    I am installing factory p/s into my 12/79 FJ 40. Can anyone tell me where the cooling lines run? Are any photos available?

    Also, I think I may need the lines from the pump to the box, are these still available?

    Thanks!

    Hey Rick,

    I'm thinking of doing the same thing on my 1/79 FJ-40. Does the new box bolt right in without any modifications?

    Matt,

    The factory box bolts right in, but you will want to swap your factory steering shaft for a p/s version - it is about 1.2" shorter.

    Thanks John. I am still trying to figure our how the cooler lines rest on the frame, and apparently I am a couple of lines short, too. Hope I did not throw them away in the box they came in!!!

    Thanks, Rick. There's not a whole lot of info online regarding this "modifaction". Probably because there's not a whole lot to it. But if you could give us (me) an update and include any useful hints/tips when you're finished, I'd appreciate it.
