    Well, yesterday I finally solved all of my vacuum leak issues. Like I mentioned in my post above, the Redline adapter plate for the Holley Sniper system came with bolts that were too long for the blind threads in the OEM Toyota intake manifold. They were bottoming out before cinching the adapter...

    Agreed. I will probably do the diesel swap first with long range fuel tank. I'd like to drive it with a diesel a little bit before I make a decision on the diff gears. Then swap to a full float rear axle, 3.7 diff gears, and Harrop lockers at the same time. At that point I can decide if I also...

    Do I also need these wedges between the rubber mount and the frame mount for my 40? Or are those for 60 series only?

    I just read through your whole thread - Bravo. I think my favorite part was that you fully rebuilt the 12HT, and then proceeded to immediately take it on an epic road trip. Fantastic work. Any chance you have an extra 12HT (old or rebuilt) that you're willing to sell?

    Will the early HJ60 bracket work in the 40 series? Do you have a photo?

    Well, I figured out my (second) vacuum leak with the Holley Sniper. The first Holley Sniper kit I purchased was from Cam Mosley at Mosley Motors. Cam has been absolutely awesome to work with and is always available for tech support. Without fail - nights and weekends - he is there to help me...

    Thanks so much, Alberto. I have actually reached out to both Roma and Michael. On the gears - 4.56 diff gears might have been a mistake. That was early in my build process and I just took the advice of the reputable vendor I purchased the ARB air lockers from. I'm not even certain they're...

    Remflex gasket and copper coat?

    Thanks for the heads up. I already had both the intake/exhuast flanges machined to match on the head-side. I don't have any vacuum/exhaust leaks at the head. I used ARP fasteners with the TPI header and they work great. Just trying to eliminate the vacuum leak between the intake manifold and the...

    Remflex gasket and copper coat?

    Already ordered. I figured it's not worth the hassle of putting everything back together, only for the vacuum leak to migrate to the used Remflex gasket. I do have Coppercoat. But I'll probably just apply it to the new gasket.

    Remflex gasket and copper coat?

    You guys might be able to help with this. I have a vacuum leak at the intake manifold to Holley Sniper adapter plate. I need to pull the intake manifold to have it machined flat. Any chance I can reuse my Remflex gasket? Nothing is leaking at the Remflex, and they’re not cheap to replace. TIA.

    The OEM redline for the 2F is 4,000 RPM. The redline for both the 2H and 12HT is 4,100 RPM to 4,170 RPM. So I would certainly be no worse than my current setup.

    Well, some good news and some bad news. The BAD: Yesterday I got a state inspection for the truck so I can drive it legally. I noticed a lot of clunking from the drivetrain, so I took it to my buddy's shop who specializes in Toyotas and Land Cruisers. The driveline clunk was just...

    I was able to modify the fuel tank breather line and extend it up to the front passenger wheel well. That fixed the fuel dumping issue on steep inclines. It's geared so low it will go down The Hill at our lake property without touching the brakes. And it will go up The Hill without touching the...

    I wouldn’t hold your breathe. OP hasn’t posted in this thread since Feb 17. Also, Dallas is shut down because of Coronavirus. I expect @rivrat will be back around once the pandemic slows down and things get back to “normal.”
