    97 Diesel Prado

    I don't really want to sell this but getting grief from the fiancÚ.

    1997 Prado Tx
    3.0 diesel (1kz-Te)
    209,000kms
    5 seater
    Auto
    Very tidy inside and out, except small scratch FR guard and LH end of bullbar missing.

    It turns out one of the plugs dropped a tip and the muppet who changed them didn't remove the broken bit, so it munted the engine and it ended up doing the head. So I've dropped 5k on a replacement motor, which had a brand new head put on at the same time. New starter motor (I think) and battery. Plugs and extractors and cam belt done at 203ish.

    Now running great again but it's caused some pre-marital grief and I need coin for the wedding too. Will probably buy a cheap runabout to replace it, so open to swaps plus cash. Open to receiving payment partially in hunting gear too, so long as I can hide it

    It has wof/reg, though 2 tyres will need replacing soon. Currently got dueller/wrangler ATs.

    Offers.

    Pics. And ballpark figure. Please. My offers tend to offend.

    I assume you remove the broken tip before putting the new ones in though!

    We try and get to it before it breaks off otherwise you'd be very lucky to get it out of a diesel engine without taking the head off I managed to do it maybe twice what a good feeling that is it tends to get imbedded in the top of the piston and you hear a little bit of a tapping noise I was able to do it in place if you get it soon enough as long as it doesn't Fuk the bore

    I can post more photos if needed but it's getting a bit tedious loading them. I'm looking for 13k but would let it go here for 12.5
