That's part of it

I guess my question is this:
According to my calculator and others such as this one: http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

A stock FJ40 (29" tires) should be turning 4000 rpm at 85 mph. But according to my tach/speedo combination 4000 rpm is only 75 mph. My actual road speed with 31" tires at 4000 rpm should be 90 mph, but if my tach and speedo are reading accurately my actual road speed is probably closer to 80 mph. What gives?

I guess I need to get a GPS...

4k sounds like a lot for the 2F.

FJ60 redline is at 4k right? And Wes did 80 in his '64. And Toyota advertised the FJ40 to be able to cruise at 85 mph all day with 7 grown men inside

Not saying I make a regular occurrence of this kind of driving, but just want to be sure that it's possible.

My '82 2F sounded like it was going to come apart at 3200 rpm.
My rebuilt '84 2F was relatively quiet and quite smooth up to 4200 rpm.

I think your speedometer is misreading at that speed.

Come now soon-to-be PE, 60MPH is how many miles per minute? Bueller, Bueller?

Mile markers, a flat section of highway, a steady foot and the second hand on your watch. Assuming you wind your watch (and let's be honest, who doesn't, right?), you don't even need power or satellites. That is the true Cruiser speedo checking method.

Yes. I inherited that from the PO and haven't been able to justify replacing it considering everything else the 40 really needs...
