Great thread. I plan on doing similar things to my 60. What made you choose AFI over FITech. Just curious. Great job thanks for the photos and detailed info.

Great to see an old cruiser not being Frankensised. How the years fly by on Landcruiser forums
FITech is still fairly new to the 2F game from what I have gathered. While I agree that it seems like a great product there might be a bit more modification that is needed to make it fit the 2F where as the AFI system is specifically built with the 2F in mind. That's not to say that the FITech wont be an awesome addition.
Picked up my flywheel
The stuff that takes time if you want the engine compartment to start off looking nice is the cleaning. I spent about 2 hours on the bench grinder knocking off grease and paint from years of a leaky motor.
I got a bit done. It looks so good clean.
Now I study boobs for 3 hours
Turd polishing continues
This truck still had the rubber cushions on the inspection cover. I peeled them off, got all the grease off them and reinstalled
A little aluminum engine paint on the Coolant pipes
Thermo housing polished and sealed with some polish.
Polished to a clean dull aluminum. Not polished. Hate that. Used a nice wheel paste that adds a little wax type seal so it won't tarnish immediately like they donif you just wire brush.
That thermo housing is thrashed. Need a spare? Might have one in the parts stash.
Might be able to get away with putting JBWeld on the pitting and smoothing it out. That thing looks like it's trying to start a coolant leak
Valve cover and inspection cover look like new!
Thanks for the offer. I'm going to smooth it out with some JB Weld. It is fine. Most all of mine have been this way.
This was not fun but it is satisfying in the end.
Parts washer then as much as my bench wire wheel could reach then wheel polish and a tooth brush.
Hand buffed after. Not perfect but nice and clean
My wife is out of town so I was able to sneak off to the shop for an hour or so and continue the polishing-o-de-turd......
Knocking crap off all the parts going on my pretty motor.....I had so much oil and grime, its crazy.
I added liquid steel on the thermo housing and all the pinholes I could find in the tubes. I'll let it dry and polish it all smooth(ish)
You need the gaskets for the upper to lower halves.
Let me know, I can get them out.
Upper and lower 1/2s of what?
I soaked the truck in Simple Green while it rained all day then got out there and brushed off all the built up grease and grime.
Great work so far - very impressed!
Lots of work shown here, and it looks great.
I pressure washed the underside focusing on the passenger side where we will install the fuel pump and filter.
After that I listened to webcasts for work and mindlessly went through every bag of bolts I removed and cleaned them on my wire wheel.
Toyota bolts are so great. For the most part after cleaning they all look perfect.
After that I treated all the engine area with rust and the frame with my favorite product.
This stuff will do its thing and adhere to the rust and I will come back with some spray paint and seal it up.
Everything is stacked up in piles and ready to install (when the motor arrives .... bites nails)
