After two days of wrenching in Ouray, I'VE BEEN DEFEATED! Pretty confident that the 40 needs a new tranny. Anyone have a 4-speed laying around; this is embarrassing!http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/10/ymy9e2yn.jpg

Squishy!

Should we sacrifice a new Rubicon to appease the Toyota gods? :D

Super sorry to hear that, Travis. That really sucks.

Haven't been keeping up with Martin's for sale stuff but if you can find a transmission, I'll bet we could get it to you pretty quickly.

I've got a 4speed I could part with. And it's close :)

You are close & you almost got a call when I broke the motor mount!

I also have a free H42 from an fj60 sitting in my garage if anyone has a way of getting it to you. Corbet's is closer, but let me know what we can do.

I'll take it! No big deal right now, I'll switch it out at home since we're coming to the end of our trip. What's your flavor Martin & cash is fine too

Grab Martin's for free.

Mine is still in my 40 with no real tools to remove it other than man power. But at least the motor is out of the way.

Right on, thanks guys. I think that I may actually need a 40 series tranny. IIRC, the 60 series trannys have a spacer on the rear so that an H55 can be swapped in lieu of.

I think it was somewhere in 85 when the change happened.

I need to open up the box and take a look at it. I honestly don't know if it's an early or late model.

Ok, Robbie stopped by today and looked at the FJ60 Trans. It's a late model with the spacer. He said it had good splines. This is not the ideal candidate to put into a 40 since you'll have to modify the frame cross member to fit it and shorten the rear drive line substantially.

Let me know if you still want it. If so, I need it gone ASAP. THANKS!

I'll grab it just in case someone needs it in the future. Steve had a 40 series tranny that I picked up & shipped with the 40 to Oregon

What t-case are you planning to run behind the 4spd? Keep in mind there are two output versions of the 4 speed, 16 spline and 19 spline.

Travis:

Pretty sure we've got a 40 series 4 speed kicking around the shop in NM.

I can check later this week, if you'd like.

Please do but I think we're covered. I shipped the 40 (& donor tranny from Steve) to dad a few days ago & he's currently looking into the obvious stuff via repair manual.
