    Part # request

    Hi all, My EPC is crashed, and a search revealed nothing: would anyone be kind enough to find me a part# for a master brake cylinder for my '90 LJ78? Just wondering if there's a cross-reference to a North American model. Many thanks. Robin

    LJ78 Hockey puck lift?

    Hey all, I remember from my youth reading in 4x4 mags about hockey-puck body lifts. Is this still done at all? I'm interesting in lifting my LJ78 by 1" or so when I move to larger tires, and the hockey-puck lift seems like a pretty cheap way to do so. Being a JDM, there are no domestically...

    Long Weekend Wheeling - Chewed Bridge Ranch

    Well, this is my first trip report, and it may be a little on the short side as I am at work. This was my first proper off-roading weekend, and it was a blast. It was also my first chance to wheel a cruiser and put my truck through its paces. Anyway, the home base for the weekend was the...

    LJ78 Question - autobox

    Hey all, just a quick question if you don't mind: I notice that my AT Pressure warning light does not come on at ignition, but the AT Temp warning light does. I'm wondering if the pressure warning light is burnt out. Has anyone else noticed this, or would anyone else be willing to check out...

    Lame JDM wiring

    The way my LJ78 is wired is really annoying, and I'm wondering if it's common to other JDMs or if mine was modded somewhere along the line. Anyway, it drives me crazy that I need to turn the key to "ON" in order to open/close the windows or sunroof. I'm learning to make sure that I've got all...

    Well, after almost 6 months of learning and wrenching, tonight I put the last few pieces on my truck and turned it over. To my surprise and delight, it started right up and settled into a happy little rattling idle. For those that don't know, I imported a 90 LJ78 last fall, complete with...

    Noob question - water pump install

    Hey all, this is a newbie question. Since I've always been an air-cooled VW guy, I know jack about water pumpers. Forum search didn't help. Anyway, I'm about to install my new Toyota Water pump into my 2L-TE, with a new paper gasket. Question: do I need to add some kind of gasket sealer to...

    Pulling the head ?

    Hey all, I'm all ready to pull the head on my 2L-TE. Everything's off, stretch bolts out, but the sucker won't budge. I've tried the screwdriver under the joint, cold chisel, thin scraper, tapping head with a dead blow hammer, levering, you name it. Can't get it to move. Does anyone have...

    ATF question - LJ78

    Hi all, I pulled the rad on my LJ78 this week, and lost some ATF in disconnecting the hoses, etc. Just wondering if I can use Dexron III to top up the tranny. The FSM says Dexron II, so there might be II and III mixed up in there once I top up. I can't seem to find Dexron II around these...

    Rear disc caliper question

    So I take the rear calipers off my LJ78 to install my new pads, only to discover that the piston is pretty much siezed in the caliper. I had to use a bench vise to push the piston back into the cylinder. I made a couple of calls to local brake shops, and was told "we usually just replace the...

    strange engine behaviour on 2L-TE

    Hey all, any ideas apprciated: Here's the lowdown: I picked up the LJ78 this morning in Calgary. Everything ran great: engine temp never left the lower part of the dial, EGTs never topped 850F. Ran a steady 100kph at about 2800 rpm for over 2 hours, no problems... ...until I hit...

    Getting parts

    Can anyone give me the skinny on ordering JDM parts through CDN Toy dealers? I haven't encountered this yet, since my truck is still on the boat, but when I finally do venture into their parts department, I fully expect them to say "Can't do it." What I really want to know is: Is it that...

    The Newest of the New

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, new to Land Cruisers, new to diesels, new to turbos, new to JDM trucks. But I'm keen to learn and contribute any way that I can. Anyway, I've got a 1990 LJ78 that's on its way over - should be in Vancouver end of this week. The truck's got about 69,000km on...
