    Handbrake dogbone/spacer

    Thanks Brett. For the sake of other readers who might encounter this problem, I lowered the tank slightly, and using string and wire was able to push/pull the cable through, but it took hours.

    Rear Axle Leaking Oil Seal & Possible Wheel Bearing

    One would hope, Chris. LOL. But I was thinking posterity. I see lots of people with bearing and seal issues that go undetected until the entire bearing collapses. At speed, this can be scary. Likewise, I read through lots of posts just so I can learn a bit, even though these may never be my...

    Handbrake dogbone/spacer

    Hi to Brett and Dave. Regarding a HZJ75 troopie... I currently have my old cable almost removed but can't pull it through from above the fuel tank. Did you lower the tank to get yours out and, obviously, install the new one the same way? I would really appreciate some advice here. And many...

    Rear Axle Leaking Oil Seal & Possible Wheel Bearing

    Steven... I don't know 80s series but regardless, your seal preventing diff oil from reaching your hub is not working. These get damaged when installing and removing the axle. Get a new seal, and tap it in incrementally with a flat piece of wood and a heavy hammer or heavy brass drift, making...

    Oil pressure sender not working

    The most common cause of oil pressure sender not working is faulty connection of the two wires situated on the sender, fitted to the engine block, beneath the oil filter. If these are connected adequately, then the sender itself may be faulty. This screws out of the block and can be replaced for...

    Landcruiser... the only vehicle that survives Arnhem Land, Australia.

    I have a problem. I cannot get my head around the mechanics of the rear axle /hub assembly. The front? No problem. it seems straightforward to me. More specifically, I don't understand the oil seal configuration of the rear axle. The reason I am grappling with this, is that it is leaking diff...

    Engine Mount replacement.

    I am reluctant to jack my troopie engine up via the sump, as its distortion or collapse would destroy the oil intake. Anyone know the best point to jack from to change the mounts on an HZJ75?
