isn't that(passanger side) the fresh air intake for the heater/blower? maybe latter 55s get the air from someplace else?slowspeed said:Why does the side grill plate on FJ55s differ. Mine does not look like this. It is solid. Do people just cut the slats in them or did they come from the factory this way?
thats the driver side right? now isn't that where the carb cooling fan takes in air?slowspeed said:here is a solid plate. Mine is a kalifornia model - 1976
Its CA only as far as I know, and mine did not have any shrouding on the bottom, just wide open fan blades.Landpimp said:what the heck is that thing? doesn't look stock.........but maybe it's kalifornia thingy.
Mine on the 78 looks just like a fj40/fj60/62 carb fan.
I am sure it would, it just might not make a noticable differance to you.slowspeed said:I wonder if I slotted my plates and removed the driverside block off plate, that it would decrease the temperature in the engine compartment?
