Nope, nor the clock it seems...though it must have been an option, as my 1984 has space for the clock.lowenbrau said:84 got a tach?
Split case was a BJ42 thing IE 1981 and later
Fuel tank under body was a '79 and later thing
'81 got big eye springs (as was said before) and p-brake on the rear axle.
'81 also got bigger TREs
'82 got a hump in the ps floorwell in anticipation of the H55f
'83 got the h55f and PS and aluminum dash
'84 lost the hand throttle, got a tach?

Cool on the split case, I thought it started in 80.
You are confirming a one year window of the fuel cell under the seat in the BJ40? I threw that out there to see as I though the fuel cell went underneath in 79 but...
I've never had a truck with the e-brake on the t-case output. Seems to me a better way then what they went to...?
They changed that floor a bunch of times for the diesel version. At least one change (in 82) for the five speed and two or three changes to the rear sill between '79 and '84.tlcruiserman said:I can tell you from the FJ4x series that the tank went underneath in 79' however the 79' thru part 80' still had the e-brake on the back of the t-case it was not split at that point. From mid 80' to 84' the gasser models had split t-case and e-brakes on axle. I do not think the floor changed at all, I thought once they went to fuel tank underneath that was the floor change and stayed the same from that point on.
Great information. My thottle cable is just below the dash on the right side of steering wheel. included picture of it:lowenbrau said:They changed that floor a bunch of times for the diesel version.

Compare an '80, '81 and '82 sometime if you have the chance. They had to keep moving the bump on the side of the tranny tunnel, chasing the t-case around.
You got the throttle eh? Is it the dash to the right of the steering wheel where there was a dash pad in previous years?
