I am on the hunt for a RH side rear window for my barn door equipped FJ61. The part # is 68131-90A07.
I've seen them come up on Australia Ebay, but nobody wants to ship to US. Toyota doesn't have any in the US either. Anybody have an idea where I might be able to source one?
I think my springs are pre Dakar, so I can't say with certainty that this applies to your springs.
When I took mine apart, I replaced the center pin with a a 3/8-13 socket head bolt of the appropriate length. The head was the perfect diameter to fit in the spring perch, with just a bit of force...
As someone who daily drives a JDM FJ61, and has fixed a lot of things on it, here's a non exhaustive list of thing I've come across:
Throttle, hand throttle, and choke cables are different
Clutch master is different
Body tub is different and won't fit retractable passenger seat belts
I think if anything the lack of a secondary would give you better mileage at the expense of power. With a non-opening secondary I get 17mpg doing 105kph on the interstate and 14-15mpg in town.
I'd be down for a set.
I recently discovered the same thing on my carb. The diaphragm that operates the secondary is all dry and cracked. I tried to fix it by smearing it with silicon to fill in the cracks but I think it's too creased. Cruiseroutfitters is the only place I've found that sells the 81-87 diaphragm, but...
There should be two vac lines off the dissy cap. One goes to somewhere on the air cleaner to provide a light vacuum. The other goes to a small air cleaner which I think is on the firewall. This system cycles air through the dissy to prevent corrosion.
I replaced my factory points dissy with an electronic ignition one from a US truck. I just ran one line to the air cleaner for the light vacuum and the other to an filter in the firewall. The electronic ignition itself produces corrosive gas and that's why you need to draw in fresh air.
I am very interested in a set front vent windows! I say cruiseryard selling an OEM Aussie set not too long ago but they wanted $500 and that's too much for me. An aftermarket option would be amazing.
That 160 project sounds awesome. I'm looking forward to the build thread.
Run it until it dies and then look at the sight glass and see whether you have the proper level of fuel in the float bowl. If there's no fuel then you have a fuel delivery issue, if fuel is at the right level then look elsewhere.
Steering columns almost never wear out. If you're having steering issues it's likely steering box or tie rods. Are you experiencing problems and if so what are they? As far as the box is concerned I don't know that pulling it out is gonna help "check for wear and tear." Everyone I know who's...
Some might have 4 square headlights instead of the two round headlights like an FJ60. Some HJ61s have a higher roofline. The diesels don't have the little vents behind the front fenders like the US 60s, but at a small scale I don't think that would matter.
Welcome to mud!
Nothing has stranded me away from home. I've had to stop on the side of the road to clean junk out of my jets. I had my dissy cap come off while driving and had to bend the rotor back into shape with my leatherman and ziptie the cap back in place, also on the side of the road. I had my slave...
