    Autogearbox

    Agree :) We towed a caravan for about 50 miles without realising that handbrake for the caravan was on. It is stupid and we should have checked - there is no excuse for that.:cry: There is a autobox temp gauge installed as well as a large Hayden transmission cooler. Box was recently filled...

    Cash money while travelling abroad

    We use Amex Travellers cheques. I think you can get prepaid cards from fairfx euro and caxton. We tend to spread our travel cash a bit - some in travellers cheques, some in cash, and the rest on prepaid cards.

    Recommend road biased tyres please

    No response so far Andy ..my first preference if I have to go on the part worn route is BFG A/Ts - unfortunately they are hard to come by even in the part worn market.

    Aircon and smoke

    Sorry for asking a dumb question :icon-question: where do I adjust the tension for the aircon belt? Do I need a sst or any other tool to adjust it? I am thinking of removing the aircon belt temporarily - till I have a chance to take it to a aircon specialist. Thanks

    Aircon not working - so I bought a can of aircon refrigerant from Halfords to recharge the system. Followed the instructions had the aircon on max, started charging.

    Uninsured vehicle hot spots

    I.M.H.O proper police work costs money. Relying on CCTV / ANPR and perhaps Drones (in the future) to do police work is :eusa-naughty:

    Has the time come to part company with my 80....and are people buying them?

    Going by the number of "We buy all landcruisers" type of adverts on Fleabay and trader I guess there is a decent demand in the "ideal for export" market. When I enquire about a landcruiser that's up for sale I am asked " Are you looking to export it mate?":icon-biggrin:

    High Mileage 80 Series

    Agree with you Karl. Have done a few already:clap: . With fuel prices as they are, am trying to cut down the number of wasted journeys. What I don't understand is why some sellers who really don't want to sell [even if the buyer is prepared to pay the full asking price] or answer questions...

    Do you take number of previous owners into account when buying a used LC ?

    In your LC buying experience does the number of previous owners reflect on the maintenance / service history of the truck? Let's take a 1993 4.2td auto that has 8 previous owners (but reasonable history supported by invoices,bills etc) as an example.:icon-biggrin:. FWIW: If the car goes thru...

    Is this worth a look

    I have actually seen this car in the flesh only last week. Was tempted by the low miles and the fact that it was a manual. When I arrived to see it one of the tyres was down on air and the guy said it just needs inflating. When we tried to start it it wouldn't so they tried to jump start it. I...

    Hello from Lincoln

    Thanks for all your replies :) and please keep them coming. I've reconciled to the possibility that 12v manuals are few and far between. One of the ones that are available right now may have a "BIG" history - the kind of history I can do without atm. Hence, I've decided to be realistic and...

    1992 4.2td Manual - viewing story

    Hi all, Last week I went to see a 1992 LC 80 manual 12v. Checked the MOT history on the VoSa website - had two MOTs with no advisories. No service history, no invoices or record of any work being carried out. Is this normal? The truck was on a private plate and the salesperson said because it...
