Hey Guys,
I have a 90 4Runner with a 3.0L

The Idler bracket which is part of my timing cover has a pulley mount on it, which seems to have seized. I've been shopping around here in BC for one and Im having a hell of a time even finding one within hundreds of miles in a scrap yard.

New, they are rediculously expensive.

Apparently, this is a very common problem, hence, they are so hard to find in a scrap yard. So I figured I'd ask you guys. Is there somewhere I can get this thing? even used? without paying WAY to much??

Is there any way you could press off the flange and just replace teh bearings? Most good auto parts stores will have a catalog that you can use to order teh exact bearing you need, specified by ID and OD . . . just a thought, 2 bearings would only run ~$10-20
cant press it off. the housing breaks.

Yup. The pulley in front won't let you get a good support point.

Common problem. Expensive to replace.
Try giving a call to Toy Connection in Santa Clara, Ca.
