Good day All,
Does anyone know of a decent engineering shop in the Roodepoort area who can repair a Land Cruiser motor?

Obviously the option of a conversion comes up... does one fit a Lexus etc. etc.
But that's not the preferred option in this case. The owner wants to stay original and preferably have the same motor rebuilt.

Centurion Motor Engineering should be able to completely recon the engine.

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.
