So Guys I LOVE my FJ40 but VERY frustrated with my Intermittent Startup issues - hope you can help.
A bit about my FJ40
- New Batery, Cables, Sparkplugs, Startup coil (Internal Resistor).
- Stock Carb (to my knowledge)
- Stock Distributor (to my knowledge)
- Has the Evaporative Emissions...
Does MUD really need another Sniper thread? Probably not. But, here goes anyway.
I bought this Cruiser about 6 months ago. PO had done a half-assed desmog (the air rail was removed, EGR disconnected, but the cooler was still hanging on, air pump was still there, along with a few miles of vacuum...

Had this truck for a little bit, but now we are finally getting into the rebuild of ol' Leroy.
I purchased Leroy in the fall of 2018 from Salida, CO. Found it on craigslist for a fair price and decided to take a better look at it because ya know, Colorado desert means no...
Belts are making an annoying squealing sound. I can not adjust the tension on the alternator because it is maxed out.
p/o installed Gates: TR24664 for the power steering and Gates TR22401 for the Alt. both of these are too long.
seems simple but my 3FE is also had its air pump removed...
I recently de-smogged my '84 FJ60 here in Mobile, Ala. I have a box of smog equipment. I also have the Aisin carb that I took off in favor of a Weber.
$175 for the smog stuff, plus shipping.
$200 for the carb, plus shipping.
I know there are multiple threads on desmog and vacuum line routing, but I haven't seen a diagram I make sense of yet or pictures that match what I'm seeing. Attached are pictures with the ports and hoses numbered and I was hoping to have someone help me connect the "dots".
Lots of threads out there about desmog but I can not find my specific question with a title search. I'm sure it's covered but buried in other threads.
If so please link here to help people searching :)
I've removed the smog garbage from the 1977 2F in my Parts-O-Pig project...
This is for some deeper discussion for me as I under stand how to do it. and have the desmog guide for the 3fe.
1. what I know, the 3fe is designed to run desmoged, I will get better power, smother running, and possibly better over all mileage but this is debatable and not really important.
PO removed the smog pump, but I don't know what else I can get rid of to clean up under the hood. It's a '75, and no vacuum line to the distributor, but I don't know what else most of this does that's all vacuum lined to the carb. I've tried searching and found diagrams, but I still don't know...
I was driving home the other day and heard screeching and noticed smoke... I fried a belt because i believe my Smog pump is sized. I confirmed this by getting new belts and fired it up and heard the noise again and watched as the smog pump pulley did not spin but the belt was.
From lots of...
Just finished a desmog on my 87 - 60 series and truck is running better than ever. Still has a small idle problem. It idles better now than it did. No intake leaks. I removed the Fuel Cut solenoid to inspect it and it is working but found that the o-ring is missing. Do I need the o-ring on...
This is a desmog kit I purchased from Jim C a couple years ago for my FJ60 and never used. I payed $170 and will sell for $160 shipped via priority mail and can accept paypal friends/family as payment. Please contact me via pm with any questions.
NO LONG WAIT!
Anyone interested in my emissions parts from my 2F desmog.
Air Pump with bracket
Vacuum Tubing Manifold
Air Injector Manifold with broken tube
Will post pics if there is interest.
I'm in the middle of my desmog and after many searches I decided to start a new thread.
Can I remove the driver's side bolt on the thermostat housing to remove the metal spaghetti piping without comprising the gasket/ leaking coolant fluid? I have a lot of projects going on at once, and I'd...
and not just chunks, but small stones: Hard, abrasive, iron oxide rocks.
I thought I'd share something new I just learned about the lowly EGR cooler.
The cast iron EGR coolers can internally rust to the point that they'll eventually cough out disturbingly sized chunks of rust "stones" that...
Hello everyone, here is my story and my 40's story. I saw my first FJ40 in 2012, and absolutely fell in LOVE with it. I know, I know where had I been, living under a rock some where??
Well needless to say after a relentless search I found my baby. An unmolested well slightly molested 1979...
My 1992 fj80 started idling very rough whenever in gear, to the point where I thought it was constantly going to stall when stopped at the stoplight. Figured I had a vacuum leak, and sure enough the pipe near the check valve of the air manifold was rusted and snapped in two. I pulled air pump...
See pictures below and let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to PM me or post here in this thread. I tried to price things appropriately but let me know if I'm way off on anything. With the exception of the Evap Emission Control Device (FJ55), these all came off an early 80's FJ60...
