    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...

    Failed Emissions on 95 FZJ80: NOx

    Hi all, I've been lurking around here for a while. Back in September I picked up a 95 FZJ80 in CO Springs (150K on the OD, but a OD discrepancy on the title), and have been slowly working on it to turn it into a camper for a road trip. So far I've really only removed the interior and sound...

    Hey mudders, I took over my FJ62 with a bunch of spareparts, but I'm a noob and know nothing about Landcruisers just yet. I've been going through the FSM to find everyone of them, but haven't had luck with it all yet. Hope some of you will help me on some of these parts. I'll post pictures and...

    I just purchased my first land cruiser, an 85 fj60, three days ago. Stock everything. BUT, the PO installed an electric fuel pump (incorrectly) and my first trip with the truck was to a mechanic who fixed the install. My question is whether I have already screwed up the truck by having an...
