I wanted te restart my FJ1200 after it sat in the barn for a couple of years. I renewed the fuel, changed the spark plugs and tried te start. It run, but rough and not on all cylinders. Ans I didn't hear the click of my fuel relay. I want to check my fuel relay, but where can I find it?

Do you guys hperhaps have some pointers ? Yhings that I can check?

Many thanks in advance.


Sounds like you have an 89 or higher year (fuel pump). The years of sitting (with fuel in the carbs) will clog the very small idle jets. The best way (some say the only way) is a proper clean and rebuild of the carbs.
