For the taco with a lefty....I need a new idler gear, the factory gear was cut down(read lengthwise) to thin it into the lefty case, the cut down bearing journals were not flame hardened and mine spun a bearing to the point of 3\16" depth.
I need a set of front section gears that drive the front axle.
As to the flat towing deal....
Has this excerpt from the faq changed???
Flat Towing a Toyota <-- Must disconnect rear driveline!
Originally Posted by Marlin Crawler
On all auto chain driven and manual gear driven t/cases, if it is towed in two wheel drive, the output shaft will turn, but there will be no way for the oil at the bottom of the case to get to the top where the output shaft is. On the chain driven cases, the input shaft turns the planetary housing which drives the oil pump. Gear driven cases use the input gear and low range gears to throw oil on the inside of the housing that collects the oil via gutters and directs it to the rear of the case by gravity. Both style of cases, must have the input shaft spinning to lube the output shaft, speedo gears, and rear seal of the t/case. The rear driveshaft must be removed.
This one was for the 83 hilux, it's doubled , as it was flat towed with both trans and t cases in neutral.
Does this flat tow pertain to the lefty also as its plumbed backwards?

Hey clb 017,
I set ya a PM regarding the log-in issue.
About flat towing, this has been a strange discussion because even Toyota does not have the correct answer: 1979-83 owner manuals say to leave the transmission in 4th gear and run the t/case in neutral while 1984-88 owner manuals say to do the opposite. (I may have these flipped; It's been a while since I looked this up.)
Nothing changed mechanically that would suggest one is preferred over the other, so Toyota probably switched to the option that results in less wear and tear. So in our opinion either method (trans/tc in 4th/N or trans/tc in N/2WDHI) is acceptable.
As for the Lefty, may I ask why were you trying to reduce the diameter of the idler gear?

Well I was hunting stuff apparently not listed, somehow my log in info was not recognized,
I was asking about flat towing issues the salesman did not know details, ( what needs replacing once you tow out from buck to Wentworth with d line attached) I was not able to get any info on a lefty(I was the guy asking about turning down an idler gear) And I forgot to mention the 8% thingie on a $400 order
I did get logged into the site again but called in the order as it was easier.
Most likely my puters fault???
Still cannot log in.
My order came up short.
Guess I shall go fishing as I can't wrench on the truck, and ya'll are outta the shop...
