Re: R50 Terrano auto issue.

I had a 130 surf that did that, first start of the day, the colder the day the longer it took, really cold days could be 10+ minutes of driving. Turn it off then start again while still warm it was fine.

Re: Pursuit of low mount winch happiness

Have seen a few pics of people pushing air into the winch gearbox to keep water out I'll get it all set up and submerge it and then strip it and look for any water in it its more for when winch is hot and it goes into cold water, same as what you would do jumping into cold water, an instant suck in...

Re: 750 16 AT tyres wanted

235 85 16 tires should fit on a rim that fits a 750x16 , same size tire essentially just a bit wider Should bolt straight on but they will have a more positive offset and essentially they are only a 29" tyre I've mentioned the 235 85 to him but I think he wants 'the old style look' that the 75...

Re: 750 16 AT tyres wanted

Yeah he's hoping to come across some of those ones people are replacing.
I've checked TM a few times but no ATs.
I don't use FB but he might, I'll tell him.

Would those wheels you have fit a 1987 hilux? Stud pattern, off set etc.
What you want for them? Text me if you want.

Cheers

750 16 AT tyres wanted

anyone have any 750 16 all terrain tyres they don't want? or similar size.
my brother in-law is after some for his 1987 hilux. he has some old Firestone SAT but wants some all terrains. and he is in wellington but might look anywhere at right price.

Re: New Engine for Prado

are you meaning the 3.4 v6? 5vz-fe.

and which model prado? 70 with the 3zr-fe? 90 with the 3rz-fe? or 120 with the 3rz-fe or 3tr-fe? might not make any difference but might do.

Re: Certified Self Contained?

Either the rules have changed or the 'usable inside' rule is ignored because they just used a portable toilet in a toilet tent and that passed certification.
It was secured for traveling.

Simple to do, my parents had a van before their motor home.

A tank for holding grey water from the sink, a chemical toilet.

Be no different for a 4wd.

Re: Kzj78 fuel capacity.

Some vehicles do over 100 km with light on.
Gauges aren't always correct.
Any dents in tank?

When it's low drain what's left and measure it then put back in and fill up.
Who knows, that site may be wrong, but I've found it right for things.

I haven't got 78 so I don't know.
