I have been waiting for my mate to mod the new diffs so I can put them in.  Since he now has a new job and can do them at work for me I will finally be able to use the LJ again :D I have been too busy to do it myself.

He also will be making the new rear spring mounts so I can fit the new springs and new shock mounts. He will be making me a new tube bar for the front, New roll cage ( approved), sliders anfd fuel tank protector.  So hopefully will have it up and running again.  The main reason I haven't used it is because I broke a front axle last time I took it out and the steering was downright dangerous.  That will be fixed when the new diffs go in.  Plus am waiting on my lock rite to turn up.  Was only posted yesterday via airfreight.

Not anymore :(   Have to pay for supplies and steel.  Welding gas and wire, grinding wheels etc.  Will do for beer and rum but will take about three to four months.

Well I am sick of waiting for my Suzi to get done so I thought I would mod the Cruiser up a bit while I was waiting.

Picked up a brand new rear airlocker for it today real cheap.:D  :D

When I get some spare time I will fit it and fit the PTO winch too.

Rear air locker is in .  PTO winch is going on next weekend.

Then I might even go on a run.  The LJ is a few months away from being ready now that I have decicded to put the new engine in it.  But look out when it comes back.

Thanks for that post Sam.  I have all the bits ( plus many extra's) for LJ it's just a matter of getting the time to fit them all  the car.  I will keep them in mind when I am chasing bits though.

I did get  these plates for a reason.   They will actually pay for themselves.

Since the LJ will be thirty years old next year I can put it on club rego for about $170 a year instead of $600 :D BUT they sting you an extra $40 a year for number plate rental if you don't have your own.

Nope.  You just need a car to be over thirty years old, be a financial member of a car club and have a letter from the club president confirming that the car is over thirty years old.

You are limited to taking the car to and from club events, 15km within base for test drive and allowed to take it to and from being repaired.  I think these are right  but would have to check for sure.

Quick up date.

Red LJ has had datsun engine removed ( anybody need a boat anchor)
660cc turbo intercooled injected motor will be in by Australia day.

Will post some pics soon.  

Major hassles have been had to throw away old master cylinder and fit sierra one. 110mm shorter than the old one. Two days work to do properly.

Sump has to be modified or I will only get about 5mm of up travel :roll:

Steering has to be put back to standard.  Found out why I got so much bump steer, when they did the original mod they did some pretty dodgy stuff to the steering.  Will be put back to factory configuration.

Going to pick up my LJ20 finally.  Very happy about this. :D

Cruiser has PTO winch mounted in new arb bull bar. Fitted PTO unit to gearbox but there was no PTO gear inside transfer case. :roll: More money. only $45 for the gear but around $250 to fit it.  Diff lock is sweet

Otherr LJ50 is still sitting there awaiting work.( money,time etc)

Just scored a quaife locking diff for the rear of the LJ.  Got it for half the price of a new one.  Now I can run the lock rite in the front and this one in the back.

After running down to Sydney and back I realised the 2H motor may be a great motor but it is a real slug.

So rang around today and ordered this for it .



ATX turbo kit :D

50% power and torque increase.

At least when I tow cars on the freeway I may be able to do 110kph instead of 20kph

be very careful fitting a turbo to a 2H, have personal experience with a like vehicle which continually overheated. radiator cleaned repeatedly eventually replaced, water pump replaced, thermostats changed weekly, head on and off, head gaskets replaced/modified, head modified. exhaust and turbo were ceramic coated to reduce under bonnet temps.

end of the day, it still overheated. we were at a loss as to why. left that employer shortly after so still don't know what eventuated.

Thank Yodi I was hoping you where going to reply. :D Thanks for the warning.

Will organise a bigger radiator now before it goes in.  They say you need to put a 10mm spacer under the back of the bonnet to help let some heat out.  Will also make some sheet metal strips around the edge of the radaitor to help force air in.  Will be moving the spotlights and moving the number plate to the side.

Have already added more oil to viscous fan ( sounds like a plane now) but that only helps under 40 kph anyway.

ahhh, all warm and fuzzy......

didn't have to start a thrad just for my opinion :D

probably too late now, did you price a second hand 12HD motor??

a factory turbo 2H. they have different cranks, pistons, think bearings, oh and best bit, direct injection ( or maybe that's a later motor, second thinking now?? ) . anyhow, these don't have the overheating problems that the 2H's have.

guessing the turbo kit would be around 5k , a 12HD motor i guess could be around that figure ( not recon, 2nd hand )

the motors will outlast your truck ( old 2H too if stays cool ) 8)
