Just did an engine overhaul, replaced glow plugs, replaced the nozzles on the injectors and sent them all to be calibrated. We turn it on and there's so much white smoke we had to put a towel...

    No Manual Locking Hubs?

    Just picked up an 82' FJ60 in Central America and realized it doesn't have front locking hubs or disc brakes. Previous owner said he bought it like that from factory. Front hubs seem to be locked at all times as well. Anyone know if this was one of the options for some of these older models? I...

    Suspension Lift Kits - 2020

    I've been searching a lot in the forums and can't really make a decision on a lift kit. I hear a lot of good things about OME, Skyjacker, JT Outfitters, and Hell Creek. Has anyone tried the Dobinsons suspension? I had them on my 80 and really enjoyed the ride. I'm looking to fit 35s on my...

    H42 Engine Swap Options

    Hey all, I'm looking at swapping my B engine to something newer/more readily available parts. Aside from the 2B/3B engines, which others would be a direct fit to the H42 transmission? I'm also considering a 1KZ-TE and a 1HZ as swap options. Would these require a transmission and transferase...

    How many KM?

    I just purchased this nice 1981 BJ40 in Central America with a Diesel engine. Previous owner wasn't sure how many km the car had. He only put about 1k in the last 2 years and he bought it off an elder lady who he thinks was the original owner. Dash says 27k kilometers, but we're not sure if...

    Bad Alternator: OEM vs Autozone/O'Reilly's?

    Just picked up this 95 Right-Hand Drive VX Limited Cruiser in Washington after arriving from Japan a few weeks ago. Currently on a trailer headed to Chicago. Car wasn't starting so we replaced the battery, worked great for a bit and then wouldn't start 10 minutes after turning the car off. Few...

    Too much rust?

    How bad is the rust on this thing? The front is actually in pretty good shape so I didn't post a picture. Going to tackle sanding off as much as I can and putting some POR15. Also, does the rear swaybar look a bit funky?

    So how do you delete the EGR?

    Reading all these threads. Seems like a good solution to get rid of CEL codes. How is it done? What parts should I buy? (Block Off Plates, etc.) What about the VSV and all the other hoses under the intake? I still have 1 last emissions test in Illinois, should I wait till after? Currently...

    2 months after installing the Dobinsons leveling suspension kit, my front passenger side (U.S.A. right) started sqeaking a bit every time I hit a bump. I took pictures comparing both sides and the top of the right side doesn't look to be centered properly. I already made sure both sides were...

    Rattling Sound when Accelerating

    It's been bugging me for quiet some time now. But today I just couldn't take it. Could it be the exhaust manifold heat shields? They are fairly cracked and rusted. What else should I look at?

    Clunk noise when changing between D and R

    Not sure if this is a concern. I’ve had this clunk noise for quite some time now. Happens even when I come to a complete stop, wait 2-3 seconds, and then change gear. T Case? I’m sitting at 180k miles. Don’t think t case or transmission has had an oil flush.

    Temperature gauge all over the place!

    Video: IMG_2432.mov Help me diagnose this issue. Has the temp sensor gone bad? PHH? The shakiness is just rough roads of Chicago. I've got a P0401 code too so not sure if the EGR has something to do with it?
