    Points questions

    Hmm, can't seem to edit. It looks like "A" goes in the small slot at the top of " B". It was stretched out to the point that I thought if fit on the bottom, fatter part of "B". So I think I have that figured out! Actually I think I figured it out (feel dumb now) except the "?" part. Also, I...

    Points questions

    Oh, and part "C" seems to be a screw to adjust the point gap. That is just a little piece that is just sitting between the points and the breaker plate. Seems like that would be REAL easy to knock loose changing points, and I don't recall that. Want to make sure I'm not missing something to...

    Points questions

    Forgive me :-( My 'Cruiser hasn't run since 1999. Just now starting to really work on reassembly following a frame off. Took the points out just a few weeks ago to put new ones in, and I can't recall where the clip "A" went??? I don't recall ever removing it for a tune up (was my daily...

    Wanted 1979+ FJ40 Carburator Insulator/Spacer

    Sweet. Will that fit for sure on 1979? I know they list 1975-1987, but on SOR they show different spacers for diff years and that one looks like the 69 to 74 one. I'd assume they would all fit, as all I need is an actual spacer, I don't need all the stuff that big plate looking thing would do...

    Wanted 1979+ FJ40 Carburator Insulator/Spacer

    I think I need part 2 in this SOR picture I had a Weber carb, and bought a rebuilt Asin (non USA, 1979-87). My intake manifold is from a 79 FJ40. Does anyone make just a spacer without the big black part? Anyone have the spacer/insulator? Also, does a gasket go between the spacer and...

    Cruiser Solution's Frame Components

    I bought a rear crossmember, gussets, and leaf spring gussets. Was very happy with the product. This was 8-9 years ago, but I would buy from them again.

    New Tie Rods: OEM or aftermarket

    Need new tie rod/relay rod (old ones bent, one I cut in half during the removal. I'm sure I had a good reason, but it was years ago I took them off...). Restoration been on hold for several years, so I'm a little "out of the loop". What is best for tie rods? OEM, or are there any aftermarket...

    POR-15 Metal ready leaves dusty residue

    I know if phosphates the metal, and leaves a phosphate coating to help protect. Everytime I use it it leaves a brown dust on the metal no matter how much I rinse it off (if I rub my finger on the metal I'll get brown dust on my finger). I use compressed air to blow it off and/or tack rags but...

    Homemade sandblaster

    If you are going to be lying on your back and blasting, you will have a lot of dust to deal with. Get a good respirator and eye protection. If you can get or rent a fresh air system like for painting, that would probably help.

    I'm a Noob and I want to Prep and Paint my FJ40.. Have Questions!!

    An excellent resource I found are the videos at Kevin Tetz's Paintucation OFFICIAL SITE I have all his DVD's and they are VERY helpful. They also have a discussion board. The main video on how to paint your own car has a lot of really good information. If you have a compressor, you can get...

    Undercoating: Epoxy Primer or POR-15?

    FOr clean metal, and body work, I would use epoxy primer. I use POR on old things that I've de-rusted (axles, drive shafts etc). The prep is really a pain in the a$$, and if you don't prep it won't adhere. It is also a pain to top coat. Curious about the above post saying can topcoat within...

    FJ40 Hood Holes

    There are a lot of good vendors. I've been a big fan since I've had my 'Cruiser of Spector Off Road (Specter Off-Road, Inc. Land Cruiser Parts and Accessories). You can get parts cheaper, but they have everything from OEM Toyota to aftermarket. The biggest thing I like is that they have...

    Laid new paint. Should I clear coat or something now?

    1.) Fixing clear coat is harder (have to reclear the entire panel) 2.) Too late to clear unless you sand/scuff the whole thing. 3.) If you do get a scratch all you have to do is hit it again with your Rustoleum. I'd leave it. Looks good.

    How to remove rust best??

    If you have the body off, you should be able to use a wire wheel. If you can have someone with a large media blaster do it, that would be the easiest..... I think I mis-read your first post, I thought you were doing a body off (by "remove, treat and paint a frame" I thought you meant remove the...

    Taurus Fan Ques.

    As pig said, it is the length. The stock waterpump pulley would be in the middle of your fan. So I *THINK* the answer to the OP is that it can't be done with a 2F so ignore all the wiring recommendations.......

    Like water into wine (cad plating magic)

    73tlc, yours looks great. Any secrets to the zinc coating? I have the Cadwell system and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to polish/shine the zinc? It always seems to come out dull from the zinc and the copy cad winds up looking pretty dull.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    I put my clutch and tranny back on my frame off resto. I hadn't touched my Cruiser in about 6 months so it felt REAL good :-)

    Taurus Fan Ques.

    I was under the impression that the Taurus fan wouldn't fit with the 2F motor and this was only for V8 conversions (?) Per the OP's original question: anyone have them in a 2F? Pics? I'd like an electric to be able to shut it off for water crossings.....

    FJ40 Frame Repair?

    Been a while since I fixed my frame, and I think all these parts are more for the rear hanger, but Cruiser Solutions makes parts to replace the whole back of the frame (all my rusted parts were replaceable): about 1/2 way down the page are the frame parts. New Parts : Cruiser Solutions...
