I just did the math for the overall gear ratio on my 1984 Fj60. UGH! 1.99(T-case)x3.55(tranny)x4.56(new diffs)=32.21

Damn, I always hoped my tranny was 2.2something-or-the-other, but checked the FAQ and the 1984 and earlier 60s were 1.99 Low, right?

I guess its off to the drawing board to see what I can afford to drop that down in the future.

Here is what I found in the Cruiser Tech Trivia:


81-84 FJ60 w/H42 4-speed - 1.990:1
85-87 FJ60 w/H42 4-speed - 2.276:1

I always assumed Ih ad the 2.276 but after seeing this...? Mine is was built in Nov. 83 so it is definetly in the 81-84 range. Is there an easy way to check, did Toyota stamp their T-cases to know which one was wich?

Looking at the Specter catalog...
070-24S TRANSFER LO SPEED OUTPUT GEAR- 8/80-4/86
070-24T TRANSFER LO SPEED OUTPUT GEAR 4/86-8/87

I would say you have 2.28 and the FAQ is wrong, at least for US models. Most foreign cases seem to be 1.9 even up to the late 80's on 5spds.
