    Hi All
    I finally pulled the trigger on a new starter motor for the 1GRFE V6 in the 120 series.
    Settled on a Bosch BXD039N. Now this baby cranks! @ 2kw compaired to the Denso original boasting 1.6kw.
    Had some conflicting info as to wether this was a direct replacement.
    The bosch is a bloody lot heftier unit, and a very precise fit.
    The main battery cable mounted up to the solinoid lug without to much hassle, but the ignition wire plug is in a lower location on the starter so this wire had to be extended.
    Cheers

    What polish do you use Dave? I would be keen to try it out.

    Nice rig. Was this the one that was forsale at BigRock?

    The Prado was purchased by a buyer who represented several dealers.

    Hows that for my 8th day of owning a Prado Grande!!
    I have a Grande. With winch bar etc. ARB are full of crap.

    Had my suspension done for years. No issues.

    Finally fitted my roof box and combined my solar panels.

    200w Solar Panels connected through an EPSolar MPPT Controller, through to a slim-line 165ah AGM in the rear of the cabin.

    Pumps in approximately 14amps per hour.

    Five wheel rotate (almost 100,000 km on these MT ATZ 4 Ribs), treated the rotors with anti-squeal, washed the girl with CT-18, must say impressed with the result and treated the windscreen and rear glass with Rain-X.
