Hi, I'm new to the forum, but have had my 1977 fj40 for almost 2 years. I have put a lot into getting this thing right, but I still have some work to do.

The gears are very tough to shift between 1st and 2nd. I had a new master and slave put in last year as well as a clutch re-build, but the grinding of gears is beginning to annoy me.

Does anybody know of a good transmission shop or fj40 shop in the san jose or san francisco bay area?

I would love to do the work myself, but I just dont have room at the house. Here are some pics of the fj. http://www.f***

I also would like to get some suspension work done and the front axle needs some work. It would be nice to find a place I could leave the vehicle and slowly get all of the work done.

Thanks in advance!
hi there. welcome!

anyways there is a great place in gilroy, ca. talk to ron ( great guy)

and the best tranny place to go to is ammco transmissions. they are located in just about any city.

good luck!

and to add another thing, your cruiser is the best i have seen. that thing is nice! to say the least
Mudrak Custom Cruiser
Custom Cruiser FJ40
I forgot to mention Georg earlier. He could also recomend someone he is connected in the transmission circles.

For just transmission work research out a transmission shop in your area. You might contact someone in the MTA- San Jose TLCA club and ask for a referal. They are located in the San Jose ARea. Nice Cruiser.

Really nice looking rig!
I'm on the SF peninsula, and I'm having Valley Hybrids (Georg) 650 576-2023 in Stockton do a SO, high steer, front disc, sm465, skid plate X member, trac bar, and a bunch of other things. I visited his shop a week ago, and he does some nice work. Its 1 1/2 hours away, but worth the drive considering his labor and parts cost were very fair. When I talk to Georg in person or by e-mail, he is a very intelligent guy and knows his stuff.
