Default My Toyota Landcruiser FJ40

TBHPians,

I would like to know which is the best Toyota made engines (Indian versions such as DCM Toyota, Qualis, Innova etc.) that can fit into the Toyota FJ40 of? Please consider that the vehicle has got it's original differentials and gearbox with transfer case.

I would like to know which one will fit perfectly without changing the geometry of the FJ40. The way XD3P mates with Classic jeep, I wanted to know the engine for the FJ40 (preferably a diesel plant)

Do let me know what will be normal cost to buy those engines in scarp market if you have idea on the cost front.

Default Congrats on your new acquisition

Hi Siva,

Well i am assuming you will be retaining the gearbox, i have seen a couple of FJ40's with the following engines B12, B13 and B14 i believe they are all different variants of DCM Toyota .. I have seen B14 performing really well with the original gearbox .. other alternative is SCORPIO engine .. i have'nt driven this but i have heard it pretty good.

If you dont mind please share the pictures of this jeep.

Regards,

Fahad

Hey Santhosh I thought you have already married. What are you doing in marrymeDOT.com


Anyway, I posted this picture only because the FJ40 looks clean only in this angle. All other angles gots many rattling rust eaten body. I will start posting my plans and restoration in this same thread after moving it to Vehicles sections.

More details about all the expected wallet damages will be released soon after I do through study of the vehicle.

For now, This is what the data: I could cruise the vehicle above 100kms speed on the highway (drove it from Kachipuram to chennai yesterday), This jeep is equipped with International B275 engine with original Toyota 3speed gearbox (didn't study how are they mated), Front differential housing is present but the crown pinion has been removed and kept safe. Original dash, top with original painting, rear doors, data plates and foot boards are also found. The RC book claims clearly that this is imported vehicle.

If anyone knows the Toyota Part numbers for these items please do let me know also if you can help me finding these I would be grateful to you.

1. Turn signal light assys
2. Tail light assys
3. Door pads, levers and knobs
4. Bonnet top and side clips
5. Steering wheel and column
6. DCM Toyota B14 engine
7. Front axles
8. Front propeller shaft
9. Side view mirror assy
10. Front bumper tow hooks
11. Rubber beadings
12. Floor matts


TMC actually Chennai registration and this one was registered during 1973 and donated to Director, Tamilnadu Health department by WHO(World Health Organisation)

All the papers are current with FC and Green tax upto 2013 and annual tax and insurance are paid regularly.

Mods, please move this thread to Vehicles section with subject change "My Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40"

Exactly the reason why I meant why the 'front only' (Read - Half body portait in shaadiDOTCom) pose. OkOk, no OT discussions here.

How in the world the B275 go 100+? Was it the gearing? Is it even remotely possible?

hi,
congratulation on you possession,i like the FJ40 as well.I just went through your new thread about the FJ,i was just thinking since you would be searching for a new power plant,why dont you hunt for a 2h motor?i have it in my FJ62 and man it has some torque,if you want i can inquire from delhi,i would prefer the 2h over any 4cylinder,but incase you dont get your hands on a 2h motor(which is bolt on your exciting gearbox),i think qualis engine would be the best of the lot to my limited knowledge.

regards

mandeep

Hi Mandeep,

That is a great offer. Let me know if you find one 2h engine and the cost. I have not come to any conclusion about the engine part. However most of the guys given a positive feedback about the DCM Toyota's 13A(or B) model engine.
