I blew it up...he cried, now I need to fix it...we do not have the time or facilities to do it our selves as I have told Woody...

Is there a mechanic or machine shop in the Midwest, meaning Wisconsin/Minnesota area, that specializes in Land Cruiser rebuilds...we want to do a complete overhaul and spice it up too! We would like to use the engine we have, sentimental value and all...eventhough buying one in a crate would be simple...

PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF ANYONE YOU KNOW! I looked online and got nowhere. I even looked in the IH8MUD Links...no mechanics.

Thanx for the help...Liz

Poser on this board is in Farmington MN, south of the Twin Cities. PM him and he will either accomodate you or send you in the right direction. I have done a fair amount of business with him and have nothing but nice stuff to say about him. Great guy who will not let you go in a bad direction.

Steve (poser) is the man.

My truck would be a lot nicer if he was working on it and not me!


Bailey,



If I was working on it and you were not, you would not be earning all those 'Land Cruiser Kollege Kredits'...You have a good instructor at home there with David...hope to see him in a few weeks, you should figure a way to tag along to OK in NOV....


They will come in handy someday, and most likely, not having anything to do with a Land Cruiser.




Good luck!

That whole midwest thing kills me. :rolleyes:

Someone the other day was referring to OK city as the midwest. There's no fawkin way that that is west in any way. MN or WI either for that matter. Here, please refer to this map I made for everyone when referencing what is west, midwest, middle, south middle, etc...

For clearing up all the confusion, you are welcome. :D

Sorry guys, but it's all EAST, pretty much anything east of the rockies is EAST. Thanks for your concern though. And you're welcome, again. ;)

Just in case there is still any confusion, I broke it down for you. Half and Half. I hope this clears this all up.

Just playin wit yall. But c'mon, that's what kills me about it all, I know that back in the early days it was the way it was. But come on logically how can you call anything west of the appalacians west. :confused:

Time to give up the old ways and use common sense. :D

HAHAHAHAHA, have fun. ;)

I thought we settled this 5 days ago. :rolleyes:

This is a link that shows the 100th meridian, and wouldn't ya know it, almost right where I drew that line. :D

Quote from site:

The 100th meridian (the north-south boundary between the Texas panhandle and Oklahoma) is often used as a general dividing line between the humid eastern United States and the arid western United States. Of course, this is a very broad generalization.
