As for the engine block, unless you intend to buy or borrow all the measuring tools and spend hours educating yourself on engine measurements, you may want to get it to a builder/machine shop to be checked completely. To be ready for forced induction, you should probably be prepared to at least put in new bearings.
Yah I think I will take the block to the shop also and have it checked.

Yeah, those definitely should have been laid out in order along with the cam caps (which are fortunately labeled). Once the head is off, the buckets and cams need to be loosely assembled to the head before sending to the machine shop.
Thanks for the advice. So was planning on just dropping the head of do they need the cams also?

Right now I’m doing this. My son is doing his first valve adjustment on his 06 CRV, 😢

Well I picked up a free 2019 Tacoma TRD muffler last week with the hopes or replacing my garbage rusted out aftermarket muffler from the PO. And im happy to say it not only fit but is so quiet I didn't hear them pull it out of the bay 20 feet behind me. Im so happy with how it sounds and the work done and a toyota muffler that will outlast just about any aftermarket one.

I learned...
...while picking up all the snipped off LED's that fell to the carpet while rebuilding the third brake light ... and finding a shiny ball bearing in the process...
that evidently,
the steering box doesn't need all the balls it comes with to function. At least not on this particular '93 unit.
Obviously this isn't acceptable and I'll get it back in there asap. Just :doh:
On the flip, the 3rd brake light turned out well enough.
My 93 has the same issue with the 3rd brake light. Any particular mud forum thread you recommend?
