I'm repainting my truck. I'm putting my front side lights on now. Does the fat end of the side light gasket face the front or rear of my truck? I checked out pictures and I see it both ways. I'm sure one way is correct. Thanks
Does the wide side of the headlight bezel go on the top or...
I have a 2/1971 FST FJ40. It has a hard top bolted on it. The hard top sides have the single side window. I notice there is a later model with the side window with vent windows. Will these side panels fit on my FJ40? I like the idea of rear vented windows.
On my early 1971 FJ40 the wiring diagram shows the emergency flasher has an inline fuse. I pulled the plug off the back of the switch and none of the pins have power. Can anyone give me a clue where to find this fuse. It's the last electrical component I need to get working.
I have a 2/1971 FJ40 FST. I've been slowly getting this truck running. Right now it has s hard top on it. It's a FST when it was new. There is a wire on the driver side windshield. It goes up the side and over to the wiper motor. Half way up the windshield a wire splits off the wiper harness...
I just put in all new wheel cylinders, master cylinder and s refurbished brake booster on my 2-1971 FJ40
After bleeding the brakes the pedal needs one push and release to get the brakes working.
If I hold the pedal down 1/2 inch then they work all the time.
I didn't change the rubber brake...
On my early 1971 truck I had the horns working correctly after I installed a new horn relay.
Now they don't work. Somehow the wire that enters the steering column near the fire wall fell out. Now I have a grommet in the steering column and a wire that goes in it hanging outside. This wire goes...
I just installed a OEM rebuilt carb. It seems to work great. I'm having trouble understanding all the adjustments. Read the F-engine and Haynes books. Too many carb models in the same book. Anyway I figured there must be a carb expert out there who brain I can pick.
I have located the idle...
This box is under my dash on my 1971 FJ 40.
It's next to the signal flasher
I googled the part number and it came up as a speed marker. I went to some web sites they state the speed marker is in the speedo cable.
I'm lost with this thing and what it does. It's not on any wiring diagrams...
Hi have 2/1971 FJ40
I have a vacuum switching valve. It connects to my carb choke, dizzy, and base of the carb
The vacuum seems to come from the air filter assembly.
I can't find any information of the switching valve of what controls or works. Where do the connected wires come from.
I have a 71 FJ40 FST with canvas doors. I need door seals, and can't find any on the usual sites. Anyone know of a substitute door seal I can use.

I just found on my recently acquired 1971 FJ40 the heat riser cover and bimetal control are missing. Also the rod is missing. I don't know if it was removed or if it rotted away. If the rod rotted away, then what happened to the butterfly? My question is, has anyone run their truck without the...
I have a 71. FJ40. Between the front hood and the windshield is a air vent. This air vent has drain holes on it. It seems to drain into the car. Anyone know how this is supposed to be rigged up so the water drains outside. It's all new to me
