are you talking about the knuckles or the steering arms on top of the knuckles Truck? Knuckles are the same, arms are different.

Arms have different sized holes too, i have a pair of late model 40 series arms sitting at home if you need them, they suit disk brake conversion.

Hi guys, I've scored some long jumper seats for a 40 series from the wreckers which are in good condition. I've been searching on the net for the seating capacity for these long style jumper seats and can't find any info about them. They definitely look like they can fit 2 people per seat. Would any of you guys know what their seating capacity is?

You note the seats as "Long" but provide no measurements..

They look the same as my FJ40 seats that sit in the rear. They sit 2 legally (Assuming seat belts are provided) per seat. I doubt you could squeeze 3 on if you tried! No sure what the mid bar is for - mine don't have these nor do the rear seats in my 70 series troopy.

They do seat 2. However My 40 came with them too but it was only legal to seat 3 people as per compliance plate. My guess is you would more then likely need to get them engineered to have the seating copacity changed for you car if it doesn't already cover the extra seats.
I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.

Apparently, you cant get the engineering certs if a fibreglass roof is involved, unless a roll cage etc is added. Other than that if the seats are designed for that car then they should be ok to bolt on, if not a simple mounting frame is added using min 25x25x2 millimetre tubing. Seatbelt mounts are even simpler to manufacture, but the killer for me was the roof requirements.

Well, I just bought this yesterday. Has all the rust in the usual locations but otherwise fairly solid. Mostly complete bar the roof and rear drive shaft. 2F engine that is meant to be ok but has a fuel pump problem.

Plans are to get the engine working and the car moving and stopping under it's own steam. then take it out to a mates property and have some fun with it.

It may become a road bearing vehicle but will not be in the near future.
