Terrys87 88 4Runner Restoration/Build thread

GO BY THE POST NUMBER...THE PAGE NUMBERS HAVE CHANGED. I AM SLOWLY FIXING IT.

Edited 5/8/13...I am currently working on my 86 4Runner, I add information to this build so as to combine it. The 88 is running great and have very few fixes left on it and now am doing upgrades as time and funds allow. I can be found on my 86 build located at the bottom of my signature. The 88 build isnt dead, just not much left to do to it until I get my 86 done.

I just want to introduce myself and my next project. Its an 88 4Runner with the 22re 5 speed. This is my first 4Runner that is a first gen. Been wanting one for awhile.

My plans are to restore it to how I might have ordered in 1988. I want to paint the exterior to match the interior.The interior is Red. So far Red, Tan, Grey, Silver and Black should work. I would like Black, but body work has to be perfect or it will show. Im not that good. Im thinking of a two tone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I bought it from the original owner. His youngest son got ahold of it for 6 months and it went downhill from there. It didnt have a gas tank or fuel pump, so I really dont know if it runs. I have had worse.I have replaced frames, motors, paint on my other projects.

One regret I have had is doing a project and not having before, during and after pictures. I am going to keep track on this one. This is a hobby I enjoy and will probably take me from bumper to bumper on this one.

That is my 3rd gen lurking in the background. Its been a great truck.



What it looks like now.

I got a tank out of my parts truck and it was loaded with rust and so was the pump. I surprised the truck even ran. Filter was all plugged up. I spent quite a bit of time cleaning the tank out. First I drained it and tapped the outside with a rubber hammer to break the thick rust loose. Put a little water in to avoid sparks and put some chain and rocked it back and forth to get more loose and then I let it soak with some vinegar in it. I found this on the web. It actually came pretty clean. Have heard of using The Works toilet bowl cleaner from K Mart.

http://www.mopedarmy.com/wiki/Removi...rom_a_gas_tank Several products you can use.

http://www.vjmog.com/ftopict-3687.html

I have a friend that works in a parts store and he suggested Red Kote to coat the tank. I have coated it and am waiting for my new fuel pump to come in. I ready to get the tank in and see if this thing fires up.

I dont mess with tanks in the summer. The fumes are what are dangerous.

I bought the fuel pump off of ebay from "carpartswholesale" for $27.85 plus cheap shipping. Parts store wanted $150

Part number for a new intank filter is #77023-12050. On ebay it is called a TOYOTA FACTORY NIB FUEL FILTER SUCTION TUBE DIESEL. It was selling for $4.50 when I finally found it. I paid $15 at Toyota. (83 pg 8) This filter is for carburated trucks.

I took the assembly apart and cleaned the wiper that connects to the coil. The black coil by thumb just needed the corrosion cleaned off of the little wiper.

Also the tank on the left is for a fuel injected truck. Bigger opening to allow for the fuel pump to fit in. The tank on the right is carbed and it may not show in picture is but is smaller. This tank came off of a 2wd truck.

Here it is completed. Started to working on the gas tank. The pump holder has a plugged line so that is holding me up on getting it back in. The Red Kote has dried and sealed in the rust. If I need to I will replace the tank with a new one, but it looks good as it is now. Just cant get a good picture of it. Did get get the float back in, so it is a start.

Search for the Interlux Brightside paint....it's a yacht paint and you can either roll it on or spray it on, comes out looking VERY VERY nice for how cheap it is. should be roughly $100-$130 to paint that entire 4runner.

fl8r22..I would like for you to follow along. I like your 81. Good luck finding one of those in this area. A 79-83 is my next truck on the list. A friend of mine is trying to buy an 83 that he is trying to get the owner to sell. It has sat several years. If he gets it, I am going to help him restore it. He wants to restore one for his wife. Looks like you have done alot to yours an I will be following along. Did you restore your 84-88 on your profile? That looks sharp.

camo31..I will look into that Interlux. I have quite a bit of body work to do on the passenger side. Once it warms up I plan on hitting it hard and would like to get it painted. Im sure my neighbors would like to see it looking better. They seen me with other projects and probably no telling what went through their minds. But have had a few that like to see how they turn out when finished.

Here is the tank all cleaned up and put back togther. If the weather holds up, I would like to get it in and see if it runs and what I have got. I am looking forward to that first drive. First trip will be to the carwash. It looks to have a bad oil leak somewhere.

I guess when I removed the picture from my album, it removed it from my post. I will get them back in.

I got the fuel tank in and was thinking it wouldnt be long til I get to try and start it up. NOT!! The PO cut the vent line to the tank so I will put that off for the next few days til I get it replaced. But I do want to do some updates as to what going on.

I have replaced 2 fuel pumps in the past and at about $150ish from the parts store for a new one, I thought I would look on the net for a cheaper one. I found some new ones on ebay for $25 and thougt I would try one. It looks like the orginal one. Anyone tried one of these and how have they worked for you?


UPDATE: I have over 20,000 miles and not a problem, also have used on another truck and no problems with these $25 fuel pumps.

Recently I seen a post about someone asking questions on fuel pumps. On a 4Runner you have an acess panel under the passenger rear seat, remove the 3 black screws and lift the cover. On a truck you get to pull the bed or drop the tank. I like to pull the bed myself. The lines on a truck are short and dont give you much room for dropping the tank, is the reason I pull the bed.

Switching out pumps is pretty straight forward. Just make sure you get your Positive and Negative wires correct and on the Sock/Filter there is a Silver Clip that helps hold the Sock/Filter on and the rubber piece goes in between the bracket and pump.

Also the bracket assembly you have 3 metal lines. I have always seen the return line plugged. It is the long metal line that is in a "J" style. So check it out before putting it back in the tank. Usually you get everything in the Pump but no Filter/Sock as has been my experience.



The rubber O ring on this one, I dont remember ever changing. It has been awhile since I have done one. Any body know where this goes that I am holding by the silver clip? It will be a couple of days til I put it in. Thanks

Located under passenger seat. 3 screws. You can get the fuel pump. To get the fuel guage you have to drop the tank.

The Rubber Piece is in the lower right corner that I was talking about that goes in between the bracket and pump. In the previous post.

This is just my belief so I not trying to start any arguments. The fuel is what keeps the pump cool so this is one reason I dont go below a quarter of a tank of fuel to keep from replacing a pump.

Also on the other end of the scale is over filling a tank on a newer model of car. With emissions. Manufactures have the overflow/ vent run down to your charcoal filter and will give you a Check Engine Light. If I remember right on my 01 4Runner it is code P0440. You just saturated your filter. When the pump kicks off you can go a few cents over to round up to the nearest dollar. Im not saying everything is right that I am saying, it has been my experience. But for some one new or a beginner I hope this points you in the right direction.

I got the fuel tank in and when I went to put in the pump and bracket in, I somehow broke a wire on top of the assembly. Just got it fixed so will see how it goes. It was a set back as I was looking forward to getting to possibly hear it run.

I put a battery in it and was determined to get someting accomplished. Checked the clock, wipers, but when I turned on the heater blower I could tell it had something in it throwing it out of balance. Figured a mouse made him a new home. I took the blower out and it was just full of leaves. Cleaned it out and works like a charm. Even have all of the different blower speeds. A small accomplishment. But you need to be a bendable to get the back screw on the blower.

I did notice that my Power Steering Pulley is dry and noisey. I have replaced one in the past. I checked with Toyota and they want around $100 and was unable to find one in a salvage. Some may know this but I did the bearing at Oriellys for about $20. I think it is Part number 204-FF. If that isnt it, they can find it for you. It is easily replaced.

Other accomplishment was on the 01 4Runner. Replaced the rear bumper. For you 3rd Gens, once you get the rear plastic cover off by releasing some plastic clips from the under side (about 8 clips) all of the bolts are easy to get to. There a few bolts on the bottom side of the bumper too. I was surprised at much rust was starting on the back side of the bumper. I tried to get one from a salvage and Toyota wanted alot for one. I got mine from an aftermarket. It went on good with a little effort. Would of like a original replacement.

Hey Terry.

Love the 1st gen 4runners. Very much you will like working on the 22re versus the 3vze.....parts seem to be more readily available for the 22re.

don't know anything about the gas tank or that stuff....sorry.

paint-wise......ahhhh..black is sweet but yes, indeed, you have to be flawless, and even when you are it's pretty bad......but it depends where and what you are doing bodywork-wise as to what you can do to cover.......for example....my son's black 1st gen 4runner (his build is in my sig) needed bodywork at and around all the wheel-wells....got it perfect.....could not "feel" any imperfections, but when i painted it, you could see them, so we just used undercoating around them and enameled the hell out of them....came out great.

I have limited experience.....I "rebuilt" my 22re with the exception of the pistons and crank....basically a top and front end build (and I had no experience doing this and I drive it every day now!!!) and as far as bodywork goes...same thing.....I figure stuff out as I go along.

good luck. will be watching your work. Love seeing your helpers.
