    So in the last 2 to 3 weeks as I’ve been driving my truck I could hear a hum when I would let go of the accelerator, the last couple of days the hum sounded more like a grind, similar to when the brake pads are completely worn and you hear the metal on metal grind... I though it may have been...

    Rubber window seal/guide

    Not sure what the official name is but I’m wondering if there is something I can do to lubricate the rubber window guide. Every other time when I roll my driver side window down the guide sticks to the window and and comes out of its place, this makes it hard to crank the window up or down...

    Replacing timing belt, old one is almost at 5° on the crankshaft

    So I am changing the timing belt on my ‘04 w/203k miles... I aligned the two cam marks and crankshaft mark is around 4°. Is this normal? Do I just pull belt and move crankshaft back for the new belt?

    Broken bolt on hub

    I have a broken bolt on one of the front hubs... is there a way to remove this small broken bolt? It’s been like this for years with no issues but since I am doing a complete brake job (including rotors), I figure I’d fix this.

    Need to loosen bent u-bolts on front springs

    I was ready to install some 4° shims I received from @orangefj45 but the two front u-bolts got bent on the rocks at the recent LSLC Roundup... Can I heat these up and try to straighten? If I heat them up will it affect integrity of the bolts? Should I just order a new pair?

    T case experts: Early TC/4-sp tranny or 34mm split/4-sp behind 3FE

    In the (long) process of starting to assemble my 75 FJ40... It came with the tc/4 sp tranny in the attached pictures. I also have a 34mm split case and 4 speed laying around. Which would be better behind a 3FE? Any or much difference? Is the older TC called a 3 speed? Thanks, Luis

    Truck sat for about 8 years, spongy (4 runner caliper) brakes, going back to original setup

    So my 1983 60 did not run for about 8 years and finally got it going and enjoying it again... brakes were terrible at first start, changed bad rear wheel cylinders, adjusted rear brakes and bled the fluid several times because pedal would go all the way to the floor. I finally got the air...

    Slip yoke & rear drive shaft

    How much gap should I have between the rear slip yoke and the driveshaft? I took measurements using the guidance of a thread here where you jack up the truck and measure... I had the driveshaft shortened to accommodate for the NV4500 but probably got the measurements wrong. There is less than...
