I replaced a radiator on a '94 for a buddy and he bought it on Amazon for about $100 less than a FLAPS. The radiator has worked fine for him, and the fitment was no problem.

Welcome, and nice looking truck, but we need closeups of the Geisha girls, unless the images are inappropriate. I like the color scheme, too.

I haven't had my manifolds apart in many years - good photos and reminders of what's going on inside there. Nice to see that some of the OEM parts are still available.

Nifty floor mats

Anyone ever seen these before? Dated 1984 - ironically, after FJ40s were out of production. Not for sale - just sharing the coolness ;-)

I'd gently steel-wool off the rust (with 0000 steel wool) on chromed or non-painted steel, and apply WD40 to the rusty tools and leave everything else as-is. Very cool find!

Thread resurrection again. The 10w-40 Accel oil bottle at Walmart has been revised again and now says 'Contains at least 1100ppm Zinc'. Still $2.67/quart.

I think my '95 FZJ (tested at 7000' el) with 190K on it, showed 145 as about the max, and a few were lower - 135-ish. This engine did burn some oil and IMO was a bit down on power. It tested the same...
