    Ignition problem when hot

    Yeah, I thought the same thing and checked that. Doesn't seem to be the problem...connections looked good. As another test, I ran a jumper wire from positive side of battery directly to the coil. That eliminates any switch issues...still will not start.

    Ignition problem when hot

    I think very weak to almost no spark when coil was swapped. It's an F engine with brand new distributor and internals. Carb is also freshly rebuilt by the expert, Jim. C, so fuel couldn't be the issue. Fuel in the sight glass is half full. It's also got a new head gasket, good compression, and...

    Ignition problem when hot

    Started up my '73 FJ over the weekend and drove 5 minutes away to a gas station. Seemed to crank more than usual to start after filling up. Drove another 5 minutes and shut it off. Then I started it again which required even more cranking. Then drove it about 30 minutes, it rain fine. Got to my...

    Carb vaccuum port

    Anyone know if this vacuum line routing looks correct? The yellow arrow points to the vac line that's going to distributor. If that's supposed to go to the carb base plate, then something is wrong.

    Bracket plate pics

    Anyone have any homemade PS pump bracket pics? What plate thickness have others used? I'm planning on making a mount for a minutruck pump and bolt to my F engine in the original alternator location.

    Need PS pump bracket source

    I've decided to fab my own bracket since I can't find one that utilizes a Toyota pump on an F engine. Anyone have any pics or measurements of brackets they've made? What thickness of plate is recommended?

    Need PS pump bracket source

    Is the only way to order parts from Mark's Off Road to get him on the phone? And, looks like he has specific hours for answering calls?

    Need PS pump bracket source

    That gray bracket looks like the one I need if it slides under the drivers side motor mount and the hole spacing is something like 4" center to center. Now, what's the contact info for Mark? Is it Mark's Off Road?

    Need PS pump bracket source

    Does that smog pump bracket bolt into the horizontal tab under the motor mount on my F block? (See red arrows in pic)

    Need PS pump bracket source

    Yeah, I thought about doing that, but wanted to see what's available first. I think someone used to make a bracket that slid under the motor mount and bolted to the tabs on the engine block. I've been coming through the forum but can't find a vendor.

    Need PS pump bracket source

    I'm installing PS on my '73 40 and looking for a vendor source for a PS pump bracket. I've already relocated the alternator to passenger side and plan to use a Toyota pump (from an 80s Tercel wagon.) I've got an F motor and would like to retain the stock air cleaner. Anyone know who might still...

    Need Distributor source for F engine

    Actually, I have the original distributor that could possibly be rebuilt. I can time my motor at idle with a timing light, but after you rev the engine and return to idle, the timing starts dancing around a bit. Wondering if it's worth a rebuild or go with a new unit? I hear differing opinions...
