    Had this delivered from Idaho and just got it today. Hoping for just some simple baselining and then pressing it into DD use so I can either tackle the head gasket on the Cammo Cruiser or tear into the LX that needs what seems like everything done. The head work should come first, but even with the garage heated its still cold. Why didn't I listen to Andy and insulate those garage doors last year like he told me to.

    HA ... if we just counted Yotas you are WAAAAYYY ahead of me. This is the new Bagel delivery vehicle until my son turns 16, but not sure I will be able to part with it.

    Got the engine back together and into the truck. Had my son in law help with the actual install it's a bitch installing a 2F into a truck with the transmission and transfer in place. aligning everything and taking it slow worked fine. I remember doing this myself (alone) way back in 2010 when I originally installed the engine, which had been in my orange and white piggy. Getting older doesn't make things any easier! I need a new coil to distributor cable it'll be here tomorrow, then all I need to do hopefully is start it up and install the hood. Hope it goes well tomorrow!

    It's not too late. Some spray foam or foam boards and you will be much warmer and spend less on heat too.

    I used a kit from Foam it Green like 8 years ago in my basement. It took only 2 hrs but the cost was about $700.

    I used a similar two part spray foam product to insulate my barn. Works well, but can get messy, and is not cheap!

    Ayrtyte insulation. John Aughenbaugh. Good guy, does lots of work for us, if you’re flexible on timing he will give you a good price.

    I like them, steering is lighter, they turn in a little surprisingly. I feel less rolling resistance compaired to the sportier tires I replaced.
    They should do well in the snow, lots of siping.

    I always think of this scene from Seinfeld for some reason when I do an easy fix on something that I was worrying way too much on.
    Dances ::My truck doesn't need a transmission::

    Silver 4Runner just hit 230K this week so I did a 30K service as well as dropped the transmission pan to replace the the filter in an attempt to rectify a front pump whine the truck developed in the past month.

    Good news is no more front pump whine, this is also not the first time the pan has been dropped, already had an aftermarket gasket (normally Toyota Orange FIPG seal the pan) and while everything was installed properly it looks like the filter failed and collapsed on itself, I will try to take pictures tomorrow.

    EDIT: Update with pictures of filter. Its hard to see the filter collapsed, it should be sitting about a 1/4" closer to the opening. It is also definitely dirty.

    At last years breakfast I had to do a radiator while at Andy's, I had not gotten pink milkshake yet, it was pushing trans fluid into the coolant thankfully. The fluid was red then and it was still red when I drained it this time to do the fluid, the way the pump was starting to scream I figured what ever fluid was getting circulated would have been burnt, but I will just thank my lucky stars on this one.

    Tired of my spare flopping around like a fish out of water, I had our machine shop throw something together for me.
    I had replaced the oe bushings, but they were smoked again....so thrust bearings it is.

    Not rollers.
    An offset ball bearing.
    Have four of them, iirc each good for almost 1k lbs in side load.

    I've been spraying everything with a tan bed liner...very difficult not getting runs...I have learned to accept them and we live in peace.

    I do seem to consume a number of them.

    ^^ I have no clue how that happened.
