I am reviving an old thread here...

I have a '76 FJ40 with a 100% stock setup. I rebuilt the carb last winter and put a brand new OEM fuel pump in last summer.

She runs great, but I was up in Pike National Forest last week and stopped with the kids for about 15 minutes and she vapor locked for about 30 minutes before cooling enough to restart.

I am thinking that the electric fuel pump may be a good idea from what others have told me. Any particular make/model/flow rate/head pressure that you'd recommend?

Also, does higher octane fuel REALLY help?
'76 FJ40
'77 FJ40
'83 HJ47 diesel
'96 FZJ80
'00 UZJ100
