    HJ61 24v vs 12v

    Hello all, I’m new here and new to my cruiser in general. Just got a 1989 HJ61 RHD turbo diesel 12HT and am needing to learn more. Alternator just went out and so I am trying to understand the pros and cons of 24v vs 12v. Is the 24volt system just good for more starting power in cold climates or...

So the van had no vaccum going to the brake booster and the vacuum pump on the alternator was doing nothing so I replaced the alternator and still no vaccum?

    Had a pretty terrifying breakdown yesterday and curious if anyone has experienced this before. Was driving on the highway when what’s displayed in the image occurred.

    G'day, I've just signed up in hope to shed some light on the problem I've got in my hj61 1986 12ht. I feel like I've read all threads related to charging issues read the workshop manual and done a tonne of Google searches and work on the cruiser with no luck. I was driving when the dash...

    Mercedes Om617 with tachometer(fix?) Using alternator.

    I had a heck of a time finding any information on this subject. I'm doing an om617 swap and am using the Dakota digital dsl-1e unit. In order to get a signal from the alternator you need a "w" connection, well the stock Benz alternator and the Saab 900 alternator don't have one stock so you need...

    Death of a star ter?

    A no-start issue has me wondering how does a starter act as it dies? Do they tend to go quickly or slowly? Does it somehow gain friction, or does it simply do nothing? Battery charger is telling me the battery is charged but everything else says otherwise... freakin mysterious pixies.

    Over Voltage (16v) problem and the possible solution

    In case this helps anyone in the future. Before I purchased my 1 owner 2001 LX, the service records state they replaced the alternator with a Factory refurbished alternator about 20,000 miles ago. I don’t know what their problem was. As soon as I purchased my 2001 LX, I replaced that...

    Your Opinion: Top 5 Upgrades for FJ60?

    I think all of us agree that the FJ60 is an incredible vehicle. I learned to drive in our FJ60 in La Paz, Bolivia, during the 1980s when my father was aerial mapping coca drug labs for DOD. It saved my ass when I rear-ended a Bolivian Cholo Bus (like the one below) -- I hit it hard and the...
