New Starter Installed

1HZ Old versus New Starter Motor

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……
