For sure, the 38mm idler did not start until 4/86 and went through the end of the FJ60 production.
If you want the "best" split case for an FJ60, a 4/86-87 is slightly more desirable.
This is definitely wrong. I have an 84 case which is now spare and it is 1:1.99 and has a 34mm idler. I'm plotting to get it behind my FJ40!stinkyfj60 said:My understanding was all US spec splits are 2.28. I know the FAQ here says one thing, I asked this question here awhile back. IIRC the trucks that came with a lower first gear in the tranny (like the H55F) got the 1.99 ration in the low gear of the t-case.
The 80 series case is a completely different animal. It would be cool if an earlier model split case could be adapted but it looks like the bolts are in the wrong place. If you get this to work, post it up!lowtideride said:Anyone know a difference between the 62 case and the 91-92 fj80 case. i hate full time 4wd drive and would like to run a 62 case in my 80 so it can be a part timer...I know the fj80 and the fj62 had the same tranny and engine I am just hoping I can run a 62 case with it.
Go to the international forum and ask how to convert an 80 to part time. I swear I have seen an Australian kit to do this with lock out hubs and more... I could be mistaken, but worth a try.lowtideride said:Anyone know a difference between the 62 case and the 91-92 fj80 case. i hate full time 4wd drive and would like to run a 62 case in my 80 so it can be a part timer...I know the fj80 and the fj62 had the same tranny and engine I am just hoping I can run a 62 case with it.
Cruiserdrew said:Talk to Dave Tay about converting a FJ62 t-case for use with a manual tranny. It requires a new 4wd shift mechanism, and a different high low shift fork and rod.
In the US the FJ62 transfer case is pretty cool-the gears on the output shaft use bearings instead of bronze bushings like all the other transfercases before it. If you could sort out the details, that *might* be worthwhile for a swap on to a manual tranny.
I'm herejefferson-mo said:Thanks Drew....how do I find Dave? Does he have a diiferent screen name?
Maybe I do want a 62 case..........I like bearings........
