This week I was in Las Vegas for work and I met up with "LJ-70". Him and his wife picked me up from work in the 70 series Land cruiser and treated me to a trip into the mountains to go cruise around the trails above Las Vegas. He just finished the motor swap from a 2L-t to a 2L-tII. He even let me drive for awhile.   :driving:





























Thanks for the hospitality!! It was great to meet you.

 :worthless: :haha:

Here you go steve.

Finished installing all the bottom end bearings. Now if I can find my oil squiter nozzles I'll be able to drop the crank in.

I found the oil nozzles but I can't find the oil check bolts that hold the nozzles in place. Might just buy some new ones.

Yeah but I'm starting to wish I had made a photo template for the bolts that went on the interior of the engine. Called my parts guy at Toyota who said the last 3 in the US are in California. Wouldn't you know, I need 4? He's gonna see what he can do If not, I have a source in Japan and Steve in the U.K. And shipping for 1 bolt isn't too bad. And only takes about a week. 1st world problems.  :usa:
