      @jblatz posted photos of the plate mounted to the right side fender, next to the battery. The VIN plate on the A pillar I mentioned, above, looks like this:

      Your 1971 VIN plate would look like this. This example is from a 72 but the same plate was used for several years prior. The Model and Frame No. information is engraved on the plate. There are several sellers on eBay that offer reproduction...

      21st century version of curb feelers.😛 I imagine @JackA would say ‘you can always grind it off’ :meh:

      AFAIK, those details weren't included on the VIN plate attached to the driver's A pillar on USA models. Search for @ToyotaMatt and vin plates. He used to offer them, and his thread may have pictures for 1971 (and related) VIN plates.

      Looking back at your photo of the coil, it's apparent you have copious amounts of non-OEM wiring. Most advice from this forum ASSUMES you have stock wiring. What is that red rectangular box (in your photo) connected to? Is it stock for your...

      IMO, counting on a ground to a painted fender on a 40 year old truck, bolted to a frame with (typically) corroded fasteners, with a sketchy ground path back to the battery, should be reconsidered.

      It could be the relay, but in my experience it's always the grounds that cause blinker issues.

      I believe non terminally electrocuted is called "shocked"
    • 73FJ40
      The word is derived from "electro" and "execution" and came into use just before New York instituted the electric chair. electrocute ĭ-lĕk′trə-kyoo͞t″ transitive verb To kill with electricity. To execute (a person sentenced to death) by means...

      @mark248am If you had been electrocuted, only your next of kin would have been able to post about how your met your demise.

      I am in the process of replacing all of my water hoses (main, oil cooler, heater, etc...) so I have my battery/tray/alternator/bracketry out of the way. The truck (1/80 '40) has 50K miles on it and was running great until I noticed the fuel pump...

      I am a fan of the Pertronix ignition. Which distributor do you have? A stock distributor in '74 might be a vacuum retard. Which i am not a fan of. If i was you, i might call Mark A. In Burbank, Ca. And order one of his rebuilt '69 vacuum advance...

      @cruiseroutfit (Cruiser Outfitters) has them. Note that different locations use different gaskets, steel or aluminum. Best to keep that in mind. http://www.cruiseroutfitters.com/engineparts.html

      The "original" benefit of an external resistor on a coil was to allow for the resistor to be bypassed during starting, to get better voltage to the coil. The starter draws a lot of current when energized, and battery voltage can drop by a volt...

      73FJ40 replied to the thread 1971 FJ40 Positive Ground System?.
      @MrBG The fusible link is an excellent long term device, but the reason I suggested a regular old 20 amp fuse is that it will 'Pop" instantly on a short, and they're a lot cheaper than a fusible link. Hopefully, it won't come into play. Good...

      73FJ40 replied to the thread 1971 FJ40 Positive Ground System?.
      The OP discovered his positve battery cable was connected to the frame, and the negative cable to the starter. Since he was unfamilar with FJ40's (foreign vehicle), his question was to determine the proper convention. Note that back in early...

      73FJ40 replied to the thread 1971 FJ40 Positive Ground System?.
      @MrBG "I suggest you consider wiring a 20 amp fuse in SERIES with (I believe for 1971) your wire coming from the ammeter (possibly a white 10 gauge wire) so that if something wants to short out with the cables switched, the fuse will save your...

      73FJ40 replied to the thread 1971 FJ40 Positive Ground System?.
      No FJ40 at least since 1969 (and likely forever) has been positive ground from the factory. Since I have no idea how much the PO changed things, your guess is better than mine on swapping back. A clue for the reason may be like you said, the...

      Move out of California. That's the easiest solution for probably a bunch of problems.

      The park switch on the motor provides the ground to keep the motor running until it reaches the park position where it switches and applies 12v to the low speed brush to brake the motor. Since your motor is stopping when you turn off the wipers...

      Yes, I checked as well, it's NLA. I acquired this several years ago when I decided to do a full restoration.

      @Curtice These are parts correct for my 1973 FJ40. For reference, attached are pictures of the OEM hatch handle and OEM hatch pin with their respective dimensions. The pins and holes in the handle are identical for both sides. NOTE THAT my...
