      bloc replied to the thread Inside of a 200 Series Transmission.
      There are differences but I did all new steels/frictions/pistons/some other parts in the 6L80 from my 80-series vortec swap and was actually surprised how easily everything came apart and went together. Changing the pistons required a little...

      bloc replied to the thread Unknown sound - KDSS SYSTEM?.
      To rule out KDSS open the shutter valves and repeat your rocking test. Opening those valves (NO MORE THAN 3 TURNS) allows all of the pressure circuits in the system to equalize so the rocking won't actually be putting any force on the bars.

      bloc replied to the thread Sidewall vs volume for dampening.
      I'd add, *at the same tire pressure*. OP isn't asking about them but some tires are offered in non-LT flavors and these can get away with quite low pressures while supporting the same load as those LT's, and this will drastically impact ride...

      Plausible it could also depend on which factory the chassis came out of... would be interesting to dig into that as well.

      Is anyone using speed bleeders? I have them on my DD (which needs more frequent flushes due to fluid chemistry and nature of use) and they are great.. so good I don't bother with transferring fluid in/out of and cleaning my power bleeder which...

      They didn’t pull hard enough. The factory spec is 5-7 clicks with 45# of pulling force on the handle. Mine was carefully adjusted to five, less than a week before the inspection, and a state inspector failed mine as well. I explained the...

      @Taco2Cruiser have you seen any more of this in the shop?

      bloc replied to the thread 2016-2017 vs 2018+ LC200's.
      I agree on data points, and I’d expect that since they are so new. Logically it makes sense to me.. more surface area.

      Cast pan for cooling?

      You may already know this, but if not the posts are tapered and it is entirely possible to have the clamp tight but not actually be tight on the post. For this reason any time I install terminals I spread them open so they slip down as far as...

      I’m not sure I’d want to pressurize a reservoir that wasn’t designed for it, and not sure how our electric pump plus pressure accumulator situation would impact the utility of pressurized bleeding. I do know draining down the accumulator is a...

      bloc replied to the thread 2016-2017 vs 2018+ LC200's.
      Fwiw a high level tech posted here that the later KDSS screws appear to be worse about corrosion than the recessed Allen bolts. The later radiator is a drop-in part, so I wouldn’t let that deter me from buying an earlier rig if it meets your...

      Great video! Another that helps us understand what all of that stuff does:

      Ah yeah, I forgot to specify the above numbers were for a 2016. Did you look up those 2013 numbers or find them on the arms somewhere?

      bloc replied to the thread Another light bar thread. 2015 LC.
      Light output is simply amazing at night.. as you'd expect from a name brand light it all goes where intended. Mounting seems stable, no shaking or anything going over bumps. The one thing I need to do is open up the notch in the trans cooler...

      I completed this a couple months ago and am very happy with it.. thanks for posting. Figured I'd document some details on what I did with the brackets. I went with a Rigid 931314 SR-series pro 30" single-row spot/driving combo light...

      bloc replied to the thread Wiper Blade Striking Window Frame.
      Per toyota the arms have different part numbers so if they were swapped it seems like it should be obvious. And I don't have my truck with me so I can't go look to be sure, but that arm just doesn't seem right.. I agree though, that park position...

      Opening the balance screws on flat ground equalizes the pressure in all three circuits of the KDSS system. If you wonder why there are three, see the thread I’ll link at the end of this post. Putting one of the tires 4-8” in the air then...

      I understand this doesn’t help your frustration currently but most people don’t have these problems.

      Draining rad is easy with the petcock on the driver’s side. I’d consider putting a new radiator hose on it since you’ll have it drained and half opened anyway. The reason those clamps leak is the uneven pressure caused by the extra material added...

      No. That bandaid “fix” improperly loads the hydraulic system and sway bars to counteract a lean caused by something else. Especially inappropriate when in this case the mechanic didn’t even try to follow the recommended procedure for suspension...

      @Noracenumber I double checked the number because I'm aware of the dealer-parts-counter-sightline-wipers-branded-as-toyota scam.. yes some parts are sold at dealers that technically fit but aren't original quality. I personally avoid...

      Pretty sure if you had a crack you'd be losing air, but that's not based on specific knowledge, only vague recollection of pictures I've seen of rock warriors cracked at the inside lip. And, it may have even been related to powder coat curing...
