Good your's are steel (did you use a magnet? ;-) My FJ was an '85 and
dynojet was a pretty new company back then, guess they learned.
Enjoy the wrenching, it's half the fun!

Mine are steel - suprised they would use alum
Good to know there are 2 shims -
2 shims and the clip probably equals the stock needle head height. Though it
may work with one I'd rather do it the way Dynojet reccomends. If there was
only one I know all the needles would rise with the slide but as you close
the throttle there could be minor delay between the slide and needle.
Probably not enough to notice but I'm anal.
I was on the center groove with one shim under so will also put one above.
Thanks for the input

I think mine are steel. They were pretty heavy. I had to move my clip down
one to get it to run right. They make them like that to allow adjustment
for different mods you have. My exhaust is huge, has no baffle in it, so it
needed to be adjusted. It couldn't transition from the needle jet to the
main jet without one hell of a fight.
