Hey guys,
Just about to fit my twine system into the new prado (new for me) and can't work out where exactly it is supposed to go.
Its a 01 TD with dual batteries and a winch so space under the bonnet and bullbar is very limited. I am thinking the pump can go up on the drivers side at the back but the heat exchange is a bit tight up there.
Any help appreciated.

I've got my Helton heat exchanger mounted on the passenger side on the front wheel arch(behind the Main Battery & fuse box). This also puts it close to the heater hoses.

Thinking of getting Helton myself, and using with bilge pump/shower head.
How do you find the exchanger and which model did you use? On Prado I assume

The Helton has worked great, Just make sure that when you do up the hose connections on the Heat Exchanger that you use good quality hose clamps and do them extra tight. I've had one of the heater hoses with a slow leak, and at easter one of the water hoses blew off. No damge, just the engine bay got a bit of a wash. I've just upgraded to one of the Shurflo pumps, but previously was using a marine bilge pump. I got mine from a marine shop, its rated at 500GPH and cost about $35. The model I picked was the one that has all of the connections at the one end. Yes its on a 90 series TD Prado.

I have some pics posted on the Overlander forum of my setup

Tim ,do a business search on this site as they are advertisers & email them direct as they should be able to send you directions on where to fit it as they did for the Patrol, not much room in them either.
