    There's also an under bonnet shot floating around somewhere  that makes Photoman's engine bay look positively barren.

    Man! &nbsp:Does this rig have plastic lined seats to protect them from the poo that will "inertia" itself out of your body when you hit the juice?

    Hope he doesn't post here soon complaining about mpg.

    I could be wrong, but I get the feeling, that money is not an issue whatsoever! :eek:

    C-Dan,

    I did.

    They machined the block and the head to extremely tight tolerances; so tight in fact that the engine is assembled with *no* head gasket.

    C-Dan, the 2 row aluminum is more efficient.

    Rick,

    I prefer the 3 row brass one. ::) But, I also drink cheap beer :urinate: I agree that the 2 row radiator is more efficent..............at creating brown goop in the bottom :ugh:

    But, and here's the big one, :givecrap: what I prefer?

    C-Dan, just posting out my ass....bored!

    My e-brake parts ended up wrong. They gave me FJ80 parts which has rear drums. Then when I got back in there the parts book identifies 2 possibilities for the FZJ80s. I might be reassembling with the original parts if we got the wrong ones so we can still go camping this weekend. If your bored tomorrow could you take a look at the arms that attach to the e-brake cable at the backing plate and pull against the brake lever inside. I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Thanks Dan. I don't have the entire number but I do remember that the difference between the two sets was in the last 2 digits. One set ended in 21 and the other in 22. He ordered the 22s
