    Timing belt alignment....

    I checked my photos @ RightCamTiming.JPG by Pete Pressley and it looks like as long as the dots on the belt match the marks on the gears (All 3!) you are good. Mine is in a slightly different position than yours but I don't have a good shot of the crank gear.

    Towing an M3 with my LX470

    Make sure the trailer either has hydraulic brakes or you have a brake controller installed. Last time I used UHaul, they had hydraulic brakes on their trailers.

    Wanted 98-99 rear wiring harness for 100 series

    Yes, American Toyota said that this part was NLA. I did find that at least one of the connector housings is available: Toyota Part No.: 90980-11087 though So now I need to chase down all the housing numbers for part numbers and then to get part numbers for the pins. Time to find an online...

    Big idiot checking in - OME Springs / Torsion Reindex

    braking shouldn't be affected by raising the car slightly. Hmmm. Is the front end diving down too much? New springs and stock shocks? Are the stock shocks perhaps worn out? I use Bilstein HDs and they are firm and controlled compared to the stock shocks. But I'm still at stock ride height.

    Big idiot checking in - OME Springs / Torsion Reindex

    Alignment? Toe will likely change if you raise the front. That would lead to numb or unresponsive steering when going straight. Can you be more descriptive in your concerns about ride quality?

    FOB programming mode help?

    Yes, I tried their instructions first and then a few other plans that are slightly different. This one above is slightly different as well. I'll try this one and report back. Seems more like a land cruiser issue so far as I can't get into the remote programming mode on the car rather than...

    FOB programming mode help?

    Hi all, A family member lost a cruiser key so I bought a replacement on the web. The key cutting and chip work is all fine as the new key starts the car correctly. I can not for the life of me get the car to go into the FOB programming mode though to program the remote . Steps I am trying...

    Need Ideas: Failed French homologation due to braking distance

    +1 on making sure the tire pressures are in spec or a little low. If that doesn't do it, upgrade the tires to some good street tires.

    OEM wheel paint color

    I painted a set hyper silver set the Wurth wheel silver and then clear coated them. It was a pretty good match to the stock color. The Wurth silver paint is easy to find with a google search. Pete
