    '70 FJ40, Crank no start + Mystery light?

    With 12V jumpered directly to the + side of the coil, do you have spark while cranking? Also, the plugs may be fouled from cranking it for a while with the bad ignition switch.

    Possibke seized engine

    You may be able to salvage the engine if you are in a bind.

    what color soft top with fashion green?

    I hope these pictures help. This is woodland camo with Fashion Green (the only OD green I could find handy). The tan-ish color is actually OD green. Personally, I think OD green would look really good on a Fashion Green rig.

    Fuel Line Pressure Questions

    Just listen. You will notice it smooth out and increase speed. Also, I meant to say cover with your hand or close the choke.
