Thanks to @Redbj40 for doing all the hard work and giving away his secrets for a few beers, I'll be putting this lump into a BJ42!
15BFT, 4.1L mechanical inline injection pump, factory turbo goodness. I think it's from a Coaster due to the turbo piping and front hump sump.
Updates will be slow...

Hey fellow 40 Lovers, Looking at having a 42 Harness replicated and trying to get a feel to see if they’d sell I guess, They would be direct plug and play and looking at how many owners might be interested in a compete loom. Hope to hear back in regards! #40lyfe
Hi, so I now own an ‘84 FJ40 (from Brunei) and an ‘82 BJ42 (from France). The French car is being used as a donor vehicle.
I was just wondering what the ratios are on the front axle? I’m hoping they’re the same so I can swap them.
I recently came across a 1980 BJ42 LX (factory ac, power steering, 3B engine) for sale semi-locally. The first set of photos I received was pretty promising. Owner assured me that the vehicle runs well, but the body will "need some work". My Dad and I are a fairly handy pair, so I...
So I ended up talking with the owner and got some details figured out. Second owner since 1990 is a woman (wife of owner) who never used it for off road and she kept it in meticulous care and service, undercoated yearly and has gotten a recent clean and scrape. It has 400,000 km on it. It...
Just bought my first 40 series. Canadian diesel BJ42 1980 3b diesel with 4 spd.
The shippers were able to drive it on the truck well enough but when it arrived 3 days later, it can hardly pull itself.
Transfer lever makes no difference regardless of position (previous owner said...
Up for sale is a 1982 BJ42 with 370k km (229k miles). This has a 3B diesel with the typical factory 4 speed and has a 24v electrical system. This rig has been garage kept since I bought it. It is my weekend warrior, drive it at least two days a week and the drive train is very reliable. I...
Been thinking about doing this for a while but would any one on here be interested in watching a Canadian dudes semi-professional documentary YouTube series on restoring a vintage Land Cruiser? I’m doing 99-100 percent of the work myself and will be uploading shortly. I’ll add a...
After fifteen years for messing around with diesel trucks and dual sport motorcycles, I find myself in Bogota, Colombia where I am surrounded by awesome Land Cruisers every day. It's gotten to the point that I can't resist anymore, and I have to take the plunge. In spite of the...
Looking for a body tub or rear half tub for my 83 BJ42 build in SF bay area, thanks! Also interested in a good condition frame, passenger door, ambulance doors and a roof panel and willing to drive a few hundred miles or so for pickup if needed.
It is time for the next curator for a couple of Land Cruisers. For sale is a 3B diesel 1982 BJ42 left hand drive and a 1966 FJ40 plow truck w/ pto winch. I would like to sell them as a package deal but will separate if need be. I will also list this in the FJ40 section.
The '82 BJ42 is a...
