    Years spent in the saltwater sailing world certainly taught me to respect the power of galvanic corrosion. With the 80 and our other cars I have just taken to keeping the coolant fresh and non-conductive but I'm glad to add a belt with those...

    I just ordered one from Napa. Make sure you get the one that looks like the bottom one, except I took off the cork gasket I ordered the top one from amazon and they said it was for the a442f but has an extra opening. Wit this said, I am...

    So yes it’s a metal mesh filter and doesn’t really need to be changed. Model I’m dealing with is a A442f. Took it off to replace the solenoids. Looking at the filter it still looks good and doesn’t look like there is any gunk on it and am...

    I’ve installed/removed Both front/rear 3rd member from my chest, pulled the rear axle out to replace it with a locked one on a grade, And stopped a rolling car before it hit a bus full of nuns..... but I’ll use an engine hoist. Thank you all...

    I sat my head on a 1x12 on the drivers side, wiggled one foot down to the frame rail behind the ac compressor and the other foot on the cross member under the removed radiator. I picked the head up and gently sat it on the alignment pins. No...

    Well I think I just got it fixed. After the diff oil change I raised the front end up in the air and turned the locker on and saw if the tires locked when trying to rotate and they did. Then unlocked and both spun counter of each other as...

    We use a technique similar to this:

    yeah that’s what I did. Not pretty but functional. Just send me a new set for my other FZJ80 94 and we’ll call it square. :p

    Engine hoist and a leveler make it a LOT easier. Pulling it is not that big a deal but reinstalling it requires a bit of finesse.

    I'm not a big guy (actually the opposite) but I removed my hood and air filter assembly and sat in there and pulled/placed my head by myself (lap to block, heavy but not terribly difficult.) I'd do it the same way next time, pulling the hood is...
  • cybrstar
    I ordered an FZJ80 for my 93. Is this bracket correct @eimkeith ? The rear has a V notch on the back and mine is flat. I order the fZJ80.

    Man, the hood must weigh just as much as the head itself. :rofl: That could shed off 50lbs if anyone made a carbon fiber hood.

    I couldn't agree more. I did my '92 FJ80 head gasket last year. I removed the head with much difficulty by using blocks and plywood to lift the head over the radiator. It was time consuming and could have caused real damage. I got a cherry...

    So using a Cherry Picker removing the hood is not necessary?

    I've done it twice alone and I have a cherry picker in the garage. I felt it was easier and I had more control by just lifting it in place. If you've removed the intake manifold it's not hard. I didn't remove the hood either, but I did set some...

    If you are going to do it alone, get a cherry picker. No matter how strong you are, there is precision involved that you can't get by just muscling it. I've done a head job twice by myself. Both times I used a hoist.
