    96’ 1hdft power problem

    The sediment is not good, and could be a good reason to look inside your fuel tank for rust, but that small amount of stuff is not affecting the flow of fuel with any significance. You could cut the filter open if you wanted to see how the actual filter media looks though. No, when the engine...

    Perhaps @Bardiya or @Japan4X4 can help?

    1HD-FT no volts

    Yeah, Diesels are great like that. I drove a VW diesel from South Carolina to Orlando with a non-functioning alternator, and it only took two batteries and a jump box. I bought a new battery before we left, and swapped it out ~7 hours into the journey at an Autozone. In a VW, the fuel gauge is...

    Part numbers - HDJ81 a/c system

    Thanks. Yeah, I know. I would be confident going that route if I knew that the system was empty, but since it is full and working fine, I prefer to go somewhere that can recover the freon.

    WDYD What Did You Do To Your Diesel Today (WDYDTYDT)

    Thanks for the photo! 100k KM's, I assume? I would definitely say mine looks newer. Yours looks 'slicker' or shinier, like the rubber has had more heat cycles.

    Part numbers - HDJ81 a/c system

    Thanks for the info. I'll keep searching, but I believe you're correct that the 10PA15C (at least) looks correct. Thanks!

    WDYD What Did You Do To Your Diesel Today (WDYDTYDT)

    Inspected my timing belt and installed / wired up some aux lights. 1) Timing belt sticker said 87,xxx KM's. Truck is now at 219k KM's. I popped the cover, and I'm fairly certain the T-Belt was done before the truck left Japan, in Nov. 2019. There's no way this T-Belt is at 110k KM's. It still...

    On road-trip having electrical issues HDJ81

    Put a proper multimeter on the battery. If you're charging any more than ~14 - 14.5V, then you could damage sensitive components. Personally, I am partial to having alternators and starters rebuilt instead of replacing. In my town, there are a few "old school" rebuild shops that actually take...

    Part numbers - HDJ81 a/c system

    @HillCountryTX - Thanks. I had it in my head that the expansion valve and drier were the parts to replace every time you open the system. I'll leave the expansion valve and do a dryer. if I replace the compressor. @jellis - It was originally an R12 car, but was converted to R134 in Japan. When...

    HZJ80 Exhaust Flex Joint Replacement

    If you can Mig weld yourself, measure the circumference and length of the pipe and buy a generic flex joint. If you can't, bring it to a muffler shop that should be able to do it for pretty short money - $100? There is not a better way than measuring it yourself to find a replacement. Toyota...

    Part numbers - HDJ81 a/c system

    Bumping an old thread for some assistance. My AC compressor is definitely going out, the bearings are going bad. I can hear it when it cycles on that it's not long for this world, and I'd like to proactively replace it before it pukes crap into the system. It's a 1992 HDJ81, so can folks...

    Y'know, I almost asked. She's got a little more hair than a Sphynx, but sometimes they are interbred and hard to distinguish. Cutie pie!

    The Rocker Rust Removal Begins Post

    It's a great way to learn! I bought a rusty 1974 VW Thing, and figured out how to weld by removing rotten metal one piece at a time! After all, it's not rocket surgery!

    The Rocker Rust Removal Begins Post

    Thanks for the detailed write up! I'll be following closely, as my rear left rocker is in a pretty bad state as well. Thanks for the photos, so I can see what I'll find once I peek behind the curtain. Nice job on the filler panels too! For a first timer, you're doing great. I have done a fair...
