    Adding Second Battery

    I have a fast Idle button next to the diff lock switch, I often use it when winching for long periods and thats enough for the alternator to keep up with charging. Steve

    Viscous Fan - I think mine is always "on"?

    Never grab the fan even if it is not working, my mate lost the top of his little finger when he accidently toched mine........ The fan works by moving fluid arround in chambers inside the fans clutch increasing the drag as the temprture rises thus making the fan run faster. The viscous fan is...

    Toyota Landcruiser ZX Landcruiser Automatic Station Wagon

    Re: Toyota Landcruiser ZX Landcruiser Automatic Station Wago Hi Richard and welcome, I hope that I am not teaching you how to suck eggs here but the oil level should be checked with the engine running and the oil up to temperature. From 'Park' go slowly through all the gears and back up to...

    BFG KM2 - rotation and wear.

    I take mine to my freindly Mr T in Yeovil to be done, he does groan when he sees my truck booked in for tracking. As you, I have a 40mm lift and this does push the limits a bit but he has managed to set mine up absolutely spot on. It makes a huge difference when set up properlly the drive is...

    OT - Can you please identify this type of wood?

    My brother in- law got his charts out and we recon that it is most likely Sapele (Mahogany) Entandrophragma-cylinricum. This wood would give you the colour variations as seen in your floor and if you are looking at doing some restoration to the floor then this is the wood to go for. If it was...

    Getting the best from your hand brake

    Well then guys, I am still working on this but today I think that I am getting closer. One of the big problems that I have found is that when the hand brake is applied you use all the cable. Which is why I am using these photos from steve as you can clearly see this. Today I fitted some shims...

    4.5 D-4d twin turbo - oil use?

    I thought that it was common knowledge that the D4D had issues with injectors etc. There has been a problem with all of them from the Rav4 up. I know that on the smaller D4D's there has been a re-call fro injectors and I know that Local Toyota dealer has even done complete engine changes under...

    Transmogrification of a 90

    A bit after the event this, but if you are interested Tony the guys at where I got my Exhaust from (Long Life of Amesbury) make bespoke air cleaner and filter systems. They mainly do them for racing cars but I am talking them into doing something for me that will make the Safari snorkel and Mr...

    Lincomb, May 2012

    here in Dorset at the moment it is windy and raining constantly. For me personally I would not mind a restricted weekend as the people and atmosphere are what make it. And may be we could do some extreme recovery and assistance in the woods that are accessible. I would be prepared to do this for...

    Fuse ratings 101

    Olazz, Just a quick thought have the lights been wired up in series instead of parralel, the easiest way to find out is if you were to remove the bulb from one light does the other one go out. If it does then it has been wired up in series and this could be the problem and give you the reading...

    Boot Box in my 95

    You are not wrong there the hardest bit was continually earning enough Brownie points with Mrs N to get out to the workshop and, as she saw it, sit down and do nothing :roll: They just don't understand the engineering process, a lot of thinking has to take place before, during and after...

    Boot Box in my 95

    It was just the shortest route. I have run a 200 amp cable from the battery side of my winch electronic isolation switch which is on the right hand side of the bulkhead under the bonnet. As the easiest grommets to get to are just underneath that switch to allow access to the cabin it made sense...

    Boot Box in my 95

    Well it has been a long time in coming but at long last I have finished the latest boot boxes for my truck. The metal (12mm box steel) from metal 4 u, which I have to say gave me a fantastic service even down to the delivery driver who carried the order around the block as he couldn't get his...

    MOT how to pass

    Gents, Today I took the old girl for her MOT and I am pleased to say that she past with no problems. So why tell you that. Well here is the thing, couple of weeks ago the Brake compensator valve spring had snapped. Toyota do not sell the spring as a individual item and I was not going to pay...

    Improving brakes in general and braided hoses

    By bridging out certain terminals in the diagnostics plug under the bonnet and driving a certain speed over a certain distance the ECU will look at the system and via flash codes using the ABS light let you know what it finds. In my case it noticed a low voltage return from my O/S/F...

    Improving brakes in general and braided hoses

    Reference your ABS light, That means that the ECU has seen a problem and that it has put it self into a safe mode ie turning the ABS off. When you had your ABS activity was it below about 5mph just as you are comming to a stand? I had a simmaller thing happen on mine but only when on full lock...

    Stock Speakers

    No, All you have are the 4 door speakers which as you say make a really good noise. I will just say that when you buy your wooffer that you get it on a trial basis as I found that the stock speakers are very good and the addition of a wooffer was.....well not worth it and the space was used for...

    Pay & Play Day run by the Army at Tidworth, December.

    The worst thing about the 'Plain' is the flint....if you are not careful it can be a tyre muncher, make sure you have your spare with you I will be as bold as to say that with this many of us on the plain I would expect to see two or three of us with punctures. Steve

    I am sorry to say Garry that it was one of us that was responsable, he/they were seen by a few of us and I really do hope that he/they PM Tony with his/their apologies. It would be a shame if we lose this fantastic event because of the actions of one individual. Steve

    Over heating

    Yep that is the depth that I filled too but I used 10000 cst which is a bit thicker so that may be the reason. I did a lot of reserch and it was a toss up between 7000cst or 10000 cst and it was just the 10000 figure was used more than the 7000 so I plumped for 10000cst. Yes mine is AT and as...

    Thats the thing.... it had been such a long time.....but it was not until I fixed my fan and started getting the woosh noise every time that I started up that I remembered that I was getting the woosh before the over heating problem started and that I was not getting it when I was over heating...

    Over heating

    Well I found some oil so today I overhauled the viscous fan. So I thought that I would share my day with you. Firstly I removed the fan from the car and took it to the workshop. Removing the outer bolts was easy enough but they are cross head so make sure the correct size cross head driver is...
