I have a couple of calls in to friends for replacement parts. The solenoids are still available from Toyota but have to be bought in pairs and the price is over $300!! Ouch. At one time, there was a suitable replacement from a Camry that went for $17 but they have been deleted from Toyota parts books. Between the 3FE list and Mud, no other Toyota solenoids have been found to work. There are a couple of work arounds but I hope we can find an OEM solenoid.
As for the air pump, there is a label on it that says "Do Not Oil" but can we try some pentrating oil to see if it is a simple matter of a little rust forming inside it while it was apart from its system? Toyota's penetrating oil is great stuff as is Kroil.

The smog pump from the 85 FJ60 we're parting out seems to be ok - it's yours if you think it'll work..

Chris, yes either needed part in used form should work just fine but it has been my experience that the very first thing that gets stripped from a 62 is the pair of solenoids in question. They sit on the passenger side firewall and are a mated pair, usually solenoid body is black and the other a clay red. Air pumps are generally much easier to find.

Check your Trails, i think 2 issues ago, the one with the collage of the world travelin' FJ60 on the cover, in the tech section there is a write-up about a different solenoid that works, not the corrola one, not even sure if it's toyota. I'll look when I get home tonight and post up. I seem to remember it only being about a $30 solution. OEM would definitely be preferred for this truck though...

Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner! Kipper gets a gold star for the week for reading his Toyota Trails and remembering the Mark Whatley tech section lessons. The issue is the Jan/Feb and Mark describes in detail his finding that an FJ60 Air Bypass Valve can be made to serve as the transfer case solenoid. New, the part is still over $100 and doesn't fit the 62 bracket perfectly but we might be able to source one locally and it is still available - hopefully! Most likely, we only need one solenoid. Check out Mark's findings in your Trails and good job Kipper.

Sorry, nice thought but I raided the whole solonoid array many moons ago. Unfortunately, these units only lasted a couple months too which pissed me off and I ordered brand new array from Toyota. That was $300ish bucks! Silly me then sold the truck just a few months after that to some freaky looking former Texan. (That same guy tore out the ignition swith a couple months after that then sold the truck to a Kalifornian....but thats a whole differant story! ;) )

I have heard that there is a couple retro fit options form other Toyotas but I don't have time to dig. I also know a guy who used two ARB air locker solonoids with just a tad bit of fabricating but with great success.

I will try and go by there tomorrow. I still need that fuel line too....stopped by Blakes today to grab one and the ones they have are all cut....seems it's too freaking difficult to remove the 17mm banjo bolt on the fuel filter when they pull the engine! Radiator will also be done so I can finish this beast and get it out of here!

What size pistons did you install, Kevin? .060" over calcs out to 4.3 liters. If you went .030" over it's close to 4.2!!
Pictures look good and the t/case shift solenoids are beautiful. If you think the fuel line is stupid expensive from Toyota, you should price out the heater hard lines. Whoa!

i'm talking to chad at four to go on the shocks and jeremy at 4wpw on tires/rims. jeremy is checking price and availability on the rims that were on the original proposal and on the steelies, also on the new mud tires...should know by the end of the week. chad was looking into the part numbers and availability of the shocks.

big horn is supposed to be getting me the tie rod end kit and the front end kit, and wagon masters is bringing me the first aid kit at the state meeting in a couple of weeks. patrol 12 with mile hi said they will get a hi lift, i need to contact them to find out how i can get it delivered/picked up from them

other than that, been working on keeping the vendors lists updated, i sent a disc of updated photos to shawn so he can update the hightrails site and i got john (treasurer for coa4wdci) updated vendor info so he can get the vendors listed as associate members and added to the hightrails mailing list.

i've also sold a couple of the items off the raffle vehicle and have been dealing with getting them boxed up and shipped.

console and grill have sold, cheaply unfortunately, but better than not at all, which the shackles haven;t sold.

I've offered to go along when we deliver the truck to let them take a look at how the exhaust design and routing works best for the 62. Maybe they already know everything. Whatever gets done, don't let them follow the same routing as stock beneath the frame! A two into one cat works really well with 2.5" from there back to the exhaust pipe helps the mighty 3FE sing.

went awesome. the one brake leak was a loose fitting. couldn't find a flare wrench, but i tightened it with a regular box end...should be good enough...didn't want to crank on it much without a flare wrench though.

got the one shackle snugged up, got the new seat foam in (i've got your box o' hog ring stuff, i'll bring it to the meeting), ac parts are in, but we decided to leave the grill off until it gets charged up incase the o rings are bad. the air dryer had crap in it, so may need a new one.

bumper/tire carrier is on and looks great, so are the sliders (i got to be the first one to stand on them :D ). my little trailer is almost empty, so we're close to getting all the parts in. got a bunch of the little things installed also, like glove box, passenger seat, air pump muffler thingamajiggy, new headlights.

tom found another vehicle with the same brown carpet he used on the deck and said it looked like crap, so he changed to black carpeting. he's installing deck/powertank tomorrow at christos. tomorrow night, ken (treeroot sr.) will be picking up the vehicle and he will take it to exhaust pros tomorrow morning. from there, it sounds like john would like to get it to goodyear to do the ac, then, hopefully, we'll know from 4wpw on tires/rims.

either way, it's looking like a real truck

tickets won't be available to the clubs until after the state meeting in a couple of weeks, but there are 5000 tickets that go with the vehicle to all events, so we can sell those to people who see the rig and want to buy tickets....kinda like a back door rule. since many have been around the rig, they easily could ask to buy tickets, so i may have a visiting rig sale of tickets at the meeting wednesday. :D

ac parts are in, but we decided to leave the grill off until it gets charged up incase the o rings are bad. the air dryer had crap in it, so may need a new one.

A new a/c receiver/dryer needs to be considered an absolute necessity before recharging the system. Without a new one, the system will not produce cold air. I don't think they are all that expensive.

I will hit up Jerry at BT tomorrow...shouldn't be a problem.
The guy who was doing the Stainless batt trays isn't anymore mainly because of steel prices vrs the price he can sell the tray for. I will still snoop out the trays....

I will be gone until late Monday so have fun y'all!

The box cover is installed and looks good. I was going to mount the PowerTank too the box but after talking to Cristo we came up with a better way to mount it. I want to mount it in the right rear corner but to do so I will need to adjust the wing of the box. To do this right I would like to have the FJ at my house so I can make sure it fits nice and tight. Also I want to cut a little part of the rear of the wing so we can open the wings on the box without lowering the rear seat.

One more item I thought of doing to the box is adding some end pieces, that will finish it of and look nice and clean. I talked to Ige about this and once the FJ is done from the muffler shop I will pick it up and bring it to my house to finalize the box. Once complete I will take the FJ back to Ige or where ever it needs to be.

Kevin et al,
I was just at Stevinson West getting some small parts, like inner axle tube seals - guess what needs doing before too long - and spoke with Derrick about donating OEM parts towards the raffle truck effort. He was receptive so I asked him for a transmission kickdown cable and an a/c dryer receiver. He said it "Let's take a look, okay, can you think of anything else?" I told him that I knew we would be needing all sorts of little finishing bits and he asked that we maintain a list of items needed and he would be glad to see what he could do to honor our requests. I don't mind being the middle man on this, so if you want to suggest some OEM Toyota parts please let me know and I will keep a list to give to Derrick.

Just heard back from Dave at Susquehanna Motor Sports - rallylights.com - and he has pledged to donate an FJ62 headlight wiring harness that no one else offers to the best of my knowledge. The stock FJ62 headlight wiring configuration sucks badly and drops the voltage 1.5V or more from what the alternator is putting out. This will be a great upgrade to the truck's lighting.
