Prior to buying my 70 FJ40 eleven years ago the original had the head liner replaced. Had a locate shop where he lived in Eastern Arizona do the job. Not original but decent. The cap to rest of the hard top is sloppy to say the least. Used some type of tar that has never hardened. Cleaning it has been a chore. Guess should be glad there no rust and original paint is still in great shape. What are people using to replace the packing and weatherstripping between the cap and hard top/windshield?

Another question best way to remove weatherstripping/glue from 52 year old doors? Paint on these two are in great shape.

Third unrelated question, what is the spline count the split case output shaft? Thought it was 19 spline the the transmission tailshaft. Maybe it's 16?

SOR sells a hardtop weatherstrip kit for $220.00. Thais is what we used.


That kit looks like the hard top to the tub. Do not believe this top has ever been removed. Original I bought it from stated he never removed it. The cap itself was removed to replace the head liner. I currently have the cap loose to clean up the goo mess. It squeezed out on the outside and looks sloppy. I want to clean everything up. Wax the top of the hard tops sides before installing the cap. This cruiser has spent it entire life in AZ. Original owner parted is in a carport on the north side of his house. He was living there in 3/70 when he bought it new. Same address on the original title. All original glass with weatherstripping that hasn't split at the seam ans leave a gap.

Drove up to the hills to take a run, the views aren't too shabby either.

That second photo is a similar view to what I saw when in your hood last fall. It was a breath-taking feeling that you just cannot describe when that kind of beauty lies in front of you. You are a blessed man to be able to make a life where you do! I drove to the top of Horsethief Peak I think it was called, and I didn't even bother to get out the phone as I knew I couldn't capture the size and perspective correctly. You nailed it on this one!

Had the day off so I tackled some pesky cruiser maintenance that I have been putting off for a while. Adjusted the valves, leaned out the carburetor mixture, swapped in a new cap and rotor and replaced the air filter. Timing was good so I checked all fluids and went for a drive. So nice having quiet valves on a well tuned 2F!

GA - As close to the lake as I can afford...
Been on a mission to at least ‘improve’ my ride quality: recently replaced bent relay rod, new pitman arm, spring shims, new shackles as well as TRE’s all redone earlier…………
Today I crossed another item off my “maybe this will help” list: Road Force balancing - BEST $57.94 I’ve ever spent!
Work done at Milton Martin Toyota (oldest Toyota dealership in Georgia) I couldn’t get a tire place to work on it because of the 33’s on OEM wheels - dealership didn’t say a thing!
It was a much better drive…….. took the long way home!
