    Builds OL'BETSY ZX: Rust-o-mod (1991 HZJ77)

    It's nice to see all those different brands getting along so nicely on a backroad adventure! 😜 Sorry to hear about the bushing woes my friend, I also had a heck of a time getting the 19yr old bushings out of mine when I was installing the lift! Sheesh!!

    Ah, yes good point!! And in AK, you being parked in a garage, at least during the winter is definitely a nice to have. Winters are pretty mild in comparison here in the Okanagan of BC. Throughout most of the winter it is above freezing during the day at least. So my 10' carport for the...

    Wow, you took it up to 120/hr?? You are patient with your testing... hahaha! 🤪 Nice work, glad you got it resolved. I hate vibrations, rattles and squeaks!

    Builds AK HJ-75

    Wow, that's pretty awesome looking. Being you are from Alaska, I assume it is rated for HUGE snow loads! 😜 An "easy" fix if you want it a little higher to walk under would be to install a fresh lift and larger tires!! 😃 Looks great bud! 👍

    Headed out on the weekend to a cabin and on the first trip with the OEM alloys and the brand new toyo winter tires that came with the cruiser. I figured I would use them and save the expensive rubber. The OEM alloys are already showing signs of wear, so they are the perfect winter abuse...

    Yeah, that is a pretty sharp angle... any time you can make things as free flowing as possible for both intake/exhaust it is advisable. But yes, you need to work with the space you have, and you want to leave SOME clearance because of heat. This is a tough one. The existing port already is at...

    This site is showing 19 in stock: http://en.autospares.lv/search.html?article=2862168020&sort___search_results_by=final_price&smode=A Out of latvia, but it would not be the first time I have gotten parts from there. I had to get a part for my Jetta TDI out of there.

    Hey Phil, I found 19 in stock in Japan, but you end up paying an additional $50usd going through the smaller shops there. I suggest if you are not in a rush, place an order with partsouq even though they will cancel it because they are out of stock and that should wake somebody up to get some...

    Builds My LC79 build, HZJ79 body, 2uz/A343f UZJ79

    I see a major problem with this build... It is just so clean and beautiful, it will take serious willpower, casting all cares aside to take it out offroad and make it dirty. 😩😕 🤣

    ^^what he said... if you don't mind the color, stick with it. Put that money into some functional upgrades for the beast. Unless you have cheap access to bodywork/paint etc, save the money! 😃

    Builds 2002 HZJ76 Build

    Ok, so I had a chance to do some highway travel with the Cruiser after the new injectors and fuel tuning. I am getting 14L/100km with 35"x12.5" tires. This is through mountainous terrain, hills and lots of corners. Not too bad with those big boots. This machine came with brand new 31" snow...

    Good day to thee @snt2010! It took me a little while to reconnect the solenoids and get the routing correct before the glow light would stop coming on. I followed the following 2 diagrams, and with a little trial and error, managed to get the routing correct. I printed the diagrams to I could...

    "Death Wobble" HZJ78, modified

    You do not mention anything about tire size or width, etc... but I have found that the more oversize the tires, the more likely this is to occur. I would start with getting them balanced again. Ask them while they are balancing them if they notice any issues with out of round, rims possibly...

    Builds 1988 BJ74 “Number 1”

    That should work... awfully close to the "hot spot", but if you can get a longer one, and use a pipe bender to navigate away from the exhaust? 🤔 That should keep your rubber hose from melting... 👍

    What did you do on your 70 series today?

    Nice, congrats on the move!! Looks like the drive went well. And you shouldn't have to shovel any snow this winter! 👍

    Yep, my cruiser was much happier and no smoke once I advanced the fuel. Good job! :bounce: Ol' Bets is looking good on the camping setup, glad you are happy and enjoying how it is turning out. 😃

    Nice... it looks to boost as quickly as my setup. Is it a requirement where he is from to drive his landrover barefoot?? 😦🤔🤪

    Glad you have recovered from the vid! 👍 Just adding the turbo should not affect the oil pressure in any way, and I would NOT try to restrict the oil flow to the turbo... I would rather think that somehow teeing off the oil sensor output has changed the way your sensor is picking up the...
