    Toyota 3.0 V6 question Oil baffle missing?

    It bolts on between the oil pan and the block. Like a windage tray sandwich. So yes, the oil pan bolts hold it in place. I'm going to pull one from another parts truck. If it's there, I'll answer my question, plus I'd need it anyway. Not being installed might have been what destroyed the bearings.

    Recall! Harbor Freight Jack Stands

    $199 for Jack stands! That's exactly why people shop at Harbor Freight! I go to estate/garage/yard/going out of business sales and auctions to buy American made tools

    Toyota 3.0 V6 question Oil baffle missing?

    Anyone? I might just pull an oil pan off another one to see if it's in there. Would anybody be interested in buying non-warrantied rebuilt 3.0 motors from a small garage(me)? I've rebuilt 3 that as far as I know are still going strong. They'd be around 1800 for a long block. Thinking of just...

    Builds 1994 4Runner project

    I just took a 3.0 to a local Napa machine shop. To clean, resurface the heads and block, hone the cylinders, grind the crank and mic everything is less than 1k. Figure nowadays, most 3.4s are up in mileage where they would need a rebuild anyway. This is an easy motor to rebuild.

    pulling my last hairs out-help

    I'm not sure if its the same, but I had a similar problem in a 93 4Runner. There is one of the bigger fuses in the box under the hood that goes to the alternator. It is bolted in from underneath, so you cant just pull it out. Luckily I had a spare in my parts bin because I couldn't find it for...

    Trekker cab to body mount?

    I picked up a "Trekker" awhile ago and am debating on the route I should take. It is an actual Trekker back half attached to a pickup cab. I'd like to restore it but am debating if I should cut the back off the cab and attach it like Winnebago did. Does anyone have detailed pictures or...

    Toyota 3.0 V6 question Oil baffle missing?

    I'm rebuilding a 3.0 V6. Not sure the year it came out of but it has an oil cooler on the side of the block. My question is, did all years come with the oil baffle below the crankshaft? Between the pan and the block. When I took apart this particular motor, it was missing. Could that have lead...

    Upgraded steering

    This has probably been gone over thousands of times but I'm trying to do disc brakes on the front of my 69 FJ55. I had a line on a FJ60 front axle but someone else got to it before me. I think I have enough mini truck parts (knuckles, spindles) to put it together that way. I was going to use the...

    69 FJ40 build

    I've run into some problems with the mixed years body/parts. The tub is a 74 but the bench seats I have are from the original 69. They don't fit. Also the gas tank cover does not clear the poly gas tank I bought from Cruiser Corp. What would ya'll recommend? Put later model seats in or...

    craigslist 88 4runner solid axle and locked

    It could definitely go for some bigger tires or lower lift for sure. The problem is i built stuff into the 2" body lift and I don't want to change up the suspension to lower it that way. I'll let the next owner mess with that. I also don't want to spend the money on new 37s.

    And is there a factory style top out there? There was that guy in Pakistan. Is he still around? Did the FST have doors at all or just the straps?

    69 FJ40 build

    It is a FST. I have the tailgate, just need to drill the holes for the hinges and mount the latch brackets on the 74 body. I have the canvas safety straps but the top is long gone. I had a couple questions about the badges on the back. Which side do they go on in 69? Someone filled in the holes...

    69 FJ40 build

    Hey guys. I've had this 69 for a while and have done a lot of work to it but never did a buildup thread. I bought it from a friend who got it from his neighbor, the original owner family. They brought it here from California in 1985 and parked it. I have the original sales receipt! Somewhere...
