Hi Pesty

Have no idea about your Luxie but when you have a 60 series why go backwards. love the photo but you could have put a big load on it. We moved from Gympie to Winton and on the last load couldn't fit hieght wise under the awning at Augathella roadhouse and the 60 handled it beautifully (can't go past the the HT12). Went bu8sh recently and a mates Turbo Surf (read Hilux) just could not cut it. Look forward to swapping hints.

You just concentrate on getting that rubber band wound up extra tight if you think a nissan is going to get to the old country and back in a long weekend. Allow plenty of time there for winding to get home.

Repair of the pressure relief valve only requires you to remove the oil cooler assembly and not the motor....not an overly difficult job from memory.....

Thanks B3 i removed the oil filter and located the 2 relief valve heads and removed them and the pistons dont think these were replaced at rebuild.
Have you had any exp. with them do you need a new oil cooler body or do they bore them out

Hi again Pesty

Yes, I had to do mine not long after I bought it (second hand) about 8 years ago. I found that the spring assembly was all gunked up so seems the previous owner hadn't been very good with oil changes, etc.
The Toyota manual says that if you coat the valve with engine oil then it should fall smoothly into the housing under its own weight (hold oil filter bracket upside down for test). If it doesn't they recommend replacing valve and/or oil filter bracket.
Hope this fixes it! My pressure problem now is due to excessive blow past the pistons....am getting a rebuilt motor on Friday...

Ben
