    I changed the fluid in my power steering pump as it was dirty, and it now needs to be bled. My Chilton manual (don't tell me it's crap - I know) says that some Land Cruisers have RWALB (rear wheel anti-lock brakes) and that if mine does then bleeding should not be done except with a specialised machine that bleeds the rear brakes at the same time.

    Does my 97 have RWALB and if so, what should I do?

    Your cruiser has rear wheel anti lock braking system. There is no tie in between the power steering and braking system on your cruiser.

    Odd, I don't get the requirement or connection with rear wheel Anti Lock Braking.

    The PS pump/system bleeding I've done (on two different Toyota models following pump replacement) involves rotating the steering wheel from stop to stop. There is another method involving disconnected hoses, container of new fluid, container for discharge, etc., but I've never needed to do that.

    On a '93 Bronco, the instructions were similar, except in that case, fluid bubbled up out of the uncapped reservoir making an oily mess...
