    Fuel Tank Cleaning with Electrolysis FJ60

    Have a question for those who have used electrolysis to remove rust from steel parts, particularly those with closed interior access, such as fuel tanks. My FJ60 fuel tank had a thin layer of rust inside. Not bad, but enough that the loose rust powder was clogging the filter. I removed the...

    2F Broken Crankshaft!!

    Hello all, Just discovered the crankshaft in my 1970 FJ40 is broken. Heres the background: 1975 2F swapped in before I bought the truck five years ago.

    Stock FJ62 with 31" Hankook Dynapro MTs

    Hello all, just thought I'd share the pics of our stock '88 FJ62 with new 31x10.50x15 Hankook Dynapro MTs. Had 31" tires on already, but they were street tires and low on tread. I've had these same tires in a different size on another truck and was pleased with them. Cheaper than the BFG KM2s...

    FJ62 Transmission Success Story!! and kickdown cable how-to

    Howdy all. Little background: 1988 FJ62 172k miles, all stock. Only had it about 5k miles. Runs and drives great. About a month ago I noticed it started upshifting later and later in the rpm. It got progressively worse. After a few days it was basically undriveable because it would only shift...

    Wanted  A440F FJ62 Auto Trans, San Antonio, TX

    Looking for a used, but operating A440F for my 1988 FJ62. Ours is in the process of crapping out. I have a Vortec/4L60E swap in the future, but need the rig to be driving in the meantime. I figured it would be much cheaper to find a used trans rather than having mine rebuilt. I am located...

    FJ62 Thermostat Replacement

    Hello all, Figured I'd post this as encouragement to others about to or currently doing this. Started to replace the thermostat on the wife's '88 62 a few days ago. Of course it wasn't the several hour job it should have been. 2 of the 4 bolts holding the upper thermostat housing to the...
