aisins on a 74 are swapped in. The rig has disks up front correct?

They will work fine..


There is one issue potentialy, There were some long Aisins produced. I have never seen one in person. But they do exist. and it is possible that you have a set. But I seriously doubt it..

Could be a 08/75 and later non-USA 40 series drum brake front axle...it could then have the long body Toyota lock out.... :)

Craigslist man....who's to say that someone did not bring something into the USA and cut it up?

I would not rule anything out Jason.


Who knows what it is without seeing it?

It depends. 79 and later FJ40 Aisin hubs will work on non-IFS mini truck axles.


+1 ,

I'm in the same boat and trying not to have to buy used hubs for a hundred bux or new ones for 200 bux. All I need are the basic rebuild parts like detent springs, ball and larger internal spring. Even the stealer doesn't carry them. They wanna sell you hubs for 325 bux......

Longer ones are roughly 2.28" from mounting surface to crown where bolts enter.

Shorter ones measured around 1.8", not quite 1/2" shorter.

Both fine splined

What I don't get is (please correct me if I'm wrong on this) that FJ60 birfs are longer than FJ40's by more than 1/2", and mini birfs are longer than FJ60's by what seems more than a 1/2"?

The hubs must all be different lengths also?

60 birfs are the same length as a mini birf..

Late 40 birfs are the same length as a mini/60 birf.

78 and older birfs are longer..

I never had minis, 60's or 40's in front of me at the same time.

must have confused the older birfs

any idea why the different length Aisin's

because the older disk braked axles 76 to 78 LC birfs were longer.

Also, as Poser said, outside the US they got drum brakes and Aisins..

IIRC, if your gonna use mini or 4 runner parts then you can use years 79 -85. I do not believe IFS parts are interchangeable..
