    Builds 1-HDT rebuild - late 2019 start

    Yup. Exactly what I did. Who's rings did you use? Toyota, Engines Australia or other?

    The truck seems to be running great. I didn't even know there was a problem until I popped the oil fill cap with the engine running. I'll start a new thread so I don't drag down Dan's thread with my misfortune.

    Yeah, it's pretty heart breaking; even more so since I've only got a couple theories as to what I could have done wrong. I'm going to start my own thread on the re-rebuild (just as soon as I can wrap my head around the idea of re-rebuilding this engine) and I'll include every detail I can think...

    Yay! Let me know what procedure you use for break-in. I tried to do everything I could to correctly break-in my engine but now with 2,200 miles on the odometer I still have excessive blow by and oil consumption. I’m dreading the thought but I believe my piston rings have not seated correctly...

    1979 FJ40 A/C Advice

    No, there's no room for a stock radio. There's barely room for the Carling switches and I'm having a buddy cut me a little 1/2" spacer/bezel to push the switches out just a tad so it's not quite so tight in there.

    Where did your cruiser take you today?

    We are buying some vacant land up in the mountains of Lassen County near Frenchman Lake. Since the club run was cancelled, my oldest and I spent the weekend up there exploring and getting a feel for the property while we are in escrow.

    UPS delivered it to them this morning. I'm hoping they can get it shipped back to me by tomorrow. If so, there's a slight chance it can get delivered on Friday. But Monday/Tuesday is more likely. :(

    I thank you but it's highly doubtful you have anything that would work. The H55 and split case is a good deal longer than anything the -40s came with. I need a shaft that's 33" long with a 2.375"x2.375" flange on the transfer end and a 2.75"x2.375" flange on the differential side. I shipped...

    Fail. New shaft arrived and the yoke is the wrong pattern for my transfer case output flange. It'll have to go back to UT tomorrow. I doubt I'll have it in time for next weekend, but we can always hope!

    Driveshaft on order. Should have it by the end of the week.
