Go for it (LPG that is). With the 2k Gov rebate it shouldn't end up costing you more than $500. 60 will have plenty of room for a tank. Better not to put it underneath if you want to do some proper off-roading in it.

Better yet, drop a 350 into it then put it on gas :twisted:

5 typical toyota's then :mrgreen:


Typical Toyota's I don't think so. I have been working on Toyota's at a dealership for 12years. The main reason for rebulding everything is due to poor maintainance. look after a vehicle & it will look after you.

Toyota had a fuel problem issue on 2 motors [forget which outback area it was now] but the problem had nothing to do with #8 piston . Hmmm .... internet for ya' !

But some people have had issue with the V8 diesel changing up into 6th gear [Auto - is a 6 speed]

While the old 2F & 3F 4.0ltr petrols can be quite reliable [on the 3F - it can require the "Points" to be re-set every few months] , & the 2H diesel could last a very long time if well looked after [but slow ,lol] , the motor to get in this classic vehicles is the "12-HT" which is the factory direct-injection turbo diesel [it's also a 4.0ltr] .
The standard 2H was an in-direct injection & non-turbo motor .

12-HT was released 1985/86 & was on sale till 05/1990

60Series Cruisers with the square headlights are
- 61Series Diesels [2H & 12-HT]
- 62Series was the petrol [3F]
