    Coolant leak is fixed. What do you all suggest I do when trying solve the high oil pressure? I ran the engine for about 20 minutes today. Oil pressure stayed high the entire time. Check engine light came on 😩. Did not read the code yet.

    Found the culprit of the coolant leak. I’m missing the thermostat guide gasket. Like I didn’t even put it back on and probably threw it away. 🥴

    Hello everyone, I am sorry that I did not do a good job of keeping up on this thread. I have a lot of good updates and some not so good. Putting the head back together was a blast. Definitely helped having an extra set of hands when reinstalling/re-seating the valves. It is sparkling clean...

    Looking for some input on radiators. Why stick with Toyota vs any other brand? Is it just for the fit or are they actually better than say Denso?

    Update: Got the head back from the machine shop and put back together. *Pro tip* get a buddy to help you re seat the valves 😂 Pulled the pans, timing cover, chain and gear set. Things look as expected. The last person to go through this over torqued every nut and bolt down so that’s been fun...

    update: Engine is finally out. Took longer than anticipated. Lessons learned so far and not in any particular order: - the wiring harness is a nightmare to deal with if you don’t remove the intake manifold before pulling the engine…expect to break some connectors -the bell housing bolts on top...

    Hey everyone I’m lookin for some input.. I’ve got a 1993 Land Cruiser and I’m about to pull the motor/trans. I’m going to do the head gasket, studs, timing chain (and guides??), as well as the rear main seal. Is there anything else you recommend I do while I have the engine and trans out? It...
