Im getting conflicting info from different sources if this conversion would help me get up hills without slowing down.
Currently with a 3B and thinking to make the upgrade.
Some say definitely, some say not so much.
Wondering if the extra cost will be worth it.
The 3B has a blown out...
I have been reading up on fitting a five speed gearbox into the BJ45 Troopy for a while but think I have confused myself. It seems to be straight forward in the late vehicles, 1984 or so but the earlier ones I have seen from around 1982 still have the gearbox parking brake and I recall reading...

Has anyone deleted the clutch booster from a BJ73? If so, what master cylinder works?
Reasons why I want to do this:
-The booster is stuffed and NLA; currently just acting as a long connecting rod between my pedal and master cyl.
I need a new drivers seat for my old BJ73. It has been repaired a few times and back support is pretty poor and the thing is quite uncomfortable. The roadworthiness test failed it and I don't think they will accept aftermarket seats. The only seats local to me are from an HJZ75 in good...
I have been looking at 3B threads regarding where to tap oil pressure/oil feed from for a turbo. at the moment all i want is a second oil pressure gauge and future oil feed.
a lot of threads are for 40 series where access is available to the factory blanked plugs forward of the stock oil...

I have just discovered that the FRP top on my BJ73 is missing nearly all the bolts that secure the rear of it to the sides of the vehicle. I think there are 4 per side and there is only one on the right and none on the left!
My question is: should there be a rubber strip between the FRP top...
I Purchased by BJ73 with no AC compressor, sourced one today and installed it but was a bit baffled because there was no where to plug it in... the single wire to the clutch to activate it.
Looking at the wiring diagram below this is what i am looking for, i think.
I believe i have the VSV...
