    1980 20R engine rookie

    I would recommend 3 psi. It’s probably best to get the regulator and a gauge so you know exactly what pressure you are providing. Here is my setup as an example. I’m running the Weber 32/36.

    Exhaust Manifold questions (20R)

    Thanks for the input. I got the heat shield off and had a look. There are supposed to be 7 studs holding the manifold on and sure enough there is no stud back by cylinder #4 where I was feeling the exhaust air. Also, as is usually the case, looks like someone has been in here before as I...

    Exhaust Manifold questions (20R)

    I've been tracking down/fixing some exhaust leaks and now I have come to the primary leak. When I hold my hand up against the heat shield I can feel exhaust air coming out a couple of the open ports (see pic), so I assume I need to replace the exhaust manifold gasket. I've done some research...

    Toyota Beater Build - 1981 4WD

    You’re killing it with the videos. Puts a smile on my face with each update. Now that she’s made her first trash run I think she’s ready for a car show. That old truck is sure to get more attention than any concours restoration.

    Air Vent only works on High, no Low or Med

    Just wanted to comment how much I enjoy this forum and the knowledge that is here. My heater blower has never worked on Low since I got my '79. I found this thread in a matter of minutes and pulled my heater blower resistor out. Sure enough, one of the coils is broken (see pic). Found the...

    L43 shifter assistance

    I would think that your leak is transmission fluid. There is is probably a bad oil seal where the shifter shaft goes into that side case in front of the deteriorated boot you have circled in red on your picture.

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    No worries. Thanks for looking. I'll keep an eye out for one. I've never been, but I may take a trip to a salvage yard. Anybody know of any good yards that have these old trucks in the Dallas area?

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    Thank you sir. Even if you find a broken one, maybe figure out how it comes apart.

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    Well, good news and bad. Good news is that I've diagnosed where the problem is. Bad news is that it is the switch. I tested continuity from the wiring harness (see pic) back to the switch and I have NO continuity when the button is pressed. I then tested continuity from the wiring harness...

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    Per your suggestion, gnob, I used the 10V off the plug and connected ground to the other lead on the pump and the pump does work. So I need to check the switch. I can test for continuity or maybe just clean the connections on the stalk switch first. How does that stalk come apart? Does the...

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    No, I am not pushing the washer button. I just have key on and measuring for 12 volts on the blue wire. Key off = 0V, Key on = 10.4 volts checking at front and rear of connector.

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    Ok, with key on and voltmeter connected to negative terminal of battery and blue wire on pump plug I am getting 10.4V. Seems like that should be showing 12V?

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    You'll have to dumb it down for me gnob. I see that same diagram in the FSM. All my tests have been with the key in the on position. Not sure if this matters, but the washer pump is not the original and is just a universal pump/washer tank.

    Need help diagnosing windshield wiper pump not working

    Let me just say I'm really, really out of my element when it comes to electrical. Ok, I have a 1979 pickup and I'm trying to figure out why my washer pump is not working when activating the switch. Here is what I have done so far. - the windshield wipers work on all three settings...

    L43 shifter assistance

    Well Pappy, I ended up having to use just the black spacer. The green seat was still too thick. The shifter isn't perfect, but it is definitely better. Those retainer bushings that you pointed out are part number 33615 that you see on the parts diagram that I attached. I got some of those as...

    L43 shifter assistance

    Hello Everyone, My shifter was very sloppy so after researching here, there are alot of posts indicating to replace the shifter seat and shifter lever bushing. I've got the correct lever bushing and I ordered part number 33505-35020, but this can't be the correct seat for the L43 side mounted...

    Leaking Load Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV), '79 pickup

    Thanks for the responses. I'm going to just remove it like ya'll said. Hopefully that will be one less drip on my garage floor...:)

    Leaking Load Sensing Proportioning Valve (LSPV), '79 pickup

    It's been leaking a little for months, but I came out today to find a large puddle of brake fluid. It appears that I am missing parts to this that would actually make if function properly (see pic). Isn't there supposed to be an arm that attaches to the LSPV to allow for it to sense a load...

    Ball on transmission drain plug

    For the sloppy shifter I found that Marlin Crawler makes some replacement shifter seats, but I didn’t see that they had anything for pre 81 trucks. I was going to give them a call but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
