    Yes, each vehicle has it's weak points. On the Patrol, it's the actuation for the diff lock (if fitted) and to a much lesser extent the chain that drives the front wheels, on the cruiser it's the...
  3. Re: Have I become stupidly obsessed with a Land Cruiser 100 1HDFTE

    I firmly believe that there is very little to choose between a 105 cruiser and a Y61 patrol in terms of capability. They are truly very similar cars.
    Sure, the TD42 is probably not as good an engine...

    Re: 160L compressor for my vehicle

    I tried repairing one of these generic compressors once.

    If you strip it down, you will see that it is definitely designed to be a throw-away item.

    Re: Rated recovery points?

    With a head dimension of 15mm, I would think those bolts are more likely to be M10 than M12 although either is possible.

    Let's assume M10. That gives a combined shear load at yield strength of...

    Re: Recovery points for Hilux

    Rated to do what?
    If that bolt is an M12 grade 10.9, it will take 14.5 tons to shear it. More likely the hitch tube will fail.

    However, these bolts are normally M16 or M20. An M16 grade 8.8 bolt...
