4runner's CEL came on a few days ago. Go to pull the codes, since it is pre-OBD2 so you have to jumper the diagnostic port. Found the EGR temp sensor unplugged(right next to port, plugged it back in, pulled code sure enough code 71(EGR fubar). Pull EFI fuse to reset, CEL out..i love free fixes, new sensor runs about $150.

i saw that you used 4' TG leafs up front and took a leaf out. i love your stance and that is my goal to sit where you are. with that being said, would you reccomend the 3'' lift? or will it start to sag vs the leaf pulled 4''.

I actually ended up putting the leafs back in. I just haven't had time to pull it again to see what happens. This springs were on my 81 for 8 years, to be honest I thought they would have been sitting lower.
Depending on what front spring hanger you use (i used a low profile hanger from Low Range Off Road) with 4" springs you could end up pretty high. To be honest it is up to you. I would like to buy brand new 3" springs

here is a pic of 85toyman's 94 (he did my SAS for me) he used a sky's front hanger and 3" trail-gear front springs to give you an idea. Hope it helps

after having a spring time flu I finally felt up to getting vertical and had some time so tackled replacing the master cylinder and brake booster
when you are short like me this thing from Harbor Freight comes in handy

the hitch mounted vice has been proving it's worth a lot lately. Bench bleeding the master cylinder went off with out any issues

When i pulled the old master cylinder there was quite a bit of corrosion inside the brake diaphragm it so I went ahead and replaced it too.

instead of doing the usual zip tying the LSPV rod up out of the way I went with a small bracket idea that 85toyman had mentioned works like a charm

with pretty much all new brake parts with the exception of the backing plates and hard lines the 4runner stops like a dime now.

^ Thats a great idea with the break rod. I always zip tied it too the underside of the bed. Haha. Yours is much classier!

Thanks rattlewagon, i remember it being wired up on my old 84. I think this will do the trick, I'll probably cut the rod down next time I am crawling around under the back

swapped out the Trail-Gear shackles that were pretty close to hitting the front body mount with the truck sitting still

shackle angle was pretty crappy due to using this X-O Fab frame brace with integrated steering box mount, with it you are limited to how far forward you can push the front spring hanger as the steering box mounts in the stock location.

it will be interesting to see how the Sky's Delrin spacers treat the spring bushings, with the steel spacers provided by trail-gear the bushings don't have a steller service life.

Nice Robb. Looks like the time you were down with the flu has given you a lot of motivation to get stuff done

For reference use: Oil Pan conversion and A340H info

and with the 3VZE pan on the 3.4L motor, the pickup will not clear the pan. So I had to take the 3VZE pickup and swap it over. But like you say the pickup hits the baffle, so needed to cut a hole in the 3.4L baffle, then you can access a bolt hole and secure it up there.

The second leg of the 3VZE pickup does not have a bolt hole on my 96 T100 3.4 to bolt up too, so I just chopped it off, seems fairly secure still so I think I will be fine.

You can see here with the baffle removed where the 3VZE pickup can bolt up, the Red square has a bolt hole, the yellow leg does not and needs to be removed.




Cut a hole in the 3.4L baffle with a cutoff wheel and now we can bolt up the 3vze pickup to the 3.4 block

.....

Automatic Transmission info for 3.0 with Auto
from this thread on Pirate
Sounds like the 3.0 with auto has an A340h

It does. I just got done tracking down trans and tcase parts for my wife's 94 3.slow build. it's a curse and a blessing because the A340H trans and tcase have to stay together and there isn't any way to substantially upgrade things unless you swap them both out. I look at it as a way to keep me from giving the wife enough power to break stuff, but it's going to be boring for me to drive.

no idea why I double posted, probably because my latest home brew is ready to drink. My Toyota buddy is over and he said ditch it and toss a stick in it,
"the 340h sucks and will go buy buy at some point, it might as well be during the swap"
figure 14 years as a mechanic for Toyota dealerships his opinion was worth passing along.

I'll cross that road when I come to it, so far I like the auto. I do plan on fixing half the equation and using this kit from Low Range Off Road to build something like this with duals from my last truck

If I end up doing a 5 speed conversion I guess I will have to order one of these

Time to do legal stuff - tire coverage

got pulled over saturday for my tires sticking out beyond the fenders and no mudflaps. Told the deputy I would get it fixed in the next few days, he said no problem.

Pulled the old mudflaps from the 81 off the shelf and looked at what I had to work with on the 4Runner. A couple of pre threaded holes...hmmm

Great re-purposing yet again dropzone. I like the easy grasp connectors, good idea. Nice touch with the LSVP rod bracket too.

There's some kinda spring nasty going around here, too. Unlike you, 5 weeks of drowning in my own snot did not inspire me to do anything at all. At least it wasn't flu-bad. Hope you're back to tip-top.

I busted out my $64 Harbor Freight Booger Splatterer (aka flux core welder) and used electronic snot to mount some light tabs

I picked up these eBay 50w Light Cannon knock offs last year. Nice thing is you can use Vision X filters on them so spots can turn into floods with one set with out the $500+ price tag

Robb those flares look like a quality product. Do you know if they are paintable?

thanks Tony, I tried to find out about the paint on their website but did not see anything. I guess I will find out in a couple of weeks.

Was trying to find a simple way to sort of hide the body line that was opened up when I swapped bumpers..dunno but it so have to do
