Just purchased my LX470 so bear with me.
My AHC will go down from N position to LOW. But it never comes up to N if requested through the UP button.
Once I start driving, it will go from LOW to N, as it should.
It will not go into HI from N... It will not go into N from Low.
Is my button UP...
I'm 85% done with my split case rebuild behind an A440F on my FJ62, while A440F remains on the LC.
After I put all the gears back on, I noticed that there is a lot more resistance spinning the gears in one direction than the other. Thought it was my thrust washer but that's in place. Finally...
No wonder I was hearing that hum...
Taking my TC apart for a rebuild, I discovered lots o' play in the input gear.
Took it off and noticed that the FSM mentioned O-ring was missing and saw how screwed I was...
Soooo, how much effort is it to change this Automatic Transmission Output...
OK, FSM says you have to warm up the engine before adjusting the valves. Great. I will warm it up, but will it stay warm enough while I struggle with the valve cover, TDC, checking... etc.?
What's my window here? hour?
Tried to manufacture an SST... 4th time's the charm.
1/8" steel not strong enough. I first tried to drill the holes to fit around the nut, but the holes were too close too the edge and didn't have enough metal. tried to put them closer to the center but still not enough. So I just went out...
The original cover had paint on the inside that was flaking off, so I helped it out. Now do I paint this or just keep bare and assume the oil will prevent it from rusting. Same for the flange, do I repaint it?
the PO or his mechanic really screwed up the bolts on the crankshaft timing cover. Now I'm not sure the screws are the right dimension. Anyone have the dimensions of these B and C so I can double check their length?
Starting from the one that is being unscrewed going clockwise. looks like I...
For some reason, the FSM and Toyota sites don't have too much info on the pulleys. I'm trying to figure out whether the two idler pulleys are the same, A/C pulley and PS pulley. They look a little different to me so should I also assume the bearings will be different?
Found a way to calculate my fan clutch speed using my iphone's slow mo speed.
70 degree day cold start had it at 60%.... sounds a little too much. Need to do it when the engine is warm, but I'm not sure if it'll change as the gauge never goes abofe 1/4
decided to save some money and have the brake shop machine my drums, and since they were in there replace the shoes.
They put it all together and the pedal felt really soft and the hand brake wasn't working. They looked at me and said they adjusted the crank wheel accordingly... told them to...
Anyone try a simple temp fix for the seat cushion crush, swapping left and right seat cushions? I would think that it would hold the foam replacement off for sometime.
Could the rails be only swapped from seat bottom or would I have to do the invasive seat cushion install?
Frustrating to think you've found a matching set of handles and plugs only to realize they do not match
PLIG, ASSIST GRIP
ASSIST, FRONT; ASSIST, REAR. GRAY
I was willing to live with gray instead of ivory...
Happens at highway speeds, in both 4th and 3rd gears under load as it goes away when foot is taken off the accelerator... There's the engine noise and then the humming.
sounds like the humming coming below me.
We all have the PDF of the Parts catalog that seemed to have started out as MicroFiche, however has anyone put that through an Adobe Scan to recognize text and make it searchable? It would be a quick guide if we could search it instead of scrolling..... and scrolling.....
So a more pronounced thud appeared last week. Started worrying me as I thought maybe it was my tie rods and nobody wants to lose a tie rod when they're driving.
Here is a video of knocking during sharp turning:
My rods are a little loose.... is this travel per design?
Want to fill up my knuckles with the recommended NLGI No.2 through the knuckle plug, however I have no idea what is in there. Any concerns about mixing with any particular greases that may use incompatible thickening agents? Perhaps there are rules of thumb on color, assuming I can dig some...
