    Frakenhead 82 2F

    I have a 1982 Fj40 with a 2F. I discovered during the course of replacing the head gasket, that the head is a prior year, open-chamber design. My pistons are flat-top, which makes this a stupid PO low-compression setup :( I can confirm that my block is an 1982. I purchased a closed-chamber...

    Leaking Distributor Vacuum Advance Canister?

    Dizzy: Wow, that's close, but indeed my 40 is a CA spec, and registered in CA...... Your ebay link does at least give me a new avenue to search; i'll poke around and see if there's a listing with a closer fit. Thanks! The folks at Vacuum Advance Diaphragms & Rare Parts / Advance Diaphragm...

    Leaking Distributor Vacuum Advance Canister?

    Thanks for the suggestions and links, Danny. I'll be checking them out. I'll say though, that I really want to stay the OEM route, as that is what I've done throughout this truck build. I know the OEM canister is NLA, and the used route is suboptimal. But I'm thinking (hoping) that sometime...

    Leaking Distributor Vacuum Advance Canister?

    Hi. I just completed rebuilding the distributor on the fully-smogged 2f in my 82 FJ40. In doing so, I determined the governor weights were binding up on old sludge/grease that lubricates the weights where they move along the signal rotor. Other addressed issues: 1. The Dist. also had the...

    82 FJ40 AC Amplifier Issues

    Thanks for the leads! I'll start investitgating loom capatibility, and it sounds like the relay sourcing will be easier than I thought. I've spent the free cycles of the last day developing a plan for how to systematically narrow down blue/red connection candidates. Damn frustrating....

    82 FJ40 AC Amplifier Issues

    Thanks Brett and Jim. RE: coil question. Yeah, I do not have continuity from the the coil negative; I was at first suspicious of this, but in my checking further along the circuit, I do have continuity from the distributor to the main harness side of the amp, so I've been assuming that the...

    82 FJ40 AC Amplifier Issues

    Thanks Brett and Jim for your responses! Brett: I'm glad to know that the switching ground is actually part of the design. The issue I'm having with the it, is that if I have 12V supplied to the Amp via "X" in Fig. 2., the ground on the Amplifier circuit-side via the bullet, *looses* ground...

    82 FJ40 AC Amplifier Issues

    Hi. I have a Feb. 1982 FJ40 with an OEM Nippondenso AC evaporator and a 12V AC Amplifier. The PO had undertaken several mods to make the AC system operational and I’m now in the process of getting the system back to its stock configuration. I’ve made several fixes, but am now stuck, and I’m...
