    craigslist My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    It's better, but IDK how much. PO says 18-20. I had three different clerks fill the tank less than full. Then when I started telling them to top it off (here in OR we aren't allowed to pump our own gas :rolleyes:) my G-D odometer broke. I just fixed it and am filling up today, so next fill...

    craigslist My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    I don't wheel a lot so decent clearance and good traction is what I really want, and the syncro (with locking center and rear diffs and a decent lift) has that. It's also exceedingly easy to live out of in a wide variety of situations. Thanks to all on the site, what a fantastic community y'all...

    craigslist My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    Fun story about this van: I originally bought that exact camper--I mean that one, same vehicle, not same model--in 1998 in Florida. My wife and I drove it around the country for a few months, exploring and also deciding where to move to. We ended up in Oregon where it took me on trips for the...

    BTW this is the vehicle I replaced with, I have sadly left the cruiser community. It's a '91 syncro with a 2.5L Subaru conversion.

    craigslist My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    At the end of the day, it's your own self you gotta live with, and I like to feel like I try to do the right thing. I appreciate the attaboy though. It might be a flip. It was hard for me to price the vehicle, I could maybe have gotten more than my asking price for it. The first impression on...

    craigslist My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    I asked him, and he said it was too slow when driving uphill. He showed me a pic of a tan FJ60 he said he'd bought instead. Neither he nor his dad seemed to recognize how far the rust had progressed... I DID say it was for a trail rig, donor, or parts truck though...:rolleyes:

    craigslist  My 1985 BJ60 is for sale in LA, now

    So it turns out that the buyer of my stealth-rustbucket BJ60 has listed it in LA, now. And I think they want $11k for it? It's a little hard to tell, what with all the "sub compact" and "like new" razzle dazzle. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/d/los-angeles-landcruiser/7154783277.html...

    SOLD 1985 BJ60, 5 speed, factory A/C, rusty

    The sale has been postponed until Tuesday, but given that the buyer is flying one-way from southern CA, I think it's probably leaving my hands then. Either way I will update this ad tomorrow afternoon, say by 3 pm PST, after meeting with that person. Thanks all for the interest.

    SOLD 1985 BJ60, 5 speed, factory A/C, rusty

    Well, I thought about parting it out, but don't have the time and interest. It would generate more than $5k though, I imagine; if the frame and body were straight it'd be a real keeper. Like, the dashboard doesn't even have any cracks! Sale pending on Monday for a customer who provided a cash...

    Added more rust pics to the imgur album. As stated, IMO this is a good trail rig, donor, or parts truck.

    Replaced cracked air intake hose on my BJ60

    As long as the hose is 3" diameter on one end and 2.25" on the other, and about 10" long (equals about 7.8 cm/5.6 cm diameters and 25 cm length) and also rubber so it flexes, it will probably work. (I rounded up the inches-to-metric conversion a little on the big end because 3" was a very tight...

    Hard to start 3B: no smoke, starter OK, battery OK, glow OK

    New plugs solved the problem, fires right up first go. The OEM plug part number for my 10/85 12V 3B with superglow is 19850-68051. Thanks all for the advice, and happy trails.

    Replaced cracked air intake hose on my BJ60

    I had a major crack in the hose between the air cleaner and the intake on the engine. The part is discontinued and the only quote I found for one of the very few remaining was $370. I didn't want to use coiled HVAC type hose because of concerns about heat, durability, and getting a good seal on...

    need advice about intke hose

    Could be, I haven't been on here much over the past year. But unless they are the 3B variant they will not fit my engine and air cleaner. Thanks for posting up.

    need advice about intke hose

    Still hoping for a line on the right material to use for this application. I'm about a half-banana mechanic at best, which is why I am turning to the experts. Thanks for looking.
