That housing looks the same as mine which is cool. Sheet metal
i could be wrong I but think they went to plastic and larger after ‘73
But yea idk why mine is a 6 bolt. Unless it was messed with in the passed.
Either way, Any bolt type I can make work, it’s just trying to find blower motor that...
so here’s my blower housing. As you can see it’s all chewed up. I grinder off rust.
But this housing has like a 6 bolt motor and it’s made of sheer metal. It’s also significantly smaller than the plastic 3 bolt housing I see online.
the plastic 3 boots housing do not fit on my early ‘73...
Thank you all.
i recently ordered a 373HP Chevy 350 crate from blueprintengines.com with a holley sniper.
I figured with the sniper kit, I’m @ at least 400HP
more than I want or need.
Will my stock fj55 drive train be ok?
I’m on 33” Tires.
No that’s ok. That’s actually the whole reason I’m putting the ‘84 gears in because I want the 3.70 ratio. I’m using a TH350 3 speed trans in my fj55 and want good highway gearing. (I’m not wheeling this)
I’m reading that I can drill my own holes or buy a multi hole flange. So that answers my...
I found a truck for $400 with a good 5.3 LS and 4l60e.
Ordered the adaptors off advance adaptors too 👍🏻👍🏻
back the driveline question again, should I keep my stock axles?
I was thinking of making hybrids but I’m not super knowledgeable on this....
keep my housing and axles...
I believe anything before 1978 is 4.11 course spline so I think I have 4.11 and I have 33’s
i’d like to be able to do 75mph ok With the 3 speed.
But i think I have the funds do LS swap if I decide that. 😬😬
I think my last question, is what are most people doing for the T-case if...
cool, that’s helpful. I didn’t know if changing my axles was overkill or not for my purpose. I’ll keep them.
I seriously have been going back and forth for days about whether I should do LS swap or not. I just bought the fj55. And it’s in great shape.
If I don’t do LS, I like the sniper idea...
i have a stock ‘73 FJ55 with a worn out Chevy 350 and Chevy 3 speed trans.
im considering LS swap with LS trans.
QUESTION: Do I really need to upgrade axles & Gears?
I will NOT be using this off road, other than the beach. It will be a street cruiser.
