    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    Good info! Thank you. Don’t plan to use clutch switch. Should the ECU input be left open or 12v?

    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    Plugging away at this again. Getting a code for implosible (sp?) signal for the brakes and a blinking glow plug light. When doing my wiring, I wired a relay to toggle a ground between the 2 brake inputs on the ECU when the brakes are applied. Doing a little research indicates a burnt out brake...

    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    I made them, pretty basic. I figured when I eventually get this running I will make up some hydraulic mounts if the vibes are too much

    Mtdi to Etdi?

    My build is using an AHU engine with ALH electrics. It’s not running yet but I expect it to run great

    best model toyota to swap

    Being in New Mexico, I would recommend a 2wd Tacoma/pre Tacoma if you don’t plan to Offroad. I know most would say 4wd, 2wd are kinda ugly, if you are looking for economy and some performance. There is some pretty good weight savings and those 26” vs 32”+ tires save a ton in rotational mass. I’m...

    Suzuki Samurai ALH swap

    Couldn’t you just ground one of the wires? I’d use the host temp sensor anyways because you know it’s compatible with the indicator

    1999 ALH accelerator pedal help

    I’m installing an AHU in a Toyota pickup using a ‘99 ALH harness/ECU. The only wiring I have left really is the accelerator pedal. I just realized the pedal I have is a part number for a gas Audi. What is the correct part number pedal I need? Also, the connector was cut off and I found a...

    It’s a decent Carter pump, I just don’t want to relocate the filter to under the bed

    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    Tinkering with this project again. I’m going to use an external lift pump, can I leave the fuel filter under the hood or would it be better to install it between the pump and fuel tank? Should I cool the fuel returning to the tank? There is plenty of room for a cooler.

    ALH into 1992 2wd Toyota dually

    Looking good! My glacial build started about a month before yours but I haven’t given up either, hoping to get it out of storage and into the garage at the new house. I’m roughly at the same point as yours. In the meantime I finished my harness with only 3-4 wires to hook up into the Toyota...

    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    Post pics as you go, I need the motivation. I remember a papasmurf from my Samurai days on a couple of Offroad forums.

    '86 2WD Toyota, 1.6TD to AHU

    It’s been at a standstill in my parents garage. Just bought a house and am hoping to get it in my garage to finish it up once it warms up a bit. Congrats on the cheap find, when you getting started?

    And onto the wiring.

    I would hook up the brake input, a simple SPDT circuit. I tried to find the reference I used but could not. Basically it said that a brake input is used by the computer to reduce slowdown shudder when you are braking from higher RPM’s. It doesn’t seem to be a big deal to those who don’t hook it...

    ALH Wiring Harness - Necessary Hardware

    Some guys have gotten away without hooking up the clutch and brake switches, they are both used for cruise control and anti-shutter when decelerating. Ice seen where some guys were having issues caused by the brake switches not being hooked up. I'm hooking them up just to be on the safe side and...

    What did you use for motor mounts and do you have a lot of vibes?

    Throttle response!!!!!?????

    I use a DPST relay triggered by the brake light signal for the ECU brake inputs. It toggles the signal when you step on the brakes. Easy.
