    2F Rod bolt broke

    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...

    Torsion Bar Adjuster is Broken

    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...

    2F-E in Africa - Lots of questions

    The extra 20 Nm at 1500-2000rpm makes daily driving a pleasure . Only problem is that first gear is now obsolete - I pull away in second . Feels like I can do with even larger wheels .

    Academical : Advance timing on 2F ( 3F ) throughout rev range

    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 (...

    Academical : Advance timing on 2F ( 3F ) throughout rev range

    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...

    Academical : Advance timing on 2F ( 3F ) throughout rev range

    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 ...

    2FE Build Opinions Needed

    DickM's setup with submerged pump is first prize . I wanted a reachable pump should it fail on trail. Re transmission : H55F with 4,56 diffs and 33" tyres .

    2FE Build Opinions Needed

    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 )

    1993 1FZ-FE complete drivetrain into 1989 FJ62?

    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

    Dune Driving with an FJ60: Is it doable??

    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. The...
