    I would like to have the combined expertise of the Cottonland Cruisers descend upon my non-functional FJ40 and resurrect it. It was running a year ago, and I have been meaning to reinstall my rebuilt(?) master cylinder but haven't a clue as to how to bleed the system and then to safely restart the truck. I also need a game plan for getting my truck restored so any help will be appreciated. Looking forward.

    Way to go Doc! I'm There!

    Now your IH8mud prescription:

    -check this site daily...in between patients...come back & act like you are nervious about what you just read...funny I swear!

    -while at home with the wife run in & check this site often....wife will soon check out you previous web sites & start thinking your looking at porn.

    -Then it will cause you much personal problems & cause your wife to hate the computer....which will allow you to surf IH8Mud more....heehehehehe GOOD PLAN!

    And if all else fails become a Land Cruiser ER doctor so far we could keep you in business!!

    Sounds like a date to me. I know we can have the required hands available for the required help. Remind us because we drink a lot. Oh, will there be beer available? We work for beer!

    Later,

    Hell, I'll pay for the brake work if you will let ME pull Jess' wisdom teeth. I've got some fence pliers that should work nicely!

    Hey, While we're pulling teeth, maybe we can inject some polymer into Tony's lower esophageal sphincter to cure his reflux. Yeah, I said sphincter - just not the one you are all thinking of.

    See ya'll on the 30th. Maybe I'll have my junk fixed by then.

    Do we have directions yet?

    Let's do it the weekend before. I have to be at a wedding in Memphis on the 30th. Youre probably better off without me Doc. As Jeff said, we drink alot. Lash, thanks, but I don't know how I feel about you guys touching my sphincter.

    Looks like the wisdom teeth are history. Does that include the front disk brake conversion I have in mind? Please post preferred beer brands and estimated capacity per wrencher. Also, please have directions to your home on your person in case you become incoherent. I will provide courtesy transportation in the bed of the dually for any inert bodies left after the party. Front lawn service only, explanations to wife and kids not included.

    Directions to my house: From I55, Madison exit, go west on Hwy 463 (away from Madison). Right at 2nd light (Bozeman Road, it would be Highland Colony if you went left, wierd). About 1/4 mile, left on Old Mannsdale Road, then 1st right on Ingleside. It's easy to miss so if you see Parkway Pentecostal Church on your right you missed it, go back. Stay on Ingleside. You will encounter a sharp left turn and shorty thereafter go right on Britton Run. It's 302, security gate, gravel drive. If the gate is closed, open the little red firebox on the right column and the gate will open.

    856-1949 home, 454-2516 cell, 981-8166 office. Cell best bet morning of.

    i'll be there


    I plan on coming out. Question: would my 9 year old son be in the way if I brought him along? He's interested in things mechanical and might be able to assist with handing tools etc.

    Well Doc now has something to smile about, a running cruiser. We had heard for so long about this truck but were all starting to wonder if this fellow just showed up at meetings because he liked our company!
    Things we accomplished:
    -got truck started
    -fixed a fuel leak
    -installed a brake master cycliner & kinda bleed brakes
    -removed dirt dobbers nest
    -removed one LARGE wasp nest!
    To all that came out Thanks for the help.
