      What does your oil cap say on it? I use QS 5W30 Dino oil. I DD 15K-20K miles per year. I use Goodyear Duratrac tires in 285/75-16 I use Toyota red coolant (not the generic green) I always fill up with 89 octane E-10 unless 87 octane no-ethanol...

      this might be a win for the 93-94 as they have a stand-alone transmission computer.

      there is no way the fluid level is going up. It's likely being miss-measured, was probably overfilled and there is a leak. These transmissions really don't like being overfilled, it can cause foaming, increased and inconsistent line pressure...

      One other consideration- the transfer case should have gear oil in it, it does not use transmission fluid, so if your transmission fluid is bright red and doesn't look contaminated, it's not rising due to a leak between the transmission and...

      Easy bro, I meant no offense. If you go back and read my first sentence I clearly stated that I skipped to the end and didn't read anything other than the 'hey it's my first post here and I have an 80!' original post. I was just welcoming him...

      what. nothing I wrote was meant to be condescending, this is a 'hi I'm new here' thread. I think I know you enough to assume that you think people should be consulting the FSM and trying to do some basic troubleshooting before posting RTH...

      Welcome, I didn't read everything to this point because you need to know about the TOYOTA FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL. This year I updated the 94 FSM and combined all of the old files into one organized and bookmarked awesome PDF it is available...

      So it sounds like they did a botch job on your rear main seal and it's still messed up. The transmission has to come off to fix that, no way around it. BUT there is no way that this issue could inject oil into your transmission. I suspect...

      Have you even tried to get the dealer in Florida to take responsibility for this?

      I'm doing an engine rebuild / full rig refresh for a client and am installing heated seat elements and noticed the drivers side seat bottom cover has a rip in it. Going to try and have it repaired but I wanted to see if anyone had just the cover...

      Thanks, yea IDK if this one really needs to be gas resistant. It's on the plastic electrical connector that seals the harness clip to the injector.

    • SmokingRocks
      does anyone know if you can get the o-ring that is on the electrical connector side of the injector as well? They are just as brittle as anything else and need to be replaced, not sure if there was a part number for them or if I'm SOL and need...
    • SmokingRocks
      ah yep that is true, good catch. I agree though on an engine with this low of a redline and the tolerances we are dealing with here it's not a bid deal. It's still more or less a fancy forklift motor at the end of the day.
    • SmokingRocks
      Ignition timing and valve timing are not the same. But it is not a big deal. To get valve timing correct after milling the block and head without replacing that material with a new gasket you would need adjustable cams gears.
    • SmokingRocks
      Timing is adjustable so it's not a worry. And its tensioned sooooo.... If we were zinging these engines past 6k rpm to like 7k I'd take more precautions but a low revving 1fz-fe is not going to have any issues with a little off the top. I have...
    • SmokingRocks
      Or set the timing where it is happiest. My rocks hard for a stock 1FZFE. Cheers

      Why is anyone worried about 20 thousandth And it’s minuscule affect on compression. We aren’t building race engines here

      235/85r16 at 45 psi should save a buck at the gas pump :flipoff2:

      My 80 is converted to 2WD and now I'm towing a OTG trailer. The 80 is running 315s and 4:88s and even with the trailer in tow I still see 45-50 more miles per tank on flat roads of course. Trailer and Rig feel pretty solid on the road to me.
    • SmokingRocks
      Well seems like some of us have seen a bump in economy and others have not, which pins back to the OP's questions that a PT swap should not be looked at as a viable option to increase fuel economy. If you get 1 extra mpg then hooray but don't...

      Months of daily driving burning 120-180 litres per week, traveling basically the same journey, before and after doesn't agree with your "2 tanks back to back" analysis
    • SmokingRocks
      Dave, I've been in 2wd for the past half a year via drive shaft out until I have time to get the PT swap in. I've got other projects in front of it including rebuilding a 1fz-fe from someone else, rebuilding my E30's clutch, painting it...

      I'm working on an FZJ80 with a blue/gray interior, and both sun visors are droopy. I'm looking for replacements and pricing to see if the client wants to pursue having me replace them.
