No visual inspection is allowed. Mine looks similar with a tube connecting to the air pipe from the air-cleaner assembly. No smog pump and the two hoses from that do-hickey on the fender aren't there any more either.
And my overflow bottle isn't where that one is.
I haven't looked under the hood at all. Sad. On the bright side, my 14 year old is finally becoming interested in cars, and wants to drive the wagon, so I guess he'll need to figure that out pretty soon!
Sounds like you are moving forward faster than me. Post pictures. Make a mock-up out...
Made in the USA! The Spartan Locker is a mechanical locker that installs into your stock carrier. This compact and simple design rivals much more expensive lockers. The Spartan Locker features a revolutionary spring-and-pin design that makes this drop-in locker stronger than the Lock Right...
For us, we bought a 62 because of the rear shoulder belts and the EFI. That said, I hate the automatic and will swap in a manual 4 speed this summer. I don't care about the round or square headlights. I've got some, that's the important part. :D
I don't agree, nothing wrong with the 4 speed, as long as you have 33" tall tires to use with the 4.11's of the stock FJ62. I'm planning on using the 4 speed in my FJ62 and 2F-E.
4 Speed is cheap too, that 5 speed, though very nice, is a spendy piece.
If I'm in a mood, I'll let her hit the rev limiter at 4500 rpm.
and still doesn't wake up the sleeping police :D
I suppose though, I don't mind it humming along at 3000 RPM all day long. Mine is 2-FE/A440F/4.11 gears and 31's
Is there a vacuum line diagram? Some of his are not connected, not sure where they might go to. The truck seemed to run ok when he came over on Monday (pretty clean wagon!).
I have a FJ62, so I can't mirror the vacuum line routing.
What about trailer wheels?

They are narrow and have the right BS I think. Would be good for tall skinny. I was curious about strength though (listed at 3040# at 80psi per wheel). Thoughts??
Your wagon is a fat ass! :D
I suppose you are right, but 15# here and there adds up pretty fast.
I already use cross drilled wires and hoses, sanded paint off in unseen places and removed several rubber grommets.
I might have the pics someplace..... I lost my website (long story).
And I still have not done anything with this. Though, when the 2-FE wagon is down for a 4 speed swap and rear diff rebuild, I might just have to tear into that too.
the motor brushes are probably gone. A couple years ago mine quit and I didn't have the money for a new one. I soldered in the brushes that came with my harbor freight grinder (filed them to fit) its been fine since..... I should really replace it.
