@Rao cruise No prob dude... they are not my videos but helped me immensely when I was doing my knuckle rebuilds... Not sure what tool you are specifically talking about for the lock nut... The basic tools needed for this job are a 54mm (i think) socket for the large nut the hold the axle in, then a brass drift (piece of brass bar), small sledge hammer or mallet, few different screw drivers (flat head), grease gun, couple of different punches for removal of things like the bearing races, seal puller (cannot recommend this enough), torque wrench, M12x1.25x3" screw (helps hold the axle, think that is the right thread pitch and size), fish scale for setting proper tension, c-clip (circlip) pliers and lock ring pliers (two different types of pliers). Then there are little odds and ends like screwdrivers, towels (mess job), oil pan, etc that will be needed.

Replacing a FJ62 grill. I know, super basic. So...1989 FJ 62, I'm Jay aka alaska120 in AK, truck has acquired the name Pig (mostly due to the insane fuel it burns - currently pushing $4 a gallon in my town) 189,000 original miles, lots of character and patina, all stock as delivered by the Toyota gods...

Well there is the cold for sure. Winter brings customers and race car building season though the better to enjoy the 24 hour daylight in summer. :steer:

Well that's helpful.
Not to be too much of an a$$ but not many have had luck keeping their weber and the truck happy. Most eventually will just switch back to the Aisin carb and are surprised by the power and simplicity. With that being said, do some searching and even try the 40-series threads to see if anyone has had good luck with tuning it.

To be honest you're not the first person to tell me that. I'm currently looking into a replacement.
