so... trying to reassemble this FJ60 steering system, i think i must be missing something where the lines connect to the steering gear and pump, the fitting are bottoming out and leaked like crazy.

i've just burned an hour of my life googling this, and i think there should be some sort of crush washer or whatnot for the flare fitting to seat against, yeah?

i can't seam to locate much info about this, not a part number or photo or anything. surely one of you guys have gone and lost these things before...

do ya think i'll have any luck at napa tomorrow, or got a better idea?


at any rate, ya'll should know, now that i've swapped cruiser axles, brakes, steering, and master cylinder into my 'jeep', it drives better than at it every has! :lmao:

I think pictures of what you are working on would help. :wrench:

I'll be running around today at some point (I'm in lafayette). Maybe taking a look at mine would help? I just replaced one of hoses on my 60 with a Napa hose, they had it in stock here in Louisville and was plug and play. (IIRC, NLA from Toyota)

awesome guys, that totally helps and thanks a bunch!! typical... the whole train held up due to a tiny little $3 part.

time to go do the dig through coffee cans fulls of nuts/bolts/stuff and see if i can magically find those pieces, or otherwise locate them somewhere.

if i end up hosed for today, i'm willing to bet i could find some of those up at yoda jim's. i'm also not sure about this... but i think you might need the same things for hookup to regular saginaw stuff. i might just have to bug napa and see what they got, won't hold my breath though.

i gather ya'll were looking for some overall project photos, not specifically the steering stuff. so here's the little mutant:
