Whether you’re in the market for an FJ or working on restoring your Cruiser, knowing the quality of the engine is critical. A compression test is an easy way to see if that Cruiser you’re drooling over is a good deal or a bad deal. It’s a fast way to see if that engine you already have is good to go or in need of a rebuild. Justin Robbins at Red Line Land Cruisers walks you through the necessary steps for performing a compression test on your engine (FJ engine or any engine, really). Justin also talks through whether or not your compression test is a passing or failing grade and breaks down how to tell if your engine needs a rebuild based on the results of your compression test.

V8 Conversions are a very popular service here at Red Line. This customer found this beautiful 77 FJ-40 here in the mountains of Colorado, from the original owner. It has since been the customers mountain exploration cruiser for summer time trips. The original 2F and 4 speed were used for 2 seasons of exploration with the customer and his family. It was then concluded that the 2F provided plenty of of it’s long lasting heritage but with out power and poor fuel economy at high elevation, a 410H.P. LS series 5.7 L was chosen to be the “Green Machines” new heart. With that a 5 speed manual trans and late model FJ-60 “Split” transfer case was mated to the new all aluminum 5.7
Red line converted this new heart transplant with love and care. Other additions included a custom rear fuel tank, and Red Line’s Big brake Kit in the front to slow down this now Power full cruiser. If you see the “Green Machine” in the mountains of Colorado this year, stop and say hi to the Lucky customer and his new family FJ-40
Red Line has acquired a very rare 1959 FJ-25. Its Titled as a 1960 FJ-25. So “Mildred’s” story begins with its Original owner buying this beast for his ranch in Colorado in 1960. It then served his ranch until 1975. It was parked in 1975 outside in the weather, taking a beating from wind, rain, snow, high mountain sun, ice storms, and the heat. We were very curios as to why it was parked in 1975. Upon us toying around with getting her to run for the first time since 1975, we had to clean out the fuel tank, find a rare OEM Big window 1bbl carb, witch we did! We bought all new Toyota wires, plugs, cap, rotor, fuel filter and oil filter. As we have had time we have replaced the oil, un sized the motor, cleaned the OEM green painted DIZZY, resetting the timing, adding zinc oil additive and re-priming the numbers matching motor, we fired it up!
Acorns, mouse droppings and Colorado ranch field debris flew out of the old rusty tail pipe, smoke filled the room in a hurry! With excitement running in my veins I know knew why she was parked…A slight rod knock. That noise filled my ears with the answer I was looking for, with a little disappointment. As I had these two different feelings going threw my blood, I knew I was lucky. Luck that without that rod knock I may not even have had the chance to stumble upon this rare, early 25 Series. Yep, I said I’m happy, happy to even have the chance to slowly restore this old girl to it’s original glory. FJ-25 series are the first land cruisers brought into the USA and are the predecessors to the well known popular 40 Series.
These Pics below are from when we first got her to replacing the carb! More to come as time goes on. I do know that finding this truck might also help other FJ-25 owners with part locations and pieces!. I am also working on a video of us getting her to run! Enjoy
Recently purchased a 1975 Land Cruiser FJ40 out of Alamosa, Colorado and I’m working to restore the Cruiser back to original condition. Looking to sell the 1969 Chevrolet Impala Engine (out of a police cruiser) that’s currently in there. It runs strong, but one cylinder is misfiring. I ran a compression test and seven of the eight cylinders came back at 120. One didn’t register anything and has an unidentified issue. See video for full details. Block number is 770010. The engine has been pulled out and is ready to be loaded onto your truck or trailer. I have a forklift to put it in your truck.
Project Iron Moose is a 1979 FJ55. These 79s are few and far in between. So cutting one apart and putting new components into her is an opportunity to show that Red Line will take great care on this project. Red Line Custom Crafted full custom armor, a 5.3L V8 swap with a matching auto. For lower gears we built a 4:1 Low range Orion. Red Line provided a custom SOA conversion with FJ60 axles for width stability. Our full Big brake kit for the front axle and rear disc brake kit was installed. New gears and ARB air lockers with Chromoly axle shafts Power steering conversion and A/C conversion for keeping cool on hot days. Red Line Resto modded Cruisers are top notch in every category…Period Follow this build with the link below for up to date progress of this rare and beautiful Pig.
“The Dog’s Bollocks” 1977 FJ-40 was crafted with the avid wheeler in mind! The customer wanted his FJ-40 Off Road capable as well as street legal. Red Line devised a 102″ Wheel base set up with Spring over axle. Custom front 69″ WMS toyota axle was built to widen the front to add a ton of stability. For the rear axle we went with a FJ-80 rear axle. Red Line converted the engine bay to hold a Mercedes OM617 diesel engine. We mated this OM617 to a Toyota Landcruiser H42 4 speed transmission then a Advance Adapters Rock box and Factory 4 speed transfer case. On the front axle Red Line utilized -High steer arms and chromo axle shafts ! So we tested “The Dog’s Bollocks” and with our steering and SOA set up we achieved a whopping 42″ worth of flex in front and 35″ in rear! Not bad for Toyota leaf springs! “The Dog’s Bollocks” needed some armor after the custom SOA and drivetrain was installed. This was achieved with our Now Avaiable Red line tube fender Kit and FJ-40 Family roll cage kit. This beautiful one of a kind FJ-40 was seen in 4WTO Magazine in 2010! Below are items and conversions that Red Line performed on this Resto Rock Rod! “The Dog’s Bollocks” 1977 FJ-40
