  1. My 1995 Landcruiser 4.5L petrol overdrive light started flashing and the fuel tank warning light came on. Also had a loss of power and over heating. The way to fix this is; 1. Disconnect the positive battery terminal for 30 minutes. 2. Reconnect the terminal. Now it should be OK. I had this problem and by doing the above, it fixed everything.
  2. Hey guys, I'm new here so let me know when I've done something wrong So my problem is that the overdrive light in my toyota hilux surf 2.4 turbodiesel 1992 is flashing after about 30 min of driving. when this happens, the car is really slow going forward, the ram's are going up really slow even when I'm going into the kickdown there is no change or shifting. When I'm in the first gear it's the same, it goes really slow, so doesn't matter if it's in drive or low gear. Sometimes if I turn of the car for 10 min it works again on about 80% of power Even in the morning my car is struggling to go up the ramp in the basement. I've been to 3 mechanics yet, nobody knows really what it could be, anybody help or an idea 💡
  3. 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 transfer case I just got with the FJ60 4 speed gearbox that's got the Fairey overdrive built into the transfer case. WILL that transfer case with integrated Fairey Overdrive from the 4 speed gear box go onto my 5 speed gearbox? if so, is there anything special that will need to be done? What needs to be changed/modified if anything? Anything else I need to know? Thanks Kymbo
  4. 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% overdrive, far better, quieter and stronger than the older fairey units. I cant get an answer from GRO because they refuse to answer if it will fit a Landcruiser as "we dont deal with them, just Landrover vehicles". One would think they would investigate to add another good strong market to their product line. Thank you in advance for any responses. Kymbo.
  5. G'day all. Just got hold of a 1984 SR5 Xtracab trayback ute. It's stock standard motor as I can see with a 3YC in it and only 232,000 k's. It's also got overdrive in a auto gearbox. Just wondering if anybody could point me to some specs about the car, such as the gearbox type etc. I am happy with it but it revs like mad when cold so must be the auto choke. Any way I can disconnect it? It came with wheels of a Ford territory and 17" low profile tyres. Real heavy to steer. I am putting the original rims back on with standard tyres. That should improve the steering and economy. Does anyone know how the economy is on one of these? How many k's per liter etc? Also it has no airconditioning so I will be looking at putting that on as well. Any idea on a price? And it's got 'armstrong' steering so I want to put on power steering. Is it a big job to do? Anyway, thanks for the great forum and I'll be in touch soon with some pictures. This will be my daily ride and I won't be hotting it up or nothing ;-)
