I am doing the front knuckles on a friends 73 FJ40. What is a good source for safety wire? I have tried all the parts stores and no one carries it.

Thanks,

Brandon

or try your local airport most hard ware on acft are required to be safetywired... i belive snapon carries several different sizes. oh and the pliars are called "safety wire pliars" :p

oh and watch the ends on that stuff it's damn sharp... i have the scars to prove it.

Thanks, the motor cycle shop did the trick. Found some at summitracing too (pluss the pliers) but didn't want to wait for shipping. A good think to have on hand if you plan on working on the front knuckles/brakes of that early Land Cruiser.

I use some stuff from the depot called picture hanging wire. About a million feet for $3. All the wire does is keep the bolts from turning out. A dab of blue lok tite will do the same thing. As for the tool, I call it a vise grip.
