    1994 FJ80 won't start

    Background: I had a low oil pressure situation that wiped out some bearings. Changing the rod bearings didn't fix the issue so I got a low mileage (about 147,000) from a 1997 FZJ80 to put in while I rebuild the original motor. Since the motor was on a stand I figured I would do the head gasket...

    Valve Stem Seals

    Propane Tank Location

    I am converting my FJ40 to propane. I am going to use forklift propane tanks and am trying to figure out where to mount them. Many people bolt them to the floor behind the seats but I would rather not do that due to the loss of storage space. In addition I put the top on the vehicle and would...

    1979 2f Ignition single spark

    Hey ladies and gentlemen, I picked up a non running 1974 FJ40 with a 1979 2f in it. As far as I can tell the distributor is the stock 1979 dual vacuum advance dizzy that should be on the motor. For some reason, I can't get a very good spark out of it. When I first got it, it had a mini truck...

    Spark Plug Wire

    Anybody ever seen this happen to a plug wire before? It looks like the outer material dried up and turned into powder. I'm not sure how old the wires are. I can't remember changing them so they are at least 2-3 years old. The motor was rebuilt by the PO about 6 years ago so I'm sure they were...
