Question about 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser

1 Answer

Having trouble removing the steering damper on a '96 toyota landcruiser. Tried a two-jaw puller. Torqued down on it so tight that it left an indention on the end of the bolt. No result. Is the fitting threaded? Any additional suggestions?

The bolt is rusted stuck on the bushing, you can try soaking it in penetrating oil for a few days, hitting it with hammer back and forth may work, it will destroy the bolt otherwise heat may work, i used to just torch them off and use new bolts

How do i use a 10 inch three jaw adjustable puller to remove a crankshaft damper on a 1997 2.4 liter D.O.H.C dodge stratus?

You don't. There is a special 3 jaw puller, specific for Chrysler products and a few other vehicles. I comes with three various length rods that slide into the hole in the end of the crankshaft and into the end of the puller bolt to obtain the correct length. The jaws of the puller have slots rather than hooks that slide onto machined surfaces in the inner part of the damper. These pullers are available for rent at auto parts stores. usually it's free, you just leave a deposit. trying to use a standard puller on the outside of the damper will damage the damper.

How do i re-set timing for Landcruiser Prado 1KZ engine. I changed the timing belt but the dash board indicator (T-Belt) is still on. How can i get this to come off and know that timing has been properly...

You have to pull the instrument cluster out of your vehicle. At the back of the cluster there are 2 screws that are close together, change the screws around. They are the only 2 screws together. Your timing is set by lining up the mark on the injection pump sprocket to the mark on the engine body. Same with the camshaft sprocket, the mark is at the top, and then aligning your two line marks on the timing belt (Toyota Belt) to these marks. Also I would suggest replacing your pulley. The Tensioner Pulley bolt should be torqued to 35 Nm. You need a vice with soft jaws to tension the tensioner and aligning the holes with a bit of coathanger wire. When you re install your tensioner you then pull out the wire releasing the tensioner. The tensioner bolts should be torqued to 12 - 13 Nm. Hope that helps you. PS - When you are removing your interior mouldings be careful as they are expensive to replace. When you remove your screws and bolts there are a number of clip systems that hold some of the mouldings in place.

Crankshaft removal

If it's turning the crank and not allowing you to loosen. It's torqued down pretty tight as well. If you have access to an air impact wrench (1/2') and a large socket, it should solve your problem. If you don't have access or enough room to put one in, take a socket and ratchet handle and "shock" it by hitting it with a mallet or hammer. Here's the kicker: it's most likely left-hand thread so it's righty loosey, lefty tighty... let me know how it goes...

Toyota landcruiser ignition switch

I am not 100% sure on toyota but most ignition switches you must remove the housing around the steering wheel to get to it . Its usually a large plastic componet on the left side behind the turn signal handle . It is always best to go to the local auto parts store and buy a haynes repair manual before attempting any repairs. Hope evereything turns out well for you !!
