      Pin_Head replied to the thread wiring harness hot... ??.
      For the purposes of the wiring diagram, Toyota considers this a black with yellow stripe power wire. The “pink”wire is just a resistor in the diagram. Don’t be fooled.

      Did you check the EGR and brake booster for air leaks? These are not so easy to check.

      Toyota never officially used a “pink’ wire. Best guess is that it was originally white, which runs from the fusible link at the battery to the amp meter, ignition switch and fusel block and has turned pink with age and heat. If you can tell us...

      It is unlikely to be the MAF or MAP unless someone has messed with them. There are lot of possibilities for air leaks between the MAF and the cylinder like the EGR or the break booster keep looking for air leaks.

      Hesitation or bogging down upon acceleration off idle is an idle fuel issue and there are two causes. The most likely is a manifold vacuum leak, which makes the mixture too lean to fire reliably. If is most likely because there are so many...

      We didn’t get any 80s with manual transmissions, so I was just guessing based on things I have screwed up in the past. Once you get spanked by taking the tranny out again, you don’t forget.

      Is the throw out bearing backward?

      Did you put the clutch disc in backwards?

      Running poorly after warming up is often due to unmetered air in the plenum, like a vacuum leak. Check for disconnected hoses and vacuum leaks at manifold connections first. It could also be a bad air flow meter.

      MIL (Check engine light) on? Misfiring should set a code telling you which cylinder is implicated.

      Define “crappy”. This isn’t enough information to be useful.

      My father in law gave me a HF angle grinder for Christmas about 20 years ago. I was not impressed because I had a Makita angle grinder but 10 years later the Makita wore out its brushes and the spare brushes from the HF fit the Makita! So now...

      The boots that come in aftermarket kits are substandard. Get a Genuine Toyota one.

      I have never heard of a Keester carb, but Keyster makes carb kits for an Aisan 1 barrel carb which originally came on your F.

      Pin_Head replied to the thread How difficult is a 2F rebuild?.
      Rebuilding an engine of any type for the first time can spank you if you are not paying attention to detail. You are going to need a good machine shop, so I would suggest that you have them assemble your short block to save you potential grief...

      Precisely. It is best to have chains on ice.

      Pin_Head replied to the thread Can We Get Real About Aussie Locker for a Minute?.
      Sure, but you need traction to move and you have almost none with both wheels slipping on ice no matter how fast they slip. You need to back off the power until the wheels stop slipping and then see if you can move forward. If not, then back up...

      Pin_Head replied to the thread 1980 FJ40 Smog Pump Rebuild.
      I repaired the pump on my ‘76. The rear Torrington bearing had shucked a needle bearing that got crosswise, seizing the rotor. The nut on the pulley has left hand threads, righty loosely. I had trouble sourcing the bearing and after waiting a...

      Most people would let up on the gas pedal before before that happens.

      It is a thermostatic valve that is the hot idle compensator.

      Pin_Head replied to the thread Cutting the output shaft?.
      It would need to be quite hot to "draw" the hardening. The shaft has two kinds of related hardenings. The first is the tempering of the alloy steel and the second is case hardening. After heating to about 1400F and case hardening, it is then...

      It is the "adapter" you need to buy from Advanced Adapters.

      Brazing works, but I think you would be better off finding another good one I’d you can. Don’t try welding it. It will just crack again unless you weld it under the same conditions that it was cast, where it can cool very slowly.

      Yes, I believe that the primary main jet is smaller than the federal model. I think it is a 124, but it has been a long time since I looked. There may be other minor differences too.
