    Todays wrenching

    Two new favorite hobbies. Welding and bottling honey. If I could do both all the time I’d be content.

    FJ62 expansion valve - wrong part listed!

    For something as specific as that I’d have cross checked on the Japan-parts.eu then gone to TPD for a more sane price and then called my dealer who typically will match the cheaper price w/o shipping. Lots of checks but worth it to find the correct number and still get it from Toyota.

    Thanks. I was bold too and graduated to welding w/o that leather jacket. Leather apron yes but I feel much more in control of the bead. My long distance mentor trained me well, @cruisermatt. Only one wild spark got past my hood and into my shirt. Burned me front and back. Amazing how those...

    Rocker arms are installed. Still need to adjust the valves but no biggie. Tossed the valve cover on just to protect it. Going to wire wheel all that crappy rattle can paint I put on the cover and have my local powder coater do it much nicer. Friend swung over w/ his ‘78 Dodge he restored that he...

    Made a patch and welded it on. Made a new gusset (?) and will get them welded in place this week. Then paint and add body mounts hardware. Ignore that little hole. It popped up as I was removing surface rust. I’m gonna goob it up w/ paint/linseed and consider it a drainage hole.
