    Older Fuel Tank pick up fitting size?

    @scrapdaddy I did a terrible job of planning when I had my stock tank out. I should have studied the subject more. I'm not sure why I thought a single hose at the rear of the tank was a good idea. It didn't take much of a Colorado downhill slope to expose it to air. I can't roll out of my...

    Older Fuel Tank pick up fitting size?

    I may have been a little premature. I found a thread in the FJ40 section and it pointed me to a special made adapter available from CoolCruisers. I ordered one to see if it does what I need. https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/fj40-fuel-tank-hose.323797/page-2

    Older Fuel Tank pick up fitting size?

    I have an older style gas tank without all the fuel vapor separator lines and no return line. Does anyone know the fitting size for the pickup tube? SOR's diagrams don't show the older tank configuration and the threaded fuel hose connected. It's on the front right side corner of the tank...

    The FJ55 Weatherstrip Guide

    Neither. I mis understood what you were looking for. This is the channel that the glass rides up and down in the track. For the wiper seals I didn't try to re-use the little round clips that hold the wiper seal. I did a glue-on version and they have worked well. Part # 70-3804-61 Outer...

    Builds My New Project

    Fillerneck Supply sent me another filler neck which got installed. The cap reads that's it's vacuum vented but apparently that's not enough vent for my set up. I notice a big "bang" on the way into town when the tank contracted. I ended up loosening the gas cap for the trip home. So today...

    3 Speed/ 4 Speed Transfer Compatibility Question?

    Yeah the split case is the way to go but it requires an entirely different $1000 AA Adapter and then new drive lines and such. Going that route I’m likely in for $2500 or more if I can find a case near me. I’m not sure that route is worth the money. With the 4-speed route I’m probably in at...

    3 Speed/ 4 Speed Transfer Compatibility Question?

    I have a 3 speed transfer mated with my 4L60E that has a high pitched whine. It was rebuilt before the install so I know it looked good internally. I'm thinking about swapping in a 4 speed transfer I can pick up locally and rebuild. I know I'll need a different input shaft from Advance...

    Builds Megadoomer Build

    I was scared driving mine from Oklahoma to Colorado after just a few hundred miles of around-town driving. Babied it for a little bit and nothing seemed to pop up, so I spent most of the trip cruising 75 with my wife pulling a trailer behind me as a safety precaution. She had a hard time...

    I’ve got a new check valve if the plumbing matches. 😊😊😊

    Builds My New Project

    Fillerneck Supply wanted me to test if my cap held pressure. I think I found the leak. They didn’t apply any sealer on the filler neck where the inside flapper insert meets the neck. They’re sending me another neck (this time one that’s sealed). Hence the leak was not something the cap...

    Builds My New Project

    @Megadoomer I'm thinking I have the same problem as you. I installed a return line for the LS motor and have just the stock tank that had two lines that traveled up to the filler neck. I going to add a check valve and run one hose up higher than the filler opening and vent it externally and...

    Builds My New Project

    With all my exposure to gasoline when working in petroleum pipe lines, it's fair to say I'm confident it's something in design on the 55 side. Filling up in the evenings (which I did this time) means the gasoline was likely at its warmest temp and therefore took up the most volume in my tank...
