Hi I have to admit that I also have a 5-speed diesel in the Netherlands.
Previous owner gave me this picture were they were moving the Eiffel tower a few metres as requested by the préfet and 20 arrondissements of Paris (Fluctuat nec Mergitur you know :grinpimp:)







From 13-08-2011 I have been working on it and I learned driving in landcruisers/4x4 in Africa @ age 16.

I registered at I hate mud because every search for info directed me to this site:
* I don't really like the scroll-adds, the forced membership and forced login to see full screen pictures *

>At this point your web-browser is not kaputt or frozen: I added to many pictures, stupidly<
Page 2 and 3 are crashing phones and tablets: wait for picture loading, from page 4 I will use less pictures.

I also get more info from these websites:

Much info here, the first site a Toyota owner learns about but the fiches are now hidden:
ToyoDIY.com

and here:
Запчасти для автомобилей Toyota| Купить запчасти для японской автомобилей и мототехники по оптимальным ценам в интернет-магазине «Мегазип» 03

Small parts I buy from the dealer, if a part is hard to find email a dealer, find one that still likes the old stuff.
My dealer really helps me and gets the dealer software to relist none available parts, then orders and gets it closed again (very funny)

I always asked my father to drive trough mud and he always refused. I understand now that getting stuck alone in the rain-period in Bangladesh, Tanzania or Peru is not the same as getting stuck for fun with plenty of help around.



My father has never liked or enjoyed being stuck; It gave him the creeps just as he hates snakes so I was kind of teaching him the possibilities of the 4x4 cars. For snakes he used a few gallons of diesel and an bonfire :idea:
The drivers he had also were quite skilled so they made their way trough the deserts and monsoon season.



Sometimes our house had a few landcruisers (hj/fj60, fj55) and landrovers (county 110) parked, but we used our Nissan sunny / Daihatsu rocky to drive to school (how honest, too honest but if corruption is all around and about to swallow you you better give a good example)
The Toyota's are for work my father said, and so I decided to go with him to the inland's for water and soil projects.
the "other" 4x4 :)

When we got stuck in a big traffic jam because a truck broke its axle I convinced my father to drive around it in 4x4 low. The crowd was cheering as the rocky made it around ploughing through mud destroying bushes and we made a new African road! My brother and I had so much fun and my father had some more belief in our trial skills ;) next all the others started following us and we made a convoi!

The same happened in Peru driving trough rivers and beaches; we got used to 4x4low life :D

this is were I grew up:
netherlands: Google Maps
peru: Google Maps
Bangaldesh: Google Maps
Tanzania: Google Maps
And I met my (dutch) wife in Kenya: Google Maps

nice internet map, funny, nostalgia.

The hj60 model I bought was ok for the money as they are expensive overhere and it had a whole book full of bills/labour with it. Rust is bad but technically it has never died on me and after 20000 km in a year it still gets better every month :wrench::wrench:
I wil be using this place to describe my fun and tears, and ask for help if needed.

And this is why I need a towing vehicle:


The Subaru Forester is also very good for mud, but better for snow and save with the family:
Atol 550 with 140 Hp Johnson Bombardier. prop=24 pitch

-18 celcius and I had to glow two times, replaced 6 glowplugs and now it starts immediatly:
I got stuck in -18 and that was cold :santa: had gloves but they froze to the bumper, used the jack but that is iron too... spend three hours in a forrest getting dark.:whoops:


I have rented 4x4 cars in Peru (toyota hi-lux), in Chile (hyundai galloper), Egypth (nissan pathfinder), Kreta (suzuki vitara), Turkey (suzuki samurai), kos (suzuki vitara), Tunesia (desert run in renault clio...)

Hoi Niels, If I had paid another person for every hour I would be broke :D maybe later I need help for driveshaft alignment, birfields and driveshaft bearing replacement :steer:

OK, so this night is over, some more grinding tomorrow and then the cover up operation starts: paint, filler, tectyl and noise damping foil wil cover up our welding work, see it again in a few years I suppose... :ban:

My wish is to keep the car untill my kids can drive it (legally), 11 years to go so this might be impossible :wrench:

Looks like you had some fun! I must say I am jealous, IH8MUD but man is it fun! :lol:

That sure is a nice truck you have! And it sounds like you have a solid plan for it. Keep on posting here on Mud, I'll be watching! :hillbilly:
 
It's possible!
I had a shop specialised in that british 4x4 a ten years ago, some of my resto work of that time are still running around in my naburhood.
For the most customers i do the hard parts like wheelwells and roof, sometimes i do the whole body.
With a bit of preparation it can last another 25 years.
 
Maybe I'm missing something here, or not understanding a joke, but how did the Dutch come into possession of a large amount of 5 speed diesels? I see one so far.

No offence intended, I'm just not getting it. :) The title of the thread VS the content of the thread.

My LC was build in may 1985 and put on license in France in august 1985. I bought it with 229000 km and the odo seems to match the parts needed, and there was a lot spent by previous owners.
Now it is almost on 250.000 km, yes I drive to much :wrench:
But the car never let me down >knock on rust<

Hi Mike, yes strange that Japan thought the USA could do without diesels around 1980 :meh: maybe some political crap behind it.

And Rolladude we got stuck downhill :flipoff2: yeah!
Man I was glad I brought (and bought) a 4 ton winch! It only does 150 cm a time but then really you start to understand that every inch away from the mud is better than none :cheers:

I also had a high lift with me, but we managed to escape to the left side back uphill making a nice u-turn before the cooperative tree.

Sporty I welded a bit last year and while making the new fixes I had to grind an old bit and it looked new and shiny so maybe I will make it to the year 2023! :deadhorse:

Dartvincor I was joking cause some mudders hate the fact that the USA has no diesels and h55 5speed. And the last place you need one is the flat Netherlands, so why we got them is a miracle!

Enoug bla, PICS! my two doughters like the car and the second couch even better:

file.php


My kids are not around while grinding or welding but here we have a break and my son wants to check if we do it right.
file.php


Now back to the cruiser: maybe some tiny more welding to stop the addiction, grinding and before end of day the heavy tools must be back in the shed.

some pics;
the minute I was at the postoffice paying and getting the paper work.
You should have stopped me! :bounce:
file.php



My HJ60 has no name, it is a car and my boats name is "unknown" because the mariphone needs a boat name...


Yes another trade for proper maintenance: Diaphragm Governor oil to lubricate the fuel pump Diaphragm that is made of leather;

Diaphragm Governor Part Number: 22303-47010
Oil= ND 995500-0140 or Bosch OL-36V1
quote from the web:
It's natural leather, you MUST NOT use any form of petro oil, petroleum or synthetic. Use "neat's foot oil", available at leather/hobby stores. The manitenance manual says to put a few drops once a year into the governor housing into a hole exposed by removing a machine screw with a slotted head, I think it's a 10 mm hex head and 6 mm threads, on top.
I got enough oil to cover 48000000 kilometers :grinpimp:
file.php


The oil is drained:
file.php


fill a few drops of neatsfoot oil, if it is to much it can be drained later.
Remove the #10 bolt on the top:

Well Darthvincor

The roadtax in the Netherlands is extreme, a 2ton diesel 4x4 costs over 1000 euro every 3 months.
A car over 25 years is taxfree, so that's wy the dutch import landcruisers from all over europe.
And now the goverment is raising the age to 30 years because to much oldtimers are imported!!
 
I got the road license :beer: so the hj will be Punishing the roads!
No major problems so I have to thank my brother for helping me out!
We went to some shops to get parts and it was good fun to go with the motorcycles as it was good wheater overhere :cool:

Thanks bro :clap:
file.php


Air pollution is max 2,5 and it tested 1.3 without any tricks to get it lower. Last year it was 1.0 with new exhaust.

Now what is the problem for next year:
Replace the front hard brake lines, well we did the rear last year so no problem at all;
I use needle caps on all the brake/clutch bleeders and grease fittings / zerc. No I dont do heroin, my niece has MS.

file.php


I did an oil change and have 3 filters left, next I will skip one filter and change the oil, no more 15-w40 for me as I buy 60 liter 10-40 drums.
Yeah, no big chunks of debri, this engine lookes healthy :wrench:
file.php


So the sun is shining and I needed that cause sometimes time seemed to trick me.
file.php

Get the goodies out, I want to go to Spain were Madmax 3 was recorded, but it has some plutonium pollution form a crash:
1966 Palomares B-52 crash; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1966_Palomares_B-52_crash
I cant wait for the half-life of 24,100 years
file.php



So now here is my welding, please do not wreck cruisers because they have rust, rust is beautifull, rust is peace, rust is glamour, rust makes your day, rust is so nice to look at and hear it crackle away night and day.
Ok sorry for that :banana:
file.php


Replaced C-channels a year ago, with the swaybar connections;
file.php

cleaned cargo bay,

file.php


file.php


yeah, nasty sticky stuff: water tight and a cover of tectyl. This will smell great with the next welding exploration.

file.php


file.php


floor damping, sticky stuff, whack it on and dont think to much;
file.php


Never leave before posting a rust picture huh? :beer:
file.php


If you think this got me crying?, no this did:
Renewing exhaust on Opel Corsa, some einstein welded the parts together so I had to wackn'smack'grind again :confused:

And the sun shines on another great 60! Glad to see that she passed the emissions testing, and apparently with flying colors too! :wrench:

You're doing some good work, keep it up! :hillbilly:
 
Thanks Rolladude, nice front picture of your 60, cool!
So here I go again: next simple thing was a new trailer hatch.
Simple never seems te be near my cruiser and I saw simple and cheap run away one time loughing at me :flipoff2:

So finding the hook was a problem, ordering one even more. Luckily it is 2012 so paying with paypall is easy.
Easy and quick left my town, forgot about that :bang:

So after 5 weeks paypall paid, shop delivered and I fixed it.
The new hook is found on oldtimers all over Europe: The main dealer is in the Netherlands 110 km away from me...

Thule; part number is # 182700 for a LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER I AE AN HAA HAB HAM HBM RE RN 3 5 model :mad:


I need it tomorrow to tow a mini crane!
Old one was rejected at the road license check (48 mm/new=50 mm)

This thing can carry 3500 Kg, and a vertical pressure of 150 Kg (the plate states 200 Kg vertical)
They sell other hatches to 180 kg, this one weights 15 kg.

The bolts need 95 mm for the hatch and the iron bar, also add thread for the nuts and rings!
So 12 cm bolts is ok, does not come in the Thule package! Got them from a tractor dealer. 850 kg each!
Yes I keep the 3500 Kg legacy alive!

file.php

Here is the size, not to be found on the internet
icon_mrgreen.gif

83 mm wide from centre holes X 55 high X 100 diagonal

182780 is only the bag of bolt and nuts.
file.php


The complete set, I only need the hitch and not the metal crap.
file.php



My old man asked me a few weeks ago if I could use a towball cap: YES! cool :wrench:
I am proud, If I keep on doing this for about 20 years I might one day be rust free, might...
Ok, I see I forgot to grease the ball :grinpimp: :eek: :popcorn:

file.php



Last week we returned from Denmark with the trailer, I managed to park in a remote forrest in germany to sleep.
Why,
icon_exclaim.gif


file.php

So I almost drove 300 km to get the cruiser,but the :princess: told me to stop making problems, just drive away she said...
For about 15 hours I wondered why I parked downhill
icon_e_confused.gif

In Mud :p
file.php


So I put some wood under the trailer to make sure it would not sink away at night.
Idled the Subaru for a few minutes to get warm,
And drove uphill, no problem, no spinning wheels, nada

New tires may have saved me there.

My HJ60 last year at the road check, scary as it did not have it before in the Netherlands and you never know what they will come up with.
But it had all the paperwork, maintenance and previous France road license checklist with it.
Only had to replace one rear brakeline, but did the C-channels and other stuff that makes you live under the landcruiser for a few weeks (ok maybe I am slow but I work and have kids and :princess:)
file.php


So here are some pictures of my suspension rear shock tube, welded, rusted :doh:

right side:
file.php


left side:

file.php


just a hj in a forest:
file.php


file.php


And this is the outside, the inside is ok now=waterproof.
I need advice how to treat that nasty scratch, I should have not drove inta a forest.
So my HJ is not a pimped lipstick nailpolished Landcruiser, no, but it goes.
file.php



I am happy that the landcruiser is waterproof, I can drive tru rain and no more water inside!
The sound of water agains the wheel arch is not like the niagara falls anymore, good:smokin:
Below picture is the start of the winter season overhere;
file.php


I just saw that the kids opened both right side windows
So again the carpet is wet, water/rust I cant take it anymore :skull: .......

looks like some of the work I need to do. I yet to install my rear shock tube after it broke off last year but right now, I need to replace inner wall of my frame its time to be cut out, and welded in new one.
 
Hi Gerben, thanks. Did you resolve the knuckles? Moved from rain to sun :cool:
Rustybucket as I understand it you want to replace the c-channel?
This;


But these things are really hard to remove and even rusted they look like cardboard but you slam and hammer away and they dond budge at all.
I needed almost 45 minutes per rivet to grind and smash it out!

http://youtu.be/XZTvssDAIEs?t=24s

I had to weld IN (not on!) 4 mm steel, puzzle fit it and hammer a slight bend, funfunfufunfun, not. but Bas did it for me, thanks Bas :clap:


If you want a cheap new part for your landcruiser buy a diff drain plug :D





So last year my :princess: planned a house for a holiday, I could not resist to keep working :whoops: the kids slept in the car :D

2x replacement c-channels
2x under protection plate
1x spare wheel replacement
2x replacement sway bar connections (these really rotted out)
1x fuel hose protection
2x suspension bracket
1x exhaust bracket



My fuel tank: Europe has no recall on fueltanks so let us all explode in peace.
The long fuel breather line that moves in a U-turn and then from right to left to right to vent under a frame mount under the rear seat can be replaced by rubber hose.
It is so long so we can sefely roll our vehicles:clap:It is unnumbered #6 removed from the tube between line #2 and #3

The diesel connections, the fuelpump gives 5 times more diesel then needed to cool the pump!



EVAP rusted line, replaced with rubber hose:
file.php


I bought a tamiya landcruiser (RC Tamiya Toyota Land Cruiser 40 5844 CC01 chassis) and it has 4x4 without difflock so it is funny to test on sand and see it spinning away;
file.php


file.php


So much welding and I almost bought my fathers new red Fiat panda instead of the HJ60.

Here is the tank, grinded to make sure it has no leaks and orange lead paint and a layer of special something paint called X10: The whole thing is pretty far from environmentally friendly...
file.php

file.php


file.php


Here you see another Landcruiser joke that is good to know:
Brakeline bleding only works with the 5th bleeder!!!
And the manual does not start with the longest line but left front first (search that)

The fuel tank is missing, the straps bolts are the famous strange size so dont damage them!
You can see the access cover and the straps fit very snug so to reinstall make sure you put the bolts straight in or they will not catch on the welded nut and just keep turning.
file.php



Here is a common problem that most rusted landcruisers will encounter one day:
Fuel rises to maximum and temp goes al little later.
Somehow temp maxed out causes some kind of unhealty situation :steer::censor:
file.php


Fueltank connection accesible from the cover located in the rear area behind the couch.
But this is not why the gouge goes to maxumum!
file.php

The cluster has to be taken out; steeringwheel in lowest position and remove the screws, easy.

file.php

Now here is the fix to the maximum rising of fuel and temp:
file.php


Another failing diesel thing is the primer pump, you need it to remove air from the lines if you drive the tank empty.
Or after removing the injectors.

When my dieselprimer pump was leaking (twist the Toyota one and press it in: results in diesel everywere)
I used BOSCH Hand Primer Pump Diesel Fuel Feed Pump # 2447222126
Installed it , checked inline filter (nothing there) and works very fine. Check the diesel section on IH8mud for this!
file.php



file.php


Replaced the belts, got the wrong belt so write the number first, then buy :censor:
1> Long belt for alternator, waterpump and fan= Car Part TOYOTA 9934311070 V-Belt
http://www.partsbase.net/part/toy-9934311070
2>short belt for steering pump =toyota= 90916-02101-b =tr22344 15a0870

three point to loosen:
file.php

belt over fan!
file.php

piully tensioner, note the thin side of the rings/washer and the marking point for adjusting the valves:
file.php


thick side:
file.php

Dont loose them cause the washers are special!, when replacing first check if the pulley spins freely!
file.php

The pully bearing is#NSK 524 6202DU2
outer diameter D : (mm) 35 mm
diameter d : (mm) 15 mm
thickness B : (mm) 11 mm

This is what I use to clean the frame out. A pressure washer with the tool to clean sewers, it pushes itself forward.
Start from the rear, and also from the holes that are in the chassis.
Most frames are full of sand and this thing will get it all out;

file.php


My fixed c-channels, what can I say after many hours: there is no point replacing them but it looks better.
The landcruiser in Japan could tow 5000 kilo, are you planning that?
Just hit it, grind the excessive rust and paint it over.
file.php



file.php


So here is some nasty annimal living below the wipers.
You can feed it trough the maintenance cover in the engine compartment:
file.php


All the incoming air passes trough so clean it up or sell the mushrooms:
file.php


Here is the air intake, the airblower gest its air from here and luckily is is protected by a sophisticated pollenfilter:
file.php


Another easy job: Powerstreering ATF oil:
Jack up the front, wheels just of the ground or place cardboard under frontwheels or park in gravel/sand.
You need 1.3 liters of ATF fluid, not brake fluid! (Dont shake the bottle so no air bubbles!)
Disconnect upper hose, bleed hose and reservoir in the plastic container and push small hose in the iron end at the filler.
Fill max. at filler-cap with fluid, dont start engine, rotate wheel left to right twice but return before end/max. out.
Fill again and continue until fresh oil comes out at container side (1 liter)
Fill up to top/cap, close/reconnect and test drive, check level again; it lowered.
Remove excessive oil with empty squeeze handbottle found at carwash:

I have bought 7 splitrims! four are the same model and 3 other models but two of these have more mm.
file.php


So I had to start splitting them to learn and make a nice set of 4.
I drives nicely and muds fine so I will take them apart, paint them black and try to get 2 new tires to get a proper set with one proper spare.(1 mm is police minimum, 2 mm is roadcheck minimum)
file.php


I like the old skool look, the tires are just the same width as 205/80/16
file.php


Got 6 imperials to fit on the roof, 1.40 cm wide and the roof covers a lengt of 230 cm.

All this crap wil be a roofrack with clamps to hold the highlift, spare tank of diesel, etc.

This night I have been busy with the ElCheapo roofrack ;p
140 cm wide and 220 long covers the whole roof.

This has cost me les than 20 euro, the crates are 53 and one crate was given by friends who travel with me to France tomorrow!

This is our bunker tour plan on maps WARNING! thes sites are abandoned and dangerous so wear a helmet, supply for war, take some oxigen, notify others, dont die like others did entering these sites. There can be elevator shafts without doors or warning and more than 60 meters elevation; BEWARE. Asbestos/fumes/collapsing danger. Police will H8!
