methinks I need a clutch master cyl and slave for my KB4T

Fluid constantly going dark and I changed rubber on it already. Methinks previous owner used a sub CMC and it's not a good build quality. Would change slave on general principle.


Anybody know where have these in stock?

the kit is just seal/gaskets.... teflon rings, orings...

the box is recirculating ball.... there are a million slugs around a worm gear in the box...

jus be careful when dissassembling and reassembly..

get an exploded diag to help u.

but yes u can attempt the job once u have the tools and a lil mechanically inclined.

get the diagram first tho. check higher up in this thread, there was a link for workshop manual. not sure if this will be in it.

does ur steering box hav excessive wear/play at present?
consider getting another one instead of fixing leak on the one u presently have if that is the case.

Jus actually came back from Fast trac and i was told i have a conversion dont know what that mean but i was 3500 for one which i found to be real expensive for a used part but say what
One of friends looking into gettin some to check it for me/fix it so I'll see how it goes

Good Day Tuners,
I have a 2007 L200 Sportero of which i'm experiencing a long tumble when i'm starting the vehicle. When i start the vehicle especially in the morning it sometimes tumbles for 5-10 seconds before starting. It's due for a tune up and the mileage is very high (approx. 250k). I am not sure if those attributes have any contribution to this "tough" start but any info or advice on this topic would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Do a general service that includes changing your glow plugs.Glow plugs are most likely the issue for the long tumble in the morning.Had the same problem with a hilux.

Do this only if u running higher than stock turbo boost.. Otherwise dont.. If it is your clutch fan has gotten slack.. Replace the silicone oil inside the clutch assembly..

hey good day tuners i'd like whatever advice/help can be offer to me with regards to an overheating problem i'm getting with a k74t ... top hose gets very hard even when parked up overnight it has pressure in the radiator next morning ... no water being lost nor any bubbles (no thermostat) Today i reinstalled the thermostat and temp (according to gauge) sits just above half and i decided not to drive it to create more problems, however at idle and temperature at half the top hose is no longer getting hard but the high temps i'm worried about
