    Front door weather strip replaced

    I replaced the outer weather strip on the LJ70 recently as it was misshapen and hanging off the door - not a good look. I ordered the part from It cost a fortune, but arrived very quickly. I made a point of ordering a set of clips but the part arrived with the clips already...

    LJ70 2LT Fuel filter drain how to

    Hi, 1989 LJ70. I can't find an instruction for draining water from the fuel filter. I can see what looks like a drain pipe at the bottom of the filter. What do I turn to release any water? How much to drain? Do I need to prime the fuel system afterwards?

I am keen to keep the original wheels rather than buy after market replacements. The centres seem to be in good condition, but the rims / barrels are affected by rust. The back...

    Sunroof spacer and washer

    I have started to try to diagnose a stuck and leaking sun roof. The roof appears stuck in the closed position. I can hear the motor try to move but the roof does not budge.

    Hi, The gasket between my turbo and exhaust manifold is blowing. I think I have a rough idea what needs to be removed but I am probably wrong somewhere and I would like some instructions to follow if possible. Anyone done this? Do you have written instructions or video? The oil supply lines...

    Coolant temperature gauge not working

    Lj70 (2l-T). The coolant temperature gauge is not working. I have tested by taking the supply wire to the sender to ground and the gauge goes to maximum. I tested the sender itself as OK, but replaced it anyway. The supply voltage to the sender seems to fluctuate, which seems odd to me. What...

    New UK LJ70 Owner saying hello!
