New to forum and a new to me toya

OK so I am novice at best.
My brother is on this forum too.
He helped me buy a toyo 91 sr5 4runner.
Ifs front and still has springs in back.
The suspension I know what I want to do but
I have a problem with the transmission
Its slipping and I have to be frugal
I don't make much
So should I invest in just fixing the automatic tranny in it
Or would it be ball park price/cost
Better to swap to a stick shift?

Thanks in advance

I personally don't know the exact cost of swapping to a standard in these but I can tell you that it will be a headache. And cost more (more than likely unless you get lucky with some hookups) than just rebuilding or swapping the tranny.

Tranny rebuild between $1500-1800 parts and labor. Lots of runners in the pick your parts just waiting to be stripped. You'll prolly spend $600 for r150 trans, pedals, shifters, console blah blah blah. It's not like your gonna pay labor you cheap bastard

















By the way...I'm his brother

Not sure how it is around ya'll, but in my neck of the woods, a good standard tranny for one of these has a waiting list for it. Along with the motor as well. I have a 94 model hardbody and have looked at getting different parts, it's hard to get anything but repro parts.

Why pay labor when I can watch your kids so you can get your rocks off?
I say even trade...

Especially cuz your kids are spawns of Satan! Hahahahahhaha

I was thinking for sure to hit pick ur part and get the stuff i need but won't be able to get everything at once.
But I need to make sure to know for sure how long my damn tranny is gonna run

Do the trany swap. You won't be happy with that automatic. Look on Craig's list.

I've converted a few to manuals. Pretty easy actually, once you've done one.

You'll need the pedal bracket, the master and slave cylinders, flywheel (with bolts) and clutch, shifter boots, crossmember and transfer mount, and a rear driveshaft.

The O/D light is gonna flash if you don't get a manual computer.

You have to solder the two big wires on the range selector switch together to make it start. Try to get the plugs for the reverse and 4wd light switches from the manuals donor rig to solder to the range selector switch wires to keep everything working like factory.

You gotta cut a hole in the firewall for the master cylinder. You can use the old bracket as a guide, it self centers a holesaw for you. You also have to cut a rather large hole in the floor, but the factory boots should cover it.
