View Full Version : My 1979 Toyota Landcruiser Diesel needs parts!

06-25-2011, 12:27 PM
I bought a non running 79 toyota landcruiser diesel and just got it running yesterday and now need a few parts to safely run it. Just had starter rebuilt and it works like a charm. I bought the Landcruiser with its starter all in pieces and I was not the guy that took it out so it was a fun half hour to figure out how to slip it back up in there. Not even sure what the other parts are and what I'm loooking for or if I can bypass items lol. Heres some pics of what I need to buy... please call Corey 250-706-0655
Finally put starter in....

I need two top battery brackets since it uses two batteries, easy to make yet would like stock ones...;)

Hook up for alternator. I need an alternator too. I have two early 80's gas engine alternators. I wonder if one of them would work?

I need the top piece since mine broke and no bottom mounting piece evident. Maybe the two holes near bottom of block are for lower alternator bracket??
What was attached here?? Also green plug in??

As soon as it started up, oil came out of pressure line, one with odd end on there for bolt to go through. I did though force a larger hose over it and onto the other line in case oil did come out - when and if it started up. Of course oil did spurt out of my lousy cvonnection lol. I figured most or all my oil pressure was lost through this line so I was choked and worried no oil got to top end or even crank so hopefully I damaged nothing... maybe this went to a engine oil cooler?? Could I just plug these lines for now?? I was cranking engine over and over for a total of a few minutes to bleed injection system and then it ran at a fast idle for maybe 10 seconds max.

for what im not shure ??

I would get a copy of the toyota EPC. It has all the diagrams and part number for your rig.
toyodiy used to be an online EPC. but toyota made them take it down. It will still have all the part numbers just no diagrams

what year is your landcruiser? 27020‑56090 should be the alt part number. its the 24V vac pump model. I thought the vac pump was mounted to the back of the alt BJ40's. You need the Vac pump assebly too (29300‑56050). Start looking for used.
90923‑02033 vac pump inlet hose
90923‑02059 outlet

Battery hold down is 74404‑60060 you need 2
Alt temerinal sub assy lead wire alt 27036‑56090

maybe the oil lines lube the vacume pump
forgot about the vacume pump on the back of the alt

the vacuum pump mounted at the rear feeds a 10ltr vacuum tank that is mounted under the chassis at the front seat.

Is your truck 12 or 24 jolt? I have a spare 12volt alt/w vac pump, should have the lower mounting bracket as well.
I might have the batt. hold downs as well.

I thought that the diesel toyotas ran power steering off the back of the alternators.

Hey thanks for the help. Crazy set up lol. zThought maybe the oil lines went to a oil engine cooler. A neighbor lives way up in the bush and will be in town today so hope to go look at his LC at where he works today. My toyota is a 1979 with manual steering. It has two batteries hooked up in a series. Is it really important both batteries the same CCA etc?

06-27-2011, 06:15 PM
Parallel or series, the batteries should be as close to the same as possible.
Just to be sure.
Series has the positive of the first battery connected to the negative of the second, negative of second to frame/ground. positive to accessories.

Parallel has the positive of the first battery connected to the positive of the second, the negative of the first battery connected to the negative of the second then to frame/ground. positive to accessories.
On my BJ60 LandCruiser the vacuum canister is the black can on the firewall, i suspect your to be similar.
One vacuum line in from alt, one out to brk booster.
Anyways G&S Cruiser Parts should have a 24 volt alt/pump for you.
I have a spare vacuum canister if you don't have one.

if your just trying to get it going battery cca shouldnt mater if there matched
but would match them once you have it going and driveable
rather than spending money on something that might not run

06-27-2011, 06:25 PM
X2, Get it going first.

06-27-2011, 08:50 PM
that vacume can is the same as my 86 2.4d pu
and alt looks same to

06-28-2011, 09:08 AM
Well look at my neighbors LC yesterday... same year... 79 diesel, and I am missing the voltage regulator that goes on the firewall. And I need the 24 volt vac\alt pump. Thanks for the help so far... and yes once its drivable buy two matching batteries. Also was told to make sure I have a 24V12V inverter for the winch. However there is a stereo in it and I expect its only 12V so maybe inverter under the dash?? As for batteries, neg of first battery (passenger side) goes to ground, then its pos to neg on second battery on drivers side, then pos of second battery goes to starter.

Some LCs were 24 volt everywere. So watch out take a bulb out and look. There should be an issolator on the battery cable some were. My HDJ81 is only 24v at starter, glow plugs, fuel heater and winch. Toyota Stock winches were 12v or 24v. I have also seen allot of 24v toyota radios. All NATO spec vehicles are full 24v electrical

I'll pull a bulb and look. I'll ckeck bat cables too.

So contacted EBI Cruisers for a 24 volt alt and Steve seemed leery about selling me an alternator with a core to send him. I dont blame him yet I have no core to senf him. Any idea where to get one??

12-31-2011, 08:30 AM
These are your best bet.
Look in the Classified section on the mud site.

12-31-2011, 11:34 AM
There is a guy selling an alternator 24v in the JDM section for $200.
It is the first ad in that section.

01-03-2012, 11:34 AM
On which site? Can you post me a link?

Well finally after 3 years owning this thing I got it driving around the farm Friday. Finally got 24 volt alternator-vacuum pump mounted in last year with a 24 volt aftermarket 3 wire regulator. It ran great and charging system worked good. Bought a pair of matching batteries this spring. Put them in. Then Friday I mounted in new clutch slave and bled that. Started up really good. Blow-by pipe that comes up from right side of diesel engine does not smoke but you can see lots of clear ?blow-by? coming up and out. Anyways clutch works great and drove around in 2 high for a bit. Now transfer case shifter will not shift into 4 high so I guess something is rusty and jammed. Any ideas how to get the t case to shift?? I'm thinking from it sitting for 6+ yrs shift rail may have rusted up internally and wont slide now? I figure get under it and try to pry it while Becky trys to shift it?? Looks like it may be easy to take apart?

Think I`ll take it hunting tonight, no windshield in it but just as cold as a quad but the heater works lol!

10-09-2013, 01:05 PM
Maybe after a good run I can shift into 4hi but thinking shaft is rusted inside from sitting.... I`ll try to take a pic tonight lol
