Hi all , is this just a problem with the 80's series or is this a common thing for Toyota diesel motors. Every one on here pretty much saying change the bearings at 100k, for the 80's series, was this just a case of a bad batch of bearings when vehicle was manufactured or should this be some thing i should also be checking on my hilux (toyota's in general). I change oil & filters every 3k without fail and has been done since brand new, now has 280k on the clock. Excuse my ignorance but would rather spend $500 on getting bearings done now then some thing let go on next big trip and cost me 6k instead. Regards Steve M

Have a look on the Lcool site ,twas a bad batch used in 90 to 92 4.2 diesels ,, if it hasnt dropped its guts by 300,000 it wont drop it now because of the "bad" bearings.

Exactly what Alloy CT states
Toyota had 2 suppliers of bearings and one batch was a bad one. The only thing is toyota didn't record what bearings went into what engine.
It is only relevant to the 1hdt engines so if yours isn't turbo, you have nothing to worry about.
