    Reversing direction on a Saginaw power steering box

    Your Opinion: Top 5 Upgrades for FJ60?

    I think all of us agree that the FJ60 is an incredible vehicle. I learned to drive in our FJ60 in La Paz, Bolivia, during the 1980s when my father was aerial mapping coca drug labs for DOD. It saved my ass when I rear-ended a Bolivian Cholo Bus (like the one below) -- I hit it hard and the...

    Napa or O`Reillys part number for a Saginaw p/s pump?

    Can anyone provide a part number for a Saginaw p/s pump? If I can trust my ears I’m pretty sure I’ll need to buy a replacement in the near future…. I think I’m hearing bearing noise or something. What do I ask for at the friendly local auto parts store? Thanks, Polo

    Wanted Saginaw steering parts- frame plates, steering shaft etc.

    I am looking for a frame plate set, preferably the 4x4labs one. Also looking for the steering shaft, u-joints and pass through/bulkhead joint. I'd also take a pitman arm that can be or is already reamed for 1-ton TRE. Please PM me if you have anything.
