Hi guys,

Rang one of the local 4wd wreckers about a 80 series Cruiser with a 1hd-ft engine, sold unfortunately but he had a had a 1hz-t out of an import with supposedly low k's. His story was that the 1hd-ft engines were a lot more susceptable to breaking timing belts. Hadn't heard this one myself---but. Yes the thought crossed my mind that what he had to sell may have played a part but thats probably just my suspicious mind lol. Anyone had or heard of this ???

Cheers ob

No such factory engine as a 1hz-t. It would be a aftermarket Turbocharger. Or it could be a 1hd that he has miss-identified.

Keeping looking for a 1hd-ft engine. Try doing a google search as some of the wreckers etc have reasonable web sites theses days

Mate,
I know this isn't any use to you but I just had to post the link Toyota Diesel

Wack this in your 60 or 80 series for some get up and go, pity you'd probably spend 4 times this much to get it running!

Which is probably why I said, "you'd probably spend 4 times this much to get it running!"

Ok, so he offered an imported 1HD-T instead of a 1HD-FT.
Beware of imported Landcruiser TDs - they are usually 24 volt, so the extras such as the preheat elements/ glow plugs are going to need changing and sorting. You need to ask about this.

The 1HD-T was also the engine with the infamous Big End Bearing problems. For peace of mind, I'd be putting in new big ends before installing the motor. And never believe the "low kilometre" claims with imports.

Yeah thanks Phil he did say no electrics with motor and thats probably why. I have heard of big end dramas with these engines so they certainly wouldn't be my first choice. The 1HD-FT would by my prefered engine but they appear to be thin on the ground and fairly pricey. I would rather not go with the later 1HD-FTE although the two people that have them 1BIL and a mate have had a good run so far but neither have high k's. BIL's is in a 100 series about 80000 k's I think and the mates is a 79 series and about 65000.Also more wiring to do to fit

Thanks ob

Gudday ob,
Somerville 4wd wreckers in Somerville 3190 has a 1hdt out of an 80 series for sale-not sure how much, but apparently it was rebuilt 15000k's ago. Saw the car, all he's done is push it into a tree side on, so no damage to running gear, give him a call.
