The “joys” of buying something old. It could be a house or a vehicle. There is the realization the previous owner made some changes “renos” that- Well, sure could be done differently.
This 1985 Toyota BJ60 Landcruiser had a Wilson switch installed – sort of. They didn’t remove the Toyota installed Superglow system and added a few wires to resemble the Wilson Switch. One of the wires was jammed under a fuse in the fuse box, and they used a on-off switch instead of a push-on (momentary) switch. Did they swapout the 12v glowplugs from the Superglow system for the recommended 10.5v glowplugs for the Wilson Switch?
For those that don’t know what the Superglow system is, or what the Wilson Switch is – They are different ways of warming up glowplugs in a diesel engine.
Opening up the dashboard, steering column and drivers side kick plate to figure out what the previous owner had done, and install the Wilson Switch.
