    Builds 1MAC's 1965 FJ40 Project build

    Awesome!!! I am of course not privy to your motivation to sell. After what you have done, I hate to see it all be removed from your world. I will definitely keep track of it on Bat. Good luck with the auction.

    oil pressure gauge good, then not so much

    Thanks, The last mechanics to work on it in depth stated the pressure was good and were not sure what was going on with the OEM gauge.

    oil pressure gauge good, then not so much

    The oil pressure gauge on my '68 FJ40 shows good pressure at start up but then slowly fades to almost nothing after the engine warms up. Every time. Any suggestions?

    Pre-1980 FJ40 VIN Information

    E, I recently decided to replace my replacement Door Jamb VIN plate. Found a vendor on ebay, Carboneliveries. I am told (by 1h8mud member) that they do a good job. Not cheap. I also got an engine compartment plate but those are now sold out I believe.
