Curious, what kind of highway speeds could a H motor in that rig achieve. How much does it slow down when encountering a hill.
I haul my surfboards too and from the beach no hills. The "H" diesel is rated at 90 hp. It was originally sold at Bauer Toyota in Aupsburg (sp) Germany. My understanding is that it spent the majority of it's time exploring the Black Forrest. I bought it from a gentleman from BC about 5 years ago. Maybe a post or search on the diesel forum might help.
