The new carb that you sent me really makes the engine alive. Best investment for my '70 FJ40 yet. I do have a question. I have a problem with starting the FJ up after it sits awhile (a week or more). I have to put my hand over the carb to produce enough vacuum to get fuel up to the carb to start. I think I have the choke fully closed but I still have to put my hand over the throat to get it to start. After that the FJ starts fine. What Can I do? I currently have a after market air filter on it right now.

Thanks,
Buck

I love my TH carb, runs like a top but the fuel drains out of the bowl overnight. Looks to be seeping out but cannot tighten the bolts that hold the jets I think any more. Thought I would take them out and replace the washers but it feels like I will strip something, they are that hard to remove. If I take them apart and ruin a gasket, where do I get a kit?

Hi.
I'm looking for a distributor for a 82 Fj40. Engine is full-smog, and stock. Do you have any for sale?
Thanks!

Payment sent for a 2F (1987 FJ60). I bought one for my FJ40 a few years ago and it is Awesome! Hoping for the same results with my 60! Thanks Marshall!

Thank you Marshall and team! I received my carb last week and have been busy working to get it fitted. This unit is replacing my Weber carb. One thing to note, I ordered a base plate from SOR which took significant work to get a good flush fit (pulled out breather and bent straight).

Can someone tell me if I need to cap this valve cover breather? Also, where does the electrical plug go from the carb?

Thank you!

Wondering if this issue ever was resolved...It seems as though there were some other comments on the hard starts after sitting.
