Hello, just purchased a bj73 , 1985 3B body has no rust and interior is quiet clean. Exterior paint is not bad, few scratches, Engine has 600,000kms though. Wondering what a rough price for Australia would be.? Has a bulbar small tyres, spotlights roof fack just general small things.
Planning a PAH trip later this year (starting in fall) and looking to pick up an older Land Cruiser for the trip.
Was thinking about a BJ73 (w/ 197K miles & the 3.4L diesel) and wanted to get the communities input - would you recommend this 2-door for the trip in terms of overall...
Picking up a new BJ in a week or so, it has 700,000kms on the 3b N/A engine. was thinking it will need a new one eventually, how hard is it to chuck a 1hz in? I have very little mechanical knowledge and would be paying someone to do it.
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...

This truck is practically a 'mud celebrity at this point... for sale is our beloved BJ73, "Moose."
I bought Moose from Ratpuke back before I had a wife, a house, or a child... now that I have all three my transportation priorities have changed and he needs to move on...

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...
