    Trollhole vs City Racer Carb

    If you go with a Fuji Carb (city racer) swap out the float for OEM Aisan and check the o-ring for the fuel cut solenoid. OEM is ideal, I rebuild them for folks and it keeps everything simple, but if you don't have the original carb, Fuji is a nice option (once you do the above :))

    When to Let Well Enough Alone?

    If it makes you happy/sleep better at night, then do it. Enjoy the process so you can enjoy the final product.

    Value/benefit of charcoal canister?

    Exactly as above, it vents your tank and the charcoal absorbs the fuel vapors. If you plumb the solenoid and/or vcv, it will also use engine vacuum to pull it through while running, which is a nice feature. My truck is desmogged but I've always kept the charcoal canister/evap system.

    Busy few days, at a standstill until my orders from overseas arrive. SAS is looking a little more doable

    And she’s in - took two tries, putting it in as entire unit took some patience. Thanks @The Machinist ;). Seeing the truck in the sunlight made me happy. Almost as happy as the day I’m driving it.

    Vehicle pricing trend?

    It's not just land cruisers, it's been happening with cars for decades, 60s-80s 4x4's are hot and will likely hold for years to come. This happened with 911s about 8 years ago and continues to grow. You couldn't sell an impact bumper targa or 912, ever. Now you are luckky to find those for less...

    Good enough to drive for me. Need a 1” pad for these trucks, too many hard angles to reach. Time to set the motor in this weekend!

    Hey Roma! Don't tease me with the thought of Bluewater! Idaho does not have a fine selection of seafood :( WRT the bolt, no dice. I need to call classic cruisers for that one, just haven't put time aside to do that. If you have one that isn't put to use, I'd gladly compensate you.

    Haha, you gotta do the right steps to seal it. I use 6mo-1yr sealants from gyeon and it saves the paint. Trick is hydrating what’s left of the paint.

    Hope I can get this all evened out tomorrow. Paint came back nicely

    Not sure if this year is in the books for me - if it is I should probably put this together.

    Who wants to play "Name That Part"?

    That or silence them. I’ve seen sleeves from Toyota on the inside and outside of a spring, haven’t found a real reason yet.
