    Dash cover or OEM

    Yes. The lower pads are attached with bolts rather than the OEM clips.

    Dash cover or OEM

    I am installing the Fj40dash.com upper and lower pads in my '74 restoration project. I am very happy with their product. I wish the upper pad did not have the logo, but otherwise I have no complaints. It appears to be much more durable than the OEM unit. I do not know how it will weather.

    Cascade Cruisers for sale / wanted thread

    I need some heater parts for a '74 FJ40 that I am restoring. Specifically, I need all of the copper heater pipes/hoses/jumctions running from the control valve thru the firewall and back to the rear heater. I am trying very hard to keep this restoration completely OEM. Any help will be greatly...

    Fj40 5.3l Vortec Drive By Wire

    It takes only a small modification of the firewall to allow room for the GM DBW pedal and sender assembly.

    '74 FJ40 Ignitor Question

    I am hoping the Cruiser Gods will view it that way and have mercy on my soul:grinpimp: In fact, I inherited this and another mostly disassembled FJ40 from my brother. He tore them both completely apart with the idea of making one complete restoration. He became ill partway through the...

    '74 FJ40 Ignitor Question

    Thank you Coolerman and Pin Head for your input -- it is greatly appreciated. I am very confused:confused: After stripping off tape and looking more closely at this harness, I do not see any evidence that a 4-pin connector that might link to the 89620-22011 Igniter has been removed. This...

    '74 FJ40 Ignitor Question

    Sadly, the harness side of the connector is MIA. I was hoping someone on the forum might know or be able to check the connections if they have a similar igniter. My ability to "read" the schematic is unfortunately limited.

    '74 FJ40 Ignitor Question

    I am restoring a June 1974 FJ40. At some point in its history, the igniter and electrical connector to the wiring harness were removed. I purchased a used igniter assembly (89620-22011) that I believe was used on CA-spec Cruisers from 9/73 to 6/74 (Thank you Pardion). The wiring colors...

    Engine swap'tions in an FJ45 LWB. (other than SBC please.)

    Hey.........maybe you could crowd-source-fund the new motor by selling cool little key rings:) I think I still have a few from the original LCML -- Zebranator project:cool:

    Engine swap'tions in an FJ45 LWB. (other than SBC please.)

    Ok, at the outset, you are far too old and incompetent to be starting a project like this:rofl: If you are so dead set against GM engines, and refuse to go electric, I recommend consideration of the Toyota 4.0L GR-FE V6. Just do not succumb to the diesel nerds. Do that and come out west for a...

    Ls conversation & 4l60 conversation question

    Another option if you don't go to an electric NVG transfer case, is to fabricate mounts for either pneumatic or electric shifters. There are several threads on Pirate that show how to use a pneumatic system to shift an NP 205. AA also makes an electric servo system to shift the 4-speed Atlas...

    Ls conversation & 4l60 conversation question

    You mean like this ? This is from my '65 FJ45 with a 6.0L, 4L80E and NVG 463 transfer case. I really like the transfer case and the shifting mechanism for the intended purpose of this truck (not a hardcore crawler). As much as I like the combination, there are some complications that you...

    Restoring Switch Knobs

    Holy Hijack, Matt! Another option of those who do not have access to a buffing wheel, or are too lazy to spend the time buffing: 1. Sandblast the knob to remove all old paint and etch the knob. You can't see the engraved letters in this pic, but they are there 2. Using a paint stick, fill...

    Are you adding baffles or multiple pickups? Do you worry about the pump starving when low on fuel and tilted? I would.

    What is the better solution: super deep gears, doubler, or tcase gears

    What is the better solution: super deep gears, doubler, or tcase gears

    I have run Dana 60, 5.86 gear sets for a number of years (15 actually), early with a doubler (203-205) and then lately with a TH400 and Atlas 3.8. As I am sure you know, the down side of the D60 5.86 is the incredibly small size of the pinion gear and the resulting minimum gear-tooth contact...
