      2mbb reacted to Britter1's post in the thread fj62 dome light circuit parasitic draw with Like Like.
      Thanks for the suggestion. I checked the fusible link and it was a little loose. After securing it, my dome light, stereo, and door locks are all working great. Appreciate you steering me towards the fusible link!

      The dome light fuse appears to also provide power to the carb cooling fan relay (according to a 1985 wiring diagram supplement). However, the door locks use a separate circuit breaker and fuse from the dome light. They all seem to get power...

      post some pictures from inside the engine bay. If you are desmogged much of the emissions equipment will be removed.

      Mcmaster Carr sells stuff like that. One brand name is "trim-lok". I don't know what brand Mcmaster sells. It looks like OEM has metal surrounded by rubber or plastic.

      2mbb replied to the thread Instrument Cluster Issue.
      I'm pretty sure there is an "on-board" voltage regulator that is not shown in the wiring schematics. I think it provides constant voltage supply for the water temp and fuel gauge. I'm not sure about the oil pressure though. You might do a...

      2mbb replied to the thread Need help with transfer case vent !.
      There is an oil seal between the transmission and transfer case. If this is leaking the oil can move from the transfer case up into the transmission. There is a bypass hose that will connect the two fill ports allowing the over full...

      Oil Pressure and water temperature have different ground. Water temp is grounded at the sender. Oil pressure has grounds at the sender and at the bottom of the left A pillar. Water temperature, FUEL gauge and the high beam light all seem to...

      as OSS mentions check your tire pressure. The higher the pressure the harsher the ride will feel. this may not be the same as "too bouncy", but it's cheap to fiddle around with tire pressure to see if it does effect how the ride feels to you.

      What model of Mickey Thompson tires? And size? A very long time ago I tried the Mickey Thompson mistake - and boy was it a mistake. Those tires had such high rolling resistance that I had to keep them at their max psi (35 psi) which created a...

      I think the OP was referring to the bumpers/fender protectors as those seem both "monster" and "custom".

      good info, and hey, that was a big mud puddle, lol. In all seriousness, I have never changed it and dont know when it was changed before I got the truck so just something I have thought about doing. Using getting stuck as my motivator. What I...

      There is a 1986 maintenance manual in the resources tab (top of the page). As was probably the case in the 1980's there is no recommended replacement interval of these drivetrain lubricants for "normal conditions". However, the "severe...

      I used to have a lever-style hand pump that was made to fit into a 5 gallon bucket. However, I would just stick the pump suction tube in the gallon jug, which was a little bit precarious. More recently started using a pressurized sprayer (made...

      2mbb replied to the thread 1984 running hot.
      I'm not sure where you are located, but in winter the fan clutch may not kick in under normal operation. Mine works when it get above 80 deg ambient temperature, I think. Regarding the AC system, the "manifold" is a manifold gauge which is used...

      2mbb replied to the thread FJ62 Power Window question.
      It seems like you have done some of this testing so far, but test (b) seems straight forward. Apply battery voltage to terminal 1 & 4 and see if the window goes up...If the window doesn't go up, then it's probably something other than the relay.

      2mbb reacted to diesellibrarian's post in the thread FJ62 Power Window question with Like Like.
      Impossible to diagnose from afar, but I would start by getting in there and lubricating the regulator gears and sliders. Also check for obstructions in the channels. If that doesn't help, look at the relay, motor, and/or wiring.

      Thanks for pointing out the existence of the 1991 printing of the 2F engine manual! Was Toyota still making 2F engines in 1991? I did a quick side by side scan and there are some content differences between the new (1991) and old (1980)...The...

      Can you clarify—was your clutch pedal depressed (clutch not engaged) when the engine stalled? I had something like this happen recently and I found my ICS/FCS plug disconnected. One of the tabs that hold the plug sides together is broken and it...

      I left a reply of sorts on your other thread. Another idea would be to hold back some percentage of payment for a specified period of time so you can check for everything once it is delivered.

      Good luck. There used to ba a collection of parts diagrams available on MUD as a resource but I do t know where to find them. Do you have pictures before the work started or know what was installed to begin with? AC, emissions equipment, etc...

      2mbb replied to the thread Gas vent hoses - rear cargo area.
      The device is a vapor separator. It separates any entrained liquid from fuel vapor before capturing the vapor in the charcoal canister. I think for it to work properly any liquid needs to be able to freely drain back into the fuel tank. The...
