Ok. Got all bearings, seals, u-joints, rotors, drums and pads in and tires back on. Everything is a slow process for me. I have to stop, search the threads, watch the video, and usually buy the correct tool to replace the one I THOUGHT would work. Now removing stuff from engine so I can get it out. As you can see, she's coated with oil. Front main leaked LONG time before I figured out how to fix it.
I have a very small 12x20 shed. No electricity. Ext. Cord for lights and portable heater. I do have a new hoist, and new stand. I will figure it out IF you guys are patient. Anyway, I appreciate any input I can get. I have Haynes, a digital FSM that some wonderful person put out there, and a Brother-in-law who is parts manager of a Toyota dealership.
I will get this done, one way or another. Thanks Guys.....RG

Here We Go.

You are doing great. Slow is much better than fast and slipshod, where you might have to do it over again.

Thanks for the reply.

Thank You Millball
My truck has been down for over 4 years now. Family stuff (drama) just wouldn't let me do the job. There will be no do-overs if I can help it. I'm not wealthy but, I have the resources to do it right. Heck, I could go buy a new one but, this one is MINE. Bought it new in 1993. Much more valuable to me than anything they have on their lot. It's clean and straight.
I guess if I have one real hang up about things, it's cheap chinese junk. I would really rather not have that in my old friend........Thanks Again......RG.

Figuring it out is the best, getting it done yourself is awesome!
Agree with you about the cheap junk.

My Old Friend

Worth Saving. I live near a school. I lost count of the offers to sell it. No. Just no.

They just don't make these anymore.

That does look really sweet, especially to those of us in the salt belt. Nice!
