Last year @wscbill schooled me in jack and starter handle placement. Seems well worth sharing:

"The diagrams shows several things: jack rod brackets, jack holder bracket, starting handle brackets. There are other diagrams that show the jack holder bracket for earlier years.

Your rig would have had 4 brackets on the passenger side wheel well for the jack rods. Arranged like this.

If your rig had the starting handle clips, they are on the driver side wheel well. The holes for the clips on standard, and have small screws installed if the clips are not. Placement is shown in this photos. Roll bar installs on early 40s usually affected the front pair on the wheel well. When Toyota made the roll bar standard, they moved the front pair back just in front of the 2nd rib on the wheel well.

Front wheel well screw pair on a 66.

This is a 65, shows the back wheel well screws location and the floor location. Due to the repair, the front wheel well pair are no longer there.

Closeup of the screws on the floor, quite small.

Recall my new Alpha lock from @dmamj was missing the little millimeter symbol (M/M) on the back, plus had "MADE BY ALPHA" on it.
No longer a problem! Thank you @dmamj . You da man Dan.

Well, the green color seems to have been discussed. With some nice pics, this one by @seth

I haven't seen it yet. Only the low resolution fleabay pic. But looking to the lower left of the Denso sticker, maybe that's a tiny patch of green under dirt?
Looking at other early ones, their Denso plates were oval. May of missed on this one. :(

Pretty sure that starter you bought was always black. Only the early ones like pictured are green.
