    "Haru the HJ61" - Adventure and Build Thread

    How do the 33’s go compared to the 31’s? Any noticeable drop in power or braking? I am keen to do the same, but am concerned about changing how well it toes my boat...

    Preventing rust

    I used CRC Soft Seal to fill the inside of my gutters (from inside the car - under the roof sheeting) and think it would be perfect for the rest of the body / doors / chassis etc. It sprays on and dries to a hard waxy coating - you can build up coats to easily get it 5mm thick... doesn’t smell...

    Reversing camera

    Yeah - in a previous Landcruiser I had a stereo that was also a reversing camera, street navigator, DVD player, etc etc. For my last 2 x 60’s I decided that the stereo was going to just be the stereo! I like a ‘clean’ dash and windscreen so with this one tucked away I only notice it when it is...

    Kids Anti-Fight device

    So, we left home at 4:30pm after work, drove until 1:50am, slept until 7am, and arrived at our camp site at 2:45pm. And there were NO fights!! No space wars! Even with the esky out and the platform left in place, it is a handy drink holder and junk store... Enjoying 2 weeks of camping / fishing...

    Kids Anti-Fight device

    Actually they travel very well - but after 10 or 12 hours in the car everyone gets a bit ratty... It is worth it just for the drink holders!

    Kids Anti-Fight device

    @Silveredition I like the platform, cool idea. For my kids you would need a wall to the roof to stop them, they would be over that in a second, seat belts on or off. I was going to build a wall down the middle, but decided to risk it (and ran out of time).

    1988 HJ61 12ht Rebuild

    All of my info above was due to me freaking out thinking I had to do a rebuild immediately to prevent the top ring snapping and going through the engine before it went at 350000kms...(I was at about 500000 when I read about it...) Get it checked out, and rebuild if you want / if necessary -...

    1988 HJ61 12ht Rebuild

    I haven’t done any of it yet - but that is the plan... it will be intercooler before rebuild (unless something silly happens). It (1988 hj61 5 speed manual) has only done 586000kms, so will hopefully be a long way into the future....
