      I think I found my answer, Toyota Variable Valve Timing. VVT-i (gen.III) - https://toyota-club.net/files/faq/16-01-01_faq_vvt_3_eng.htm Apparently the 2uz does have a locking pin in the VVTI, and mine must be properly locked. I saw examples of...

      I'm working on an 05 Tundra DC with the later VVTI engine in it, 155,000 miles. Truck runs excellent, no issues before teardown. Truck is beautifully mint, but unfortunately the original owner never had the timing belt done. I'm getting...

      MoCoNative replied to the thread FJCO +8/80 Rear Brake Adapter install/review.
      A comment on retaining the dash e-brake handle. Any Toyota pickup, Tacoma, T100, and even manual Tundra used a dash mounted handle with the same function as a 40. They all utilize a lever arrangement on the frame rail under the seat area to...

      Realize on any brake master cylinder the reservoir is split in two. The early Toyotas have two separate reservoirs, but the later masters with one reservoir are just providing fluid to the two circuits in the same way. If you look into the...

      MoCoNative replied to the thread Rear axle oil baffle/deflector loose.
      Yes, snap in, a one way type of deal, kind of like body panel plastic snaps, only bigger. On my T100 I recall having to back out one or more of the carrier studs, as they projected into the axle far enough the baffle hit them. I recall the tabs...

      MoCoNative replied to the thread FJ40 Rear Wheel bearing removal.
      FJ60 is also just the hardened raised race on the shaft. Had the shafts out of my 84 FJ60 to change seals, they showed a little wear after 240,000 miles, but none of it is a very tight fit really. They seemed to be fine, so I did not try to...

      MoCoNative replied to the thread Mobil DTE 24 is now $65/gal..
      That would make a difference, there are limits to any system. You hear alot of guys say the stock power steering on a 40 is not any good above a 33 inch or so tire. After tearing down the pumps and going through them on that system, which was a...

      Several years ago I retrofitted power steering to my 40 using an OEM box I rebuilt and an FJ62 pump, I also rebuilt. Based on tools r us knowledge, I skipped the ATF in that new system. I wasn't able to really find ISO 32 fluid, so I just used...

      MoCoNative replied to the thread 100% new brake system 0% pedal.
      I read through all this pretty fast, but I did not see it noted. You did discover that the cylinders you were using both had bleeder ports. Each cylinder is unique, they are left and right sided and they have to be in the right spot front to...

      T100 uses the same steering arrangement as the the IFS pickups and 4runners, traditional steering box, draglink, idler arm and tireods. Steering is centered, then tierods set for toe and centered steering. You can't bring the wheel back to...

      I'm using my best tape measure skills, trying to center toe measurements with laser down centerline of vehicle. Using a Longacre bubble gauge for the caster/camber. The steering is centered now, it was not before last summer. It is not a...

      Its a long story. Yes, ride height is set by tightening or loosening the torsion bar adjuster, the FSM demonstrates measuring from the front outer axle/hub face to the ground and then measuring the front adjusting cam bolt. The difference will...

      I'm trying to dial in my 1996 T100 Extra Cab, yes I know wrong forum, but that one does not get much traffic, and the front end is the same as the minitrucks. I've been fighting alignment issues on this truck for years, about a year ago I...
