    Lug Nut Correctness

    The 40 nuts are a pretty durable design, its the chrome covered ones that are on my 62 that seem to get messed up. Not to mention some of the sports cars that have lug nuts that feel like they are made from recycled beer cans! On my non modern vehicles, I am the only one that turns the lug nuts...

    Lug Nut Correctness

    I think you should go back to anti seize, if for no other reason to prevent galling. I always put a light coat on the studs. It only takes one jerk at a tire shop to ruin a stud with an air wrench. Those lugs take a lot of abuse, heat and environmental.

    alternator not charging..

    FWIW, if it turns out that the alternator is bad I would suggest rebuilding yours or buying a factory reconditioned one from Toyota. I had terrible luck with two cheapo big box store alternators in my 88.

    Battery reversed polarity during charge, what did it mess up?

    Make sure you replace it with a wire that will protect you again.

    Wanted Smog pump & alternator belt tensioners

    I think you could have garnished it with some 1975 Fj40 brochures, large keys, or TEQ flashlights. I am usually drooling by the last picture. Sorry, the presentation was lacking, you may not make it to round two. Not your best effort. :)

    Battery reversed polarity during charge, what did it mess up?

    What doesnt work? Did you check all the fuses in the fuse box?

    Battery reversed polarity during charge, what did it mess up?

    The exterior may look intact, but the innards cooked. The best way to test it is with a multimeter

    1988 FJ 62 ECU control module symptoms

    Similar issues on my 62. Turned out to be the connector at the coolant temp sensor. This sensor sends a signal to the ECU....no signal no run.

    Battery reversed polarity during charge, what did it mess up?

    Search repalcing fusible links. @Coolerman can hook you up with the parts to redo them. They are designed to fail when things like reverse polarity happen. I hope they saved your harness.

    Wanted Smog pump & alternator belt tensioners

    IMO, cruiser parts would be a last resort. They d*cked me around on some fenders for a month or so, then finally admitted they didnt have them.

    Blinker on solid on one side no matter what I do....

    Could be the flasher, tap on it and see if it starts to click. I would check the ground on the front blinker as well as the socket and bulb. Turn the right blinker on and check for power at front and rear. Jiggle wires and see what you come up with. Post where you have power.

    Need to paint my new switches from "Switch Doctor"

    I will also add that you may need to swap some wires around in the plug. I had to swap a couple. Just use the old plug for a reference. I think the color were the same on both, but a couple of the wires were swapped on the new plug.

    Need to paint my new switches from "Switch Doctor"

    Holding up fine. I just hit it with very fine sandpaper and wiped/blew it off. I just used gray primer that was a close match. I am sure you could find a better match.

    Found a pic of mine taped. You can see the mini sponge I used to clean off the letters.
