Hey. I'm new to Ih8MUD and also new to complete frame off FJ rebuilds. I bought my '71 FJ40 in NH, originally a CA truck so rust isn't bad for an FJ. I've got parts to do a disk brake conversion, power steering conversion and I also have a SB 350 with a Muncie 4-speed for it. Any thoughts/ problems I might run into changing the tranny to a manual? I'll post pics soon. Just POR-15ed the frame.


Check the FAQ; lots of good information about...just about everything.

EDIT: Oh, and check this one out while you are at it; full of build info. :cheers:
Welcome to MUD! Get ready for lots of knuckle bashing, cursing and loss of spare money! Really, you will learn so much and love the outcome of your work. Good luck. I am at the same point on my 71 build.

Dont forget the pics.
