Giant's 84 hj60

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

Welcome to what I call the giant shit heap. A 84 hj60 long wheel base high roof landcruiser.

I am seriously pondering the metal state of the last owner. found a patch of bog covering perfect steel no rust, no dents. Nothing.

Well iv decided what direction this project is going in. Off road. Slowly chewing though the parts list. 2inch anti inversion shackles with longer shocks and 35s for a start.

Made some progress on the rust. All the small holes have been filled. Took a wire wheel to them rust killed filled with fibre glass and hit with some primer.

Done wheel bearings today. 

What a shit fight. Last owner tightened the ever living shit out of the lug nuts. Que blow torch and my big power bar.

 

At some point a seal has failed to do just that. Found a bit of water sitting in the hub.

So if been a bit slack lately new job moving house and what not so the 60 has just been used as a daily with not much else.

I have decided where this is going.

Swap the 2h anchor out for a 6BD1T(pretty much a Cummins 6bt) intercool and up boost and fuel. Goal is 180whp.160hp flywheel is stock

Re gear the diffs to suit 35s and lock the rear(auto locker) Currently on 32s.

Ute chop is a maybe.
