My 70 started to struggle firing up over the last few weeks.......so I changed the glow plugs over. Problem solved? ....NO!
As the starting problem got worse, I got more embarrassed , looking like a right old twerp to onlookers as I cranked the engine over...and over ...and over till it stared in a puff of smoke!
Got really fed up of it, so I decided to examine the fuel system (as covered several times before), as it seemed that she was syphoning diesel back to the tank. I looked at every section of pipe...but no leaks. Vlew air back from the filter towards the tank and I eventually found a wet damp section of rubber hose near to the top of the fuel tank!! Great...or so I thought!
Armed with a new piece of rubber fuel line, two shiny new clips and a sharp knife, I set about removing the offending section of rubber (just over the rear axle)........
As I cut the rubber, the section of metal piping from the fuel pick-up pipe fell off
Managed to get the tank off with a few new welsh swear words under my belt
Need to order a new fuel pick-up pipe. Any ideas? Toyota part?
