    BJ42 ride horrible!!!

    G.day folks Well my 'new' addition to the fleet has arrived - the BJ42 3B 5-speed from Australia (pics below). Cute or what?, seriously lovely looking, including inside. Bit of rust here and there on body but that's it; underneath is amazing only the winch has a bit of surface rust, otherwise...

    FJ45 pickup - project 'Elvis'

    Hi All Thought you might be interested in my 2nd project - this rather tired old FJ45 pickup, which I intend to restore and convert to a 2H. I've put a little piece on FB about it, and will update accordingly https://www.facebook.com/LandCruiser-HJ47-crew-cab-137492866421490/ Plus some...

    Snorket problems...

    Hi All I can't seem to figure out exactly how the under-bonnet connections should be for the Safari snorkel I've fitted. At the moment the pipe that should connect the snorkel to the filter inlet doesnt fit in the gap (see pic) and I cant see how it can?! The snorkel itself is fitted exactly...

    HJ47 suspension lift?

    Hello Folks May I pick your brains again please? My 47 dual cab has 31" wheels, which I think ought to be 33s, as the 31s look a bit 'lost' on it! However, I know this would need a bit more space above the wheels for plenty of suspension room so I looked into a proper 2.5" lift. I may have to...

    Tilt test

    Hello All Out of slightly more than morbid curiosity, I wanted to get my 47 crew cab on a tilt test platform to see how far, fully loaded, it could go before rolling. However, I've just gotten the proposed cost of this back and, if you are curious to know, the fee for this would be £2,210! I...

    Hi & Gearbox query?!

    Hello Folks I am thinking of buying a 'spare' gearbox for my HJ47, and from what I've read all 4-speed 40 series share same gearbox. Is that correct? Some are strangely cheap on eBay! Thanks in advance Cliffy

    2H injection timing anomaly

    Hello Folks May I take the liberty of picking your brains (yet again!)? I recently had my 2H engine rebuilt by a Toyota mechanic who's familiar with 40s. However, a problem has arisen in that whilst all the timing gears are perfectly aligned (exactly to 2H specs) the fuel pump timing cannot...

    40 series round trip - Cumbria

    Hi All Having just completed a 1,500 klm (in three days) trip to Cumbria and back to SE UK I thought I'd post/link to a couple of pics/clips. We averaged 8.9 klm per litre at typical 100klm/hr, not bad for this heavy duty truck. Not much to see as we forgot to charge the main camera! Anyway...

    Normal 2h engine sounds??

    Hi All I'm seeking some opinions on 2H engine sounds, perhaps you can assist?! My HJ47 2h has reportedly only done 60,000 miles from new and been serviced pretty well. Perhaps, perhaps! My mechanic, who did his apprenticeship on LC 40s tells me mine sounds normal, and that the clatter is...

    I'm new, truck definitely not new!

    Greetings All! In line with forum guidance I'm saying a quick 'hi' to you, especially as this forum comes highly recommended by a chap named Chris who I just met in my local Sainsbury's car park UK while he was admiring my LC HJ47 Crew Cab. Turns out he knows quite a few people in the 40s field...
