    Hey Ben glad to see you making such a success of your move to Australia. I wanted to ask a huge favor. Here in SA we do not get recovery points for a 120 prado and i know you can get them in Aus. I was wondering if there may be one sitting in that pile above the winches in the shop and if your...

    Anyone traveling to SA

    I cant source a drivers window regulator in South Africa apart from the dealer. Is anyone traveling to South Africa that would mind popping just the motor in there bag for me any time soon? If not i will have to get it shipped form the UK but the cost is the same as the motor.

    80 series drivers electric window motor case

    Mine seems to have over heated on the brushes and melted the plastic so the brush dont not touch the copper ring anymore. I hope to be able to keep using the motor but need the black plastic top body part. Being in SA to ship a whole regulator over from rough trax etc makes it very expensive...

    Goodwinch Group buy

    I only fitted mine that we bought in the group buy this year in Feb. I have used it quite a bit for pulling out trees but no recovery yet. We went direct to David but he did a better deal as there was a group buy. Perhaps ask if he will do the same again. Mine has sat in the box for many years...

    Frankenstein 10PA 17C replaces seized 10PA 15L compressor.

    Thanks Frank all back together apart from the clutch as i cant seem to get the gap right. I cant get a feeler gauge in there so its a bit of trial and error. Will bolt it all up this weekend and head off to get it tested and hopefully refilled.

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    Ok so i am done with only 2 questions. What should i do with the wires that came off the 24v solinoid. one was plugged into the solinoid and assume it was the trigger wire so can i just tape it off and the other was on +1 but not sure what it feeds but think its the change over relay???

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    There are 2 small cables on the further battery from the alternator one was on the changeover relay and forms part of the same cable run as the change over relay trigger with plug at the end the other is a green wire with small black box on it that is already on the positive terminal of the...

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    OK thanks, do you know what draws current from those fusible links when not in use?
  17. warrenpfo

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    It just means running another cable across for those fusible links when there is a perfectly good cable running from the alternator to the starter battery already. Only trying to keep it tidy but not running yet another cable across.

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    Paul Can you advise what the drain is from, from those 4 wires? The large feed from the alternator is connected to the starter battery so it can charge it when running, i want to connect those 4 wires to that. My concern is that to start those 4 wires will pull a charge from the battery but...

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    Dave i want to go to the positive lug on the alternator not the battery on the alternator side. My concern is to start the car it will draw power from the battery through the cable that once started will supply charge to the battery at the other end. Hope that makes sense.

    12 volt starting conversion on a 1997 24 valve manual 80 series LandCruiser

    To bring this back to life i have just put in a 12v starter and done all the wiring apart from the 4 wires that terminate on the one crimp that used to be on the drivers side positive shown in the below photo I want to know if rather than running a wire from the now passenger side starter...

    You drive through the gate and 200m down you get to the community run campsite 10m from the beach behind a windbreak of vegetation. Its a small site with 6 two sleeper tents on a platform but the zips are buggered from the sea air and they are very basic so in my eyes not worth the extra cash...

    HDK CV's?

    I see Amaya Trading are now offering non oem parts as well and they have hdk cvs listed for a 105, have not looked for the 80 but may be worth a try at only £42 a cv for hdk for the 105 i cant see the 80 being much more and at that price its worth ordering a set just as a back up
