      I've changed my oil every 3k miles 3 times now with Amsoil Z-Rod 10-40. The 62 just empirically runs better, smoother, quieter on this synthetic, but I got curious about the actual data on the oil. I'll keep updating as I get lab results...

      I swapped my inline fuses for a regular Blue sea fuse box a few years back without any issues if someone is on the fence.

      Gotcha, thanks. When I have my Redarc DC to DC charging my house battery at 25Amps, I'm getting about 13.6V when driving / higher RPM. I hardly ever see numbers above 14V even when batteries are full and no accessories.

      Above 14V having all those accessories running at idle is normal? If e.g. 13.6V at idle or higher RPM, would that indicate the voltage regulator going belly up or brushes? or?

      FJ Silver replied to the thread Charging Issues.
      First thing to check is the actual voltage of the battery when running and when not running. And the voltage at idle + at 1700rpm. It could be the gauge in the dash, mine acts up sometimes, but I have my actual voltage in an aftermarket gauge...

      Its quite typical for a power steering pump to be noisy when cold, and to improve as the fluid/pump warm up. With regards to your hearing loss, a length of garden hose can be used as a crude stethoscope to track sounds down, put one end near...

      D you have brush kits for the 62 good sir?
    • FJ Silver
      Got it, thank you Do you have the 62 versions of these as well? @ToyotaMatt I'm mainly looking to replace the brushes on my alternator, but having a hard time finding those on eBay.

      DO NOT shop at toyotapartsdeal , you will get your feelings hurt in the process and not understand why ...... i did once and that is not a good feeling .. simply got to your local toyota dealer , show them this , then ask for a discount :

      All of the parts can be found on eBay SimS

      Sounds like you are covered. You might consider even a different new fan clutch…fj80 FCT 049. I replaced my FCT 017 with the 049 & it helped.

      Does anyone know where I could source these? I'd love to replace all of these on my alternator. " if I DIY, here are the parts I'd replace: Front Bearing 6203 Back Bearing 6201 voltage regulator VR-160 brush set JX138 "

      Interesting, thank you. Adding that to my spares "trail repair" kit

      ^^^ that is a good idea. And another is to take it apart and put some silicone paste between the metal heat sink and the transistor. Keep your transistor in the igniter cool to save it. The igniter is NLA from Toyota. If the igniter goes...

      I put some heat sinks on the igniter module that I had laying around to hopefully have it last a little longer. I don't know If it does anything... The coil is so cheap compared to the module.

      This is awesome! Thanks for the link. I have an idea for what I want to do. I'll say in advance, I know full well I could more easily power up with a chevy V8 swap. I'm interested in an all Toyota powerplant. Here is my big Idea. My 88...

      the 60 tank and 62 tank are the same dimensionally outside the 62 pump mounts to a bracket that drops into the top of the tank and is attached with a bolt flange to the top of the tank the pump location is in the same location as the 60 series...

      honestly i don’t think there’s much more toughness of a 62 that a 60. even with gusseted axles etc i’m not sure i can say i’ve ever hear of a 60 axle housing bending. they are just stout anyway! the 62 gained some creature comforts which seems...

      Hah that's awesome. I was lucky purchasing one with a fresh trans rebuild as well, bought the 62 for $3k. Biggest cooler you can fit + something like Delvac ATF will make these trans last as long as the rest of the cruiser.

      I do find the 62 has quite a different character, driving it, comparing to the 60. To each their own kinda thing. I kinda like the automatic. Its an Achilles heel that is easily fixed with some beefy Derale cooling.

      I highly recommend a long range tank. If you do any camping/off roading having e.g. 40 gallons and 400-500 miles range is such peace of mind. Mine uses the OEM fuel pump, but the bracket holding the pump is extended and I installed an...

      Every week/other week I drive my FJ62 offroad, exploring Utah, alone. I just never have issues... hours and hours of corrugations, long mountain climbs, flexing like a sick giraffe in Moab, UT. It just keeps going at almost 300k miles. I do take...

      My son has brought his 60 series on some of the longest, most remote and demanding tracks in Australia with me.. Here is his beige HJ60 parked next to my HJ47 at the start of the Canning Stock Route.. 2000+ klms of the worst corrugations and...

      I boiled my cylinder head, bell housing, and transmission crossmember for Christmas. Still need to do the lower block and a few other parts. Then I’ll zap the rust with an electrolysis tank. Actually, kinda fun!

      New H55F in place. All of the heavy stuff is done and now its just piecing the small things back together, cleaning up oily deposits, etc.
