    For Sale  SW Colorado 1965 Moab Ready FJ 40

    I built this cruiser for my personal use when I started and operated Wolf Creek Rod Works in Pagosa Springs. I sold the company some years back and it has since gone out of business. I used this Cruiser annually at Cruise Moab for fun and business. I just don't use it enough anymore to...

    Odd Dealer Options

    Looking at the description in the patent application, it seems this option may have been intended to improve uphill/downhill performance relative to carburetor flooding. Certainly an interesting option Don

    283 V8 + Chevy T5 = what to do?

    Don't ignore the option of putting the ranger OD from Advance Adapters between your bell housing and the stock 4 spd tranny. Moves your gear shift back to approximately the original location. You probably don't have to get any more adapters as you can order it for the LC 4spd (which you have...

    Seatbelt and rollbar bolts

    The US DOT mandated that seat belts in any US car or imported car had to be secured with 7/17 SAE thread bolts. It's the only US bolt you will find in a land cruiser..... Don

    Overheating... SBC 350

    I believe you can cool just fine with electric fans. But, you do need good radiator. If you are overheating at highway speed, it 's not an indication that you have insufficient fan. You have 60mph air flowing over the radiator. It's indicative you have too small a radiator. Fan issues show...

    FJ40 Tube fenders

    If you feel motivated to build your own, this is the tube framing we did inside a basically stock shape front fender. In this case, we widened the fender, but the concept would work just fine with a stock shape. We also had to relocate the frame tie back a bit to clear the coilover, but you...

    Contura rockers???

    P.S. The SM420 is not syncronized in granny gear (7.05 to 1). You have to STOP to engage the gear. With the ranger OD, I can manipulate between two gear ratios in first gear (at the transmission) while moving, as the OD is fully syncronized... Don

    Reducing clutch throw....

    Remove the clutch pedal. Single bolt at the top. Remove the push rod pin. Drill a new hole just below the existing hole, the same diameter hole and the same distance in from the edge of the pedal assembly. Do not go too far, maybe 1/2 inch or less. Mount the push rod in the new lower hole...

    Good Vibrations?

    Mr 40. Did you build this engine or have it built? Do you know it's history. I am assuming your 305 has a one piece rear main seal. If so, the flywheel, balancer are different than with the older type engines. Is it a possibility that someone mixed up some of those components? Is...
