Ongelukkig vir die SFA met Groot bande raak dit taamlik scary hoe Nader Jy aan 200kmh kom so ek bly maar weg van daai nommers af.
Stem saam ek het geen liefde vir transfer cases met kettings nie. :D: Die 0.73 5de rat van die Isuzu is ideal.
Met ons 5de rat uit ruiling sal ons op `n 0.69 staan

Christopher put a lot of work into the Hilux. New bell housing from Gilo. Nice cut outs for battery and steering coupling for the 40mm move of steering box. Made new engine mountings and fitted the engine in a dummy run.
Still need to do the ratio swop in the gearbox and the RF1A transfer case mod.

That will be one awesome Hilux once you are finished with it. The best of both worlds - SFA Hilux and the V8 growl :)

Chris, looking good!

Why the 40mm move on the steering box if I may ask?

I hate cramped spaces, it gives very good access to the power steering box and power steering pump. On most SFA Hilux/Lexus conversions I have seen the is almost no space left between steering box and power steering pump.

True, I can still get my fingers in between mine but yes its tight but not to the point that it will touch. But why not hey, with every build one gets that bit more organised.

The compactness of Yankee v8`s is amazing. Parked the Lexus next to a 351W in my workshop the other day.
351w @ 5.7l a lot smaller than the Lexus @ 4.0l. 351W only 60mm longer but all the other dimensions beat the Lexus hands down.

Very nice build you have :thumbup:

Christopher have completed the engine mountings. Think they are strong enough to handle a Big Block :D:

We are about to do the 5th gear ratio swop and fit the R1AF behind the R151.

Marius as those are semi solid mounts your engines block absorb some of the stress. I got tired of engine mountings failing on high powered engines. This is my trade mark in almost all my conversions and to date there was no failures on any side of the mountings. Have them on the other 3 v8`s I own.

Christo, how heavy are those V8's compared to the lexus? At some or other time I may want to stick a V8 in my Cruiser and your mounting design has got me thinking.

Daardie V8 is seker heelwat swaarder in gewig as die V8 Lexus?

`n 302 AFR aluminium heads weeg 187kg.

Die Lexus is so 10kg ligter teen 177kg.

Op die R151 topic - my Kz het gehap aan 400Nm en toe ek hom verkoop het op 433 000km was dit nog die oorspronklike kas.

Die Hilux loop nou in Zambie - 'n vriend wat in Lusaka bly sien hom so nou en dan.

If you are a diesel fan, raise your hand.
If you aren't raising your hand, raise your standards!

A 4x4 is merely a machine that enables you to get stuck further away from civilization.

Christopher het lang tye voor die draaibank spandeer en sy eerste adaptor plate vervaardig.
Goeie leerskool gewees. Miskien nie 100% perfek nie maar alle afmetings is 100% akuraat.

So gister het ons die R151 en RF1A aanmekaar gebout. Gear driven transfer cases bly maar bo aan die lys. :yahoo:

More almal,
Louis hier, ek is nuut op die forum en (eintlik so per toeval) die trotse eienaar van n’ “brand new second hand” ’98 (IFS) Hilux d/c 4x4 raider ,Lexus 1UZ conversion.

Na die deal gedoen was, het ek Saterdag terug gery van Pretoria af Richardsbaai toe. Brandstof verbruik was 7.5 km/l wat te verstane is, want ek het teen 125km/h (GPS spoed) 3600rpm geloop.
Die enjin loop baie goed, idle doodstil (Spitronics management), so ek is tevrede met dit. Vandaar die naam GRWLR ZN (die ding growl behoorlik).

Maar die kopseer wat so van 80kms in die rit in opgeduik het is dat die gearbox warm word en duidelik glad nie van die storie gehou het nie. Die gearbox en diffs is nog standard (oorspronklik die 3000D hilux gewees) Ratios vir die diffs is 4.885 sover ek kan vasstel. Dit is duidelik dat die gearbox al oor gedoen was. Daar is baie idees en weergawes wat die rondte doen in verband met wat die beste setup is. Ek wil manual 4x4 bly.

Die million dollar question is:
Wat is n’ goeie setup? Doen ek net die diffs of diffs en gearbox.

Enige raad en of idees , kontak nommers, sal waardeer word.

GRWLR ZN

Ok ek het nog nie met Gerrit gepraat nie,
Maar het met Jannie by J&M Lexus conversions gepraat. Hy reken dat of die 4.1 of 4.3 die beste opsie is.
Dit is die derde keer dat ek nou hoor van die 4.3 ratio.
Dit klink belowend.

Ek sal laat weet hoe dit gaan.

Dit hang maar van die aplikasie af as jy n expidisie voertuig soek gaan jy maar seker die lang been besigheid kies eks heel happy met die oorspronklike diwwe ek dink dis 4.875 met lockers en n 3,2 box, mens soek moeilikheid as jy die ding na 200km/h toe vat met 35's

Ja nee kyk. Bakkies is nie gemaak vir 200km/h nie. Tensy dit n' Lumina SS is!

Ek soek bietjie langer bene vir die oop pad. Het so bietjie gaan sommetjies maak en met die 4.3 diff sal dit die rpms van 3600 af bring na so +- 2300 teen 125km/h.
Dit is beter vir lekker cruising daardie. Ook baie beter vir brandstof verbruik.

Kyk, hulle se n' mens koop nie n' V8 vir goeie brandstof verbruik nie, maar n' ou kan ten minste droom! :laugh2:

:taunt:
Was dit so titseltjie sarkasme daardie? :surrender:
Sou nie se ek soek n' fuel saver nie.....dan sou ek n' Yaris of iets gekoop het.

Ek is net nie mal oor die high revs storie nie. Ek is eintlik maar n' diesel man , so raak ongemaklik as n' motor so hoog rev... :D:

Some water down the river since my last post.
As Christopher my son is almost fully occupied with his studies the Hilux were moved to the back burner.
Long story short I bought the Hilux from him.

Made a few mods along the line. Moved the front cross member forward. Want to run a viscous on the Lexus. Aircon is a must on the Hilux so I want to keep the space for a front mounted aircon condenser.

Removed the engine to fix a stripped mounting bolt on the engine block. Engine now permanently mounted.
Will start a complete rewire soon,
