    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Finally got the fan shroud back in. I replaced the water pump and repainted the shroud. I think last time I did it was in the mid to late 90's.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    This just showed up on the flea bay. Up to $1 so far. Reserve hasn't been met. Too shiny for me and someone didn't take much care in the description. 1964 FJ cruiser (it is a 45) with an inline v6. There are no pictures of anything but the shiny paint...

    Storing your 40 outside???

    Tires will also rot if left outside. I have replaced mine 2x due to rot with plenty of tread left in ~30yrs. Also figure out how to disconnect the battery if you are not going to drive it regularly or if the wiring is at all suspect. I'm thinking I'd keep it in the garage especially in the humid...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    The amperage is the issue combined to some extent with RPMs. Then add in modern expectations and accessories. I have a m37 generator that puts out plenty of juice so you can run the truck and a military radio. I also have an old Austin Healey and you don't want to run the wipers, lights, and...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Exactly that. You can draw too many amps right out of the battery with no alternator present and smoke the system. Now if you have a bunch of demand and the wire from the alternator to the battery (and anything in the path e.g. the ammeter) are not up to the task then you can smoke all of that...

    I could use one. Mine has been broken for a while.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I have made a sail (genoa) from Sailrite with a friend for his boat. We used a normal sewing machine for all but the re-enforced corners. With that we had the ability to do a zig-zag stitch and so on. What kind of machine you need depends on how heavy the fabric is. The machine I use was set up...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    That's the beauty of an old carb - the rigs are harder to steal! By the time you figure out where the choke has to be set and how many times to pump the gas pedal where it will start but isn't flooded and so on... Most people don't have the patience to steal your car plus you will probably hear...

    I'll have to give that a shot when I get around to having to loosen that sucker.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    The only problem with that part is it would mean I have to get the bolt loose that goes on the block end and that probably means a torch, cursing, and possibly welding a new head on it once or twice. Other than that what a nice mod!

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I have not done a toyota one but I have redone a few carbs. Typically you can just replace the shaft since most all of the wear is in the shaft not the body. The shaft itself would be something easy enough to make if you have a small mill or even a drill with an x/y table and a slitting saw plus...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    They don't salt the roads there so you don't have to fear the rot. They do sand/gravel them so rock chips are a thing. I don't know how it is now but there used to be passes that were closed to all but 4wd with chains on all 4 during the winter. The Mt Hood/Hwy 26 pass was one. My favorite pass...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I have one somewhere and never use it. I can sharpen by hand better than the little machine. That said I also have a universal grinder if I need something super symmetric but then i also have the means to just bore the hole and if it is super critical you're going to need a reamer!

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    One of at least 2 hassles with headers. I had a guy silver solder a different route and then put heat shield tube over mine. The other hassle is your PTO drive trying to negotiate the limited space between the header and block.

    Cleaning up an old burn pile. Fuel cans in the back with a few bags of tools and chainsaws.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    New fan belt today. Doesn't sound like much but it is the last annoying thing when driving it. The belt would start to squeal at cruising speed. This truck is pretty much in running condition after sitting for 4 years and only driven once or twice a year for a few years before that. Now I am...

    just filled out the form and there was no mention of a VIN. You can mention 5 parts and then there is a comment section at the end.

    Got the reverse light housing replaced and fixed the wire. I got my bullet connectors from https://easternbeaver.com (no affiliation) but they are a good product so giving a shout out. They are in Japan so you get to wait a little and pay shipping so order a decent sized pack. I ordered the 4mm...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    No idea what shocks I have on mine but I do know they are well over 30yrs old. It might be time to replace them :) I am looking hard at some pins I can pump grease into as well.
