    Thumbs up V8 FJ40 Restoration Project | www.4x4MeanMachines.com

    A parallel project which was long awaited and finally comes to its startup point. I was able to get hold of a nice piece during my restro search of 4x4s.
    The reborn of this FJ would be entirely for offroad purpose so we have planned to put all stuff accordingly. Since so many minds are working on this so I expect to have a masterpiece ready in the end & all types of suggestions are welcomed.

    Initially we have planned to take a start from suspension includes, new diffs, 4 wheel disc, front hub locks, front and rear e-lockers, new shackles and some refurbishment to kamanies.
    Then we will move on engine 1UZ with 5 forward gearbox, upper model power steering, brakes, new shafts, double silencers and misc. and then the tire department
    After having test rides paint job, interior and exterior decorations will be started, a wonderful and powerful winch is also anxiously waiting to sit on this FJ first.

    Rest pics will say all… stay tuned!

    Salam Fouad,

    Bundle of thanks for reply. Considering budget for now I am going to use FJ40 existing (H42) 4-speed manual transmission, therefore, I like to know how you mate 1UZ Bellhousing with H151F and how you manage to place Clutch Fork in 1UZ bell-housing. There are two options available:
    1. Manual Fork
    2. Hydrolic Fork

    I will highly appreciate, if you could please send some closeup pic of engine gear coupling.

    Thanking in advance.

    Regards,

    Abdul Rauf.

    V8 power in a stock LC frame...would it not have been better to do a frame off, and check the frame for any imperfections? Plus, take this opportunity to do a sandblast/rustproof/primer/repaint/powdercoat? Just thinking aloud..

    Suzi takes a tight wash before entering my home. Everything was so oily and dusty.

    Few pics after arrival at home. I wanted to take a brake after 5 months of restro. The HOT weather and load shedding is not allowing to do any further restorations at present. Mechanical works are completed now, will start electrical works after paint job.

    There is a pleasure as well in driving a 4X4 even in that half-completed state
    Is that a Oil Cooling Radiator in the front under the grill?
