In my 2F rebuild I used the ARP bolts as I believed at the time it would be an improvement over OEM.
Probably was overkill but it worked well .
Very important that the heads needs to be cut as shown in picture . I asked the guys that did balancing of the engine parts to do the cutting of the...
I am aware of two cases where the bracket broke
Both cases it happened in cars that were heavy laden . One on a trip in Botswana and one in Namibia.
By no means a common occurrence.
A few of my fellow 100 series owners here have strengthened the bracket by welding a steel plate onto the sides...
New to the 100 section. (sold my 60 2FE and then UK spec 80 GS with 1HDFT )
Recently acquired a 100 GXL Australia spec 2001 HDJ. Getting older and wanted auto box and softer ride of IFS.
There is one thing I cannot find the answer for : what is this threaded bolt's purpose under the front...
Upgraded ECU ( Keeping old one as a spare in case it fails in the bush) . Same manufacturer ( Spitronics ) so using the same harness .
Gained a bit of KW and Torque. Car drives very smoothly now and maintaining 14,7 AFR most of the time
166HP and 261 Ft/Lb on the wheels ( 33")
I fitted the 3FE dizzy . ( no weights or vacuum )
It could be that the wiring is incorrect that feeds the ECU from the dizzy . Leading edge vs trailing edge . That could mess up the timing.
At least I know now what the timing is supposed to be .
The timing at idle corresponds with the ecu (...
Thanks guys, this is valuable info .
I should reach 30degrees with the 2fe at 8,5:1 CR and mild Delta 250s cam at WOT.
Now that it is confirmed I can start looking for the cause of the pinging and not settle for it at 17 degrees.
Here in South Africa we only have one grade of fuel (95 Octane...
I have done a 2F-E build with aftermarket ECU
With this I have to set the timing throughout the rev range using two maps , the first map is basic rpm/timing advance and the second map is vacuum ( from MAP sensor ) / advance & retard .
So provision is made for load and rpm in the software ...
So here is my setup . The pipes is a bit long but it works .
My Surge tank at the rear
The piping diagram is the same as with DickM's setup
With protective cover to shield flying rocks
Fuel Pump with filter ( that thing is more like a strainer )
And with the cover
I also retained the Mechanical fuel pump on my 2F-E . It feeds a surge tank from where the Walbro get the fuel to feed the fuel rail .
( BTW Fuel use : last tank 12MPG but I am using aftermarket ecu that still needs tweaking. Best so far 14MPG )
I cannot do the writeup of the conversion as it was done by a friend in South Africa .
It is a 1FZ-FE with H55F using the OEM ECU and harness .
Writeup can be found on "Land Cruiser club of South Africa" but you need to register on the site to see it and ask questions of the conversion
I did a trip in the Namib with my 2F prior to doing the 2F-e conversion. I got pretty far in most places but the really big dunes was too much for the 2F . Some of those dunes are over 100m high .
Had to take alternative route in a few places .
The guides are awesome so follow their lead.
