    The seatbelts go to the top hole if you didn't get the rollbar. The bottom bolt is a clamp bolt that holds the hardtop post in the door pillar. Nick

    Projecting, tinkering, fiddle-farting around: whatcha building?

    Projecting, tinkering, fiddle-farting around: whatcha building?

    KLF, FWIW fellow Yankee Toy alum Mike Gavin has a GX470 here in Pepperell MA. I'm sure we could all get together and have a look at it with regards to mounting a cutting board in the back.... Nick

    Best Tool for Opening Hole from 15.80mm to 15.88mm (5/8 inch) - Drill Bit or Reamer?

    It only had a .003" press fit to start with according to your measurements. Much less than that and you run the risk of spinning the bushing in the housing. The 20T press would have pushed it in easily as it was. Now I would be inclined to use a bearing mounting compound instead of assembly...

    Best Tool for Opening Hole from 15.80mm to 15.88mm (5/8 inch) - Drill Bit or Reamer?

    The new bushing is larger so it is a press fit into the distributor housing. Just press it into the hole as is. Nick

    A little help IDing these wheels?

    What skidplate said. I have had a couple sets of those through the years. I had to do minor grinding to the front caliper or use 1/4" wheel spacers to make them fit any of the Cruisers I had them on. Nick

    Joe, Did you not also have issue with the wheel cylinders not bleeding all the air out because the bleeder was not the highest point in the wheel cylinder? Seems to me you and I had that issue once with your FJ55... Nick

    Transfer output leak after double seal - what am I doing wrong?

    Looks like the drum has been machined where the seal rides. Might be too small for the seals to actually seal against at this point... Nick

    Under two post lift jack stands?

    I have 4 of the HF underlift jack stands. I had my '92 ExtraCab longbed 4x4 F250 Diesel on them (and the lift of course) for at least a month with swapping the clutch, t-case and rear axle rebuild. I did throw away the crappy bolts that came with them and bought better stuff locally. IMHO...

    I don't think I'd turn my back on that "guard dog" for a second around those cookies. He'll "keep them safe" in his belly if you do... @CHUOX17A Nice work on the cookies! Where did you get the cookie cutter? Nick

    Help identifying calipers and rotors for rear disc conversion

    You might be right Jim. This one seems a closer match particularly on thickness. The Toyota rotor might be too thick for the caliper while this Trooper rotor seems the right thickness. 1988 Isuzu Trooper rear brake rotor. BrakeBest Select Brake Rotor 96073RGS | O'Reilly Auto Parts Again...

    Font Axle Rebuild - Final Step - Axle Snap Ring Space Issue

    There are 2 different birfield lengths - the early disc brake axles got a longer birfield than the later FJ60 axles. That is why both posts above this one are correct. I think Post #12 is the right answer here for the OP. I have had to do exactly that to get the birfields pulled far enough...
