    Winch Restoration

    Many folks run a larger pin or bolt. Just be aware what you're really risking by doing so. I'd start small and work up if you need it. If the housing were mine I'd put some JB in the cracks and try to resize it and close the cracks. Welding it and turning the inside is a good option too but may...

    Winch Restoration

    Not being critical, but be aware: Your current yoke, shaft and pin has been modified, the older shear pins are 4mm. 5/16" (.313") is smaller than 8mm (.315") and will fit loosely in a hole for an 8mm. The caliper picture seems to indicate between .324" and .325" diameter for your pin? A loose...

    Winch Restoration

    I wouldn't bother removing that bushing unless you are convinced it's worn way out of spec. It looks like you are deep enough to decide what you want to do with the crack. The wire rope had jumped the drum and pinched the seal area. It appears the crack is in the area of the step in the inner...

    '62 FJ40 in the Netherlands

    Curious on the fuel line spec? The Tygon I've used has a smaller outside diameter than original and is a challenge to get the collet to work.

    Land Cruiser Parts Catalogs

    Dan, Depending on how you acquired it and whether you intend on ultimately keeping it, you will want to do your absolute best to preserve the condition (do not bend the binding). The value to an automotive literature collector is completely out of line with the value to us "enthusiasts"...

    FJ25 Chat Thread

    Talk about freaks......................my eyes went right to the '56 Rambler station wagon, miracle that thing was still drivable at 10+ years old. And what's with all the VW's, was that typical of that area?

    Early Soft Top Door Skinning

    Looking good. I don't think I ever put bumpers in........probably still running a nylon tie in that hole. After all the canvak I put on mine and nine years of dirt my doors look an oily shop rag (patina).

    The hole would be mounted over the inspection plate on the drum so you could check brake linings w/o removing wheel.
