    The winch is rebuilt and ready to install. The clutch side of this equation is held in by the mount so it is separated at this point. I will get a mount put together in the next few weeks.

    Another FJ40 to FJ45ish Thread

    All parts blasted and ready for reassembly/rebuild. This winch has seen little use but also apparently little care. Looks like it got rebuilt with a hammer at some point. Good lord. It’s 8k, period correct and usable so I’m going with it for now. Actually a pretty impressive gear train. Will...

    Hmmmm.... I wonder why the clutch in this winch is so difficult to operate?

    Tonight’s progress. Got the roll cage lowered into the cab. It was a tight fit with the mounting plates and seat belt retractor mounts but it fit. It can be a nail brighter when you put that much heat to it out of the body and then put it back in.

    Here are the measurements the best way I could figure to get them to you. The main hole for the shaft is a touch over 1/2 inch. I was reminded tonight that the wiper setup mounts into threaded inserts so you will have to add those. Hope this helps.

    I will measure tomorrow night. Just so I know, are you trying to measure to drill new holes through an undrilled windshield frame?

    Starting to get the new wiring harness routed. Long way from home at this point. This is a generic painless wiring harness so some mods are required. I could not find a land cruiser specific harness unfortunately.

    I honestly have no real idea about how much the truck might drop with the extra 1200 pounds. I put my engine into the truck fairly early to get the weight on the frame. Hard to really say but it sounds like you must have a spring over as well so you have a lot of lift any way you cut it. Best...

    Here is the roll cage before paint. For those that wondered about get into the truck you can see the grab handles I mentioned. They work nicely.

    32 inches from the ground to the actual floor board. The roll cage has a grab handle. I just finished welding that up. I’ll post a pic when I take one.

    Test fit for the hard top, doors, etc. things are fitting up just fine thankfully. Next is disassembly of the doors to redo those and then build the internal roll cage.

    A little paint and a test fit for the hood, fenders and front bib. Actually, there were quite a few steps in between here but I figure everyone has seen enough body work pics to last a lifetime. So I didn’t add those here.

    I don't see that I have the part numbers right now but its pretty easy stuff to find. JEGS, Summit and Earls should all have this stuff at decent prices.I used steel AN6 hardware for the line and connected that to an AN6 to 16x1.5mm inverted flare fitting which was identified specifically as a...

    Here is my solution for plumbing the pressure side of the Toyota 3b power steering pump to the later FJ80 power steering box. I could not locate a factory hose for this application so I bought aeroquip hose and the appropriate fittings from Earls and fabricated my own pressure side hose. For...

    I realized there are some details that I probably should have posted as reference related to the modifications to the radiator bracket for use with the FJ80 power steering box. As you can see I had to relieve the radiator bracket and then weld in new support structure. I used 4130 chromoly for...
