    hilux surf
  1. Ok I have done a tappet cover gasket, Now there is 2 solenoid,s on top of the tappet cover at the back. Now I did mark where two of the hoses went but it has seemed to rub off. So there is a diaphram with two male ends on it. One is lower than the other. Now which vacuum hose goes to what? Does the orange one go to bottom or top?
  2. surf kzn130 3.0ltr 1995 ,, i have oil in turbo pipes breather pipes ect,, but still drives ok can any one help not done any thing like this before ,, tappet cover breather pipe full of oil ,,,,
  3. try ebay loads of surf ,s on there being broke for parts , hope this helps

  8. hi the surf has been recalled for the steering rod extension box ,, so i would check to see if yours has been recalled if not contact toyota mine is going in on the 26th april 2010 it,s worth checking it out thanks
  9. hi mate you want to check the crank shaft seal ,, you can check by looking near the timing belt cover look round the front of the engine for oil stains and check if theres any oil drips down the back of the engine on to the gear box ,,, can be very expensive to repair ,,, and just look every were you can under the truck for oil drip leaks etc ,, and just check all oil levels engine ,,geaerbox etc the 3.0 ltr is the better engine , do,nt be put off by surf having c/head done , just check how long ago it was done and how many miles it,s done since the head was replaced ,, hope this helps thanks
