    Recommendation (Oct/'85) Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60

    Not really sure about the why but can tell you these old straight 6s have TONS of low end torque, not fast and can be a bit rev happy in the upper ends but great, bulletproof engines. From what I have gathered after doing the desmog last weekend, these engines are pretty simplistic and...

    Hey Hessam thanks for the info on the Rotella Triple. And that is a nice find on the HJ60 in DC!!! For that price it is a steal if it runs well and the body is relatively rust free. There are a few BJ and HJs that get down from Canada or are imported properly but it does not happen often. I...

    yeah I would love it if they (toyota) sold a diesel SOMETHING in the states. But for now I will have to dream of purchasing a front clip from a 1HD-T for my 60. Until then the good ole' 2F will have to suffice.

    Recommendation (Oct/'85) Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60

    The FJ series up to the FZJ80 (1996) was all based on the straight six chevy block. From there Mr. T added the V8 engine. As for the HDEO DELO from Costco, it does not often get below 20* during the winter here but it does occasionally. Which is why I am thinking that a 10W30 may be a better...

    YOUCH!! Just found the stuff on AutoZone and it is $8.99/qt on sale! Guess I will be sticking with another high ZDDP like Rotella T which is liks $17.99/gallon normal price and have seen as low as $12.99/gallon.

    For some reason the forum won't let me edit my last post. Anyways, just found this in the VOA section. Like I said, the Castrol EDGE with Syntec 5w50 is now replacing the Castrol Syntec 5w50 and looks like the guys in this thread got a bottle with the new formulation still under the old...

    Castrol Syntec 5W50 SM VOA

    They are reformulating this into the new 5W50 Edge with Syntec. This will be a higher ZDDP engine oil aimed at "antique" engine cars that have higher spring rates and flat tappett cams, which makes it perfect for my 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser. This was part of my conversation with one of their...
