View Full Version : friend needs help with 65 FJ40

03-31-2009, 01:42 PM
A buddy picked up a 65 FJ40 and is storing it in my storage garage. It has a chevy straight 6 in it, and turns over but does not catch. I have not had a chance to take a look at it yet, but hope to do so this weekend. Anyone want to come join in the fun? Free beer, pizza, etc etc. :) And free storage if you have any big parts you want to warehouse with me. :thumb:

Hey Tim,

Let me know what time and I may try to make it. I've got the mother-in-law coming to town, but might be able to break away for a bit...

Tim I may have time this weekend as well. Do you know if it is electronic or points ignition system? Talk to you later Art

heading over to work on it today around 5. a great time to check out the garage space I am renting too. :)

yesterday I put some gas in the main tank and some gas down the carb. it would fire up but only when gas was in the carb. looking around underneath there are 2 inline fuel filters but I did not have time to see if gas was getting from the fuel tank. Probably will need to check the lines and filters. Really could use advice and help...and I will have beer. :) Thanks all...
