View Full Version : Mechanic Needed For FJ60

11-05-2007, 05:26 PM
I'm looking for a mechanic familiar with the FJ60 who needs some extra work. I have a 1985 FJ 60 which needs some brake work and on which the throttle is sticking. Also want it lowered back to stock height as the previous owner lifted it with a shackle lift. If you know anyone or are interested please email Tim at tchase@gmail.com and we can talk. Thanks!

i got some stock shackles i'll sell you. $20 for all 4/obo

squishy was looking for extra work, you might pm him and see if he's interested.

If Squishy doesn't do 60 brakes, Charley's Garage in Boulder is always a good choice. 303-443-7714.

If your in Denver on/near the southside, there is a place near my old house called Comprehensive Car Care near Evans and Downing. I had them do some work on my old 4Runner, and the always had Cruisers in there. They specialize in older Toyotas and Subarus.

Brakes I might be interested in, but the throttle might be a little beyond me. But if I'm there I'll look at it. Is it drum all around, or disc in front?

Discs, boy. I think '74 was the last year for drums in front on a Cruiser.. :)

Nope, 1975 was the last year for drums in front on an FJ40 in the U.S. That's the reason many people thing 1976-78 are the best three model years (before they changed the tub in '79).

My first Cruiser was a 1975 FJ40. Stoplights required advance planning.

I'm doing a full brake rebuild on my '73 right now, drums all around. When those suckers are adjusted properly it will stop on a dime, I'm telling you! :D Just takes about four days and a 55 gallon drum of patience to get them adjusted right.
