Thanks for posting these photos. First clear ones I've seen to help me hook up my mechanical throttle components, when converting from cable style throttle.Today I remedied my throttle linkage. After 40 years of pressing the accelerator pedal the ball and socket joints wore badly. I had about an inch + of play before the butterfly valves would open. Having zero luck sourcing new or remanufactured ball and socket linkage I reach out to @ToyotaMatt for some ideas. Of course he has some. I replaced the horizontal and small vertical push rods with two that he got from his Skunk labs that had perfectly rounded sockets. He was able to fit me with the earlier torque rod that did not have the ball on the end but a bushing. I also replaced the bracket that attached to the carb that has the receiver for the early bushing torque rod. The new torque rod also has perfectly round balls that fit snuggly into the push rod sockets. The original torque rod balls were oval and not round and just flopped around in the out of shape sockets. So now everything is tight! No play at all. It’s a nice feeling when I put on the gas. I think it has cut down my 1/4 mile time a tenth or two!
I also installed a nice shiny new heat shield and carb gasket/insulator.

I have to get paper sacks when doing a grocery run in a topless 40. The plastic bags rattle all the way home.Intended use: Confusing Jeep drivers, General purpose cruising and Fishing….

*Disclaimer: It was a sunny 64 degrees, my girl is still topless and we needed stuff……. Damn fine grocery getter!
Next weekend, hopefully.Nov 29 and nothing evergreen yet on a roof rack, or windshield folded down?
Our 40 sounds like a 40 again thanks to a set of hi/lo horns from @ToyotaMatt . Replaced set of Lexus Denso horns that sounded like a generic car horn and just didn't sound right.

Looking for brass ring terminals for after factory install of extra ground under horn relay screw. M8 diameter, and M6. BTW, I call them "bolts" when they are used with a nut, otherwise it is a "screw." What is correct name in JIS?
Hey I just noticed your post, I have a leaky t-case on my ‘78 and as previous mechanic didn’t do it right I want to take it on myself. Question is how? Any good sources you could recommend? Thanks. TomDrained the transfer case, fixed it’s leaks, and refilled it, then replaced the reverse light switch in the transmission. I can finally see backing up at night!
Next up is figure out why my turn signals have stopped working
Sound like a possible “trout sickness”?Next weekend, hopefully.
Might have to take my truck though.
The local mountain opens tomorrow, 15" of fresh powder, with another 8-12" forecasted overnight.
Chatting with the little tank ass nurse at work today she suggested that I take a day off tomorrow, I look like I might be getting sick.
@GA Architect she looks like the one on the left with the ankle tats.
