Trying to remember about the 3 fe and a fly wheel. There was something a bit off with that part. But the rest is a good bolt in. I do think one needs to weld in a clutch holder bracket under the dash. I could be wrong about this. But this is a gut feeling.
The 5 speed is nice, driven a couple. Make the FJ62 more like it early cousins. But with fuel injection. i do think you may need to move the cross memeber. Again, it has been a long time since I have been around one. May need to look at your 62 next to a late fj60 to see where the cross member is.
As Marco states, the late 4 speed t-case has a spot for the oiling cup. Also you will need to plug a hole so fluid does not mix between the t-case and the tranny.

Yes, as Martin mentioned I did exactly that to my '88 FJ62 and it was the best mod I ever did. It totally transformed the truck, brought vastly improved performance and throttle response that simply didn't exist previously. It is pretty much bolt-in but I have to add up-front that I paid Hugh at Safari Ltd in Grand Junction to do mine. I'm sure Hugh would be happy to rattle off exactly what's needed as he owns/owned a 62 with the 5-speed himself which IIRC is/was his wife's truck. Coupling a manual to the fuel injection is a match that deserves serious consideration.

I looked through my photos and couldn't come up with anything helpful and no longer own the truck. I did find this pic though, on my way home from CM07 I believe was when my A440F seized in Grand Junction.

What do you have planned Brian? You're asking about SAS on a 4runner, H55 into an FJ62..., you've got me curious
That was a different Brian, who had just relocated to Colorado from Louisiana on the BOWAGWR. I met him in the KS parking lot and convinced him to join us. He was taking his kids camping in South Park.

His 62 was converted to a 350 V-8 with the H-55 by an aircraft mechanic friend of his in Texas. There was an issue with the length or bend of the shifting rod on the T-Case that was preventing him from shifting into low range as a result of the V-8 conversion. He had not wheeled it since the conversion and was not aware of the low range problem.

Other than that issue, it was a very sweet 62!

Bryan here... That was my truck. 3fe/H55f combo. The 4lo would not engage because the shift link was 1/2 Inch too short and I had not tested it...DOH! Anyway got the right sized one at a pic a part.
Anyway, it is nice and fuel mpg went up a tad. I'm having issues now with the clutch not fully releasing- 2nd clutch just put in. Next step I'm thinking is getting rid of master and slave and getting oem instead of aftermarket that I have now.
I'm in Erie and would be happy to let drive/ check mine out. I'm pretty sure I will be at the rs meeting Wednesday too btw

So the 5 speed that I've got is from a friends fj60. He originally got it from Spector & had it mated to his original 4 speed t/c. He kept his t/c when he did his 350 swap but I have an '86 split case that I was planning on using. Where is the "oil cup" located, in the transmission or t/c? If it's in the t/c where can I source one to put into my t/c?

The oiler is in the tranny I believe. On mud in the 60 section in the faqs or something like that in the top section there is a swap write up in if I remember correctly it had some pics of the oiler- its like a little plastic piece. If you don't have it in sure you could one from cruiser Dan at American Toyota.
