Greaseable Anti-inversion Spring Shackle PAIR for Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 e-80
PTO Winches
Maybe some of you have not seen a P.T.O.  Although more prevalent on 3 speed Land Cruisers, they appeared on some 4 speeds, the factory instructions below are from a '76 FJ-40.  They ran off of an extra gear in the transfer case.  Many of you can look under a FJ-40 and see a cover on the side of the transfer case.  This where the gearbox for the PTO should be.  They ran driveshafts up to the front, through the a hole in the front frame crossmember.  These winches had a roller fairlead and alot of cable.  From my understanding, the transfer case is put in neutral and then the winch is controlled from the lever on the front.  The winch capacity is limited to it safety shear pin.  Toyota offered PTO winches on the US versions of the FJ-40, FJ-45, and FJ-55. They used the power of the engine and were pretty strong, I have even heard stories of pulling Cruisers up in trees!
Here is a front view of a PTO winch, This is basically the way it looked from the factory, but this one has a little use under its belt.  Also the hook is missing.
This is the side gear box where allot of the work happens.  Below is where the driveshaft hooks up on the side.
See how close the front steering pin is?  The PTO winch really fills up the area between the front frame horns.
Here is the passenger side view showing the control knob, below is the the hook up to the frame.  I had always wondered what those threaded holes were for.    
    These instructions were sent to me by Todd Richardson, and are from the factory brochure for his 1976 FJ-40
Here are some new pics sent in by David, his is in pretty good shape.
