Spent a couple of hours swapping out my PHH hose since I've already changed out all of the other hoses in the engine compartment. For those of you who haven't done it before, it is a must if you're wanting to do any preventative maintenance that hasn't been done before. The best piece of advice....remove the AT dipstick tube. I've done too many of these, and every time I start, I try to convince myself that I can work around it...don't.

Old hose came off in 4 pieces. Not as good as the last one, but not as bad as others.

While I was at it, also replaced the heater hose on top of the thermostat that is no longer available through Toyota. Used a gates hose #18787. I'll post pics of that when I get back into town.

While I was replacing the lower coolant hoses, I figured out why the PO had two hose clamps on it. I had been driving it around on a hope and a dream. It took well over an hour to change the lower hoses after scraping and brushing off all of the mineral deposits on the intake tube. It amazes me, and I constantly ask myself why people cut corners on essential pieces of equipment. At least I know it's been done correctly now, and it'll have Toyota red in it while I own it.

@ToyotaMatt at VintageTEQparts.com hooked me up with a new alternator tensioner kit and a new washer bottle, the PO for some reason had removed the factory tensioner (probably striped it out) and the belts kept coming loose every couple of drives. Didn't want to trash the new belts so this should solve that issue. Long live the 3FE

Installed a bunch of parts in a marathon on Saturday before making it out to the Naches trail and Funny Rocks on Sunday. Spent 15 hours driving, which is more than I planned ... but that always seems to be the way days turn out when I wheel trails I haven't run before. Truck handled everything I threw at it really well.

How hard is it? It also looks a bit like fluorite.

I don't know. I don't have a hardness tester and they are so small I don't think I could test them.

According to my geology book the banded rhyolite I was busting open would have bixbite, topaz, and quarts/amethyst.

Not sure fluorite crystals would be found inside rhyolite.
