Not really. I did coat the skirts of the pistons with a dry film lubricant and the tops with a thermal coating. And the distributor was replaced with a missing tooth wheel on the crank and Ford EDIS...

Anyone have one of this wiper linkage parts?

FJ40 w/4 wheel disc brake, which booster?

Folks - I converted my FJ40 to 4 wheel disc (non-OEM conversion) and now find my pedal to be too hard for my liking. Doing some research, it looks like disc brake line pressure needs to be higher for...

If you are injecting air into the head at the exhaust runners, you must be running way too rich to compensate in the ECU based on bad O2 sensor data (extra O2 added post combustion).

Anyone know how to disassemble a door lock?
