    For Sale 1974 FJ40 Engine with accessories / locked up TX

    The stock engine in my 74 FJ40 locked up a year ago. I have since replaced it with another engine and this one needs to go. Its locked up. No idea why. Was running perfectly, then locked up. Spun bearing maybe? Under the valve cover looks great. Never investigated further. Parts replaced 3...

    Thanks for the info. I’ll take a look at it and compare. I fixed the rear end and took it for another test drive. No more leaks. Fuel pump still dumb loud. Lol. Man thing is a blast. Built a screamer pipe for the wastegate. Gave it a little peekaboo out the fender.

    Do you have a part number for it? Is it an in-tank pump or external? The only reason i went with this one is beacuse i had it on the shelf. Even with it inside the tank is crazy loud at idle. I dont hear it as much when im driving it, but it defintely needs attention.

    Had a friend come over saturday to learn me some Tig welding. I spent an hour or so watching him and preacticing on scrap aluminim intercooler piping. I was starting to get the hang of it, but didnt want to chance it, so i had him do it for me. Man did it come out amazing. My fit up was perfect...

    Who likes hub caps who doesn’t

    I Since you have the hubcap wheels, then i vote run the hubcaps. Looks like something is missing without them.

    Knocked a couple more items off the list last night since the Astros game got postponed in Philly due to a little drizzle. First was the rear exhaust hanger and then i tacked together a front driveshaft. I used a rear shaft from some toyota i had and grafted the slip portion from 40 on the end...

    Went wheeling over the weekend but made it back early enough yesterday to put in a couple hours on Lucille. Mocked up the intercooler piping. My friend is going to swing by and show me how to weld aluminum. Ive never tig welded so i figured this would be a good way to learn. I used an el...

    Good news. New to me ECU fixed the issues my old one had. I can now connect to the OBD2 and read the codes, which there wasnt any. Time to finish the intercooler piping and give her all the boots.

    Spent a couple hours more in the shop last night and knocked out the electric fan shroud for the radiator. It mounts to the core support in a few places on each side. I used the stop sign from the busy intersection by my house for the shroud. (kidding). It came out pretty good. Fan comes on with...

    My new fuel sending unit came in from RCI. Its a universal one for one of their fuel cells. Its close in size and mounting pattern, but not excact. I had to re-drill the mounting pattern and get creative with the bending of the arm. Now i have a 0-90ohm sending unit that will work with my new...

    Welp, Peesalot was correct. I tried to make the offset rear work with my super short driveshaft, but it would have taken an uncomfortable amount of grinding on the yokes to make it work. So out with the old and in with the new(er) rear axle. I had this trail gear rock assault axle on the floor...

    Thanks for the info. I have all kinds of toyota shafts at my disposal from over the years to try and make one that works. I have access to a lathe to balance it. The entire rig vibrates at 60 anyways so whats one more. lol

    My plan is to run it offset and see what happens. If it doesnt work out, I have a mini truck rear end that i can use or may build a centered FJ80 full float rear later on. Hopefully it will be fine up to 55-60 mph.

    Built the rest of the exhaust and added a dynamax muffler. Its super quiet know which puts Lucille into sleeper mode. I love it. Its full 3" from turbo all the way out. It needs a rear hanger to be 100% complete. Next up intercooler piping. *Ignore the amazing condition of the tub. She bad.

    ITS ALIVE!!!!1 https://photos.app.goo.gl/LzxCAjoVGijtutNB8 Fit half the exhaust, installed some 02 sensors and it fired right up. Great news considering i have no history on this engine. I do have an issue with the ecu connecting to OBD2. I can see the check engine blinking and my AFR gauge...

    Worked on the exhaust yesterday. Full 3" that crosses over the transmission and out the drivers side. Exhaust fully welded out with Wideband and front O2 sensor bungs welded in. The turndown is temporary as i am deciding on what muffler to run. Old Alex would have had the exhaust dump...

    Of course i had to get the manifold installed yesterday. She went on beautifully with zero modifications. Then i bolted on the holset turbo i had rebuilt by Majestic Turbo in Waco. John did an amazing job as it was filthy and loose when i sent it to him. I used a smaller hotside than what...
