    Severe rust patch - 105 Series

    No metal in the module at all apart from the probe that sits at the back of the unit. My guess is that the probe gets warm or condensates on long trips from the constant connection to the cooling system. I will contact that manufacturer today. I will also check any potential leaks in the...

    Severe rust patch - 105 Series

    Hey guys looking for thoughts on this. Ive discovered this tonight on my 2006 105 series wagon. This is a metal bar located under the steering wheel, the rust patch is completely isolated to and around this low water alarm module. I have cut the zip tie on the module since then to expose more...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    Hey guys. So ended buying a hzj105. What a mission to find a good vehicle! Has all the bells and whistles... is non turbo but runs like a dream. I drove several other 1hz 105's and none drive like this one. I do have a question though. Ive found a nasty (proper nasty) patch of rust on a bit...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    Awesome replies guys, thanks! Big thanks Clive for all those photo's... you've gone to some effort there plus some numbers to think about... cheers. All our RHD vehicles here have the barn doors open the same way. Your right about instant access... they just seem more friendly IMHO. I certainly...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    Surprising you guys would consider the bigger door! I guess it depends on your trailer setup, too (should have stated that earlier!). My issue wouldnt be the jockey wheel but more or less the winch post and winch handle on the trailer... for my outboard motor height whilst in transit I've moved...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    I have a question for you all today... Again looking at the 80 Series - I regularly tow a boat around wherever I go and the 'barn' style doors on the HZJ's appeal to me a hell of a lot more then the big door on the HDJ's in terms of getting gear out of the back etc. If I go down the line of a...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    Thanks Clive for that detailed reply! Cool stuff! Thanks for noting the big end bearing with the 1-HDT. I am having trouble finding what issues these engines have, it's just the few things I've heard from others. It could just be a case of the 1HZ being just so reliable that anything else is...

    Buying a Cruiser Wagon - help a brother out!

    Hey all... hope to be an active member of this forum from here on in. I've been a Hilux & Cruiser driver with my field of work for the past 8 or so years, yet have owned a 3L Navara which I'm no longer needing (too small for the family) so I have been busy researching and looking up Cruiser...
