I'm slowly rebuilding the 2F in my 78 Fj40
On the back of the block what do I need to cover the end of the cam?
Thanks

IIRC, there is a special Cam Plug that goes in that hole. Sorta like a freeze plug but different.

Thanks John,
Called my local friendly Toyota dealer, LOL, my special price was $4.84, plus 15 to 20 working days for delivery.
And they question why local buyers go online to buy parts.

I appreciate your help.

You do business with the wrong dealer. Maybe your dealer is buying it from Toyota of Cool Springs for $2.26 and selling it to you. :rofl:

This is what they're paying outside of Nashville, in Franklin, TN:

Hi Guys, I'm new to FJ60 ownership and IH8MUD. My 60 has several leaks throughout the engine, but is pretty low miles (144K or so). I am wondering if anyone could share their thoughts on whether I should have the entire engine rebuilt or just address the leaky gaskets/seals etc. It seems the labor is just about the same as far as tearing the engine apart to access oil pan gaskets and crankshaft seals. Should I just go ahead and have the engine block and head machined while the engine is out? I will not be doing the work myself so I don't want to pay for a similar service twice.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.

you should start your own thread on this,
there is no need to remove/pull the engine to fix the leaks, main areas are:
oil pan
side cover
valve cover

I would check compression and maybe a leak down test to give you insight into the health of the engine, if decent there is no need to rebuild the engine.
