Re: 70series prado auto

Ok some numbers for you. Ignore the fact I have grabbed an image of a manual 80 series trans... It just shows a good overview of where I measured from... The distance between the two mating faces of the transfercase drive shaft flanges is the 400mm dimention... The 545 measurement is from the joint ...

Re: 70series prado auto

yes from my observations the 1UZ auto has a longer output shaft so will need either swapping or cutting down to accept the adaptor / extention housing from a factory auto / split transfercase.
Phil Clarke at Force 4 runs the 1UZ in his Prado.... he would have some good insights for you.

Re: Fixing 80series winch stall issue

Nice work, have you tested the new brake yet?
I take it you checked the wiring and the solenoid to confirm its not a power supply issue to the motor causing it to stall?

But love the Kiwi ingenuity !

The trans temp warning light comes on around 120 C. Typical normal running temp is about 55 to 60C but this varies depending on load etc etc. The biggest heat generator is the torque converter... So if you dont have the converter locked and its doing its slipping thing it will generate a heap of hea...

Low stall torque converters

Hi All

Anyone have any real life experiences using a low stall converter in their diesel powered trucks?
Looking at getting one from Aussie for my Landcruiser Prado. As the factory one is struggling with more torque from engine mods.

Unless the cvs are playing up , leave them alone. They are stronger than the hilux versions.
I used a kit from Terrain Tamer for my swivel hubs (Don Kyatt in AKL) only a few things different due to being a Jap import.
Thats the axle seal in the housing. Otherwise everything else fitted fine.

If you feel you have cooked the oil, change it. Its pretty cheap compared to an engine rebuild.
