Its a 1990 model 2.2 4y on Cooper STT I have fitted central locking, Sony Xplod sound visa4 alarm imobalizer, gearlock,Hella spots and Nokia bluetooth.
List of things I still want to do
1.) Fit electronic ignition
2.) Change the front seats need ideas on what seats to use though.
3.) Change the dash lighs from the standard green to the more funky blue
4.) Bit worried about the rear diff as it is slightly noisy
5.) Overhaul the carb
6.) Have a canvas canopy made
7.) Front bumper must go! To make way for new home made one :)
8.) Sort out the rims as they are a bit rusted and the R/R is buckled :cry:

Hi CM,

Interesting, I have made some comments in-line with yours, regarding my 1987 Hilux.

List of things I still want to do

1.) Fit electronic ignition
I have fitted the Chinese engine, which features electronic ignition, pretty sure my old 4Y also had this
2.) Change the front seats need ideas on what seats to use though.
Mine has separate bucket seats fitted, I believe the BMW 3-Series seats are a direct fit
3.) Change the dash lighs from the standard green to the more funky blue
I can't remember what colour mine are! Now I'll have to venture out in the cold to go look
4.) Bit worried about the rear diff as it is slightly noisy
Be wise to check that your propshaft is not out of balance too
5.) Overhaul the carb
I have just fitted a Weber 36. Second-hand, but reconditioned. Perormance is good, still have to test for consumption
6.) Have a canvas canopy made
Last price I got was around R1800 fitted, complete with frame
7.) Front bumper must go! To make way for new home made one :)
The 'standard' Toyota BB was annoying: Far too heavy and reflected my headlights from the top bar at night. Fitted a NudgeM at about R5600
8.) Sort out the rims as they are a bit rusted and the R/R is buckled :cry:
I paid R4000 for four new Coopers with new 15" rims. To powder-coat and balance the old ones would have cost the same as for a new set!
It's a great vehicle and very trusting! They just seem to want to go anywhere :D

A little bit of Pro Long in the rear diff should buy you couple more Kilos.

Hi CM,

You can order clear (transparent) covers for those Hellas. I have got clear covers on all my vehicles spots. Protects the lenses, and you don't have to remove them for use!

Got the covers at our local Midas.

Thats really cool FD I must check that out after I have sorted out my speedo cable that has started acting up :( Is there any way to to sort out all the rattles and knocks on rough roads? I have always driven BMW`s which are really quiet even on scraped gravel. I bought a Hilux because I want to do some serious of roading and I have always been a Hilux fan. My DC needs alot of work as you can see that bumper and bull bar has to go and the diff makes a little noise too but I am not sure if I shoukd worry about that what do you think?

Hi Justin,

Simon might be the best person to give you advice on sorting out problems. I guess I am lucky, mine has no rattles & squeaks to speak of, even on rough roads. Might be your suspension that needs sorting out? Other than that, these cars seem to be very rattle-free!

I used to have the full-height BB, there's a photo of a red Hilux in one of the threads that has the same one. I threw it off because it is very heavy and the headlights reflected off the top bar at night, very distracting. To me, anyway, it doesn't seem to bother anyone else.

On the seat issue.

Seen a Lux the other day with new RunX front and rear seats, works like a charm.
Apparently small mod. They oke Bought front and Back for R1800 from a Rolled Runx,
no damage to seats, loook brand new and looks very cool in the Lux, complete
with rear headrests.

On the Dashboard light: I just took my Dash apart over the weekend and the light
for the
vents are easy to change if you want to, just one clear globe with a Green transparent
Rubber (condom-pie) over it.
On the Dash side it has transparent globes to clip in from the back, but dont know
what changes the colour to green.
I think just
behind the lettering on the Clocks is a permanent Green layer, so you'll have a hard time changing it.
But maybe
its a Green hard plastic cover thats removable, then you can have White light.
To make it Blue, you'll have to have very Dark Blue otherwise its going to be very light
Blue when lit. I tried this with a Beetle I customised. Only way to get close to the
Blue of the new volkswagens is to have a very Dark Blue transparent Plastic with
Hi Watt Bulbs, but then you run the risk of the Bulb to be to hot and start to melt the
surounding area. I have been through this though.

But give us some feedback on the Clocks, would be interesting to know what makes
it Green. Maybe when you take it out to sort your Speedo Cable you can Check ? and give some Feedback.

What is the KM on the Clock at the Moment ? Mine also have a slight Hum on the Rear
Diff, but mine got the Gearmax Diff, your should still have the Imported one, if bit
better than the Gearmax, but I'm led to believe that you can fit a G/max locker in
the g/max diff and cannot fit a locker in the imported one ... :? Might be wrong.

Hi D4D

I have stripped out the cluster and it is the same as the vent lights a little green cover over the bulb which there are 2 of.

As far as the diff goes I am not to worried about the whine as the diff does have oil in fact I changed it the other day and I used a GL5 Castrol SFXO synthetic which is a long life oil we use in the BMWs I have 269000km on the clock. I think also half the noise I am hearing is comming from the Cooper STT`s which are muds. And you are quite right you can not use the gearmax locker in the imported diff you have to use a ARB locker.


As far as seats go I have a guy here in P.E. who can get BMW seats from the e36 3 series (dolphin shape) but I am waiting till he has Sand baige ones which will match my van.

I also want to redo the floor covering is the raider floor capet or vinal as in my van?

I am busy trying to get a new clutch master as mine is leaking but the one I got from Midas today is wrong :( At the same time I am trying to get hold of another 15 inch pro white wheel to replace the R/R which is buckled.

Well this weekend I will be replacing my clutch master :D no more topping up yippy. I got a complete new mater cylinder for R90 :wink: I think I am going to try and strip the dash and clean everything really lekker. I was hopping to sort out the wheels by this weekend however I have replaced the buckled wheel on the left rear. I have yet to drive it so I hope that was what was causing the noise at 110km/h! :?

I need to still center the steering and do the dash lights. Does anyone know if one can get after market speedo cable :?: :?

Hello Cookie Monster!

To what exstreme measures will mankind go to protect his TOY? I like your chain around the diff and wheels. :evil: I think the best way to protect you Toy is to sit in it with your shotgun as company and let your wife do all the shopping. :roll:


What are you planning on doing with your old seats, i might be interested?

Hi guys sorry you cant all see the chain :(

I have a bit of a problem and any advice would be really great! As some of you read I took my baby though to J-Bay and saturday after I had replaced the buckled rim on the R/R and replaced the other 3 aswell. However I felt a bit of a vibration which starts at around 100km/h goes away slightly at about 110km/h and the comes back at 120km/h. I know it is not a wheel because I fitted and balanced the wheels myself. Now here is the thing I thought it might be the propshaft so I had it overhauled today 3 new joints plus the center bearing, however it has not solved the problem :( :?: :!: :x Now the diff is a little noisy underload this whine starts at around 60km/h and continues on at higher speeds. My concern is that this vibration is comming from the diff :shock: And I really dont have the money to fix the diff now if this is the case :roll: I have inported diffs on my van has anybody els had the same problem :?: And what sort of money are we talking :?: I AM REALLY WORRIED NOW coz I love driving my van :!:

Sounds like your Propshat if out of balance. Replacing universals won't cure the problem of imbalance, but are a good thing to do anyway. I take it you are driving in 2WD and not 4WD? Don't laugh - when I got my SFA back from a service, they had locked the front hubs and I never realised this. Also had a mild shudder at speed, even when in 2WD.

I would suggest having the PS balanced, doesn't really cost that much. But you might have spline damage too, the PS people should be able to confirm this.

Holding thumbs for your part.

Hi FD

The propshaft guys did do the job for me and they did balance it do you think they did a bad job?

And by the way I did check that they did not lock the front hubs I remember you metioning it before

Hi Justin,

Simon will be able to give you some good input here (Syron Conversions). He has loads of experience with problems such as this.

I would suggest taking it back to the PS guys and telling them there is still a vibration, did they balance the prop before re-fitting it?

I was going to suggest what FamilyDog has said about balancing the propshafts, but some other items that you can have a look at.

Are the U-bolts tight?
What are the slip joint splines like, is there play?

If you climb under the vehicle with the gearbox in neutral, move the rear propshaft up and down at the transfer case side, has it got play? And then do the same at the diff side?

Are there arrows on the rear section of the propshaft, if so are they lined up and have you checked that all the yokes are in a correct line.

Somtimes the pinion or tranfer case flange nuts come loose, maybe there is a problem here. When they are removed new ones must always be fitted and torqued to a specail torque, you cannot just tighten them, must have a pre-load.

if you have a locker fitted in the rear, is it disengaged? Or is it an auto locker?

If you think it is the rear diff, drain the oil and have it tested by Oil Check.

Did you put it back exactly in the same physical position as when you removed it? I have found that this does make a difference, if you fit it "out of phase" to its original position.

Hi Guys

I had a look at my diff pinion drive flange and a found no play at all. However there is a very small amount of play at the transfer case out put drive flange. I will bring the van to work on Friday and I will make sure that the flange is torqued correctly. And while I am at it I will send the prop back to the Prop guys and ask them to make sure that the prop is balanced properly :roll: One of my Techs recon he had a similar problem with a 160i bantam and after replacing side shafts and the like traced the problem to the exhaust and after fitting a flex coupling the problem was solved. Now on my van the only thing holding the exhaust is the flange and the rubbers in the center and at the rear silincer what do you guys think :?:

Hi CM

I see the driving lights on your bakkie are strategically placed. :D It reminds me of my previous bakkies driving light placement. :D :D :D It helps a lot with flashing cameras and lurking men in blue (at least they wear blue in CT). It has saved me a lot of money in the past. Intentional or accedental?

Hi Neil

It was kind of a accident that it turned out this way but it does have its advantages however you will not be beating any land speed records with a SFA Hilux :mrgreen:

Very true. Similar story bought a bakkie (2.7 DC,4X2) that had the strategic lights and decided to do this one in a similar fashion.

Nou praat jy. With a SFA Hilux you can go many places where other vehicles need lockers etc to go. It is all about getting to know your vehicle and then it is a fine balance between driving as slow as possible but as fast as necessary to get over obstacles and axle twisters. The only time I believe a locker will really help you is in nearly vertical climbs or climbs with multiple cross axles close to each other or in heavy mud.

See this video of me climbing a almost 40 deg slope which was very sandy. A week earlier a few guys even with modified vehicles could not make it due to lack of traction as this slope was extremely dry and sandy

I will email it a bit later when from my other PC. You can also show him this one. It is a buddy how showed us how quickly you turn a 4wd Landy into FWD Landy. Listen for the clunk on his very first attempt when the stripped some gears inside the rear diff. He then continuous to try this obstacle blissfully unaware that his Landy is only pulling on the front wheels

CM,

I use Firefox as a web browser, and FF has this very useful add-on which allows you to download a Youtube film directly from the web site. You will then require a Player to view the video.

All the above are FREE!

I even have a video of Bennie's son somewhere, singing the praises of the CHEETAHS!!Image

Eric you are right. It would not help me emailing the clip to Justin since it is a .FLV file which Johan Engelbrecht (Jengel) posted so I do not have the avi or mpg version either.

I use video downloader 2.0 in Firefox to download these files http://javimoya.com/blog/youtube_en.php

Just a quick update on my van it looks like I have found a set of BMW seats for free :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I dont know what condition they are in but if the leather is good I will only have to dye them to match my interior. :D However if they are in bad condition I will need to have them recoverd and if so do you think I should cover them in cloth and do the back to or just stick to vinal :roll: :?:

Hi CM,

Congratulations! Please update us on whether they will fit your bakkie, and what mods you did, if any.

If you re-cover them, think about vinyl on the sides of the cushion area, and material for the seat & back rest, to prevent sweating in hot conditions.

If I have to fork out money to re-upholster seats I will rather fork out a few bucks more and have it done in decent (modern style) leather. Wearing short pants on weekends my legs and other parts of my body tents to sweat and get irritated way more on the Hilux' cloth seats then on my Pajero's (or my previous BMWs') leather seats. This is not true of vinyl though. Leather also cleans much better then any cloth type material.

The best layout I ever saw on a 4x4 toy was on a Little Zookie. The guy had the seats, door panels and dash redone in a combination of black leather and a strong vinyl type material like they use on Tonneau covers. He then ripped out all the carpets used some of these water based rubberising to cover all the metal parts that was previously covered by the carpet. Now he can get in with muddy feet and clothes without worrying much about cleaning the vehicle afterwards.

Photos please, in particular the mounts and hardware. We can worry about the cosmetics afterwards!

Have you measured to see if they will fit?

Ok Guys Just so as you know the seats will fit and I will make them fit and it will be easy :mrgreen: :D

As you can see the seats I have are the early type E36 316i-325i 4 door around the 94 year model with the solid backrest cap and has height fore and aft and of caurse back rest ajustment.

Once I have removed the bench I will take measurements and I will take the outside front mounts as my fixed mount points the inside points will have to be drilled and fabricated I just want to make sure that once the seat is lined up with the outer front mount point is that the seat is in the correct mid position. If that makes sence :?: If not I will have to rethink but I am sure they will be great :mrgreen: I have already fitted these type of seats to a E30 box shape there and there mounts are totaly diffrent

I think this thread is going to be watched very closely now :)

CM, please take photos as you go along, specifically, the existing floor pan holes in the Hilux and their measurements, how far apart, etc. It will make it considerably easier for the rest of us to look for new seats without first stripping the bakkie in order to get these measurements.

Are you going to fit the seats first before re-upholstering them, to ensure that they do actually fit?

Look forward to your progress!
