    Twisted off spark plugs

    Thought I'd follow up on the resolution - tried everything I was comfortable with (heat, cold, various penetrants), no luck. Finally pulled the head, took it to a machinist, had it back in an hour, no issues, threads cleaned and chased with the correct tap. Out of pocket $60 for the...

    Wanted FJ40 OEM power steering parts

    I have the unobtainium power steering box casting, if you are interested. I bought two, when I did my conversion, several years back, thinking I'd do another, someday. New, in the Toyota wrappings. Plus, I've done this conversion on my 1982 Fj40, and can walk you through it, plus I can make...

    Wanted Air Injection Manifold/Rail for 1982 2FE

    And kudos to Mark for supplying a very good part - a five minute pickle in Kleen-strip to remove the surface rust revealed as nice an air injection manifold as I'd expect to see, ever. Thanks, Mark!

    For Sale 2UZ-FE Exhaust Manifolds, LH and RH, New [OR]

    I have a pair of OEM exhaust manifolds for a 1998 through 4/2005 LX-470 or Toyota Landcruiser with the 2UZ-FE engine. They are new in the factory box. I bought these for a 2000 LX-470 I owned that had the notorious cracked exhaust manifold problem, but was out of warranty. Never installed...

    Wanted Air Injection Manifold/Rail for 1982 2FE

    Need a complete and serviceable Air Injection Manifold (17306-61021) for a later 2FE. If you've de-smogged an August, 1980 through September of 1983 2FE (FJ-40 or FJ-60), you have what I want. Can also use a couple of the Air Injection Unions (90404-14329), if you have them. Kirk

    Twisted off spark plugs

    PO failed to put anti-seize on the spark plugs, so the rear three snapped at the gasket seat. :censor: Might have been the plug design, too, as the Champion plugs are notably thin at that point, with a sharp inside shoulder. Stress riser, anyone?:bang: Was able to pull the electrodes...

    Source for BFG 33x9.5x15

    Here's a thought - last time this happened, I was able to source a set from, of all places, Costco! It was a special order (i.e., not locally stocked), but they were already in the Costco system. They look great, but you will need a small lift to clear the rear fenders in the front, if you...
