Question about 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser
Vehicle is a 1978 Toyota Landcruiser BJ40 Diesel (VIN BJ40018770) with Hino B diesel engine and 12 volt system. This was either made in South America or imported there. I need a new 12 volt alternator and cannot locate a source. As an alternative, I would consider a rebuilt alternator or a facility that would rebuild mine. The alternator has the vacuum pump on the aft end of the shaft.
Many of these were imported to Canada but they have 24 volt electrical systems.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Presuming it is swinging (starter turning engine) and the
glow plugs are working well and diesel is clean, the other alternatives are a
drop in fuel pressure through the injectors which is necessary to ignite the
diesel, or engine compression. If the compression is too low the diesel will
not ignite. Test the injectors and
compression across al cylinders. Being a turbo the compression si already lowered and the slightest drop will have an effect. Happy hunting.
