    Rebuilding the starter is always fun, at least you got yours out to do it. I turned that damn thing every which way I could. In the end I ended up resting mine in the sway bar and doing the rebuild under the truck. :confused:

    One thread had a video posted on how to get it out. Gotta remove the transmission dipstick and the brackets holding the brake lines. The sad thing is thst I get to do this all over again as I will ultimately need to replace the starter. This one was a reman. Toyota and the contacts were in bad shape. Here it is almost done. 1463249572311-861170053.jpg

    Been awhile since I worked on my truck. I am getting ready for the Tracy City trip and lo and behold another axle seal failure on the right side now it's time for my vehicle so here's a few pictures I'm hoping to get this done before tomorrow but I get out. 20161229_181227.jpg 20161229_181442.jpg 20161229_182158.jpg

    The last time I did this was during my divorce in the pouring rain storm it took me almost 8 hours to get it all done so hopefully I'll be back by 2 to 3 hours here a few more I've got the axle out. The question I have is what is this black residual sludge that is around the Red Seal just passed the Rotator for the anti-lock brake the gear looking thing 20161229_182713.jpg 20161229_182723.jpg 20161229_182739.jpg

    Well, I got the truck into garage and transmission fluid drained. It looks like it's never been changed I hopefully didn't damage the transmission. 1523123781451-1335774446.jpg

    I stand corrected , it was changed out, but nasty. I assume it was a drain and fill and not a flush. 20180407_180355.jpg 20180407_174224.jpg 20180407_174145.jpg

    You might be right, guess I should order some seals. I have a ton of other issues to address
