Is their any difference between the turbo diesel motors in the Hj60 series of the imported models compared to the factory imported ones?

Lee Im looking at imported landcruisers from Japan and I think most or all of them are 24volt systems although the bulbs,stereo are still 12v.I think its just the starter and alternator are 24v.Ive been told that Aust is the only country where toyota diesels are all 12v.Apart from that they are all 12HT motors

Lee my files make no mention of a 12HD .There is a 1HD-T which appears to supercede a 12HT in Australia.The 1HD-T is similar to the 1HZ because it has the same cap of 4163cc and is SOHC and was imported 90-95.
Try looking at these sites www.off-road.com/tlc and if it doesnt work just put LAND CRUISER FAQ into google also Brians foreign toyota landcruiser page at www.brian894x4.com
Is yours a Jap import?

Gday
I can help you here. I just imported an 1988 HJ61 from Japan. It is fully 24V....everywhere, bulbs, stereo, even the factory self-powered sub woofer!! I think you will find that any Japanese spec cruiser will differ from an Aus spec Cruiser of same year/model, particularly with options available like lockers and air ride seats, paint jobs etc, but I could be wrong... anyways HTH..

Advice to you is to get one. It is an outstanding vehicle in all aspects.

We were discussing engine differences but apart from the electrical issues and maybe anti pollution stuff a 12ht is a 12ht. In that model they only use one manual g/box,a H55T and 2 diffs ,open and lsd and the ratios are all 3.7O and the size is 9.5in I think. The urls I posted earlier have an engine/axle/transmission decoder so you can check.
