      bikersmurf replied to the thread FJ40 OEM or like roll bar.
      I’m kicking myself for parting with my half decent long jump seats 17 years ago. Unfortunately only hindsight is 20:20. It would fit perfectly with my current family cage and allow seating for 6. However, the TJ seat will fit like a glove and...

      bikersmurf replied to the thread Replacing 1974 Booster.
      When I installed an 80 series booster and master I’d have liked to have a spacer but couldn’t find a Vin of a Toyota pickup that came with one… and the dealer didn’t have a way to look one up without it (or so they claimed). I did make it work...

      The glass shop glued one of my mirrors on using marine grade silicone. After 20+ years I’ve cracked one of my convex mirrors. Now I have to decide if I replace it or finally go to flat glass… for now I’m ignoring the crack.

      It’ll be interesting to see how it works out, I suspect you’re right… in this day the fittings and pipe would cost you the $115 or close enough that, if you assign any value to your time you’re $$$ ahead just buying the setup.

      Fedex just dropped this off. Kindof an experiment, Mel's wanted to try aquaponics for ages out in the pond when I eventually build a dock. That vevor site had this on sale for 115 bucks. Maybe you could make it for that, but I doubt it...

      Ahhhh much better. The sills are in excellent condition. Same with the bottom of the hard top. Floor pans are going to be the last of the fabricating to do. But for now its all pleasure baby! Cruising with free fuel, ahhh life is good!

      My bad… I was thinking about it all wrong. You’re correct. Please go with what he stated I was thinking about it backwards.

      it looks like you have a front spring on the rear and a rear spring on the front?

      Shims thick to the front would reduce caster which would increase wander and dartiness. I believe thick should go to the back if they are needed at all. FYI, your centre arm was removed with a Saginaw P/S conversion.

      I’d align your toe in. I suspect as the weight shifts the path the outer wheel is travelling is different from the inner wheel. Google search pushpin alignment an you’ll find how easy it is to do it yourself.

      Cool looking rig, I'd like to see more of it. I've got fender skirts just like his. I never got around to bending up the tubing I have to make a set fenders like his. I may yet... for now the crack whore fenders are covering the front wheels.

      It would seem you'll need to make a sacrifice of a young virgin to appease them... it may be much harder to do now since the last 40 series in North America was built in '84.

      bikersmurf replied to the thread Vehicle pricing trend?.
      Given a two bedroom two bedroom rancher just sold in a few days for close to a million dollars (and it’s like one of the cheaper homes in town), I’d not hold your breath that it’ll drop much. Gas prices have doubled, and everything is getting...

      Couple thoughts… 1) be certain the latches on your kickout windows are fully latched. I had my kickout windows partially open when I had some helpers lift it off. In the process one of them pushed the window closed… when we lifted the roof off...

      There’s a check valve there so it could impact when you smell fumes. I believe you’d only smell fumes when the pressures were right.

      I’ve since replaced it, but in about ‘91 I repaired mine that broke there with a male-male hose coupler to replace the broken off piece. Glued it up with ‘Seal All” and had no more vapour leaks. 5 or 10 years later I came across one that wasn’t...

      I think every cruiser head on the island already knows where he lives. Even some dirty mainlanders:lol:

      I believe in this case front brakes based on previous post, but that could be wrong.

      Not on a 40 series... there are no better E-Brakes. Sorry, I'll have to fix that... No E-Brake is better. I think I remember a few days when my E-brake held well. But in all seriousness, there are limitations to a driveshaft E-Brake on an...

      I'm not saying they're not worth a fortune... I did sell my first set of cruiser headrests for $195 USD... and that was 20 years ago. I can only imagine where the bidding would go on the next set I list for $2.
