    Aftermarket Fuel Pump or OEM?

    Pull the pump assembly out to see if the pump well has trash in it that may cause the pump screen to get blocked?

    1991 FJ80 Overheated, no start

    If the cooling system (pump, hoses, radiator) overheated and BLEW UP, it can certainly cause a lot of steam/smoke. BTDT! Clean it up. Do a compression test. If OK, then replace the damaged goods. Fan and fan clutch should be OKK unless physically damaged.

    Aftermarket Fuel Pump or OEM?

    Does not sound like a fuel pump problem. Pump does not know which way you are steering.

    1FZ-FE Rebuild w /Aftermarket Parts?

    I have the Felpro H G on mine. I had a valve problem to deal with. The Felpro does have the smaller, round water passage holes behind #6. My engine has 255000 on it. P O installed the S C around 50000. I did HG at 180000. Still runs fine, and I flog mine to redline frequently! I would not...

    Fzj80 ob2 Bluetooth scanner

    I had the Ultra but it faded out so I got a Scangauge II. Seems to be holding up in the AZ sun. I mounted it on the dash and run it full time. I don't need to look for it or interrupt a call to see it. I have 2 gauges on the A pillar and everything is easy to see.

    Head Gasket Replacement *(2 Years Overdue)

    I usually get those last2 bolts by reaching under the exhaust manifold. It's a trick that ToolsRUs taught me.

    4x4Labs bumper swingout rattle

    Might be hard to tell from the pic I posted, but my latch sits at a 45 degree angle pulling the swing arm both down onto a Rilson landing pad anforward against a 1.5" tall anchor welded onto the deck. Kinda tucks it both directions.

    tire question

    We have about 2500 miles of trail, not roads, in the Tonto. Must be a few good ones in there somewhere? Most. Folks complain about street/highway performance with sockers over 37s. They can't understand that you can shift down manually and push the rpm up over 4000.. mine sees 4500+ in...

    Exactly. Some moly grease brands separate more than others.

    Most of these rigs that wheel hard are running the low range underdrive gear set.

    Sideview mirror can't stay open

    Our shop has a different way of fixing the mirrors. We made a couple custom tools for it, but it doesn't require a lot of extra parts.

    Gearing option w/ OEM lockers

    Well, kinda. Lift allows for wheel travel. Upward travel We usually do a 4" lift for 37s. I am on 4" and 1" spring spacers, custom sway bar drops, and 2.5" bump stop spacers. When I am totally crossed up in the rocks I get a wee bit of rub in the top of my reat fenderwells, but no...

    tire question

    When I bought my rig it had 315s over 4.88s. So more rpm at a given speed than after I went to 37s. I did not notice any change in oil consumption when my average rpm dropped. We always do valve stem seals with every H G job. In about a dozen of these the oil consumption has dropped...
