    Rocky 1994 FJ80 Project Car

    So all in all, rocky was great after the diff rebuild. I felt the car is underpowered a bit and fuel consumption was a LOT. 1 litre did around 4.2 KM (trip was 300 km used around 75% of the tank. The radiator was boiling when i arrived, heat gun check and temp guage where good seems i have a bad...

    2nd destination was a fossil museum, strangly enough that area was a rain forest long time ago. You could actually see water levels on small hills from erroision made by water. Even had whale bonest meaning before even the rain forest the sea had actually reached all the way out there.

    Took the car offroading with 2 Fortuners, we went off road quite a bit. The first destination was a pharos market place long ago a bazaar for gold exhange. Apparently this was a huge lake area and boats where used to reach this very thriving area.

    According to specs, i need a NLGI-2 Lithium grease for the bearings (The one I got is LGMT 3/1 which is NLGI-2 Lithium based) I checked some videos as well and its the same. Its operating temperature is up to 120 Degrees, the color is the only part that seems off but as far as i can tell...

    This seems to be a common practise with mechanics and Landcruiser owners. Talked to 3 so far all confirmed thats what they did 3 to 4 years ago with no issues. This is the grease used, i am more inclined to your logic though.

    So took the car for inspection and well glad I did. So oil seal is gone, discs, bearings, caliper etc. (i think it has 300k KM on it or so). I decided to rebuild the front diff and also change the diff hub the gears are worn and there is far too much play.

    So I had smoke coming out of the left front tire, I took off the wheel and there was grease every where. The wheel sounded a bit rough so I am guessing the bearings heated up and caused the grease to escape. (its not oil for sure maybe oil and grease together?) In all cases bearings are well...

    Rocky 1994 FJ80 Project Car

    I'm going to repair a broken bold in the left wheel, I will take apart the front diff's and check everything there before re-sealing it (swapping anything that is not looking good) I think it will be a good opportunity to do chair at the same time.
