The Hilux – A few bits


There are so many little jobs that need doing, it seems like i knock over an entire list and then write another list. Above is the power steering reservoir, the AN8 fitting is the pump feed and it has a copper line that runs to the bottom of the tank. Once its plumbed ill run the pump with a drill to make sure it can draw up the tube.


I have fitted a couple of 4 rib belts to get the sizes, luckily they are on the shelf and available everywhere, i will mod the water pump pulley and crank pulley to allow me to run the 4 rib belts. I took the front off the crank balancer as it wasnt needed and then sandblasted it raw.


I have finished plumbing the brake and clutch lines, i used bulkhead fittings that run though the firewall.


From the inside.


The base on the handbrake i was going to weld directly to the floor, i thought i better make a bolt on plate so that i can make changes down the track.

Now to pull the motor out again and tick of another list of jobs.
