Now I my son and I need to get back to working on his Fj60 and get it back to running. His smog pump seems to be the problem,my son bought a bunch of stuff to desmog with a Webber 38 from man a fre but I think they sold him the wrong carb after doing some research should have been a Webber 36 I believe? Anyhow be for smog pump went bad/locked up had to take fj into a shop it was just running bad shop adjusted valves and carb. It was running great and then the smog pump. Well after reading here I think I want to keep the Toyota carb since it was running so good after the adjusted things . But now the smog pump? WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO?

Think that posting in the 60 series forum would be the best place to start.

I think you should junk the smog pump and keep the Toyota carb. Here's the link to 60 series forum. Search there to learn how to do without smog pump. 60-Series Wagons

Any reason this shouldn't work??? Looks good from here.
Straight from the FSM for head gasket replacement:

Step one: "Strike intake manifold with 3 lb iron headed hammer in a star-pattern; either 35 times or until technician's arm is tired."
