The split cases from '80 (can't remember the exact year) on put the parking brake on the rear axel at the wheels. Before that the parking brake on cruisers was attached to the back of the xfer case at the driveshaft. So, now you don't have a parking brake. Personally I think if you going with a split case either buy the SOR or man-a-fre kit or find a rear axle from a late 40 to fix it, JMHO. I've never looked into if you can take the outer bake items off the rear of a 60 and add the parking brake at the axle to a 40. Or just forget about it and run a line lock on your brake system.

Always fun to see the wide eyes when the cost of a project FJ40 starts sinking in . I think this is one reason why so many encourage folks to just get the 40 on the road and drive it before going too crazy. That makes sure the "hook" is DEEPLY set before the addiction can wear off

On my '76 I probably had $13K invested into it (not including all the parts I've been selling off) and it wasn't really anywhere near to being complete in my eyes. Take it slow, let that hook sink in deeply, and enjoy the ride!

Not to hijack Timmbuck2's thread, but I think this relates to his build:

When adding a booster and 2 reservoir master cylinder to a '73 FJ40, different brake hard lines will be needed. (I'm doing brakes on my '73 also).

Is there anywhere locally that will custom bend hard lines with the the proper fittings? Thanks.

Good luck with your build Tim. You're welcome to look over my 40 anytime. I have a stock 3 speed and TC mated to a later 2F.

Mine seems to already have a booster and 2 reservoir MC...could it have been added later??

I'm thinking that was not stock on a '73, but maybe someone with more accumulated year-specific 40 trivia can answer.

Are your hard lines already connected from the MC to frame? I would be curious to know if they are a stock part that I can order rather than custom bending lines, which is what I am facing right now...

Well, actually I am missing a booster (but it looks like 1 was there) and the MC is sitting on a shelf. I will see if the hard lines are still there...

That's stock. 7/70- 3/73 and 3/73- 1/75 have a booster and 2 cup master that dumps out between the cups. As far as I can tell they are identical 47210.
