    my 90 series (what i have done so far after buying it)

    Hi Laszio. Regarding the a/c belt length. I had a 79 series single cab pickup which I replaced with a 76 series wagon. Exactly the same engine, gearbox and looked the same under the bonnet, except for the a/c belt length. Toyota decided to run the single cab's a/c compressor slower because the...

    Engine fan viscous unit......

    I've just replaced mine with a RT Asin unit too and yes, it makes a huge difference, mine was also driving all the time, now it's a LOT quieter.

    My GS 80 lifted 3"

    Thanks Bill, appreciate it. 285/75's or 255/85's , Mud's or A/T's.... Looks good Chris, but in my opinion, 35's would require a Diff Ratio drop, never ending circle :-)

    HDJ100 - Refurb before expeditions

    Nice Job, great to see another Cruiser being saved. I see you are using some sort of "quote" "Electrolysis bath for crusty bits..." It's worth googling "Hydrogen Embrittlement" Somewhere in the foggy depths of my memory I remember reading that this could occur during the home brewed rust...

    First ride in an FJ Cruiser

    A mate of mine had one in SA. I got to drive it on a 1600 mile trip. Nice to live with, if you can afford the petrol.... Don't really like the suicide doors.

    A-Pillar Gauge Pod fitted !

    Yep, pretty pricey, at my door for £102.65. Got it from Original parts group on ebay, no gauges. Took about 5 days to arrive. Postage pushes the price up a lot. My pump is tweaked a bit, I got it to peak at 700 deg C, full throttle for a while. Cruising at 70mph it's way lower, I will make some...

    Do you recognise this alloy wheel pattern?

    After buffing mine out, I now torque to 90 n/m. Seems to be okay and they have not come loose at all.

    Do you recognise this alloy wheel pattern?

    Thanks Mate, that's great. When you get them, have a look on the inner bore to see if they have deformed inwards. Mine have and it causes the wheels to lock onto the hubs and become very difficult to remove. I buffed mine with a flap wheel which improved matters. Regards Andy

    Do you recognise this alloy wheel pattern?

    Hi All I have them on my K2 swb 90. I think they were fitted standard to the K2 spec. They have taper nuts , which cause the alloys to deform, caused by over tightening or incorrect nuts. Mine are a bit deformed.... Are they still available? Regards Andy
