    Market value F or 2F

    I occasionally see F and 2F motors come up for sale and am tempted to pick one up as a spare while they are relatively easy to get. My 72 FJ40 has the F motor it was built with. It runs strong but uses a quart of oil about every 2K miles. I am interested in opinions on the market value of F...

    I have 4 questions about the wiring on a March 72 FJ40. I've had the wiring harness out and replaced everything on it that was questionable. The truck is a 1972 with a 1978 4 speed trans and disk brake front axle. It has a later brake master cylinder without the 2 pressure switches. I had...

    Stock steel wheel coating & color

    I Just received a new set of stock steel 15 x 5.5" rims & caps from Toyota for my '72 FJ40. I expected them to be only in primer so had planned on painting them grey but they appear to have a semi gloss black powder coat. If that is what it is, any paint I could use would be nowhere near as...

    Is this normal??? I'm putting the spider gears back in the rear differential after having the rear axles out to change the seals. The cylindrical spacer that goes on the pinion mate shaft between the spider gears seems very sloppy lengthwise on the shaft. This is the spacer that the axle...

    OK I found a place to rebuild my 1972 brake booster and need to replace the master cylinder. I have a 1978 front axle with disk brakes. Will later year master cylinder designed to feed front disks & rear drums fit my booster? What are all of you out there with pre '75 40s & disk brakes...

    Putting my '72 FJ40 back together and hate to bolt anything questionable back onto it. It has been converted to disk brakes on the front axle. I suspect the brake booster wasn't functioning completely and the bore of the master cylinder is badly pitted although it seemed to still be working...

    I ordered a manifold gasket for my 1F engine from Advance Auto. Received the part complete with 2 heat riser gaskets for a 2F. Invoice shows "1F manifold gasket". The gasket fits over the studs but just looks way too big for the area it has to cover. Is the same gasket used for both...
