Hi all. I've got an FJ40 or FJ60 box with a forward-facing pitman arm waiting to go on Red Alert! It's been sitting in my garage for quite a while.
The hold up has been lack of funds for a TC pump and new hoses. This brings me to my question: is a TC pump absolutely necessary to get good steering performance from an FJ box, or will a stock Track/Kick pump get the job done? I'm running 35's and a front locker BTW.
I know I'll need new hoses at least. If anyone knows the thread size of the FJ box hose ends, please post up. Thanks.

First question: I've used ATF in my power steering boxes for decades with no problems. I recently came across a warning in one of my owner's manuals that says ATF is not recommended for the power steering system. Does anyone know why?
Next question: if I wanted to drain the ATF from my gear box and replace it with power steering fluid, is there a way to do so without unbolting the box from the frame? The only thing I can think of is pulling the pitman arm and prying out the seal, then replacing the seal with a new one. That seems like a lot of trouble if the ATF isn't going to hurt anything.

There should be a sticker under your hood with a hose routing diagram on it.
If yours is missing, or you need more information, try this: http://www.acksfaq.com/Samvacuumlines.htm

Anyone else getting them? I type a reply to a post or private message, hit the "post" button, nothing happens for about a minute, then a "Database Error" message appears.
