    Rusted / Leaking connector for gas lines and breather

    Hi guys, Local dealer wants $100 for the connector that sits in between the breather and the tank. For now I have just plugged the one line that was the worst offender. Any thoughts? Can you skip the connector? Anyone have a used one in decent shape?

    Timing chain question on 1FZ re-assembly

    Hey mudders, Reassembling the 1FZ in the garage after a head job and bearings. Have engine at TDC 0 degrees. Head timing marks on camshaft gears are also matching together with timing chain on and oil pump cover installed. Does it matter where the marks I put on the chain are at, or is it...

    Real time help please - 1FZ reassembly

    Thanks guys. How do you ensure timing chain and pistons match up? TDC on piston 1, cams not reinstalled yet, timing chain not reinstalled yet. Remember those marks to make the gears line up. Marks on the chain indicate TDC on gear and crank... Still a little bit fuzzy on how that goes back...

    Real time help please - 1FZ reassembly

    Hi mudders, posted a note last night about the gears for the oil pump and on the crank--was wondering if someone could confirm that these gears are supposed to be free spinning: YouTube - 1FZ Engine question...

    1fz / tranny / transfer case won't come out of truck

    The gear on the front of the driveshaft, and the gear that drives the oil pump seem to be free spinning as I look at reassembling the front cover. Is that correct? Crank is torqued down, connected.... I would have guessed that the gear would be fixed to the crank...

    Current $$$ for tranny rebuild/replacement?

    Used trannies in Minnesota run $300-$550 with 100k-180k. Have them stop what they are doing and swap it out with one?

    1fz / tranny / transfer case won't come out of truck

    Okay, head serviced, crank ground ten thousandths. Don't have that Toyota service manual and the Haynes one says to check specs for main bearings with plastigage but doesn't give the tolerance. Anyone got that number? Pics later tonight.

    Is it worth fixing?

    Fix it!!! You'll have fun doing it, and be that much more attached to the truck when it is done!

    Fix it or Junk it?

    Fix it. The cheapest car is the one you own already. That and it's a frickin' cruiser.

    WTF!?! Two expensive problems in one day... Tranny & 4wd Solenoid

    Also swapped vacuum lines on the 4x4 solenoid and it seems to be working working correctly--although the lines look like they are backwards now from a visual perspective. Whatever, it's working. Thanks again everyone!!!

    WTF!?! Two expensive problems in one day... Tranny & 4wd Solenoid

    Thanks again for all your insight guys. 1-2 is working very well, 2-3 is shifting smoothly at 3,000 rpm, 3-overdrive is also shifting smoothly at 3,000. This is after the flush, and now a new filter instead of just a clean one which has made a world of difference. My thoughts are the only one...
