7 months in.

I've owned the 60 for a little over 7 months now and I still love it. I haven't done much of anything to it yet. I still need to get with Doug to apply to fix to the oil galley plug. If there is one sure way to kill a 2F motor that is it.

It's looking like I might be getting started sooner than later on the lift as I finally figured out who to talk to in HR and I should be getting almost 6k in employee referral money. So if that comes through there is my lockers, gears,…

Today's troubleshooting - Heater Hoses

Now one of the advantages of owning a new rig like the FJC is for a period of time if something breaks it's under warranty and you can just take it to your dealer to have it fixed for free more often that not.

 

WIth a 26 year old truck well your problems are your problems.

 

So over the last couple weeks I've worked on the vacuum lines and have fix most of those still have one valve I need to replace. I've gone through te compression testing with Doug and we are…

Why the rear end felt dead on the 60.

Well one of the issues with the 60 has been that the rear of the truck feels like it has dead shocks. 

 

So I climbed under the 60 yesterday to look for any leaks or other items that might need immediate repair and as I looked back toward the rear shocks I saw some air-lines coming out of them, so I traced them and found the schrader valve which was well hidden and when I pressed on it nadda, nothing, no air. So I pumped a little are in to it and it held thus far no major leaks…

My journey into the world of the 60 series Land Cruisers

Well as most people that know me know that I've picked up a 85 FJ60 and since it's not a FJ Cruiser I'm going to use the blog feature we have here on NorCalFJs.com to be the primary site I'm using to document my build. While ih8mud.com might be a better place since this is a 60 I have almost no personal connections to the folks there except for the folks that are here and there and since I'm not getting rid of the FJC so I'm not abandoning the site. 

 

The main reason for using…

2F baseline

Doug and I got to start the baseline on the 2F today by doing the compression testing. Overall not too bad considering it's a 26 year old engine with 230k on it.  

 

1 -165

2 -160

3 -140

4 -130

5 -165

6 -165

 

The loss of compression in cylinders 3 &4 seems to be common among the 2F engines. We put a few squirts of oil in and the compression  went up to 170 so it was either rings or valves. Once we put the spark plugs…

Hey about those tires......he will have more info monday. He is off work already so has no way to look up price and info but I would imagine price wise to be pretty close, if not identical. When I find out monday I will let you know asap.
