    For Sale  SOLD! - CO: Price drop - 1979 FJ40 seat belt set FS

    1979 Seat Belt set from an FJ40. I used the passenger belt for many years in my '78 until I got my original ones re-webbed. The driver's belt is frayed, but all other aspects of these belts are excellent, other than faded release buttons. The retractors work smoothly and engage when the belt is...

    Year ID - old FJ40?

    I found this seriously abandoned FJ40 at lunch. VIN is FJ-40-16831. It has short running boards, high B pillars, bug-catcher windows, etc. SOR and CCoT's sites only show 1964 and later. What approx year/month might this be? The door was rusted shut and it's on private property, so I didn't...

    Slack in steering wheel when engine running

    An odd condition. '06 GX 470 with 170K. Steering shaft replaced by Toyota at 20K under warranty, and it has a recently installed new, non-OEM steering rack. When the truck is running and you're driving or idling, there is a slight bit of slack in the steering wheel. When you shut off the engine...

    Best timing chain kit - year 2020

    I have searched endlessly, but I find most timing chain posts are from 2009, where people recommend the NLA 'enginebuilder' kit. So, in June of 2020, what kit should I buy? Need a single-chain setup for a July 1982 22R engine. Thanks -

    Carb cold idle kick-up question

    I have a stock '82 carb and the cold idle kick-up plate (the 4-stepped piece attached to the choke linkage) just sort of flops around and won't engage with the choke. I have studied this carb and a few others and cannot see how it can work. (This plate gives you partial hold-open of the throttle...

    SAIS question - filter replace?

    This may be a stupid question, but I have seen nothing on this in the forum. Since the SAIS problem seems to stem from the SAIS air filter disintegrating over time and getting sucked into the air pump, has anyone tried replacing or removing the filter? This seems obvious. This would still...

    What's in the Sport package? - confused

    It appears the headlights, taillights, and fog lights may differ. Does it always mean KDSS and darker wheels, too? Edmunds says: The optional Sport Package adds unique exterior trim and wheels, as well as a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System (KDSS), which is a computer-controlled suspension...

    Bolt-in replacement transmissions for '82

    I have looked on Marlin's site and in many blogs, but only find very complex answers to my simple question. I believe my 7/82 4x4 long bed has an L50 5 speed. It's a bit noisy (although it's hard to know what normal is). 22R engine. Are there later transmissions (or trans/xfer combos) that are...

    22R rod clatter on startup - normal?

    I have a 22R (1982) with 165K miles. Good oil pressure when running, fresh oil and filter. When you start it (after sitting a few days), the engine is initially quiet, then there's a clear 'rod knock sound' for about 1-2 seconds, and then as the oil pressure comes up on the gauge, it's become...

    Builds  Build: Steve's 82 Longbed

    I bought this from the original owner last weekend. I have all receipts from the last 37 years. I knew of this truck 25 years ago (worked with the guy) and it has sat since 2012 un-driven, mostly stored indoors. Was repainted a different color years ago - started life as metallic gray. Now, it's...

    Hood pads - incessant squeaking of hood

    This is a first-world problem, for sure: The hood pads (the rubber pads that sit atop the grille frame and cushion the hood) have been noisy since I got the truck. I have tried greasing them, which quiets things, but makes a big mess when you open the hood and drag your arm across the grille...

    AFI TBI loose screw - caution!

    Check the screws in your TBI setup! I took apart my air cleaner and adapter yesterday, and a screw from my AFI TBI setup ominously fell on the ground. It had fully backed out and was lying next to the TBI setup, waiting (presumably) to fall into the intake throat and fry the engine. I...
