Advance Adapters Saginaw Installation Problem

Hey guys,

I am currently trying to install the advance adapters power steering conversion kit and a J20 Saginaw box onto my 1976 FJ40. I am having problem lining the adapter plate and box up that also leaves clearance between the box and the OME shackle and shackle bolts. There seems to be no way I can place the box that will allow both top bolts to be installed through the frame rail and also have the bottom forward bolt not hit against the suspension shackle fixed mount on the frame. If I try and bring the assembly down and in to have the bottom bolt clear the bottom of the suspension mount, then the aft part of the saginaw box hits on the inside shackle. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Here are some pics. I've searched for every pic I can find and I'm not seeing any that show my situation.

your cutting the part that starts to taper back down, just enough to clear the head of the bolt and use a wrench to put it back. that last bolt lands right on the angle of the hanger IIRC.. I notched mine when i had my crawler. I snapped the bolts on the saginaw box but never broke the spring mount.

Gotcha, sounds good. I appreciate the response.

At first I didn’t understand the question. Your post made it clear. I notched my shackle hanger too. No issues.
