    70 series cruiser heeeeeelp

    OK so my auto hubs on my Hzj73 cruiser are poked. Have bought some manual hubs but need help replacing them as I am incredibly hopeless with any car stuff. Anyone in Auckland can help for a box of beers or something? This weekend (Sunday) if possible please. Cheers John

    Youtube mate. It really is a simple job. Cars are logical, don't overthink it.

    If you do tackle it on your own, do one side at a time that way if you can't remember how to put it back together you can check the opposite side. It really isn't hard google and youtube should see you right. If your really not good on the tools then pay someone to do it, it's not a big job

    They are literally as easy to replace as they look, undo the bolts around the circumference, pull the old hub off the spline, slip new one on, do up the bolts around the circumference, job done

    Auto hubs or electric? If electric you can swap them. There is a guy here in Nelson who modifys the electric hubs so they can be manually engaged. Plus is they are stronger than any replacement freewheeling hub available, OEM or aftermarket.

    AH it simple, Just think Italian cars/electronics usually involve taking the engine out and cutting out most of the wiring loom.

    And that's just to remove the spark plugs!

    Off shooting today, so can't help sorry. Try to clean it all as it comes apart, and lay in order on a bit of newspaper or something, one side at a time.

    take photos of how it was and lots during. pay attention to things that you remove that look like they can go in either way around..... they probably cant. mark things if in doubt.
