    Aluminum radiator replacement

    I need a new radiator, the old owner had tore off the mounting brackets and it was only set into the cradle resting on the bottom tank! I looked at champion cool. I've used their stuff before and I was very happy with the quality built in the US, 100% aluminum (no plastic tanks), TIG welded...

    What holds the radiator in place?

    I'm working on my BJ42. I started to notice there is nothing holding the radiator into place inside the cradle because the two hoses? It's just put into the metal cradle with no bottom bushings, top tie downs or anything from the side. What is supposed to hold it in place and what is supposed...

    The finer points of a flipped 3b manifold for a turbo

    So after about 8 hours of reading threads on turbos I've decided to post a question specifically about flipping the 3b manifold. Most people have touched on the concept of flipping the stock manifold. It seems most people opt for the 13b manifold instead. But as the old saying goes...

    Different type of front bench seat

    I picked up a set of long style rear jump seats for my 81 bj42. They are in great shape, got a good deal, and prefer them over the one single rear jumpseat. As part of the deal it also came with one side of a front bench seat. I wasn't really looking for a front bench as my buckets are in...

    A flared out quarter panel

    So this is kind of odd. I bought a bj42 project. It's in pretty good shape, pretty low rust and it was the right price. It wasn't until I got it home I notice the quarter panels a little over halfway down to the wheel wells are flared outward. It's barely noticeable but there is two...

    Thinking about the unthinkable and painting my entire bj42 with bedliner

    Yes I used to be a person that would make fun of anybody even considering it. I called it a "high school paint job" because at some point every high school kid thinks it's a good idea. And it is for 2 years until the UV fades it, dirt gets in bedded, and the rubber in the actually paint flakes...

    MUDShip  Does anybody want me to drive something from LA to Portland on 8/15

    I'm flew down to LA and renting a car to drive back to Portland. Kind of a long shot with short notice but I thought I'd try anyway and might be a win win for me to save on a one way rental car and someone to save on getting a vehicle shipped. I'm completely trustworthy and capble of some...

    Wanted  h41 transmission for 81 bj42

    I posted a few months ago and got several replies but most are too far away and by the time I could ship it, it makes it cost prohibitive. Anybody in Oregon, washington, or california with one of these laying around?

    mistmatched top and body.

    I just bought an 81 bj42. I sold my old bj42 and missed it so I've got another one now. I I'm in Portland Oregon and drove a ways up into BC to get it. It's a project but all things consider it's in pretty good shape. The frame is surprising good, runs good, not too many rust issues so I'm...

    Extra long H41, swapping gears into an H42

    I have an 82 bj42 with an H42. I'd like the lower gears of the H41. I was kind of on the fence about an H55 and still am so it will come down to dollars and cents and what the answer to this question is. I did managed to find an H41 pulled from an 89 bj70. The previous owner said it had an...

    bj42 any simple bolt on turbos?

    I spent most of the day yesterday reading turbo threads. There is so much info out there it's hard to keep track of it all and wade through the information you need. On top of that alot of the info is 10 years old. What was true 10 years ago might not be as true as now. For example 13bt...

    Wanted  H41 transmission for an 81 bj42

    I'd possibly go with an H55 if the price is right but more than likely looking for an h41 to replace my H42 for a lower first gear. I live in Portland Oregon but road trip a fair amount. I know they are common outside of canada so if somebody has some insight where to look besides, "look in...

    Where did all the bj42's go?

    So about 5 years ago I went up to vancouver and brought back a bj42. I had a choice of about 10 that were for sale at the time. I loved that thing! But I needed the cash so I had to sell it about 2 years ago. I've finally decided I want another one so I started looking on craigslist a few...

    Timer pre heater box

    Somehow I managed to fry the circuits in this box and now my glow plugs don't work. I'm trying to think why do I need a timer pre heater when my glow plugs are manual anyway? I'm thinking either A) this box was part of the original and when part of it broke they put in a manual button to take...

    82 bj42 24 volt wiring diagram

    The link for Eric LeBlanc's wiring diagram in the FAQ's section is dead. It sounded like it was the cat's meow back in the day. Does anyone have a replacement or the fixed link for that? I'm in a desperate need of one. I wouldn't call what I have a wiring basket case, but it definitely needs...

    24volt/12volt wiper motor help

    So I got a fire sale deal on a windshield frame from an fj40 in perfect shape with the wiper motor and the arms. It's out of an older fj40. Problem is I have the motor but it's 12 volt. I also have the old 24 volt motor but they aren't interchangeable. Worse yet I don't think I can find a 24...
