    LX450 baseline project

    After a couple of days spraying PB blaster, today I was able to loose the inspection knuckles bolts , tomorrow I will try to add some grease, seems like they are dry. No clunks or clicking when turning. I don’t know if there are more grease fittings, in the driveshafts for example?

    A few more pictures of her “good side” The aesthetic stuff is her strength, the big issues are some rust and a very damaged exhaust system.

    Question about the transmission coolant hoses to radiator on FZJ80

    Thanks for everyone for the reply! It was a transmission hose, I damaged it when pushed down the fan shroud. It was ATF. The radiator had the metal connection in a good angle to open the drain, but too high for the fan shroud. I adjusted, replace the transmission lines, added ATF and coolant...

    My LX450 is missing the exhaust manifold heat shields. Also looking for springs, ideally no lift. Almost anything is better than my rusted out springs. Let me know what you have!

    According to the owner, this is the little fella that may be not working… I will see if I can free it up with wd-40 as the troubleshoot link suggests. In this case the differential is locked all the time? Or worst and is the actuator the faulty one?

    No heat, great words of wisdom. I lay out what I want to do with the car before spending the money, and analyze if is convenient to do the purchase. It’s a long term project to be my third vehicle, for the occasional road trip to the mountains, the beach, or on the snow. The goal is to use...

    Thanks! I have searched but most of the answer are with the CDL mod. This one I assume is stock, and shouldn’t turn on without the mod.
