    While reading a post on one that doesn't work. I was reminded that my reservoir is toast. the plastic has self destructed from old age. (85 fj 60) I have no Idea if the rest of that system works. But I would like to replace the res. and then see if the pump etc. works. any Ideas. The closes toy dealer is 1 hour away. anyone know what this milk carton costs from a dealer. or Ideas.;)

    It is very expensive from what I have found, over $300 bucks. Best bet to try and find a good used one. If you find a good source, let me know, b/c I still haven't.

    I was afraid of that. I never have understood the factory pricing of cheap plastic parts. even though they were made from s##t to start with. ;)

    Not really made from factory s##t, just ~25 years of heating and cooling cycles under the hood that weakens the plastic.

    How much of yours is left? You may be able to build onto it and rig it to work. I don't have one at all. Maybe someone on here will point us in the right direction.

    ??? MSRP is $130. You should be able to get it for around $100 from cruiser dan.

    I think I got one from Cruiserparts.net not long ago. I'll have to check my reciepts for the price.

    I did look but of course no one lists one. I guess I could post a wanted on the list. It is not a high priority.
    thanks.

    I don't know what kind of crack I was smoking ($300, probably wrong part.), but found it on SOR for:

    194-80K
    Headlamp Washer Jar-Fits 10/83-1/90 FJ60 & FJ62-Comes with #194-81 cap
    130.78
    Yes



    Then again, at 130.78, it may as well be $300, I would probably have to go used, and then it would only be able to fetch $35 to $40 from me tops.

    That's where I got mine like 4 years ago. MUCH cheaper than new. Still Crack-Free.

    I just go mine today. I have a buddy who's family owns an auto parts store. He ordered it for me from a Toyota dealership he does business with and saved me about $15. It cost me around $110.
