In searching around on swapping fj62 third's into a 1984 (dec 1983) fj60, I have read indications that 1984 is a year that the fj62 part will not just "bolt on" to the 84 60. Anybody have the story on this?

I know the 5 spd is not a "bolt in" on pre 84's...I hope this swap out will not be a $erious nightmare too..

Bolt pattern of the DS/pinion flange may be different, but can be redrilled...

I assume you know that the 62 thirds are 4:11 while the 60's are 3:70...
