Re: hdj81 cruiser build

Looks good matey.

I'm wanting to redesign my sliders and have them currently running flat along the sills with 50x50 box and braced back to the chassis. Can you show me yours how yours sit near / against the sill and avoid the seam?

Cheers

Re: Napoleon hill

Our club drove through there last Christmas /New Years. Great trip. (Thanks Smurf) Give the local farmer a call to Guage the river level as you need to drive through it at some point. Unless you get to the end and then just come back. . Some more info. Napoleon Hil https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2...

Solution: Chop the plug off and hard solder the motor to the loom. W...

Re: 1HDT Big End Bearing Shell Replacement

Cheers for the advice and parts guys. Any idea on how long the ACL bearing shells should last? Change again after another 300,000km or every 100,000km ?

It's all done and is a bit quieter. Was fairly straight forward, just bloody messy lying under the truck getting them all in.

Re: Improving the TD27t

Let it breath. The most significant difference to mine was making a 3 inch expansion chamber from the turbo, that reduces down to a 2.5inch straight through exhaust. The intake also needs a little help and so open it up a little. The standard airbox isn't really good enough. If you're thinking of do...

Re: engine and auto swap

I haven't tried it myself, but the engine, trans and transfer all together is such a large object, I doubt you could easily slide it out in one go. The weight distribution would be terrible and angle you would need to tilt it making it almost impossible to get out in one go.

Re: Landcruiser swivel housing bolts

Have just taken the nuts off the studs and even the studs are loose. When you tighten the nuts it may seem to have fixed the problem, but check the studs also. They have a star shaped end which a 9mm socket seems to fit nicely. Not sure if there is a special socket for it. Now time to drill and easy...

Landcruiser swivel housing bolts

After a bit of a shock finding a broken stud, this is a warning for all cruiser owners.

Please check these as they are known for loosening and then snapping the studs. One cruiser owner only had one left.
Hate to think of the consequences.

Check them now!

Cheers for the info and offers guys.

I think I've found what I was looking for. The below information mentions to match the bearing numbers against the crank shaft and connecting rod numbers.
Do the bearing kits all have numbered bearings?
