    Yes I have a 70 fj 40 that had the vacuum system pitched that sh*t.I think I have all the parts to put in the shift linkage,but I can't figure out how it works unless I'm missing somthing

    Parts I have
    New cone
    stock 3 speed tcase linkage and side linkage with fork installed


    Does anyone have pics of how it should be and the measurements of where to cut the hole in the tunnel so I don't cut one bigger than I need
    Thanks pi**ed off and confused :D

    You wouldn't happen to still have that Vacuum switch would you? I stripped the threads in mine and need to replace it. I'm not at the point of wanting a manual lever yet, kinda keepin to the romantic restoration bit for now. If you haven't sent it to the dump yet, I sure could use it.

    I have a complete vacuum shift assembly I pulled from my 1968 FJ-40 when I converted it to floor shift. Let me know if you are interested in it. I am in Tucson.

    I'm interested. Especially in the switch itself that mounts to the firewall.

    Do any of you guys with older FJ40's have column shifter parts you yanked out and don't want? I'd love to get my hands on a set so that I can clean them up replace mine. I think I'm all set with the vacuum shifter, getting one from Paul Fantry in MT. But if anyone has one they're willing to get rid of for the cost of postage only, I'll take it. I wouldn't mind becoming a source for some of the older fj40 parts for people who want to restore rather than replace. I just hate to see the stuff get thrown out.
