    Boise Idaho: Looking for reliable shop to rebuild engine

    Hi all, Picked up a rust free 60 a few months and she needs a rebuild. I have a small 2 month window where I’m living on jobsite to have the rig worked on, searching for a shop. SNLC and foreign auto are heavily booked but reached out to import engine supply who said they could do it for 6 G...

    Engine Rebuild Process

    First post of any substance. I met someone whose 170K 2007 LX470 overheated. Diagnosis revealed the cause to be due to transmission fluid in the antifreeze solution. Leading to overheating and a blown upper radiator tank. Assume the transmission cooler inside the radiators opened up and that was...

    Top Shelf Toyota Shop Recommendations

    I live in San Francisco. My FZJ80 has 250k and leaks oil as one might expect. I'm considering a complete engine block rebuild including new gaskets, but not qualified to do it myself. Can anyone recommend a top-notch Landcruiser mechanic or engine rebuild shop in the bay area. Willing to travel...

    1997 FZJ80 Rehabilitation

    Back-story: Hi all, I've been a Mud member for about two years now. Thanks to this site I bought my 80 from another member in 2018 and have been enjoying it ever since. It's a 1997 so it's got that 1FZ-FE inline goodness under the hood. Currently sitting around 248K on the odometer. I bought it...

    1FZ Engine rebuild

    I'm most likely about to do a rebuild on my 1FZ engine ('95 model with 289k miles). For you folks who have done this, I've got a few questions: - What online rebuild kit/part suppliers do you like? I've read a few folks mentioned on this forum, but am not sure how to find them (ie. I've seen...

    Should I rebuild my 1FZ-FE? How to make an informed decision?

    There are 296,000 miles on my LX450 and I just blew the head gasket on the way home from my last wheeling trip. I pulled over on the side of the highway to start a DVD for my 3 year old, and saw that my Ultra Gauge was reading 249 degrees F, so I pulled deeper off the shoulder and saw the big...

    Oil explosion in engine compartment...What the H&@¥!

    Driving down the highway in my DD, a 94 FZJ80 (rebuilt engine 3 years ago) when my oil pressure suddenly drops and the oil light comes on. I get off the next exit and pull into a gas station. When I open the hood, oil is everywhere and looking under the engine I can't pinpoint the source because...

    Rebuilding My Engine!

    Hey everyone! Today was day 2 of taking the 80 apart and stripping the engine. As I mentioned in my other post, I am having a shop do the actual engine build. But I am removing it and reinstalling it. To be honest, I feel a little overwhelmed right now and wish I didn't start this...

    FZJ100 Head on on LX450

    The motor on my 1fz-fe just hit 200K today. I expect it to run quite a bit longer but have ben doing a bunch of research on a rebuild or V8 swap in about two years.

    **HELP!!** 1997 80 in serious need of some engine help (possible swap or rebuild?!)

    So Friday night on my weekly trip home (a 350 mile journey that I've been doing for the past ~6 months and will continue to do until I can sell my house) I had just topped a large hill when I swear i heard a clunk (was listening to some talk radio via headphones so it's hard to say where it came...

    Rice's 1FZ-FE rebuild Thread

    Not really anything new here that you can't find in the 80's tech section. Just some documentation of the journey to get rid of the tick-tick-tick in my current motor and, once the new engine is in, my "2 Week" endeavor into adding some boost via turbo. I will edit in pictures as time allows...

    Engine pull and rebuild, final thoughts…

    Well after 5 weeks, not all of it working on the engine, it is back in the rig and runs great. To say this did not go smooth is an understatement; a number of things went wrong, were missing or just plain would not work. Had everything fallen into place I would not have rebuilt the bottom end...
