Ha! Not a bad idea. Think a 2F could handle that?

Yep... If I had a 2f I'd certainly be tinkering. It would probably be better to add a FI but it can be done with a thru system and carb.

Wes, anytime you want to tinker on a 2F I've got one in the garage you can tinker with

Hey guys,

The FJ60 and I rolled into Denver yesterday around 6 PM, and she ran perfectly all the way from Dallas. I was impressed...we crossed Raton Pass in New Mexico at about 7,800' and the rig still had plenty of power and did fine. I think this either means that the HAC works well or no major carb adjustment is needed.

And to top it all, it also got 17 MPG on the trip. I still do not understand how that was possible.

See y'all soon.

Carson

Glad you made the trip ok.

If you really are getting 17, I'm jealous. The best I got with my totally stock 60 in fine tune was 16 on the highway.

I know what you mean. First summer we didn't use the AC at all unless it was over 95. Now it goes on sooner but the cool nights lately have been nice.

Congrats Carson!

Guys,

Here's a tidbit of information I wanted to add into this thread regarding high altitude and the stock FJ60 carb.

I just got back today from taking my son camping up towards Argentine Pass. It is VERY cool; we had a blast. The FJ60 did great all the way up to Waldorf Mine, but suddenly SHUT OFF at the treeline (around 12,000') just above it. It did fine all the way up to that point. I wonder if this altitude is where the HAC valve stops compensating? I even rolled back down a hundred feet or so and restarted the engine and took a less steep trail. It did it again, like clockwork, and the same altitude. My guess is that some adjustment is needed if I want to wheel at that altitude.

I ran into Subzali on the trail today; that was very cool!

Anyway, we camped out at about 11,500' and drove back today. Great trip...the new sign looks great, by the way...

Carson
