FJ40Jim said:I've seen 'em 1mm O/S. The catalogs used to show pistons up to 1.5mm.
2F is 4mm larger than F. The cylinder walls would have to be way thick (too thick) in order to allow boring 4mm, and still have good wall thickness remaining.
What would be the point of boring the block dangerously thin, just to get to the stock displacement of a 2F? 2F blocks are thrown away on a regular basis, just build one of them. Oh, and punch the 2F 1 or 1.5mm O/S.
4.4Litres of mighty driving force!
Sorry, didn't mean to sound nasty. It was a rhetorical question on my part also, "What's the point..".Degnol said:I said I was just curious!
now I get where you were going w/ the original post.I think it is very odd that the the '74 was a one-of-a-kind casting. Not usually the case with any mass-produced motor in a continuing line.
Thanks, buddy!BTW, I pick up the "package" tomorrow. 60 miles closer that previously thought!
I wish I could say that was all mine, but it is actually a quote from the owner's manual in one of the first FJ40's I ever had. It was a 1970 IIRC, so the owner's manual was still written in Engrish.65swb45 said:ROTFL! Too classic Jim. Some day you've got to publish a list of those!
