    Distributor problems

    Having issues getting my 1985 FJ60 to start. I had problems in 2019 with spongy breaks so I replaced the brake booster in Sept that year with great results. I was driving it weekly and then one day in Oct 2019 it just wouldn't start. I wasn't getting a spark and due to work and other...

    74 FJ40 Rough Running

    I have a 74 FJ40 that wont run and if I can get it to run it idles really rough and wont let me accelerate to higher rpms without dying or backfiring. It is acting like it jumped time but is that even possible with timing gears? I can turn the crank a significant amount before the rotor in the...

    Newbie hit a roadblock- Running rough

    I bought my 1994 FZJ80 about two months ago. Previous owner thought he threw a bearing therefore needed a motor swap. He provided a 'running' replacement 1fz-fe in the price. I knowingly bought it as a project and a learning opportunity. I haven't run into any roadblocks swapping the motors in...

    Distributor and Vacuum

    Hey All, I am trying to get my FJ60 air tight (Proven to be a headache and a half) and think I have finally done it. I hooked up my smoke tester and all seals seem to be doing their jobs. But, when I crank over the engine and get it up to temp, I am only seeing 14 inHG on the intake manifold...

    Dial indicator suggestion for genuine Toyota 1hz 1hdt IP timing tool ?

    Managed to pick up a new genuine Toyota tool for setting injector pump timing on 1hz and 1hdt motors. Is there a specific type of dial indicator required to go with it or just any one that has the right thread and scaling? Thanks, craig.

    Failed Smog due to Timing Being Off

    I recently picked up my first 80 and for once in my life, did so without having the previous owner smog it. It's a single owner, 94, with 80k miles and had passed smog every 2 years as expected. I took it in and it passed with flying colors except for the timing. For some reason, when we...

    2H Timing Diesel Tech in SoCal

    So, my injector pump was apparently in need of a rebuild so instead sourced an allegedly working pump from Canada. My mechanic (not a diesel expert) said he could put it in and he did. It is smoking a ton and is not running well. He claims the pump is bad but I have reason to believe that it...

    Timing for stock 2F on modern fuel?

    I recently replaced a leaking VCV near the distributor on my 1980 FJ40. The leak went away and the idle quality is better but the engine is running a little like the timing is off. I wonder what the suggested ignition timing is for a stock 2F running on modern 87 grade (10% ethanol) fuel and...
