How To Give A Bj?


PDA

Hi all I'm about to buy a BJ42 I would like to know what are the points to look at before signing.

If you have information to give me do not hesitate I do not know the vehicle yet.

Which max tire size can we mount without raising?
What to do or not to do?

etc., etc…

thank you in advance

thank you for advance Galou_galou,
call me ;)

The points to look at before the purchase depend on your skills in mecha or DIY (weak point acceptable depending on the use you want to make (a collector is useless for duTT or work) and your budget .
As a rule I advise you a vehicle the most possible in its own juice, it is those whose aging is the + quantifiable (fuits electrical bundles too hacked and the bodies too made up, the extreme mechanic transfo)
Beware of what is expensive, like: the blades (sloppy); leaks (injection pump, bridges, boles, BV and BT …)
for corrosion look at the rounded rear fenders of the inside the rear wheel wells and the floor under the carpets and under the tar.
For rust be tolerant: devil:
For my part I prefer the 46 a little longer, more comfortable and better off the road; if possible after 83 to have the total (DA, disc brakes and box 5)
Here, good luck and patience

Thank you for the advice I had not thought about the assisted steering and the disc brakes …

What are the differences between BJ 40 42 43 45 46 etc …
It seems to me that the FJ are gasoline engines is it better or worse than the good old diesel?

Hello galou,

:) Hello :)
I'm crazy about BJ so I beg you to buy one … locomotive chassis and truck engine it's great: an icon of the 4x4 :) one of the few cars that gains value in aging … a collector :)

but be suspicious: I have a friend who has had a problem, so be careful, take your time to check that the engine is indeed a BJ engine (this is not the case of his own which is a foul hybrid hack of several Toy) … check the condition of the oil in the decks, the engine oil (no mayonnaise), the traces of coolant leaks (radiator-mounted without silent-blocks- and hoses), the games in the transmission (HS braces), and the steering wheelhouse (the game at the steering relay and the game of the steering links etc …), the silents blocks of the suspension (the axle rings in the binoculars), the wheel pivots, the synchronization of the speeds, the braking (see the jaws of the hoses),
and everywhere go hunting for "sauerkraut": as a BJ is rusty everywhere (it does not matter) a beautiful presentation necessarily hides the work of bodywork << house >> as well outside (bottom of crate, door sill) only inside (floor and bodywork). must also check the rain-tightness if the BJ has been disassembled to put it in the convertible often the joints are redone with a polyurethane cartridge simply … carefully inspect the windshield turn, the junction of the seats of the seats on the floor,

it is to wonder if it is not better to buy a BJ "in its original juice" and to remake it again starting from scratch

Hi !
I do not have the experience of BJ, but at the sight of everything I read, I would say that before buying a BJ, we must take into account the replacement price of different body parts (see site RoyCreation or the Canadian who offers aluminum elements), hardware, see the replacement of parts of the chassis (there, more serious).
Here is how I would do: ask the pedigree of the vehicle: if it rolled in Savoy or in the Pyrenees, watch carefully the chassis. If chassis attacked, do not bought.
If not, look at what body parts will be changing and the quote on the sites I just mentioned.
For the mechanics, anyway it is robust, but will take a tour on the site of 4x4 Adhesion and look at the most common work: if in particular open a BT do not scare you, then you do not fear much . The prices of the most common kits are on the site ************.
To summarize: in most cases you will not have the purchase price to consider because they are old vehicles and often poorly maintained. Unless you win the pearl at a good price, but there is very little chance.

Hi,
I see you want to make the leap !!
My personal experience (not necessarily a reference):
I bought last year a BJ 42 from April 83 with 220 000 km, I went to get it in Haute Savoie (I live in the Somme) about 700 km from the house. On this vehicle I had only 3 photos before seeing it on the spot, the seller had assured me that the engine, the BV and BT was in good condition (which is true) there was 2 years that he no longer running, the guy passed it to me the day before I get it back (2 pages of defects on the CT)
I went back up to the Oise and I ended up on a plateau (planned at the start of the expedition) because of clutch HS.
Since then I made the necessary stuff for the ironed CT (windshield, repair the exhaust, replace a headlight, the rear lights, unlock the brake calipers hidden some rust holes ..) and I roll with all the WE, I planned to replace the chassis (rotten by rust) the rear box (I made the plans and bend the sheet by a boilermaker) replace the blades by parabolic, mount binoculars and greasable axes redo the watertightness of the bridge before ….. (all the pieces are at home I wait the spring to do the works)
The work costs me about 1500 euros and the BJ I bought 2500 euros so for 4000 € I will have a clean and reliable vehicle, if you want a BJ 2 solutions:
Expensive and well done (it is around 910 000 €)
Cheap and rotten bodywork (in this case 3000 € is my opinion the maximum to invest) and there it is up to you to do it again but you have to be good handyman 'welding and mechanical work prospects)
For spare parts there are suppliers we found the piece at an affordable price (quality identical to the origin) the piece of origin is a bit expensive (if you have need for parts contact me I will give you the address of my provider).
Be aware that when you ride in BJ, you ride with a legend of the 4x4 and is not surprised to grow another BJ to have lighthouse calls is a sign of recognition to the image of bikers who greet between them !!
Be wise in your decision.

it's a legend that rolls

for info my buddy in BJ was walking alone when he met journalists and he was photographed for one hour

appeared in LC magazine a few months later

he had not asked anyone but: he rolls in BJ him …: idea:

: idea:: idea:
Hi me I just bought mine a while ago and frankly I'm delighted;) (BJ42) it's a true legend and in addition to TT it ensures the old, it tears the clods .. ….. :)
For my part mine was relatively clean sann too bobo? but before buying it, I frankly saw it in really limited states: bang:: bang: where the misery was just hidden: bang: and what's more, it's unfortunate, at prices in my humble opinion at above reality (even if I know our BJ, have no price …..). I know it's easy to say that when we have it, but the problem is that we want our BJ right away at the risk of buying a: ~:: o: and then being disappointed …
so I wish you to find one to your taste, but beware of the misery cache ……..: grr:
Happy holidays to all …..: glouglou:: glouglou:

it's the advantage of driving in BJ one becomes a star of the 4x4: glouglou:

Good evening,

:) Hello :)
… (this is not the case of his own, which is a foul hybrid hack of several Toy) …

Indeed, watch out for hacks. I bought a previously heavily modified 1980 HJ45 in 1994, thinking that the changes were more than one use point of view, but I did not realize at all what it meant from the point of view of finding spare parts . Because, between a set-engine-BV-BT of HJ60, the bridge AR of another HJ60 and disc brakes a priori of LJ70, there is what tear the hair.
That said, I always managed to find what I was looking for (thanks to the understanding dealers) and it always rolls.

A +, and Merry Christmas!

Hi everybody,
Here is a site that explains well, in my opinion, BJ series 4
http://yanis.net/toy/
After, it's about taste, budget, DIY, etc.
My 42 of 84 has the DA, after reading several messages and topics, it is a + but that is quite rare
http://www.4x4occas.com/?key=bj+42&ok.x=0&ok.y=0&bm=&tri=0
A + and happy holidays

Hi,
The DA appeared at the same time as the box 5 on model 84 (07/83) it is actually quite rare or a fortune in pieces of opportunity (about 1500 €) sellers feel like a treasure! !
But even with a mechanical steering it is not too hard turned in my opinion (tire in 31 * 10.5 * 15).
But as I said above or you find a good redo and expensive or it is less good but much cheaper …
A +

The ideal if you instead is to buy it cheap and make it again! After you know your gear by heart …: idea: But apparently with the BJ is better to know a bodybuilder: devil:

Hi
:Hello:
just to talk a little about my experience, I have a 42 for 3 years, I bought it in belgium because there is a lot there, as in Spain for that matter.
The price was very interesting but with a little bit of work, here I have completely removed and remade, it took me a year and now I'm happy with, something you need to know when you buy a bj is that you will always have to invest in it, because they are old ladies who always have small problems
Speaking of which I am looking for PACK OF BLADES BEFORE because I have one that is HS;
Good otherwise the bodywork remains the biggest problem of this vehicle, for the rest the engine 3B is indestructible (although some say that the breech is sensitive) I have a friend who has one at 500000km and that turns like a clock, mine is 223000km

HI

thank you
: idea: to have a tour on my site, I just try to have a little fun and show what I liked
what is your humanitarian project in 2007, that could interest me, but we must see the place and the conditions
hello: alcohol:

Too good, as we all get excited when there is a post on the BJ: idea:
Good all was said one last tip: either Very patient to make your choice, the model thanks to the internet (http://www.serie4.fr) then the vehicle, on the ground, do not hesitate to move for even bcps.

thank you

In fact I prepare a raid with my willys for Morocco. I intend to bring school business to schools in the Atlas, it will help and have a contact with the people :) You can go to my site on the trip trip, I explain a little more … ;)

Hi,
very well your site but you speak of bj42 petrol the bj is diesel so it would be a fj42? and after injectors? !!! then gasoline or diesel?
I will look for a diesel according to your say
otherwise how much did you buy it, and after restoration, how much did you get back?
@ +

hi: idea:
thank you for visiting my site: cool:
it is a 42 diesel with 3B engine, I have enough prob with the injection pump to know it (it is deregle and must pass ban)
otherwise i have paid 14500francs in belgium, and i did not calculate too much all the expenses i did on it and of course it's not finished, because i change the spring blades in 3 weeks and decided to to redo the painting before this summer, I also have a wing to change.
We can say that for the moment I had to spend 30000francs more: grr:
I know that I still have a lot to put in
but when you have a type of vehicle you must know it from the beginning
I have to adjust the sfrein hand and after I go for a ride on ski touring.
to pleasure: alcohol:
Hi

Hi,
What are the symptoms of your injection?
A ppe online normally it does not move too much ..
A +

Hi
the injection pump has been hacked by the former owner, so it smokes a lot and I think I consume a little too much, I was at gapa 4x4 for them it must be ban, I'll surely do but in Spain because it will be cheaper
otherwise I have leaks everywhere
: Grr:
A +

Hi,
still one who thought that putting a lot of fuel would make the BJ a fighter ….
We must start by reducing the wealth at the pump and the fumes should be reduced too!
Give me your email address and I will post an explanatory sketch of the pump (if you are interested of course).
A +

my toy it turns to the gasoil + oil of rapeseed or sunflower and history of the bust I add acetone, so no need of turbo, the foot what!
:idea:

AH YES
I forgot I live at 1600 altitude and the setting is not the same as for everyone, it is also true for alcohol, here it evaporates faster than elsewhere, it For that reason we will get ourselves in Andorra because when it is cheaper with evaporation we eat in the lowlands
Hi

Ben it is precisely if it is too rich and you are aloft the black fumes are quite logical must deplete it in GO or enrich it with air (overeating)
A +

okay
but I can settle it myself, because I do everything but I do not but the nose in the injection pump

Hi,
Just a little info,
Where is this screw of wealth?
She sees herself in the picture?

Thank you all for your advice.
