I am looking for a landcruiser,most likely it would be a mid to late 80's japan model bj74 or a hj61 turbo diesel,5spd,PTO,full floaters,diff locks,a/c,etc,etc.
My questions are for parts,can I get them at the dealer,other toyota's or am I stuck when I blow out a 24v alternator or glow plugs.
What are the specs of these models.
Anyone deal with Mustang Connection in Armstrong BC Canada.
Thanks
Kevin

You can get what you need, just need to look a bit longer. Most of what you need will be avail in CA as there are many BJ/HJ 60/70 series there. Maybe not a lot but there are enought hat you can find parts. Getting parts out of Australia is easy and shipping is not bad.

cool rigs, lots of em are coming into canada from Japan in MINT shape, do to the 15 year vrs 25 year import in the US, only problem is thry are all right hand drive :( If it were me I would get an auto trany, it can't be easy learing how to shift with your left hand. Gonna be REAL hard to reg in the US, so if you have a buddy in Canada thats gonna be the ticket, make him the legal owner and you just drive it......no clue if you can get it insured in the US if you do this. Might be some other ways to reg/title in the US......but it's gonna be dark gray.....if you care ;) I'm gonna have to get me one of them someday.
