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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk. Thanks!

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.
