    Red or Pink Coolant

    Yep, there is pink and red, premixed and concentrate, I think we can all agree on that. The premixed red, is still red, just not so dark as the concentrate, but will obviously lean towards pink, if topped up all the time with plain or de ionized water, so with looking in an unknown vehicles...

    Sorry Adrian, my mistake there, dipping you in for extra work. I remember you now talking about the drilling to fit the moonies. Cheers.

    Front and rear parking sensors stopped working

    That info from Karl is the best your gonna get. I have the original handbook for these supplied with vehicle when new , TPA800. It just gives an idea how they work, an idiot could figure that out, and if having problems , "please contact the installer", well, that would have been Toyota...

    Front and rear parking sensors stopped working

    IMHO they can make you lazy and reliant on something that sooner or later is not reliable. They are of no use anyway if you strike something low, midship. Yes, use them as a guide if you have to, but never rely on them completely, there is no substitute for your eyes, in conjunction with...

    Where to buy part online?

    Yep, Roughtrax or Milners. I have dealt with both, and they both do some genuine parts and aftermarket too.

    Front and rear parking sensors stopped working

    Yep, my rears are turned off and the fronts had their throat's cut, but that's no help to you, sorry. I just got fed up with the bloody things playing up, and decided I don't need 'em. The first time mine played up, and I was getting nowhere, Karl told me to lightly rub my finger across the...

    Recommendations for new tyres

    Hi Adrian, currently running Cooper discoverer at3. They were on the lc3 when I bought it around 18 months ago. I find them quite a soft compound rubber, and at the recommended pressures, they looked flattish, and the steering at low speeds was a struggle, even though the ride was comfortable. I...

    Purchases from Europe

    I believe that was free post Chas, as I ordered the same thing pre Brexit, and paid the advertised £165, with no additions.

    Purchases from Europe

    A member on here bought something from Roumania, reduced from £165 to £135, the threshold. This was thought to be a reduction in price to get around all this nonsense. Not so, no indication was made of any further charges, but a few weeks later, a bill for £50+ from hrmc arrives. WTF ? They make...

    Suction Control Valve Removal

    They were the good old days I remember Juddian, and my main experience of injectors, etc on hgv. That's why I can't get my head around'modern improvements, and swapping bits round. Old school I may be, but it all worked and for a very long time, not like some of the shyte now. I don't know what...

    Suction Control Valve Removal

    Thanks Tony, for that explanation. I still can't get my head around the failures and the wear though. Through all my years hgv1, travelling thousands of miles in old workhorses to start with, to later more modern, all of many types, and all with copper washers to my working knowledge, there was...

    Suction Control Valve Removal

    I have never understood why copper was pretty much always the given for injector washers, then they aren't good enough now. Obviously Toyota thought copper was the way to go with d4d, and they worked in their design and testing, so what happened to cost them and others serious money, and...

    Suction Control Valve Removal

    Thanks Tony, for revising Rob's thread. Another gem. A bit concerning though, that they are supplied with copper washers from injection specialists, who obviously don't understand the problem there. It's so demoralising when things don't go as hoped, after spending money and putting in hours...

    Thanks for update Tony. Shameful how they carried on to the last, but money in bank now, so fork em, they're the losers overall. Sorry to hear you're no further forward after going through that shit, so frustrating. £500 sounds cheap for the injectors, are they from one of our well known sources...

    Heater

    Ok Buller, I see you have posted in 90 series, so hopefully you will get some response there. Meanwhile as you have said, do a search on there. Its bloody miserable when its freezing and you cant get enough heat. Good luck.

    Heater

    Hi there Buller, welcome to the forum, not sure of the set up in your 90, whether you have the d4d engine and digital controls or manual knobs, levers for heat control. I don't think there is a control valve on bulkhead under bonnet like 70s, that can sometimes get stuck, as cable operated. If...

    Yeah, must be loads of people not subscribing to any of the media mentioned. I know lots of people doing same I watch a little selected tv, no radio, except some music and the newsflashes that intervene, no newspapers, etc, yet I don't feel deprived or cut off. There's too much bullshit and...

    WTF Covid.

    Yes as said, no proper control over people who are coming into the country, and there is an onus on people in the UK to accept the the blame and rules in place, not do as they like, while the rest of us lock down and face a losing battle. It would appear we havn't fully taken control of our...

    I would say off the top of my head Frank, too many people still doing as they like, whereby spreading it further, and no proper control over who is coming into the country.

    Towing a caravan

    Can't help either sorry, not towed with it yet due covid. The two offset barn doors mentioned on the 70s, were great. Could always get narrow open and if truck was turned at the correct angle to caravan, could get wide open too.

    Karl's description is clear and self explanatory, and you can't really go wrong, but if you install the correct batteries in their wrong positions, the leads don't stretch to fit.

    LJ78 price?

    Hi Junaid, no not at present. I will see how the market goes as and when. All I can say is, it wont be silly money, but nor will it be a giveaway job either, considering condition and what it is, with cylinder head etc all done now. Yes there are issues with the lacquer, but some I have seen in...

    Yuasa, yep good batteries used as standard equipment, especially on Jap cars. The Mrs had one for years on her old Honda civic with no probs, and the newer civic has got one too. I replaced the two batteries on my 120 which were knackered, with the bigger, slightly uprated Varta, IIRC 950amps...

    LJ78 price?

    Bill, I have still got it, but will not be putting up for sale while covid is still with us. I have now moved on to a 120, not quite so agricultural, but still miss the old girl. Never had such a reliable and useful vehicle that outlasted everything, and I doubt the 120 will have such longevity...

    Leaking B Pillar

    Sikafex gets my vote too, there are loads of types and a few colours, some are adhesive sealers some structural sealers, and as said some can be removed and some not. I bonded a large solar panel on the roof of my caravan 4/5 years ago, and its still securely there, just choose wisely the one...

    Rear recovery point

    I have successfully towed, pulled a car out of a ditch, and given tow starts to several vehicles, when I had that standard fitment on my 78. That 'ring' is bolted through the rear crossmember, so has strength in it, and is bloody heavy gauge. As to hard core recovery, maybe too lightweight. You...
