    Synthetic Engine Oil on older 2F

    Thanks I appreciate the tip. I would think Valvoline VR-1 racing oil would have that, I will do some research.

    Synthetic Engine Oil on older 2F

    I am running a rebuilt 2f in my 72 Fj-40 and was wondering if anyone recommends anything other than a good synthetic. I am know there are die hards for specific brands etc. Just curious what others are running and their experience.

    Best Replacement Dizzy for 2F

    Can you get a new igniter, as that seems to struggle at times when the engine is cold, otherwise it starts right up.

    Best Replacement Dizzy for 2F

    Been a bit since I have been on the forums since my build was completed, but am at the point where I am looking into some upgrades for my FJ-40. I have a hybrid ride with a 12/72 frame/body with a 1985 2F, and FJ-60 Power Steering and front discs. My old dizzy and igniter is getting tired...

    Power Vs Manual drum brakes and other brake related questions.

    I did my rig 3 years ago so am not 100% positive but I am almost positive I went with 10mm. I also used NI- CAD line and it has been great. Here are some pics. My finished product is disks in the front and drum in the rear and it works awesome. I found donor parts from a 60 series for the...

    Power Vs Manual drum brakes and other brake related questions.

    I have a 12/72 FJ-40 and put Power Steering and discs on it. I scavenged parts from a 60 series and it is great. I did have a guru put them on for me as I ran out of time and lost my shop in the middle of a move. I would highly recommend it if you will do any road time. If it is going...

    Broken Transfer Case

    Thanks Pin Head. My follow up question would be could my Auburn Locker, even though I had only just shifted into 4 Wheel Drive High while not moving, have been the cause of the bustification? My only rational thought was that it had to have been the drive shaft since when I climbed under...

    Broken Transfer Case

    Been quite a bit since I posted. Life always gets in the way. Looking for a little insight about fixing my broken transfer case. I have a 72 Fj-40 with a 79 4 speed tranny. Long story short what I believe happened is my drive shaft came off of the transfer case yolk and spun up and broke...

    Fj40 original paint under floor

    I am no expert by any means but it almost looks like a weldable primer of some sort. Does it look like another restoration had been done on it or is this the only place you are seeing this. Tub looks pretty good from what is seen in the Northeast.

    Leaking Oil Pan Fix

    Ok so I finished the job and it is rock solid. I also put JB Weld around the fill plug and a few of the pressed spots for the skid plate for safe measure. Had it back together and have been driving it for two days and it is still dry as a bone. Oh, sweet success. I also fixed two pesky...

    I used Marsh Racing Wheels and opted for 16" Steelies. They make 15" too I believe.

    Leaking Oil Pan Fix

    So I have been chasing an oil pan leak since I got my rig on the road over a year ago and it was making me nuts. Finally got tired of it and pulled the pan, but how to find the leak? I got the bright idea to pull it, clean it up and then fill it with water. I then put the compressor to the...
