Thanks for your comments and video! Good to hear feedback from others who own the 1PZ R151 combo. Like I say, I think it is a solid power train in a SWB.Mines a 1990 LX.... It has the KO85 rear lsd 4.11 diff., central locking , air con and power windows.....I bought it as a dd at 113,000 and its just hit 350,000 , half of that towing about a ton......Great little truck , reliable as hell.
electric front hubs are crap , replaced with manual , dual mass fly wheel are crap , replaced with solid at 125,000....A set or headers realy freed up the revs and make the 1pz like a petrol too drive
When i bought it it would do 140kmph and used 1ltr of oil every 10,000......Nothing has changed , if anything it goes even better with the headers......Had the gear box rebuilt at 200,000 but i think 2 dual mass fly wheels falling too bits may have given it a shake up....The R151 isnt the strongest LC box , but in a shorty thats not getting abused they should be as strong as any of the competition.
What flywheel did you use? I saw Exedy makes an upgrade. My thoughts are Toyota used the dual mass flywheel for a good reason, likely to keep vibrations down and keep it smooth. On many levels it is hard for me to disagree with Toyota engineers. I am curious to see what this one looks like when I pull the trans to do the clutch.
