    Hey 97 land cruiser owner...I need a quick favor...

    Would someone with a 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser mind taking a picture of the emissions info label - located on the underside of your hood, upper left corner - and posting it here? I'd like to compare the official numbers for the 97 LC vs. my 97 LX 450. Thanks in advance! :cheers:

    1997 LX 450 Aftermarket Catalytic Converter CARB Woes...

    I'm not sure if I'm the only one or not, but let me share with everyone what I'm dealing with now... In late November 2009, I had an aftermarket catalytic converter installed on my 1997 LX 450. The shop I went to didn't have anything for the 1997 model, but they did have one which was approved...

    Gas String Trimmer...Stihl KM 90 or KM 110?

    I had been considering picking up an Echo string trimmer to replace the POS WeedEater that did it's job reasonably well for 5 or 6 years before dying a solid death. But reliable sources have been directing me toward the Stihl. The price is just a bit higher than I planned to spend, but it's...

    Rest Safe Delaware! You're being protected from suit-wearing-knife-wielding scouts...

    :hhmm: I suppose the fact that he sometimes wears a suit to school could be part of his master-plan to attract his unsuspecting potential victims? :rolleyes: But what really sucks is that this is going on his "permanent record."

    Wanted  Y-Pipe

    Okay...who's got a Y-Pipe for me? It needs to be from a 95-97 FZJ80. The Y-pipe is the section of the exhaust that runs from the manifold to the cats. It's a bolt-on/off piece. If you still have the bolts...those would be nice to have as well... The earlier years (93 & 94) won't work due...

    Colliers Encyclopedia, circa 1972: what should I do with it?

    Who buys sets of encyclopedias anymore? My dad did back in 1972 and I was happy as hell back then to have a set at home when I was growing up. I did many a school assignment with those volumes at my side. I still have that set that I grew up with...for some reason, I continued to haul around...

    Coworker's Short Sale "Scam"

    I have a coworker who's currently living in a so-so neighborhood -- he and his wife bought their house about 2 or 3 years ago, at the height of the real estate market -- they bought what they could afford. The house is nice. It's big enough, but not huge. The yard is okay, but not great...

    So... I have some work to do in Hartford, CT in a couple weeks and was considering flying into Logan (Boston) and making the (according to google maps) 2 hourish drive to Hartford, rather than fly directly to Hartford.
