Picked up my 1978 FJ40 today. Its a project not running but has an aluminum tub and is solid. The fenders are new also. and it has a new bestop tigertop never installed. What I need to get it running don't know yet may just be a carb or fuel pump(Ithink the guy I bought it said he tried to rebuild it and may have lost some parts) and battery.The bezel is in the back some slight surface rust so it needsome cleaning paint and the screws to hold it on. The frame and underneath is rusty and it definitely will need an exhaust and rear bumper. It has a ramsey winch rep9000 not sure if it works. It has the original seats(need recovering) and jump seats(they may not fit with the roll cage???? don't undertstand why) and it has the rear heater(very neat looking) and locking metal console.

I thought it had potential and hopefuly doesn't take much to get it running

I'm not 100% sure but the fuel pumps changed slightly with the 79' and up. I had a 78 and relpaced the engine with a 79', the carb (79) did NOT have a fuel return line. The 78' carb setup has the fuel return line coming from the carb. I'm not sure but I believe some later (79+) may have a provision for a retrurn line, Jim C. would probably be able to tell you for sure.
