    After de-smog: high idle, fuel leak

    Guess I just needed a break from the FSM, because I immediately found it this morning - the mystery part was the cold start injector pipe, and its "gaskets" are basically 2 brass tabs that go on either side of the injector pipe/line (one between the bolt and fitting and the other between the...

    After de-smog: high idle, fuel leak

    Thanks for the reassurance. Now once I get that fuel line bolt appropriately torqued so I'm not leaking fuel I can drive it long enough to see that happen. Thanks for the help!

    After de-smog: high idle, fuel leak

    My 1992 fj80 started idling very rough whenever in gear, to the point where I thought it was constantly going to stall when stopped at the stoplight. Figured I had a vacuum leak, and sure enough the pipe near the check valve of the air manifold was rusted and snapped in two. I pulled air pump...

    RTH - 3fe Torque Specs, T-stat to block

    I was so focused looking through the coolant section, it never occurred to me to look elsewhere in the FSM. Looks like I need to do some more exploratory reading in this to see what other tidbits I can find. Thanks very much! ~ Kyle

    RTH - 3fe Torque Specs, T-stat to block

    The water pump on my '92 (175k miles) finally gave out, so I'm replacing the thermostat while I'm in there. Thanks to @beno for the parts, super-fast shipping, and helpful advice on the project. The FSM says that the 4 bolts that hold the thermostat housing together need to be 13 ft-lbs, but...

    My roof rack build

    Have you walked around on your rack at all? If so, have you noticed any flex with the 0.095 thick tubing?

    Confused on EGR Delete?

    Man, that's really selfish of you ;) But seriously, sorry to hear about that. That's a real bummer, and I totally understand. Good luck on the grant apps and/or search in the mean time. Looking forward to seeing your write-up, but you obviously have bigger fish to fry first. Best wishes to ya...

    Confused on EGR Delete?

    @LS1FJ40 Did you ever post your write up on your EGR delete? I saw you talk about it on the "What did you do with your 80 this weekend" thread, but haven't been able to actually find it.

    roof rack mounting

    To the OP - have you mounted this yet? If so can you please post up some pics of it? I just ordered my Kargo Master gutter mounts (ONLY 8 bc I'm not as extreme as Snake Eater ;)). Mine will be for hauling canoe/camping gear, but one of my must-haves for this is that it's large enough to haul 4x8...

    ToyBOATa

    Love the build. I'm sick of how dim my domes are, so am really looking into upgrades. Too bad Pfran doesn't do his any more. It always seems that when I come across a mod I could really use, by the time I come across it it's no longer being made :mad: Do the lights seem to be holding up well...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    At this point in my "wrenching" experience, I don't even know if I can claim to be a 1/2 :banana: mechanic. So I prefer things as idiot-proof as I can get them (preferably with a "paint by numbers" section in the back of the instruction manual). But seriously, I was super surprised at how easy...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Finally took out my (non-working) OEM radio and installed a new head unit. Still haven't figured the new settings out. WHY do the instructions have ALL of these words and NO pictures?! :bang: My first time working working car electronics and soldering. Just about everything I do to this truck is...

    Confused on EGR Delete?

    Very nice! The valve cover looks suh-weet! Are you planning on putting any step by step instructions for the guys like me who need it more dummie-proofed? ;) Do you have any plans for that unused space now? Do you think that's enough surplus room for an aux battery? That's what I'm hoping to do...

    Confused on EGR Delete?

    Do you guys plan on taking pics for this project? I've been wanting to do this for a while. Right now I'm lucky to get 9mpg city, so cat delete and new 02 sensors are happening as soon as I get a free day. Then I want to do the EGR delete. I've seen some good write-ups on the EGR delete, but my...

    92 Radiator Purgatory

    Believe me, once I found out that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on an OEM, Koyo was my next option. After a week of scouring the Interwebs any chance I could, I came to the sad realization that Koyo must currently only makes rads for 93s and on, since I had zero luck on any sight for a Koyo...

    92 Radiator Purgatory

    Here it is all put together. I've been driving it for a couple weeks now. It's been warming up now, and my temp gauge has stayed exactly where it was with my OEM radiator - just a hair below the halfway point on the gauge. The top of the Shepherd doesn't have any sort of bracket to keep the line...

    92 Radiator Purgatory

    The radiator fit in there perfectly, but I did have to do a little "customization" to make it stay in there. It came with mounting brackets already on. The holes at the bottom of the mounting brackets where about 3/8 of an inch off from where the radiator mounts at the bottom. I was going to try...
