    Roll over question

    Good point on the oil in the piston. I did think that I had more valve noise at idle than usual afterwards. How does one get the oil out if there is any? Just cylce it for a while?

    Stock 77-Flat spot in acceleration

    Input please?? Wanted to bring this back to the front. I replaced all the lines, well I ran out of hose after buying 21 feet! It was all they had so probably needed 30... In any case can anyone tell me if I can eliminate any of this vacuum hose rats nest that isn't important to the...

    Ok i know its in here somewhere??

    Thank you for the input I replaced all the hoses, well almost all as I bought 21 feet (all they had) and still was short! I cut the ends off of a couple old ones and used them instead for just a couple shorter sections. I was able to bring up the vacuum to 16 at idle but it moves a small...

    wiring nightmare

    Yellow wire Hi, I own a 77 FJ40 that has points and the ignitor. It took me 3 weeks to find why I had no spark and in the end after replacing the coil, coil wire and banging my head a few times not wanting to f** with the points, the points themselves had a hairline crack in the spring band...

    Ok i know its in here somewhere??

    Thanks for the advice and will do on the thread. My initial reading was 8! I only cut the ends off of the three lines that go into the manifold fitting and it went up to 15 (or down to) Hmmm vacuum leak perhaps? I think I might be due for some new lines. Will start that thread though and see...
