My time is very limited and skills as a mechanic aren't much better. Actually, I'm ok with the wrench, but rarely tackle the big jobs since I don't have much time now. Between flying cargo at night, building houses during the day, taking care of the kids, my Mom's place, Mother-in-Laws place, etc., etc.,, I don't have much time to work on the 4runner.
I do have the service manual for my 89 4runner. Seems like they make you take extra steps on certain things. Here's my question:
I want to remove the cylinder head on this truck for a total rebuild on the top half of the engine. I have the rocker and camshaft already removed. Can I simply unbolt the exhaust manifold and intake manifold at the head, or do I have to do what the manual says and start further "downstream", pull the head, and then remove the intake from the head?
Tips on this? Thanks.
