It was also necessary to replace the fuel level sending
unit with Autometer's unit (#3262). The stock Land Cruiser sending
unit produces 17 ohms of resistance at full and 120 ohms at empty.
We don't believe any domestic aftermarket gauges will work with the Toyota
sending unit. The Autometer sending unit has a range from 33 ohms
(full) to 240 ohms (empty) -- exactly double that of the TLC sender. The
only problem with the Autometer sending unit is that its bolt pattern is
not consistent with that of the TLC tank. We solved this problem by
making a hybrid fuel sending unit. We used the Toyota cap (bolting to the tank), but the actual sending unit is Autometer. Essentially, we simply modified the TLC cap and bolted the Autometer unit on it.
We also replaced the TLC steering wheel with a 15" Grant Formula GT model.
In order to ensure accurate speedometer readings, a ratio
converter was added in line between the transfer case and the VSS unit.
This converter incorporates the ratio of the TC speedometer gear, the R&P
ratio and the tire size.
