Just replaced my TREs on my 80 and noticed my tie rod has a slight crook in it. Is this for differential clearance or is it supposed to be straight? Better to know now so I can easily remove the TREs without a pickle fork.
Thanks in advance!
I want to add two pairs of gear tie-down rings to the cargo bay floor of the FJ60. Two of the locations are right over the boxed in floor support immediately aft of the wheel arches so no bolt thru. The other two points I can drill thru the floor and use bolts.
Question #1: Does anybody know...
In the middle of doing some work on a 100 and noticed something you guys may want to know.
I replaced a rack and pinion with a reman unit, remans come with inner tie rod ends already installed. I screwed the outer on and noticed it was lacking the range of motion the original had, as in...
Looking for some assistance!!! I am replacing both ends of my tie rod and of my drag link on my 76 - 40 Series with NAPA parts for that year. The only one not matching up, of coarse, is the tie rod end that connects to my saginaw steering pitman arm.
Can someone point me in the right...
This is a threaded 1.250" DOM tie rod with FJ40 555 Japanese tie Rod ends.
This was installed on my 76 FJ40 but never used. Everything is new besides being painted. I decided to do a Large pattern Knuckle swap with FJ80 ends.
The jam nuts and tie Rod are drilled for safety wire.
I am going to be installing a new tie rod and ends (from Marlin) tomorrow, and I haven't been able to find which way to install it in terms of which side gets the left hand thread end. Any insights?
Working on repairs to a 1963 40FST. This is my first 40 and i am not a mechanic. From what i can tell, 1963 was complicated for the 40's. I have attached a picture. From what i can tell, i have the dual sided turn signals, black face instrument cluster, aftermarket heater, no badging other...
I'm replaced tie rod ends on my '73 FJ40. In doing so I did not measure the entire length of the old one before disassemble. Now after installed the new tie rod ends I don't know the exact length.
My 40 is all factory stock suspensions and tires.
Does anyone know the length from one end...
I have an OME steering stabilizer enroute to me.
I've done some searching but I can't seem to find a recommendation for a specific tie rod puller to use for removing the old stabilizer.
Seen the OEM and the OTC brands recommended, can anyone give me a model number for one that will work?
Feeler for now since everything is still on the truck but i ordered new steering for the 40 and the old set up needs a new home. Meant for a 40 with fj60 axles and power steering box (drag link is 1.5" shorter compared to a stock 60 link, relay is stock 60 length), would include all four stock...
So I'm attempting to rebuild my knuckles for the first time. I'm trying to separate the tie rod ROM the knuckle arm by pressing up in the tie rod and knocking the knuckle free. It wasn't working. So I used a ball joint seperater. As soon as I whacked it one time, a bunch of grease came out. I'm...

But solid as a rock, and super versatile for any number of individual items like fridge, boxes, microwave (yes, I'm running one after a win with a high power inverter), or temporary things like wheelchairs ( I know all about how rattle and slide-prone wheelchairs are!).
