    Model identification

    Would someone be kind enough to help me identify this model, I used this Land Cruiser for 6 months back in 2007 in Kenya and I’ve always been intrigued by the model, I’d love to own one again, I remember it having a very large engine. Would it be a J40 or FJ40?

    75 fj40 oil pressure & fuel gauge

    Started up and noticed the two gauges not working. Temp and Amp gauges work. Of course oil and fuel are on the left and the temp and amp are on right side. It is possible that I left the key on. Thoughts on how to fix? Possibly the fuse. The fuse box has one labeled "engine". Thanks.
