Well, I wanted to post my first steps toward getting BladeRunner on the road and then on to the trail...:driving: (suky pics.. sorry, they will get better)










My cousin and I pulled the head up off the block tonight.
Didn't get it completely off due to the fact I need some sleep, a little too much vodka was flowing....:p but its a start.

Looks like the head gasket is blown at the 3rd cylinder back from the front. Its awfully clean compared to the other 3 pistons.
The timing chain has alot of slack, so its getting replaced for sure.
I climbed underneath to have a look, and found a pretty bad leak on the brake line above transfer case. That will need to be repaired in a hurry.
I'm sure the further in I get, the more I will find.







So, now the journey has started, and I couldn't be more excited....and with a little help from my friends, we will finish it up with a SAS. :D :saw: :welder: :dancing: :aahg:

Looks good James. What's going to happen when you snap an axle on it out a BVORR? Your Taco isn't going to be able to pull it back.

Reminds me of mine. Your's has a better body but mine has a new engine, trans, clutch and brake job. This week/weekend mine is getting a 3" lift, sliders and 33s.

Once I get her home I'll start on the interior.

I'm trying to sell the Land Cruiser. If I end up not selling it then I'm going to move it into the back yard and keep it for a project to be started at a later date.
