Ha, yeah, I asked for parts, not CLEAN parts and I wouldn't expect anyone to go through all the effort of cleaning them up prior to sale. It is a ton of grody work...Rick,
Looking good! Yeah, I could have cleaned them up, but that costs extra and I figured I'd pass the savings on to you
I think you are on to something with that eco-system thing. I found about a dozen mud dauber nests on the block and transmission.
Are you swapping out the rotors? If you are just going to clean them up and have them turned (my recommendation) I would leave them in. Otherwise, a shop press is the only way to go to handle these. Trying to pound them out (and back in) is a biotch and risks damaging the threads.
I'm having to be careful with my 2FE swap, I have to concentrate on not gettign ahead of myself. I've spent the last 3 days pouring over schematics of the FJ62 and the FJ40 and have to fight the urge to complete the wiring before I have all the parts to swap out the head and other mechanicals. Patience is not one of my virtues.
Good luck with the rest of the swap and keep us posted on the progress.
Yeah, the brake shoes were toast! Literally 2mm left on the pads. In addition, I plan to get a fresh coat of paint on everything, so I pretty much need everything separated and spotless.Good point. It is a good idea to baseline if you can. The truck did have 248k on it from looking at the odometer. And by the look of the spark plugs, they were in there for 100k of that.
Engine is good. Loss of drive power to wheels.Did you check the coil on the camry. They're famous for shorting through the case and grounding to the distributor shaft.
