    Newbie hit a roadblock- Running rough

    I bought my 1994 FZJ80 about two months ago. Previous owner thought he threw a bearing therefore needed a motor swap. He provided a 'running' replacement 1fz-fe in the price. I knowingly bought it as a project and a learning opportunity. I haven't run into any roadblocks swapping the motors in...

    Dial indicator suggestion for genuine Toyota 1hz 1hdt IP timing tool ?

    Managed to pick up a new genuine Toyota tool for setting injector pump timing on 1hz and 1hdt motors. Is there a specific type of dial indicator required to go with it or just any one that has the right thread and scaling? Thanks, craig.

    2H Timing Diesel Tech in SoCal

    So, my injector pump was apparently in need of a rebuild so instead sourced an allegedly working pump from Canada. My mechanic (not a diesel expert) said he could put it in and he did. It is smoking a ton and is not running well. He claims the pump is bad but I have reason to believe that it...
