    Paper gasket between Water Inlet Housing and Water Pump?

    I can't find any mention of a paper gasket potentially installed between the LC100 water inlet housing and the water pump anywhere, so I'm throwing a "fish hook" out there to see if anybody else has run into this, and to hear from those of you who have already successfully made this repair...

    Another overheating thread, cab heater tap??

    I have had an overheating issue in my 1990 hj60 since I bought it 12 months ago. I have replaced the entire cooling system under the bonnet with the exception of the radiator which was taken apart and rodded and it just about spotless. After extensive research I have heard occasionally mentioned...

    Thermostat question

    So I have begun replacing parts on my cooling system starting with the radiator and all of the radiator hoses. Today I decided to take apart the thermostat housing, and to my surprise there is no thermostat. I have had no issues with my engine running cool, it typically holds 180* on long drives...

    Hey everyone, the radiator in my FJ60 has developed a small crack at the top neck. I've been searching for replacements but I've noticed I don't have the normal radiator setup. I have a 6AT Cummins in my truck and the inlet and outlet are on opposite sides of where they normally would be. My...

    Name this part

    I have this piece that is broken off at the top of my engine bay. It's a part of what I believe to be a control valve for the cooling system. I can't find the part number or name of it. Any ideas?

    ' 67 Cooling System Puzzle

    So we got our '67 up and running (just an engine on a frame at this point). All good except for the cooling system. After warming up and the thermostat opening, coolant started pouring out the overflow outlet. My first thought were the little bits of solder that I found in the new aftermarket...

    Cooling system questions...

    So I installed an aluminum radiator in my '78 FJ40. I seem to be chasing a leak through the cooling system. I have been replacing hoses along the way and have replaced the radiator cap. I have burped the cooling system to make sure all air removed. It feels like I am getting to much pressure in...
