    Induction heaters - are they worth it?

    I've had a miniductor for probably close to a decade. It's awesome when you need it. I like the fact that there's no open flame in a greasy engine bay :). Works great on manifold bolts, tie rod sleeves, bleeder screws, etc.

    Anyone ever use readhead steering gear rebuild for a Toyota mini truck PS box rebuild?

    I should update this. I added a seal to the adjuster screw and sent it on it's way. A few days later it blew that seal as well. So I called Redhead and they sent out a return label that day to send it back so they could go back trough it. UPS then lost that box in Charlottesville. Called...

    I'm not a super fan. There's quite a bit that leaves a lot to be desired on the evaporative emissions tie in.

    I'm retracting my endorsement. had one come back puking from the adjustment nut. Pulled it down and there was no seal. Had an upside down nylock to seal!!! Had to buy a 200 rebuild kit to get it running.

    We've used them a bunch for 60 and 80 series boxes with good results.

    Driveshaft shop near Alexandria

    If there's play when twisting the two halves of the slip joint it's getting worn. It's easier to tell on the truck. Shake the driveshaft by grabbing the slip joint. You'll feel the slop.

    How many miles are on the driveshaft? Once they start getting up there the slip joints start to wear out and cause noise. A lot of times it's cheaper to get a new driveshaft from Toyota than it is to replace the u-joints and have a new slip joint welded in.
