    So I'll try this again. I have a '69 FJ40 & a recently purchased '72 FJ55. I'm wondering which 55 parts are interchangeable with the 40. If anyone knows of a list or what would work let me know please.

    which parts r you interested in? electrical? body? drivetrain?
    found out the EGR port on the header in a 40 is smaller then the EGR in a 55 :bang:

    Basically, the engine, transmission, transfer case, and axles are the same. I would guess that all the emissions are the same for any given year, but I would be curious to see if the header has the same part number, as per 91 4runner's note. John

    Hi All:

    Some 55 parts will work on a 40, but many will not.

    For example, the water pump on '77 FJ55 is longer than the water pump on a '76 FJ40. It may be a similar issue with early 1970s FJ40s and 55s.

    Good luck!
