Re: My LJ to be in a Japanese Collector Car Magazine

Re: How to Clean your LJ-10/20 Fuel tank and recoat it

Used Bill Hirsch Gas tank sealer on my lj20 gas tank. It worked good, there was a lot of pooling and some places and it didn't look pretty but once it dried it was not peeling off, and no one looks inside a gas tank anyways!

I had it hooked up to the end of one side of the housiing, because one side was more bent then the other. Originally i had both far ends hooked up but the jack still woudllnt budge it.

Re: Front axle rebuild. How to straighten housing

The inside of this case is pretty mangled, luckily after the gear is welded, it will be oversized being of an lj80, so this has to be bored out anyways

Front axle rebuild. How to straighten housing

I will show step by step how i fix my axle, which has a bent housing and a broken planetary gear, plus stripped axle splines.
to do this i had to cannibalize an lj80 axle for parts.
First thing,I took out the axle and took it apart.
