Think I found the connection at fault, a cable running from positive battery terminal going into a connector block was badly corroded and snapped off at the connector as I wiggled it, was probably only connected by a couple of strands of copper. When I touch cable to its connector block dash...
Hi all, hoping someone can help please.
My 1989 LJ70 has been garaged for the winter on a trickle charger.
When I tried to start up today (first time this year) there was some power to the dash (radio came to life) but battery/alternator light was on and clearly not enough power to turn the...
Amy, I use Car Spare Parts & Auto Accessories - [Leaving Land Cruiser Club] who are based in Dubai and as far as I know they ship anywhere in the world. I've used them three times now for delivery to the UK.

Guys - I thought I would share how I got a snorkel fitted to my 1989 LJ70 with a 2LT-E engine. This is a vehicle originally sold in the UK.
There were a few complications caused by the fact I own a 1989 (round headlight) model but we managed to work through them and documented everything below...

I’m looking to get a snorkel for my 1989 LJ70 (with a 2.4L 2L-T) and could do with some advice please.
Firstly which one? Safari do the SS71R but these are expensive (if I can even get hold of one) and I’m not sure they're worth the money? Bravo do the ST70 for around £180 which I...
After removing the screw from the door handle you need to slide the handle sideways (can't remember if it's left or right) and the handle will come away. You might then need to disconnect the rod from the handle to take the door card off, it's a bit fiddly but do-able
I have the same vehicle, I've trawled the internet for a few years and scraped together some manuals that may or may not be completely relevant.
I've shared them here - the link will expire after one week.
Hi Graeme, I had the same questions on my mind a couple of years ago. Ultimately I decided that choice of tyres was the biggest priority and there were a lot more options in metric.
I got rid of my 31x10.5 r15's and ordered some 215/80/15 Bridgestone Dueller A/T's which were about £84 each (ex...
