    Got into this carb, cleaned & rebuilt the whole thing got all the linkage figured out, got her mounted up, figured out all the vacuum routing again and can’t get a good idle + dies when rolling to a stop sign due to vacuum leaks at the base. Good news is that my mid-range flat spot above 2500...

    I got the 3rd member back from Georg and it’s great! Super quiet and safe now! She’s tucked away with fresh oil and fill/drain plugs! Thanks @orangefj45!

    Charged the AC, she’s blowing cold now however my idle up system isn’t kicking in. Need to check the wiring to make sure the VSV is getting power & also rebuild the OEM carb and replace whatever aftermarket thing this came with… We took the old suspension to the dump w/the nerf bars and fixed...

    Compression tested finally, got ~120 on all cylinders except 1 which read 115, then 120, and is now holding at 130. I assume this is nothing to worry about.

    Valve adjustment complete! Warmed her up & Used the hot specs. Haven’t road tested it yet but fixed a couple of incorrect vacuum routings and after adjusting the valves my off idle hesitation is gone.

    De-nerfed… the front bumper is gone and the brackets are also missing, the rear “bumper” is welded to the original brackets… started attempting to grind the welds and I’m thinking it may be easier for someone w/a plasma cutter… My Sacramento friend who is a metal worker is pretty busy, anyone...

    Got into the rear end & decided it would be best for me to take it to someone for a full rebuild… Will get’er down to Georg as soon as possible! The gears look to be in good shape for 265k but might as well give it some love.

    My afternoon opened up today and I was able to get this thing into the smog shop, and it passed! Super stoked, and very surprised! On to the next project, pinion bearing & the truck is currently suffering from the flat spot issue from 2500-3k rpm so I’ll be trying all of the tips noted in the...

    got the timing set, fixed some vacuum line routing, started charging the AC & the smog pump locked up! Was gonna take it in to get smogged first thing in the AM :/ Hoping I can pull it and de-vane then reinstall w/out too much trouble…. From what I’ve read it should run the same but I assume...

    Here’s the rig after lift install. It’s sitting level left to right & I’m assuming the front is going to relax a little w the weight of the 2f… still need to measure it, the lift didn’t bring it up too much because it had long shackles on it but the ride is definitely better!

    Last weekend we started on the suspension. Got all of the springs swapped out with the HFS kit. Mangled a couple of the pins so ordered from Toyota and waiting for one of them and that will be wrapped up! Looking forward to taking it for a drive. It sits nice and level now / will post some...

    Wheels that work, part numbers

    Assuming they’re possibly aftermarket because IIUC the 40 steelies have rivets which won’t clear the calipers

    Wheels that work, part numbers

    Those look like 40series wheels or some other steely, hard to tell if they have the clips from this pic. The 60 series wheels are more of a wagon style.
