    Carb Rebuild

    I know, I should pay more attention it's been discussed before... I need someone to rebuild a california 1978 carburetor that is disassembled in a box. Don't ask any questions, I don't wish to discuss the details. Lol Anyone out there that does good work without laughing at me? (I couldn't do it!)

    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!

    Had my stock shackles and bushings replaced, now angle of front shackles don't match. Should they? I never even noticed it before, but I didn't specifically look. Original owner, stock suspension.

    Rear Winch

    Has anyone mounted any kind of winch on the back of their 40? Saw an old military truck that had some kind of weird hookup going under the truck and out the rear! Bizarre, looked crazy dangerous! This got me thinking about my years with my 1978 fj40. I'm original owner so have good records...

    1978 shift knobs

    The shift knobs on my 78 are in good condition, but the stickers on them showing shift patterns are long gone. Anyone seen any? I really don't want to change the knobs, I'm the original owner and they're the original knobs.

    Transfer Case Breather

    I want to try to remove breather on my transfer case and clean it until I can get time to install vent hose to firewall. With enough contortion I've found I can reach it "sorta". How is it held in place? Threaded? Press fit? Is it identical to the axle breathers? It feels like there's a hex...
