I have an 89 Volvo 240 that had something similar happen. I took it to my amazing Volvo only mechanic, first thing he did was test the battery (even though it started no problem for him yet wouldn't for me under the same condition). Battery tested fine. Later, he decided to put it on a longer...
Just to add to the debate. I have an 88 and I put on the 33x10. 5 bfg about 2 yrs ago. Zero issues. Gas mileage hasn't changed and I haven't experienced any rubbing. The big difference/ issues I think come when you get into the wider, and even heavier, 12.5 tire. However, I it appears that I...
That's a good point. I assumed it was correct because I ordered it from Toyota and they asked for the year, make and model like usual. Everything except the corners fit fine (or the "U" at each end wasn't deep enough).
Anyone know the differences between a gasket for an 87 and an 88?
Picked up an OEM gasket as everyone recommended. Once the pan was off and cleaned I laid the gasket on top to check its fit. Each corner sat approx. 1cm off the pan. This is unusual right?
Yet, I went forward with the install anyway and sure enough, when I was done, the "U" ends wouldn't sit...
You're missing 2 fender flares right? Maybe that has something to do with the wheels looking off.
Do you have access to the originals? Not sure how difficult it may be to get ahold of some, sure that could effect the price a bit.

Hey man, I'm just across the river in Vancouver with an fj62. It'd be cool to meet up if you wanted to test the ride, it's stock springs though, and I've always wanted to know what a v8 drove like.
PM me if you're interested.
No ideas, eh?
Everything's been running fine, so no possibility this bolt became loose and fell down from somewhere?
Thanks to anyone who can help out, or at least give me a word of confidence that this is just a fluke.
Recently I replaced my oil pan gasket, and today I had the chance to remove the inspection plate to see what it was like under there, and this is what I found...
What's the deal here? There IS a bolt visible that is tightened down on the oil pan side inside there, should this bolt ALSO be...
This helped me out quite a bit too, but the thing that made the biggest difference, at least in my case, was windshield polish and ever since my wipers have been like a dream. I think it was Cruiser Dan that told me to give it a try.
Best of luck.
Mine is the same. I read that every fj62 came with power windows and locks unless you chose the "poverty package". its nice to never deal with electronic issues, but at times I wish I had the power windows. Build was an Oct. '87
