from looking at a 71 FSM, it looks like I have the reservoir tanks for the booster, but no booster or master cylinder....or is it a tandem MC? Anyone who looked at my pictures agree or disagree? I have SOOO much to learn...

above the steering column you have a blank spot and 4 holes to which a booster mounts, the master then mounts to the booster. See SOR diagram...

You could clean up the frame with a wire wheel and paint it with POR, Zero rust, or rust oleum. Stuff like that.

Here's the kit. $499 from Specter. Looks like it is Toyota stuff.

Tim,

Did you get my reply to your PM? Lots of stuff, I know. Dig deep in that pocket.

Now that I see your pics again, I notice you do have the parking brake backing plate & drum on your 3-speed t-case. Get that conversion t-case input gear and the 4-speed tranny and you'll be in business. Depending on what you get engine wise, you can run the clutch fork on either side. You're set up for DS now, but you could get the "later" model hard line and run it on the PS pretty easily.

LOL not if you want to pass CM inspection...

I think Hatfield's idea was pretty good about the t-case, and Wes is right about getting the engine/tranny/transfer first because those are huge and probably will cost the most. If you can't move the truck forward you don't really need brakes anyway

I don't understand the "install the DS" comment either? Driveshafts? Yeah you kinda need those to move forward too, and then you can worry about the brakes so you can stop it from moving...yeah

Thanks guys...yeah, the engine/tran/TC is in the works, but probably will not be available for several weeks, so there is plenty of time to mess around with other stuff...like learning where everything goes on a 40!

If you have the 3-speed case and plan to use it, you won't need the "kit" I posted. It's only if you're planning to use the later split case, like I have on my 81 FJ40. On mine, the parking brake is the two rear drums.

Actually, I think we have approved parking brake systems that involved wheel chocks. A 2x4 is weak though. You'd be better off getting a 4x4 chunk of wood and cutting it to make 4 wedges. The main purpose of the parking brake is to make sure your rig doesn't roll backwards off a cliff when your dog jumps into your rig and knocks the tranny out of gear. :O

yes, Driveshafts. Depending on if you use the stock 3 speed and 3speed xfer, later 4 speed or 4 speed and split case etc. There are a bunch of combinations you can go forth with. This affects Driveshaft length and mixing and matching flanges. Alot of $$ can be dumped into buying flanges and driveshafts, lengthening, etc. Again another reason to get the engine/tranny/xfer before you start on the little things.

The parking brake issue will easily cause me to go slowly insane...mainly because there are 100 different opinions on Mud and I still am not 100% sure on the naming conventions of everything and unfamiliar with everything to start with. I am getting a 4 speed tranny with the split case, and I have a 3 speed tranny already with a tc. I am sure it will make more sense once I get my hands dirty. And as you can see in my pics, I do have bright orange wheel chocks! I did not think that something as simple as a parking brake could run me almost more than I paid for the truck! Thanks again...
