      Thanks fellas, I got a buddy in AZ that I *think* has one for me, but I’ll let y’all know! I’ve actually recently done the @Outsane ignition ring and have a seat angle replacement knob + vent bushings on order! It’s possibly a big ask but if...

      @Drift Monkey If Lee is willing to make new ones then just go that route. His products always turn out great.

      Having an ISO full of T, FTs and FTEs is nice, as long as you have the history of the engines. Not a ton of people are going to gamble on a $10k engine with no history, compression numbers or a running video.

      Also @slow95z and @arcteryx may have one.

      Canada has nothing to do with it. They come from Japan. But the port is local. I have an 80 and I'm not writing to checks to anyone. Around here a gasser 80 with the miles my diesel 80 had was similar in cost. But I get the simplicity of my...

      Well yeah, also a larger city with plenty of income not to mention I am sure they cross the border with Canada only having a 10 year rule. Here in the southeast they are pretty rare. I see them in Atlanta often enough but I see Lamborghinis more...

      Then you would be in the minority for sure. Only diesel one I have seen near me is an old bj40.
    • slow95z
      That is true too. Took 6 months to get this engine we are working on now back from the machine shop but that had more to do with parts being in backorder forever. I still say the diesel engine market is a niche inside a niche. 80s being the...

      i have a couple of those in the scrap pile ;)

      very small group of people that need a replacement. most of the time you can just rebuild an engine and have new vs buying a used one with no history. the parts to overhaul one can be found at a ton of vendors in stock here in the states. i know...

      for what the swap would cost you are money ahead in the states to sell your 80 and just get one imported. even the expensive one from the EU wiht LHD are a bargain compared to the cost/time of a swap. only reason anyone would do it is if they...

      You've already received one answer from one of the best parts sources, and lots of really good advice from some of the most knowledgeable people on this forum (which, IMHO, means anywhere), so why not take a minute and reread their comments? To...

      If you mess with the afm do not remove the screws. You will ruin it

      Uh, no. That writing on the cassette slot just means the stereo itself has an anti-theft system, namely a code that sometimes needs to be reset. Dude, you *really* should hook up with the local Land Cruiser club like jonheld suggested.

      Quite a few have asked on pricing. No lie, it's 5 hours of labor from start to finish, and 14 hours of time. I don't take shortcuts anymore. Restoring your wheels will set you back $275 a wheel. I don't think anyone has ever done it like this...

      Ok, way too far away for me to ship body parts.
    • slow95z
      So the engine is back in and bolted down. Over the next few days we will get all the little stuff hooked up but we have one tiny oring backordered. Should be in any day now but we won't be able to drive it without that sensor plugged up. Once...

      There is a pretty good dent on the drivers side of the hood. I’d say it’s been hit. May be not a crash but something smacked the hood.
