      The pipe is Stainless steel and the flange is carbon steel and I imagine that's what leads to the eventual cracks. If the pipe is off, I'd find a good welder to fix it, if you don't weld yourself. If it's still on the truck, a muffler shop...

      It's very VERY common for the weld under the down-pipe flange to have a small crack. Warm up the engine and use a telescoping mirror to check the back of the pipe welds for a hairline crack. Also, check to make sure the pipe flange is not...

      Either way, the every-two-year smog check is a giant PITA in Kalif. FWIW, the Calif definition of an 'Historic Vehicle': "... is considered a classic in California if it's at least 25 years old, was manufactured after 1922, and is of historic...

      I will try and check for cracks. I was underneath for a few minutes earlier today. Two nuts came off easily; one of the studs came out (but couldn't get the nut off the stud). I remember now that the threads in the exhaust manifold for the...

      Very important discussion...I had forgotten about Biennial, which I think is a "better" word. At work we schedule maintenance "semiannual" ( twice per year) but also "biannual" (once every two years) I thought, like you said they both mean...

      Thanks. Yes, my smog test is due again, so I'm getting prepared.

      Mine leaks from there about a month after I install a new gasket … every time. For a while I was changing that pretty regularly and then gave up. Maybe pop a new one in before the smog test and run it. At least you know the studs are new and the...

      2mbb replied to the thread FNG.
      If you are moving out of state, why are you worrying about being CA smog legal? an intake manifold leak is par for the course with these truck and not too difficult to repair. It is a straight forward job that isn't really impacted by the truck...

      Both are out of production and unavailable... I tried.

      When you try to turn it over are the plugs installed or removed. You mention in another thread that you have/had a head gasket leak. During this overheat adventure, you could have also further ruptured the head gasket and gotten coolant into...

      I have a systemic exhaust leak that occurs at the junction between the exhaust manifold and the. Two years ago, after my biannual smog check I replaced the gasket in positions 17410B abecause the smog tech commented he could have failed my test...

      some of that is mitgated by using gussets. It's hard to tell but these gussets go across the swing arm at 45deg and angle on the upright from the inside edge at the top to the outside edge at the bottom. This "triangulation" probably stiffens...

      2mbb replied to the thread engine swap questions.
      You can do a lot of repair work to your existing engine for $7K to $13K-ish, especially if you do it yourself. Find out what is wrong with your engine. How did it stop running? Can you turn the engine over by hand? can you do a compression...

      2mbb replied to the thread Stuck pushrod.
      If you tried to start your truck with the rotor 180 degrees off, your truck won't run regardless what the valves are. The rotor should be keyed to the distributor shaft--there is a flat spot on the shaft so the rotor can only be installed on one...

      2mbb replied to the thread Heater floor duct screws.
      I think this is the part. Maybe this picture will help. It is a combination push rivet with a threaded insert. Maybe you need to put something behind the outer ring to lever it away from the duct to squeeze the insert to get it to twist out...

      It's not needed for visual - It doesn't show up on the Smog Tech's computer screen as components they need to verify installed. I've watched and asked.
    • 2mbb
      don't you need it to pass your visual inspection? It is part of the emissions system. So why is it not installed in the cat? Is it a replacement cat without the port? As spike says disconnect the wire, plug the hole in the floor with a solid...

      2mbb replied to the thread Brake Master cylinder Cap.
      The cap was available separately as part number 84460-22010. But that is now discontinued. My google search did reveal something that looks similar...maybe there is another toyota part that will work? Maybe @ToyotaMatt has a solution! Rock...

      when you push the pedal once, is the clutch still disengaging? Do you have a vacuum booster associated with the clutch?

      did you remove spark plugs? Did you get the wires back onto the correct plugs? I replaced my spark plugs this week, and even though the wires are cut to length AND numbered, I still got two switched :confused: Since you are getting "back fire"...

      I have a carrier from 4x4labs right before they switched to the bolt on ones. My truck won't fit into my garage with the swing outs installed, so I have them off most of the time. But I have used them without any problem. Positioning them up...

      I bought the Giro fixture MIPS helmet for now... I may need something more specialized in the future when I know better my riding habits. I haven't been on a bike in 25 years. Wish me luck. Gotta lose 30 lbs.
    • 2mbb
      To me the question is why is it missing in the first place. If your mechanic has a habit of over tightening lug nuts to the point that one of the studs has broken, then it might be time to replace all the studs and nuts and find a new mechanic...

      2mbb replied to the thread Helmet Recommendations.
      I would recommend going to your local bike stores and finding something that is comfortable. The style helmet you need right now might be different from when you will be mountain biking. Depending how much automobile traffic you might...
