I had this1971 FJ40 about 15 years, mostly stock, 1F, 3-speed, ambulance doors. The vacuum shifter has never worked. The unit at the firewall and the transfer case are both at fault. Neither vacuum shifter parts nor direct shifter parts are available, new or used. Thinking of an Advance Adapters Twin Stick unless somebody has better advice. TIA.

Post a wanted ad in the classifieds, I'm pretty sure someone here on MUD can set you up. If not, call Classic Cruisers.

I have refurbished vacuum control boxes, upper and lower, as well as complete floorshift conversion kits. My contact info is in my signature line.

65swb45,

I have decided to convert to direct manual shift for the transfer case. So, the hunt is on for shift linkage and the "control box" at the t-case.

I have a complete kit, very competitively priced. But I won’t be able to get to it for a week.

Should be able to fit the Holley stuff in the same box.😉

March timetable at your convenience is not a problem. I have three FJ40s to wake up after 2 years, so will be busy with service related items.
