I still have the 60. I pulled the ads down for the summer as we did quite a few camping trips in it. Must have forgotten this post. I've also done a bit more work to it since I posted the ads;
• Dual battery set up is now complete.
• Aluminum radiator and new water pump.
• New carb...
Thanks Mace. The price is intended to be a starting negotiation point. I am definitely willing to come down, within reason. I have seen 60s that are in not nearly as good a shape as mine go for more than the 17k asking (think 20-25, and this does not include TLC) here in LA. I do think that the...
Unfortunately I need to part with my 60. Lots going on in life and I need to free up some cash. Take a look at the sale thread and let me know if you guys think Im out of line.
Unfortunately, I need to part with my recently completed FJ60.
This has been a ground up re-build over the last 4 years with a focus on becoming a solid expedition ready vehicle. Beginning with a solid, low rust 1982 FJ60 with a recently rebuilt original motor, I have gone through...
Just to close this loop, Richard did an amazing job getting my cruiser back in order. In short, some dirt in the carb was the main issue.
This rig runs amazing now and I think that my mileage has also improved quite a bit. Running a full tank and will report back if my mileage is better than...
Picking up my 60 from K&H this afternoon. New fuel pump, carb opened up and cleaned out (apparently it was full o crap), fuel lines blown out, new filter as well, exhaust leak (manifold) fixed and valves readjusted. Richard says it's running like a dream!! Can't wait to take it for a spin!
Loaded it up on the truck this morning and sent it off to K&H. Hoping to hear back with some results in the next couple days.
On another note, is it just me or does a 60 even look cool on a flatbed??
Oh, and AAA took 2 freakin hours this morning!!
Well, I had a spare fuel pump and no vacuum gauge handy so I threw it in. Same deal.
I'm going to call Richard at K&H in the morning and see if I can get it down there before I need to be at the office.
Thanks orbittron, that sounds like good advice to me. I'll take a look there. Also sounds similar to John McVicker's diagnosis.
John McVicker, was just up in your area on the way back south from Mammoth. Beautiful county you live in. Also just signed up for the Whitney lottery and am hoping I...
I didn't alter anything in the engine compartment other than the choke cable and now, the temp sender wire. Everything else is as before paint and body. Thats the weird thing, was running great from Agoura to Topanga Canyon Blvd, then it just fell on its face. Something changed, or...
Yup Richard. Yup exhaust leak. And yup, the tap is on the green and goes to ground. It is, however, on the opposite side of the connector from where you did your white wire to ground. Not that that would make a difference, 12v is 12v.
I'm thinking I may just have this thing sent to him on...
Ok, I finally got the opportunity to run through my checklist. Unfortunately, nothing has worked yet.
I did find that Spike was right, the temp sender wire had indeed shorted causing the temp gauge issue. I also verified that the carb is getting fuel, and that the sight...
