    1989 FJ62 3F carburetor and electronic (modern) ignition system

    I have had good luck with the Pertronix hall effect electronic ignition in the '76 Fj40 with the 2F. Stay away from the Comp cams/FAST electronic ignition systems. I had one of the FAST XR700 electronic ignition systems on the Fj when I purchased it. These have an led type of trigger that I...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Easy one today. Battery died in the driveway. 4 1/2 years on a 5 year warranty. Got lucky. New one free of charge. These are AGM batteries. No sulfuric vapors to eat the paint on the underside of the hood.

    '76 FJ40 2F oil pressure after new sending unit installed.

I purchased a new Toyota sending unit, (yes these are still manufactured and used...

    ‘78 Carb cooling fan relay

    In my '79 Mitsubishi truck that I owned, I had an issue with a glass fuse. It LOOKED fine so I was looking farther up the electrical chain for the issue. The fuse had opened at the end where you could not see the break. Drove me nuts for a while. Bottom line is ALWAYS use VOM to check the...

    1976 distributor breaker point plate

    Anyone have one of these in good condition? The breaker plate has small ball bearings for rotation with the vacuum advance/retard unit. Mine has been cleaned in an ultra sonic tank and rotates, but has some "ratchety" rotation. Is this normal? Regards; Desert FJ40 in need of a part.
