      If I had a 2f I would run it. I did not have one and went with a ls 5.3 and it is awesome in the fun department

      I always forget to wear gloves with POR15 the first time I start using it. It literally gets into the skin and won’t come out. I scrubbed and scrubbed. Going out to dinner. I’m a menace.

      I have the side cover off so no worries on loosing the copper feed line nut. I did undo one end and ran the drill, but never got any oil. Possibly did not run it long enough.

      One for a 64 are the same until 1980. You can still get these from Toyota as well.

      Can also remove the copper tube from the rocker assembly and see how much oil is flowing. Just be sure to secure the nut from slipping down the hole in the head. It can continue down into the block. The nut is made of brass and magnetic wouldn't...

      Just to close this out: First, thanks to all of you who chimed in with suggestions. Second, we ended up pulling back out (for the 4th time 🤦🏻‍♂️) the box that we “rebuilt” and sending it to Redhead for a proper expert inspection and rebuild...

      Gave the possible replacement motor a compression check today. I bolted the flywheel, bell housing and starter on. Place the motor on a wood block and had the hoist holding it from above. I jumped the starter with the LX, while spinning the...

      Needed to install the booster and master cylinder in order to test fit the newly bent firewall brake lines. Looks pretty good all back together, but needs to come back off in order to treat/paint the proportioning valve (I think that’s what it’s...

      Upholstery shops are typically less expensive than you think. They can completely make seat covers using your old ones as a pattern. They have swatches of fabric, vinyl, and leather you can choose from. Basically you are cutting out the middle...

      Yup. It also has a 2F carb, distributor, alternator and oil cooler. It all looks factory and if you didn't know better you'd swear it is.

      Looks like someone added an oil fill to that valve cover.

      For those that don’t meander into tire tech area, the truck received new wheels/tires today. Kanati 35x10.5r15s, these and oem steelies weigh much less than 31s with split rims, significant improvement. So far even with these wheels/tires, h42...

      All the brake hard lines were removed from the 40 and used them as templates to bend up new lines. We decided to use a NiCopp brake line at the recommendation of many on this forum and bought a mid range priced flaring tool that had decent...

      I’ve been working on this baby for some time. I have finally decided to post my journey. First the history. I first bought her back in 1978. A March, 1973, Rustic Green FJ40. Here’ a pic on our wedding day of her being decorated before we took...

      I have a 1982 FJ45 Troopy and a 1992 FZJ75 Troopy that just arrived from the Middle East. I still need to go over them and ID any punch list items I want to wrap up, but they are for sale. Hit me up in DM if interested…
