    So i am toying with the idea of desmogging my FJ60 and one question i have is what belt do you use to run the water pump?

    What are the advantages of de-smogging?

    I got one for way cheaper then that, let me find the information today during lunch. It came from a Cruiser guy on the LCML. Great part, simple and less expensive. It was just a pulley and bracket that replaced my smog pump but used the stock mounting bolts and belt tensioner...

    the sor one looks like a bling bling part, aluminum with their name engraved in it. I'd go for the cheap one stinkyfj60 is talking about.

    I have seen people use a double pully on the alternator to run the water pump. I think you have to then use a string to measure the length of the new belt. Take the string to NAPA to try to find a match. They may let you go to the racks and just measure a bunch.

    I have thought of the desmog as well. My smog pump is a shell so not working but everything else is intact. Mine runs great and at 15mpg with 230k. The only reason I have considered it is the power increase. I'm gonna watch this forum to see what happens.
    Thanks,
    Fish

    Found the info. It came from Jim Chenoweth (FJ40Jim@aol.com). I dont know if that is his current email addy but worth a try.
    It is a part he built, black brackets and a nylon pulley, replaces the smog pump in its factory location and uses stock belt. I paid under $100 for it in the winter of 03. Been on there since and hasnt given me any problems at all.

    Are you taking it off the road?

    If you desmog it, you won't pass the emissions test and won't be able to drive it on the street. (They're even doing emissions testing in Abilene, as I understand it).

    I ran a Delco CS unit in place of the Smog pump,it was almost a direct bolt in.I got kinda lucky a buddy of mine knows a guy that runs and owns a Alt and starter rebuild shop,he bumped the alt up from 90 to 140 amp and rigged a pulley for it,which was a spacer and disc spacer disc then the nut.
    The cool part is the belt lines up perfect ,the adjuster and lower bolts all work.The grinding I did was to emlarge the adjuster rail slighty ,very little did it with a die grinder in 10 sec

    This is the best I got... Its hard to see but the pulley and its mounting system are one square tubing and bolts up like the smog pump.

    That's the vacuum line diagram for the 2F engine ( dirty ) from the factory, right? Does that work for all years of the 60 series?

    if you wanted it to run smooth, you would need the carb and dizzy to match the vacuum lines.
