    Here is some info I greedily poached from CCOT site. I knew of it because I just bought the rear ouput speedi-sleeve from Napa yesterday for my '80 FJ40. I plan to install this weekend. The part number listed below was right for my fj40 (99177). You may need to verify. Or just go to NAPA and they can look it up for you.

    Napa's website lists the following Speedi-Sleeves for a 1978 Land Cruiser:

    Pinion Seal - 9/73-1/81 #99147
    T/C Front Output Shaft - #99169
    T/C Rear Extension #99147
    T/C Rear Output Shaft (parking brake drum) #99177
    M/Trans to 4/86 Front #99112
    Timing Cover (crankshaft pulley) to 10/84 #99177

    Regards,
    Andrew

    I'm in no way dissing Speedi Sleeve, but do you really even need one?
    Look at the seal and the shaft first.
    If the seal's worn and the shaft isn't, just replace the seal.
    If the seal's worn and the shaft is too, but the wear is only slight, just
    replace the seal.
    Installing a Speedi-Sleeve type of bushing is a repair, while replacing a
    seal is maintenance.
