My 12 year old son and I did the valves, carb, timing, pcv valve, air filter and plugs. Vacuum gauge measured 16 to start, 17.5 when done. Had a few intake valves that were tight. Tomorrow we will do compression test to get baseline numbers.
It has been almost 4 years since I got grease on my hands. Great feeling. The “ Iron Yak” runs great.

Added the front grille and cage back onto the beast. Kind of like the look of it without a bezel.

I have to agree with you. I just recently said the same thing about my own. I had thought about trying to find some older fj45 headlight trim rings. I haven't looked yet, but its on my list of things to look for. If you go that route let us know what you did. Rig is looking awesome by the way!!

20 yrs ago or more, when I had to remove the factory bezel to replace a burnt out headlight, I knew it was not going to go back on.

Had cold starting issues with the Old Gurl. Traced it to the starter. Replaced with a spare FJ60 gear reduction starter I had lying around. Now she sounds "different". I don't like it😰. Gonna have to look at rebuilding my old starter. Are parts still available for the old direct drive starters?

Interesting...about 3-4 weeks ago, my original starter died and I located a starter locally (Autozone) that got me back on the road, but hated the sound. I finally located a Toyota GRS and installed it today, and yes a completely different sound...now I don't remember what the original sounds like :(

Regardless, I think this one is a keeper...much better than the original.
