And.... power steering pump leaking. I put 4 of them on mine and each was leaking within a month or 2.
Did you buy the OEM Toyota? My 80 had the same problem so I bit the bullet and spent the extra money on the Toyota pump.

You can get the reconditioned Toyota ones, that's about all they make for the 40/60 series.

A new Toyo one is hard as hell to find.

And aftermarket ones rarely fit.

Let's put it this way, the seller is asking the price of a mint, unrestored, spotless, low mileage late 80s 62 for an average, possibly ratted out 60 with obvious needs.

It's perceived value.

They're more likely to rust, the carb engine can be a PITA if not maintained, and their general age and application usually means they've been through the wringer a lot more than 62's.

The 40's have style and the timeless "Land Cruiser" look going for them, the 60's need an assload of work to be deemed more valuable than a newer, cleaner, more reliable, less rusty, and overall sharper truck.

They are a nightmare to restore, too.
