I still haven’t met the first person (in the US) that thinks cloth seats/base status in Land Cruisers are a severe detriment.As a RHD HDJ81 owner in Canada I think you are making a mistake. RHD gassers are cheaper then LHD gassers but you want to pay more? Mileage is very questionable. If you are patient you can easily buy a RHD HDJ81 with 1HD-T for the same money. If you buy the RHD gasser that is only a base cloth model you will not be able to sell it, more like give it away.
My one cent.
The appearance of the interior is what drew me to this one. The cleanest I found.Looks quite clean
Its got aftermarket springs, shocks, steering damper, sway bar bushes fitted
Is been converted to dual fuel. LPG/Propane gas and petrol
The subtank has been removed at the rear to accommodate LPG tank.
LPG system is the two big round alloy components in the engine bay, plus flashlube valve lubrication system (installed because LPG converted engines had a tendency to wear valve guides prematurely)
Personally, I'm not a fan of the LPG conversions
Looks like its had a good clean up underneath. Has had some engine oil leaks in the past.
Yes. They use an evaporator ( to the right of the engine) then vapour is injected into the intake through the big doughnut thing in the intake.What's the big round thing on the air intake tube before the manifold?
edit: looks like part of the propane system?
In my experience, like you've said it's one or the other. Quite a few years ago I had a GQ SWB with a turbo TB42 in it, ended up with a gas research dedicated LPG system and ice ignition. It was a nightmare on the first start of the day and ran like garbage until she had enough heat in the coolant to vaporise the LPG properly presumably. Once it was warm tho, oooh yeah!Yes. They use an evaporator ( to the right of the engine) then vapour is injected into the intake through the big doughnut thing in the intake.
Lots of extra hoses and plumbing. They are problematic for tuning. They either run great on LPG or great on petrol. Not both. They can have problems starting.
Gas tanks have to be pressure tested and the whole system recertified every ten years in Australia.
I would not touch lpg with a 40ft pole. Not a fan
