    Looking for a shop in Dedham, MA

    My oldest son has just moved to Dedham, MA, as in within the last week. His 2002 4Runner is throwing a #4 cylinder misfire code and I've recommended he take it to a shop for repair. Can anyone recommend a shop in this area where he could take his 4Runner?

    80 series rear axle with front axle Tundra brake mod

    This began a year ago when I had a rear semi-floater bearing blow up 200 miles from home. I use my FJ60 on an almost daily basis often travelling hundreds of miles from home and it runs about a thousand pounds over stock weight. The rear axle bearing had less than 50,000 miles on it so having it...

    Quicken problem, can MUD help?

    We've used Quicken for years to keep up with home finance, just simple stuff like checking etc. Two weeks ago a problem surfaced where transactions are not being saved after being entered and the program closed and reopened. This began under the previous version which I think was Quicken 2016...

    80 series steering box install question

    I installed an 80 series steering box yesterday and the 60 series steering column is just a little too long to simply slip the yoke onto the input shaft of the 80 box. For those that have done this modification did you cut off a small section from the end of the inner shaft of the steering column?

    Dodged a $$$$ bullet

    I had the small bolt that holds the tab that secures the idler shaft break at some time in the past and I have no idea when. This of course allowed the idler shaft to back out and that must have happened over many miles until last week when internal pieces were set free within the transfer case...

    Transfer case gear question

    I had a small issue with my transfer case last week and a few teeth on the input gear and large gear on the idler gear were chipped. The gears that were damaged were from an '88 FJ62 (38 mm idler shaft). I have spare gears from an '86 FJ60 (38 mm idler shaft). Tooth counts on the large and...

    60s with canoes and maybe other boats

    First trip out this year with the canoes and thought I'd use that as an impetus to start a thread. Show us what you have. Both of these are Dagger Legend 16' canoes, the green one is about 25 years old and I keep thinking this the last trip for it; it's been beat on hard. The blue is a later...

    Which rotor button for Pertronix?

    I recently picked up a '73 FJ40 and the F distributor has a Pertronix unit in it. In checking it today I found that the rotor button slips badly on the shaft. It does not seat well enough to engage the slot on the rotor shaft. These are pics of it. What is the correct rotor button for a F...

    Rejuvenating a starter

    I had a starter that slowly faded out. Over time it was turning over slower and slower until it finally quit. I opened it up planning on replacing contacts and plunger. I had replaced these parts a few years ago but failed to properly set the edge of the contacts parallel to the plunger disc...

    '73 FJ40 parts question

    Picked up a '73 FJ40 last week. In going through the parts included I found a stock looking eye bolt and stock looking footman loops on the body. There are three loops on each side with two toward the rear. Indicative of a factory soft top model?
