    First off please forgive me for starting another thread on the subject, but I figured there might be some new info out there. Also, ever since I got my new cruiser a year ago I really haven't been too active on the site like I was years ago with my first cruiser and I'd like to rectify that...

    3B Head gasket GUIDES, looking for a part number or dimensions/picture

    I've searched and searched and cannot find a part number for the head stud guides. I've combed through the part number sticky and just can't seem to find it. I've also looked through the FSM and EPC and don't see anything listed, although it says to reinstall the head gasket over them. They are...

    2f head gasket

    I have a 2f in a 1978 fj40 that was rebuilt by PO in 2012. The engine may have 100 miles on it. Now the oil is getting water in it. I am thinking pulling the head and redoing the head gasket and then go from there. What would you guys recommend? Thank You

    Blown Head Gasket 2.5 Years Ago...

    I just bough a 1997 Land Cruiser with 140k miles. The head gasket blew 2.5 years ago and has been sitting ever since. I drained the oil the other day and the oil wasn't all that brown and milkshakey, however there was coolant in the oil. I got about 12 quarts of oil/coolant out when I pulled the...

    What are the current thoughts on buying pre- or post-major work for used 80s

    In 2017, low mileage for FZJ80's is considered under 200,000 miles. It's more common to find them in the 215-230,000 mile range. What are the big things that start to come up around the 20-year, 200k mile mark? And with that in mind, would you rather buy one that has had the major work due...

    2001 Blown head Gasket

    I just bought a 2001 LC with 201k miles that has a blown head gasket. I have replaced a few head gaskets before on various makes and models of cars so I was not too scared of buying something that needed some serious work. That and the vast knowledge of members and good threads on this site...

    Quick Head Gasket Part# Question

    I recall reading that Toyota came out with a revised head gasket to address failures with the initial gaskets used at the factory. Is there a specific part number I should look for or just pick up what the Toyota dealer says is correct? On that note, can anyone confirm the part number? Thanks guys.

    Using Up Coolant

    So I have a 1994 Fzj80 and since I've got it it's had a CE light for the EGR valve and has occasionally spit out a little smoke at startup, but it's not white. And that was all untill I took a drive from Phoenix up to Flaggstaff and I used a full reservoir of coolant, then I filled up and now...

    Blown Head Gasket! Right!?

    I posted this in the "General" section and got zero replies. So, at the risk of getting my wrist slapped by the moderators, I'm re-posting here. I picked up this 2F engine some time ago. The seller said it had a blown head gasket. So... I'm tearing into it. I've never blown a head gasket, nor...
