      driveshafts are shortened/lengthened, just finishing up another FJ62 and then this one is on deck :cool: Working on a new scratch-built H55f crossmember kit for these swaps as the pricing of used crossmembers has went unreasonably high IMO.

      Man, what a roady! Did you get the Long Haul award?

      My 52 Stude is stripped down and I commissioned @dsalni to do a final rendering with the paint and the parts I have already purchased. If anyone is looking to see what a final build out would look like contact Dennis. He is extremely...

      ok, quick update so people don't think I totally gave up... Fast forwarding through a LOT of work: It works again. I can't believe I was actually driving it just now. And it works pretty well, knock on wood... No leaks, no weird noises, it...

      Perfectly distressed denim. Nice.

      @RoyB there are several well known V8 conversionists (yea I just made that word up...word up!) here in the Mud community. They've been through all the trials and error of putting V8s in these rigs. Your shop locally may be a badass hot...

      @klinetime574 One more thing I forgot to mention, I saw your crumbled bushing in your main thread. You need to clean out the greasable pin shafts on those shackles. The debris from those crumbled bushing has likely clogged the grease holes on...

      Skniper replied to the thread Old Man Emu Leaf Spring Issue.
      This was a common issue with the Emu spring sleeves from those years (search around)....my similar age Emu springs did this too. However, your one sleeve is WAY too loose, like the wrap on the spring itself opened up some, not ideal. Maybe a...

      Skniper replied to the thread New FJ62 Trip Home.
      Yes it can be dangerous, but works ok for short bits of time…you can’t get lazy about it. I used to use the “62 cruise control” occasionally to rest my foot/leg in a different position for a couple minutes…and only when no other cars were...

      @jesus888 one of the VSVs you removed on the driver side fender for the desmog (post #8) helps control the FPR (I ‘think’…haven’t looked at mine in awhile)… it’s advised to keep that one functioning. Believe maybe it’s the yellow plug…I can...

      Nice! It’s the twin of mine. FYI, that passenger side wiper doesn’t look ready for a 1200 mile trip.

      Good catch, a few days ago I started typing a response to your previous shock length post and how it relates to the ubolt flip kit. Yea the flip kit shortens the shock space by 1.5 - 2 inches. This bit me in the butt when I tried to mount the...

      Don’t worry, @Godwin will have that fancy new rack patina’d in very short order.** **See photo just above ^

      Beware…while effective, these autobot vacuums are non discriminatory when it comes to other dog “debris”. Photo below sent by a friend after his roomba went mudding, it then continued to fingerpaint his entire floor with that foul mess. I was...

      Jim this post gives me some peace, not much though, lol…this threaded plug on my 3FE looked leaky. Plan was to just back it out and reseal and call it good. I put a wrench to it and a fair amount of muscle, that thing wasn’t budging. I almost...

      Today, 610 in Bellaire, right hand drive….and I did roll down my windows so I could smell his stinky glorious diesel smoke, and hear it rattle. Anyone know it?

      Following up. They work perfectly on a 62 as well

      It's 83.33333% safe. I like your odds.
    • Skniper
      Agree, esp since it invokes lots of sealant.
