Well first off my name is Dan and I have a 77 fj40. I've been lurking around here for awhile now taking tons of useful info that I've found on the board. I started off not knowing ANYTHING about fj40's except they looked fun and were NOT jeeps. I started out about 2 years ago with paying way to much for it on ebay. Then 3 weeks later the mallory distributor went haywire. After 2 new modules the thing still wouldnt stay timed correctly. Finally found the problem while driving down the road and my motor seized. Distributor shaft froze stopped the oil pump and well that was that. 3 2f's later im contemplating a 350. Oh yea and it was once red heres a few pics of the process. http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/...cket.com/albums/t30/77landsitter/IMG_0594.jpg

That color is slick.....I really like it! Sorry to hear about your ups and downs since you purchased it. I was in the same boat as you last year when I bought mine, I was a big fan of letting others do the work on my cars, not the case anymore.

So how come you keep going through the 2Fs?
