    Wanted 70 series grey suspension seats w/bases (California)

    Sent you a pm. I checked shipping from a generic address in Nashville and it's about half the price I got from Canada. So we might be in business.

    Wanted 70 series grey suspension seats w/bases (California)

    Looking for a set of these in decent condition within a reasonable distance. Preferably with the grey cross hatched cloth upholstery. A couple others on here had them in Canada but even using my commercial shipping account the international charges were way too high. Fingers crossed for someone...

    California Title and Registration of Diesels

    I recall that clause being up there for a long time. There's no reason not to call ARB and ask any questions you have. I have bombarded them with calls in the past and they have always been forthcoming and are generally nice people.

    Can you post pictures of the seats if they are still around?

    Alternator pulley destruction

    This doesn't sound ideal in an emergency. Have you heard of anyone installing a kill switch on the IP?

    Alternator pulley destruction

    Thanks, new alternator comes today so I'll just put it together and start it up. Probably just being overly neurotic but feels like there is so much at stake with a healthy non-domestic Toyota diesel. I also went with a new old stock 60amp for a 22r, I think 100 was overkill since there aren't...

    Alternator pulley destruction

    Sounds hilarious, hope he saved it. First time I did that replacement on a w123 a mechanic friend told to keep a phone book handy just in case. So what about the heat? Last unanswered question, and I know it's a difficult one. I have luckily never experienced an overheating issue in any...

    Alternator pulley destruction

    I believe a runaway is caused by an uncontrolled unintentional fuel source getting in the combustion chamber like the vapor from heavy blow by recirculating through the breather. Basically a feedback loop. Blow by vapor might not be accurate though, it’s something along those lines. It’s always...

    That actually sounds like a fun mod to work on. Might go that route. It's not possible for a non-turbo to runaway? I never knew that.

    Alternator pulley destruction

    Thanks, both good ideas. I’ll keep a set of vice grips in the glove box from now on too, In case I don’t have room to stall. Regarding the bearing seizure, that sounds logical to me. I’ll have to check out the alternator again to see if there is evidence of that. Could I fault this to the...

    Alternator pulley destruction

    Had a pretty terrifying breakdown yesterday and curious if anyone has experienced this before. Was driving on the highway when what’s displayed in the image occurred. Started with a loud pop and then dash lights coming on. I was able to shut the engine down by disconnecting the battery, because...

    California Title and Registration of Diesels

    Another thing you should do if you're going to have your vehicle titled and registered to someone else - have them sign the title without a date to release interest and give it to you. Then if for any reason you need to re-claim it or sell it you won't need their co-operation. This will really...

    California Title and Registration of Diesels

    Yes, that would be a good choice. Things to consider are does your dads address exist in a district where smog/inspections would apply to your vehicle i.e. would you pass and would the vehicle need to be present, the registered owner will be responsible for reg renewal, insurance payments so...

    California Title and Registration of Diesels

    I went through the process of bringing an out of state registered grey market vehicle to ca and while there isn’t much documentation this is a helpful reference Registering an NON-USA, out-of-country, or "Grey Market" car in California My other information came from talking to arb itself and...
