    Clusters, Gauges, Speedo & Odo meters

    No sealant. It's connecting well with the block, the resistance between the block and base of the sensor is almost 0.

    Clusters, Gauges, Speedo & Odo meters

    Thanks, yes the sensors changed. I put an early sensor onto my 73 motor so it matches the gauge in my cluster.

    Clusters, Gauges, Speedo & Odo meters

    Thanks for that post, it is interesting the resistance doesn't change from 102F to 180F. If the resistance isn't an accurate way, what is? What is the gauge reading?

    Clusters, Gauges, Speedo & Odo meters

    I have a 71 FJ40 with a 2nd generation cluster and a F1.5 engine from a 73 that I've been rebuilding. It has an early style Temp Sending Unit that should match my cluster. When off, the needle sits past H as it should. When on and the engine warmed it, it doesn't move to an appropriate spot...

    8274 Wiring Issue - Solenoid rapid clicking

    I picked up a Warn 8274 on a craigslist and the owner told me one of the original solenoids was dead. I decided to upgrade it to the newer-style Albright contactor type solenoid. I picked up a generic one on Amazon and have been unable to get it working successfully. I have a rapid clicking in...

    Wanted FJ40 Rocker Shaft 74 - 80

    Hello I'm looking for a one-piece rocker shaft for a 74 FJ40. F1.5 engine, looking at part numbers it appears the early 2F is the same shaft.

    1973 F Oil Delivery to Head - No Rocker Arm Tube?

    So the rocker shaft from the 69 can't be used in the f1.5 assembly? Should I have the one-piece shaft?

    1973 F Oil Delivery to Head - No Rocker Arm Tube?

    Well how about that? Yes, oil filter is next to distributor. I looked up the engine code on the block, 524369, sometime after 9/73. Vin plate in doorjamb says March 73, I thought it was all original.

    1973 F Oil Delivery to Head - No Rocker Arm Tube?

    Hello I'm doing a rebuild on my stock March 1973 F Engine. I'm having the head done at a machinist who called recently and asked if I had another rocker assembly as mine was a bit worn. Luckily I have a parts engine from a 1969. I pulled off that assembly and had to undue the oil tube that...

    Rocker Assembly Rusty and Filthy

    Thanks Doug. Good to hear it can be cleaned up with a wire brush. I'll pull everything apart today. The engine has good compression and the coolant level wasn't noticeably low when I disassembled things. It did sit for a long time (several months to a couple years?) with the hose from the...

    Rocker Assembly Rusty and Filthy

    I recently pulled the motor out of my stock 73 FJ40 that had been sitting in the desert for years. I have 20 miles on it in 6 years of ownership. I did a compression test, numbers were good, so I decided on a light overhaul; replace the outer main seals, gaskets, water pump, put a 2f Valve...

    F Engine - Preventative Maintenance while pulled

    I'm pulling the stock F engine from my 73 FJ40 and getting ready to put it in my 72. The PO had it sitting for years and I haven't driven it more than 10 miles in the 6 years I've owned it. The engine seems to be fine and compression is good. It leaks a lot of oil and I plan to replace the...

    Make an introduction

    Hello My wife and I recently moved to the Denver area, specifically in Centennial. I'm currently on my 3rd FJ40, although it's been sitting for close to 6 years and was in rough shape when I got it. Now that I have a garage again and my work is shutdown because of the virus, I'm looking to...
