    Nice clean engine compartment! Hard to tell from video, but it does look to vibrate. If with engine off you can wobble the pulley then that’s not good, you are probably correct about bearings. Better inspection would be to pull the belt off, the pulley should not wobble or have any looseness...

    Thanks guys! I’ve used a few tanks of gas for commuting and Christmas travel, and I have been watching the PS pump after tightening a hose fitting with minor but obvious fluid leak. The pics told a good story, that long term that little leak created quite a mess on the old air pump. It’ll be...

    Resurrecting this thread to followup and say that the brown bear is running again this weekend. The Cardone pump appears to be holding up. No crazy noises after an hour run time, 5 road miles. Ha! Off to a good start.

    Did the swap today. On this Cardone I had same issue as DXFR and needed to file about 1/16" off and round some edges of the sleeve so it would fit in the bracket for the long pivot bolt. I also needed to tap the top hole, it was jacked and I couldn't get a bolt to thread in. Other stuff seemed...

    I got antsy so I went with the Cardone. It spins and pushes air. Looks interesting, I hope it fits and lasts a while! I haven't pulled the stock one from my truck yet, if i remember later during the swap I'll take a side by side photo.

    Hey folks, I have a click click clicking from the air pump on my 1984 FJ60. By hand with the belt off smog pump spins freely, but clicks a couple times each revolution, both clockwise and counterclockwise. WIth engine on there has also been a clicking noise at idle, and on occasion worse noises...

    Local radiator repair

    Thanks guys for the recommendation! I got the radiator out, dropped it off at SOCO around 515p Monday right before they closed. They said they rodded it out and welded and pressure tested, and then called to tell me it was ready around noon the next day. Might be a bit before I get it back in...

    Build month not on VIN plate 84 FJ60

    I usually see month on the driver door plate, the one in my photo above. There is no month on the plate under the hood either. Anyone else have a missing month on their driver door vin plate? Thanks!
