    We were just talking about them. The 33s don’t fit on the enclosed trailer. Just for proof:

    Builds Removing SBC conversion, going back to Toyota. 1972 Frame Off

    Had a good morning on the ‘72. Got some more wiring cleaned up, cleaned up and installed the A-pillar tag and hung the fenders. I needed to have the fenders installed to finalize some of the wiring placement.

    Fuel lines and regulator are complete and leak free (knock on wood). I have been cleaning up the engine compartment and wiring. Also, decided to get the AC wrapped up before installing the fenders.

    3fe efi onto a 2f

    There seems to be a lot of wiring issues to dumb down the 3fe. Now that I’ve done it, a Sniper install would be done and running in a short weekend.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    We have been comparing notes as our installs have been running parallel. I tried the LS regulator but mine had a small leak at the output side. Here’s the engine side of mine. Working towards cleaning up the wiring and buttoning up the years long build.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    Finished plumbing the fuel lines for the Sniper install. I didn’t want to have a return line in the engine compartment so opted to cap the regulator on the Sniper and use an adjustable regulator on the frame rail.

    What have you done to your Land Cruiser this week?

    It looks like the 68 that was for sale a few years back. Did you get all of the awesome paperwork that he had with it?

    Replacement rockers

    A quick trip to your local fab shop or supplier is quicker than fedex or ups.... I like to bring Donuts.

    Replacement rockers

    Without the seal, they are just some 16ga with some 90* bends. Easy to DIY.

    72 FJ40 with 2F & 4 spd crossmember fit issue

    Depending on your skill set you can make the torque tube removable or move it completely. Mine is like that but Ill remove the mounting bolts from the bellhousing and lower the rear of the engine while someone watches the head at the firewall and fan at the radiator.

    Hey Diana, there are a handful around NE OH. I know of 2 other builds happening now as well, hopefully they’ll be done and on the road soon. We are planning on installing the front clip next week on our build. It’s not at my house right now so seeing it is a little tough. It should be ready...

    Builds Removing SBC conversion, going back to Toyota. 1972 Frame Off

    After installing the LS Corvette style filter/regulator in the fuel system, I was unhappy with the push on/in connectors. Anytime that the line was bumped, there would be a small leak at the regulator output. I am switching to an adjustable Holley regulator and separate filter. Tomorrow’s work...

    Thanks, I hope we are finished by spring as well. There are a handful of 40s around. NEO cars and coffee is a good time. There are a lot of great cars to see.

    How do I get the front WARN locking hub off to access the brake cylinders ?

    Is this drum brake axle? It looked like it was a disc setup(from my phone). If it’s drums, the drum will slide off over the lockout.

    How do I get the front WARN locking hub off to access the brake cylinders ?

    Grab a Haynes Manual or FSM and do some research. It’s not necessarily a hard job but there are steps that need to be taken. There are a handful of videos about knuckle rebuilds on YouTube that show it apart. The brake rotor(not cylinder) is attached to the spindle via the lug studs. The...

    CCOT rims

    Find another place, you can get them new from a dealer(coating isn’t that great) for about $95 per rim.
