    What is this and why is it leaking? 1971 FJ40

    If you pop the top off of it it will be easier to see where the leak is. You might get lucky and it only be the hoses.

    Early 4-Speed FJ40 Parking Brake Drum on Split Transfer Case?

    Fj40 lift

    I wouldn’t do it on a drive on lift unless you have trolley jacks. You are going to be much safer doing it on the ground. I would do it one end at a time and lift it by the bumper in the front and rear cross member on the rear. Some of those old pins are rusted in the bushings and a bear to...

    What happened here?

    I bet that's one scary ride even on pavement. Those shackles on the back must be 12 inches. The front is just plain scary and I bet it is all over the road. Forget putting it in 4WD thats gonna turn out very badly.

    Disc brake conversion question.

    Yes it looks like you are going to need fine spline birfields unless those hubs are course spline. I couldn't tell from the pic.

    You still have the shaft in the locker. You need to take that out completely. Then things will move around for you.

    Differential opinion

    I would guess between 100 and 200 for a good used stock one. Maybe someone here has one for you on the low end. They’re heavy as you know. What are they out of?

    Differential opinion

    Your ring and pinion is toast. The entire thing has to be gone through and Inspected to find what happened. Did you find any pieces of metal in the case or drained lube? What does the pinion look like?
