    Preventing damage to rear heater

    Quick couple the lines and remove it until winter? Mine was always stepped on with kids going into the back so I may build a guard or just pull it and put in quick couplers, glad you brought this up. When it’s removed you can connect the lines so coolant just loops. Just a thought.

    Builds 1974 FJ40 Restoration Build Thread

    X2 since it could only be bottomed out on the cylinder itself, which once it moves it would leak instantly. If you can chase the threads you could shorten it to work. Any idea what it’s bottoming on?

    Wisconsin Introductions

    I haven’t wheeled around here ever. Just brought the 40 back down from our cabin where it’s been sitting barely used for 15 yrs. time to get after it again since rust wants to reclaim portions I “repaired” on the cheap initially. Wouldn’t know where to start finding trails around here go...

    Jefferson Swap Meet

    The swap was a mud pit. Not much to see down there. And with the internet and price of fuel, I would expect to see gatherings such as this go by the wayside in the next 5-10 years.
