@Spook50 got my window relay working perfectly. sorry about the messy bench in the background. that’s mostly my “to do” box of fj62 stuff and tools not put away properly 🙄

window up… window down… window up…

hottest day of the year so far where i live. just got my a/c fixed after my pressure hose blew last week. so thankful to be sitting here after riding my bike to go get it! i guess my line touched my pulley some time ago and on another hot day it burst. new line and we’re good. i was scared it was going to be a compressor or something hard to fix!!

this link might be helpful:

I bought a replacement blower motor on rock auto and it was nearly Identical. I have my old blower motor on my bench but haven’t got around to installing the new brushes.
thanks man!! the motor itself has never made any noise to make me think it’s worse than just brushes. that’s the only thing if found wrong so far. maybe i’ll get a rock auto one and then repair this one. then i’ll at least have a back up for years to come!

got my blower motor working again. put new brushes in the original. ill keep the aftermarket one as a spare.

i got new brushes from Blower Repairs - https://www.4crawler.com/4x4/CheapTricks/Blower.shtml and used these instructions.

then as outlined i cut the old brushes off the wires and soldered the wires to the brush housings.

this way the new brushes just slide in and can be replaced as many times as necessary.

the hardest part was reassembly. after inserting the brushes i slid the brush holder over the commutator bar.

after that i put the cap on.

then i put the entire armature back inside the housing and buttoned everything back up.

reinstalled and i have a blower again. it is a little noisy but i assume as the brushes wear in it’ll quiet down again

here’s the rock auto one. you can’t open it up to rebuild it and it doesn’t come with a wire connector. just fyi for those buying it. otherwise it looks fine.

can anyone explain why this phenomenon is happening. i have dual batteries but only one has significant corrosion. i figure if it was an over charging issue then they’d both have it?

the one with the corrosion is the one that is indeed connected to the alternator but both should see the same charge should they not? there is no isolater between them of any kind. both are exactly the same battery installed at the same time

have you checked battery voltages while running/charging? IIRC blue stuff is a precipitate of copper. could be a leak? are the batteries two, seven, or ten years old (guess based off date sticker on second battery pic)?

they are old. still loads of power in them though. just found it interesting that one would corrode and not the other.

are you leaking from the battery on the one thats bad ? I dont' know off hand why one battery would be prone to issues and not the other...all things equal, but all things may not be equal is your battery is leaking fluid ..

no the boot had absolutely no sealing /trapping capacity. it barely stays on at the best of time.

it could be leaking fluid but i don’t see any moisture on it. i’ll check the water levels

quick project this evening. i replaced my windshield washer reservoir. it’s one made by @TRFarmers! perfect fit. took me 15 minutes mostly because with double batteries getting one bolt out was kind of slow! beautiful reproduction!

i’ve noticed a leak unfortunately from the bottom of my pump. hopefully it’s a bad hose only. gotta pull it out again and see 😞

we’ll the leak stopped after the top inch dripped out. not sure what that’s about. i don’t see any cracks and it seemed it was leaking from below. oh well i’ll just keep an eye on it now.

last night i started the process of adjusting the valve shims. @Bdbierman did his on his 1hdt and found it ran better so we decided after 500 000 km mine many have never been done we should do them. most gaps were tight. i figure that’s a sign the the valves are a little worn (most were in the range of 8 hundredths if a mm) so we were able to move a few shims around to get half in spec and the rest closer to spec. i have to order a few new shims of the right height and i’ll set those in once i get them. fun job and really not hard with the right tools. just have to make sure the math adds up which is fun with a few beers on board 😂
