Question about 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser

2 Answers

I have a 75 series landcruiser and have put a second steering box in it to try and stop it from ducking and diving all over the place and its still doing the same but not as bad I have tried adjusting the screw on top of the steering box but cannot seem to find the right spot on where it should be as it seems to alter. How are these supposed to be adjusted

    Everything in the front end has been replaced and the steering box adjustment screw on both steering boxes that have been in it only move a quarter of a turn in either direction per adjustment with out taking it for a drive which then allows me to turn it further. this seems strange as with other steering bxes they are the same as what you have jsut told me

The caster is probably out of adjustment on the front axle. If the leaf springs are lifted, sagged out, or if the shackles are changed, the caster can be changed enough to make the car undriveable. Have an aligment shop check caster and add shims if necessary.

This may not be the steering box at all. It could be some other suspension component such as tie rod ends, drag link, pitman arm ect. Also be sure to check the rag joint on the steering shaft/column as waer in these can cause the ducking and diving you describe.Consult a repair manual for proper adjustment of your steering box. For most steering boxes I have had to adjust you loosen the jamnut and tighten the adjustment screw down until it hits the stop then back off half to three quarters and tighten the jamnut.

Troopy 75 Series landcruiser engine problem? hi


Check your air filter housing and the air intake piping. There is a reason why there are high level air intakes available for your vehicle, it is to stop water getting inside the combustion chambers. There is a possibility that your engine has sucked water into the induction system. It needs to be checked and cleaned as soon as possible. Water in the combustion chambers WILL kill your engine.

75 series landcruiser has no power


It is time to get the engine checked for the error code. The fault can be relative to many issues but primarily the fuel and firing timings. So also the compression and valve timing must be checked. Make sure that there is no brake jamming or faulty bearing , check all wheels for free movement.

Power steering


I still have one of these I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT LANDCRUISER ,SINCE 1980 SEVERAL 47S AND 75 S AS WELL as 2 ---60 series and I have never had to even think about rack and pinion etc BECAUSE DONT HAVE THEM ,so you can forget about those sort of answers as the people are guessing,rack and pinion steering didnt come into landcruisers until the 100 series. So that makes it simple for you ,the steering pump is useually the problem , in australia where I live they were ,the last tme I priced one, about $ 270 exchange. any one can unbolt ,and bolt a new one on.J ust be sure tocompletely drain and renew the fluid .
