Putting up the introductory post, as I’m helping my brother baseline his new 1996 LX450. It has 176k miles, is very clean/rust free, so it’s a matter of replacing fluids, cleaning the thing, making everything work, figuring what doesn’t, then remediating.

So far it has been a process of most fluids. He had a shop replace some brake line/hoses that had corrosion.

I have been using this forum because of its wealth of information. I’m pretty active with DIY, and appreciate what value forums like this bring. Now I can ask questions!

Congrats and welcome. Get your wallet ready.

In the almost five years I've been working on my 80, I don't think there has ever been a problem that wasn't already covered in detail here on mud.
Yeah this forum is great. I generally mess with old Mercedes diesels. This Land Cruiser isn’t mine, I’m just helping to work on it for fun.

It sure is leaky!
