    I mounted a rear electric locker for an FJ80 in the front of my FJ40. At the ECPR I cracked the housing that holds the motor and lock/unlock assembly on the side of the locker. Does anyone have this housing part they would sell to me?

    Also, how would I repair it? Can the housing thingie be removed and replaced with the diff in place? All recommendations greatly appreciated.

    I don't have an answer, but I'd guess you might have better luck in the 80's section finding someone that knows about this.
    good luck:beer:

    If you can't find a new one, you can always build up the missing piece by TIG welding and machine the flat surface.

    Looks like you hit it on a rock time to weld a skid plate. Toyota has them new for the best price.
