I tried to adjust the cable but I think I am missing something. The manual shows the cable stopper going into the boot/cover and you measure 1mm of the stopper comming out of the boot/cover.
I only have a orange boot on the cable that is tight to the cable. The stopper can't go into the orange boot. Is there something that should cover the orange boot and stopper? The only way I can measure 1mm, is to measure 1mm gap between the stopper and orange boot.I thing this is wrong. Without the boot/cover to measure from, what is the gap between the stopper and the orange boot?

Kurt,

Are you following this tech article?

I read that and the manual. I see H on your link. THe picture of the orange boot looks like mine. But on drawing the stopper goes into H. On the drawing there is more than 1mm gap between the stopper and where the cable goes the cable cover. What do I measure? I have no way to measure 1mm like it says in manual or the link.

Does any one have a pic they can post of the cable end. I think I might of lost the part that I measure 1mm from when I removed the trany two times.

I found out that there are a couple other 94 fzj80's with the same setup as mine. Their boot and stopper can't be measured like in the manual. Their stopper is to big to fit in the boot like it shows in the manual.

Who can I write to at Toyota about the manuals adjustment procedure not working with my 80? Their picture is not the same as my cable.

Kurt,

So maybe they will correct the picture and republish the FSM for a 1994 truck????

Come on Kurt, get real. Take a look at the section on disassembly of the birfield. The pictures are from a mini-truck and are not the same as the 80 birfield cage assembly. It's a guide but no manual is perfect. BTW, the pics are still wrong in the '97 FSM. :G

I don't expect to have them change the manual, but they can make a service bulletin. They make changes all the time and add them to their service bulletins. I have a manual for the fj60 that is only full of updates and corrections.
Why would they stop making corrections and update now???

Anyone have access to service bulletins?

I called Toyota USA and they are going to research the trany cable adjustment problem I am having.I also asked about getting the service bulletins. She will let me know.
Not related, I am tring to get Toyota to pay for the seat belts on the 87fj60 that wont retract. There is a recall on the rear seat belts that wont retract. They fixed once and dealer won't fix again without $$$.

I forgot to say that the seat belts were for the 87fj60. I guess that makes a big difference when I forget to add the model. My brain works faster than I can type.

I got a responce from Toyota USA about the cable adjustment. They said there should be 1mm of play in the cable. Now why didn't they say that in the manual?

I also got the regional rep for Toyota look into my 87fj60 seat belt problem. I will have an answer in a week or so.

One call to Toyota USA gets all my problem addressed.

This is for the 94fzj. From what I tell if that there should be 1mm of play/slack. That is when you turn the throttle there should be 1mm of slack. That doesn't make sense. Now I am confused again.

I see why I can't adjust per the Toyota manual. I looked in the Haynes repair manual and there is a pic of the fzj80 cable. There is a pic of a fj62 and it looks just like my cable. Now do I adjust my cable like a fj62 would? Why do I have a cable from a fj62?

Kurt,
If your not the original owner maybe someone did a little adapting. I have an 88 fj62 rust bucket and if no one gets back to you I will try to look it up in the book tomorrow.

Kurt,
I scanned the FJ62 cable adjustment page and will try to PM you. I don't know if it will do you any good if you have some kind of a Bastard setup.
