    2.5" OME Install on LX450 - Can't tighten top shock bolts

    not really sure what I can hold onto... holding the lower shock body doesnt prevent the shaft from spinning and there is a plastic protector on the upper part and nothing to get a firm grip on. Should I remove or cut the plastic protector?

    2.5" OME Install on LX450 - Can't tighten top shock bolts

    looking for suggestions... my ome fronts came with a nylon locking nut that is so hard to tighten that I’m about to start over with non locking nuts. I’ve got a 8mm wrench on the flats and a 19 ratchet on the nut and I am pulling so hard that it’s starting to round off the flats and I havent...

    1985 FJ60 buying advice

    someone would pay 40k for what you just described... Obviously it should drive and stop pretty well and suspension shouldn't be too saggy. Bring a magnet, check for rust (then check again), check for corroded clamps and cracks in hoses, check the steering knuckles, check for oil leaks, check...

    High volt problem...

    do you think I should try to replace the voltage regulator first and see how it goes? I was thinking the alternator was working since it was generating power...⚡⚡

    High volt problem...

    at idle it's about 13V and as it revs up it goes to 17-17.5 just like to dash gauge is indicating. But now overnight the battery has been completely drained (it's new)... not even so much as a dome light will come on.

    High volt problem...

    Strange problem developed yesterday... at idle everything is fine, but as soon as the engine revs the voltage meter pegs high and shortly thereafter the abs light comes on followed by the airbag light. Come to a stop and the voltage goes back to normal and the lights go away. Engine runs fine...

    spark plug tube seal removal/install

    seals were original (I think) but they were so brittle that when I whacked them out of the valve cover, they just left behind the metal ring and I wasn't sure if that was part of the old seal or not. Judging by the pictures these guys posted of the empty valve cover and their description of how...

    spark plug tube seal removal/install

    see that step near the opening? I think that might be the inner part of the old ring. New ring wont come close to fitting, no amount of hammering will get it in, it would require trimming the seal

    spark plug tube seal removal/install

    got a pic of it without the new seal in? I think there is a metal part of the old seal still in there and I've just chiseled out the rubber/plastic
