    2.8L TGV turbo diesel

    Interesting finding a local cruiserhead found on eBay: 2.8L intercooled turbo diesel that fits a standard Chevy small block bellhousing pattern. Seems that these engines are brand new and built to order. 135 hp but can be cranked up to 170 hp. Note the pics are not of the engines. Dave

    kiwimidi: hybrid turbo?

    Kiwimidi, in your post to Readers Rides, you said you have a CT26 hybrid turbo in your BJ74. Care to tell us about it? Do you get a higher output, better spool up, etc.? The spring over conversion looks good, BTW. Dave

    Blanked out windows on Fred75's troopy

    Hi Fred, Welcome to the board! I notice the 73 and 75 series landcruisers that were sold in Belgium and the Netherlands have blanked out rear side windows. Is this so that they could be classified as a van instead of a passenger vehicle or a bus? Dave

    Widening a 70 rear axle or narrowing an 80 rear axle

    Most of us are familiar with the IFS Hilux front hub conversion to gain an extra 3" of axle width on our cruiser front axle. Aseif007 and I have been discussing how to narrow a late/US model 80 series rear axle to get it to match his front 60 series axle width. So I am posting this to share...

    New J70 dash

    Have a look at the dashboard on this 1993 KZJ70: It looks as if the instrument cluster, steering wheel column and the metal part underneath is not changed from the model that debuted in 1985, but the top upholstered part sure looks nice IMO. This is what the vehicle looks like: so...

    Gearless ratchet wrenches

    Has anyone here used gearless ratchets, such as the one made by Mac Tools? What attracted me to it is the ability to ratchet in less than 5 degrees. What's your impression? Would you buy it again? Would you recommend it? Dave

    locker cable routing

    Fitting cable lockers to my cruiser. Question for those who have a long wheel base cruiser with factory cable lockers (such as the HJ60 or HJ61): Does the rear cable go next to the fuel tank or does it run along the frame rail? Thanks, Dave

    Pitted t-case gears = whine?

    I bought this transfer case from another guy in this forum. I'm in the process of rebuilding it and I noticed the high range idler gear is pitted like this: About 2/3rd of the teeth on the gear are pitted. The input and output gears and the low range idler gear are in good shape...

    vehicle dollies

    Been thinking of a set of vehicle dollies, those metal plates with casters, to move my other cruiser around in storage. Any recommendations? I need to move it around mostly side to side, to get to parts on the other side, etc. The cruiser in storage has no driveshaft so it is not moving under...

    Longfield spline engagement

    I'm trying to install the inner axles into my new 30 spline Longfields. In the first one on the left, there was a click when I pushed the axle shaft in and I was able to stop there. In the second one, I pushed hard as I had a much harder time getting it in and the axle went in all the way...
