      roscoFJ73 reacted to crave reFleXion's post in the thread 3B or 3BII with Like Like.
      3BII - precursor to the 14B. Bloody good little engine and they even have a sump without wings, which can be a pain when installing a 14B.

      Pretty much untrue. Only the 1HD T suffered bearing problems. Many of the engines are capable of well over 500000klm on the same internal components. A lot of Toyota diesels are shared by their truck and bus range. The 1HZ often reaches a million...

      An Australian company buys in blank heads from China, checks them and then finishes them off. I forget their name.

      Hello, The rear side vent grilles are missing. This detail gives it away as a factory soft top. They did a good job with that FRP top. Juan

      I bet you the VIN for that thing won't show FRP top. Probably started life as a FST and modified afterwards. There are a few South American SWB examples I have seen with FRP top as well. Google translate seems to suggest that example in the...

      I agree with the above that you should be able to work on these and source parts yourself. It's true that the KZJ78 was made for just a few years. That said, the 1KZTE and A343F were produced in a ton of models and parts are available and...

      I'd throw this out as a warning against all JDM cars: They are a terrible choice for anyone unwilling or unable to get deeply involved in maintenance and diagnoses themselves. Toyota dealers and many mechanics won't touch them. When you do find a...

      The KZJ78 is an antique as well. Don't fool yourself. 100 series all the way.

      Sorry to hear of your horrible accident in the 80. Glad you guys survived though. If you want a comfortable, safe and capable landcruiser suitable for highway cruising, maybe look at the 100 series. If you want a cruiser with a solid front...

      Hi What's the plan? Fab those yourself? The dimensions of the cables are probably your least problem, but the whole assembly, in particular the equilizer and connectors at the ends may be. Here is the parts diagram of my 1985 BJ73...

      US Toyota or Head Office in Japan? You should be able to get parts from Partsouq etc.

      This engine is fitted to 4wd versions of the Dutro, but the rear drive shaft exits from the centre of the t/case. So you could probably use the t/case but you would have to use a centred diff with it.

      Australian owners were still having problems with the 1hd ft and fte versions. Not in big numbers but still happening. Some owners had to sign confidentiality agreements with Toyota Australia to get their FTE fixed. One owner reported that their...

      I dont believe this is really possible. The engines that are left in a state of lower output with normal maintenance last longest.

      roscoFJ73 replied to the thread TF035 Turbo on a 5L-E.
      Ive always thought the L engines in general were given a bad rap on this forum. They work fine in countries where they have the experience and parts to maintain them

      You might find a bit of info on Australian FB pages. This engine is popular and common here.

      the 2l is treating me well super simple and easy to maintain, its not rocketship but it can move out of its own path and gets reasonable mileage. I'm not intercooled yet, still debating on how ill tackle that.. If I was doing more 70+ MPH highway...

      Talk about govt over reach. I can understand why they dont want cars that dont conform to US standards, but a gear box!!

      roscoFJ73 replied to the thread 1KZTE On-Going Issue!!.
      Im not sure. Does it go to the tank? Clear hose is not usually used as a fuel line
    • roscoFJ73
      That link says it fits all toyota t/cases, but I would presume an American dealer is thinking local I would check that it will fit your HJ75 t/case because they are not sold in the US.

      roscoFJ73 replied to the thread 1KZ how much oil pressure ?.
      My 1HZ did that after a rebuild. I forget the idle reading , but the 2500rpm psi was smack on 80psi. Toyota Australia recommend 15-40 oil for the 1KZ.. I would have gone for a thinner oil for break in.

      They are called detent springs. I suspect they are the same in other Toyota transmissions Says it fits all https://www.yotamasters.com/shop/other-stuff/trail-gear-products/heavy-duty-shift-detent-spring-bolt/

      Hello, A good Land Cruiser owner/mechanic resists torture. Bruises are irrelevant if you get the job done. Just saying.... Juan

      Get your old injection pump bench tested. Set up an inline hose like this to see if you have air in your lines. Check the fuel pick up in the fuel tank for obstructions

      roscoFJ73 replied to the thread Engine oil for 2LT diesel.
      Like how does it affect things? Ive tried lots of oils in lots of engines, and providing you use the correct grade and type there are no issues.
