    anyone know what size thread these things are? specifically here:

    ToyoDIY.com
    87205 JOINT OR UNION, FRONT HEATER HOSE THROUGH OR INLET VALVE
    87251‑30190 BJ4*, FJ4*

    Easy replacement in town somewhere? Toyota is slowwww

    It could be a standard pipe thread. A lot of the pipe/hose connections are.

    If you have the old one you can take it to the Home Despot and try to find a match.

    I'm worried it might be BSPT instead of NPT (which is the situation with the oil pressure sender - NPT works but I wouldn't wanna use that on such a large fitting in the head). Home Depot doesn't have BSPT so I don't even know how to measure and see what it is...

    It is BSPT. Toyota never used NPT on a LandCruiser. You can buy these at McMaster-Carr

    Thanks, but I'll be ok. If there was a sub at the auto parts store or hardware store I'd hit it, but I'll be a big boy and just wait for Toyota to get em on Monday.
