    FJ40 12HT Swap & 60 Series Axles

    The cylinders were in excellent condition and everything was within spec (a touch closer to tolerance than I'd like but it should be fine). Im still planning on doing a hone and new factory size rings/bore. If the machine shop finds something I didn't find, Ill address it.

    The turbo impeller was chewed but besides that it looks great.

    Just got my Toyota CT26 turbo back from the shop. It’s been fully rebuilt but still has the original blow-off valve. New impeller, bearings, shaft, oil fittings etc. pics to follow.

    With the power steering done, the next project is the custom rear fuel tank! Stay tuned for that one. If people are interested, I might start selling the plasma cut plates as a "weld it yourself" aux fuel tank kit!

    FJ40 12HT Swap & 60 Series Axles

    Hey guys, just a question today. Im building an aux fuel tank for the back of the 40. I wasnt planning on doing an in-tank fuel pump, and just using the factory 12HT pump. My plan is to have an electric valve that switches between the front and rear tank. Do you guys think I need an in-tank...

    FJ40 12HT Swap & 60 Series Axles

    Some shots of the engine teardown. Everything looked really great. It was very reassuring to see the inside of the motor so clean. The plan is to just do a quick cylinder hone, boil the block, check the head and if needed give it a deck and valve job. Finally just install all new bearings...

    Front axle painted and ready for ARB lockers. Tomorrow I will begin the final teardown of the 12HT and prep the engine for new bearings, a cylinder hone, and blast/clean of the aluminum components.

    Yes. I have an HJ61 and I swapped a 12HT into my 60. I've rebuilt a 12HT for the landcruiser shop I worked at also. The link to my FJ60 12HT swap is in my signature.
