Was able to get the new starter installed in the Land Cruiser today with my friend Jan.
Relatively straightforward but it was a bit awkward to get at the top bolt. Luckily Mike at WestCoast Cruisers has every tool you can imagine which made the job a bit easier.
Did this fix my intermittent starting problem you ask? Actually no. Seems the stock solenoid can’t handle the extra kw of the diesel starter.
Next step , new solenoid……
