    1992 brake upgrade

    I heard that u could use the 100 Series pads on an 80, but have always been a bit sceptical due to side etc. Last thing I want is to lose a pad. Is there a big difference in performance?

    Air conditioning condenser!

    This is exactly what I was about to search. I believe that my 1996 needs part number 88460-60160. Does anyone have any advice on a generic alternative. Nissens seems to pop up a lot. Also - Does anyone know the sizes of the o-rings required? And lastly - should I also be replacing the dryer?

    Land Cruiser increasing in value?

    I think the availability of 80 series (and good 90; 100; 105; 120) are drying up. Not much seems to be on the market at present. I know a guy looking for a late 80 series and there does not appear to be much running around.

    CDL not engaging in Low Range -1994 VX80.

    Hi all A friend of mine is looking at buying a 1994 HD-T. Apparently the Lockers don’t engage, both on the axel and the CDL. it’s a UK spec truck in Africa. So hopefully it’s not too rusty and the Acel lockers are ok. If not that’s a pretty simple fix. the question is what about the CDL not...

    Converting a 100 series to 105.

    In my humble opinion - what makes a cruiser great is that it is a simple Toyota design. If you try and mate 2 very different pieces together I think you might have an issue especially if you need parts in the middle o f now where. The 100 series is a great car - maybe not as rugged as an 105...

    Krown rusproofing - discount available?

    I popped up to see Rob at KROWN for the first time this weekend. Really happy with the service and attention he took while working on the Car. What really impressed me was he knew exactly which cavities needed investigating and attention. I did spend 5hrs in a car but feel it was worth it.

    Woman killed by a TOW BALL!!!

Or the other version are these...

    Just joined the club with a cruiser! (Again)

    My 80 is an import and was register as a "light utility vehicle" as opposed to an "estate". I managed to get the DVLA to change this but only after convincing Toyota UK that this was the same as a UK spec.

    Roof Rack, Help required

    I bought a similar Roofrack for my 80 and was told it was for a LC80. At the price I paid I thought it was worth a gamble. In hindsight I think it was from a discovery 1 or 2. The legs were way too tall. I managed to find a set of replacement legs (size 2 I think) on eBay for £60 for the set...

    I prefer the idea of slinging a tank under the floor pan and using the space that way. - aux tank - battery box - water tank - diesel heater Chris installed a box for his battery which I thought was pretty smart. But it’s something that you rarely need to get to. I have a set of drawers in...
