You are using a manual for the fj80 not for the fzj80 the pump is not the same but inside is really close. Look for a updated manual, in one of the older post says how to look for a 1997 FSM.Just in the middle of rebuilding mine using this and the FSM. Vanes and Rotor gaps are far both out of spec. Should I ditch whole pump and buy a new one?
Side note: my pump sits down just to the side of the oil filter with the reservoir up on top . The 93 FSM shows it run off a pulley with the reservoir bolted directly to the top. Makes me doubt the FSM specs.
If the manual shows the P/S Pump driven by a belt then that is not the case of a 1FZ-FE pump.Funny. FSM is definitely for 93 and says FZJ. Must be a holdover mistake from 92. Would also explain why my kit is missing one o-ring.
I did and it has worked like a charm for the past few months.Hey all, this is probably a dumb question.... did you lube up your o-rings with hydro oil before putting them in to form a better seal. Its been 20 years since I built valves for a water valve company, and I recall doing this on them. I've read the thread a few times now and may have missed that.
Here is a picture.
Hows the Amsoil holding up in your Pump Gnob?and the "clear" fluid
hard to say without knowing what it is.
from what i have seen toyotas dont come from the factory with ATF as the PS fluid.
it appears to be power steering fluid or some other hydraulic.
for the record i used "amsoil tractor and hydraulic fluid" in my 22RE pump with no ill effects. and the new PSC pump for that matter.
