    Ignition Key difficult to turn for starting

    Worth pointing out that my aftermarket replacement ignition barrel and door locks have a different cheaper style key to OEM. Now I need to carry an original key for fuel caps and another for the door/ignition. You can't get the fuel cap barrels swapped either..... Bugger

    Ignition Key difficult to turn for starting

    Hi My money pit of an early 2006 HZJ79R is trying my patience Short story.... Sprayed lubricant down the keyhole of the ignition barrel as the key release button was getting sticky. Now I have to wobble my key to turn on the ignition. I'm going to assume my ignition barrel was full of gunk...

    HZJ75 or HZJ79 for overland camper?

    79 for the bigger cab so you have a bit more space to push the seat back. I would prefer something with 2 seats. Maybe you should look at a.... dare I say it..... Landrover Defender 130

    Main Beam Delay

    Early 2006 HZJ79R When I first twist the knob to turn on my low beam it works fine. Occasionally when I flick the stalk forward for main beam my lights will go out for 2 or 3 seconds. After that it usually works fine Any suggestions?

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Finally ..... the sender on the sub tank had a 'gradual dead' spot so would read different if it was on the flat, slope, going up hill etc... Ran a wire across the main wiring sender to check the gauge.... showed full Checked the rear sub tank sender for continuity and ohms resistance...

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Bugger.... I'm falling out of love with this car... fuel gauges both went to just about empty at the same time. If I short out the sub tank it reads full without the engine running. Alternator voltage with the engine at a tad above tickover after starting is 13.4v and no warning lights Any...

    Yes first post is with the adaptors. You still need an engineer report.

    Swap out passenger bench seat in a 79

    Seat belt has to pass around the seat, not through it. Has a cheese wire action in a crash but check with your engineer. Look for my footprints as you're walking down the same path I took. If you're in Perth maybe call Custom Cab in Bassendean.

    Engineers report and roadworthy was about $500. Check where the passenger seat belt will be

    Swap out passenger bench seat in a 79

    2 ways you can do it... Weld a plate to the top with captive nuts, easier than the way I did it. Seat belt bolt holes are 165mm apart on centers. I removed the fuel tank etc, drilled spot welds, cut the box section, insert a 'golden' ADR approved seat belt bolt retaining plate and knocked up...

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    I saw a Facebook post with random warning lights on the gauge cluster. Most of the comments suggested checking the alternator and associated wiring

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Given that there is an intermittent fault I'm thinking it's a poor connectiosome some where. Next time I have a free weekend I will pull out the seats and take a look at the main tank. Back of the gauge cluster is a printed circuit on a plastic backing.

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    I spoke too soon..... I have 2 gauges on the left side. Both tanks are full at the moment but the gauge for the main slowly dropped so low it looked more like a broken wire.... then I turned off the sub tank button to feed from the main tank and it creeped back to where I would expect it to be...

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Charge rate is 14.2 but I couldn't unplug the alternator without fear of breaking it. Guess it's one of those 'once you know it's easy' things. However think I might have fixed it. Cleaned all the connections, including behind the dash, with 'Electronic Circuit Board Cleaner' and an ear bud...

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    I just looked and the main tank said full and the sub says half..... Great. However after I turned on the ignition the sub gauge went to near empty....!?

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    Both gauges move slowly. When I move the sub tank sender to the full position it slowly reads full. Disconnect the wire and it reads empty. If I put a wire across the sender gauge side, (unplugged) it reads full.

    fuel gauges are all over the place

    HZJ79.... fuel gauges are all over the place. Main is full but gauge moves between full, half then back to full. Sub says just above empty but it's at least half. I have removed the sub sender and it reads full when it's out of the tank...... Are the two gauges on the same circuit? Is there a...

    Are these recovery points or tie down points?

    I had a bit of a search and can only find "towing points". What do people use for recovery points?

    Are these recovery points or tie down points?

    HZJ79.... are these recovery points or tie down points? I have one each side. Look a bit weak for recovery but figured I should ask the brains trust before I take them off.

    Swap out passenger bench seat in a 79

    Hi Had a look at the Huracan seat conversion for my 79 series. Didn't like the passenger side because it left the rail behind and the seat belt arrangement was IMO dangerous. Looking to add a bolting point for a seat belt in a better location Reflection of the drivers side would be ideal Has...
