    BlackBox-C Land Cruiser Planetary Underdrive

    NW-Fab replied back quicker than expected on a Friday evening. The tabbed bronze bushing goes into the planetary carrier first. The untabbed version goes around the input gear then the metal retainer.

    BlackBox-C Land Cruiser Planetary Underdrive

    I'm at a bit of a loss on the bronze bushings. I've got the input gear out and the old "plastic" bushings separated. There are two versions of the bronze bushing(one with tabs, one without) but there appears to only be one of the "plastic". Here is a picture to show the issue: In the...

    Is the owner of this Placerville FJ45 here?

    Is it? I didn't think the rovers had the big 'bubbled' top like FJ40/fj45s. Nor the rounded rear corner windows... time to search google.

    Is the owner of this Placerville FJ45 here?

    Title states it. I was running one of the 'backroads' of Placerville, Calif and saw this beauty: After doing two u-turns, I got the wife to snap a picture. I didn't want to freak the owner out by running around it ;)

    Wanted ‘73 FJ55 tailgate window motor pinion gear needed

    I'm waiting for things to settle down. But I currently have four gears in my hand. Two may be claimed. One is being kept for green 55.

    FJ55 Sliders

    Mine was 2x4... I forget the thickness... I want to say 0.188" (3/16") My fab guy is confident in their ability to take a few good hits... his comment was something along the lines of if the rockers are damaged, there is going to be a lot more that is damaged.

    Wanted ‘73 FJ55 tailgate window motor pinion gear needed

    My guy has the capability... he did one earlier. He is just slammed and had one project get the deadline sucked in suddenly. Hopefully in the next day or two.

    Wanted ‘73 FJ55 tailgate window motor pinion gear needed

    I would be fairly confident that SOR gears are correct. Here are the gears I have pre-final machining: I've heard some claims that these will work without a recess. My own trial fitting says not a chance of the cover fitting without either a recess or beating the cover flat.

    Wanted ‘73 FJ55 tailgate window motor pinion gear needed

    I'm not sure who is doing the brass gears. I bought several that needed a groove machined in them to clear the cover indent. I forget how many I have left now :/

    Wanted ‘73 FJ55 tailgate window motor pinion gear needed

    Where abouts in Nor Cal are you? I've got a brass one that I'm waiting to get machined. I'm in Georgetown. What weatherproofing/rubber are you looking for? Normally I'd recommend Slo Cruisers. But I might have an extra upper tailgate rubber handy(goes on the main body)

    Dream engine swap

    The price on them are insane though :( Also somewhat expensive to get a manual trans behind. Back in the day, people were swapping them into other vehicles and claiming the ability to get 20mpg with a Q-jet carb :eek:

    Wanted Fan shroud for my ‘69 fj55 1f.

    PM sent. According to SOR(Land Cruiser Cooling System, FJ40 Water Pump, Fan, Fan Clutch, Radiator and Hoses), same shroud in FJ55s until ~1978.

    Wanted Fan shroud for my ‘69 fj55 1f.

    Is there a method to tell difference between F and 2F shrouds? I have one I pulled of late 72 FJ55 with F engine. I'll work on picture and pm shortly.

    Dream engine swap

    Depends upon goals. Aside from shooting myself in my foot, I'm mostly enjoying my 6.0L NV4500 FJ55. Gets the hell out of its own way :p I didn't feel it was enough power so piggy number 2 is getting turbo 5.3L. The turbo should handle the issue of over power on parts... ie "soft" power...

    That long parking brake cable, who has them?

    Do what? :eek: That is worse than "we won't ship due to prop 65" than I get in Calif.

    Which oil pan in LS 6.0 Swap - 1979 FJ40 ?

    Your info on the 6.0L(lsX) being "bigger" than a gen 1/2 SBC is mostly wrong. It sound like your engine placement is off. SBC is 26" wide... lsx is 24" wide. SBC is 28" long... lsx is 28.25" long(then depends upon water pump) SBC 27" tall... lsx is 28.25"(depends upon oil pan, carb, intake...

    Rethinking my drivetrain – thinking about ditching the doubler

    Doubler has nothing to do with "power". It has to do with overcoming 'off idle' characteristics... especially for fools installing large cams not suitable for offroad. If you are set on getting rid of your current drivetrain, I would highly recommend going to a split case. Much quieter. (yes...
