Toyota Land Cruiser Specs and maintenance.

Hey all,

Does anyone know of a good web page for the specs for a 1993 Land Cruiser? I am looking for page with specs like timing at sea level and altitude, plug type, points gap general maintenance etc etc.

I use a cruiser in Ecuador for my tours and do not trust the local mechanics so I want to double check everything they do .

Thanks in advance.

Joe.

PS If you are ever in Ecuador let me know as I know this country like the back of my hand and would love to show you around, plus I have a 4x4 for fun adventures! You can contact me direct at info@ola-adventures.com or check out my photos here

Try IH8MUD.com - "The Truth is in the Rocks". But you'll have to be more specific as "1993 Land Cruiser" doesn't mean anything to these guys.

here you go

(there it was a guy called Miguel near the airport who used to do most of the overland trucks, -don't know if he's still there- maybe he knows some decent Toyota mechanics, then again... for 3us$ per hour we can't really expect japanese quality workshops...)

cheers
