It does OK at hwy speeds. It just takes a while to get there! However at 8 mpg, I don't take it on many long trips.
I didn't re-gear it so you pretty much have to take it out of OD if there is much of an incline, and depending on how steep you might have to downshift further, but she does...
1989 FJ62 SOA "Beast!"
OFF ROAD SEASON IS HERE! DON”T MISS OUT ON THIS FANTASTIC CRUISER!
:crybaby: I really hate to sell my beloved Land Cruiser, but being unemployed, I have no choice. :crybaby:
Asking price is $4750, Or Best Offer. Cruiser is located in Vancouver, WA. I am willing to...
...I'd check for a leak. ...
...You need to re-read his post. He said OBVIOUS things. Duh....
Man, I'm radio tech, not a mechanic but if there's a puddle it seems pretty OBVIOUS there's a leak!!!!
I thought it was a pretty funny response!
My company rig is a 2001 Durango. It gets about 12-13 around town and about 15 highway.
It's an OK rig (especially since I'm not paying for it!).
That being said, I'd much rather drive my Cruiser (89 FJ-62 w/291K) but with the stock 3FE and 35" tires it gets a whopping 8 mpg.
It sits a...
I dump a can of this in my cruiser every other oil change or so.
It's the only "gimmick" stuff that I've used that actually helps.
It stopped our 87 Tercel from smoking altogether!
For about $10 it's worth a shot!
I've got one off a 92.
The guy I bought it from had just driven if from Denver to Portland and pulled it to do a diesel swap. He said it was in fine shape, just couldn't use it with his new motor/tranny.
It has about 190K on it. We can certainly work a deal!
I bought it attached to...
When I rebuilt the transfer case on my FJ62 mine looked like that too.
I had no problem getting it from the dealer. Seems to me it was somewhere around $50 IIRC, but don't trust my memory!
I replaced it and the bearings that ride on it.
FSM = Factory Service Manuals
They can be had from a number of different sources; eBay, here on Mud and your local dealer just to name a few.
The Factory Manuals are FAR superior to any Haynes or Chilton manuals.
They are pretty much a requirement if you are going to do any serious...
Nope won't work.
Ask me how I know! Wanna buy a tranny and transfer case!!!
The 92 is full time 4WD and used a different transfer case. The output shaft on the tranny is different.
On the FJ62, the output shaft goes all the way through the transfer case and has a big nut on the back...
I have the Cobra 75WX, which is the unit where the whole radio (mostly anyway!) is in the microphone.
There is a small interface box, about 1/2 the size of a deck of cards, that I mounted in dash and the small pigtail sticks out through a hole in the dash.
This way I can keep the "radio"...
