Hi all .
Ok all you owners of Cruisers I have crossed the Line My Nissan 1986 Mq has been retired ,after 20 years
I purchased a LANDCRUISER 1994-5 4.2 Diesel 80 SER Model HZJ8 1HZ & it is now will become my fishing & travelling Truck & I will move all my gear over as the Nissan is still a great truck but it has a body that gets more fibre Glass every 3 months & the rust is winning After years on the beach,so of to the farm and off the road

The questions are on the Vin plate does the Letters behind 80 ( SER ) mean Series or the Letters mean something else & what do they mean .
Does this Model ,Have a Limited Slipped Diff the Axel Type is a H150FK295.
It Has new 33 x 12.5 Tires,2 inch Lift kit fitted I have also have Fitted a Heavy Duty CouplerTec Electronic Rust Proofing, & I will get the chassis sprayed.
Do you advise I fit a Turbo as the old Nissan 3.3 was a Turbo

Hi,

First up........ What the heck is a toyato??

Depending on your point of view, some will say you have gone to the dark side....... others will welcome your enlightenment LOL.

Q1, possibly .... I've not looked at mine.
Q2, Yes and No (If you're a Nissan driver LOL)
Q3, Good if you do a lot of beach driving.
Q4, Hell yes, 1HZ is a SLUG on anything other than flat ground with a STRONG tail wind. How many KM on the engine??
Q5, can't answer this (coz I'm not learned)
Put new seats in it, no mention if standard or GXL, fit an Engel in between the front seats, fit a Waeco where the second row seats were, Cooper tyres on the front...BFG's on the back and a Mickey Thompson MT as a spare. Sorry.... got carried away.

More Sensible information can (possibly) be found on these two sites.

Off Road 80's

or

LCOOL

Enjoy.
Cheers,
Wayne.

Are you sure thats the axle no, sounds like the g/box code ie H150.Strong box.
Yes, you will have a LSD but to check there should be a sticker at the rear fill plug.
A turbo will change the drivability of the vehicle enormousily but hwo many kms, does it use oil, when were the pump and injectors done, valves shimmed etc.Make sure everything is in perfect condition before bolting on a turbo.Then be prepared for sore cheeks.......from smiling so much.

i don't know Trevor, i've never met every person that visits this site so can't say what they do for a living or how they have spent their lives or what vehicles they have been involved with. what i do know is that if he would like another forum to "ALSO" visit which he might not of been previously aware of due to his pevious vehicle not being a Toyota, then i suggest he looks into the LCOOL forum as another site well worth visiting.

Even if your vehicle nominally has a LSD it will be useless unless it was rebuilt very recently. They only last 20 - 30,000 km and then become just an open dif. One of the things that Toyota have never bothered to fix. Nissan and Mitsubishi have excellent LSD that last but not Toyota.

Fitting a dif lock is the best fix.

I have a 94 1Hz troopy and a 100 SER factory TD. The difference in performance is dramatic but the troopy gets everywhere eventually. Have the 1Hz checked carefully before fitting a turbo as a tired one will die quickly with a turbo. If it is in good condition, compression etc then many of the aftermarket turbo kits seem to work well. Just keep the max boost down.

The LCOOL site is a great source of info.

Hello CLC
I have just done the same as you and moved over to the dark side having owed mainly Nissans, but decided to change to an 80series which should suit our purpose better. I have just fitted suspension and tyres and as others have said the rear limited slip is useless, so have just installed a part time kit and front Lokka which works well. You will also find, as I did, that they are gutless so I have just ordered a Denco turbo kit which should fix that problem. You will have to update your profile so I can keep an eye out for you around the coast.
