    Wanted  FJ55/FJ40 Rear Heater Blower MOTOR

    MUD My rear blower motor shorted out (1975 FJ55) and melted itself to hell. Looking for a replacement motor - I posted in the piggy section and was guided here to a larger audience. Pretty sure the 40/55 motors are identical. I'm OK if it needs a refurbishing - just procured a shiny new...

    Saginaw Power Steering Upgrade - 1974 FJ55

    All right, so here’s the good word: you can install (and be pleased with) a Saginaw gearbox and pump without any major cutting of frame, body, shock mount, or motor mount. Here’s how I did it. With the engine and all body panels in place, I convinced myself that a forward-facing Saginaw box...

    Fuel Tank: Solving a clogged pickup tube

    Hey everyone. This seemed good enough tech to split out on its own, thought I'd share. What to do if your fuel tank pickup tube is fully clogged and no amount of pushing/pulling/blowing/sucking will dislodge whatever evil chunk of bastardry has taken residence in the pickup tube? Give up? Pay...

    Wanted  OEM Fuel pump rebuild kit, Boise ID

    I'm aware that the mechanical fuel pump rebuild kits are NLA, but thought I'd ask the MUD community if anyone stashed one and is willing to part with it. This is for a 1975, 2F, two tubes (no fuel return). Seems a shame to throw this thing away and settle for a craptastic aftermarket...

    H55 Rebuild, Scratching my head here...

    In the process of buttoning back up my late 80's H55 and associated split case. In addition to swapping input shafts (thanks to help from Georg at Valley Hybrids), I opted to throw in new synchros and seals. I'm now hung up on what seems like excessive thrust/play of the counter shaft. I've...
