    Drum brake screech.

    My brakes are REALLY loud, and pull to the right and grab when cold. Much better when warmed up but the screech is still there. I have replaced the pads about a year ago and put new pistons in the front. It seems to have made things worse. I have also tightened to right brake slightly in...

    Hard top restoration.

    overall my hard top is in good shape, but I fear that if I do not address a few things soon it will not be in great shape for too much longer. I have some rust bubbling through on the rain gutter. Nothing inside, it’s all on the outer edge. The top was repainted and the paint did not adhere...

    Drilling holes for rear emblems

    my 73 was a FST, with the spare on the passenger side, and emblems on the left. The rear panels were replaced some time ago and the emblems were never added. I have a set, and am looking for a template or measurements for where exactly to drill the holes for the TLC and 4WD emblems. I would...

    For Sale Large con-fer roof rack.

    i have a large con-fer roof rack. This is the one that is slightly larger than the Fj40 roof. It includes 6 brackets, not sure of the size but they are a touch too small for an Fj40 roof (the roof rack will touch the roof). All could use a paint job. I bought it off a guy who used it on a...

    dimensions for cooler/jerry can swing out?

    I am going to have a swing out tire holder / jerry can carrier made for my FJ40. I have been reading around a lot and understand there are some issues with the Man-A-Fre rear swing out not allowing enough space for some popular cooler sizes. Can any suggest ideal inner measurements to allow...

    2nd rear hatch handle broken this year...

    The first one was poorly adjusted, and needed a good tug to open the rear hatch. This lead to it cracking. When I replaced it I adjusted all the linkage to avoid any extra muscle. After about 6 months I cracked another one. What gives? I have read these should be lubed, but I didn't find...

    Two bolt shackle mounts for winch recovery?

    My 40 has a custom bumper on it, basically a big slab of steel welded to the frame. There are 2 sets of 2 holes on each side. I assume these are for shackle mounts? I need to measure them but has anyone seen 2 bolt shackle mounts? Or maybe there are for something else. I have seen a few two...

    Tire chain reccomedation.

    I am heading up to Tahoe in a few weeks. I suspect there will not be much snow, but Donner Pass requires you have chains in the car when there is any snow (as I understand it). My 73 FJ40 is sitting on 32x11.5 BFGs. Is there a recommended set? Also front and back or just two wheels...

    Two days ago a new squeak started to appear on my Fj40. It appears after driving for about 20 minutes. It is tied to the engine speed and sometimes stops for a second when accelerating. Wheel speed has no effect. I was worried that it was a bearing or something but now think it’s just a...

    Clutch adjustment or new clutch?

    On My 73 - I have replaced both the master and slave clutch cylinders. I fumbled my way though the adjustment, and got it working as expected but have never really understood the full adjustment process. Fools rush in. I was doing a 3 point turn yesterday I went to drive up onto the sidewalk...

    Front axle leaking

    Walked my truck yesterday and noticed a nice pile of oil under the front axle. It appears to be coming from the gasket where the shaft meets the front diff. I am guessing this requires removing the front axle pretty completely. This has always dripped a little bit, but nothing like this...
