      For curiosity, have you done anything with the factory splices in the doors? I'm in the process of fixing those in my doors after having amazing success with the driver's door. All I did was undo the electrical tape from the crimped splice, flux...

      No, the motor was pretty clean inside! But I wanted to check and I refreshed the lube inside. Would I do it again?…. Probably not. I think the bigger issues with these things are the relays you replace, master switches and power flow (good...

      I've had someone else suggest that actually. Hadn't done any research into that one, but years ago I had my heart set on a 4BT and had subsequently abandoned that. I may dig into the research I did on that again and delve into comparing pros and...

      A brass wheel on a Dremel works well for cleaning up those contacts without scoring them like a steel wheel would. It's not a super long term fix and not as good of quality as a brand new switch, but does provide a vast improvement if you're in a...

      I love the look of that panel. So hoping an FJ62 variant comes available eventually from either you or @NLXTACY

      AC Bezel for the B&T build is set up. A few new decals will be added for the ARB compressor, lockers, and LEDs. Also.... manual cruise control mod in the works. Jason

      I edited my last post near the end to clarify a bit. I can 3D print with two different types of printers at the moment, FDM which is the popular format of 3D printing and SLA which is a resin based 3D printer. The SLA printer uses UV cured...

      Doing some more research on the topic of swaps again with fuel prices being what they are, and starting with an investment in refining biodiesel. I have a few friends locally who would help with the financial aspect of it and a few other avenues...

      g turbo had more modern design and flows a lot more air. boost is around 18psi i think. max you can safely get out of the stock ct26 is about 16 but i’m only getting about 12-14. more air helps keep egt down if you don’t turn the fuel up too much!

      The 12-HT is a 1980s era engine. Same as the 2F. On paper it's specs are very similar to the 2F. The LQ9 is 20 years younger than the 12-HT. Finding parts for the 12-HT is like finding parts for a Model T. Unobtainium. Shoehorning a 12-HT into a...

      Spook50 replied to the thread Diff leak/cover advice needed.
      From when I rebuilt my rear diff a little over a year ago: FIRST AND FOREMOST: get a new OEM cork gasket. If OEM calls for a gasket, use a gasket and not FIPG or RTV. I have never once used RTV on my rig and only ever use FIPG where the FSM...

      Spook50 reacted to Ducks's post in the thread To H55 or not, that is the question with Like Like.
      Putting an H55 into the '62 really helps with the power since the automatic transmission really sucks the power out of the 3FE.

      There's only two criteria for answering this: 1) Do you have the funds? 2) Can you drive a stick? If both of those are met there is no question. Since having it done on my 62 I've only looked back once, and that was this last week while...

      This exact scenario happened with me and my friend’s old S type Jaguar on a long road trip. Pulled in to gas station and oil level was way low. Added 1-1/2 quarts to get oil level to Full line on dipstick then drove the remaining few hundred...

      Spook50 replied to the thread all windows just quit 89/fj62.
      If it were just the driver's window no longer working I would suspect the relay box, but someone beat me to my first guess, which is what turned out to be the issue: circuit breaker

      As mentioned, Power window circuit breaker reset…hangs loose behind fuse panel somewhere up in there.

      You can drop a digital dual volt meter into a switch blank. They’re Carling-size but there’s a lot of options for a bank of Carling switches.

      I had considered that. Not off the table, but I haven't looked too deeply into it. That research will come when I'm at a point of being able to actually spend the money :lol:

      Curious to hear your experience with them once you get em in.

      I just bought an upgraded set from him, his reviews and feedback are outstanding. I may send him my old injectors to renew too.
