    RIP CSC#007, Kevin Patterson AKA Tools R Us

    I don't log in to this site much any longer but stumbled across this post today. Very sad to hear this news. Kevin helped me numerous times with various FJ80 issues and mods and was always selfless with his time and insight. Rest easy, Kevin.

    For Sale FZJ80 Front Axle Rebuild Kit

    I purchased all parts from Cruiser Dan at American Toyota a few years ago for a '94 Land Cruiser I no longer own. It was his standard parts kit for this work so you can be sure it includes everything. All parts are labeled (except for one - can't figure out what it is). Part # 90366-20003...

    Blown head gasket - 96 Taco 2.7L 3RZFE

    Just blew the head gasket on my '96 Tacoma with a 2.7L 3RZFE engine. Anyone local have any experience with this engine? I've never done a head gasket job myself and I'm probably going to try to tackle this one. I'm going to need help with tear down order of all the stuff around it in the...

    Anyone do kydex sheaths? Tucson area

    Jason with TCB Firearms and Holsters does great work for very reasonable prices. https://www.facebook.com/TCB.Firearms?ref=br_tf Hit him up with what kind of gear you're needing to have made -- he does custom work all the time. I have a holster from him for my G19 and he's made two custom...

    12" or 14" aux electric fan

    I've had one on there before and it worked well for reducing the AC temps. It failed a few years ago and is actually the precipitating event that led me to doing the fan clutch mod in the first place. I've increased the oil weight two times in the three years since I first did the mod, and...

    12" or 14" aux electric fan

    Huh - not sure. It's gotta be OEM. I've never replaced it. That's the only part of the cooling system that didn't get replaced two years ago. It did give it a thorough washing -- put a 90 degree elbow on the end of a garden hose and ran it behind the condenser. The fins are in good...

    Little Help?

    I might be able to help if you can PayPal me the funds to buy them. I'd be happy to hang onto them in my garage until you're able to come pick them up. I live in the north part of PHX so the seller is pretty close to my AO.

    Radiator flushing adapters available

    Just did mine the past weekend. Complete drain and flush with the Prestone kit. Your mod looks like a better option, especially for anyone who's just interested in a quick flush of the radiator. I hadn't flushed mine in over three years and I was very happy with the quality of the coolant...

    12" or 14" aux electric fan

    I've debated this topic ad nauseam and for most of you guys the blue fan clutch mod with a heavy weight oil and no aux fan works great. But for others, it does not. I've learned a lot from those multitude of threads on the topic, and the input from Kevin and others has been invaluable but I'm...

    Ok this is REALLY REALLY dumb but..

    I am a weird-ass prepper and the potential for EMP damage to the electronics of a vehicle is highly over rate IMO. There has only been one conclusive test of high altitude EMP propagation, and that was operation Starfish Prime in 1962 in the South Pacific. The resulting damage was greater than...

    12" or 14" aux electric fan

    Blue fan clutch was done a few years ago. Last year I changed the oil to 30K weight. The fan is as stiff as Michael Jackson in a petting zoo and it pulls air so hard the Cruiser would take flight if it had wings. AC still sucks balls at idle in traffic and low speeds. With no air moving over...

    Idle issues and oil pressure gauge not working!

    I can tell you the black connector slides in an up/down orientation. Not push/pull like the gray/white connector. The "button" style contact in the center of the sensor matches with the flat back of the black connector.

    12" or 14" aux electric fan

    Anyone have a 12" or 14" aux electric fan they want to get rid of? I'm going on a 3 day trip this coming weekend and poor planning has put me in position to either pay $100+ for a new one or check the scrap yards. Figured I'd check here first. Any brand in working condition will do...

    Idle issues and oil pressure gauge not working!

    Found it. Found two plugs - a gray one and a black one. Black one is disconnected. There's only one prong on the sensor. No dangling wire anywhere that I can find. I have no idea where to plug in this black plug. *sorry for the thread hijack. *Found some good pics in this thread. Looks...
