Still collecting bits and pieces for the rig. Ordered a new complete electrical system from @Coolerman and had the alternator sent off for a restoration at Mosley Motors. Excited to have functioning electrics. Years of bad repairs (some by me when I didn't know better) need to finally get fixed.
Planning on flying down to CA soon and hope to crank out some work. New tires are first on the list, then swapping in the restored dizzy and electrical parts.
Thanks! Its been hard having it two states away and not being able to drive or work on it..... but with a cruiser at our house already maybe that is a good thing. hahaha.Enjoyed the thread. I wish I knew were my 1974 FJ40 is that I bought in 1979 and sold in 83 was. Lots of great memories and yet I dont have any pictures, sad.
Been a while since a update. Getting ready to head down to CA for Christmas and prepping to get some work done on the cruiser. First order will be to install the restored dizzy and get it running again, then get the tires replaced. I some Falken 235/75R15s on order (super good deal). I am truly going to miss the 33x9.5 tires but the dry rot on them is so bad. Have a few more parts I am hoping to be able to install this visit but with holiday craziness we will see how much time I get.
