All 40's have less than 100k miles. No 40 odometer has ever rolled over and you can verify the actual mileage of the truck by simply stating what it says on the dash. Even if the odometer hasn't worked for years, it's still the original mileage.

I recently got a question about separating the 3FE air cleaner lid, in order to fabricate the LS-friendly intake. All we did was grind down this lip on the inside of the air cleaner lid, to separate the seam:
The end result:
I have found the Toyota mechanical bottle jacks from any year/model to be super handy over the years. They are a great go-to for roadside and trailside repairs. Extra ones from parts rigs have found their way into my trailer/towing tool bag and most of my vehicles. There's not really anything...
We just had a 3.4L come into the shop with about a 1/4" if play in the crank. With the belts off, you could grab the crank pulley and shove the whole crank in and out. The crazy thing was, it didn't make a sound(yet). Since you replaced the harmonic balancer, I would guess that you would have...
