When shifting manually my 80 seems to not care that I’ve put it into first/L gear with the transmission shifter. (I am not having a problem with my xfer
H&L) When driving in D it behaves completely normal.
1. Taking off with shift selector in L it drives in 1st just fine until it...
I just need to borrow a space to do a front axle service myself. It could even be outside, I do not care, I just need somewhere to work on it. I moved here two weeks ago and my inner axle seal blew today.
I also wouldn’t mind getting to know some others that go wheelin in the area.

So my life just saw a big white 80 here in Tyler Texas and she thought it was me at first so I know there's another 80 here in town (turns out it wasn't me). Anyone? Anyone?
We just moved to Tyler Texas BTW.
So, do any other mud members live here or somewhere Texas sized close?
I was able to bring my '93 80 and my son's '97 LX450 but I had to leave my 40 on my Colorado mountain property. We just had too many dang vehicles to get here and I don't have room or time for it yet.
I relocated my...
I do periodically check the torque on my steering arm bolts ( I've heard the horror stories) I just apparently don't check them enough! Here I sit at the end of the rock garden on Spring Creek with one severely pigeon toed land cruiser. Four holes on the bottom of the knuckle; two studs are...

I'm getting my 40 back in the next few months and the wrenching will start. I've got some questions on what has worked for you guys so I know what works and what doesn't. Yes I have read many of the build up threads, I just wanted some opinions w/o having to reread them all.
I plan on running a...
I thought I could get away with these on my wife's daily driver.

I was running a real mild trail yesterday because we went by ourselves and I didn't want to break anything. Just on the forest road getting to the trail I backed out of the way of an oncoming truck in a narrow section of the road and ran right into a fricken tree! I was too busy watching my side...
Hey guys I just found a busted right rear brake line, the one that goes from wheel cylinder to wheel cylinder on my '77 40.
I'd like to see if I can get one tonight. If not then tommorrow would work.
I'm out in Aurora, but, I get around.
Tooth Fairy es esta in las Colorado!

Hey guys I'm here now and my 80 isn't doin' so good. Sumthin' happened while I was away for two months and I've got bad vibrations from the rear shaft.
More than likely it's owner inflicted from a while ago and reared it's ugly head now. So with all my fire fighter testing and interviews and...
I don't know what's causing this, but, I drove her 80 t'day and it scared the crap out of me.
What I've noticed;
Seemingly random loss of pedal pressure.
Sometimes it will stop fine and other times I have no brakes.
ABS activates and I have no stopping at all.
Maintains pedal pressure...
