    Wanted  3B engine in reasonable condition

    Hi Guys, The 3b on my 12 volt 84 bj60 is really hosed now. I'm looking for a motor that can limp me through 3-4 more years without needing a rebuild. I'm located in seattle area. Thanks!

    Diagnose Last Nights Steering Pump Thing

    I had some sort of steering pump issue and I'd like some eyes on what happened. I've no experience with steering pump. Last night I had to do some extreme parking.

    Door Seam Rust - The consequences of chronic neglect can be dire.

    OMG. I think this is beyond my skills. I think I need a new door. And a paper bag to breathe into. Like the dentist says you gotta floss twice a day. Doctors tell diabetics to stay on top of their blood sugar. And fj60 owners need to stay on top of proper drainage and sealing. Whatever that...

    Hi Again and Rusty A-Pillar

    Hi folks. I can't believe how long its been since I visited this site. I'm seriously stupid for not looking things up here. The amount of good work and knowledge recorded here is just stunning. I spent a year trying to treat/stabilize rust chemically: por15 (too toxic!), zero rust, rust...

    new bj60 in seattle

    Hi folks, This forum is an amazing asset and part of the reason I committed to a bj60. I imported mine a few weeks ago from 2hrs north in BC. Its an 84, early axt turbo, ome springs, no pyro or boost gauges. While I was looking I had names for each candidate to keep them straight, the one I...
