Laurel is pretty close to me. I'm going to give em a try. I need to get a flywheel resurfaced.I and another wheeler had our 2F heads machined at:
Burtonsville Performance Machine Service
5210 Minnik Rd.
It was a few years back, but they did good work. DON'T forget to have your oil galley plug tapped for an allen head plug while they have the head. Like me.
I'll second that recommendationI'm looking for a shop in the northern VA area to diagnose an A/C issues I've been having with my 88 FJ62. It blows cool-ish and the compressor and fan clutch seem to be engaging with the idle up functioning as it should. I'm hoping it just needs a recharge. It blew ice cold when I bought it in June of 2016 and this is the first sign of things not working as they should.
Hey Ryan, the truck has been converted to R134a. I ended up passing on the cans at the local parts store because they all had sealers. I'll give you a call in the morning to chat. Thanks!If you charge it with a cheap can make sure it doesn't have sealer in it. Sealer kills AC systems and the service equipment. Has yours been converted to R134a? Being an 88 there's a chance it's still R12.
Ok, where pray tell is this wonderous place of which you speak?This might not be news to some of you but it was great news to me. I just had all 4 of my worn out Goodyear MTRs balanced for $21.99, only 5 bucks more if you want them to do your spare. They had to use 3 weights totaling 7 ounces on one rim but damn if my ride ain't smooth again. They also use impacts hard set to 60 lbs/ft then torque wrenches to spec. They even asked if I was running the steel wheels (never sold with the truck in the US) or alloys and had the right FSM specified torque specs for both. I was pretty impressed.
Edit: At Costco.
