  1. I have a HJ60 Landcruiser, turbo intercooled 2H, 5 speed gear box. Now I have just acquired an FJ60, 2F 4 speed but it has a transfer case on it that has an Integrated Fairey overdrive in it. The only Fairey overdrives I had seen prior to this were the type that was used in landrovers, the type that the separate Fairey overdrive unit bolted onto the back of the Landcruiser transfer case and after changing some drive components drove from there off the gearbox output shaft. What I would like to do is this: Take the existing transfer case from the 5 speed box on my HJ60 and swap it for the trans
  2. Gday everyone. I have a question about the Fairey Overdrive units that were fitted to the 60 series Landcruisers, also previous model Landcruisers of co****. I am told that that fairey Overdrive unit that was used is exactly the same as the unit as used in all the Landrovers, well the info I got was "same used right through to 1985ish". Now the research I have done tells me this is right, but I cant get a definative answer. Why Im asking is that there is a stronger version of an overdrive now available, Global Roamer Overdrive, formerly 'Roverdrive'. This unit is acclaimed to be 28% overdri
  3. Yeah I hear ya Mark. I used to rebuild engines and build the occasional racing engine so I know the internals and how they work very well. The only reason I didnt do my 2H was I now have a severe back injury and just cant do the heavy stuff. My engine has amazing oil pressure and It's been running without any other issues since begining of '07. It could just be a bit of gasket sealer (if they used any) that has blocked that particular oil outlet, Im not sure but this following week I will be going in to speak with the boss of that place and if I get no joy will speak with professional mechanic
  4. G'day. Well I am back and with a solution of sorts. Sorry it's been a while, yes the oil is pumped up under pressure I finaly discovered, but for some reason not on my engine, my next fight here is with City Dismantlers of Gepps Cross Adelaide, they did the entire engine full recondition in late '06 and Ive replaced now 4 alternators in that time due to same reasons, the vacuum pump has died. The original went south 7 months after I had the engine done, replaced with a "new" 1 from City Dis, 10 months after in Mt Isa that died, City Dis wouldnt send a new unit without my reciept even though I
  5. Just a quick update.. I called around, Toyota dealership, diesel engine business and Im still in the dark about how the oil reaches the vacuum pump, the gregories book is useless, gives info on rebuilding but no explaination. The Toyota place (very popular here) couldnt tell me, they said they cant even recall anyone ever having a problem with one so they couldnt really tell me, but, they will try to find out. The diesel engine place, again, very good reputation, 1 guy said it was drawn up from vacuum, he said its a vane pump (which I knew) and that it actually pumps oil up into and out of the
  6. Cheer's mate, no probs with how you got the info. I did get somewhere today though, this may be good for anyone else that reads this that needs to know the same thing. The alternator I picked up today did have the original oil lines on them and I now know what oil line goes where. The oil feed into the alternator (conects to the cast alloy alternator housing) comes from the small connector on the engine block, as I thought it would be, it made sense. I'll be looking tomorrow at mine to check if the auto sparky did it the right way. Re the having to add a vacuum pump on the japanese comercials.
  7. G'day everyone, Kymbo here from South Australia. Im 50 sumthin', My "rig" (for want of a better term) consists of a 1984 Toyota Landcruiser (nicknamed "Stompy" by my Daughter and it stuck), intercooled turbo diesel 2H (yep, it's a 2H, it wont get me there fast, but it will get me there), 5 speed manual, A/C, fully fitted out with the usual bull bar, roof rack, dual batteries, dual fuel tanks (which combined hold 200 litres of diesel), dual spare wheels on a custom wheelrack designed by myself, dual snorkles (yep a Landcruiser with dual Safari Snorkles), dual cup holders..hhmmm, maybe Ive got a
  8. Cheer's Mark. Thanks for the reply, I really do appreciate it and any more also.. It is clear that it ran dry..lol, I was horrified when I opened it and saw the inside of the vac pump. When the auto electrician fitted the new alternator he told me he also fitted new rubber hoses to the oil supply line fittings that connect both to the alternator (oil feed in) and engine block ins and outs, as the drain back just pushes on and is hose clamped. I am going to remove both today and check they havent started to come appart inside, I know this can and does happen, especialy if he used the wrong type
  9. G'day everyone. I have a landcruiser, HJ60, 2H diesel, 5 speed, great vehicle. A couple years ago while traveling around I needed to have the alternator replaced with a newbie, all great. These alternators if you weren't aware of have a vacuum pump mounted at the back thats driven by the alternator shaft. Well out of the blue the vacuum pump started to fail and within no time I had nil vacuum for brakes/clutch. The pump was removed from the alternator and I discovered to my shock it was as dry as the preverbial, when it should have had oil in it as its fed by an oil line from the motor and the
