    Purchased an 80 Series as a family vehicle but who are we kidding? It won't stay stock for long

    Had this happen on my 91 & it was a relay. EFI relay if I remember right... ignition relay makes more sense but could be EFI relay cuts power to ignition if not engaged. Just something to check...

    ....Also overdrove the seal a bit using a 1-1/16 socket as a seal driver - almost a perfect match for the seal dia..

    91 FJ-80 Birf wear - how much is too much?

    Thanks guys! Here's what I ended up doing: Had a friend who is expert with a TIG & has a lathe lay in a bead of Silicon Bronze Alloy & machine it flush. Got it all back together now. Seems to be working well so far. I was only able to get about a quart of gear oil in the diff due to sludge so...

    91 FJ-80 Birf wear - how much is too much?

    Yeah, I'm hoping this groove isn't too bad... was thinking of getting the "heavy duty" seals that Cruiser outfitters had, but hadn't see my axles yet. Here is a pic of the axle...

    91 FJ-80 Birf wear - how much is too much?

    91 FJ-80 Birf wear - how much is too much?

    Thanks guys, Will take a close look at the shafts & spindles, but don't remember any grooves... yeah the fill plug was seized bad. Made the mistake of starting with a 12pt socket & rounded it off a bit. Got one of those Irwin extractor sockets just in case, will try some heat 1st...

    91 FJ-80 Birf wear - how much is too much?

    91FJ 80 Brake light on dash stays on...

    Update: First off - having trouble finding the part through parts stores ... is this a dealer only item? Second, kind of weird coincidence(or not...)? Driving down the highway with cruise control engaged & no light on dash. Cruise control kicks off & dash light comes on! ... is it possible...
