      Three hoses? Don't you mean two? One on the passenger side from the bottom of the T to the firewall hard pipe. One on the driver's side off that funky hard pipe to the firewall hard pipe I've been meaning to piece mine back together and...

      jht3 replied to the thread Sourcing window regulators.
      i find it hard to determine how many parts to throw at the windows, and if its even worth it, just to speed up the windows. some have said spraying lube on everything is all it took some have said cleaning or replacing the switches is all it...

      i've spent some more time planning this out and have some questions i hope you can answer based on experience 1) the Blue Sea panel is rated for 100A and the relay you use is rated for 125A. what AWG wire do you prefer to run from the battery to...

      jht3 replied to the thread Coolant Leak at the Back of the Engine.
      damn. you sure are in good spirits considering do you run pure water or coolant/antifreeze? i'm shocked that w/ a nearly empty system there would be enough pressure to blow that out.

      So I just wanted to drop this here, the corrected coolant flow diagram
    • jht3
      now that i'm not on mobile, maybe its my eyes but in your picture below, it looks like lots of old dried up coolant around the radiator cap. and that would definitely pool up on the ground like yours did. if you are certain your cap is sealing...

      maybe he has updated it since the one i linked to. i dunno. i found this one in a post of his. a mis-adjusted heater valve is a common complaint about always warm air. in the engine bay, disconnect the heater cable and manually shut the valve...
    • jht3
      maybe? the rear heater lines are at the firewall and fairly high up. so as the system leaks down, it could drop below the level of the leaky hoses and lessen the coolant loss. when my radiator had a hairline crack in the top tank cap a similar...
    • jht3
      if the rubber hoses connecting the rear heater hardlines at the firewall are weeping or leaking, i don't see how you'd have that coolant puddle at the front of the truck. and dripping off the frame crossmember not saying you don't have a leak...

      jht3 replied to the thread Accessory Fuse Block.
      are you saying that in your experience you'd go with a Switch Pros every time over a fuse panel like a Blue Sea 5032? i see the advantages of a SP for when switching of the loads is actually required. but not all loads need to be switchable or...

      To terminate the wires in the plug I did buy male terminals. I got them here: https://www.corsa-technic.com/item.php?item_id=1064 Part Number: 090IIU-PIN2 Pin/Wire size: .5-1.25 mm² | 20-16 AWG I used the barrel connectors you see in the...
    • jht3
      @Somebodyelse5 did you buy male terminals for the empty pin postions from the dealer, or somewhere else? i found some dead links to non-toyota parts on Amazon but can't find anything similar. i see butt connectors in that pic but i'm assuming you...

      so much hate further justifies my "splurging" on new OE calipers all around. i didn't use to value it, but now my time is better spent doing the job once with the best parts i can obtain. on an old BMW, i once had to install THREE new in the...

      while i'm not "new" here based on my join date, or at geezer stage yet, i am new to the 80 platform. i research my topic of interest heavily before asking a question, usually replying to an existing thread to keep all responses together. its true...

      jht3 replied to the thread Ham antenna suggestions.
      turns out I have a Ham Radio Outlet nearby, which stocks pre-made RG316 extension cables terminated in SMA-M and SMA-F. i went with the 9' length. the other options were 6' or 12'. and they had everything else I need too; K400 mount, antenna's...

      In this case, a picture is worth a thousand words. The second wire you see is my Sirius/XM antenna. It follows the same path.

      what torque spec are you using for the banjo bolt? just went down this road myself over christmas. i just put new Toyota calipers on all four corners. with new banjo bolts and mounting bolts. no issues other than a lighter wallet. already had...

      @jonheld i'm surprised 13.5 only gets to the B pillar but i guess mentally i wasn't accounting for the hatch and all the bends. this is why boards like this are great! thanks for the links...you found results i didn't...especially the custom...

      jht3 replied to the thread Ham antenna suggestions.
      @jonheld i'm cobbling together parts to do almost exactly what you have, and do you really need another 8-10' of coax? i believe you ran down the drivers side under the carpet, crossing over in the footwell. where did the 13.5' run out? right...

      Just the 4 feet bolts The fair lead bolted right up? What is the application for? Where did you get it from?

      definitely keep this updated when you get the other fairlead

      jht3 replied to the thread ARB bullbar/Warn M12 install issue.
      well dang. mine came w/ a M8000 in ~2005. never fit it to an ARB bumper of any type, so who knows. this sure is frustrating.
    • jht3
      Well crap. Sourced a light retainer relay and absolutely no change in behavior. With the door closed, the lights immediately shut off with the ignition. So I guess it is either the headlight switch, which otherwise is working fine, or something...

      jht3 replied to the thread ARB bullbar/Warn M12 install issue.
      i have the same problem. Recent ARB bumper (within 2 years I'd guess) and old Warn XD9000i winch. pretty sure the fairlead is a newer Warn unit as it is stamped "12K" and has a warning sticker w/ a Warn part number. it has a black frame with two...
