If you listen to the radio it's well worth it. Can't help you with units though, Alpine is where I would be at, but they can be pricey.

If there is oil in there, it's likely an easy fix. Valve cover gasket set will come with tube seals. It's something you could do yourself easy enough with the help of YT too.
Easy enough job. Saved me some money.

I'm curious as to why replacing a head gasket can cost so much. The YouTube videos, it looks like a pretty straightforward job. Or is it more complicated than it looks?

It can take a lot of time. Also, doing the job correctly means sending the head for machining to grind the surface back.

Honestly though, Rislone Headgasket fix is amazing.

Starting to look at what my next bike will be. I’ve had a lot of years to contemplate and this is something like my goal. Planning to build myself with some help from my mates and family.

Dose anyone have or know anyone that has a steering box for a 80 series Land Cruiser that I could buy? Am willing to travel to pick up ASAP
If you're after as new, Repco have them in their Brisbane DC. It should be operating tomorrow. It's got a hell of a cost on it, but I dunno what they're usually worth. If that's something you're after, let me know, I can try to have the price reduced.

Edit: Dunno how good you are with playing with that shit, but I saw that Repco Virginia have seal kits for the box available is that's an option.

Thanks for that mate, I’ve done the seals but unfortunately it looks like the whole box needs replacing.
I’ll definitely let you know if I go for the one in Brisbane

You could always try this bloke, he specialises in older models but looks like there's an 80 in there at the moment. Worth a call anyway.

You're on the West coast yeah? Repco store shitloads on the west, if it's here, I'd say they will have one there too.

If you drive one of these, pull over right now. Call the company, they will buy it back. These particular airbags make the big recall look like a little bitch. These will ruin your life.

The airbags are worse than the ones that shoot out pieces of metal and impale everyone in the car? Damn, must be pretty bad haha.

They shoot more metal in a more direct route to a skull.
Well if you're gonna kill people I guess the more metal the better. Don't want anyone accidentally living if they have a fender bender.

I've had 3 cars in my family have their airbags replaced in the last 2-3 years, including my own car. It's fucking annoying. I hope a lot of people lose their jobs because of it.
