    It runs! Just drove it around the block. Thanks @jonheld

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    Well, the gate is moving freely, and it returns to the closed position on its own. I didn't add any lube to the hinge. I plugged the connector back in, and turned the key to the on position - fuel pump does not come on! I put the AFM back together and I'm going to let the silicone dry for an...

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    Well, I opened up the AFM to take a look. The gate is moving more freely as I work it back and forth, and it will now return to the closed position on its own. It may have just gotten stiff from sitting so long. But it's definitely not loose enough to open by blowing on it. As far as I can...

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    If it's supposed to move that easily, wouldn't lubricating it help? I don't follow on why that would be a bad idea? Unless I used a type of lube that would be bad for the sensors or rubber hose. I've been wanting to do an MAF replacement for a long time. Splitsec has (or had) a kit for it...

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    I didn't remove the distributor or any part of the ignition system, besides spark plugs. I did double check that the wires were going to the correct plugs.

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    Yep, that didn't seem right to me either. I'll mess with it some more after breakfast and see if I can figure out what's wrong with it. Maybe the hinge just needs some lubrication?

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    I haven't checked for spark - it will fire, but not run. It just coughs and dies. I suppose I could have spark on some cylinders and not others.

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    @jonheld I unplugged the AFM, and the fuel pump stopped running. I removed the AFM to check the gate, and it seems to be swinging freely. It will stay in whatever position I put it. The pins and connector look fine, no bends or breaks. A few years ago I disassembled the AFM to fix a broken...

    Fuel pump won't stop priming, engine won't start (3FE)

    My rig is a 1991 with the 3FE. I just finished replacing the head gasket. I put everything back together, and now I can't get it to start. Whenever the ignition is on, the fuel pump runs constantly instead of just for a moment to prime the lines. It will run as long as I leave the key on -...

    Does anyone know if SplitSec is still selling the MAF conversion kit for the 3FE? The link on their website is down. 1992 Land Cruiser MAF Conversion I emailed them, but since they're shut down from the quarantine I'm not sure when I'll hear back. I've been looking forward to getting one...

    Transmission slipping - any ideas?

    Got a 91 FJ80 with the A440 transmission. After some hard driving in the snow a couple weeks ago, it’s started slipping when it shifts from 2nd to 3rd gear. What do you guys think? Worn clutch? I already tried changing the fluid, no effect.

    Running a 3fe on wood gas?

    I have far more curiosity and ambition than time, I'm afraid. :D With the way the world is going, seems like this may be a useful mod to have someday, so I'd like to get a leg up on the know-how. Sounds like we've got similar thoughts about the 3fe being an ideal engine for this. Nice thing...

    Running a 3fe on wood gas?

    Wood gas vehicles: firewood in the fuel tank Anyone here ever build a setup like this for a 3fe? I'd love to hear about it. How easy/hard was the project? How well did it run? Any issues?

    Anyone know who makes these bullbars?

    Anyone know who makes these bullbars?

    Saw this for sale on a Facebook group. I really like the design, but unfortunately it was in Australia. I've seen pictures of this style before, and I'm wondering who makes them - and more importantly - can you get one in the US?
