    Thermo fan efficiency

    Not sure how they would fit but a lot of guys doing conversions use falcon twin thermos and shroud (I think it is AU falcon or possibly EF) cheap from wreckers or on ebay.

    Wanted: Mythical Rear Sump

    Digital instrument cluster

    I am building a hilux with a 1ux and a few other bits and pieces and as mine was originally a diesel I need to change the original tacho to read the 1uz signal. I am also using a gearbox with an electronic signal so I also have to change out the speedo to an electronic one instead of cable...

    Have I got it right

    I have wired up the relays pretty much as described in my initial post, I think the only thing I changed was pins 87 and 87A on the fuel pump relay and it starts and stops all on the hilux key the way it is supposed to.

    New 1uz hilux guy from tassie.

    I am sorting out the wiring at the moment. I am going to make up my own mounts but mine will be differant to yours as mine will all be sitting on a gq patrol chassis so I get coil spings on all for corners as well as bullet proof drivelines - I am also using the 4.2L petrol gearbox. Cheers...

    Have I got it right

    Haynes and Gregory's are both workshop manuals and are about $50-60au. I have bought one for just about every car I have owned. Great for just knowing the order of dismantling and reassemble parts as well as torque specs etc. I am not sure how detailed the wiring diagrams are though for 1UZ's.

    Have I got it right

    HAHA, my wife is due to drop in the next few weeks so I don't have to worry about the whole short skirts and no nickers issue if I ever get the engine going. I was thinking of getting a Gregories/haynes manual for a soarer which should have some more info on wiring diagrams but will check them...

    Have I got it right

    My ecu number is 89661-24220 and I think it is out of a 92 or 94 soarer. I searched and it looks like the ecu is from 91-94 soarers. I have been using the 1992 Lexus sc400 diagram and most I the wire colours and locations seem to be the same. Is there a better diagram I should be using? I...
