Couple things for me:

1: I wouldn't call the star washer "unreliable." That seems a little "theatrical" to me.

2: They ALWAYS line up one tab up and one tab down, but as noted what's really...

Cut the stock column off (removing the rag joint), and connect it up using some hot rod parts (U-joints and shafts).

Is it an FJ-45, or an HJ-45/47?

If it's an FJ-45, then for sure just find a good FJ-40 harness and call it good. There's nothing ahead of the panel line behind the front door that's different.

I very much agree. Far too much for a project.

We've got an '85 4-runner. It's not even close to as much "fun" to drive as the 40s are. I have no idea why the 40s are so incredibly much fun to...

Those don't look like bees to me.

Our bees are fuzzy, and friendly. And would never build a hive in a spot like that behind the bezel.

Those look like Hornets or Wasps to me. Awful, awful...

I made up a harness for the LED lights Dave brought in. These are the big ones--the 16,000 lumen guys. :) These are going onto my 60, but since Dad's 61 has the same bumper (and is already wired)...

Incredible isn't it? That's up there with some of the early wester railroads hauling locomotives disassembled in by horse teams.

You're in Puno?

Awesome. The Uros were pretty cool, and the Yavari was absolutely unexpected to find. One of these days I'll need to get back there.

True. Heck! It just might, but I can't tell from the pics. I don't know how many VX trucks got cable lockers off the top of my head.

I've put two RD153s into Dad's 40--I didn't have the issue you did. But we reused stock gears on both.

This time I'm putting 3.70 gears onto a factory E-Locker housing. So similar, but obviously...

I tore the dash apart to trace down a wiring issue on the HJ-61. Fixed that in 15 minutes, so I decided it was time to open more wiring to add the factory inclinometer and clock to the dash.

The diesel 60s came with the 3B (BJ-60), the 2H (HJ-60) and the 12HT (HJ-61). The 12HT is often referred to as the best diesel Toyota ever made for a reason. It's simply incredible in the 60. I...

While I was flying over yesterday I also was able to spot both campsites we used last fall. They looked snowy still. :)

the faux-lus is in dire need of a rebuild. The engine is not as strong as it used to be, that's for sure. I used to be able to go up Floyd at 55+
