      landtank replied to the thread Steering knuckle stud failure..
      One of my bigger issues is with thread engagement. The studs that I offer are “cut” and at the max size for tolerance. That means there is some resistance when threading them into the knuckle. That resistance equates to less movement under...

      It’s my opinion that since it seems to be exclusively the passenger side that fails it’s just a situation where a previous design falls short. The studs Toyota uses were first designed for the FJ40 were the steering design was a tie rod that...

      I've had a few stud failures and some backing out. I put these together with a stronger stud and longer shoulder and so far so good. https://landtankproducts.com/products/hd-knuckle-stud-kit

      Just for information. You can get a 10 pack of M6 x16 brass screws shipped for less than 10.00 from eBay.

      My truck sports a FL license plate which carry’s some risk because FL doesn’t have inspections and MA is a lift nazi state. An 80 with a 4” lift isn’t welcome here.

      I use brass screws to hold my license plates on.

      Enough with the wood screws. If you have to go Butcher for Fs sake keep it in the family with a sheet metal screw.

      You showed a picture of the rear u-joint, for the front the zerk needs to be pointing up.

      drop the shaft and extract both broken zerks with an ez-out. They will come out real easy. The slip yoke zerk is 96451-00600, not sure which other one you broke.

      here are the pics for the shaft I made. There is a slight offset to the zerk position as it favors 1 side more than the other. When looking from the opposite end of the shaft it should lean left.

      Your factory fan won’t work with the water pump spacer that it has. And I don’t see the water bypass pipe either

      I have a rear drive shaft that I built from new parts and will post pics of how the zerks should face. Maybe that will help.

      if you rotated the shaft 90* so the zerk was facing down it would be easier. The angle of the shaft would give you more room.

      factory joints are greased with an assembly lube. Basically it holds things in place and inhibits rust. Bearing grease is made from 1 of 2 base stocks which are not compatible with each other. So it is left to the end user to initially grease...

      By far the biggest hurdle is the castings. My approach right now is to build out and test the system with machined parts. Then move forward with acquiring all the smaller pieces and then putting out a group buy with only the remainder castings to...

      Relax guys. I’m as excited as everyone else to get this done. But the environment right now is a struggle

      I’m not sure how a volume purchase might influence this, but the intercooler and heat exchanger alone cost me more than $2000.00. While this kit will address all areas of boosting our trucks it will likely break the banks of some potential...

      About 4 years ago I brought my cruiser to a shop with all the stuff taken off. They only had to prep, mask and paint. $5000.00. Looks ok but has a few sags.

      Yes, but it will be a revised version. No idea on delivery though.

      I’ve addressed those issues with slightly longer wrapped belts and inserted threads into the alternator arm to continue to use the factory bolt and tensioning procedure. I also included additional wiring and fusible link to support the increase...

      Right now I’m thinking that the pump is going to mount under the trans cooler up front. The alternator is just about idle amps. Not sure what the sequoia is but the computer sheets I’ve seen for these alternators shows 80a at idle. Basically...

      Kind of a side project associated with this one. The pump I am using for the intercooler is fused at 20A. So it's probably drawing 15A. Lots of idling time in staop and go traffic and offroading and with a 12v onboard air system coming I felt...
