    Builds An Accidental Frame Off..................

    On 'Yield', a 1998 Pearl Jam album, "MFC" takes place in a car and is about "getting the f*** out of a problem". Coincidence?

    Oh, yes... You need look no further than the trusted vendors on this site but there are more mfg's besides those.

    2F Rebuild: Next Steps?

    Maybe if you were very gentle and rigged something that didn't damage the cam it would still need to be reground and re-hardened. I would just buy a new camshaft of your choosing and obviously new lifters. The bores may need to be lightly honed to clean them up. I would try to save the pushrods...

    2F Rebuild: Next Steps?

    Keeping in mind that your camshaft will be replaced, after a few days of soaking the bores with Kroil see if you can rock the cam back and forth with a pipe wrench or other leverage multiplying device. You only have to move the lifters a little to get the cam out. Once it is out you will have...

    A sharp carbide scribe should be able to make marks you can see on the top area.

    F145 pistons

    I would start with one of the trusted vendors on this site. Will you be measuring the cylinders to see if you need to rebore?

    2F Rebuild: Next Steps?

    I'm sure Phoenix/Tempe has ample options for engine machine shop services. If you were in L.A, I would be glad to recommend, having rebuilt my '68 F recently. All the parts you will be needing are available, try to stay as organized as possible and be realistic about your own abilities. These...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    This is a little late but you have used your strongest material in the area requiring the least strength, i.e, the very bottom. The beefy and no doubt expensive heavy wall tubing would make excellent struts angled from closer to the top of the column to the ground, where they could then be tied...

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Half a tank of ga$ cheaper ($45). I'll stick with the Odysseys. Known, proven brand - sort of like the subjects of this forum! However, for those who would like to save that $45 every decade, the X2 batteries do seem to be quite similar in design. ;)

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I'm a fan of the Odyssey batteries. They hold up with minimal maintenance charging needed. I'll put one in my 40 when it needs a new battery.

    Builds An Accidental Frame Off..................

    I only know what I have read about Orvis' politics in the last half hour but I would tend to give them a pass. They seem like decent folks. I respect the company's longevity and success and appreciate their conservation efforts but I doubt anyone looks to Orvis for guidance in race relations.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I have one of these: http://readywelder.com/ They are very good quality and will weld as easily as your standard MIG. Two 12v batteries in series will tackle anything on your rig. ;)

    Red if it's an big old TIG, Blue if it's a 220V MIG and I like a Gray (Hobart) 120V MIG.
