Re: Wiring the Samurai distributor in LJ80

BlueSilver - I'm in the middle of this swap right now, with a new distributor I bought off eBay. It has the same brown wire with 2 plugs, and a blue wire with forked terminal. The only way I can get it to fire is to attach it to the "-" of the primary windings on the coil, instead of the end of a ba...

I'm not very smart, but I am improving

My daily driver is a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. It's a great truck. Had it for 6 years, with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Recently, the TPMS light came on, so I decided to check my tire pressures. The fronts were a bit low, but I couldn't get the metal caps off of the valve stems to check the two rear ...

Re: LJ 80 Samurai distributor swap

If I swap a Samurai distributor onto my LJ80, do I need a Samurai coil as well? I think my coil is getting weak.

I'd like to do this swap eventually, when I can find a distributor, but don't want to buy two coils.

Re: Whipsaw, Canada 2017

Looks like you folks had a great time. It would be great to be able to join in some day, and meet some of you.

For now, though, I must keep plugging away at my little buggy.

Molasses rust removal actually works!

I put some parts in a tote a few weeks ago (ok, so probably 2 months ago), and tonight, when I was fishing around for the spring/shock plates, they actually looked pretty good! I tried to take pictures, but sometime my phone takes "orange coloured" pictures, and tonight was one of those times. One p...
