Toyota HZJ75 - Thinking of spare parts...

The car in question is a 1988 HZJ75 H2 300.000kms (Auzzie import) the planned routes are 2010 Gambia, 2011 North Cape 2012 Overland India.

The cars in good condition and I’ll do all the usual maintenance before hand, apart from the usual bulbs, cable ties, duck tape.. anything special I should plan for ? the pervious owner drove it from Cape Town to Belgium with nothing more than spare bulbs and wrongly ordered rear brake shoes !! The only problems where a sticking fuel pump and broken shock. I don’t fancy carrying either …. I’m focusing on the preparation as much as possible.

I’m in two minds about taking filters, oil and pass fluid as being a Toyota – should be easy enough to find en-route. Maybe I should add the Axles and gear boxes where rebuilt prior to its departure in CT.

Thanks in advance
Matt

Spares

Hi,

The car you are talking about is not a HZJ75 but a HJ75 which is essential info when you buy parts because the HZJ stands for the 1HZ engine. The HJ75 has indeed an H2 engine, similar to the HJ60 (not the HJ61 which is supercharged). The HJ75 has never been imported in Europe so the Toyota dealer may look surprised if you ask for spare for the HJ75, they probably won't have any data on that car. The engine spares/gearbox spares are mostly the same as for the HJ60. The body/axles/propshaft/diffs of the HJ75 look very much like the HZJ75 but can differ from the HZJ75 but are also in some cases exchangable. It can be a bit confusing.

In Australia this car is a legend but in Africa and Europe it is unknown. There will be a lot of confusion about part numbers over here. Maybe try to get Toyota parts numbers from Australia for the parts you plan to take with you before ordering anything here, like the wrongly ordered brake shoes from RSA! That is typical.

Cheers,
Noel

Toyota spares in the UK

Hi Matt,

Your local Toyota dealer may be able to help. I've got a new 78 series which is not an EU vehicle. Sims Toyota in Northampton have been very helpful in supplying parts. They've got me genuine wheels, trim, body parts, light clusters with no problems at all. Delivery has usually been within a week.

It may be more difficult with older models.

Happy trails,

Jojo

PS Just back from North Cape - awesome!

I certainly agree! Take your car to a dealership or have a mechanic check the car for you. So not to experience any difficulties in the future.

Hi Matt,
I've owned a HJ60 with the 2H for a few years now, the only issue I've had under the bonnet was when the alternator gave up. It still got me back from mid-France to Portsmouth, but was a bit nerve racking using the headlights and wipers for the last leg!
It was the regulator that went, they're only tiny so could easily be stashed somewhere. Or I'd recomend getting it rebuilt (bushes, brushes and reg) if you don't think it's been done recently. Mine was only reading 130000 miles when it died.
I'd also carry oils, fan belt and rubber hoses, but each to their own.

Happy travels
Sam

same here, alternator went Christmas eve when I needed the vehicle for our break away, luckilly had a randon spare one in the garage in a box of bits that worked.
mileage was 190000ish
Milner off road can supply a lot of the parts, but some of the quality is getting a bit suspect.

Never, ever, ever buy bearings from Milner......might as well be made of cheese!
In fairness, the exhaust for my 60 came from them and it's excellent quality.
Gaskets and bushes were ok too.
