Toyota SDK8

I have a 1984 Toyota SDK8 that I bought a number of years ago.  It is a great skid loader, but because they are no longer imported into the US, it is a real pain to find any info.  I am going to start posting all of the information I have about it on this page, hopefully some other folks will add any information that they may have.  Right now I am focused on getting the starter turning over reliably, it usually only turns over about once every four or five tries.

My bucket attachment is also all mangled up, I am curious if anyone has replaced their’s with a BobCat Quick Tach attachment plate?

Repair manual which covers the inspection, adjustment and repair procedures for the overhaul of the engine, chassis and materials handling system of the Toyota Skid Steer Loader 2SGK6, 2SDK6, 2SDK7, and 2SDK8.

Fuel Filter Napa 3386

Oil Filter Napa 1521
Hydraulic Napa 51551

Fan Belt Mitsubishi 99523-11 52

Motor for SDK8 is a Toyota 2J diesel. Diesel Forklift truck CPCD80-2,80-2J,TOYOTA 2J ENGIN D B 4CY, 2.5 LTR

Go here to find some mini-skid steers.

    Hi, Thanks for the pictures of your SDK8. I just bought one.
    I have 2 problems that you might have encountered. First is I cannot get it to stay running. It will start and then dies right away. None of the lights light up on the dash so i assuming it is just a wiring problem. What engine is this?
    My pedals are stuck and only work together. The bucket will not go back up.
    Thanks for any ideas.

    I have two ideas.

    1) The engine is a Toyota 2J. There is a EDIC control unit that moves the fuel control from off, on, and start. It moves the fuel off when it senses a loss in oil pressure. It seems as if many folks disconnect the EDIC, and operate the fuel control manually with a cable into the cab. That is the way mine is setup. You could test this pretty easily. It could also not be seeing oil pressure, that will also cause the EDIC to shut off fuel.

    2) There is a safety interlock for the pedals, it sounds like it MAY be sticking on yours. Look for a rod that locks the pedals and the solenoid that controls it. Again, many people have hot wired this solenoid.

    Where are you located?

    Hello Collect
    I have a problem with the starter, burned all but unfortunately I can delete the serial number and I can not see it.
    I would ask if someone can give me the number of starter

    James, have you gotten anywhere with your motor seal? I think my SDK8 has a blown seal too on the left motor.. my left drive is choppy also, only does about half the speed of the right, suspect that is signs of bigger problems..

    Being new to hydraulic maintenance, found an interesting read, hydraulic tutorials for any one interested, very informative

    Hydraulic Oil
    There is a recommendation at (post # 13) to use “Automatic Transmission Fluid – Type F 6.6 Gallons (25L)”, which I believe is what the previous owner has put in mine.

    Slow RHS & a bit chatty
    Mine does this on the left, and leaks a bucket load of hydraulic fluid between the frame and the motor mount… I bet the motor seal is blown in mine.. If you are not loosing oil, then perhaps you may try bleeding the air from the hydraulics… service manual has a section on this

There is a 18 series made in the us, that has similar parts, literature number (BLN-9666, BLN-2-41635 or 520L0664). Big difference is how pumps mount to the center section.

    PV1818AR-N41D cylinder block kit can be ordered from toyota..(38131-42800-71) but is very pricy, around $2100, just the seal kit was $425, the majority of the cylinder block parts appear to be same as standard PV18, I got a price from Andy for a rebuild, “$500 exchange complete rotating group”, so thats $1000 for 2 cylinder block kits, but never did it… google ‘pv18 pump’, 100’s of company’s in china can supply parts…

    If your steer stick jumps when you let it go in a hurry it is probibly a week spring in the hyd driveand if it will not turn prob a stuck valve in drive.These motors are costly to bye or repair,around $8000 new $5000 second hand.
    New bare heads can be purchased from Rolin Auto Parts in Qld(07)55938533 for around $550.00. If you need valves tell them if they are round or square collets.They also do full rebuild kits around $980.
    Jerome I don, quiet understand your message.
    If you are looking for the serial No it is on an aluminum plate between you legs when on machine and is stamped on the frame ,(RHS when looking at front)under the back end of the lift ram. What are you calling the steer pump-the hydro motor or the hyd pump that is bolted to the engine

    Hey Tim, you might find that it is the starter relay located behind the panel on the upper left of cage. Mine went out, I was able to jump it with a wire to confirm. Try that first before messing with the starter.

    You will have to buy parts through a Toyota Material Handling dealer, for my ‘2SDK8′ I usually go to Toyota Lift, 11446 N Woodside Ave, Santee, CA 92071
    (619) 562-5438
    Toyota parts are pricy, the engine is used in several models of forklifts etc, so you may find some aftermarket parts on ebay etc hit and miss, but have never seen EDIC motor, you might try getting the starter motor/alternator etc rewind – might be cheaper, some parts are end of life…

    first hit on ebay US searching ‘sdk8′ found a starter motor $319, if you click on the ‘go to other items from this seller’ who knows… you may find an alternator… no clue on how decent the parts are… if you find a parts source other than Toyota dealers… please post

    Hi guys. I have a 2SDK8 as well which has no bash plates on it. I can get them new from Toyota Japan but at $400 a plate im not to keen on that idea. If anyone can measure theirs up and post a drawing that would be greatly appriciated. I would much prefer to knock them up my self. Thanks

    Jeff, I just ordered a fan blade along with many other 2J parts from “parts we can”. It is the only place I have found parts and the prices are good. Shipping is higher but it is direct from China. And again, could someone send me pics of the throttle linkage/ injection pump. And other under hood pics. Please!

    Where about are you located?, perhaps someone in your area has a 2sdk8 you can go look at…
    I am curious about the parts you ordered from china, would be interested in hearing about them when they arrive, quality of the parts and how you would rate the experience.

    Gary, are the bash plates the under carriage protection plates?, drop me a note in forum with email and I will get measurements

    I ordered a bunch of 2J diesel parts. The 2J Toyota diesel is in the 2SDK8 skid steer and is very hard to find parts for, or at least was for me. After searching and not wanting to pay huge numbers for parts I found “” they do not have much for the Toyota skid steer itself but do have every singtle engine part you could need, from internal to external engine parts. They do have parts for other engines and machines too. I ordered a bunch of parts (crankshaft, camshaft, push rods, tappets, pistons, sleeves, fan blade, etc..) I paid using Papal. After only a week I received all my parts from China! Only a week! Everything I ordered showed up and seems to be of good quality. The prices are very reasonable (cheaper than I thought it would be) is a safe and reliable supplier of engine parts for the Toyota 2SDK8 and other machines.

    I just got my 2SDK8 machine running and when I move the steering controls it moans quite loud. It moves good and seems to have power. Is this normal noise? It is very loud. It was completely drained of the ATF type F fluid and I did re fill and drain air from the system… Atlast I think I got it all out. If this is or isn’t normal what would be a fix to quieting it down?
