You guys are great and have lead me in the right direction for things on here to search for. I looked at dozens of photos of different years of blocks, heads and head gaskets. Seems someone put a F1.5 head on the original F block. BTW I don't think I mentioned this is a but the 40 is 11/1970 and engine number is F 333 022. I think I may have the wrong head gasket since from photos it appears my engine has a coolant passage in the block where the F1.5 and F2 engines have an oil passage. So in my case the head Felpro gasket might be more of a universal fit POS (?) and joins my coolant passage on the block with the head bolt oil passage to the rocker arms on my F1.5 head. I think I just have to take it apart to find out. unfortunately.

For the head gasket, I keep reading in older post to use a Toyota gasket but it looks like they are discontinued now. Who sells a good gasket that is engine generation specific without combining holes generic fit
My FJ40 has the reverse problem. Apparently a 1.5F block and a 1F head. I’m still investigating.
I bought this July FJ40 body with the Nov 1974 block from a guy in Santa Barbara twenty years ago. Also odd, the casting number 60032 appears on the block and the head and someone apparently tapped into a rocker pedestal to put oil on the rocker assembly so now I have an oil bypass running outside of the engine.

Looks like both our PO's are backyard mechanic innovators. LOL An update to my saga, after spending all the time and $$$ on the engine, trans, TC, brakes, axle parts, tires, I ended up with a FJ60 chassis with a good running drivetrain newer tires and better looking rims than I had. Also has PS and disc which were future upgrades I had planned but would have been very expensive. So glad I found this 60 chassis, but wish wish the timing was prior to any work I had done.

What happened to the FJ40? Are you transplanting FJ60 parts to the FJ40?
