Hi all. Am about to acquire a 4 speed tranny (77 FJ40) to rebuild and have for when my current one comes out. I've found a couple of rebuild kits online but none give indications of quality, i.e. best bearings, synchros, and such. If you've found a high quality kit that you believe in would be great hearing from you. Thanks!

..I am no longer supplying parts and I endorse robert at heart of texas for most things like these kits. Synchros are not normally included and the aftermarket suck- so buy OEM. The downside is kitting etc a 4sp (H42, 3.55:1 first) is a money looser. If you must have a 4sp Toyota do so, otherwise consider a gm 4sp or H55 upgrade (H41's are far too rare).

Find a better used 4sp with less miles/wear- should be under $100.

I second the suggestion of just getting a good used one. It is a money loser and they are a PITA to rebuild because of the ball bearing on the front of the counter shaft requires a special puller or a lot of patience and the BFH.
