    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Hard Top Lift

    I did the same thing with the racor except i ditched the cable for thin spectra cord (>1000kg strength) as it was easier to center and tie on the hooks. On/off is 1 one person job.

    How to get the pins out of the shackles?

    Clutch not holding

    Glad you are back in business. Not to sidetrack original post but, I have been plagued with squishy clutch since replacing both master and slave together. No leaks. Do you have to bleed master separate , or can it be done hooked up and the entire line bled through the bleeder valve on the slave

    Homemade Hardtop Hoist

    Racor PHL-1R Pro HeavyLift 4-by-4-Foot Cable-Lifted Storage Rack Ditch the cables as it is hard to keep it tight on the rotating spindle. Changed to high strength 3/8 rope like spectra or dyneem and tie on utilty hooks from home depot/lowes. Works well, one man job on and off.
