    FJ40 Temperature Gauge Range

    FWIW: On my '77 I have two temp senders and gauges. One is the OEM temp sender & gauge and the other a Sniper temp sender in the block drain. My OEM gauge sits about the first tick-mark, and that is about 185 - 188 on the Sniper read-out. Evey once in a while after driving in the heat, then...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    That is my wife's cousin's truck, and is not your run-of-the-mill 3600. It has a Cummins 12-valve in it. It's just one of many old trucks he has. Now the tan Chevy G30 4x4 van is his son's slow ride to the marina.

    Wanted FJ40 Fire Wall Hand Throttle Bracket as seen below

    I have the dimensions of the bracket, and even bent one. However, the metal I bent wasn't thick enough and I don't have a press to deal with thicker steel. I plan to try and weld a stiffener on it, but haven't messed with it yet.

    Maximum speed can´t be reached

    Yeah, 160KMH, really???......not in mine. I may have had it close to 140KMH once, chasing the infamous @POTATO LAUNCHER & Texas Gang across New Mexico. But that was for a short distance. Now, I have sustained 70/75MPH (120KMH) for 3 to 4 hours on the flat lands, no problem.

    Builds The Architect's '77 FJ40

    Brother, if you were close by, I'd more than be happy to let you take my 40 out for a spin to see for yourself. The power performance is very noticeable right off the bat. Was it worth it? To me it was. I drive mine most days and it performs similar to my Tacoma. Summer time hot starts...
