I'm doing a 350 conversion to my 77' FJ40 using a Downey bell housing....350 to Toyota 4 speed and I'm having a couple problems. I bought the cruiser in the middle of the conversion so I don't know everything about the conversion parts: Bell housing, Engine etc. Starter problem: My starter will spin as though the solenoid is not working. I removed the starter and had it tested and it's good. Upon removing it I realized that the previous owner used a grinder to manipulate the starter to fit and now it doesn't line up with the fly wheel teeth every time (if the engine is slightly turned by hand the starter will engage). I have tried to find a 350 starter that will work but I'm having trouble. Has anyone had this problem? What starter do most use for this type of conversion? I have a block mounted starter and the engine is from an 86 K-5 Blazer with auto transmission Also alternator wiring: When wiring the "GM heavy duty" alternator to the Toyota harness, I've discovered a strange problem. Once the alternator is hooked up the cruiser will not shut off by the key. Somehow the coil continues to get power even after the key is turned to the off position. I have checked my own wiring to the ignition switch and it checks out with the Downey manual. Any suggestions?
