How strong is the new 70 series Troopy 5 seater Gearbox?
I know there were some issues with the previous model, and I Woild like to know if this box is ok. And can it take a power up via a chipset?
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

Its the same engine as the LC200 but my understanding is that they didnt put the twin turbo and intercooler on the 70 series as the manual gearbox could not handle the extra power - thus the 70 series was powered down due to the manual gearbox.

Im guessing there could be other reasons the 79 is detuned besides gearbox

one being with the 7.5 inch splitties and general truck handling the 200 seies motor would be waaaay to much for the averadge rock ape like me to drive around a minesite.

the previos 79 was de tuned from the 100 series spec as well

I pulled a gearbox out of a V8 troopy today as it happens, when I drained the transfer case, I got about 1 cup of black water out it, needless to say the transfer was F@#$%^, then I drained the Gearbox it took over an hour and it still has what ever it was in it, you could only describe it as honey mixed with a clay type mud.

We haven't pulled it down yet but it seems ok, we will see, it looks like the oil transferred itself to the gearbox as it was well over full, it had definitely been in water, but all the breathers and rubber boots were intact.

If that gearbox is ok then I would definitely say they are as strong as an OX.

Cheers Steve.

The H150 and H151 have been the strongest gearboxes over many years. Used first in the 80series, and then in the TD and petrol LandCruisers after that.

Interestingly, Toyota didn't offer a manual TTD 200series, but I'd be surprised if the extra power with that box would be an issue.
