Not one of those rather scarce short wheelbase land cruisers is it?

Phill.

Well done Steve,

You get Wild-Eye's fiver.

Yep, Hilux Surf, 3rd Gen, A combo of the Hilux, and the Land Cruiser Colorado. 358,000kms, looks and drives beautifully.

Paul.

Funny ol' thing, seen one in Truro yesterday and thought that was a nice looking motor.

Oddly enough Phill, I got offered use of a Land Cruiser 75, 4.6L. The guy is a friend of my Dad, and although he would not sell, he said I could use it when I wished. it was a little broken, top gear had failed and gone through the side of the casing, but it was still driveable!

Paul.

Having returned home from the rally last weekend, I thought I'd check and top up the overdrive oil ahead of this weekends trip out. Upon unscrewing the level plug, the thread came out with it... this is despite having a special "sawn off" spanner for this job so that the plug cannot be over tightened. Highly irritating but I guess it had just worn out..

I also found the end float to be 0.023" which seemed excessive - there is no given figure for this, so long as it has some it's OK...

I set up a pipe on the vacuum cleaner so that I could drill and tap the casing to the next size up for both fill and drain plug, the drain was OK but I decided to do the same repair on that to avoid the same problem later on. The next nearest size was M16 and I used the 2.00mm coarse pitch. Not being able to get M16 course plugs, I converted the lathe for metric screw cutting and made my own, the fill plug having a dipstick made too.

Having tackled the initial problem, I looked at the (to me) excessive end float - I wasn't able to track down the correct thrust race when I rebuilt the overdrive but did find one about a year later to put in stock - now fitted with new ground spacers either side, I also re-fitted the original circlip. Not good practice, but the new ones sold with rebuild kits are slightly narrower than the originals and that was contributing to the excessive end float.

Now reduced to a sensible 0.008" end float

The thread stripping was really a blessing in disguise, in the course of the job I found the mainshaft nut had loosened off a turn in the gearbox because the lockwasher had sheared- a very common fault. If you take an old LT76 apart you're lucky if you find an intact lock washer.. I'll check this about every 10k miles going forward.

Anyway, the overdrive is now re-fitted and working well. A little quieter, less leaky and the clunk on taking up drive is gone.
