I used pan head bolts that looked exactly like riveted heads. These were higher strength bolts. I then
tack welded the perch exactly like original weld. BTW...I got my new rear frame member ... rear bumper ...
whatever you want to call it from @Awl_TEQ if thats what you're trying to do.
not original factory weld but that appears to be the exact weld configuration when it rolled off factory floor
The factory weld there is almost more of a tack weld. I replaced my rear bumper last year and this
weld ground off fairly easily (plus removing rivets) and then I slipped out and...
I'd suggest you may want to brace (rebar tack weld) across the top rear to maintain the clearance
you had before removal of that sill. These things tend to sag and change during
body work and you want to have the same measurements after welding so you don't
have any door fitment issues.
Thats probably just moved the shellac and other gunk around. It's a common thing to try but it does sound like the carb is in need of some loving. I tend to think your expert buddy wasn't totally wrong.
The issue for me was the PO pumped it full of grease and the seals were exceptionally tight. So pumping it full of grease caused active pressure attempting to expand it. I removed the alemite grease nipple and grease spurted out like I struck oil. After that pressure release, the drive...
Don't take what I'm suggesting as knowledge....but the contact points you show and what I see in the diagrams seem like they
are logically correct. Have you looked closely at the fork (upper part of your pic) and the wiring connections there? Seems like if you've applied pressure at the red...
My rear bumper got the bitter end of pulling too much by a PO. After having completely removed and
replaced the bumper, my untrained assessment is someone is seriously overestimating with 3000lb. The structure behind
that bumper in the middle is pretty timid.
As noted they are somewhat plentiful. However...repurpose it. Its actually a beautiful piece of art to hang on a wall.
Five bucks says there is a thread on here....or should be about people repurposing parts as art.
I've seen beautiful results on here with both aqualu and gozzard. I seem to remember a thread where someone was
specifically addressing how to properly brace fiberglass attachment to frame. I think in all of these cases you're going
with nutsert type insert attachments for window frame...
Indeed. Slow down on random vendors providing parts. Some of this can just be had at your local Toyota dealership also. They certainly have the water pump. I'd bet a starter could have been had from them also.
meh...doesn't look that bad on the rust front...however check the top of the rear quarter panels where the roof attaches. We always are posting about this rust on the bottom rear sill and quarter panels...but that one looks like its got some issues along the back roofline. That is NOT the...
