    Airbag light is on.

    Not sure if they are the same but on 100 series disconnect batteries and cable tie the +and - terminals together for 10/15 mins. This discharges any fault code or dash lights. Worked on my 100 series for engine light. Been off several weeks now.

    100 Series Solid Axle Swap

    Think this has been asked before and I think the general consensus is you would end up in a world of pain. The front end of both chassis are completely different 80to 100 and 100 to 105 again I believe I read are nothing alike. Not saying it can't be done. I think youd ruin a very underrated off...

    2nd Brecon Beacons Truck meet July 2022

    Home with feet up for a while now. Good to see everyone again. Shame about the lack of overland trucks there and the damp finish this morning. Enjoyable weekend in all. Mel and kids had a lovely time. Was good to see a few youngsters there playing together. Also seems I've gained a babysitter...

    Newbie question can a rusted sunroof be repaired?

    Try 80 breaker on ebay or google. The whole sunroof mechanism will unbolt and a good used one to replace it bolted in. With the interior headlining removed I don't think it's too technical a job

    Newbie question can a rusted sunroof be repaired?

    Garry at 80 breaker or Karl Webster on here or Chapel gate all sell parts and break 80 series cruisers. Could buy whole sunroof complete. Headlining out and it doesn't seem to bad a job.

    Bio fuel, good or bad?

    If they cant price us off the roads they will destroy our engines and make us pay for the privilege. Governments way of pushing electric cars. Same with the e5 /10 petrol farce.

    Oil consumption on 1KZ-TE with 230k miles

    My mates 200 uses 0.8 of a litre every 800kms. It is a new bottom end but I spoke to a mechanic who recons most modern diesel engines actually use oil. He mentioned Volvo and audis in particular.

    Pair of front seats.

    Chris,s passing on was tragic and a life cut short, but,as sad as it is we are still alive and many of us have so much to live for. Like myself Karl has a beautiful family and wonderful children. Its human nature to think negative so soon after something so tragic, but life is too short to be...

    HDJ81 for auction!

    Went over today and viewed. Solid truck all round really. No lockers and lacquer peel to wigs bonnet and roof as per usual. I bid up to £6500 for it bearing in mind 10% buyers premium. Was out bid by a guy who just wasn't stopping and really seemed to need to own it. Had a chat in the car park...

    New to the Land Cruiser world

    Likely to be wear in universal joints in propshafts and or front cv joints worn . These trucks are getting old now and as they don't tend to break to easily maintenance often gets overlooked and they just keep going until something does give. Then you generally find several jobs need doing all...

    knocking noise

    Cv joint for sure. Be sure to fit a genuine oil seal whilst it's out if you do it that is. If not using it hard off road chances are it wont break anytime soon anyway.

    Just sort a little bit of rust!!!

    Was what I thought was all my 24v manual really needed. Just popped in to see my mate jannis and the trucks on the ramp minus axle minus fuel tank and every component from the back of the gearbox too. Body jacked up about 10 inches and this is how the chassis is looking as he repairs the rust...

    Thetford laning 7/8 may.

    No didn't do those bits. We were planning to backtrack to thetford from our camp in the morning but breakfast became very relaxed affair to almost lunch time. Instead of running back half hour we picked up peddars at west acre Ford. I wasn't entirely sure on the legality on the thetford end of...
