      I believe you can create custom "rules" in the Sniper configuration to turn a "warning output" on if certain things happen. For example, if the engine gets too hot, you could have it turn the "Warning Output" on. So you can hook it up to the...

      I think what he's trying to say, is that the Holy Sniper doesn't support a check engine light. I think the people using TBI and LS swaps could use this though.

      Lead Head replied to the thread Fj 62 question.
      3FEs are normally a little loud. On my 3FE, the main source of noises are the rocker arms and the injectors. When my 3FE is fully warmed at idle, the rocker noise goes almost completely away, and the only thing are hear are the injectors. "fully...

      Lead Head replied to the thread FJ62's Overheating. Several of us don't know why..
      260 is pretty warm on the transmission. Likely indicates your fan clutch isn't doing what it's supposed to be doing and the coolant isn't getting cooled effectively by the time it reaches the bottom of the radiator.

      Lead Head replied to the thread Piston rings are toast?.
      That is not blow by. Blow by is combustion gas that gets passed the piston rings, and comes out the engine breather (or PCV valve). That is water and carbon coming out of your exhaust. Water is normal, as every liter of gas or diesel you burn...

      You need to be more descriptive. In what situation does it feel like this? What are you doing? What speeds are you at?

      Lead Head replied to the thread Windshield replacement pricing.
      When I had my windshield done about 9-10years ago, it was around $225 USD installed on the East Coast. They even came to my house to do it.

      FWIW, the governor will work quite well as a cruise control.

      When operating PTO driven accessories, such as a water pump, it may be necessary to raise engine speed. Most 60 series have a throttle knob that allows you to set a higher idle, but they just pull on the throttle cable a bit. Since a PTO...

      Lead Head replied to the thread Fj62. Transmission will not engage.
      The clicking while trying to put it into park was the parking pawl bouncing. This indicates the transmission is likely still working somewhat, as it means the output shaft was spinning while you tried to put it into park. The only way you could...

      Lead Head replied to the thread 85 FJ60 Full Float Axle.
      The broken bolts will probably unscrew without much issue. However, unless it's a trick of the light, that axle shaft is spent and will need to be replaced. Looks like the splines are twisted to to me. May want to reconsider running an...

      Lead Head replied to the thread Harrop Eaton E-locker engagement help- 60 series.
      Plug the locker in. Back probe the wires going to the locker. Scrape some insulation off the wires if you have to. Measure the voltage on the locker's side of the plug. If you have 12v there, then something is internally wrong with the locker.

      Lead Head replied to the thread Harrop Eaton E-locker engagement help- 60 series.
      3 ohms sounds about right. 10.8 volts at the connector doesn't sound right. Should be battery voltage. I suspect if you check the voltage with it plugged it (say by back-probing the connector/wires) you will get close to 0v.

      The SST engages the crank damper itself so you can hold the engine stationary. I took the inspection cover off my bellhousing and jammed a breaker bar into the flywheel.

      "Bathtub Failure Curve". Things are most likely to fail when they're very new. Step 1 would be to check continuity of the magnet coil at the connection on the differential. So unplug the connection, put your multimeter across the two pins set to...

      Lead Head replied to the thread Harrop Eaton E-locker engagement help- 60 series.
      I mean it's not just an electromagnet. The wiring inside the third member could be faulty, the plug could be faulty, the magnet could be open circuit. The various mechanical pieces inside the locker could be hung up, stuck, or broken. The magnet...

      The Harrop E-Locker and the Toyota e-locker are very different mechanisms. The Harrop mechanism is located entirely within the housing. Are you sure both hubs are locked?

      Tighten the absolute snot out of the nut, and then mark the pulley and the nut with a white or silver line from a paint pen. Drive it a bit, check for movement. Rinse, Repeat.

      Lead Head replied to the thread Newly Overhauled FJ62 Trans Noise.
      Crank the engine and make sure the flextplate runs true with 0 wobble. Make sure the nose of the converter fits snug inside the crankshaft snout still. That joint is critical for aligning the converter. If it's a reman converter, I would place...

      You should be able to detect a bent crank just by watching the pulley. Does the pulley fit snug on the crank, or is there a lot of slop? Clean the threads thoroughly on both the crank and the nut, apply loctite and tighten it. The torque-spec on...

      You should never bypass the radiator transmission cooler. It removes the majority of the heat from the transmission.

      Lead Head replied to the thread Fj62 part time to full time 4wd?.
      It makes sense if you're going in and out of 2WD a lot. ...and why would the front hubs get loud? An FJ80 uses essentially the same axle, just with drive plates instead of locking hubs.

      Lead Head replied to the thread FJ 62 brake pedal goes to the floor.
      If you look at your rear axle, you see a weird little metal rod on a hinge type deal. The metal rod will run up towards middle of the land cruiser to a little dingus bolted to the frame. If you look at this dingus, you will see 3 brake lines and...

      Lead Head replied to the thread Fj62 Auto Trans Woes. Advice needed.
      Sounds like the pump seal let go, and the burning smell was ATF likely hitting the exhaust. Transmission likely stopped working because you ran out of fluid. That seal is a pretty cheap part, but the transmission does need to come off.

      Lead Head replied to the thread FJ 62 brake pedal goes to the floor.
      A bad booster either causes a very hard brake pedal, or an over-boosted pedal (as in, you barely touch the pedal and it flies to the floor sending you through the windshield). It will not cause a long-travel, however. Did you bleed the brake...
