    BJ73 timing mark

    Not on mine, but who knows, there may be other configurations. Mine has just two together, and then one further away.

    Anyone recommend somebody for an OME installation in Des Moines?

    I don't know about any shops, but if you're at all mechanically interested suspension isn't hard to install. There are plenty of people around to give you pointers and help you out if you get stuck. I'll Let the Des Moines-ers chime in.

    BJ73 timing mark

    I've searched like crazy and not found anything useful. The timing mark on the crank pulley... The engine manual (RM132E) only talks about one mark on the pulley. There are three on mine. Two about 1cm apart, and another maybe 5cm away. Which of these is TDC? Thanks for the help all. I'm...

    Hello from Illinois

    I forgot that website even existed. I made that for my dad probably 7 years ago. I should do something with it one of these days. That said none of the information is wrong. Of the two emails listed midamlandcruiser@qwestoffice.com is the better one.

    Help needed - water pump failure in Indianapolis

    Yup, we got her fixed and running good. Made it to Tennessee this evening in good shape for gsmtr tomorrow. Internet is sparse so a full write up will have to wait until next week. Thank you much everyone!

    Help needed - water pump failure in Indianapolis

    The leak has gotten pretty bad, it was hard to tell where precisely it was coming from. Wound up having SOR overnight one. Now that it's off it looks like it might just be the gasket, but at this point the water pump is already with the shipper. Ah well, at least I won't have to do it again...

    Help needed - water pump failure in Indianapolis

    So the water pump on my 85 BJ73 just went out about 300 miles from home on my way to GSMTR. Toyota says the nearest pump is in Portland Oregon. Any ideas/possibilities/thoughts. At this point my leading theory is to have spector overnight one here and stay the night.

    Darien Gap Jungle Expedition

    The chrome adds class, people paid more for that in the 80's.

    Kurt, as someone who was just recently in the area what are your opinions on issues with militias and the people?

    Darien Gap Jungle Expedition

    It could certainly get that way, especially if air support becomes necessary. Some sponsorships could maybe help, but sponsors need to know this is gonna be serious.

    Darien Gap Jungle Expedition

    An interview with Col Blashford-Snell that Overland Journal did a little while back. The good stuff starts at about 1:98

    Darien Gap Jungle Expedition

    This won't just be a test of planning or of the vehicles. It'll be a very physical one. During the Blashford-Snell expedition one man walked the entirety of the darien in front of both trucks, spotting for them. In fact both trucks were driven by one man as well. Mark Smith said when he went...

    Factory MWB Jump Seats?

    Its impressive, the way that truck is set up it can haul 8 people. They do look kinda practical... for small people.

    Factory MWB Jump Seats?

    So I saw this picture in this ebay listing. Was this a factory thing or did someone just add these in down in South America?

    Switching oil type

    5w40 is a common cold weather thing. I can't imagine its necessary in your climate. Hell, I run 15w40 down to 0F here in Illinois.

    Full Time 4WD

    In my opinion the locking center diff/ full time 4wd is THE BEST system for poor weather. I learned to drive in an 80, and it was absolutely unstoppable in snow and ice. To me it feels much better than the subaru. I think it must be the added weight and tire contact patch, but it feels much...

    3B crank pulley

    Yeah I was hoping for a new one, but no luck. The good news is that EBI in Canada had a used one on the shelf so all appears to be well. Thanks beno for doing the looking that you did.
