    Reconditioned 1hd-t hard to start

    He apparently sent it away. I'm trying to talk to the mechanic to get some details, he says he'll call me back tomorrow. But yeah, trust is very thin with those idiots.

    Reconditioned 1hd-t hard to start

    Yep, I'm in Wollongong. My mechanic was talking to Cooma Diesel who apparently know their s***. I might give Berrima Diesel a call tomorrow as well, see what they say. As far as I know it runs fine once started, just trouble getting going.

    Reconditioned 1hd-t hard to start

    Hi everyone, I just had my 1hd-t reconditioned and finally installed back in the car. But the mechanic's having trouble starting it. It starts ok if he is pumping the fuel primer as you crank it or it will start eventually if you just have the accelerator wide open (foot to the floor). Nothing...

    'Dusty' - HDJ 80 series

    I popped into the mechanics today to grab some stuff from the car. This is a shot of the empty engine bay, kind of sad but exciting too. Going to be great to drive it again after almost 5 months!! [

    'Dusty' - HDJ 80 series

    I found out that the 2" flexy kit is only on sale til today. Goes back up to $1900 tomorrow apparently. So I ordered it with the 45mm Tough Dog shocks. I'll get the mechanic to press the castor correction bushes in but will install the rest myself. The flexy coils are a lot longer than normal...

    The engine is sitting in pieces at the reconditioner's so no pics sorry. Definitely a snapped co rod though. Apparently the crankshaft looks ok but they're going to double check that in the new year. Got my fingers crossed to get it back by the end of January!

    This is a pic of the hole in the block from the snapped conrod It's about the size of my fist and there is another, smaller one on the other side.

    'Dusty' - HDJ 80 series

    Hi, I picked up my first Landcruiser a few months ago. Previously had a Hilux and a swb GQ Patrol. Had a shaky start with a snapped conrod 500km after I picked it up. This was particularly disappointing as the engine had just been rebuilt and done 350km when I bought it. So I'm currently...
