Looking for a good 2F to rebuild for my '85 FJ60. Let me know of you have something worth using, or if you know of one. Basically need the short block only, I can use everything else from my current engine.

Martin could you use a 2f out of a 78 fj55?

I'm not sure. :hill: I think there are some differences.

Anyone know?

Awesome Mike, what are they out of?

The date code is cast in the block on the manifold side, midway between the last two core plugs.

It is a 5 digit number.
First digit is the year.
Next two digits are the month.
Last two digits are the day of the month.

So your block might have a number like 91217
9= 1979
12= December
17= the 17th

December 4th, 1978
17640

March 10th, 1980
17639

And...
the December, 1978 2F out of my 40:)

Mike, do you know if there are any differences between a later FJ40 block and an FJ60 block? I know the 60 block would need the proper tapped holes for the PS pump brackets, etc, but anything else to consider such as using it with an '85 head, manifolds, waterpump... ?

Thanks dude.

January of '79 has the holes in the block for power steering. This engine came out of an FJ60 I believe.

Any interest in this? I only need the head, sounds like the block may be rebuildable plus it would come with all accessories less the a/c compressor. The guy also stated he would deliver to Denver in the post. Let me know

Good deal. Hopefully Mike has what you need, if not, give me a shout and we'll see if we can work something out.

Thanks,
