    Road Angel Adventurer 7000 GPS

    For the shooters: wood pigeon decoys

    Not exactly cruiser related but in case there is any interest, I am clearing out some bits n bobs ahead of my return to Africa... I have some wood pigeon shell decoys with the little "stalks" that they stand on for sale. I'm guessing there are about 25-30. Condition ranges from almost new to a...

    Tare/GVM?

    Hello guys, Anyone able to share what their tare and GVM figures for their 80s are? I've been doing a bit of research and I see that the figures seem to vary a bit between models and markets and just random variations... Also the older and newer 80s have different values, I guess related to...

    Engine number location?

    Very quick question - anyone know where the engine number is stamped on the engine (on an 80 t/diesel)? I have to admit I haven't tried looking yet but thought I'd ask the question so that I'd know where to start looking ;) Cheers,

    eBay dispute - question to the experienced users

    I bought an item that was described as brand-new, unopened and unused on eBay. When it arrived, it clearly had been opened and was not brand-new, plus the power cord was missing. Various emails back and forth didn't resolve things - seller first insisted that the power cord had been included...

    What First Aid kit to get?

    I'd like to pick the brains of the 1st aiders in our club. I want to get a reasonable first aid kit to leave in my LC. I am not a trained 1st aider and I'm a bit squeamish around blood, especially my own! So I realise I have limitations, so full trauma sets, administering drips etc is not for...

    Tim Cameron back in Showtime

    Apologies that this is rather gratuitous but I can't help smiling when I see Tim Cameron in action. :mrgreen: I really would pay money to see him in action. How cool is his first pull-away and just jumping up the hill? Needless to say, he was the only guy to succeed on the climb :thumbup...

    Ratchet Straps - what to get?

    I'm going to put in an order to Damar for some ratchet straps and looking at their website, the options are endless loop, claw hook or delta ring end fittings and they will do them in lengths from 3-8m. I'm thinking of getting a selection but wondering what combinations to go for. My current...

    Appalling report on Toyota dealers

    This is shocking - but it does go a long way to explaining the dire experiences most of us have had with Toyota dealers, and with Toyota GB as I have discovered :evil: Here is the article http://www.timesplus.co.uk/sto/news/insight/article867712.ece as you need a subscription to read it, I've...

    Wild driving - Showtime & Tim Cameron

    Following this thread, I watched some of the other videos of the truck/buggy and driver, Tim Cameron - it appears he's something of a celebrity among the rock-buggy fraternity of the Southern US :mrgreen: And a hillbilly of note... Anyway, the green buggy (Hellraiser) has been sold and he built...

    BF Goodrich tyres in the Dakar

    Scroll most of the way down the page to see the tyres being used. They have an "All Terrain+" tyre that the main prototype cars seem to be using. Some of the more production car-based prototypes like the Bowler are using KM2s - I would have thought that the KM2s didn't have a high enough speed...

    Water in an autobox - repairs

    A friend of mine is looking at a 12v 80 that had the oil cooler fail inside the rad and coolant ended up in the gearbox. The seller says that the gearbox was repaired by a specialist transmission crowd and it all works fine now. I presume that the first sign the owner had of the problem was when...

    Towbar removal question

    I have been removing my standard towbar in preparation for the fitment of a receiver bar. The various bolts have been fun to get off so far - years of salt and mud in an exposed position and you can guess the rest. The bolts on the chassis were a combination of captive nuts and normal nuts -...

    83mm Hole Saw

    Following my new acquisition, I will need an 83mm hole saw. As I am not planning to cut more than one 83mm hole in the foreseeable future, I'd rather borrow than buy a saw if anyone has one bouncing around. Obviously I will cover postage to and from you (or collect if you're in the SW...

    Chemical metal?

    I have heard people refer to "liquid metal", "chemical metal" etc as good stuff to fix a crack in metal that cannot be welded or for a quick fix when on the road. Anyone have any recommendations on what is good and what is not? A quick search throws up Loctite with their Chemical Metal brand and...

    LSPV adjustment after 2" lift

    I fitted the lifted suspension to my 80 quite a while back and did not bother with caster correction or the LSPV adjustment. The truck drives fine so I thought I'd leave it for a while and see how it went. Well my brake warning light came on on the dash causing me to scratch my head a bit -...

    Rear section of exhaust

    I replaced the rotten rear section of the exhaust yesterday - the rotten section appears to be aftermarket (no branding or anything) while the replacement one is a branded Toyota part that I got 2nd hand from Karl.

    Handbrake light coming on intermittently

    I presume I have some kind of electrical gremlin. Symptom is my handbrake light comes on occasionally on my 80 - the handbrake is definitely not on (it only gets used at MOT time anyway) and the handbrake is working ok. When I drive off the handbrake light comes on but it goes off when stopped...
