    Bought a new end kit from Kurt. Might as well do it while I have the thing apart. Its going to take me a while to clean off all the crud on there anyway. Thanks again

    That's where the cotter pin goes, rotate the camera angle 90* and you would be looking at the hole.

    I would not prime or paint it, when it flakes off where will the paint end up? It is going to be pretty much immersed in oil anyway so why bother.

    Measurements are approximate as this spacer was not perfectly round as its split (manufactured that way, not a crack).

    I would suggest the next place to look is the neutral safety switch, it may be failing and it won't be the first that I have seen cause this symptom.

    You cannot expect help for an electrical problem, especially an intermittent one, by feeding us one piece of information at a time. Why not put the complete details in the first post? If you get tired of putting the information in every first...

    When did a '74 FJ40 get a neutral safety switch? It doesn't show up on the factory wiring diagrams that I have access to. Have you looked at the wires going to and from this switch and the switch itself? I would do as @John McVicker and...

    Thank you guys for the help. I was assuming the original wires had a ground and looks like I made an a$$ out of me. I did not add a ground and the diagrams and pictures all helped a lot . I was able to complete the new ignition with no melting or...

    It’s not a spare. I didn’t realize there were 2 lights. One illuminates the dash knobs. The other illuminates the heater controls.

    Please do not hook up a ground to your ignition switch. You will most likely melt your wiring harness and possibly burn your vehicle to the ground. Do you not have a wiring diagram? The AM terminal is connected to the ammeter circuit using the...

    Just take out the two screws and see if the light bulb is good and it is plugged in. Very easy thing to do. You could even do a voltage check...make sure the head light switch is fully counter clockwise (anticlockwise for our friends.)

    I have Roundeyes in mine also, and they are a vast improvement over stock, especially with a supplemental headlight wiring harness. But if/when they ever go out, I'm buying City Racer's LED lights.

    There are several grounds you'll want to have a look at. Battery to engine, battery to frame, starter to frame, body to frame... those are just a few that I have or can think of off the top of my head. Not sure if/where the headlight switch or...

    Well if you do drive around and still look like a douchebag it won't be the cruiser's fault:grinpimp: I was surprised how windy it is with the windshield down.

    Oh... I forgot one thing. WELCOME to Mud!!! If you post a picture of your FJ40 please make sure the bezel is on right side up. The bezel police frown a lot on them being upside down.:bounce:

    Is it high and low beams that do not work or just the high or low beams. Add the selector switch into the mix if it is just one of them that works. Check the fuse, using a multimeter, too.
