      I spent the last 2 weeks in Cali as my daughter bought her first house. Everything showed up and looks great. Hope to post pictures this weekend. I feel I’ve the best one could do with the limited space available.

      That HAD to be extremely difficult. I can't imagine coping with that kind of challenge.

      Check the trunnion caps. Something may have come loose.

      The seat floor striker bolts are 10x1.25 mm. Seat belt mounting bolts are the odd-balls, 11mm to make it difficult to use substitute fasteners.

      Aftermarket leather kit added after-the-fact. there were NO manual leather seat trucks from the factory.

      Not from the factory. That's a dealer-added gimmick to obtain additional profit.

      Been in too many 3FEs and I want that time of my life back. I’m obviously an idiot. :beer:

      cruiserdan replied to the thread Will these Land Cruiser rims fit an 86 4runner?.
      They are Cruiser wheels if they have conical steel inserts for tapered lug nuts. If they have square shoulders for mag-type lug nuts with washers they are truck/4Runner wheels.

      Are you sure the wobble caused the crack and not the other way around?

      Check the frame for cracks around the panhard brackets and steering box. My wife's truck had a crack in the frame at the left side panhard bracket. I had that welded up and her problem was solved.

      Good point. In my roughly 20 years in the LC community, there are really only a few very good interpreters of Toyota parts knowledge. Everyone else are just pressing keys and looking at data sheets to figure out what you are talking about...

      cruiserdan replied to the thread 3fe question.
      The crank case is under moderate vacuum via the PCV valve. Removing the oil cap creates a vacuum leak.

      In this case the visiting vehicle will have the necessary paperwork as part of the import process.

      Our litigious society has made manufacturers shy. When TMS USA sells a part it is inferred that part "meets" DOT, EPA and NHTSA requirements. Many non-US parts would not have the pedigree necessary to do that. They do not want the potential...

      Two determining factors: 1. Don’t look at part numbers as finite: for Toyota, they are an entry into its engineering. 2. Front and rear axle housings were pretty much the same width for a very long period of time. So you can determine what...

      Not what I did, but what I didn't do on the 7* today. I didn't fill it up at the pump...couldn't bring myself to see a triple-digit fill-up. I think it's the first time in years that I haven't 'topped off' the tank. Also, since I started...

      Rick & getting pushed around are far from the same sentence - much to his credit IMO. You can ignore his advice, but eventually you’ll find his POV is generally from experience & you end up walking back anything you did radically different than...

      Excellent find! The extension shown on the 17274 must be an embedded metal tube.

      I dug the old gal out and drove her to work. She's gone less than 500 miles on the last two years. I broke 100,000 miles. :)
