    5.3LS cam swap options?

    I'm doing a mild rebuild on a 2005 5.3LS before I drop it in my '78 FJ40. I'm planning on a new cam, and am leaning toward one of the Elgin "sloppy stage II" cams that can be had on the cheap. Has anyone used one of these cams? They offer about 3 different grinds, all with differing...

    Leafspring lengths FJ40 vs FJ60 for SOA

    I'm working on collecting parts for an SOA on my '78 FJ40. The current springs on the 40 look like a collection of mismatched springs from other vehicles put together by a blind man with his feet. I have access to a full set of stock '84 FJ60 springs that are in good condition. I know that the...

    Chevy 350 Swap Reliability??

    With LS engines having been around for 20 years now, Id bet you'd have just as easy of a time finding an LS3 serpentine belt in a small town NAPA as you would for an SBC. And both will be easier to find than any 40 year old 2F.

    Chevy 350 Swap Reliability??

    I see you're in Washington, so I don't know what your local prices are like, but I see complete LS engines every day on Craigslist for less than $1000 here in Nebraska. I paid $300 for my L33 5.3LS complete with ECM. I had to pull it, and that saved me $200. I'll end up paying more for the...

    Builds The Sheepdog this thing is hairy! july 1977 blue fj40

    Are you happy with the results of the Eastwood Chassis Black. My FJ40 is coming apart to do the LS engine swap and I'd like to use that product on mine. Did you spray it or brush it? You went over Eastwood's rust converter?

    Removing tub...is cross-bracing needed?

    I'm getting ready to pull the tub off the frame on my '78 FJ40. I have the stock roll bar out of it too. My question: Should I cross-brace the tub before removing it since the cage is out? Or is it stiff enough to stay straight?

    FJ60 steering with flipped FJ60 springs (78 FJ40)

    I posted this in the FJ40/FJ55 forum but got no feedback. Maybe it'll work here. I'm working on my '78 FJ40. Laying out power steering. I have an '84 FJ60 steering box. I'm planning on a SOA using flipped FJ60 springs. Am I going to run into fitment issues? I'm assuming I'll need to relocate...

    FJ60 power steering with flipped FJ60 springs.

    I'm working on my '78 FJ40. Laying out power steering. I have an '84 FJ60 steering box. I'm planning on a SOA using flipped FJ60 springs. Am I going to run into fitment issues? I'm assuming I'll need to relocate shock towers (F250?). If the towers are moved forward with the spring flip, will...

    Making early rear reflector instructions

    I love reading these posts from the hardcore restoration guys, even though its not my thing. You guys are meticulous. I dated a girl in highschool whose dad restored '57 Bel Airs. He had a rubber stamp made so that he could stamp the heater hoses every 8" with the original script that was used...
