    3B diesel light blue/grey smoke on start up only

    Thanks rosco! Yeah and I agree..I like the originality also, and too be honest it’s not that bad driving it..it only lacks power going up a hill, other than that around town and freeway driving is perfect..cruises at 110k perfectly. What are your thoughts on a 13bt compared to the 14&15b turboed.

    3B diesel light blue/grey smoke on start up only

    Hi all thanks for your input. It’s strange it’s not doing it anymore…I did forget to mention I was camping at mt bulla so possibly it was the high altitude, I’ve always been sceptical about that but now that I’m back it’s not doing it anymore. I’ve also given it a good service so she seems to...

    3B diesel light blue/grey smoke on startup only

    Hi all, Need some advice or assistance on what can be cause of this: I’ve got a 1983 bj42 lx and I’ve taken it out for a long drive on a three day camping trip. It drove great and strong even on the high way and going up hill it pulled great, though when I started it the next morning after...

    3B bj42 crankcase breather

    Thanks for all that mate. Much appreciated. I drove it today and didn’t smoke at all maybe a faint mist when I looked under the car in park. And like you said when it’s warm she doesn’t vibrate at all. I guess she just has standard ware and tare. I’ll keep driving it as it is until it get really...

    3B bj42 crankcase breather

    Thanks for that mate. Does the compression get thanks mate. The compression was checked when they did the new injectors but they did it when it was cold…these are the numbers : Cyl 1 = 370psi Cyl 2 = 350psi Cyl 3 = 320psi Cyl 4 = 350psi. It’s a new truck for me and never had one before, just...

    3B bj42 crankcase breather

    Well it’s a older engine has 300k on it. It doesn’t do this all the time. And it’s not too much smoke. It does it every now and then. But it does have a few drips of oil over night..maybe size of 20c coin. Engine feels good…drives and pulls ok. 110km on the freeway with no worries, but soon as...

    Bj42 3b engine oil and service

    Yeah it runs fine… well from what I think, I’m just not familiar with these cars/engines to know how it should run. The injectors have all been replaced by one of the best diesel fuel guys in melb. It just idles rough when I’m at the lights waiting. Also it’s sluggish going up hill but that...

    Bj42 3b engine oil and service

    Legend!!! Thanks mate. Is there any tricks to cleaning the sedimenter? Hopefully this improves how the car runs. I still can’t work out the slight rough idle issue 🤦‍♂️.

    Bj42 3b engine oil and service

    Hi All, Im planing on servicing my Bj42Lx 3b landcruiser and was wondering if there is anything that I should change or check other than the things on a standard service. Also what engine oil should I use and I can’t seem to find how to change the gearbox/transmission oil (5speed). Sorry about...

    Fj45 engine swap recommendations

    Hi Byron…you make a good point. As for the engine..it’s running great with no leaks. I’m just not familiar with how reliable the 2f is and I do know she is a thirsty beast lol..maybe this sniper system will help. Though I think I might have to go 5speed to make freeway driving more comfortable.

    Fj45 engine swap recommendations

    Hi Greek Cruiserhead, Apologies I should remember to mention where I’m from. I’m in Australia. Hmm I might look into this sniper kit for the fuel economy. In regards to the bed, well there is a place in QLD Australia that modify the beds and sell them complete to suite the 40 series. Basically...

    Fj45 engine swap recommendations

    Hi White Stripe, yes it’s a new 79 series bed that’s been modified to fit. I waited around for a couple of years trying to find a original tub but just couldn’t find a good one and if I did find a rusted one they are selling for 3-4k Aus dollars. I didn’t want to wait around longer lol but I’d...

    Fj45 engine swap recommendations

    Hi All, Thought I’d start a convo to see what peoples thoughts are on what engine would be best to put in a fj45 to replace the 2f. I’ve just finished restoring my fj45 and about to rig it up to do some touring and im thinking about replacing the 2f for a different engine…or just keep the 2f...

    3B Diesel running rough on idle

    Thanks mate I’ll try that also. Doesn’t look like it’s been serviced in a while so maybe that will keep it happier. Thanks
