So I changed my big end bearings last weekend and need some advice.
I Replaced the original OEM bearings (marked with "4", BEB Pictures Here) with standard size taiho. The old bearings looked ok and all of the rod journals looked good. I plastigauged only cylinder #4 and it was right in...
I went and looked at to early 80's Canadian BJ60's yesterday, and am looking for some advice
One BJ60 had an engine in good condition, but a completely rotton body. I have no experience in body work and do not want to take on that project.
The second BJ60 had a reletivly good...
I was wondering if anybody here can recommend one of the knock off snorkels? If they are of similar quality to a Safari Snorkel I can't imagine paying $300 more for one.
Also curious if they come with a template and how hard they are to install.
I have been at this for a week and a half and still can't get my truck running right. Here's what I did:
2. While I was doing that I accidentally broke off knock sensor entire connection
3. Installed new knock sensor, but sketchy old connector, Code 55 and no power
4. I soldered in a new...
It ONLY does this when it gets warm and comes up to temperature.
Has anyone else out there had this same problem ???
Have any ideas? Let me know, thanks
Please check the video

I broke off the knock sensor during PHH as stated in previous thread, knew one on the way. I temporarily glued the broken one.
Drove on the freeway today <10 miles after new radiator, PHH, thermostat, and heater valve. As soon as I got on it started running really rough and really weak, very...
I searched, but didn't find much of anything. Is there any way at all possible for a bad knock sensor to cause a P0401 code without throwing a P0325 or 330 code?
Back story: completely took off intake manifold to have hot tanked, broke connectors on TVV and rear knock sensor when unplugging...
1993 FZJ80 335k miles
She has purred like a kitten for the past 23k miles since I got her. Yesterday the low oil light came on (she burns a fair amount, no leaks). I dumped a couple of quarts of Delo 15w-40 in and drove on.
Today I pulled on the interstate and heard the noise below. I was on...
Over the last week, my 95 FJ80 has started knocking or thumping (felt through the foot rest) at various speeds between 28-55mph. It is felt through acceleration and de-acceleration at roughly the same speeds. I can replicate it easily going through the speed range. It seems to be...
So I will try and upload a video with sound tomorrow.
I have an rpm dependent knock/tapping even with the vehicle sitting still starting at 2500. below that the engine is quiet (reasonably) for a 2f.
truck was down for about a year. Vacuum is good, not blowing oil and none In...
working on an 80 series, I believe the black connector is the knock sensor connector, correct? what about the green one?
If anyone has any of these used or has proper part #s for a 95 I would appreciate it. I need the 2 knock sensor connectors and the green one but not sure on what...
When I was back at my place in Nevada in mid-December, I started up my stock '84 FJ60 (~182,000 miles) to let it run for a while, as I usually do while I'm out there. It's been sitting (off and on) for almost nine years. Just before I parked it nine years ago I installed new plugs and wires...
My wife and I had anoyher baby a few weeks ago, so she hasn't been driving her 1997 LX450. (289k miles)
Today I decided to drive it to work so it wouldn't feel neglected.
Well.... As soon as I turned the key I started cringing ( KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCKING )
It sounded like it was...
Started feeling a slight vibration when changing gears.
After about 10-20 minutes I was driving in 5th and things seemed to go haywire (clutch slip I think?) and an extremely loud knock started causing me to pull over and turn off engine.
Knock is in time with RPMs
Initial look under hood...
I have an 1990 HDJ81 that sat outside in the cold (-10 - -15C) for about ten days without moving. When I started it, it idled rough so I gave it a wee bit of gentle throttle to help it, however this was likely before oil pressure came up. when I did this, it heard a dull low pitch...
