If you have the 1Hz motor and R151F transmission then maybe yes!

Hi Phil,

With the troopy, just where do look to identify the gearbox type number? I know before I look that it will be the suspect one!!

The little plate on the firewall should have the transmission number written there.
AFAIK all 78series 1Hz had the R151F gearbox.
TD and petrol versions had the H-series boxes, and didn't have the problem.

Toyota should be able to tell you whether you have a problem. They have advised two of my mates to get it fixed over the past year.

From what I gather that is exactly the first signs of trouble---get it checked out as it is better to get it fixed now than in the "sticks"

Skippie

I your other post which has now been deleted there was a reference to a repairer who supplied one piece drive shaft replacement for the offending 2 piece. Could you cut at paste (or resubmit that info) if you have it avaialble??

Ian,

The genuine Toyota replacement part is the stronger component.

And on the other thread, Don Kyatt was mentioned. Adelaide Truck and 4wd Spares on Regency Rd may be able to help you out as they are a Don Kyatt outlet. Might also be one in Alice Springs.

Cheers
phil

g,day john
sorry i'm a bit slow with reply
the reason was that at the time
i thought two posts about the subject
wasn't the right thing to do
as the reply's were the same at the time
i asked if they could tell me how to delete one
unfortunately they took a while before they did
and i lost some very good information
if you contributed could you send it to me at skippie2094@msn.com
it looks as tho you think i should repeat the thread
i think i will,thanks for you're interest
