Default Single barrel FJ40 carb

A friend of mine recently aquired a stock '66 FJ40 and I'm in the process of helping get it up and running again. It belonged to his uncle who bought it new in NM back in '67 and it has lived it's whole life in the desert. Pretty solid except for the driver and passenger floors where leaves and water had collected over the past couple of years because it was no longer being driven.

We were going to send the single barrel carb off to Jim C to have it rebuilt, but he's backed up 5 weeks... So, I figure since it's a one barrel I'm probably capable enough to rebuild it myself. I don't think the linkage is correct and the choke and hand throttle cables are broken. I was hoping someone here with an original early carb could take a couple of photos, or let me shoot some reference photos. Also, is there a rebuild kit available for these and does anyone have an early FSM manual I could photocopy some pages from?

Thanks.

I have 10 or so, rebuilt 4 of them so far. The Keyster kits are the only ones I have found. The last time I was out in Cali I stopped by SOR and picked up a few. The carbs are incredibly simple and that is why I like them. DO NOT dip the entire carb to get the glass window off. The asian window is blue on the early ones and the carb dip will strip that off. I can take pics or you can swing by after work today. I also have a collection of early FSM with all the info you need to rebuild them. One thingI have learned is that there is a metering jet that in not included in any of the kits and throughout the years there are two different styles of the large site glass carbs. The kit will only match one of these andI haven't figured out if it is the early style or the later style. Either way the kit will have most of the parts needed but not all.

So, Mike hooked me up with a rebuild kit and lots of info so I dove into the carb and started the rebuild. The site glass is covered in epoxy of some sort, apparently to seal a cracked glass. The epoxy is covering everything including the glass holder and screws. The float chamber looks kind of warped too, which might explain how the glass cracked.

Anyone have a 1 bbl I can scavenge some parts off of? This is from a 66/67 FJ40 and the site glass has the gray Aisan logo.

Thanks.

Thanks Wes, let me know if you have the glass assembly, that would be great. Project is on hold until I can get it running and moving under it's own power.

So I was able to get all the epoxy off the carb body and get the broken site glass out. I'm going to try to straighten the warped float bowl.

Anyone have a spare site glass and holder??

Thanks.

I looked for the extra glass I had. I know it is in the garage somewhere.
