Transmission Rebuilds & Replacements
It’s not uncommon for classic Toyota Land Cruiser or Pickup transmissions to need maintenance after 30-50 years of wear and tear. We’ve worked on many Toyota transmissions over the years, including 3-Speed, 4-Speed, & 5-Speed models. Gears, Gaskets, Seals, & Fluids are all common replacement items that we see come into the shop.
Carburetor Rebuilding & Servicing
Carburetors can be found on the majority of vintage Toyota vehicles, and as a result, we’ve worked on restoring many to working order. We can help rebuild your original carb, assessing and servicing common components such as your jets, pumps, and chambers to ensure the right fuel ratio for your engine. We can also help source replacement carburetors should you need this service.

Cooling System Maintenance
Cooling system failures lead to overheating, which can ultimately lead to more expensive and costly repairs down the road.

Wiring Repair & Replacement
Assessing a wiring issue, or even trying to replace a harness can be a daunting task for anyone. That being said, our team works with classic Toyota FJ Series & Pickup harnesses all the time. This allows us to diagnose any issue quickly and make sure it is addressed. We can even help build you an entirely new harness from scratch if that’s what you’re looking for!
Drivetrain & Axle Overhauls
Besides your engine, the remainder of your drivetrain plays an important role in getting the appropriate power to the ground in a way that is best suited for your intended application.
