So I’ve been posting in the “What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week” thread, but I figured, why not start a build thread.
This is a 10/72, 73 model year that I picked up on Craigslist about a year ago. The posted pictures made it look like a beater, but it was just baked in the...
Maybe a long shot, but I’m looking for the bolts that attach the seat brackets to the cushion and is also the pivot point on the upper/lower bracket.
The shop that took them apart did not return any of the hardware and are not cooperating. These are the only ones that seem non-standard.
Searched but no up-to-date info. Who rebuilds manual steering boxes these days?
My ‘77 restoration is moving along and need this part gone over by a trusted source. I’m guessing mark or @orangefj45 ?
Mine had some play and was leaking pretty good. Any help would be appreciated!
My friend is a LC restorer and is selling this. Says it's a good candidate for restoration or parts, solid floors, doors, and rear tailgate. Typical rust in front fenders and rockers. Contact him on the CL ad or I can forward the # via PM.

Not mine, but being sold through a friend. He's a LC restorer and said this is a great foundation for a resto. Contact him on CL if interested.

Hey all, I've now ventured into the world of FJ55 ownership with this 76' Pig. I picked it up a few weeks ago and wanted to throw up a thread in this section. I left for overseas the same day I purchased it, so I don't have a lot of details or pictures until I get back home in January. All I...
Hey all, figured I'd spend some time this weekend refurbishing my Jack. I can't seem to get the top screw out, is there a trick? I saw Treeroot post there was a clip, but unsure of where or how to release it.
Just got done dipping the main sections of the stock Asian Carb, and the top and middle pieces came out great, but the base is not so hot.
After Dipping; it was a pretty nice, other than the cylinder edges, then the whole thing started oxidizing right away with a...
Ok... So the PO stated when I bought the vehicle that he had replaced the alternator with a high output single wire AC Delco (unknown amps) internal regulator to run the snow plow he had installed and that the ammeter was not hooked up. He had also replaced the points with electronic. So as I...
I might be crazy or looking at this wrong, but why on earth would there be a grounding strap between the clutch slave and the frame? I'm thinking it should be a starter ground and replaced! Yes, I am in the process of removing the shields for blasting and paint, 38 years of dirt and grime!
I've been scanning this site for awhile, both at home and abroad just waiting for an FJ40 to drop some dough on and throw in my garage. I finally found a one owner, 59,000 mile, 1977 (11/76 production) FJ40 in Freeborn Red. The previous owner had used it sparingly over the past...
