    Consensus on 6BT in FJ80 without AWD

    Well...it looks like I might be getting back in the 80 series diesel group. After completing the 4bd1t swap in my 94 I decided to venture to the darkside with a 100 series. Once again I find myself wanting to lose sparkplugs and go diesel and just picked up a triple locked truck with a blown...

    Cummins 6BT Powered FJ60

    I was at Classic Cruisers in Salida yesterday. Micah was putting the finishing touches on an FJ60 6BT Cummins conversion. I got to ride along during a short road test. All I can say is WOW. Acceleration G-forces pinning me into the seat is something new in a Cruiser. Micah just got back...

    So I am pretty new here and am thinking about doing a 6bt swap on my 80

    I have a 93 FZJ80 and I want to drop a 6bt in it. I live in WA and I do not have any room to do it myself. Before calling around and embarrassing myself what can I expect to pay for something like this? I can maybe find a garage at a friends if the price of labor is too high, but I would rather...

    6bt 80

    So I'm sitting here looking at the leaking transmission on my excursion that I use to tow my 80 to the trails. It got me thinking about building a 6bt 80 as a tow rig. I was curious if the frame and drivetrain will hold up to towing 10k pounds. I would swap the engine and trans and everything...

    Which pressure sender for 6BT in FJ80?

    So I haven't had an oil pressure gauge in my cruiser for ever, a couple years ago I tried the stock sender and one for the 6BT, if I recall the cummins sender put the needle full stroke, I turned it off quick, the 80 series wouldn't hardly budge it (checked with the 6BT after to make sure I...
