    Knocking Sound in Engine Bay?

    did the shop not take it for a test drive after completion of the work? you stated the vehicle stopped when the gasket let go. the only thing i can think of is one cylinder has hydro locked, causing valve,rod,piston or crank damage.

    i agree. i once got a 1000 litres of cheap diesel off someone i knew. (relax everyone, it was legal) i even filtered it through some old pants before filling up. i was doing 70 miles a day at the time. i was literally emptying the water collector twice a week, and blowing down the fuel flow...

    Given your Druthers: '91 or '97 Turbo Diesel?

    all things being reasonable equal, as in, one isnt a complete nail. i would go for the 97. not because its younger, but because it will have the 1HD FT. plus the points grimbo has made regarding the interior. 186000 miles is middle aged for these motors btw.

    The end of slavery

    i agree. so the following is acceptable? or do you find it to be because you agree? no one has a problem with a debate. causing criminal damage is hardly a debate. fact or opinion? “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories" a quote from Patrisse...

    The end of slavery

    Hello! Cross continental traveller, looking for first Land Cruiser purchase advice.

    spot on. the diesel V8 doesnt seem to be held in particularly high regard in oz. the 1HDT and 1HDFT can literally be run on a tyre on the workshop floor. they are very easy to work on, insanely reliable and parts availability is still good. you can get a mint one from japan easy enough. the...

    A universal torque wrench setting

    without a torque wrench ime youll over tighten small bolts and under tighten larger ones. back in the day before stretch bolts, it would be all about the length of the bar to get the "correct" torque. 6" 1/4 drive for the small stuff, 18" 1/2 drive for the medium and 36" 3/4 drive for the...
