      kidphc replied to the thread 100 series brakes.
      Truth in the first statement. Spoke to a Centric Sales Rep, they basically provide blanks for Brembo as well as several other manufacturers. Personally, sell 105 (pads) and 320 (GCX partial coated rotors) numbers to my customers. Most people...

      Eh, even on high traction surfaces, locking the differential is only a problem when turning. Then you can get drivetrain binding. Usually, noticeable by the extremely loud popping noises when the front or rear differentials thunking and sound...

      Looking at getting a Ultra gauge for my uzj100 to replace Torque, so I can get back to using it for APRSDROID mapping. Kinda of thought of this thread while looking at the gauge. Here is the link for the estimator of gauges for the HDJ100, you...

      I have joined the Facebook group a bit ago. Just not hugely active much less in groups that I usually join, little ones take up all the spare time. She looks pretty from afar, but eh get close and you can see the makeup caked on. I have soooooo...

      Finally, the flea bay luxury(lol) floor mats for 1st and 2nd rows came in. Took over a month, but pretty happy with the $80 purchase, shipping was another $30. The seller was responsive, and even offered to refund or reship when they were over...

      Could always find a way to adrunio or raspberry pi a tech stream, sounds like a complete pain in the tush. What values were you looking for?

      kidphc replied to the thread LC 2001 - ODB options?.
      I have been using Torque with my 2000 LC. There aren't many PID exposed/available so most generic readers will probably do what you want. I was hoping for a lot more information, but doesn't seems the electronics/ECU are up to snuff. My 02...

      Pretty much going to be doing the same size repair as the OP. I went at it with a pick and now there is huge hole there. So just need to get the steel and start working at it. Looks like is a fairly common problem.
    • kidphc
      Have a shop. Going to say this, we are throw away economy. It is often just cheaper to replace then repair. Crap, we have tools for rebuilding, just useless since we can't get the parts to rebuild a lot of stuff. For the CV, pads and rotors...

      kidphc replied to the thread 2nd battery tray compressor fab.
      Nice, now make a jig, manufacture them and sell them. I would like one, might as well just tell me how much you'd sell it for. Jesus is it hard to find a pre-fabbed one now a days. I could build one, but have less time them money.

      kidphc replied to the thread Steering wheel compatibility PSA.
      Gear selector looks about the same. Thought about ripping the grey one off of my 02 Camry (about to junk it), too bad lc interior is brown.

      Sadly, none of the usual suspects even have anything listed.

      kidphc replied to the thread Auxilary battery trays?.
      I have been on the hunt for the RHS battery tray. Since I don't have AHC I wanted the on the back side of the passenger side. Big gigantic space, so may have to fab one. None of the vendors seem to have anything for the tray. Actually would...

      Auxiliary battery trays anyone have suggestions. Ordering from Australia going break the bank. Kinda just want a drop in tray. Too bad Slee is out of stock and Cruiser parts which sells the Slee one says it could be up to a year before I see one...

      Your bank account, so you have a fond memory of it in the "before land cruiser times."
    • kidphc
      I don't know, I looked and looked. Since the diesel was never offered here (Maryland, U.S.) in the 100 I am limited to what I could find. Found one place that had a diagram of the vacuum system, but no description on the part. I am going to...
    • kidphc
      Agreed. Then you get aholes like me trying to keep the shop open. They love my mechanic, but I am the front man and manage the finances, so I will always look like a bad guy plus my attitude sucks lately. When I have to go to the dealer...

      Sorry this is the best photo of what the boost sensor should look like. Unfortunately, its on another forum. https://www.landcruiserclub.net/community/threads/map-sensor-turbo-pressure-sensor-pinout.152228/
    • kidphc
      The picture shown doesn't look like a pressure sensor of sorts. They usually are 2-4 wires. It is most definitely not a knock sensor, they are mounted low in the "V" of most engines to detect the "tells" of knock.
    • kidphc
      Most are going to be made from companies like McGuard, so chances of failure are still there. Had one fail on the side of 95 north in the pouring rain at 12:00 on a Saturday night. They will never stop a thief, they use the same tools we...

      Had several wheel locks break. Never again.

      Don't the stock amps have something to do with the way the radios power on these trucks?
    • kidphc
      Only really work on gasoline vehicles so take this with a grain of salt. Most cars use the Turbo pressure sensor, which is sometimes just a MAP (manifold absolute pressure ) sensor. To determine vacuum or positive pressures to adjust the fuel/...

      kidphc replied to the thread P0420.
      I consider the dealers specialist. All they work on are particular makes and models for the most part. So they are more likely tosee more issues with those models. As a general repair shop. I am working on a Honda one minute, changing the oil on...

      kidphc replied to the thread ‘98 LX 470 gas cap concern.
      Evap (evaporative emissions) system hadn't purged or vented yet. Pretty common on hot days as some of the fuel (liquid) evaporates into a gas and builds up pressure in your fuel tank. Leave a new style plastic gas can with the new Cali evap s***...
