I feel really dumb even asking this question, but I am buying an 86 fj60 and went to check the dip stick to see the condition of the oil because the fj has been sitting for 7 years and I looked for 20 min and could not find the dip stick. I have never seen a vehicle that didnt have an oil dipstick. I did remove the oil fill cap and saw no signs of water which is what I what I was looking for. I did notice a lot of play in the valve arm? so I am sure a valve adjustment will be high on the priorty list once I get it running. Anyways, is there a dipstick, if so where the heck is it?
with dizzy removed...

You werent the only one who couldnt find the dipstick first shot. My friend and I, 2 people, took about 15 minutes combined to find it
I painted mine a high temp rattle can yellow (as it had the remnants of yellow paint on it when I bought the rig)...can't miss it now...
