    Bent Axle Housing - maybe?

    Got back at it yesterday and had had great success at drilling into the studs to get my extractor tool to work. I had enough spares to get the axle secured as it was, and we will see if they hold. Fortunately I have a spare housing that I can install if these new studs break as well.

    Bent Axle Housing - maybe?

    You can see how far in the holes that the studs broke. I'll try looking for a left hand drill bit. A shot with the axle removed.

    Bent Axle Housing - maybe?

    I pulled the axle and they are all broken well into the holes. I don't think I can be hammering anything in there without doing lots of damage to the threads.

    Bent Axle Housing - maybe?

    During last year's trip to Cruising in the Woods I broke 4 of the 6 axle studs on the drivers side. I don't know when exactly and only noticed it while unloading the trailer after we got home. At the time the nuts just appeared to be loose so we snugged them down and I drove home. Three of the...

    Full Float Rear End - Bent Housing?

    I've been having trouble keeping the nuts tight on one axle on the rear end of my truck for a while. A romp (more like thrashing) through Tillamook off road area at Cruisin' the Woods resulted in a leak at the axle flange and after tightening the nuts, three of them "disappeared" on a subsequent...

    Who still uses their 45 for work?

    The ends: The shooting and fire wood was done in the crotch of the valley in the center of the pic. That cut line on the right side of the pic is the trail in. If you zoom in on the left side of the third uptrack to the right, you will see my target.

    Builds “Big City”, 1981 FJ45 LPB

    What's a 105 mod? Is there a light for the license plate? Pic please. It's an awesome looking truck and let us know if you get to MT. It might be worth a drive down to take a look see.

    Is there supposed to be a drain here?

    It does seem odd that they would seal the bottom of that upright. I'm sure the benefits of sealing the seam is far out weighed by the problem of having standing water in there.

    Is there supposed to be a drain here?

    From my original '78. It looks like it had factory seam sealer applied at the bottom. No plugs on the top, but the original owner did have some kind of topper on it I think. Looks like you have the wrong screws holding that thing down. Post few pics of the whole truck.

    Community clean up today. It's amazing that out of the 15 or so trucks that showed up, one was my 45 and there were 2 old Unimogs. Awesome neighbourhood.

    Is this worth saving - what is it's value? Oh, and Fawk Cancer

    I will be down home in June and have offered to inventory what he has and help with a sale. My friend was a mechanic and knew his way around vehicles. I'm sure he thought it was worth saving. I'm kind of interested in a possible value given the recent find and purchase in WY. It is about as...

    Is this worth saving - what is it's value? Oh, and Fawk Cancer

    This was a project that a life long acquaintance of mine was working on. He passed away last week after a short bout with cancer. Fawk Cancer. The 45 is '77 or '78 I think and I have no idea of it's history. It is located on the east coast of Canada. The photos are mine taken during a recent...
