im looking at a total tranny overhaul for my '87 fj60. question...obviously price will play a huge roll here, but which direction would you go considering stock 373 gearing and 33's??

I vote for the H55f. Most of the $ in the swap is your labor anyway, so that being the case, the H55 is the same amount of work or less, plus the tranny is BRAND NEW. The H41 is a step in the right direction, but the H55 is what you want.

BTW Tinker-if hullendersauce comes to his senses and gets the H55, I'll give you the $100 plus shipping for the H41 which I want to put in my FJ40 with my spare FJ60 split case.

I think that the NV4500 would be a good choice, but that's me.

If not then the H42.

thanks!

well, H55 will have to wait. im still really not that sold on it. im still geared at 373, and will only ever run 33's, so the 5th doesnt seem that desirable. and from what i hear, its a 'small' 5th. as far as the low 1st, IM SOLD! especially since i stuck myself with these 373's after my ARB install (duhhhhh). guess ill have to drive one to really appreciate it (CardinalFJ60???...lol)

i ended up buyin $100 H42, and calln it quits. im havin clutch job done on it at same time, so all is well. -other sean

The H42 is the standard tranny that ALL U.S. production Land Cruisers came with. H41's were found on non-U.S. Land Cruisers and come in both 16 and 19 spline versions. I'll be using one on the '67 FJ45LV with a 3 speed transfer case and an overdrive if I can find one.

David, why the H42 which is not too common here in Central America over the H41 which is common?
If there are issues with the H41 I'd like to know before going for the H41 in the FJ45LV. I'll be using a 16 spline H41 with the three speed transfer case behind a 3B with aftermarket turbo.

im pretty sure he was suggesting the H42 because of my "particular" situtaion, ie: USA, 19 spline transfer case, blah, blah.
the H41 would a SWEET setup if it was more available here in USA. -other sean

Sorry. I was mistaken. The H41 should be your choice then, if not the NV4500.
