    a lot of warning lights

    All good here thanks. Just got back from a 6 month tour of the Balkans. Hope you’re all good. I’m keen to come back to Portugal soon, be good to catch up and drive some trails.

    Yep, will be a voltage issue. Either alternator or cable as suggested

    SnoMaster EX67D Expedition Dual Compartment Fridge Freezer

    I only noticed because the temp was outside of the range for my setting. I usually set the temp to 2C so the range is 0-4C but I saw it was over 4C. When it happened I could see the compressor light was on but it wasn’t running. I simply switched off and on and it worked again. Only ever done it...

    Balkans 2023 - into Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Albania

    Superb. We’re just returning from our 6 month trip to the same countries! I’ll do a little write up in a week or two. No doubt we visited many of the same places.

    ASFIR spare tyre carrier

    That bolts directly to the chassis
  12. Lorin

    Swing away tyre carrier build

    The only tip I’d give is to check if what you want already exists. Unless you can do it yourself, good fabrication is not cheap. With hindsight I could have ordered a self-weld kit from the US for about the same as my solution cost.

    How to get a steady 12v supply for camper trailer ect???

    If the LC200 is a standard 12 volt system, I would suggest simply removing the existing wiring and running dedicated feeds from the starter battery to wherever you want to go. You can then be sure the wiring is as it should be. I have a trailer with a DCDC charger powered by a single feed from...

    100 Series aircon compressor rebuild options?

    Air Conditioning radiator

    The coolant mixing with ATF is another of those supposed issues with AFAIK absolutely no evidence in Toyotas. I’ve certainly never come across any report of it happening in a Toyota. If the OEM radiator is in good shape this is not going to be an issue and as I stated above, that is a...

    Air Conditioning radiator

    People who don’t understand the Toyota cooling system are forever suggesting that. These are the same people who often then go on about the dangers of over-cooling your AT fluid. Both are rubbish. You’ll find that those who do understand the system suggest keeping the standard cooler and adding...

    Vague steering, worn shaft? Stronger shaft upgrade?

    I wonder if roughtrax would rebuild a box with a new shaft supplied by you…? Shafts can be got from chapel gate

    Vague steering, worn shaft? Stronger shaft upgrade?

    If you did want a fully rebuilt box you could probably get one from the US for significantly less than Toyota even including shipping, import and VAT 19721: 1990-1997 Toyota LandCruiser Steering Gear - [Leaving Land Cruiser Club]

    Vague steering, worn shaft? Stronger shaft upgrade?

    Stronger shaft and arm are available but not needed unless running bigger tyres. I believe roughtrax do fully rebuilt steering boxes on an exchange basis

    Roof tenting & touring Europe

    You’ve already answered your first question. There is no way round the 90/180 rule. You simply have to manage your time in Schengen and non-Schengen countries, evidencing your time in each with stamps in your passport. There are no options for long stay visas that are not very complicated and...

    How high is the return water temperature for a 1HDT?

    I also have the same on my current 80 and had one on the previous 80. Both always read 70-80c under normal driving, spiking to an absolute max of 95-100c when engine severely worked (climbing alpine pass towing in 30c).

    Anyone got a spare fusible link?

    I’d already got a quote from my local dealer before posting. It is not critical enough to warrant such an extortionate price. This thread was simply to ask if anyone had one spare as I don’t have enough time to risk shipping from Amayama or Partsouq.

    80 Series 12v Starter recomendations? (for a 24-12v convesrion)

    Dave did indeed convert to 12v starter from a 100 series but it is not a straight swap as there are a different number of teeth on the cog which needs sorting. The starter I linked above is a straight swap. It is the one that I and many others have used to convert from 24 to 12v start. This is...

    Transmission Failure? Big Bang and Grinding Noise

    Yes. Only difference in transfers is those with and without the VC. Cases are HF2AV and HF2A respectively. I believe either can have or not have the PTO cover. In other markets the 80 with part-time has a different transfer - HF1A

    Transmission Failure? Big Bang and Grinding Noise

    Is there anyway the transfer isn’t going into high properly? Definitely worth making sure it is engaging high. If you've got drive with no grinding when the transfer is in Low, but no drive and grinding when the transfer is in high, the issue is in the transfer box. If this is correct, you’re...

    Transmission Failure? Big Bang and Grinding Noise

    I assume you’ve checked it’s not a front drive flange…? I’d be much more inclined to think the transfer failed than the transmission. I’ve had this happen with same symptoms. Check what happens to noise with transfer in neutral.
