I have an Autometer with electric sending unit mounted in one of the ports on the head. Been there for 200+k miles without any issues. I can watch the temp rise as the engine warms and tell when the t-stat is about to open. Water temp hits about 200 then drops. Good to have a second gauge to...
Gassed it up.
Since it lacks good lights, registration, insurance, and is driven only on the farm I added a reflective triangle. It's now an ag vehicle :lol:
Filling up right along with another tractor.
I don't know which speedo gear ratio I have in my t-case, FJ60 or 62 because I've swapped parts around. The nylon speedo gear is a 6x16 and smaller in diameter than another I have on hand (I think this on is a 8x16). With 4.11s and 255/85/16s my speedo is only off by 1-2 mph as checked against...
IIRC over the course of the 60 series there have been 3 different speedo cable iterations.
Shortest one for the H42 without spacer (1981-84)
Intermediate length cable to work with the H42/H55F with spacer (1985-87)
Longest cable in the FJ62 because the A440F is longer than the manual...
The easiest, quickest, and cheapest route.
Installing a 3FE into a 60 is no small undertaking. I have done it using a '88 FJ62 as a donor and having an entire parts vehicle to pull from is the best way to approach the swap.
Cool. With the young ones you could look at the venter (belly) for a fresh umbilical scar. That would give a good indication if they'd recently been born but finding 10 together makes sense of a freshly born clutch since they're typically solitary.
Yes. The braking is substantially improved and well controlled. I did replace all the major components which are listed earlier in this thread. I've put probably 10k +/- miles on this setup thus far.
I also miss the brake backing plates but haven't noticed an issue without them and I've...
