    HFS vs. OME lift kit?

    Hey all, I've got a stock '73 Fj40 on 33s. I want a proper 2.5" lift. I've heard great things about OME but I've also found this "Hell For Stout" kit, which claims to be the softest riding lift kit for 40s. I don't know much about lift kits... Does anyone have experience with these and could...

    Engine help! New HEI Distributor, intermittent spark.

    Hey guys. Old distributor went out so I ordered a new one. I set it to fire on TDC compression stroke. According to my timing light, it's getting inconsistent spark. Why could this be? I believe power to the distributor is constant. Thanks for any help!

    Hey guys, anyone understand HEI style distributors? I'm running one of those internal-coil distributors the PO installed. Basically the motor died while driving. Got it home, here's the conclusion. The spark plugs are getting intermittent spark. It won't stay running because it cuts out and...

    Any suggestions for a Quiet, High-Flow Muffler?

    Hi, I've got 6-into-1 headers on my 1973 F motor. I want a muffler relatively quiet but something I can hear at idle. Preferably quiet at high RPMs. But I also would like something High-Flow if possible. Or at least, I don't want a muffler to add backpressure as a compromise for being quiet. I...

    Locating Original Owner - Any Suggestions?

    About 4 years ago, I bought my 1973 FJ40 from someone who I knew was at least the 3rd owner. He doesn't have the contact of who he bought it from. I posted in the 40 series section because I believe this problem is much more relevant with pre-1980s vehicles, since this was before the 17-digit...

    Which carburetors *actually work* for an FJ40??

    Disclaimer, this is a bitchy thread but I just want to start some conversation. I'll start my question by giving some background. I bought a 1973 FJ40 with the original motor a few years ago and I rebuilt the motor. Mechanically, the engine should be near perfect. Unfortunately, one of the...

    Rear Jump Seats Do Not Match (1973 USDM FJ40)

    Hi, this is peculiar. One of my jump seats sits too far toward the center of the vehicle, and the rubber feet don't sit where they're supposed to. I attached pictures of the mechanism on the seat which pushed it out farther. I'm assuming this can't be factory... Was one of my seats replaced...
