    I need a little motivation

    thanks for the tip on the pilot puller. Also, the idea of using a cherry picker to support from the top sounds great, and U will get to pull the tunnel to do a little rehab on the floor. I once crushed my finger between an engine and trans, so hopefully I can avoid doing that again...

    I need a little motivation

    it is definitely the clutch. It slips when I accelerate. I wish it was the slave since that is easy. Either way I dont think it is too difficult. Just dealing with the million pound transmission transfer combination.

    I need a little motivation

    Well, It has been a while since I posted on the forums here because it has been a while since I have run the cruiser at all. I have a 1975 fj40 that is all stock except for minitruck front outers and a chevy rear disc conversion. In '06 the clutch went and I was at a bit of a hectic stage...

    1 GR-FE engine in an FJ40 need help / ideas!

    Pick and pulls around here seem to only have older foreign vehicles or late model domestics. The foreign bone yards act like what they are selling is made of gold, and they are not u-pull it. I am kind of hoping to get a rolled, salvage vehicle since all the electronics need to go also. I am...

    1 GR-FE engine in an FJ40 need help / ideas!

    I have been toying with this idea for some time (since I bought my 4runner and fell in love with the motor). What I am in need of is a source for an engine, trans, and transfer out of a 2003 - now 4runner. I already have the recipient vehicle. I have been searching, but I have not been able...

    wiper motor separation from linkage

    ok, it is really easy. easier than it seems (if i am not mistaken about your question). Take about a 14 mm open ended wrench. Doesn't have to be 14, just something that will fit around the little ball part. use this like a pry bar. it should just pop apart for you. A little muscle won't...
