Would for sure use a specialist like marks off-road so you know it’s done right and with the best parts available. Not cheap but you can trust it will be done right.no definitely not a daily driver. Would be driving it during the summer from time to time, hopefully I'll make it out to a meeting one of these days in it. But I was just curious if a local shop can do just as good or if they really are a specialty item I should only trust Toyota FJ40 experts with.
I've heard horror stories of guys tuning them for many many days/weeks/months and still not getting it to run right. I think my biggest thing is probably running too rich but I'm no expert. Quite the opposite, they sort of scare me because I don't want to screw it up and then my landcruiser stops running because of it.
I'd haul it down to Valley Hybrid if I were you. Take the whole truck and let Georg rebuild and tune the carb. I will happily haul it on my flatbed car hauler if you pay for gas and lunch at Lucille's BBQ.I do also need to rebuild my steering box so I could send both out to him for rebuilding and get them both back ready to run. Thanks for the recommendations. Btw, any idea what that costs if you've ever had something done by Mark.
That's not a bad deal. He can do it during that time if we were to drive down there? I would imagine we'd need to schedule something ahead of time but that might be a fun little trip. How far is the drive?
It is about three hours from Reno.That's not a bad deal. He can do it during that time if we were to drive down there? I would imagine we'd need to schedule something ahead of time but that might be a fun little trip. How far is the drive?
