    Newly aquired LJ70 and BJ71

    Just acquired 2 new Land Cruisers that need some work. One is an 87' BJ71 (trying to figure out which motor is in this one as there's not a lot of markings) and the other is an LJ70 with the 2L-T (I know there's 2 versions of this and I'm assuming this is the earlier model).

    We just received our '88 LJ70 2.4TD from the shippers not too long ago and unfortunately we need a starter. I asked the Spanish mechanic to fix it just before we left, but apparently that was lost in translation and he only cleaned it, not replaced the parts. Anyway, can't cry over spilled milk...
