    Can anyone help me understand shackles and ride height?

    I am fairly new to the scene, but have been learning over the past 6 months now on owning an FJ40 and dealing with some of the common problems seen on these beasties. One thing I look for more information on is shackles...and how they relate to ride height. So some questions I have: 1) What...

    Anyone know how to get a response from ACC?

    I understand....the pandemic has caused HUGE issues with distribution, parts availability, labor and just volume of service work needed for used cars - especially classics like a 40, 60, 80 etc. But I have tried calling, emailing, smoke signals, pigeons and using their client intake form and...

    Found my oil leak - or did I? (ultraviolet dye pics in thread)

    So, over the past few months, I decided to get down to business and identify this small oil leak under my FJ. It was not huge, but if she sits for say 5 days or so, a small puddle is presented to the garage floor. Oddly enough, when running her around town with the engine nice and hot, she...

    Rear door leak in downpour (new gaskets and restored FJ40)

    Over the weekend I had a chance to get the old FJ out in a pretty bad rain storm and did really well with no issues at all inside the cabin. When I pulled her in the garage, I noticed there was water droplets all over the inside window on the right rear ambulance door as well as a small puddle...

    Looking for Toyota Mini Truck Steering Box Adjustment

    For the life of me, I cannot find the FSM or any instructions on how to adjust the power steering version of the Mini Truck steering box. I have seen plenty of info and have the FSM on the non power steering version, but I am assuming the adjustment is not the same (due to manual vs power...

    Pros and Cons of Desmogging all original FJ40

    Been thinking (just thinking at this point) about possibly desmogging my 1981 factory original FJ for the sole purpose of it running better and maybe (dare I say) a bit stronger. I keep going back to the idea that I have a perfectly good and running FJ with all factory CA smog...and I do not...

    Simple Pitman Arm Question

    Looks like my toyota box needs a full rebuild and will be sending to the wizards at West Texas O/R. I understand I can do a removal in two basic ways.....pull the pitman arm off the sector shaft or disconnect the cotter pin from the lower rod. And then remove the rag joint. Question is - does...

    What is this stuff leaking from my Power Steering Box?

    I have a mini-truck PS/Box conversion on my '81. Do not know what year this mini-truck box is from (possibly '79-80), but it is a conversion kit from JTO. Box was refurbished as well as a OEM Toyota Pump (did not use the pump provided in their kit). The fluid I am seeing is at the main worm...

    Stumped with headlamp adjusters (reinstalling)

    I must be missing something SUPER easy here....but took my headlamp units out to paint the buckets with rustolium and when trying to put back into place, the springs are no longer creating any tension....leaving the bucket loose. This is for a 81-83 FJ that was the single spring as shown...

    Mystery vac hose to nowhere…anyone know?

    While looking to do a power steering fixed this morning I noticed this vacuum hose is disconnected (driver side near fender) from somewhere and I simply cannot find where it would go. I assume it’s part of the smog system and may go to the carburetor or something similar. Does anybody know...

    Discount Tire - why is it so difficult?

    This may have come up before, but has anyone else encountered the fact that when ordering online - 1) discount tire does not recognize (for example) a '1979' or '1981' Toyota Land Cruiser and 2) will not allow you to buy tires unless it matches the OEM size/type spec within their system? I...
