    I can't get to my records right now for part number, but about 6 years ago I took my old smog pump into NAPA Auto Parts near me when they weren't busy. They helped me look through their rebuilt smog pump catalog which has pictures. Looked under Toyota in years around 1978(my fj49 year) and...

    Oil pressure sender

    Post what you find out. I have a '78 fj40 (9/77 build) with the same problem. Got busy at work and had to stop messing with it for a while, but what I found out is there are a few different senders right around that time period. If you own a 78 get used to this sort of part # issue. I blew...

    Drop the oil pan and look around. Metal in the bottom? Check out from the bottom before really tearing into anything.

    The unfindable vacuum leak

    Disconnect distributor advance line at carb. Put vacuum to it(suck)! Does air just come through? Blow in it does it seem open? Didn't see year but if vacuum retard you might not easily notice a leaking diaphragm. I pulled the hose at the dizzy and plugged with a bolt. Wow! Power! Lol

    Thoughts on selling hard top and just going with Trollhole?

    Bought my fj40 new in 1978. Number 2 lesson I learned after all these years... NEVER SELL ANYTHING YOU TAKE OFF OF YOUR LANDCRUISER! Someday you'll cry yourself to sleep over it. Hang it from the ceiling in the bedroom if you have to!

    Shift Knob Caps

    I seem to remember seeing years ago someone making replacement caps for shift knobs. Anyone know where I might find them now? I know I can buy new ones, but I'm kinda sentimental since they're the original knobs from when I bought it new in 1978. Just passed 500k miles a few months ago!

    Putting the hardtop back on

    When taking the top off for summer, we never disassemble the sides from the top. It's designed to just stay together and lift off. I made a pulley system in the garage to make it easy.

    Striped 40?

    Three weeks after I bought my fj40 in 1978 I scratched the drivers side to metal... Time to add a stripe! I liked the orange against the dune beige. The whole stripe screen was just to set up the rhino heads in the doors! Repainted 2 years ago and still thinking about putting them back...
