    Had the same problem, broke that little piece into two. The seat has been sitting in the garage for a while now because of it so I'm gonna keep an eye on this thread for answers

    Help - Stuck in Grants Pass, OR with broken FJZ80 (Head Gasket?)

    Engine dies when I switch headlights on?

    So I messed around with it this morning, and realized my DS turn signal was out too. This lead me to beleive it was a pinch of some sort in there.

    1FZ-FE Cylinder Head Questions

    Thanks for the quick responses guys. What do you mean when you say the "lash"? When you're talking about having the head straightened out that means something other than just having the surface that sits on the block corrected right?

    1FZ-FE Cylinder Head Questions

    I know this is long but bear with me... I'm in the middle of a head gasket job on my 1997 and I have a couple questions now that I've pulled the head. It's currently sitting in a machine shop, dipped and clean, awaiting further instruction on where to go from here. 1. Is there a maximum amount...
