So some of the parts Ben had included an FJ60 p/s pump + bracket, tie rods, pitman arm, and steering column. It looks like I would have to drill and tap my block in order to mount the pump, can anybody confirm that for me? I guess I need to start doing my research...

I think you are correct. I believe it was 78 and later that the blocks came from the factory with the holes tapped for the ps pump bracket.

That would be right. Bag the toyota pump and run a saginaw pump. vendors have brackets for this

I'm using a mini-truck pump and remote reservoir. I got a bracket from Lance to mount the pump. I'm still not totally happy with the way the reservoir mounts on the firewall, but I'll get it worked out.

And just in case you don't know every Land Cruiser vendor by first name the way Chris does, Lance is the owner of Iron Pig Off Road (http://www.ironpigoffroad.com/). :D

Dude...

More than you ever wanted to know about FJ60 PS conversions for your 40 - including running the Toyota PS pump (http://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=84527)

Best thing I ever added was the 60 series box and saginaw pump

Yeah I know, I just didn't have a chance to check that out yet. Good writeup TJ!

I am running the mini-truck set up and love it. Some people will say it can't handle 35's but I am on two years now, no issues. Direct bolt on, one afternoon and finger tip steering! Ahhh.

The 60 pump/setup is a better unit for sure, but the fab work and my rig being a DD didn't mix well.

Hm...that's what I was hearing too. The largest tires this thing will run while I own it is 36s (did I just let the cat out of the bag?), so maybe I'll have to relook at mini truck.
