Default Engine compartment

Overall goal was cleaning/detailing and tyding up wires etc.. also wanted to reinstall the original air cleaner. The truck has a Howell TBI unit and the PO slapped a K&n filter on that looked hokey!
Like others on this site have done, you will see a table of parts that were disassembled, cleaned and reinstalled.

Cool project. My first truck was a FJ62...sold it with about 290k on the clock and still keep in touch with the new owner...think it has about 400k on it now.

Is this the FJ that you brought back from CA with my 71 Impala?

Yes it is. How is the impala going or one of your other 6?

I had a 60, sold it and now more into the 80 series . Iíll probably sell the 40 when Iím done and maybe grab another 60 or 80 or even an older PU.

Default Air cleaner

As mentioned the stock air cleaner was in a box. In order to make it work on the TB I needed to make a custom spacer. Mock up with plastic and blue painters tape, final spacer is metal. Throw on factory decals and presto, engine compartment just about complete

Default Interior time

Because the vehicle is basically rust free and has original floor and sound insulation, my goal was just to clean. I also wanted to install a aftermarket console to serve as a storage for radio and other items. As you all know with vehicles of this age many OEM parts/items are no longer available so finding stuff takes on a life of its own. I was able to find an original rubber floor mat. A little cleaning and some 303, BOOM, looks like new!
