    Good stuff

    It’s been a long time since I did my theory during my apprenticeship but I’m sure it’s 1.3bar for a normal radiator cap which raises the boiling point of straight water to around 120c, the use of correct Toyota coolant brings this to 125c under the pressure of 1.3bar
  4. Jake the Peg


    I wouldn’t be too concerned about that either, you could have a coolant system flush done, change of thermostat to a lower opening temp and replace the coolant with a waterless type, this will increase the boiling point of the coolant. It could be worth having an exhaust gas temp installed, this...

    Best 80 series tyre size

    I’ve got a few sets of 16”wheels for the 80 for sale, 1 set of 4 oem wheels, 1 set of 5 and 1 set of 4 jap import 5 spokes. The set of 5 wheels is fairly decent but the other 2 sets would need a refurb!

    Clutch Slip Travel Risk?

    @Higgy i think he was already there turning to us to say go for it, but if it’s slipping in mud, how much confidence would you have setting off for a long trip? I’m with you on the supping ale tho:)

    Clutch Slip Travel Risk?

    I’d think if the clutch was indeed slipping in the mud, and not being ridden, with that mileage it would be worth making plans to have it changed asap, as you don’t have time to do it before you leave can you schedule a day to have it done on the trip, this will also allow you to plan a suitable...

    @Odin 8 i don’t think there was any animosity meant in the comments, and I’m sure we are all glad your experience was good at Valley 4x4 but we find his advertising highly amusing, it’s always in a “SHOUTING” manner, everything is the the best thing since sliced bread and a general poor use of...

    Do I take the risk

    @fbnss Don’t! Last weekend I locked them in the ignition, the button to open the doors wouldn’t work so I had to ”re-profile” that door lock. At least it was a job I had to do as it was the last lock to change for 1 key…

    @Indie contact Kelly Bray Steering, they did a superb job on my 80 steering box, they may be able to sort you out as well

    Do I take the risk

    That’s sucking some diesel! Checking the v5 this guy had it since April, likely bought it as a “do upper” Nothing bad in the mot history so definitely worth looking at, and if the work done is good in current market I think it’s a good price. Check what has been done to the engine and running...

    Do I take the risk

    I’d as him if he has other photos of the truck during repairs, and before, especially the front of he wing and lower rear quarter repairs. I’d say he knows what he is doing if it’s him who has done the pain and repairs, windows out show it’s not just a quick tart up job to sell. Make sure you do...

    @Shayne how did you do the castor correction, I’m going to be replacing my axle case and would like to improve my driving experience with getting the castor and track set properly this time!

    Any plan on the cruiser(s) over Xmas break?

    @Raj dont forget to use wheel chocks and start on level ground. Great to see you plan some new skills. Worth a pair of safety glasses and work gloves if your going to venture underneath when you have it jacked :)

    Suspension 80

    I’d look at getting EFS from the guy in Poland, @Chris rates them highly, and I have on my own 80. Were a decent price and after a year of use still look like brand new, ride well

    New owner seeking advice and thoughts!

    It looks like is been on the passenger side, all the body arches are screwed on, a big dent high up in the rear pillar, rear spoiler is missing the end and the passenger headlight looks like it points downwards sidelight / indicator doesn’t fit properly, I’d be concerned at what damage is below...

    I think this is my favourite 80, second up @clivehorridge, last step on the podium @Chris and then my own old truck!
  41. Jake the Peg

    Who is doing what maintenance today?

    4 new track rod ends to keep the new steering box company, welded the anti roll bar brackets back to the axle and fitted my original Toyota alloys. Just to get the tracking done now and it’s hopefully mot time!

    Repairing a vandalised ignition barrel.

    I assume there was no damage to any wiring around the lock or key transducer or the transducer itself? My only guess might be that the key isn’t being read?

    Repairing a vandalised ignition barrel.

    I think might need to have your original key taped up to the transducer or kept close to the inserted key?

    Crap night at work!

    That’s the platform known as Alpha, 2/4A. I’ve worked many shifts on there in my younger days, it was for its last years in operation unmanned and we used to shuttle across from the complex whenever there was our intervention work. It was spooky as heck in the living accommodation with nobody in...

    80 front bumper corner caps

    Actually I should have updated this, I bought these and they are decent enough. I bought a genuine set from eBay, but the seller lost them The day he was posting them…must have decided they were too cheap...
