    Toyota diagnostic wire part 09843-18040

    Probably mentioned before, but a decent (i.e. accurate, Norbar etc.) torque wrench will be your friend. If you check the drain plugs and they're below spec for tightness then nudge them up. If ok then (as already mentioned) new seals were not used. Until you get used to tightening things up, a...

    Need new front prop UJ's

    One thing I did notice with the 95 was a slight tendency to understeer under power with the front prop off, not a lot but might be worth bearing in mind. GMB ujs (as sold by RT) have been fine for me, never tried the Toyo.

    Adding interior light 12v / 24v ?

    Hella do a range called Valuefit. I've just got some 7" single led spots (had to get them from USA as Hella UK say they are not stocking them), not fitted yet but well built and very bright. You can get the light bars in the UK: Hella ValueFit Light Bar Range - [Leaving Land Cruiser Club]

    Stove options

    My previous stove before the dual fuel was a Coleman Gladiator propane twin burner, worked well on blowtorch 400g propane refills (about a tenner a go). It was ok, but the dual fuel is a more durable thing.

    +1 on the Coleman. Picked one up on Ebay, haven't used it much so far but running it on Aspen 4 (a bit pricey, but you don't use much) it stays nice and clean.

    auto or manual for 1HD FT

    Both true here. :) But the auto works well on my 81, does have other positions than D and with an O/D switch, a bit of thought and a careful right foot I don't feel my manliness is under threat. I do miss the engine braking a bit sometimes, but in traffic it's worth it.

    Brake warning light (handbrake warning light)

    Handbrake switch (at lever) sounds likely, can get a bit fluffy, good place to start.

    +1 on checking with your local friendly (?) Toyota dealer. I rang round a couple of years ago and the price was as good as anywhere. So far no problems.

    This diesel shortage then

    Just as important is to let the engine idle for a minute or so after a fast run (motorway etc.) to keep the oil feed to the turbo going.

    This diesel shortage then

    Just checked again and it's running at about 56p a litre (1000 litre price) at the moment. Either I read it wrong before (quite possible) or it was a blip. Nice price on the diesel !

    This diesel shortage then

    Just had a look at heating oil (kerosene) prices, up from about 45p a litre to about 65p in just over a week. Haven't checked the price of cetane improvers yet ......

    This diesel shortage then

    Probably not with regards to fuel deliveries. A lot are handled by logistics firms and fuel delivery drivers, quite rightly, have to have the right qualifications. A look at somebody like Hoyers (German firm with UK branch) vacancy lists will give an idea of present problems. A lot of logistic...
