Hit up @Bardiya, he's always posting in the Diesel classifieds section, he can get after-market mirrors painted to match in UAE. I just haven't pulled the trigger yet on mine.

      I was pretty sure I plumbed it according to factory routing. Regardless, if it's wrong it's much easier to run it backwards (A2A then W2A) than worry about it getting too cold in winter/blocking off A2A in winter--or even more absurd, doing it...

      jellis replied to the thread New Guy - Importing '93 1HD-T.
      This came up in another thread, but something that is super important for these rigs if you're in the mountains at all: You need to install an air-to-air tranny cooler in the HDJs--stock on FZJ, but not HDJ for some super weird reason. This is...
    • J
      Well you ABSOLUTELY need to install an air-to-air cooler in the HDJs! This is such a cheap, easy, and important addition it should be on the top of the list for these rigs. I have mine in-line with my radiator (air-to-air first to reduce temps...

      I'd recommend constant tension hose clamps if you're that worried about the hose holding up.
