If you have an original 2F in your 40 or 55, please post up your engine serial number, and the month/year of your truck build and the vin if you would. I am trying to complie 2F year data.



I will be posting this up in the 60 section as well.



Thank you for your help! :beer:

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this post and the spreadsheet, so I figured it was time.

Feb 78 FJ 40
Engine- 2F 234488
Frame/Vehicle #- 268379

Are you sure this is the original engine? Based on the other data in the spreadsheet it would appear that that engine is from the middle of January 78, which I guess is possible for your build date but somewhat odd. Where are you located? That may help explain.

I really love you this forum, educating and teaching everyone because obviously I have a lot to learn. Attached is the picture again thank you the numbers are 2 f space 234 694

This would appear to be a January of 1978 2F.

Jan 1981
Fj40 429258
Hope this helps

That is good data for the VIN number, but does not include the 2F engine serial number.

Dec 1976
fj40 238554
2f 135899

It is interesting that your VIN is only 401 units from aaronedaniel’s. But your engine is 1,311 units from his. Likewise your VIN is only 647 units from HappyGilmore, but your engine is 2,434 units from his. Solid Dec. 1976 though.

40 series
May 1979
2f-368291
Frame-305827

Thank you, yours is right in line for a May of 1979.

FJ40
build date - Nov. 77
engine# 2F 217901
frame# 262293

pretty sure my truck was originally from California

saw this on the spreadsheet where other Mudders data is listed
1phrogguy - Futenma - Nov-77 - 217903 - 262599 FJ40

engines two numbers apart, frame 306 numbers apart, one sold in the US, the other in Futenma, Japan where there's a US Military base ... obviously frames weren't used in order ...

useful data ...

Yep, pretty interesting.

Apr/77 fj40
2f 169223
It's in Louisiana

Thanks, right in line for a 4/77

40 01/78
VIN FJ40268219
Engine 2F 238306

Thanks, right in line for a 1/78

FJ40
Build oct 76
vin 235201
engine 124778

Your VIN is only 35 units away from NE78FJ40, kinda cool. Your engine is 122 units away though.

not sure year but guessing 1976. it has emissions and a 4spd. VIN tag on the door is pretty beat up and almost unreadable

engine serial

2F128617

Yours is probably a Nov-Dec 1976, which would be a 1977 model year.

Vin # FJ40 - 235281
Built - 10/76
engine # 2F 125007

Your VIN is only 45 units from NE78FJ40, but your engine is 107 units away.

1983 FJ40
Built - April 1983
VIN# JT3FJ40C0D3363352
Engine # 2F 722148

Thanks, this looks to line up fine with a 4/83 build date

FJ40
Build Date 1/76
Engine #041475
VIN FJ40~215936

Oregon City, Oregon

Your engine lines up with an 8/75 build date. Your VIN lines up with a 1/76 build date. It would be interesting if you could check the casting date on your block to verify (see post #3). Your engine is sequential to MD11Fr8Dog’s in North Carolina. Congratulations!

Manufacture Date :: April 1978
V.I.N. / Frame Number :: FJ40~275149
Engine Number :: 2F 260025

Thanks, yours appears to line up with a 4/78 build date

i have a 1978 fj 40
motor num 2f239398
serial num fj400268568

Thanks, yours appears to be a January or February of 78 build date.

FJ40
August 1977
Engine: 2F195775
Frame: 255886

Thanks, yours appears to line up with a 8/77 build date

I did a engine swap from a 3B diesel to a 2F petrol
Engine number 2F 490991
Year ?

Thanks, yours is probably a late 1980 cast date. You could check the casting date code to verify (see post #3).

FJ40
Build date 09/1984
Chassis # FJ40370570
Engine # 2F853181 (Has now been replaced with a 12HT turbo diesel)

Thanks, yours is about 100 units from being the latest FJ40 serial number we have.

Build date: Aug 1975

VIN: FJ40-206056

Engine: 2F 037491

Thanks, yours lines up with a 8/75 build date

The subject of this thread is 2F engines, not transmissions, so you may want to post your question elsewhere to get some responses/opinions.

FJ60

Build Date: 10/1985
Engine: 2F-867855

Thanks Onur, we don’t have a lot of FJ60 data so that is appreciated. Because yours has a date it is the highest point on the graph as of today and shows well how the production tapers off on or around 1985.

FJ40
Build 7/77
VIN: FJ40 254136
Engine: 2F 269923

Seems like it's a mid '78 2F ?

Seems to be an April-May ’78 2F, that is correct. Check the casting code to see for sure (see post #3).

1975 FJ40
1/75 Build
Frame 192188
Engine 002978

2F, 4sp, factory soft top

Not quite the earliest one in the list, but close!

7/75
VIN: FJ55 52084
ENGINE: 2F 238942

Your engine appears to line up with a 1/78 build date, so I would say it’s not original to your vehicle. You have the earliest FJ55 on the list though!

1979 FJ 40
Built Jun 1979
Mod. FJ40LV-KCJA
Fr. FJ40-307938
Eng. 2F 376830

Thanks, yours appears to line up fine with a 6/79 build date

January 1978 build date
FJ40 VIN FJ40267938
Engine: Don't have serial number handy. Original engine replaced with 1987 FJ60 2F.

I would be curious to know what the 1987 2F serial number is.

1977 FJ40
Build date: October 76
VIN: FJ40-235236
Engine: 2F 124900

Nellie FJ40 and dad4x4 both have VINs and engine numbers close to yours.

1978 FJ40
Build Date: May 1978
VIN: 278719
Engine: 271404

Thanks, yours lines up with a 5/78 build date.

I updated the file with these latest entries. It's looking pretty good, we have a good curve going. I still wish we had more input for 1980s model years, which the 60 series folks could provide.

Do you have an engine serial number? This is the one etched on the PS of the engine towards the back? Your information does not have an engine serial number.
