Rebuilding the 1HZ Motor – Day One

Began the process of rebuilding the 1HZ diesel motor in our Toyota Land Cruiser BioCruiser.

Today was spent removing drive-shafts  transmission, transfer case, radiator and a hundred or so various odds and ends from the truck. Finally once that was complete we hooked the motor up to the engine hoist and raised it out.
