Official PBB Toyota FAQ

Thanks to Entropy and 4RnrRick for compiling and maintaining the FAQ. Before Rick Resigned as a Mod he switched to posts to my name. I really have no idea why he decided to do that. The credit goes to Rick & Entropy, not me.

How to to Google to Search .....
Quote:
The search button is sometimes temporarily disabled for everyone but red star () members due to unusually high server loads. So if you DON'T have a red star - buck up the $20/yr or use just use Google Advanced Search. Just put "www.pirate4x4.com" into the domain search field plus what your looking for. So if you want to find info on 7mge motor swaps, just type this into the google search field - "site: pirate4x4.com 7mge motor swap".

And fully expect to get flamed if you ask a question that can be answered in this FAQ! We don't like answering the same question every week, week after week, hence why this FAQ was written, so you better read up if you plan to post questions here.

And for those that like to ask the same old questions, so you don't have to search for them, try these sites.

What everyone needs to know about Longfields by desertoy
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...ght=Longfields
The above list should probably be also applied to any type of aftermarket Birfield / Marfield / Newfield/ Longfield/ Smurfield / WhateverField....

How to change one quickly Camo method
Pull locking hub cap and remove snap ring.
Unbolt seal/felts on back of knuckle.
Unbolt brake caliper and tie out of the way. (can be skipped if you have long brake lines)
Unbolt steering arm. (leave bottom knuckle cap alone)
Pull entire outer knuckle assembly off of axle.
Swap in your parts.
Put it back together.
It's a big-time shortcut since you don't need to mess with the 54mm socket or wheel bearings.

Heres a post showing the slow method - but it "lets" you repack everything...

Brake Lines
Toyota Fittings are 10mm x 1.00 thread with an inverted flare.
ProComp #7210 are Longer than stock Stainless Steel brake lines. (set of three)
One piece 23" long replacement brake line for the front is Napa #38688
[EDIT: This turns out to be a front line from a 90-96 Nissan 300ZX if you wanna get one from somewhere else.]

The flexible rear brake line (goes from the hardline to the rear axle) is commonly used for extending the front and rear brakes lines since it has one male end and one female end. So when these lines are swapped inline with the stock lines, and you will have plenty of room for extra lift and flexy suspensions. The Napa #38256 is the stock length (19" long) rear flexible brake hose. Napa #36881 is 11" long if you need one a bit shorter.

Brake Master Cylinder info
In addition to the Rotor swap, some people like to put bigger MCs in so that they have more fluid movement.
In this case, you want to acquire a Master Cylinder for a V6 truck or 4runner. It should be the 1" Bore. This is pretty much a bolt in replacement. Requiring you to move some brake lines slightly at worst.

Brakes - Rear Disc / Disk Brakes FAQ
/forum/toyota-truck-4runner/281059-rear-disc-brake-faq.html



Brake Rotor Swap – Vented Front

Some folks like to swap out their solid rotors for vented rotors. This is a simple and somewhat inexpensive modification. I did this swap because my brakes were getting very hot and making some very annoying noises. If you can change your brakes you should not have any problem with this swap.

79-80 toyota mini axles -> Rotor bolts onto hub with 6 bolts and the wheel studs are pressed into the hub only. For Land Cruiser vented brake swap you must use 79-80 LC rotors.
81-85 toyota mini axles -> Rotor bolts onto the hub with 2 bolts and the wheel studs are prasses through the hub and is pressed into the rotor. For the Land Cruiser vented rotor swap you must use 81+ LC rotors. Uses Toyota 90942-02053, Dorman #610-264 or Napa 641-3126 wheel studs.

The Landcruiser rotors are wider because they are vented but otherwise fit right on with no other modification besides the need to run a IFS caliper.
The caliper comes in two flavors... one has two larger pistons and two smaller, and another has four pistons that are the same size. The ones with four large pistons would technically give you more braking force. I used the same pads because mine were still fairly new... so you don't need new pads unless yours are low.

Clutch Master by RocKrawler

Clutch Master Cylinder Bleeding Instructions
I had a biatch of a time when I replaced my clutch master trying to get the darn thing bled. No matter how much I bled it, the pedal was still a sponge. After placing a call to a buddy who works at a Toyota wrecking yard, his mechanic gave me this quick tip and it worked perfect the first time, even if you didnt bench bleed it before bolting it up to the firewall:

1.) Adjust the bracket that pins to the clutch pedal so that it has about 1/4" free play
2.) Fill the Clutch Master cyl resevoir ( duh )
3.) Open the bleeder valve at the slave cylinder ( on the bellhousing for newbies, pass side, follow the hydraulic line from the clutch master down, you'll see it ) and without pumping the pedal, just let it drain until the resevoir is about 1/2 empty.
4.) Close the bleeder and fill the resevoir
5.) Have someone pump the clutch 5 times and hold, open the bleeder at the slave & bleed the system, closing the valve before fluid flow stops ( again for newbies )
6.) Repeat step 5 until there is no more air bubbles when you bleed the system.

If you followed the directions, you should have noticable clutch within 3 bleeding cycles, and be done within 6 cycles, whether or not you bench bled the clutch master before installing.

Cone Washers

Cone Washers for Aisin or Asco Locking Hubs - 42323-60010
Cone washers for solid axle steering arms - 42323-60020

Cone washers are the washers that are behind the nuts holding on Toyota wheel hubs and steering arms.
Cone washers are a pain in the a$$. Anyone from the dry areas of the southwest will tell you that a good smack on the stud will loosen them up. If you are in or near the Midwest... forget that.

Using one or all of the following (most likely all) you should be able to get them off.
· Soak it in something like PB Blaster
· Put the nut on the stud and hit the nut with a brass drift and hammer
· Use an air chisel - being careful of studs etc
· Wedge a screwdriver or similar into the small slit of the washer
· Beat the hub housing like a red-headed step child with a hard plastic or rubber mallet. If worst comes to worst (and if you are in the Midwest it probably will) then you can try hitting the hub housing itself with a small sledge hammer. At this point you will want to hit it with one anyway. The trick is not hitting hard enough to damage it.

I (toy4crawlin) have heard to apply "Anti Seize" to cone washers to prevent them from sticking.

This is the same reason 5.71's are very weak, 6 teeth, 5.29's have 7, 4.88's and 4.38's have 8, 4.56's have 9 and 411's have 9, 410's have 10, and 390's have 10

If you have the axle code of your vehicle, it is easy to find out what size differential, what ratio, and what pinion set-up you have. This will also help if you are hunting for a particular unit off another vehicle. The axle code is in the vehicle ID plate under the hood or drivers door. The axle code is 4 digits: a letter followed by 3 numbers.

Example: G292 = 8.0" 4.10 final ratio 2 pinion
Code:
1ST R&P SIZE 2nd/3rd R&P RATIO 4th DIGIT PINION SET-UP 
F = 7.5"        07 = 3.900       2 = 2 pinion 
G = 8.0"        08 = 4.110       3 = 2 pinion LSD
                10 = 4.375       4 = 4 pinion 
                14 = 4.875       5 = 4 pinion LSD
                25 = 4.556
                28 = 4.300
                29 = 4.100
                31 = 3.91
                38 = 3.42
                43 = 3.56
                54 = 3.90
                66 = 3.07 
.

Code:
Ratio Ring/Pinion Color Crawl:Ratio
3.42 ...42/12... Purple ...31:1
3.90 ...39/10... Red... ...36:1 
4.10 ...41/10... Pink.. ...37:1

Doors - Quick Release Hinges / Removable Doors

Info provided by Wheelie_Pete
To get the old factory pin out without a fuss, cut it in half as it sits in the hinge, then take a cold chisel and start tapping around the edge of the top of the pin. (The hinges should be removed from teh vehicle first.) This should start to pry the pin upwards, then, when you clear the swege marks on the pin you can just pull it out. Repeat for the bottom half.
If you manage to cut your hinges and then force out the stock pin without fawking up the brash bushing, then you can use a 5/16 (.3125") dia. x 2" long grip length pin perfectly. The stock door hinge bushings are 8mm (0.315" dia). My passanger's door hinges worked out this way and it works awesome! This works so well I can hardly believe it. The pin is upside down on the top hinge because there isn't enough room to drop it down through the top due to the shape of the door's edge. A sharp eye will notice that the lower bolt head on the door's half of the hinge is ground down. This is so you can clear the pin's shoulder by the bolt. It had to be done to get a straight up shot for the pin. Also when doing it this way you can retain the factory brass bushing which will keep the door tight and have that OEM fell. My driver's door's brass bushings in both hinges cracked when we tried to pull the stock pin so we had to drill them out to 3/8" and use a 3/8" Pin or bolt with the head ground down. This eventually wears on the hinges and Ifinally ended up replacing them with some I could use a 5/16 pin in.

Info provided by NoBrainR
I used spring pins and left the stock bushings in. About 30 seconds to take a door off and 2 minutes to put it back on with no help and perfect alignment each time. Had to grind a little off one bolt head per hinge.

Info provided by TNToy
Here's the route I went. It cost me six dollars. I carry a 12MM ratcheting box wrench ($6 from Sears) in the glove box. Prefect fix on the bolts without rounding them off... a non-ratcheting type tends to twist sideways and round off the bolt slightly with each use. Then you just do what's in the pic. It lets you loosen both bolts 2-3 turns and pull the door right off.

Info provided by JeepRecoveryTeam & Krusty
Just cut the hinge pins and the door simply lifts off !!!!-------- no bolts ,no pins , and no hastle---- 10 seconds off- 15 seconds on ! full doors and a set of .5 doors------on and off 'instantly' !

Driveline - How to make a Square Shaft
/forum/toyota-truck-4runner/90517-square-driveshaft-even-after-doing-search.html




Driveline - Heavy duty DIY Material
A toyota driveshaft end has a machined OD of 2.435".
2.5'' Sch. 40 pipe. is 2.875" OD x .203" thick which is almost 1/4'' wall and is a good fit for the toy yokes. You just have to use an endgrinder or the like to knock the seam down in the pipe. Using the pipe to retube is good for rear shafts or if you have links and don't need all the slip of a square shaft. (also slides on rocks better than square) This is a cheaper alternative to the strange sized 2 7/8" x 7/32" wall DOM tubing which can also be used for a DIY driveline.

The older Toyota fuel injection systems are analog systems based on Bosch L-jetronic.
Around the mid-80's the Toyota TCCS took over, it is a (8031/8051)
microcontroller based digital system using in-chip ROM.
That means there is no separate ROM chip which could easily be
read and replaced for tuning purposes...
Later versions use more powerful microcontrollers.
The TCCS systems use L-jetronic, MAP, hot-wire and vortex
type air flow meters depending on application.

Exhaust Studs
This is fairly basic, but it is info that is helping me out right now. Seems to be a common problem. It took me a long time to find the post.
It's about stripped exhaust studs and a Heli-coil kit that NAPA sells specifically for repairing Toyota heads.

Front Axle Perches – 3/8” Spacer
Toyota front axles need a 3/8 inch spacer on driver side to make the truck sit level since the driver side perch is 3/8” lower than the passenger side perch since its mounted half way up the diff. If you do a spring swap using non-Toyota Specific Springs, this spacer should be added. The most common way to do this is to weld a piece of flat bar to the driver side perch.

Horsepower – More Power

Thanks to DRM for saving this, and Tim for giving the advice.

Originally posted by DRM

"Ok ready, first pull off the efi fuse for a couple of seconds, then reinstall it. Grab some Autolite #65 plugs, and side gap them at .048. Set the valve clearance to .011 cold. Install the factory carbed thermostat {Pappy: it's a 180* vs. 190*). Adjust the AFM 3 teeth rich (under 5000 a.s.l.). Start the motor, let idle till you reach operating temp. Set the timing at 16* "not short circuted," {Pappy: about the same as 8* shorted} then take it for a putt, re check the timing, and enjoy. Leave the airbox alone, for it's not a cause of starvation on a stocker, and don't worry about the muffler for now. If you're going to modify the exhaust, start with a header, and 2.5" headpipe."

A follow-up from later that day:

"... you pull the EFI fuse to start the ECU's regathering of fuel mixture readings, because you are altering them via the AFM. The #65's are a hotter plug, and will in this case create a more efficient burn. You WILL NOT detonate when the timing is set 16* NOT SHORT CIRCUTED, because the end reading when short circuted will be 8* advanced. The afm adjustment enrichens the motor aproximately 3cc. This is necessary due to the timing advance, which requires a proper mixture."

I found the AFM 3 teeth to be too rich for my high desert home (driveway is 5200 ft) and have backed it down to 1 tooth rich.

Idle Drop

"It's an 85 xcab efi. When I hit the brakes my idle drops off 500 rpms or so then recovers, over and over again. It dosen't happen when It's warming up, just when hot."

"I would bet you that your idle is set to high. Sometimes the screw works loose with vibration. If your idle is at like 1100, it's too high. With the engine warm, try lowering the idle at the intake manifold to about 750 or so. That will probably solve your problem. Mine was doing the same thing last week after the new header. Adjusted the idle and it's fine. "

"The EFI computer receives a signal from the brake circuit that tells it that the brakes are being applied. This causes the computer to shut off the injectors if the RPM's are over a certain level and the engine is in "closed loop" as engine power should not be needed if the brakes are being applied.I believe the set point for the injector cut out is 850 to 900 RPM. This is what causes the surging - your idle RPM is too high, when the brakes are applied the injectors are cut out until the RPM's drop below this level. The engine then run's again. This only happens when the engine goes into "closed loop" so this will not happen when the engine is at a higher idle speed warming up. I am willing to bet your idle speed is around 1000 RPM when this happens. To fix this problem, simply adjust your warm idle speed to 750 RPM as per the factory. "

Longfield History & Myths
/forum/toyota-truck-4runner/305715-longfield-history-myths.html




Martack - See 'Birf Stuff' above for more info on this....

The easiest way to find the correct location for a Martack is to put tape on the spines of the axle shaft and insert the axle into the housing while watching the seal location. And keep moving the tape until you found the correct position.
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/attac...postid=1537731

Also note that after tacking the splines you wil have to carefully grind them doen flush so the axle will slip into the spider gears/locker all the way to the tack. Another way is to grease the splines but for me that has never worked as good as using tape. You want to place the tack weld so the axle can not slide into the diff to causing the seal to leak diff fluid into your knuckle. This is also used with aftermarket Birfs so you can remove the outer most clip to add in removal of the axle from the birf n the case of trail breakage.

Another think tha tis important to note is that you SHOULD measure this distance on you axle and not following any one elses dimensions becasue there are too many variables to only use on tack weld location for all set-ups.

The version on the bottom allows the axle to float a bit in the star of the birf and the splines in the diff to tolerances and expansion or contraction due to the change in temperature.

Motor Mount Tech

Heres some great info on how to "bolt" your motor mounts to keep them from getting trashed by the torque produced from a crawler box.
ref: /forum/toyota-truck-4runner/154338-lame-attempt-some-motor-mount-tech.html

The other common way to save the motor mounts is to chain them down.

A common way is shown below:


Heres how 4Crawler (Roger Brown) did his: http://4crawler.cruiserpages.com/4x4...torMount.shtml

As a side note aftermarket poly bushing motor mounts create a LOT of vibration and is seems that about 50% of these people that buy them for a Daily Driver end up removing them and reinstalling stock ones. The motor mounts that I refer too are ones sold by Rockstomper or LC Engineering which look symiliar to this homemade one [Thanks Chrisf]. Now if they are going on a trail only rig, I hear they work awesome.

Aftermarket motor mounts parts numbers by obex26
Well in the process of getting aftermarket motor mounts since the cost is between 25-50 dollars versus 155-180 from the stealership I learned the hard way about part numbers and applications so I thought I would share it with everyone else. Most checker, kragen, pep boys, autozone or whatever is near you will carry an aftermarket brand called anchor. The part number for the 4 cylinder application is 8612 and the 6 cylinder application is 8614. The truck and 4runner for years 84-86 may use the part number for the 6 cylinder application even though it has a 4 cylinder engine in it. I spent two days looking for motor mounts (limited local stock on a weekend) It appears that before the 6 cylinder motor was introduced to the truck line they were already using the motor mounts. It also is a hit and miss with the truck years that the turbo and V6 were available. It seems that the 2WD trucks actually use the part number 8612 and 4WD whether its a 4 cylinder Turbo or V6 use the part number 8614.

Also to add to the above info, First gen and second gen motor mounts are different because the hole spacing on the frame is different along with the shape of the six sided base plate..

Oil Filter by deepstealth

A good oil filter is toyota 90915-YZZD3 (old part number: 90915-20004) it is slightly larger, they use it on tundras, lexus' and and cost about 6 bucks each.

More info provide by deepstealth:
Yeah, theyre gonna discontinue the -20004 and i hear rebadge it and sell for ten bucks as the "TRD" uber special filter. not worth it, for that money you can get an sdf-15 from amsoil, which is even better but expensive overkill for most rigs. the yzzd3 is NOT a high quality filter--take one apart & compare to the -20004, the difference is pretty obvious--it's pretty much just a basic cheap-o filter, but twice as much as a fram. the -20004s can still be purchased (in cases), and you'll usually get a bulk discount.

Springs!
********************************

44044 SPRINGS
44044s are Rancho Jeep Wagoneer Lift Springs.
Length: 47" (Length is eye to eye)
Center Pin split (front/rear) 22.5"/24.5"
Bushing: 2 3/4" & 3"
Lift: 5.25 - 5.5" (Lift is approximate and uses 1.5" longer than stock shackles giving 3/4" of lift)
Cost: $250 (Cost is for both sides incl. shipping/give or take)
44044's do not (by themselves) move your axle forward. They are the same length on the front half as stock toys (22.5"). While they do move the axle forward because of the lift they provide (arch in spring), when they compress to the point that they are flat, it's the same. Estimated 1/2" of actual axle relocation forward.

If you actually have a question that is not answered there, that would be a great place to ask it so the answer is there for everyone else.

REARS SPRINGS UP FRONT Probably most common front lift springs!
Rears Up Front (RUF) FAQ: /forum/toyota-truck-4runner/265669-rear-up-front-faq.html
Stock toy rears move the axle forward 2" because they are only 20.5" on the front half where as a stock toyota front spring is 22.5". But you have to add a few leaves to the pack to make them stiff enough to hold up the front of the truck.

For Rear Spring dimensions see:

********************************

WAGONEER / WAGGY SPRINGS
These are stock Jeep Wagoneer Springs
Length: 47" (Length is eye to eye)
Bushing: 3"
Lift: 3.5 - 3.75"
Cost: $200 New, $60-$100 Used
From JcWhitney.com:
1976 - 1992 Jeep Wagoneer, Front Leaf Spring
7 Heavy-duty Leaves #07ZX2048P $99.95 Ea
5 Leaves #07ZX2047B $84.95 Ea
The 7 leaf is supposed to be the ones you are looking for.
Pinion angle can be an issue if you just bolt waggs to the stock location. If you have dropped hanger or dual cases the problem is lessened.

Thermostat Problem

Question: “Why does my engine temp go all the way up to the red before it comes back down to the middle of the gauge after I start it up in the morning. It only does this when the engine is cold and once it warms up it seems to operate normally. Could it be as simple as a stuck thermostat?”

Answer: (From Roger Brown’s Web Site - http://4crawler.cruiserpages.com/4x4...tml#Thermostat)

“What happens on the 22R and 22RE engine, when the coolant goes through the heater core it gets cooled off enough that when it gets dumped back in on top of the t-stat it shuts it. Therefore the temperature in the engine continues to go up. The t-stat that I have mentioned has two valves in it, one at the regular temp. and one smaller on at a cooler temp. If the cool water shuts the big one, the smaller one stays open. All this happens because of the lack of a by-pass hose, which on other systems, keeps hot coolant running on the t-stat.”

You can get the two-stage thermostat mentioned above from your local Toyota Dealer.

G58 5 speed 89 - 95 3.93 ADD Equipped Vehicles
R150F (6 cyl) 5 speed 88+ 3.83

Identification:
G52/54 84-88' are twin stick, use a 8 bolt center section, 6 bolt gear t/case pattern, 21 spline output.
G58 89-95' twin stick, 8 bolt center, 9 bolt chain t/case, 26 spline
W56 85-88' (single stick), 89-95' (twin stick), 10 bolt center, 6 bolt t/case, 21 spline
R151F 86 - 87 (turbo only) will have two housings of four bolts each just like a G52, the difference would be the large rubber plug on the bottom of the bellhousing.

Info provided by Marlin Cralwer
All 84 to 95 22R trans are 25.5" long including the bellhousing. The only shorter trans is the 79-83 year trans which are 20.75" long with bellhousing. These early short trans have had a poor service record due in part to their small bearings and lighter gears. The 82-83 L52 5 speed which had a 80 x 20 mm front input bearing has had the best service record. A number of years ago, I invented a way to install a oversize 80 x 23 mm input bearing with an inproved gear set which features a greater helix angle for added strenght. I call it my L52HD and is the strongest 20.75" long trans.

TOP vs FORWARD SHIFT TRANSFER CASE by Chris Gieger
What is the difference between a top shift and forward shift transfer case. I took a couple of photos showing both top and forward shifting tcases along with matching transmissions. These two photos should make it easier to understand the difference. In both photos the transmission and transfer case have been seprated to show where one ends and the other starts. It also helps show the shift forks on the forward shift setup.

The first photo shows a top shifting transfer case and transmission. Notice the tcase shifter comes out of the top of the tcase. The transmission has just one shifter. Notice there are no forks on the front of the tcase.


The second photo is a forward shift transfer case. Notice the blockoff plate on top of the case. This unit is shifted through two rails that connect to the transmission. A forward shift transmission like this one has two shifters, one for the tranny and one for the tcase.

The transfercase/reduction box shift rods on the forward shifting transfercase are different lengths so swapping trannys can cause a problem. Ref:http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...hreadid=222758
The G52/G54 trans requires the longer forward type t/case shifting rods. These are only found on 84-88' G carb t/cases, and 86-87' R151F efi turbo t/cases. The 89-95' twin stick W56 with a forward shifting t/case that uses rods that are about 1/2 inch shorter. These shift rods can be easily swapped in the reduction boxes so it just a matter of getting the correct remote shift rod for the tranny. www.MarlinCrawler.com usually has a bunch of both kinds in stock and they can also convert a forward shifting reduction box into a top shifting case for a small cost.

Weber Info by Coop 50

I live at sea level (hence the name Shoreline) so I can't do much for you, but I believe the people in some of those posts (in the searches) live at high elevation. Perhaps if you contact them by email, they can help you. The other option is to get some small jets and take it from there with a drill set. This is the economical way to do it. I bought a jet kit which also had a double squirt pump jet for more fuel on that initial step on the accelerator.

What I have read concerning Weber jet adjustment (this is in the search posts), note the original idle jet size, in your case you decrease the size until the mixture screw is optimum at 2 - 3 turns from bottoming out. Whatever size the idle jet turns out to be, you extrapolate what the others should be according to that, because you are setting the jets according to the volume of your engine.

I have a 32/36, my primary is set pretty good but my secondary is a little rich. I can tell because I have an analog Westach mixture meter hooked up to a heated O2 sensor. If I remember right 13.5 to 1 is optimum for power, 14.7 to one is optimum for clean burning. Another thing I found out is my 86 22R engine naturally runs lean above 3000 rpm (until the secondary kicks in), has something to do with the swirl or flow of the combustion chamber.

Wheel Bearing Adjustment By SR5Dave

A good way (at least IMO) to tighten wheel bearings; which allows at least moderately proper preload even with large tires or different offset rims.

Torque down real tight. Spin wheel once to get everything set. Now back it off. Tighten a little, grab at 12 and 6 and wiggle back and forth. Does it wiggle? Tighten more. Wiggle again. Does it wiggle? Tighten more. Do this until there is basically NO play (Except some from the tires moving back and forth), should be real firm. Now spin the wheel, does it spin at least 1.5 revolutions easily? Good to go.

Doesn't? Go buy new bearings ya cheap bastard, they're wasted If you can't buy new ones; just find the best point on the curve between little wiggle and enough spin. Make sure one doesn't spin way easier than the other or the freeway will be real interesting.

This is a good way to do it because you adjust them tighter with bigger tires naturally. Its not perfect, but since Toyota didn't suply us with preload if you put 38" tires and 2"BS rims on.. its 'good enough' IMO. This method gets preload firmer with bigger tires because of a 20" leverage arm on 40" tires instead of 15" lever arm w/ 30"s, further out, easier it is to move the tire, so you tighten it more for less play. Works out pretty good.

{Comment by 4RnrRick - I feel it should be done using the method in the FSM or Haynes with a pull scale and the adjusted from there for more preload for bigger tires. I'm not sure how much more other than it probably requires more preload to increase bearing life. IMO 'By Feel" is not the best method since everyone does not have the same hands....}

Gearing calculator.

For anybody that wants to see how many RPM's their turning with a given transmission/transfer case/axle ratio/tires, here's a great calculator. I made my own a few years ago, but this one is much nicer.

HiLift Safety Tip: Use a limit strap or chain

Here is a tip anyone with a hi-lift jack should be aware of. Always carry a strap or chain with you. Why? You can use it to limit the droop of the suspension when changing tires/axles/etc.

How many times have you seen a vehicle lifted near the maximum height of the jack just to get the tire off the ground? This is incredibly dangerous! It puts the vehicle in an unstable position and people around/under the vehicle at uneccessary risk.

To avoid hurting someone, attach a chain or strap between the axle and frame to limit droop. You can do this while the vehicle is still on all four tires. As you jack from the body or frame, the axle will droop until the limit chain/strap tightens.

Be aware of brake lines and other vulnerable components when routing your limit strap/chain. Also, make sure whatever chain/strap you carry on the trail is adjustable in case the suspension is articulated before jacking.

Front Hard Brake Line Mount

I though I posted this up years ago, but Roc Doc that I should put this up.

I do not run the backing plates on my front end, which causes a problem as to how to mount the hard line. When I cut the center section off the backing plate for a spacer I also cut the hard line mount off with a long section still attached. Smoothed it out and drilled a hole in the bottom of it. It is held in place by the top caliper bolt. This enables you to pull the caliper off without taking the brake line loose. That way you do not have to bleed the brakes on reassembly.

I think some seat tech would be a valuable addition, maybe just a cheat sheet of seats that fit or are close. Lots of info in these threads that I used for my seat swap.

A tip for the faq, when putting the knuckle wiper seals together, use a couple dabs of rtv to stick the rubber to the metal ring, makes them a ton easier to put together.

Rick,
I think you might want to put this link in here somewhere for replacing the rear inner seal. I went to the link on faqs and it told me to go somewhere else so might as well just skip a step.

The good link
http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/mainte...wheel_bearing/

Not as good link
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=583794

And thanks for doing the work, a lot of people really appreciate it.

Didn't see this in the thread. Albeit for a Jeep it's pretty useful. Factory service manual for York compressor included.

The link for the motor mount tech from 4crawler redirects to a crappy site.
Here's the wayback machine's link. http://web.archive.org/web/200312100...torMount.shtml

If you get a dead link go to http://www.archive.org/index.php and type in the complete url. They maintain revision history of a lot of the net.

Dont know if any one cares,
Stock power steering high pressure hose PN's:

VATO Zone: 71260 $25.99

Front Axle Perches – 3/8” Spacer
Toyota front axles need a 3/8 inch spacer on driver side to make the truck sit level since the driver side perch is 3/8” lower than the passenger side perch since its mounted half way up the diff. If you do a spring swap using non-Toyota Specific Springs, this spacer should be added. The most common way to do this is to weld a piece of flat bar to the driver side perch.
