be wary of blown headgaskets and cracked heads. Check the oil for froth and smell it for radiator water, check the radiator water for oil, take the radiator cover off and rev the engine to see if you are getting lots of bubbles (compression escaping).
I had to replace an entire engine because of it, its common on the 2lte and the 1kz surf. Reason being the tranny cooler is inside of the radiator, when put under load, like towing and going up hill with a full vehicle this causes the tranny to heat up in turn heating up the raidator beyond its cooling capacity. To fix this install and external oil cooler before the radiator oil cooler so it would cool it down a bit more, some people have gotten rid of the tranny radiator cooler altogether and put a large external transmission cooler. Another thing to do when you now get your surf is to change the clutch fan oil, it has been known to lose viscosity over the years and leak out causing the engine to overheat because the clutch fan was not engaging. While doing this you can add a modification one time, I upgraded to the LandCruiser fan which is quite larger and has more pitch, when going uphill like maracas with full load you could hear that LC fan engaging like a beast and cooling stuff down. All this helped the cooling issues I had and after those stuff i did in addition to changing the thermostat, i never had over heating problems. Ask any surf owner about the dreaded head cracking issue, almost all know of it.

Follow those things I outlined and im sure you would not suffer the 12K faith i did.

AllTrac,
Thanks for you input, The surf i have has a toyota 5l engine.
Thanks for the info. on the tranny cooler, where can i get an external oil cooler?
About the clutch fan oil i did not know about that, does the 5l have that?

At the moment i have changed the rear and front diff. oil and all the drive belts.
Next in line is the tranny oil and timing belt.


I am looking for shocks, but the parts place wants me to take them off and bring it in, I would prefer to just go buy them and replace onetime
Do you know if the shocks are a standard type for the LN130?

Thanks again

your surf has the aircon radiator at the bottom?

If it does, then drop the mounting brackets, it (ac radiator) would just hang on the connection giving you about 2" extra space to see the filler hole and enough space to fit an extension for a ratchet

post pics of your surf Sniper, or a model like yours on the internet.
If i kept my surf I was going to intercool it and add a subaru gc8 scoop. Then repaint, this is the look I was going for:

its always better to get hot air out the engine bay than cold air in. Good example is the Mitsu Evo, all their bonnets never had scoops but vents so when air passes over it creates a vacumme affect and it sucks hot air out. The Toyota GT-4 RS/CS version also has a bonnet vent where as their toned down version has a bonnet scoop.
