Front coil spring specs needed

Can anyone tell me or point me in the right direction. I need to know the original front coil spring specs for a pre 9/91 80 series.
i.e. the free/uncompressed, length number of coils and wire size?

Lift springs needed.

Anyone know where I can buy springs for a 6" lift to fit an 80 series. After some heavy duty for towing.
Mine have sagged over time and are also very soft.
Want to go to a harder spring.

Gasket set for 1HDT engine wanted

My turbo packed a sad some time ago and went through the engine. I picked up a second hand engine for it which got me back on the road. Decided to strip down the old engine to see what the damage was. All I have found wrong is a few bits of turbo blade imbeded in No1 piston. There is no sign of any ...

have you priced a new oil pump? No. I don't even know where to get one. I would also assume it would have been replaced when the engine was rebuilt. Thought if I could at least test it and then be able to rule that out as being the cause of the failure. Don't necessarily want to put a new one in th...

Realistically you are better off rebuilding/putting a 1hdft with a Gturbo and running 30psi daily. It's bolt in job, no cert needed. Do it over a weekend or two rather than a year of weekends waiting for parts from america with the 6.5. I put off buying a gturbo for years and prices have gone up a l...
