I have three cars I'm going to just blow out the door cheap. All are running(ish) or close now but I was wondering what I could steal off these for my FJ40? I can take the PS pump off the Caprice I think (I can see 7812145 and 43242 on the top of it) and I'm sure there's more but I don't know what. Any thoughs on this or anybody need anything else?

the power steering pump should work fine and grab the gear box too, and if its a 4 and 1/4 turn stop to stop i would use it and if its a 3 and 1/4 its still useable just not preffered. and if its got a tilt column i might grab that too, is the shifter on the column or ? also the shaft from the column to the gear box because its calapseable and can be used to make a custom one for the cruiser. thats about it i think unless you want to go V-8 ?

Naw, I'll think about a swap if the 2F decides to take a crap but until then we'll stay friends. I would be happiest taking the parts off the Escort and Caprice as they're in the worst shape. So the steering stuff off the caprice for sure. Shifter is on the column but I can take everything else for the PS, how do I know how many turns it is? I know I want the 4.25 but how can I tell?

I know the 68 Impala had the correct one and I just checked the parts number and they both seem to use the same one so I should be golden right?

Okay, anything else? Fuse boxes, brakes, anything you can think of? I'm not gonna get crap for the two cars so I should just run em bone dry!
