Upon inspection of my fuse panel I noticed there is no 7.5A fuse for "glow". In fact there are no contacts in the fuse panel where the supposed fuse is supposed to go.
The glow relay actuated when the ignition is 'on'. It looks like I'm getting 5V to the relay switch when I checked with a...
I got the cylinder 3 misfire code on my 80 (1fz). It definitely felt like it was running on 5 cylinders. Very lumpy idle but the tachometer was steady at 650. I pulled the #3 plug and verified I was getting spark. Fuel shot out of the cylinder onto the valve cover.
I probably jumped the...
I'm going to swap out my LCAs, axles, front bearings, hubs, KDSS links/bushings, and front diff mounts. I have a couple of specific questions and looking for any other offered advice.
Do I have to open both KDSS circuits if I'm only working on the front?
Since I'm removing the entire LCA, am I...
I'm getting ready to "refresh" my front end with some new parts. I'm one of those people that does the "while you're in there" stuff if I'm fixing something in the same general location. I've been trying to root cause my vibration issue from what was likely damage caused during a couple of...
I'm experiencing some serious vibrations, to the point where it is physically uncomfortable to drive. To make this more difficult several factors were changed before the vibrations started to happen. I hoping to get some help to find the root cause of this problem. The vibrations are...
I'm going to install some SPC UCAs in the near future. Should I open up the KDSS valves to do this? I read a thread that talked about upward pressure after releasing the ball joint. Will opening the valves avoid this potential safety issue? Also, I didn't see any detailed write up on this...
I haven't been satisfied with the tracking/alignment on my 200. As I looked through the PO records I noticed that the dealer indicated they couldn't complete the alignment after a new steering rack was installed due to metal fatigue on one of the adjusters. Upon closer investigation I can now...
Most recently I picked up a clean 2008 Land Cruiser from the PNW. I originally intended on picking up a low mileage 200, but ended up with one that has 228,000 miles on it! It's a one owner well taken care of vehicle. 100% dealer serviced and it came with a lot of extra goodies:
ARB front and...
At 228,000 I'm replacing my radiator, water pump, thermostat, serp belt tensioner, fan pulley bracket, fan clutch, idler bearing, valve cover/plug gaskets, and whole bunch of hoses.
While I'm waiting for a copy of the FSM, I could really use the torque specs for:
Fan belt bracket
Long time member here. I've had a 40, 80, and 100. The 40 and 100 are gone, leaving me with just my 80 and soon to be new-to-me 200. It's shipping to me this week from out west so it's rust free! The PO had it dealer serviced since owning it from day one, so it received regular fluid swaps...

I'm looking at keeping my triple locked 80 and selling my 100. It's been my daily for the last 8 years and I'm looking to replace it with a Tundra to pull my 80 and Supra around :-).
It's mechanically been pampered by me and has a lot of nice upgrades. I'm the second owner and it's been a...
Need some help here. A couple of months ago I developed a strange rattling/whirling sound coming from what I thought was the engine bay. I pulled the serpentine belt off and checked all of the pulleys. The idler pulley seemed loose and made a very slight noise when I spun it. Everything...
