hey all, i'm intersted in a 81 bj42 for sale in vancouver and need to get it checked out before purchase. i'm a subaru tech in victoria and could tell most faults through a drive and thorough inspection but will need help with a compression check. my experience with diesels has been that this is the most important check. anyone with a compression tester want to check one out with me next saturday? will trade beer of choice for help :cheers: if not can you steer me in the right direction for a good shop in vancouver that can check compression
regards,
chris

Rob Millson of LCI in Richmond will be your closest choice for a Cruiserhead/Mechanic. Big shop, couple of hoists, and a few tools laying around.

thanks for the reply greg, will take it to him for a compression check. besides compression, harsh shifting and frame rot are there any "major" concerns to watch out for?
i haven't heard back from the seller yet, anyone know of another bj landcruiser for sale in the lower mainland/vancouver island?
