    @smokin'joe Toyota service requirements state that the big and mains get done every 100000kms, in all 1hz, 1hd-t, 1hd-ft and 1hd-fte motors just plug a oil gauge in run it back into the cab and watch it for a few weeks. No better data logging than eye balling a gauge every time your in it. or whip the sump and pull a few mains and big ends for a wee look. if it's looking shaky bearing roll !
  4. with places like https://www.rockauto.com/ and a bit of waiting your gonna come out on top with new disks just about every time. As a apprentice we would take hand full's of vt-vz commo disks down the road to the the shop with the brake lathe and exchange them out for ones hanging on the wall that were all done. It was kind of ok as the economies of scale worked... but new disks in this corner.

    yea it's a good one. My grandad had 44 gallon drums on the orchard. Old used oil went in and if it was left long enough the heavy stuff falls out of suspension In a old tractor just after WW2 scooping the good oil in the top of the drum and putting it back in the tractor was the only thing to do. Driven by money of lack there of.

    I like this topic.. I replaced a shit load in ozz when I worked their at a 4x4 shop We tried all sorts of stuff to make them hold together. dawes valve to take the boost control away from the ECU add more oil shorten the dip stick to increase sump capacity Block the god awful EGR off Replace MAF to stop the over fuel issue. nice big turbo back exhaust If you drove one with a boost gauge and pyro you might go ok and have no issues. but they still went bang. Small motor big truck... boy sent to do a mans job kinda deal.
  9. how many thou cam lift?
  10. Actually.. That's exactly right. And something I never thought of. Shit
  11. haha I'm sure you know about the Jeen's bug that was built and sold by Marco a while back ? http://fueltank.cc/blog/1974-jeans-beetle Thing is dope. Love the cosmic rims. Thats what id build if I find another late model standard
  12. This is just a chat question not i'm doing it tomorrow kinda deal. We have seen VW bug's with narrowed front ends. You can take a abritory inch or 2 or you can go full bat shit crazy 10-14" Narrow. As far as you can before the Shock mounts rub the body. Where do we with our rules draw the line? IS there a % of track front to back that you must stay within ? Or is it just a matter of judgement on the certifier ? cheers Scott.
