Alright, I finally was able to get a video of the engine running.
Turns out I had a couple issues with the pump and got that sorted. Bunch of new internal parts (list of about 20 different pieces on the invoice).
Here is a video of it running now, WAY better, and still need a few more things...
Thanks, yea looks like my timing looks good. One thing I just noticed now is that the old injector nozzles have the whole almost two times bigger than the new ones I have. And now that I remember, right before the overhaul I had black smoke which was excess of fuel.
Thanks! Yea, the white smoke continues after the engine is warm so I don't think it could be an issue with the piston rings or cylinder glazing but will keep that in mind if it continues.
The smoke was noticeably less before the new injector nozzles and calibration so perhaps the timing on the...
Hi all, hoping to learn and troubleshoot all the white smoke coming out of the exhaust on my B engine.
Just did an engine overhaul, replaced glow plugs, replaced the nozzles on the injectors and sent them all to be calibrated.
We turn it on and there's so much white smoke we had to put a towel...
Just picked up an 82' FJ60 in Central America and realized it doesn't have front locking hubs or disc brakes.
Previous owner said he bought it like that from factory.
Front hubs seem to be locked at all times as well.
Anyone know if this was one of the options for some of these older models?
Thanks, are both feed and return lines connected to the same fitting by the water pump?
Or is that just a return?
Curious to know where the line that feeds the heater is connected. I saw a picture somewhere that mentions a fitting in the back side of the engine on the same side as the water pump.
Hi all, I've been trying to look for some diagrams or threads where I can see a picture of how the heater lines are setup for a Toyota B engine or a similar B series engine.
My BJ40 doesn't have a heater and looking into adding one for the cold months.
Any help would be appreciated.
Has anyone ever heard of Fridayparts.com?

I also found these on Amazon. Surprisingly, one being $1k more than the other..
Alright, I was finally able to get the 80 into a gravel road yesterday. Started driving in an 8 figure for about 10 minutes until the center diff lock light FINALLY came on. After it came up I turned the front and rear ones and instantly the lights went solid. I tested them out again later that...
Only front and back a couple feet, but I had the rear diff light flashing at the same time. No luck there.
Should I try a longer drive? 100ft in a straight line?
I don't think it has been used ever so could be a reason why the light does not come up. But it is odd because I hear the motor...
Hi all, I am trying to troubleshoot the diff lock light not turning on in my dash.
When I put the T-Case in 4L, I hear it clicking but not motor noise.
No Center Diff Lock light and no ABS light on.
Today I got into the dash and I connected the Center Diff connection to the Hazard light...
