      caladin replied to the thread engine swap questions.
      Just the starter, and the fact when i put it gear on my sloped driveway, vehicle weight made the engine rotate. after that starter spins it for a bit, then it locks back up so the starter cant' spin..

      Plugs in. I didn't think of hydro lock. I use synthetic but i hadn't' changed the PO oil yet, he did had a shop do it just before i bought it. It was only it's 2nd real drive. last was to the corner store to fill the tank up.

      I mentioned this in a previous thread, I way overheated my 2f when the hose to the oil cooler popped and dumped all the coolant. (like it shut off and oil was smoking on engine, bad. Yes, I'm apparently an idiot.). Engine seizes enough that...

      I fixed my gas gauge! (new sender, old was frozen) It seems like a small thing, but it's the last thing before I was comfortable taking it for a drive out of my neighborhood. I also replaced the dual battery trays with Stainless, pure vanity...

      No issues yet, just saw the hose cracking today. What happens if that one fails?
    • caladin
      The one up front is starting to crack a fair bit along the bulge above bottom hose clamp, and if I was doing 1, why not both. Didn't want to get stranded.

      I need to replace these two hoses, can't find on mega zip. Anyone have part number or a source for decent replacements? I'd rather avoid straight hose for those bends. Between the drivers battery and the air intake for carb, I -think they...

      I got the a few more things done than above, and then paused cause of the cold and kinda never got back to it. She sat for around 2 years. I got the AC mostly resurrected, by throwing money at it. I'm having the circuit breaker issue, tried a...

      I want to put a flat tow bar on my fj60. It was nice to take my Fj40 for test drives, and if something went wrong, just have the wife drive the pickup and bar over, hook it all up and drive home. Wet, they are just under 5k. Wet with some...

      caladin replied to the thread Trail Tailor Offerings.
      I was on a PC, it's working now for me too. I just thought you want to know.
    • caladin
      Does anyone know where to get a new set of brushes for the motor, that's what you swap in a rebuild, correct? Then just clean everything up. I had a bunch of wires in the way of my AC Breaker and couldn't find it, these photos, though actually...

      caladin replied to the thread Fuse panel diagram for an FJ60?.
      I don't know what year it changed, but earlier 60s have this diagram and the AC breaker is up under the dash, not in the fusel box. Mine is an 12/82 and is the early layout. E-

      Check the steering box is still tightly bolted to the chassis rail.. this was the cause of my vague steering - all 4 bolts were loose (found after a full rebuild of both swivel hubs and replacement of all TREs).
