If you wanna go a step above the fj80 and fzj80 move up to the LX-450..way more power, killer gas mileage, lighter, there’s no head gasket, and it’s Toyota’s flagship princess …it makes one feel empowered and smarter to have the best of the lineups..😉
aaaaand it’s blown at 238k miles
I’m glad this is over, every trip I went on i was wondering if this would be the time..lol..but mine went slow with some gurgling in coolant reservoir and rough start ups..
my head gasket went out, just had my head done at machine shop...$1500...valve grind, guides, seals , decked, cleaned ect ect...runs so smooth/quite now with power back, no jumpy idle.. I didnt realize how bad it was...
2500rpm is high at 75mph which results in bad mileage and irritating on long trips
My 97’ f350 with 7.3 psd has 3:55 gears ..and When I’m at 70 I’m 1800rpm ish which is nice in mileage and engine noise..lol
On my 96' LX-450 head gasket finally giving up at 238k, got the sweet smell at tail pipe and lots of bubbling in return reservoir with low fluid in reservoir with hard start ups, runs very rough but then smooths out once started....no antifreeze on ground.
Not able to do it myself so looking...
I hear ya, 28 weeks is WAY to long to wait for anything with a deposit and not good communication, so frustrating!
I hope u get it sorted out and u might have to threaten court, some times that’s what is needed to get them to understand how serious you are about wanting your deposit back..
Yes on the same diameter like 1911 said, don’t go smaller.
I have 3/8 150’ synthetic on my Warn 8274 and I have 100’ extension just in case nothing is close by..
80’ of rope on a winch is nothing especially if u have to do a redirect, u will run out of rope really quick..extension are the way...
Did u pull apart your clutch fork with spring and detent ball and Clean em up and then lube it on assembly?
On my 8274’s I can go a little past the detent as well, common for most 8274’s but it has to be in the detent for proper operation..
I have the 70865 motor on one of my 8274’s
I don’t know if this is true but someone said the 70865 motor is 7hp…yes, just hearsay but Warn is the one who would know but there not coughing up the info/specs on this motor for some weird reason….
That’s a great price!
I paid just over $200 about 6 years ago or so for one..
The Warn 70865 Motor is over $400..not sure if this motor is equil or better than the 68608…I can’t find any specifications at this time.
