      rick_d replied to the thread 70 Series Parts Question....
      70 series owner since 2003 First and foremost, 'get the latest manufacture part that fits' versus trying to find the March 1988 BJ71 specific part. Remember also the 70 series chassis has run from 1984 production to today. A 1984 door will fit a...

      Jjust to be clear for all those considering the conversion of input shaft from coarse to fine is to put the 300mm turbo disk in w appropriate flywheel. Did my first hdt conversion in a 45 wagon chassis in 1999 BTW. Your project looks good.

      rick_d replied to the thread Paint Job Price.
      My recent experience. Kids car hit, took to local shop here in Tucson. Solid 6 weeks to fix and paint only rear bumper and truck lid. Structural work in trunk caused numerous delays. Friends Tacoma (2017) hit in front end. No mechanical damage...

      rick_d replied to the thread ARB + PTO - cut or run?.
      I am going against the grain- and I have had and used PTO winches. Electric all the way. A PTO you will never really use. Electric you can still use with engine waterlogged etc. Plus, the knob vibrates like hell unless you have the late model...

      rick_d replied to the thread 1 HD-FT Timing Belt Tensioner.
      Tensioner on bubble wrap is 1HDT (12 valve) and 1990-1998 1HZ style. You will need to exchange that for the pin style that came off your truck. Your photos need to be edited with correct descriptions. Took me a while to breakdown.

      Actually there are 8"/9.5" 3.73 gears made by Toyota. I also have 3.90 factory gears in my truck for optimal use with 1hdt system although they came in VDJ trucks and the rear 3.90 set is used in Sequoia's or some such.
