OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

Before anyone says anything, Yes I did post this on the Cruiser board, but its pretty slow over there.

A buddy has a '69 FJ-40 that he had te unfortunate experience of an oil pump going out on him. so now he's looking for engine parts like Crankshaft, Vlaves, Pistons, etc. I was wondering if any of you knew of a source for these kinds of parts.....

Thanks for anything

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

I just spoke to the local LC guy. He said for the $ it'd take to rebuild that I6, you could finance a SBC crate motor, junkyard the rest, & an adaptor bellhousing, and still come out cheaper!

BTW, '73 Buick Riviera master cylinder [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

Ya, Pegrams doing the work and has a nice Ford 302 sitting in the shop that he wants to toss in there. I'm trying to talk Derrick (the guy w/ the FJ40) into doing that and putting 4-5 in the floor as opposed to that stinking 3 on the tree crap he has now. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] He could do all that cheaper than rebuilding this 6 that's toast. you should see the crank I've seen concrete with smoother surfaces [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]. Anyway, I'm gonna talk to him somemore about a conversion, just trying to help him see the light of cost comparisons. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

Sorry I can't help on the costs of FJ parts, but do know of a cool conversion. When I was a kid, I helped my dad put a Chevy 292 I-6 in an FJ40. It belonged to a gunsmith friend, and we were doing some swappin. Anyhow, we played with this 292 a bit. It had a RV cam, dual exhaust, 4 bbl holley, ported and polished.....sort of a wish list from Clifford . Always thought that it would be a good engine in a jeep too....though I'd rather use a 300 Ford, but they are a bit bigger physically.

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

I have a 71 FJ40 sitting out back that I picked up for parts!! It has the block still but the head has been off for years!!! I don't know if a guy could even get the thing apart and there is no telling what the inside looks like. If you ever need any axle parts let me know. I picked up two cruisers for parts and needless to say I have two fron't and three rear axles.

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

Oh and buy the way!! Have you checked with Downey or Manafre? They deal strickly with the Toyotas. Manafre might be your best source for engine parts. I would strongly recomend swapping in the 350 for the best results. By the time you rebuild the Toy I-6 you would be close to the same price as swapping in a 350!!!

Re: OT: FJ-40 engine parts....

Me and some buddies talked him into a 302 that a friend bought to beef up, but decided not to. So know where onto figuring out what Tranny and T-case to drop behind it. Figured he might as well do it now and ditch the column shifter and 3 speed.

Thanks
