      If you read through post 42 in this thread you'll find the dimensions and positions of the pads that were on my '73. I stuck my replacement pads to the tank instead of the floor but in the same position they would be on the floor.

      B y r o n replied to the thread Rear Axle Bearings & Seals. Did I Mess Something Up?.
      Maybe a small amount of debris fell into the bearing. You can try blowing it with compressed air to remove but be careful not to dislodge the spring on the seal. In all likely-hood it just is a little snug and after the inner is pressed on see...

      B y r o n replied to the thread Rear Axle Bearings & Seals. Did I Mess Something Up?.
      What did you use to install the bearings? If you just tried driving them in with a hammer, it is possible you got lucky on the passenger side. The drivers side cage may have been slightly deformed. Does this mean it won't work or last, only...

      B y r o n replied to the thread Gloss or Satin paint?.
      It has held up fine. Like most paints, preparation is key to the final product. With areas like the frame that can't be thoroughly cleaned I hit them with Rust Reformer before applying the top coat.

      What is it about the KO2's that you're trying to improve upon? Looking for better mileage/wear, more traction, better road handling or just want to change the look? Then it boils down to how much you are willing/able to spend to try and achieve...

      I think it has been pointed out a few times that disc brakes require more fluid volume than drum brakes. It might be time for a 4 wheel disc master cylinder.

      B y r o n replied to the thread Is the coil supposed to electrocute me?.
      Electricity will ALWAYS seek the path of least resistance! Having been the recipient of a 40,000 volt coil jolt, it is a shocking experience. Lucky that the amps are extremely low. :)

      If you can figure out a mounting location for this you shouldn't have to modify anything on the gas tank.

      You might find some useful info here.

      You didn't mention if you are using the factory gear box or some other gear box, that information may be helpful. You can also try measuring from the under dash mount through the firewall to get a rough idea.

      Maybe this will help.

      Looking at what you have I'd say start with a new fuel pump and see how it improves the running. With all the work done to keep it stock I'd say you may need to rejet the carb since it runs better when cold than warm. Keeping all the emissions...

      B y r o n replied to the thread Undercoating. Ugh..
      You might want to investigate Dustless Blasting. Because water is involved there is no risk of warped panels from the heat created with standard blasting. Since you don't know the type of original undercoating the correct chemical stripper...

      B y r o n replied to the thread Front axle castor shims.
      I'd want more information about the extent of the crack. Did it crack in line with the pin hole? Did it crack on only one side or both? Also, how do you expect to drive the vehicle?

      Why not just buy the spacer from City Racer!

      B y r o n replied to the thread FJ40 brake fluid reservoir empty.
      Since brake boosters don't have fluid in them tells me your master cylinder is leaking.

      The information here should help with the distributor.

      Have you done some electrical work recently? Is this the only light on the vehicle that you are having problems with?

      B y r o n replied to the thread Just a little corrosion.
      From what I can see I'd say it is time to pull it and find a shop that can either rebuild or if to bad put it out of its' misery!

      It is all alignment. Try and get the transmission face and bellhousing surface parallel. There is usually a little bit of an angle so you will need to raise the trans when pushing it in. Then slide the trans forward, jacking when necessary...

      To make it a better comparison you need both pictures to be with the rims mounted.

      Was it originally imported from South America? You might try looking up non-US parts.

      B y r o n replied to the thread FJ40 Aftermarket Spare Tire Carrier Manufacturer?.
      Can't tell from the picture but it looks like the top collar on the pin is the only thing keeping it on. See if it has a set screw or two keeping it in place. If it does then chances are the tire carrier can then be lifted off the pivot pin.
