Used Parts around Cape Town

Post by Ronnie79 » 23 Oct 2015 22:14

Hi,

Does anyone know were I can get used parts for my Y61 4.2D around Cape Town? Or if someone has a scraped car. I just need some small things.
I want to install a snorkel but everything between the air filter and where the snorkel is supposed to connect (pre cleaner?)

Regards Ronnie (We're a Swedish couple who went lost in Cape Town :woo: )

I've tried to get a hold of Frans through this forum without any success.
Does anyone have his number? Or enywhere else I can find used parts, any scrapyard aorund Cape Town?

I'm also interested in a bonnet and a Aux/extra tank with fillerpipe and all the rest I need to mount it my car that only has one tank original.

I will PM you his number.

As far as I know, Y60 wagons only ever had one tank, so the filler setup is a bit of an issue. Some guys use a y-piece from a Prado, but I can't figure out how that get that thick pipe through between the chassis and the body.
