    Need creative ideas (capture nut lost)

    those plates are only spot welded in the middle. The top and bottom (retainers) bend back and forth to allow you to remove that capture plate. I would just take it out and drill the hole back out or make a new one. It is just a square piece of steel with two drilled and threaded holes in it.

    1977. Fj40. Rear wheel/ diff. Can roll backwards. Not forwards

    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.

    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.
