recently I purchased this 1973 fj55. well, stole would be more realistic. bought with a 350 v8 with a 700R4 tranny, billet aluminum radiator and four brand new BFG M&S 29-9.5's. purchase price $750.00. now as happy as i am to have a loud v8, it will at the end of the day still be a small block 350. i cannot live with this. and so i have decided to go diesel. Detroit Diesel 638 to be more specific. now i just have to find a complete engine. this should be fun. eh?
