I know, check the FAQ. My parts FJ40 is a 76 register year, with the VIN of FJ40208452, which I believe is somewhere around October of 75 production date. It never came with an engine, and I am trying to figure A: what engine would have been in it (I'm assuming a 2F) and B: what smog components would it have had? If you need any more info from me, let me know.

Thanks,

-DJ

DJ, I have a May 1976 production 40 if you want to swing by and take a look. October 1975 might have been a ‘75 model though, which might’ve had different emissions equipment.

Engine was definitely a 2F regardless.

Carson, thanks for the offer! I'm really wanting to know about the smog equipment. I'm looking at trying to get it registered and back moving somewhat before the new CARB stuff hits the fan in 2021. With no engine, trying to get it cleared as a 75 makes it hard. I am hoping someone with that rough production date may be able to help fill in what would have been on the engine smog wise. I'd still like to swing by and talk cruisers at some point though. Always fun to do.

Oct 75 should be registered as a 76 model year, or do they go by actual build date??

Not really sure yet, but I would like to try and see what the differences are. It is titled as a 76, but I would really like to see if I can avoid emissions with it.

A '75 or '76 Toyota 2F Engine Emission Control manual would tell you everything you want to know. There are a few scanned ones of different vintages here and there on Mud. I have an '81 edition myself.

Thanks,
My ‘76 is 100% original with all smog components if you want to check it out or see pics.
Does your 76 have the reactor on it in California
