Was it one of Shane's (AATLAS1X) finds? He seems to locate some real keepers out there

Tell me more about that... I am running an All-Pro conversion disk ebrake that works ok but you can't get pads for it, you have to buy a whole new caliper. If I could convert it to stock Toyota... well then. That would be a significant improvement.


Veeeeery clean 40 BTW. Very nice.

It was totally a random find. I bought it, paid for it and then waited 6 weeks for the weather to clear across the Oregon mountain passes before going to get it and then driving it back to Boulder 1459 miles. It got to SLC and heard we were getting 2 feet of snow along the I70 corridor so I bought new tires (el cheapo's) and got to Steamboat and hunkered down for a few days and then drove home. She ran strong! No radio and lots of road noise so I was kind of deaf for a day or two
Very minor interior rust along the headliner area, but nothing a little TLC can't stop. The instrument panel has some slight oxidation occuring inside the glass, but I hear can deal with that, too. Currently no radio, just the stock hole. The motor has been worked on and there's a dual bbl carb. All the polution control stuff has been removed and it has a header. We'll see if that's a problem when I have it inspected next week.

I look forward to bringing her out to an event or the club meeting after you guys get back from CM08.

From the bezel, that would be a 79 or newer FJ40. In 1980, they went to the split t-case and moved the parking brake from behind the t-case to the rear drums.

Normally that disk conversion either for folks who do an H55F conversion on a 79 or older rig, or for folks with a 79 or older rig who don't want to maintain/repair their drum t-case parking brake (probably more of the latter than the former :-). I don't know if that MAF conversion will even work on a 1980 or newer with split case, however I know the earlier drum t-case mounted brake was available to non-USA markets for split cases.

I would contact Man-A-Fre and see if they have the parts you need. If they don't, then see what's wrong with the rear drum parking brake and repair with OEM parts. If it were my rig, I'd do the latter first anyway. And if it were a 1979 that came with the t-case mounted drum, I'd go back to stock.

If you could give the month/year of production on your 40, and post a photo of the parking brake and of inside of the rear drum, we'd be able to help you more precisely.

That will be a major problem if you have no smog pump - no matter what your numbers are you'll flunk the visual.

Ouch. The inspection stuff has me a bit scared. We'll see what happens...

I'll take pics of the brake this weekend.

It's a 1980 that was built in 1979.
