    Using lanoguard for a number of years now, I've noticed it seems to soften up the flakey rust and pushes it off if applied often. It also softens old wax oil.

    no paint will adhere to lanoguard. ime you will use the most on the first couple of applications. after that its a matter of topping up the more wear prone areas. it works well but does need regular re application. as its so clean and easy to apply this isnt a problem ime. any time i do any...

    i know what you mean, some of the 24 valve 80s ive had in seem to be in much worse condition than some of the earlier 12 valves. must be a coincidence...?? surely.. or maybe toyota were gearing up towards the rust buckets that are the 100, 120 and 200 series...

    Dash lights up like a Christmas tree. Oh the engine is low on compression on a couple of cylinders. Lots of back pressure and smokes badly. Will need a rebuild. I rebuilt this over winter to replace it.

    One of the reasons I bought it is the underside is pretty damn good.. given it a good coating of lanoguard.

    as is the title i will be working on this when time and money permit. its a 12 valve auto, so will complement my 24 valve manual nicely. it will be a civilised build so nothing exciting. TBH it will be pretty boring but will document some of the more mundane jobs that come with 80 ownership. as...

    ‘97 80 series intro

    the aircon system in the 80 is pretty simple. the most obvious, a leak/leaks. knackered compressor. pressure switch needs replacing. i notice on your toyota invoice it states 650g of R134A. to my knowledge it should be 900g. when any major component is replaced; compressor,evaporator,condenser...

    G Turbo group buy

    good time to replace corroded turbo water/oil pipes, plus the long coolant pipe. unless you like rolling the dice, good idea to use new manifold gaskets and replace the sealing rings where the manifold splits. manifold nuts and studs can sometimes be pretty corroded too.

    Your world won't stop spinning that's for sure. I've been slacking lately, but I normally stock the complete set of bushes for the 80 series. They were not much more money than the nolathene bushes. I remember my dad constantly replacing oem range rover bushes, I think thats when the poly...

    No New Land Cruisers in the UK

    ive said it before, imo there is nothing special about a landcruiser any more. they are playing on there heritage. if i could afford to spend 110k, it wouldnt be on a landcruiser.
