I got the car some days before. The car has almost 300k km on it. It has a 4.5 I6 1fz engine.Its all stock. I am looking to restore it to absolute glory. Btw original paint.
-I feel the engine runs little rough
-All shocks are weak, (should i change springs aswell, stock ofcourse)
I am trying to figure out how to change the transmission in my 97 FZJ80 and get more gears. One of the biggest hurdles is keeping the CEL off, (I live in an emissions tested area).
Over the years on Mud, every time I read about someone thinking of a manual swap, it was shot down because of ecm...
I'm most likely about to do a rebuild on my 1FZ engine ('95 model with 289k miles). For you folks who have done this, I've got a few questions:
- What online rebuild kit/part suppliers do you like? I've read a few folks mentioned on this forum, but am not sure how to find them (ie. I've seen...

Anyone used torque plates on bore or hone jobs for their engine?
Did you use aluminum or steel plate and what are your thoughts?
Did you take multiple before and after bore measurements, and if so, how did it turn out?
I am doing a diagnostic teardown and blueprint job.
1FZ engine building and...
The FJ Company is looking for used 1FZ-FE engines.
If you have engines for sale or even entire 80 series chassis we will consider them. We want good useable donors so running condition is important. Blown HG is not a deal breaker.
Auto trans and transfer cases will be considered with...
Putting a 93 back together after rebuild.
1) I have a 1/4 " hose that comes from a port on head under cylinder 5ish. In the first photo, it can be seen coming up behind air intake chamber. I may have incorrectly routed it up and it may need to go back down. I cannot find where it's supposed...
I've bought a used engine, trans, and transfer to build up and replace in my '97 80. Doing this as a hobby as I like building engines. Nothing wrong with what I have except it's gutless and guzzles.
Plan to do a TRUE blueprint just because I can and like doing it ( I know every one will say...
Just bought a 96 model 1FZ manual with a blown head gasket to repair. The plan is to update my 83 dual cab hilux with this.
So pulled the head to find the gasket had blown, no surprise. But on further inspection the bores have pitting from water sitting in the cylinders 1 and 6.
So here is the...
Came out of my 1996 150k.
Had a slight knock. Rotates by hand fine. Never been rebuilt.
It's the bottom end only. No oil pans. Crane and pistons are still in it.
Price free is someone will use it, it's just sitting here.
How long do you wait after the engine has switched off to check the engine oil?
Manual states to wait a "few minutes"
I do it at 5 minutes others at 3,10,8...etc
I don't think it makes much of a difference I'm just curious.
