    1976 2F carb question

    So I have a 76 where the carb has the return fuel line. I have now desmogged the truck and the carb needs rebuilt. I have one of the good CityRacer carbs I can put on the truck. I/we assume that the return line can just be plugged? CityRacer carb only has the fuel line in. I know, Sniper, but...

    Carb not getting gas!!

    Hey everyone! We have a 1985 FJ60, not in great condition but when it starts it runs very well. Every time we turn it off, it has a very hard time starting if it starts at all. It seems as if the carb is not getting gas (or enough gas) in order for the engine to fire. We recently replaced the...

    More Starting Issues on the 62 Series

    Hey guys, So I've replaced the starter last week - big difference having a starter that fully engages the flywheel, a pleasure to start. But since then - have had a few new issues come up - coincidence or causality I'm not sure! 1. The key doesnt engage the starter half the time - but the...

    I need a new carburetor for my rebuilt F engine.

    Hi folks! I recently finished a full rebuild of my original 5/73 F engine. It was running very badly, and leaking so much oil that I was paying as much (or more) for oil than I was gas. Not fun. Long story short, it doesn't feel like it has any more power than it did before. I believe that my...

    Repair of '79 - '80 carb cooler fan controller circuit board

    My '79 40 didn't have the blower for the carb when I got it about 6 years ago. Until recently I was ignoring my hard-starts after the engine was warm and then sat for a while. I started reading the LONG threads about guys on MUD getting their carb coolers working and having much success with...

    Carb issue after reinstalling (California type)

    *edit* I forgot to mention that this is a 1985 FJ60 I just recently cleaned out my carb thanks to the wonderful videos by Pinhead on YouTube. My truck was not passing smog, and after a mechanic refused to work on my carb until I took care of any potential vacuum issues, I am low on funds for...

    I have a new to me 88 with a vortec in it. Previously this truck had a 5.7 tbi set up. It was CARB approved with a sticker on the firewall. Per the seller this new set up was updated with CARB and approved and smogged. However the firewall sticker still refers to the old engine set up. Has...

    FJ40 Carb/Accelerator Linkage

    I'm not sure I have my linkage connected correctly or I have a wrong part or two. It seems like the linkage to gas pedal rod is on a pretty good angle as well as the linkage to carb rod. It seems like the ball on the gas pedal would be better aligned if it were on the other side. It's a 5/1977...
