    Is this what is meant by a grooved Park Brake?

    I can only assume that everyone will come back with a resounding 'Yes'! That said, does anyone have a decent used park brake hub that will fit my '64 fj40 that we can work a deal on? BTW - the second picture shows the SST I made in order to get the hub off. It was stuck on there pretty good.

    Rear parking brake

    My 97 had the parking brakes gutted. Does anyone know where I can get instructions for a rebuild? I hear most people rip them out and just go without because of the poor design and when the corrode they basically implode. What are your suggestions?

    Emergency / Parking Brake Light Switch

    All: I have a much-loved 1975 FJ40. A couple of years ago, I replaced the parking/emergency brake light switch. It seems to be acting up, so I'd like to get a new one. However, the only things I can find are used ones on either or an e-bay site. Anyone know of any workarounds or...
