    Steering box HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T

    Thanks buddy. I was editing my last when you wrote - to note that mine DOESN'T seem to have PPS, and the donor unit DOES have PPS - unlike how I wrote it the first time. Encouraging news from you - thank you for that. Sure we'll find out how it all goes together as we get along with the job...

    Steering box HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T

    Right - really in the weeds now. Here are some pictures I was sent of the two steering boxes. The clean one is the damaged article from my vehicle. The dirty one is a possible transplant from a dead HDJ81. They appear to be very similar, though the HDJ81 item has some kind of electrical...

    Steering box HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T

    Thanks, gentlemen. Good to know. Problem will be getting it from UK to Zimbabwe, given that I can't just jump on a plane and go home these days. We have a good steering box from a knackered HDJ81, but I don't know if that will fit yet. Or if the shaft can be switched from one to the other...

    Steering box HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T

    Yaaaaaa... I feared so. Somehow didn't look at all right. But - good news perhaps - is it possible to get just the shaft? Without having to buy the whole steering box assembly? I presume one needs a packet of seals and so on, but that a good fundi could take it apart and put it back again? I was...

    Looks like there's also a hairline crack here:

    Steering box HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T

    Afternoon, all, I've been away awhile. Lots of other stuff going on. But back now with a big issue with my 1996, Sahara-spec, HDJ80R-GNMEX/1 HD-T in Zimbabwe. My lad bounced the front wheel of a rock at some speed over Christmas. He had to change a load of parts from the wheel back through the...

    Issues with the gearbox in 1HZJ 105.

    Jambo, Patrick, from down the road in Nairobi. I can't help with the why, but I can tell you that mine (1999 105 HZ manual) does exactly the same. My fundi changed the gearbox oil recently to precisely the grade Toyota specify, and that's made it a lot better, but it still slips out from time to...

    battery charging with two batteries...

    Ok - I'm not in Nairobi (or Harare) at the moment, but I am confident of the following: 1: Both my 80 series and my 105 are 12 volt NOT 24 volt. Both originally only had one battery when I bought them. 2: Both have two 75Ah (I think) batteries installed - and fitted by competent mechanics. 3...

    battery charging with two batteries...

    As a matter of interest - what damage would you expect this to have done? It doesn't, as yet, appear to have done any damage, which is interesting and slightly surprising.

    battery charging with two batteries...

    Um, yes. So it does. Interesting. This is exactly how my 12v 80 series has been wired, for 150,000 kms and over 8 years. So when I got the 105, I just did the same thing. Of course it's still 12v electrics all the way through. I'm away from Kenya at the moment. Looks like I better get the...

    battery charging with two batteries...

    I've been away for work for a while, and Pam (my 1998 105 Standard spec LC) was a bit sluggish to start when I got home. So I've connected my Optimate 3+ conditioner/charger which I will leave connected for 24 hours or so (I don't have a fast charger). I have two 70Ah batteries, in series...
