    Tires and wheels help

    Thanks Beringer! I'm going to a friends house in a couple hours to continue working on my FJ. When the lighting is good I will post up a picture of the Australian spec BJ40 with the stock wheels that have "Australia" stamped on the inner ring. My spare wheel on the back is the "for sure" stock...

    Tires and wheels help

    Ambrew, how can I know if it's stock? Measurements? Also. Anyone know how to identify my spare OEM wheel. Since I have a 77' w/ disc brakes... I want to know what it will fit on all four sides in case I need it.

    Tires and wheels help

    John, I thought the same but I've seen other foreign spec FJs with the exact rims. They even say Toyota and the country name on the inside edge around the lug nut area.

    Tires and wheels help

    Hey Guys, First issue, I got a new set of Enduro M/T 31.5x10.5x15 tires for my stock 77' FJ40 last week and they just aren't my cup of tea. I want to put some 33x10.5x15's on there instead. I have 7 inches of clearance from the bottom of the front fender, 5" from the side of the tie rod to the...

    BJ40 Transfer Case Drain Bolt Vibrated loose on a long highway drive....

    Can anyone tell me if the internal parts of the USA transfer case will be the same as the internal parts for the Australian diesel transfer case? I know the shifters for the T-case have a different pattern but the transmission shop says that it could be a match. Right now we are having trouble...

    BJ40 Transfer Case Drain Bolt Vibrated loose on a long highway drive....

    Good replies. However, while I have some moderate mechanical experience, I've never worked on any drivetrain/transmission type work. Is it likely a repair will make the T-case quiet again? I think I may need to assume that the gears got hot since there is no telling how long I drove that road...

    BJ40 Transfer Case Drain Bolt Vibrated loose on a long highway drive....

    What are the odds that the drain bolt of the transfer case vibrates loose on the highway during a 3 hour drive? That's what happened a month ago driving from Asheville, NC to Charlotte, NC in my immaculate frame off restored Australian right hand drive 1978 BJ40 with the B diesel engine and the...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    Commercial aviation is well aware. Some flights are routed specifically around certain solar flare activity areas. Boeing continues to build some manually controlled aircraft (with assistance of hydraulics) while Airbus builds mostly vulnerable (but cheaper to build) fly by wire systems...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    Finally, a subject is found that hasn't been covered 5 times on Mud and now all the @$$holes that always say "this has already been covered" says "oh this is unlikely, you wear tin foil etc.. etc". I already stated that it's unlikely at the beginning of this post ... So thanks for stating the...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    I think there are too many variables for a single test to be comparable but I really don't now. i.e. what is the strength and proximity to the EMP. As of right now, I'm going to procure just a few extra electrical parts. So far, I already have an extra working; starter w/solenoid alternator...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    That is very :censor:cool, however the cruisers are a bit more practical and already on hand for most of us. When I was in the army we did run those on just about any clean oil filtered to 20 micron.....

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    Uh.. Jim I don't know what the ignitor box is.... But yes, all my parts are stock... Atlas, quit wasting space in the cloud. If you aren't interested in the topic then piss off. Obviously if FOX, CNN, and major news outlets are covering this story about the possibility of an EMP threat then...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    Running or not doesn't matter. I'm seeking people who know about what electronic components of the engines are vulnerable and you are off of the thread topic. You didn't read the articles I posted and EMP's don't kill people;) ....as the articles and others discuss, it is a nuclear weapon...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    Watrob-My BJ40 very very basic B engine can run on almost any plant oil due to its indirect injection, and the FJ40 will run on ethanol, propane (with the forklift kit installed), avgas, mogas, etc etc. I don't need electricity at a gas station to get plant oils in the BJ40 or make ethanol for...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    So you don't think the voltage regulator for the alternator would be sensitive to an EMP? Where do I plan on driving to- To get all the stuff all will need to outlast all the futile minded. Who knows, maybe I'll start a Monroe Republic (for those of you who watched revolution) but either way the...

    How to make a FJ40 and BJ40 EMP proof??

    There has been a lot of talk lately in the past week and months in the major news outlets and halls of government about the dangers and vulnerabilities of electronics to Electro Magnetic Pulses (EMP) either created from the detonation of a high altitude nuclear bomb explosion or a sun fart...

    2F Engine Rebuild - the Vae Victus way

    I'm rebuilding a 76' 2f now, domed pistons, mine has already been stripped, dipped and cleaned at the CARQUEST Machine shop near my home in Asheville. The crank has been turned as well. Here's the deal, my machine shop and my friend/professional mechanic says 99% of the time you can re-use your...

    40 stripped by thieves and starting over....again.

    Major bummer man. I second the craigslist check as even check the classifieds on here. Further it's likely the guy was a cruiser owner if he took cruiser specific parts. I'd look up some baseball players for the pipe job.
