    Question about potential oil leak at front of engine- 1984 FJ60.

    Howdy, A few weeks ago I picked up my truck from Jim Dickey's repair shop, and it's running great. There were no apparent oil leaks when I dropped it off, and none when I picked it up. I know because around this time I had been inspecting it for anything wrong. Fast forward a few weeks; I'm...

    OIL LEAK - Transfer Case ???

    I've just noticed a small puddle of oil under my 2002 LX470. Looks like the leak is at the Drain Plug on the Transfer Case. I assume this is the Transfer Case? See photo.

    Compression Issues

    My new-to-me 85 FJ 60/192K was brought into the shop and the mechanic is telling me compression ranges from low 80's to 110 and is recommending a engine rebuild vs seal replacement. I'm trying to educate myself so not to get taken. I plan on getting a second opinion but questions should I be...

    Is the Mall Crawlers HG in danger?

    Edit----I'm an idiot who didn't even think about the Valve Cover gasket until after I posted. The VC gasket is most definitely toast. Sorry. Move along---- So I just finished replacing the O2 Sensors on my pretty stock 93 FZJ80 (230,000mi) and I did my typical under truck inspection. I...

    First time 80 series woes

    Whats up mud! Been on here for a long time mining land cruiser information. I finally bit the bullet and bought a 94 FZJ80 locally.
