Re: 1kz new injector pump seals now wont start or idle

i had this when i put the boost compensator on my truck. I the throttle cable bracket was out a few splines and would only run at "full throttle" which was in fact idle. Take it off and move it so that what you are now getting as full throttle is idle

Re: Prado - Southland Vehicle Project

We run duratrac on all our utes at work as an aggressive MT. get about 70,000km out of them and they are great on the road. Heaps more road (and off road of course) grip than the standard road tyres that come on the utes when new.

Love them

Re: What's involved in drilling perches to move front diff?

If you are still to go for a cert you will probably want to do RUF and cross over now as you will certainly want to do it at some stage and no point getting a cert more than once. It is better but you don't HAVE to do it. Moving the axle forward and trimming the guards/body should get the 35's fitti...

Re: What's involved in drilling perches to move front diff?

I'm all for the 35s if you want them. And as much as I like rears up front and crossover you can make 35s fit just fine without it if you move the axle and have a body lift or even better trim the guards and smash the shit out of the wheel arch. If you need a Cert anyway then go rears up front. If y...

Re: What's involved in drilling perches to move front diff?

Why do you want to go higher? Will tha 6 inch lift your suspension will probably already be stiff as buggery and resetting and adding for an extra leaf will just make it firmer.

I assume you want to move the axle forward to stop the 35s from rubbing?

My mates safari needs the fuel cut solenoid changed. It cut out and I found it had blown the fuse to the fuel cut. It was a 5amp fuse rather than the 10 it was meant to have (fuses were all recently changed as a precaution after drowning it so hadn't been a 5 for long) I changed the fuse and got pow...

Re: 1994 mistral R20 rear drum brake problem

What happens if you pump the brakes? there will be a way of holding the shoes out when not braking whether it's a non return valve of sorts or mechanical adjuster at the brake itself. If this isn't working then you will need to pump the brakes a couple of times to get the shoes out. Pedal would stil...

Pinion play

A mate of mine has a hilux with a heap of play in the rear diff pinion. Play is up and down. The diff sounds fine, nice and smooth etc.

I was wondering if I should tighten the pinion nut to take up some of the play or if I should just leave it alone?
