1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 4.2 Inline 6 Engine Rebuild
This cool vintage Toyota FJ40 Cruiser came in for a complete long block engine rebuild with remove and install. Nice, I was able to get cool pics of the actual car. I love these old Cruisers. Check out the rebuild.
Model: Toyota FJ40 4.2L 2F OHV 12V Straight-6.
Remanufactured Engine Agenda: Remove, Inspect, Bore and Hone the Block, Valve Job, Grind Crank and Cam, Engine Kit, Clean, Paint, Assemble, and Install.

Toyota FJ40 4.2 Engine Rebuild Kit
We’re ready to start rebuilding! Got the kit parts in. Piston, Rings, Cam/Main/Rod bearings, Full Gasket Set, and Timing components.
The engine block is done, so we give it another clean, then a coat of paint before we start the Short Block rebuild. The other accessories get painted too, so we have a nice looking engine when we are done.

Let the rebuilding begin. We reconditioned the connecting rods and sized them up. Hung the new pistons. The crank and cam are ready and installed. Put on the Timing components. Cylinder head is done and waiting.
Toyota FJ40 4.2 Engine Long Block Rebuild
It’s all coming together now. We bolted on the cylinder head, push rods, and additional valve train parts. It’s looking really good. Still need remaining parts bolted on, but it’s getting there.
It’s almost ready to install
We’ve put on the Valve cover, manifold, and all external parts and dropped it in. Check it out!
Fitting right in and looking good.

I have a 3.9 F series engine built around 1973, I think. How much for a complete rebuild since it will be out of the truck?
I have a 1971 Toyota FJ40 with the original F engine (not 2F). What do you charge for rebuilding the bottom end?
What would you charge for the full rebuild?
The engine is already out on the truck and all of the accessories are off of the engine.
I recently purchased a 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser from the original owner, who told me the rear main seal needs replacing. I think he also mentioned a main bearing may have spun.
Would you be able to provide me with an estimate on the engine rebuild? The engine is still in the vehicle.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I have a 1971 Toyota FJ40 with the original F engine (not 2F). What do you charge for rebuilding the bottom end? I am also considering a full rebuild since the motor will taken out. What would you charge for the full rebuild. this would also include the removal and installation of the motor as I would provide you the entire truck. The FJ40 is stock (except front disc brakes) and I want to keep it stock or near stock. I did a frame off so the truck is very clean.
