(out for rebuild in these pix) adapter between the trans a transfer case...

Sweet. My dad has a 76 Fj40 with a bastardized SBC 350 (with some 305 heads), and some crappy ram horn manifolds, and a Carter 650 or 750 four barrel, god only knows what cam. Personally, i think it runs like ****. It used to have a 327 with a decent cam and was a lot better. I'm trying to get him on board to go with a 5.3L. His setup uses the stock yota transfer case and transmission via a Bell housing adapter from [I don't know who]. I'd love to see what it would take. I used to drive the thing to high school, and it always got looks,...and yours looks way better, Nice looking paint job!
For the FJ specific parts (swap mounts, adapters etc), where should I be looking?

We made these, so I don't know about any off the shelf mounts, although some for a CJ series Jeep should work.
If your bellhousing is a GM to Toy adapter type it will work with this, if it is the plate sandwiched between the GM bell housing to Toy trans it is junk....lose it and go another route.
This conversion uses GM to the transfer case, then it adapts back to Toyota.

Why did you keep the EGR? The later truck motors don't have it.

It's just there, not in the loop anymore or connected to the PCM. we are not nearly done tidying things up, just been running since the weekend.

Ours is a GM/toyota cast bellhousing adapter from Advance adapters. Looks like you are using power steering, as are we, but your headers are nice and tight.

I know this is a really old thread, but I am about to finally start on my 1976 FJ40 Landcruiser 5.3 swap. I'm just starting to look up the necessary parts and price it all out now....
