    Water pump hose availability

    Is this hose a Toyota only part? I believe it's molded with a slight bend, or would a section of straight 1.75" work here?

I see our CLCC section has lots of new members and seems to be more active than ever. This post will be an introduction to some, and an explanation for my absence, for others. I have...

    Need some help with electrical switch to trigger starter

    I could use some help from Ed and any of you who know more electrical than I do. From my best reading of the 79 FJ40 electrical wiring diagram, the starter is triggered by the ignition switch turned to the Start position, which is fed by the 15amp Engine fuse to the Black with white stripe wire...

    Do later carbs have the G shaped retaining clip under the pump plunger?

    I'm rebuilding an Oct 26 1986 FJ60 carb today. When I tore down this carb it was missing the G shaped retainer clip that earlier carbs have which lives under the accelerator pump plunger and spring. On early carbs this retains the pump check ball. I don't think anyone has been into this carb...

    Thickness of crank lock washer?

    Does anyone know the thickness of the crank lock washer? This part is NLA from Toyota, and whoever did the terrible rebuild on my FJ55 engine decided to throw it away.
