HZJ75 purchase

Hi folks,
I'm after some help/advice with purchasing a '96 HZJ75 pickup - 4.2dsl + retrofitted turbo
My main enquiries are
1. To what extent are engine/transmission/axle parts interchangeable with other 7 series vehicles ?
2. Are parts readily available otherwise, if so are they heinously expensive ?
3. What sort of fuel economy should I expect from this block with a turbo ?
Any help would be much appreciated
Cheers

Hi Nick,
Welcome to the list.
First off I don't really know the 75 series, but guess there will be
several similarities with the 80 series.
I have the parts CDs here for all Toyotas so provided with your VIN
number should be able to look for specific common parts for you.
You certainly should be able to swap engine stuff with 80 series.
(Keep an eye on EBay, because there CDs come up quite regularly at a
reasonable price).
Your best bet is to talk to Milner Off Road at:
http://www.milneroffroad.com/Lj70.htm.
They sell a lot of service stuff for 70s and 80s at good prices so you
should be able to get most of what you need.
Dealers will be very expensive, although it is recommended to use
genuine Toyota antifreeze, fuel filters, oil filters, but again you
should be able to get them from Milner.
Also, a good local motor factors should be able to supply some key
stuff like bearings,etc at sensible prices.
Giving it a turbo brings it to roughly the same level as an HDJ80 with
the 1HD-T engine which provides about 25-26mpg for an auto and 28-30mpg
for a manual, although I guess you are carrying less weight so you may
get better.
I hope that helps.
I am sure others will chip in with further input.

The 75 series cruiser does not share many components with the 70 series
available in this country.
The 70 had either a 2.5 or 3.0 turbo diesel engine and coil springs all
round.
If yours is a 96 you probably have the coil front end, which is basically an
80 series axle, but your rear is leaf spring.
What is the history of yours?Is it a Jap import?
I have a real soft spot for them and nearly bought one but it sold before I
could get to it.
There is a list dedicated to them here:
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/TLC70series/
But it is VERY quiet!!!
These vehicles are really popular in Aus and Africa and are very tough.
I would guess somewhere around the 30 mpg mark.Is yours auto or manual? Does
it have the electric locking hubs and diff locks?
Have you bought it and how much and where from????
There are plenty of 'pattern' parts available from places like Milner
Conversions here:
http://www.milneroffroad.com/4x4.htm
Though Milner don't list yours separately they should know what bits fit
what.
Toyota GB have a well balanced outlook toward grey imports (unlike HONDA et
al) and the dealers all have the Jap EPC and can order these bits. Overall
there is also a high level of interchangeability of spares other Toyota cars
etc. but it is really a case of visit your local scrapyard and have a
rummage.
I would recommend purchasing all the Toyota manuals from your local dealer
and get your own copy of the EPC which is available on eBay for about ?10.
These will help you see what does and does not fit.
